Overview

Carla Neggers' sizzling novels are loved for their deliciously funny dialogue, electrifying suspense, and heart-stopping romance. Here, the New York Times bestselling author presents a fast-paced, scintillating tale of love, art, and danger....
JUST BEFORE SUNRISE
Annie Payne realizes her dream when she moves to San Francisco and opens an art gallery. But when she accepts a secret commission to bid for a painting going on the auction block, she finds herself thrown into a haunting swirl of events linked to a five-year-old unsolved murder. Who is this secret client?
Marina owner Garvin MacCrae was determined to have the portrait of his late wife, and knows of only one person who would want it enough to outbid him. Could the intriguing art dealer who represented the auction winner hold the key to the mystery of his wife's death? Working together to untangle a murderer's clues, Garvin and Annie strike so many sparks off each other that they could start another San Francisco fire -- a four-alarmer fueled by an explosive mix of suspicion, attraction, and love.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Neggers turns out a competent but lackluster romance-mystery, not quite up there with the big girls'. Annie Payne (who is always called by her full name, as in "Marry me, Annie Payne") relocates to San Francisco with her huge Rottweiler, Otto, after her cottage on the Maine coast is swept into the Atlantic Ocean one stormy night. She's comfortably ensconced as a gallery owner in the scenic city by the Bay-all warmed up with home-baked muffins and cups of cappuccino-until she buys a portrait at an auction on behalf of an eccentric artist. The portrait causes Annie to become involved in an unsolved murder-and with the murdered woman's handsome husband, Garvin McRae. In a talky finale that precludes any suspense, Otto floors the killer, whose identity is never really a mystery. (Mar.)
