Synopsis

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of 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. Ash longs to paint her as intensely as he hungers to touch her. But their investigation draws them into a rarified 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. . . .

Good read

This was a good solid read. The usual formula, characters you can connect with, villians you hate and the winning end. Nora knows how to draw you in the scenes. This story would be great for a Lifetime movie!

Loved Lila and her quirkiness. Can feel the energy rolling off her and how Ash gets her. The love and friendship of good friends is very evident. Great story, a must read.

Started out well by grabbing your interest also introducing the various characters very well and maintaining your interest throughout. Good storyline With a bit of history re the Russian Revolution and Faberje - fast moving ,good characters and an okay ending. I would recommend it - better than some of Nora Robert's novels.

OMG, Nora your books just keep getting better and better. I hope you write a sequel to this one as I can see more situations for Ash and Lila to get into with her book writing and his family. Please don't stop here. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

Not Nora's best work. I found it a little hard to stay interested. Usually when I read her books I can't stop until they are done. Didn't get that with this one.
