Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts unveils the intriguing world of antiques dealing, where an independent woman discovers the price of breathless desire—and the schemes of an obsessed killer…

Dora Conroy has a passion for antiques—and any other rarities she can acquire for her quaint Philadelphia shop. A seasoned dealer, she knows all the tricks of the trade. But she is unprepared for the deadly consequences when she purchases a few curiosities at an auction—and unknowingly brings home a priceless cache that makes her the target of an international criminal. Entwined in a reckless chase, Dora turns to her new neighbor, Jed Skimmerhorn, a cop who’s turned in his badge—and whose desire for lovely Dora puts him back in the line of fire. Fighting their attraction while falling in love, they find that hidden riches can have a most ordinary façade. And that possession can be a lethal obsession…

Set in Philadelphia, the story brings together Jed, a strong, brooding man and a discontented police captain and Dora Conway, intelligent, independent woman and an antiques dealer. Jed has no desire to get connected with anyone as he fights his own demons, but can't help himself. There's intrigue and suspense around antique smuggling, humor and romance, and cute interplay that keeps the reader hooked. A fun read!

I was pleasantly surprised by this romantic mystery which was chock full of interesting characters, witty banter and an original story line. Maybe I had read so many Roberts novels that I stayed away for a couple of years and this novel really reminded me why she is so popular. This was an easy read, romantic and sexy and the colorful charactersr really came to life with this fast paced suspense.

This was the first Nora Roberts I ever read. I got it from my mom and she is probably never going to get it back. I love this book with the diversity of the personalities and the sparks that are always flying. If you haven't read this, you dont know Nora Roberts.

This book is awesome. I never usually pick up a book that is longer than two hundred pages, but after being recommened this book, I could not put it down, and I was soon on page 453, the last page. The romance between Jed and Dora is a funny story by itself in the book because they both fight to get the last word in. The story on the whole is very suspenseful.

This is one of Nora Robert's early hardback books. I have read this multiple times over the years and it does not feel dated as it was written in the late 1990's. Do have laugh when a phone booth is used! Very likable characters in realistic situations. Highly recommend.

If you love Robert's books, you will love this one. She has written a love story with wonderful characters. Very warm and real family (with faults) and a very differt murder mystery.

Nora Roberts is a brilliant writer who commands attention. I wish she and other best selling authors would begin to write again instead of releasing all old books with new titles and covers.

Hidden Riches is Nora Roberts at her wittiest. The slapshot humour and light banter of the characters, along with their realistic yet commical situations, will make you fall in love with them time and again. Ms. Roberts offers everyday life twined with the suspence of the extraordinary.

This is one of Ms. Roberts best. The plot escalates and the interaction between the main characters is humourous and romantic. A must read for those who like suspense as well as romance -- they will fall in love with Jed and Dora.

I loved this book becasue of Dora and her adorable personality; I felt like I knew her by the 50th page! Skimmerhorn is a hot hero, too and all the supporting characters are wonderful. I have read several Nora Roberts books in the last year since I discovered them and this is one of my absolute favorites!

Review for the abridged audio CD read by Sandra Burr.I'm a bit surprised to find this book so highly praised on Amazon.co.uk; I found it a bit violent and very cheesy. I was listening to the abridged audio CD, perhaps it was not particularly well abridged, but I don't think that could have drastically altered the story-line. The ending was so predictable and the means of getting there not very inspiring. I have listened to one other Roberts, Midnight Bayou, also an abridged audio CD, but definitely a more enjoyable listen.The story revolves around Dora, who purchases several items for her antiques shop from an auction, it turns out that they are wanted by a ruthless killer, for his personal collection. He will stop at nothing to retrieve them. Meanwhile the sexy hero, Jed, an ex-cop, moves into the spare appartment in Dora's block. They have a love/hate relationship as events progress towards a denouement, both with the crime and the romance.Easy listening for a long car journey but I'm undecided as to what I'm going to do with all the unread Nora Roberts books on my shelves.

Hidden Riches was one of my favorites. Since I purged my shelves of many old titles long ago, I recently got the electronic version. I still couldn't put it down after all these years. So glad I bought it. Now I can reread a favorite title from time to time.
