Publisher's Summary

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.

Loved it!!

I read a lot of Nora Roberts and I find them all good. However, once in a while, one of her books really gets to me. This is one of those. I loved the characters, the storyline and the narrator. Ahhhhh.... Next Nora Roberts book please!!

YES YES YES

You know they are going to end up together - why else write about it however...

Very interesting and independant characters, very interesting and insightful read.

Sandra Burr is also really great.

Again... couldn't put this book down - finished it in 2 days!

Thank you for keeping my weekends alive - especially the boring ones.

Spot on

This is certainly one of those cases where narrator and story were made for each other. The different characters and the humour characters you along the tale, until the last word has been spoken.

Total enjoyment
