about

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a novel about a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed and danger that brings them together—and could tear them apart...
 
When professional house-sitter Lila Emerson witnesses a murder/suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as she knows it takes a dramatic turn. Suddenly, the woman with no permanent ties finds herself almost wishing for one...
 
Artist Ashton Archer knows his brother isn’t capable of violence—against himself or others. He recruits Lila, the only eyewitness, to help him uncover what happened. Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash try to find out who murdered his brother and why. From the penthouses of Manhattan to grand Italian villas, their investigation draws them into a rarefied circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away and stolen; where what you possess is who you are; and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession...
Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestselling In Death series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good This was my very first time reading a Nora Roberts book and I enjoyed it. I think I'll pick up another one a give it a go. Story had suspense and a little romance which are both good things to have in a storyline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Collector I love romance when it is mixed with mystery, but I like the ratio to be more romance than mystery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from interesting read I really enjoyed the story. It was fun travelling from NY to Florence for a couple of days. Lila's character was witty but I liked Archer more in this story. He was a serious painter, who looked at things differently when he painted, even Lila. The way he painted her was very romantic. The story is gripping from the first chapter, with many twists and turns. It could be a great movie!
