In Part One #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts introduces us to Laine Tavish, known to the folks in Angel's Gap, Maryland as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara...or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law. But Laine's past has just caught up with her. Her long-lost uncle has visited her shop, leaving a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, Laine's home is ransacked. Now it's up to her, and an enigmatic stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why. The answer lies in a hidden fortune that will change Laine's life.

In Part Two, J.D. Robb takes us to New York City in 2059, and puts Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas on the case. The treasure that Laine and Max sought has never been fully recovered. And now someone else is pursuing the missing gems...someone who's willing to kill for them. Sharp-witted and sexy, Eve is used to traveling in the shadowy corners outside the law, in a future where crime meets cutting edge technology. She will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all - and stop the danger and death that has surrounded them for decades.

I picked this book up because JD Robb’s name is on it

What I liked the Most? love Love LOVE this story

What I liked the Least? The JD Robb part was rocking – there was NOTHING I didn’t like

Review: I only reviewed the 2nd half of the book

Eve and her team are investigating a murder that occurs in the apartment of Samantha Gannon, granddaughter of the romantic couple in Part One who were involved in the partial closure of a world famous diamond heist. Samantha Gannon has written a book about the diamond heist to which her family was so closely involved and it looks like someone is after her in order to find a pouch of diamonds that was never recovered.

The murderer was fairly easy to identify, but it was exciting nonetheless to follow the sequence of events that led Eve and her team to solve the case and take down the murderer. I loved the Peabody search for her detective style.

Recommended to: Anyone
