Deadly secrets are buried on Amber Beach ...

Donovan International is a power to be reckoned with in the dazzling and cutthroat worldwide gem trade -- and is therefore a target for the murderous greed of unscrupulous competitors. Though a shrewd businesswoman, Honor Donovan has been effectively shut out of the dangerous family enterprise by the Donovan males -- until her favorite brother, Kyle, mysteriously vanishes along with a fortune in stolen amber.

Now, linking up with "fishing guide" Jake Mallory -- whose previous association with the Donovans has bred mistrust and suspicion -- Honor sets out for the Pacific Northwest in search of answers. But old wars and new politics have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe into a deadly game. And suddenly, elusive trust can be the only salvation -- and death the penalty for deceit -- if Honor and Jake hope to survive the perilous intrigues surrounding a breathtaking lost Czarist treasure known as the Amber Room ...

    " I reread this book this summer. This is about Honor Donovan and Jake. Brother Kyle Donovan goes missing and Honor hires Jake to help find him and a panel of Russian amber. Story is well written and action, sex is hot. "

    " Honor Donovan, jewelry designer, travels to the Pacific Northwest to search for a missing brother along with a fortune in missing amber. Sweet little mystery, with good chemistry between the characters. Amber Beach, good for the beach or any lazy day. "

    " Very good Author!! She tends to tie in characters from other books and they all keep you moving!! This was the first of the Donovan Series. The first one I read was Pearl Cove then went back to read the other 4 or 5 she tied them to! Excellent must read books!! "

    " I absolutely adored this book. The first two are my favorites, but after that, they seem to go down hill. My least fave being Midnight in Ruby Bayou. Though I'm still hoping (crosses fingers) that she'll change her mind and write Justin & Lawe's stories. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I just wish that the author had not spent so much time talking about the mechanics of sailing and fishing. I could have done without that. Instead it would be have been nice to have a bit more explanation about the folks behind the theft. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Graham | 8/23/2011

    " Slow start and pacing dragged during info dump dialogue scenes, but since it was Book One in a series, I read it through to the end. I'll give Book Two a shot, but if it's slow too, I won't be finishing it. "
