Blue Smoke And Murder

by Elizabeth Lowell

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | May 16, 2008 | Hardcover

Blue Smoke And Murder is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

Jill Breck was just doing her job as a river guide when she saved the life of Lane Faroe, son of two of St. Kilda Consulting's premier operators. But when a string of ominous events—including a mysterious fire that kills her great-aunt and a furor in the Western art world raised by a dozen Breck family paintings—culminates in a threat to her life, Jill reluctantly calls in a favor.

Zach Balfour works part-time as a consultant for St. Kilda. His expertise is gathering and analyzing information from unlikely and often dangerous sources. Though he's got the skills to be a highly effective bodyguard, being a bullet catcher isn't his preferred way to spend time.

Protecting Jill will take him into familiar territory—among a strange, savagely competitive bunch of collectors who'll do anything to stay at the top. But Jill is in deeper waters than she's ever known; as she soon discovers, the perils of running wild rivers are tame compared with the hidden dangers in the high-stakes game of art collecting.

From the cozy rooms of the Breck homestead cabin to the cold multimillion-dollar galleries of the Western art circuit, Zach and Jill must race against time to unmask a ruthless killer hidden in a blue smoke of money, threats, lies, and death. . . .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a calm read EL usually puts out a great novel. This one was okay; nothing terribly exciting but not boring. Unlike some writers who mix plotline and sex, this was solely plot and nearly zero sex. So there is that lack of intensity. But there is a story and it does make for a quick weekend read.
