by Nora Roberts | Read by Julia Whelan

Julia Whelan expertly builds the tension in this riveting story of love, Fabergé treasures, and international intrigue. Independent and beautiful Lila Emerson, house sitter extraordinaire, gets more than she bargained for when she looks out a window and sees a murder/suicide. Enter hunky artist Ashton Archer, who wants Lila's help in solving the crime. Whelan excels at each of the accents that fill this listening pleasure, using slow and deliberate pacing to increase the suspense. Her low, sexy voice for Ash is especially spot-on as are her voices for some of Ash's snooty relatives. Whelan’s narration is a treat to be savored, and this is exactly the kind of suspense-filled love story that has made Nora Roberts an icon in the genre. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
