The story was longer than it needed to be. Some scenarios almost too crazy to be true. Main characters are well written and evenly matched. Always a fan of Nora Roberts books

This is a book where bodies are literally flying. The book starts with Lila, a house-sitter, seeing a body fly out of a high rise. Subsequent events put her and Ashton in grave danger. They navigate it smoothly all the time living perilously close to danger. The romance in this book is of a an Elizabeth/Darcy Jane/ Bingley type and proceeds satisfactorily. All in all a very entertaining read.

As always, Nora Roberts delivers a fast-paced, but delightfully in-depth mystery/romance. I don't know how she has packs so much character development and plot twists into one book while still maintaining that light-read feel.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "A fun, easy summer read. Lila witnesses a murder while looking through binoculars into a window. She then gets drawn into a mystery involving two missing Faberge eggs."

I loved this book and thought it was one of Nora's best, right up there with The Witness!

The book started off with an interesting heroine but it got very boring and predictable.

Awesome book! If you like The Search and The Witness (also by Nora Roberts) you will want to read this book.

i read all nora roberts books. i find this one way to drawn out and it could not keep my interest. i stopped reading after awhile because there are way to many books out there that would far out rate this one.
