As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down—not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend’s Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients’ extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable. But when she witnesses a possible murder-suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as Lila knows it takes a dramatic turn. Artist Ashton Archer knows his charming, clever, and impulsive brother couldn’t have killed his girlfriend—or taken his own life. His hope of unraveling what happened lies with Lila, the only eyewitness. And even buried in grief, Ash longs to paint the woman whose deep, dark eyes seem to hold endless reserves of strength and a fiery passion. Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash in trying 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…

    I couldn't wait to listen each day and enjoyed this book immensely. Good narrator, believable characters and an excellent plot made this a winner. Nora Roberts is a good writer who delivers every time. Thank you

    Well of course its great its Nora....

  • Joan Marie D.

    Did Nora even write this one? It really didn't feel like her work. Very slow moving. Too many characters. Not enough interaction to create suspense and definitely not Nora's typical engaging dialog. Narrator didn't do enough to differentiate the males in the story. Had to re listen several times to get what was happening and by whom.

  • Shari R.

    The characters were likable but the book was very slow moving and dragged focusing too much on the story and the famous egg and not the characters.

  • Melissa M.

    This one was quite cheesy and not enough action for my liking. Disappointed

  • Catherine L

    Usually one of my favorite authors, this one was very disappointing.

  • Frances S

    This was amazing. Love the twists and turns but most of all; throughly enjoy the romance.

  • Gaynor Celotti

    I loved the flow of this book from beginning to end. The narration followed each of the characters perfectly and was so easy to listen to while oil painting.

  • Francine Brabant

    Great story. Narrator kept me engaged. Didn't want to stop listening.

  • Brenda Neal

    As always another hit from Nora Roberts. The writing made me see each scene as if I were watching a movie. I can easily give this book a 5 star rating. looking forward to hearing the next book. The reader made this book more enjoyable. She gets 5 stars also.
