Book Description

Nov. 17 2003 Francesca Cahill Romance Novels (Book 6)
It is March of 1902, and Francesca Cahill-Fifth Avenue heiress, undaunted political activist and intrepid amateur sleuth-has just learned of a grave new danger haunting the streets of New York. A beautiful teenage girl named Emily O'Hare is missing and Francesca fears that the girl has been abducted. Only one person can help her learn the child's fate-but Police Commissioner Rick Bragg may not want to get involved because Francesca has just stunned Rick by accepting a proposal of marriage...from none other than his own rival.

Francesca still questions her decision to marry the powerful and notorious Calder Hart. But Rick Bragg is wed to another...and his dazzling wife has just returned after four years abroad to reclaim their marriage. Francesca remains torn between the two very different men-but she desperately tries to set aside the affairs of her heart when she discovers that Emily isn't the first girl to vanish in recent weeks. And when Francesca discovers a trail of deception and lies, when someone very close to her investigation is murdered, Francesca realizes that the evil force behind the girls' abductions may try to find a way to silence her too-if she dares to uncover the truth...

Product Description

From Booklist

Unconventional, reform-minded heiress Francesca Cahill has earned a reputation as an effective amateur sleuth, primarily through her work with New York City police commissioner Rick Bragg. Asked to look into the disappearance of young Emily O'Hare, Francesca discovers that Emily is not the only pretty girl who has gone missing in the last year. Unfortunately, Francesca's partnership with Rick has now become complicated since not only has Rick's former wife returned to him, but Francesca has recently received an offer of marriage from Calder Hart, Rick's wealthy half-brother and longtime rival. While trying to unsnarl her tangled romantic interests, Francesca finds she must rely on both Rick and Calder if she is to have any chance at finding the abducted girls. The sixth in a series picks up Francesca's story after the unexpected proposal she received in Deadly Love (2001), and Joyce expertly manipulates Francesca's deeply conflicted feelings for two very different men into an elegant blend of mystery and romance simmering with sexual tension.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot June 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would like to start off by saying that the "Deadly" series is my favorite. Although I would recommend reading them in order (this is the 6th book). This book will really keep you on the edge of your seat...the pages just fly by. I think that Calder Hart is an amazing character. I can't wait for the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best So Far Feb. 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have to say that this is by far the best book in the series to date. I was so captivated by the mixture of feelings and the endless need to solve the case and be professional despite the confusion in Francesca's life. I can't wait to see what happens next

I am hooked on the Cahill novels and wondered if Brenda Joyce could keep up the intensity with another book. She delivered, and I can't wait for the next one to come out!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but it needs a better ending. Jan. 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Please know that Brenda Joyce does not conclude the series with this book. She leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat. However, I cannot continue to read the series. Please find a conclusion. These are the only books by Brenda Joyce I like. I feel almost as frustrated as Calder by Francesca's indecision and incontinuity. I think Deadly Affairs is the best of the series, and in comparison this book seems not as strong. Read at your own risk, lol.

4.0 out of 5 stars i like the book, but.... Dec 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I LIKE THIS BOOK; WELL I LIKE ALL OF THE CAHILL SERIS, BUT I'M SO CONFUSED ON WHY R.BRAGG'S WIFE IS NOW THE VICTIM AND HART IS NOW THE HERO ''THE NEW LOVE'' OF FRANCESCA LIFE.... I JUST THOUGHT THAT THESE BOOKS WERE ABOUT THE LOVE AFFAIR BETWEEN RICK AND FRANCESCA... DON'T GET ME WRONG THESE BOOKS KEEP ME ON MY TOES, BUT I STILL WANT FRANCESCA AND RICK TO END UP TOGETHER I LIKE HART BUT I HOPE HE FINDS ANOTHER LOVE.... AND THE WIFE ALL OF SUDDEN COMES BACK, AND NOW THE WIFE WE FEEL SORRY FOR??? UM I DON'T CARE IF SHE WAS HEALING THE SICK IN EUROPE NOBODY IN THIER RIGHT MIND WOULD TAKE SOMEONE BACK AFTER THEY LEFT FOR FOUR YEARS AFTER THEY WERE NEWLY MARRIED ESPECIALY A HUSBAND AND, DON'T FORGET WHY SHE LEFT HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE,BECAUSE HE DID NOT BECOME A PARTNER AT A WELL KNOWN LAW FIRM.. IF SHE IS SOOO SWEET WHY THE BIG GAP WHY NOT HAVE HER GONE FOR A YEAR OR LESS,,,, THEN I COULD EXCEPT THAT RICK STILL HAD PASSION FOR HIS WIFE. IT'S JUST SEEMS SO BIZARRE.. HART IS HIS BROTHER HE DESERVES HIS OWN STORY AND WOMAN....

This book was much better than the last two. I hope that Ms. Joyce will continue developing the characters since she is only writing on Deadly book a year.

I LOVE LOVE this series of Francesca Cahill novels, but HATE HATE HATE the wait! I read them in 1 or 2 days at most, and then I starve, waiting for the next installment. This is torture!
I love all the characters, I love the mystery and the sensuality and the tragedy.
Very well done, Brenda!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, but... Dec 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story was very good. I love the characters. However, Ms. Joyce needs a better editor. While not as many errors in this book as the previous "Deadly..." book, she still referred to the wrong character mentioning something that had happened. A bit confusing and breaks into the mood of the story when you have to make sense of a statement and come up with "oh, she meant Emily, not Debbie". Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
