Publisher's Summary

At Ballantyne and Company, a genteel but failing auction house in the heart of London, Kick Keswick has been an expert on painting, furniture, and objets d'art for over 30 years. When Ballantyne falls victim to a corporate takeover by robber baron and womanizer Owen Brace, Kick is the next target for Brace's idea of romantic merger and acquisition. Elegant and self-possessed, she is at first swept off her feet by Brace's forceful approach to love, romance, and sensual pleasure. But Brace has other games to play, and his affair with Kick, far from being sincere, is simply one more strategy in his welter of scheming and dealing. When she realizes this, Brace's treachery makes her blood boil. Her revenge is complex and total.

Not really a mystery

While this book was reasonably enjoyable, it isn't a mystery. It's more of a romance novel/womens' self-sufficiency/men are dogs kind of thing. Rather mixed up, I thought.

Cotton Candy Listening

I loved listening to this book. It is light and witty and delicious. My dog got a lot of extra walks so that I could keep listening. The reader is wonderful. Don't expect great literature, but for pure fun, you can't go wrong.
