RITA Award Winner, Best Romantic Suspense, 1995

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts unveils the intriguing world of antiques dealing, where an independent woman discovers the price of breathless desire - and the schemes of an obsessed killer...

Dora Conroy has a passion for antiques - and any other rarities she can acquire for her quaint Philadelphia shop. A seasoned dealer, she knows all the tricks of the trade. But she is unprepared for the deadly consequences when she purchases a few curiosities at an auction - and unknowingly brings home a priceless cache that makes her the target of an international criminal. Entwined in a reckless chase, Dora turns to her new neighbor, Jed Skimmerhorn, a cop who’s turned in his badge - and whose desire for lovely Dora puts him back in the line of fire. Fighting their attraction while falling in love, they find that hidden riches can have a most ordinary façade. And that possession can be a lethal obsession...

Loved it!

Not really one for a soppy romance but I couldn't "put this down". The narrator had an insipid and somewhat annoying voice but rather than be annoyed, I was taken in by her portrayal of the characters. And not long in I realised the female protagonist had that EXACT voice and to boot, was and adorable character. BRAVO! 👏👏👏👏

Poor 1980’s Mills&Boon

This is a tacky 1980s Mills and Boon wrapped in a Nora Roberts Jacket Cover. The blatant attempt at romanticising Intimate Partner Violence is both sad and sickening. I own just about every NRoberts novel written and have never been more disappointed.

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.

Hidden Riches

Any additional comments?

Liked the book and story but not the RECORDING as there is a lot of back ground noise starting about 3/4 the way through the first part of this book. Very distracting and when i asked if there was a better quality recording of the book i got a email back from Audible full of questions to be answered. I can't be bothered going through it all so am disappointed in the support from Audible and Audio quality of the first part of this book. I have never had an Audio problem before, just wanted a better quality recording or perhaps my credit back. :(

Not great

I typically enjoy Nora Roberts but this book is set in modern times while the narrator’s voice belongs in an old fashioned book. Pride and Prejudice would be a great book for her voice just not anything recent. I couldn’t even finish listening, had to turn it off.

Couldn't finish this one...

I made it about half way through, and I like the story, know what to expect from the author.... but I couldn't handle the narration. And it's not that it is bad, but the voices she used for many of the characters just didn't sit well with me. I would be pulled out of the story and get lost in trying to analyze what bothered me so much about how she was delivering that character's lines. I kept trying to move past it but couldn't. I didn't listen to a sample before picking this up, so the fault is mine. :-(

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

Not the best

By no means my favourite Nora Roberts book.
The narrator put me to sleep faster than a Mogadon
