Descripción

Eugenia Swift is a young woman of singular sensibilities, a connoisseur of beauty...and naturally inclined to tackle even the most difficult tasks on her own. As the director of the Leabrook Glass Museum, she's been asked to travel to Frog Cove Island an artistic have near Seattle to catalog an important collection of art glass belonging to the late Adams Daventry. But thanks to unsavory rumors surrounding Daventry's death, the museum insists that Eugenia take along Cyrus Chandler Colfax a rough-hewn private investigator whose taste in glass runs to icy cold bottles filled with beer.

When Colfax declares they must pose as a couple, Eugenia protests in terms as loud as his Hawaiian shirts. She's loath to disclose the secret purpose of her trip: investigating the disappearance of her good friend Nellie Grant...the late Adam Daventry's lover. Meanwhile, the green-eyed calm of Colfax's gaze shields his own hidden agenda locating a priceless Daventry treasure that will help him avenge an old wrong.

While Eugenia has always kept her heart on a shelf, their very lives soon depend on making an utterly convincing couple. Because among the chic galleries of Frog Cove Island lurks a killer, and their only chance for survival is the boldest, most artful collaboration they can dare to imagine.

At once a fascinating look at today's avant-garde art world and a scintillating adventure, Sharp Edges hums with the energy of a couple who bring to mind a thoroughly modern Bogart and Bacall. Add deft displays of wit and a wicked twist, and you've got another winner from Jayne Ann Krentz!

    You know something of what you're getting into when you open this book and look at the epigraphs:Forged in fire, neither liquid nor solid, capable of transmitting or reflecting light, glass is proof that there is magic in the world. - From the introductory notes of the Catalogue of the Leabrook Glass Museum by Eugenia Swift, Museum DirectorThe finest glass is a glass that's filled with really good beer - Cyrus Chandler Colfax, Private InvestigatorAnd these are our two main characters, she's going to Adam Daventry's house to catalogue his collection to prepare it to include in their collection. He's been asked to investigate Daventry's death, who fell down a set of stairs. Unbeknownst to Eugenia he also suspects that a rare piece of glass, the Hades Cup, a cup that his former firm was supposed to deliver, however his former partner disappeared and his wife ended up dead. Close proximity of the two main characters causes them to find more regard for each other and they find that while they are quite opposite in many ways, they're quite similar in others. It's a romance, you know what to expect there but the thriller end of things had a lot of twists and turns and kept me guessing.A fun light read.

    Decent Krentz contemporary romance. I hadn't read it before. It doesn't have any paranorma; elements so that was a plus. It's biggest failing as a mystery is that the bad guys (two separate villains) always make a long speech explaining how and why they've done what they've done. Krentz writes decent dia;og and keeps the story moving but she really writes the same h/h characters over and over. Despite the paint-by-numbers effect, I do like reading her books because they move fast and are not overly angsty. Light reading.

    The Hades Cup is a beautiful piece of ancient Roman glass. And it has a long dark history - when it changes hands, someone dies.Director of the Leabrook Glass Museum, Eugenia Swift has a legitimate reason for traveling to Frog Cove Island. She's there to inventory a private glass collection. And a second, private reason that has everything to do with discovering why her friend, an accomplished woman on the water, apparently washed overboard and drowned.Security expert Cyrus Colfax's private reasons for traveling to the island have everything to do with the Hades Cup. But he has a legitimate reason for traveling to the island, as well - he just needs a cover story, and Eugenia will do nicely...A complicated plot, and a well-matched pair of main characters. It may stretch the realms of credibility, but that's what fiction's for, right?
