A Lesson in Espionage by CL Scholey - a hot novella involving Harriet Powers

On my Kindle reading list is the novella by racy writer and grandmother CL Scholey. For just $3.99 you can read "A Lesson in Espionage." Here's the promo about this eBook (highlights are mine):
"Espionage and daring intrigue in the nineteenth century? Vonnie, a woman of African-American descent, is a reclusive historian searching for her passion. A missing quilt made by Harriet Powers. Her dreams have been haunted mysteriously by the woman since her first visit to the Smithsonian when she was but a child of six. Vonnie is certain there is something of desperate importance Harriet needs her to discover. The only thing Demarco Axel needs to discover is how Vonnie became tangled up in a CIA clandestine investigation. After he kidnaps her to gain the truth, they embark on a perilous mission to unravel the secrets centered around the mysterious missing quilt..."
WOW - who would have thought Harriet Powers and her quilts would also affect literature in this way!? Have you read this story yet? Enjoy!

Update:
I did read this novella - and it's really good! Fasted-paced. I could not believe the CIA is on the trail of Harriet Powers' lost Lord's Supper Quilt! Worth a read.
