Rated 5 out of 5 by from Michaels does it again! As I have come to expect from Barbara Michaels a-k-a Elizabeth Peters and other pseudonyms, the book is wonderfully entertaining. Great story line, believable characters and a satisfying conclusion. You will enjoy this book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid plot, good characters and lots of excitement This is the first Barbara Michaels book I've read and I enjoyed it. Michaels does a very good job creating suspense and uncertainty about who's who and what's really going on. At first I was a bit annoyed with main character Karen, because she appeared to be a wimpy dish-rag who was willing to let people walk all over her. But she very quickly gets her gumption back and starts to build a new life for herself, having left her jerk of a husband and moved back to Washington where she has friends and family to help her get going. Karen sort of falls into starting a new business selling vintage clothes thanks to some rather eccentric friends willing to sell her their old and valuable clothes. She even has two men in the equation, either one of whom could be "the" guy for her. But things are not all good. There are incidents of vandalism in the home of Karen's Aunt which she is house-sitting in while she gets her clothing business off the ground. There are also intruders breaking into the house. But it seems nothing is actually taken in these incidents, so what are the bad guys after??? Well, you'd have to read the book to get THAT answer! The characters in this book are colourful and likeable, the story is interesting and exciting, and the potential for romance adds a nice spice to the other things that are going on. This was a fast, easy read but very enjoyable.”
