Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

When Eden Walker--a gold-digging sociopath--seduces an older man, she wreaks havoc on a close-knit Martha's Vineyard family. Soon, the gentleman's daughter, Holly Anderson, is on her trail, and right behind her is Sam Steadman, Eden's long-deserted husband. He has his own reason to find his devious wife: he recently learned that Eden had scammed his needy parents. Holly and Sam intersect and clash, then reluctantly team up to track down the elusive Eden, who's now on the run from two fresh victims writing back their money. Though haunted by Eden's seductive spell, Sam falls for fey artist Holly and tries to hide that he's still technically married. Will they get together? Will Eden receive her deserved comeuppance? Stockenberg (Keepsake) concocts a complex, fast-moving plot--peopled with winning secondary characters--as well as a humorous and tender love story. (Apr.)

From Library Journal

Stunned and furious to discover that her father wants to divorce her mother for a woman half his age, folk artist Holly Anderson takes matters into her own hands and ends up joining forces with the woman's ex-husband, a photojournalist who is looking for her for an entirely different, but equally important, reason. A conniving con artist who leads everyone on a not-so-merry chase, a pair of artistic protagonists who fall in love in spite of themselves, an abundance of Martha's Vineyard charm, and an intriguing plot that is not so straightforward as it seems blend in this gently sensual story. Stockenberg (Keepsake) is a RITA Award-winning writer and lives in Massachusetts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Searching for Eden.... April 29 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Holly and Sam meet in Martha's Vineyard where Holly is an artist and a resident. Sam is searching for his ex-wife, Eden. Eden has taken an object of value from Sam's parents. Holly would like to find Eden also. Sadly, Eden has taken Holly's father. And life for Holly's mother, her sister, and herself has been thrown into turmoil. Sam keeps his identity hidden from Holly. And, for a while, he witholds himself from her completely. Holly pursues Sam, in spite of misgivings. And the relationship eventually progresses into a romance. The characterizations of both Holly and Sam, were very complete. However, I found the romance itself, lacking. Sam is almost rude to Holly; and, I couldn't see where their eventual feelings for each other, came from. The love scenes themselves, were more warm, rather than hot.
The main reason I would not give SAFE HARBOR a better rating is due to my own expectations (right or wrong). I wanted to get to know the "bad girl Eden" a little better. Unfortunately, she only makes a couple appearances. Also, I was looking for more confrontations between characters like Eden, Holly's parents, Sam and Holly etc. Instead, I read about Holly's sister, her sister's children, and her sister's bad marriage. The book had little good to say about any marriage, of any of the main characters.
Locale made this book a good read. Also, I enjoyed Ms. Stockenberg's writing. It's very easy to turn the pages of this book. Maybe not quite 4 stars--but, certainly better than 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great talent in the romance genre April 9 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
On Martha's Vineyard, accompanied by the beautiful Eden Walker, Eric Anderson sails away, leaving behind a distraught wife and two adult children. At about the same time, Sam Steadman's parents inform him that his estranged wife Eden has vanished after they gave her a valuable sixteenth century Durer engraving. Sam vows to regain what he believes was stolen from his naive parents. He traces Eden to the Anderson home where he meets Holly. Sam hides the truth from Holly, but tries to enlist her help.

When blood is found all over the Anderson yacht and Eden is missing, the police suspect Eric is a killer. However, Eden reappears and tries to get Sam to intercede with two vicious individuals chasing after her. Meanwhile, Sam and Holly fall in love. However, he knows that when she learns who he really is, their relationship could end. Holly still hurts from her father's betrayal and trust is critical to her.

Romance readers have quickly discovered how entertaining an Antoinette Stockenberg novel is as her books become KEEPSAKEs requiring A CHARMED PLACE to be kept. Her latest tale, SAFE HARBOR is a captivating contemporary romantic intrigue that centers on dysfunctional relationships. The story line is fun because the charcaters appear so real. Ms. Stockenberg has written another triumph that will thrill sub-genre fans.
