Art consultant Cady Briggs has a bit of a crush on occasional employer Mack Easton, owner of "Lost and Found," a company specializing in the recovery of lost or stolen artifacts. She has only talked with him over the telephone and exchanged e-mails, but it's enough to make her think of him as her Fantasy Man. Naturally, she leaps at the chance to meet him in person, even if he needs her expertise in a case involving a questionable antique helmet missing from a tacky Las Vegas "museum." Mack turns out to be every bit as exciting as Cady imagined, and he is as interested in her as she is in him. Complications abound Cady's aunt recently left her niece with a business she doesn't want but can't turn down, Mack's teenage daughter isn't thrilled to discover that her widowed father has a sex life, and Cady is beginning to have doubts about her aunt's "accidental" drowning. This is romantic suspense at its most enjoyable, enhanced by Krentz's (Flash, Soft Focus) trademark humor and quirky characters. Fans will be very happy with this entertaining and delightful read. Recommended for all popular fiction collections.

Cady Briggs was happy to get out of the family business. Aunt Vesta's antiques gallery may be a prestigious and successful business, but the stress and responsibilities weren't much fun for her, nor were the frequent comparisons to Aunt Vesta's quirky personality. Cady much prefers her art-consulting business, especially when it leads to meeting enigmas like Mack Easton. Mack's request for help tracking down a stolen Renaissance helm seems like an easy job, and a good way to get to know the mysterious man.

When Aunt Vesta dies under suspicious circumstances, Cady finds she needs to call on Mack's unique talents. Posing as Cady's "almost fiancé," Mack helps investigate the complex workings of the antique world. Sparks begin to fly, however, as everyone becomes confused about the true nature of their relationship, including Cady and Mack.

Jayne Ann Krentz's latest is sure to sell like hotcakes. Though the initial connection between hunk and heroine feels a bit awkward, their developing relationship evens out and, combined with the complex maneuverings of a corrupt antique world and the long list of murder suspects, keeps the reader hastily turning the pages toward a breathtaking conclusion.

A great romantic suspense read. Another book where the lady takes care of her own, but she doesn't care for the lead man because of past misdeeds.

Good mystery reading. Very surprising ending. Worth the read!

I read this book to page 107 and decided to give up because it became too silly for me. :) I thought the premise and plot of the novel were very intriguing involving antiques, museums, art and thievery, however the romance part of the novel was too drippy. After Cady proposed to Mack the idea of pretending to be his fiancee to pull off the "detective-work" revolving around solving the mystery, I think I really did stop to roll my eyes before putting the book down. Another thing I noticed about the book was how slow it seemed to move although it felt like I was reading for hours.

Cady Briggs and Mark Easton have worked together before, finding stolen or lost art/antiques and returning the pieces to the rightful owners. Their last meeting, however, had ended badly with Cady declaring she'd never work with him again. Now she needs help with a mystery of her own and reluctantly turns to Mark. Interesting mystery plot.
