I really enjoyed this book. There were plenty of twists and turns in the story to keep me interested and the characters were well developed. The location descriptions made me want to visit both Maine, and Florence. I'll be reading this one a second time at some point to make sure I didn't miss any clues to the ending.

I was unsure what to expect with this story but should not have second guessed anything. This book is vintage Nora Roberts: suspenseful romance at its best. A definite read.

Very good novel. I enjoy Nora Roberts for interesting plots and her strong romantic characters but just as important there is always a thought, quote, or string of words that commune with your soul translating into personal understanding of your own world.

4.5 stars from my point of view. 456 pages of intrigue based on art and art history. A good "Roberts" read.

The Maine air is bitterly cold when Dr. Miranda Jones arrives at the family home after a busy lecture tour. But her blood turns to ice when she suddenly feels the knife against her throat.
The unseen assailant steals her bags, slashes her tires, and disappears. Deeply shaken, Miranda is determined to put the experience behind her. Distraction comes when she is summoned to Italy-to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady. But instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as the leading expert in the field, the job nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question. Emotionally estranged from her mother, with a brother immersed in his own troubles, Miranda has no one to turn to...except Ryan Boldari, a seductive art thief whose own agenda forces them into a relunctant alliance.
Now it becomes clear that the incident in Maine was not a simple mugging-and that The Dark Lady may possess as many secrets as its beautiful namesake once did. For Miranda, forced to rely on herself-and a partner who offers her both unnerving suspicion and intoxicating passion-the only way home is filled with deception, treachery and a danger that threatens them all.

I really enjoyed this mystery-romance. There is one problem with the book condition. A cookie was closed inside the book and oil stained a few pages. It's still readable, I would accept it. Dust cover still on it and otherwise in good condition.
