Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a novel about a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed and danger that brings them together—and could tear them apart...
 
When professional house-sitter Lila Emerson witnesses a murder/suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as she knows it takes a dramatic turn. Suddenly, the woman with no permanent ties finds herself almost wishing for one...
 
Artist Ashton Archer knows his brother isn’t capable of violence—against himself or others. He recruits Lila, the only eyewitness, to help him uncover what happened. Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash try to find out who murdered his brother and why. From the penthouses of Manhattan to grand Italian villas, their investigation draws them into a rarefied circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away and stolen; where what you possess is who you are; and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession...

    This was a fun, suspenseful book to read. Although it was completely predictable, it was fun to see how everything would be tied together.
  • Best of Nora Robert’s work.

    This was a joy to read from the first page to the last. One of the rare finds that is so good you can’t put it down until the end. It is hard to find a book that has everything. The excitement and the way you feel like you have found your new best friends !
  • Well worth adding to your collection!

    The concept for the book is okay, and is evening exciting at parts. The main issue is that the dialogue is awful, the characters are relatable and are so one dimensional. It's almost painful to read parts where they're speaking to each other because all I could think was, no one talks like that! I'm generally a Nora Roberts fan, so I'm not sure why this book seems less realistic and true to form than usual. I would also add that parts of the plot, especially in the beginning, take HUGE leaps that it expects you to just go along with. For example, the two main characters meet unexpectedly, by just happening to be in the same place at the same time, then happen to be followed by the killer for a reason that is loose at best, then become soul mates in like three days, and begin an adventure?? Sorry but it just didn't work for me. I keep having to make myself finish reading.
