Hidden Riches Author:Nora Roberts Antiques dealer Dora Conroy and her tenant, former cop Jed Skimmerhorn, discover that the painting she purchased at auction is a magnet for an international smuggler who will stop at nothing to reclaim his hidden riches.
Wonderful book! Highly engaging, completely engrossing!! Great balance of romance and suspense, murder and intrigue! Couldn't put it down! Turned to a prune reading it in the tub, as I didnt want to stop reading it long enough to get out of the bath! lol. :)
This was a great example of Nora Roberts' easy to read, yet strangely hard to put down books. It's about a young woman who operates an antiques shop, and some intrigue after picking up some oddities at an auction, then the romance with her sort-of-ex-cop neighbor. A very good read, thoroughly enjoyable.
When antiques dealer Dora Conroy purchases a small painting and other unique items at an auction, she didn't know that she would become a target of International Smugglers. A few days after the purchase, her store was broken into. Dora also discovers that another dealer who bought items at the same auction has been murdered. She asks her new tenant, Jed Skimmerhorn for help. Jed is currently taking leave from the Philadelphia Police Department and has just moved into the apartment above Dora's antique store. Another break-in, this time in her apartment, lets Jed and Dora know they are involved with some shady characters who will stop at nothing to get their merchandise back.
This is an entertaining romantic suspense story. We know upfront who is behind the break-ins and murders, but it is fun to watch Jed and Dora piece everything together. Highly recommend! My rating: 4.5 Stars.
Dora Conroy loves antiques and acquires some for her shop, while at a nn auction. She becomes the target of an international criminal when she unwittingly buys goods that were destined for him. There is a chase and a love affair. Good stuff!
