Book Description

Aug. 1 1994
When Dora Conroy, a Philadelphia antiques dealer, purchases a curious selection of auction items - objects she judges to be humorous novelties, she unknowingly becomes the deadly focus of an international smuggler. When robberies and death surround her merchandise, Dora seeks help from her intriguing upstairs tenant, former cop Jed Skimmerhorn. They discover a shadowy path leading across the continent to the smuggler, a man who will stop at nothing to recover his hidden riches. Like the treasures he craves, Dora and Jed find they are susceptible to his crushing grasp.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

There are many riddles to unravel in Nora Roberts's latest novel before the chain of seemingly random murders and robberies swirling around a lovely Philadelphia antiques dealer can be resolved. There's no mystery, however, about why Roberts is a bestselling author of romances and mainstream novels: she delivers the goods with panache and wit. This time out, she skillfully blends a stirring love story with nonstop suspense, effortlessly shifting from melodrama to light comedy. Antiques dealer Dora Conroy's hidden riches start with the painting she bids for at a local auction, unaware of the treasure it conceals. Then there's her new tenant, handsome, brooding Jed Skimmerhorn, who moves into the apartment above her shop. Though the ex-cop and scion of a wealthy Philadelphia family first appears rude and rough, he surprises Dora with acts of tenderness. And Dora needs plenty of TLC after her shop is broken into, she's nearly raped and she learns that others who purchased goods from a particular shipment at the auction are turning up dead. Joining forces with Dora to track down the culprits behind the thefts and murders, Jed is drawn into the life of the effervescent Dora and her endearingly eccentric theatrical family. Readers will be too. Reader's Digest Condensed Book; Literary Guild and Doub le day Book Club alternate .

From Library Journal

Dora, a dealer of antiques, purchases a new selection of curios to sell in her shop. The shipment she receives, however, is intended for a ruthless smuggler of priceless treasures who will do anything-even kill-for the return of the items. Robbery and death surround the curios, and Dora and former cop Jed probe the mystery, touched by their growing attraction for each other. This is a fine story with a well-paced plot and interesting scenery. The relationship between Jed and Dora is often humorous and occasionally steamy as the two protagonists grow closer. Although some of the characters are stereotypical, this latest from the author of Honest Illusions (Audio Reviews, LJ 6/1/93) is a satisfying, comfortable listening experience. Narrator Sandra Burr brings the story to life with a creative assortment of voices. This is an excellent addition to any fiction collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book Nov. 9 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An OUTSTANDING read - I only wish Nora Roberts would make a series of books based on Dora and Jed. Dora's colorful, warm family getting mixed up in "intrigue" and dragging Dora into it, Dora helping Jed out on a case or two with her unique talents and knowledge - I can see many wonderful mysteries and adventures in their lives that I'd love to read about. This book was just too wonderful, the charicters too rich and warm, it leaves the reader wanting MORE. I was given this by a friend who insisted I read it. I'm not normally into this genre of books, but it worked out well. Must also recommend the books "Kite Runner" "O Pioneers!" by Cather, and "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Lee--are are great though not that new.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best July 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading this, and I've read about 50 of her books, and this is one of my favorites. Dora, the main character is amazing, and never quits trying to defeat the villian, even when she's not sure who it is. There is a wonderful cast of characters, and you fall in love with all of them. And you are truly upset, when they are upset, and happy when they are happy. I highly recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A well balanced book. May 26 2004
By Jane W
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have only read a few of Nora Roberts's books and have never been a great fan until now. This book has what a romantic suspense book should have, a great balance of both. Most books lack in one or the other. What I also liked is that the suspense take hold of you early on and stays until end and the characters are well developed. I hope to find more like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars great read! Jan. 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I laughed out loud so many times reading the book. Nora's very good with sneaking small funny details in her books that catch you off guard. "My dear Izzy, the deed is done!" :P I think this book mixes the right amount of suspense and romance, and humour, which makes it a very engaging read. Yay to you, Nora!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great One!!! Sept. 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was interesting from page one and remained interesting until the end. Dora was a gem, a real delight. Jed (didn't like that name) was a good hero, too. I promise, you'll not be bored with this one, as the plot Nora Roberts wrapped around the romance was very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars This version needs special equipment July 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
I was amazed when I received this cassette set from Amazon.com to find it is double taped (5 cassettes instead of 7 or 8 cassettes) and needs a two speaker system(You have to switch from speaker a to b four times for each tape) or an adapter(only available by the cassette company.) Story is excellent as I have read the book but am now unable to hear the tape on a regular tape player. Beware of this situation before you buy it. Also, Amazon.com, please make note of this situation when describing the specifics of the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nora Roberts does it again! March 9 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The novel starts off with Jed Skimmerhorn, and ex-police officer. He moves into an apartment just above Dora's Parlor. Dora Conroy is an ex-actor who opened her own business selling antiques and collectibles. She is Jed's new landlord.
At an auction, Dora wins a few boxes of artwork and various trinkets, not knowing that they will get her into a lot of trouble with some smugglers and bring her closer to Jed.
This is an incredible romantic thriller. It was the first Nora Roberts novel I have ever read, and it inspired me to read many others.
