Overview

Beneath the quiet charm of Martha's Vineyard, trouble is brewing. A beautiful con woman has brought her latest scheme to the exclusive island community and is wreaking havoc with several lives. Talented local artist Holly Anderson has a vested interest in exposing this conniving vixen who brazenly seduced her father into a scandalous affair and a reckless game of theft, blackmail, and possible murder. Then there's Sam Steadman, a man with a few secrets of his own. The darkly handsome photographer has come to the island to track down the thief who stole the only worthwhile possession his parents owned. Soon it's clear that Sam and Holly are after the same woman. And as lives and hearts collide, they've got to decide if they're enemies or allies, strangers...or something much, much more.

"Stockenberg is a fresh, exciting voice. Her writing is delicious!" --Jayne Ann Krentz

"Ms. Stockenberg takes her place alongside LaVyrle Spencer as a writer of depth and perception." --Under the Covers Book Reviews

"Antoinette Stockenberg is one of my all-time favorite authors...As far as I'm concerned, [she] is the only writer working today who could be an heir to Mary Stewart's romantic suspense crown." --Teresa Medeiros

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Eden Walker--a gold-digging sociopath--seduces an older man, she wreaks havoc on a close-knit Martha's Vineyard family. Soon, the gentleman's daughter, Holly Anderson, is on her trail, and right behind her is Sam Steadman, Eden's long-deserted husband. He has his own reason to find his devious wife: he recently learned that Eden had scammed his needy parents. Holly and Sam intersect and clash, then reluctantly team up to track down the elusive Eden, who's now on the run from two fresh victims writing back their money. Though haunted by Eden's seductive spell, Sam falls for fey artist Holly and tries to hide that he's still technically married. Will they get together? Will Eden receive her deserved comeuppance? Stockenberg (Keepsake) concocts a complex, fast-moving plot--peopled with winning secondary characters--as well as a humorous and tender love story. (Apr.)

Library Journal
Stunned and furious to discover that her father wants to divorce her mother for a woman half his age, folk artist Holly Anderson takes matters into her own hands and ends up joining forces with the woman's ex-husband, a photojournalist who is looking for her for an entirely different, but equally important, reason. A conniving con artist who leads everyone on a not-so-merry chase, a pair of artistic protagonists who fall in love in spite of themselves, an abundance of Martha's Vineyard charm, and an intriguing plot that is not so straightforward as it seems blend in this gently sensual story. Stockenberg (Keepsake) is a RITA Award-winning writer and lives in Massachusetts. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

This is a fast-moving, fun book that's set on Martha's Vineyard in the summer. (I didn't think the subdued cover matched the tone of the story.) Besides the satisfying and charming romance, there are family issues that a lot of people can identify with and a mystery with some twists. It all kept me turning the pages. Very entertaining.

Just finished this on my NookColor, my 4th Stockenberg to date. Each one has had true to life characters who are well defined but are not perfect and present exciting interaction in an interesting setting and story with suspense and romance. Have read Safe Harbor, Keepsake, Month at the Shore and Charmed Cottage. Bekoved is ready and waiting. Love the easy accessibikity in the Nook.
