Book Description

April 15 2002 Francesca Cahill Novels (Book 3)
As the heiress to a vast fortune amassed by her millionaire father, Francesca Cahill's life should be mapped out for her: find an eligible suitor, marry, and have children. But Francesca is an unconventional young lady who is not about to give up her knack for sleuthing--even though she was almost killed in her last outing...

Murder strikes once again in the seamy underbelly of New York's high society, exposing scandalous secrets and unleashing an intense investigation into one of the most brutal crimes the city has ever known. Francesca must join forces with Rick Bragg, New York City's Police commissioner and the mans he cannot resist loving, as their search takes them through a twisted labyrinth of menacing lies, corruption, and a passion that refused to be denied...

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting book July 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Even though this is the third book in the series, it was the first one that I read. I thought it was wonderful and addictive and as a result I have purchased every book in the series thus far and have read them several times. The mystery is good and the love triange relationship is sooo interesting. A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

I really love the "Deadly" series, and I just finished this one. I can`t wait to read "Deadly Desire" to see how the love story continues! Maybe I am wrong, but in the end I think Calder Hart will marry Francesca, for I think he is the better man for her. He is really exciting and sexy, the "more than meets the eye" type. For my taste, Rick is far too good and moral (but maybe he isn`t and is also responsible for the failure of his marriage?). I am looking forward for all the next books and would love if someone would like to mail me to share one`s opinion about the books!

4.0 out of 5 stars The far! April 29 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book the best.... so far. I think it's because we are learning more about the characters. I find it interesting that Miss Cahill is so quick to make up an excuse for Bragg being married, but she ripped into her brother in-law for his affair. I keep wondering if that will ever be fully addressed in book 4. I do hope she goes with Calder Hart and not Bragg. Calder is much more intersting than Bragg, and I think he really cares about her. Can't wait for Book 4 to see how it all ends!

4.0 out of 5 stars DEADLY AFFAIRS is Joyce's beautiful coup de grace April 25 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Writers take several experiments to get it right - and Joyce in her third installment of the Deadly series, Deadly Affairs, triumphs gracefully as she juggles a sleuthing mystery and stunning revelations on passion and family ties beautifully. Her protagonist, social reformer Francesca Cahill renders her sleuthing services this time to Lydia Stuart, checking on her husband who she suspects he is having an affair. Her outing gets haywired when she discovers a female corpse branded with a cross. A serial killer is on the loose - and Fran must team up with Bragg to find out the connection before a third woman is victimized.
Blending a more credible and intricate mystery this time, Brenda Joyce provides delicious twists and complexity within the plethora of characters. Every page in the book holds surprises and is emotionally-gripping with family melodramas, feuds between brothers (Bragg and Hart), blossoming passion between Evan and Maggie (gasp!) and the struggle in Fran's and her sister's love-life. The story moves dramatically fast and is woven tightly through Joyce's atmospheric prose. This book is summarily, Joyce's most adroit coup de grace yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SERIES OF BOOKS BY BRENDA JOYCE April 19 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I stumbled across a Brenda Joyce book by accident in the hospital I work in. Ever since reading Fires of Paradise, I was hooked. The deadly series is as intriguing if not better than any mystery/romance I have ever read. The romance between Francesca and Bragg is wonderful and the characters and storyline leave me wanting more. I cannot wait for the 4th book Deadly Desire to come out!!
Thank you Brenda Joyce!!
