Welcome to the Takeover + Review Blitz for Knowing You by Tracie Peterson hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Tracie Peterson is an author who I know will provide me with an extraordinary reading experience each and every time. Her impeccable research, attention to details, well-developed plots, and memorable characters are what brings me back to her novels over and over. It doesn’t hurt that each book also usually includes a believable romance as well as a bit of danger and suspense mixed into the narrative.

Knowing You met my every expectation. The final book of the Pictures of the Heart series, it features May Parker whose mixed Japanese-American heritage has plagued her for her entire life. She never felt a part of either world and usually escaped into her art. While working as a camera girl at the  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in 1909 Seattle, May is reunited with her childhood defender Lee Munro, a police detective working the exposition. As they spend time together, they realize that they care for each other but they have more than one hurdle to overcome if they are to have a life together.

An art forger provides the danger and suspense in Knowing You as Lee and May work together to prevent the theft of a Japanese samurai armor that is on display. Their faith is put to the test as they attempt to catch the thieves plus overcome the extreme racism of Lee’s family.

Another wonderful book by one of my must read authors, Knowing You is well worth your time.

Could a captivating art exhibit hold the key to truth–and love?

Budding artist May Parker is captivated by the Japanese exhibits at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition and longs to know more about her mother’s heritage–which her mother refuses to speak of because of the heartache she left behind in Japan. Wanting to experience more of the exhibits, May works as a Camera Girl–but her curiosity leads her into danger when a suit of samurai armor becomes the target of an elusive art forger.

After ten years apart, May is reunited with her childhood friend Lee Munro, a police detective assigned to keep a watchful eye on the exposition. Their friendship immediately begins to blossom with hints of something more, but when they become entangled in a dangerous heist involving the samurai armor and their love is threatened, can they overcome the odds against them?
