Publisher's Summary

Deadly secrets are buried on Amber Beach...Donovan International is a power to be reckoned with in the dazzling and cutthroat worldwide gem trade -- and is therefore a target for the murderous greed of unscrupulous competitors. Though a shrewd businesswoman, Honor Donovan has been effectively shut out of the dangerous family enterprise by the Donovan males -- until her favorite brother, Kyle, mysteriously vanishes along with a fortune in stolen amber. Now, linking up with "fishing guide" Jake Mallory -- whose previous association with the Donovans has bred mistrust and suspicion -- Honor sets out for the Pacific Northwest in search of answers. But old wars and new politics have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe into a deadly game. And suddenly, elusive trust can be the only salvation -- and death the penalty for deceit -- if Honor and Jake hope to survive the perilous intrigues surrounding a breathtaking lost Czarist treasure known as the Amber Room ...


Audible Editor Reviews

Robin Rowan's sultry voice tells the story of Honor Donovan's search for her missing brother, Kyle, and the millions of dollars worth of amber he has stolen from Russia. Honor isn't the only person looking for Kyle and his goods. Jack Mallory, a local amber broker and boat jockey, hires on to teach Honor to run her boat while searching for her brother in the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest. With light tones and a breezy style, Rowan keeps pace with the ups and downs of Honor's emotions. At the same time, the tension is palpable as Jake and Honor carry out their search while avoiding the irate Russian gangsters Kyle is mixed up with. The mystery zigzags a few times before settling into a steady plot and a surprising ending.

Good Story BUT...

In part 2 of the story, there is a bit of a mixup. The story jumps ahead about 15 minutes and the story continues. After about 15 minutes it jumps back to the original spot and when 15 minutes are goes back to the end of the first jump.

That is the only complaint about this book. The story itself is very enjoyable.

Love this whole series

This is the first of the series and I have loved them from the beginning. I read the books so many times they are falling apart and was so pleased to see them on audible. Now I can listen to them over and over. The narrator did a very good job for the book. The author is very descriptive about the region and makes you want to go to the san juan islands to go salmon fishing. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes romantic suspense.
