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.

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.

As always, Nora Roberts has created quirky, interesting characters inhabiting an engaging, well-researched plot. Each time I read one of her books, I get the feeling that she finds something interesting to research and then creates a story to go along with it. This time, the storyline follows a missing Russian Faberge egg that gets the main character's brother killed. The female main character witnesses this murder in the style of Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window. This is a well written and executed story that reads quickly and is enjoyable. ( )

A very typical Nora Roberts romantic suspense novel with mostly believable and realistic characters in a mostly unbelievable but well-researched and mildly fascinating Dangerous Situation(tm).
It's probably just me, but at this point in my life (early 40's) I'm tired of reading about fabulously rich people falling in love while outwitting a Generic Bad Guy. ( )

Another respectable, but surprisingly violent, thriller from Nora Roberts. This audiobook kept me entertained but the main takeaway for me was all the fascinating information about Faberge eggs. ( )
  AngeH | Jan 2, 2020 |
When Nora Roberts dumps the romance-trilogy format for which she's best known, she's capable of creating a ripping good yarn, and this is one of them.

When house-sitter Lila Emerson witnessed a brutal murder occur in the apartment opposite hers (shades of 'Rear Window'), she's drawn into a dangerous web of deceit, murder, and obsession, all centering around the recovery of one of the Imperial Fabrege Eggs, created for the family of Tsar Nicholas.

There's plenty of adventure here, some really heavy-duty villains, and -- this being a Roberts novel -- plenty of romance and steamy sex scenes. There's also the familiar two-guys/two-girls who each end up two-couples, and virtually everyone is stupid rich.

Quibbles aside, it's a meaty fantasy and an enjoyable read. ( )

I really enjoyed Lila, although some of her resistance felt a little forced, but it felt a little like it fell flat in places, and Ash was a little pushier than I like. And Jai didn't feel like a well enough developed villain for me. ( )
