Four mysterious words prompt antiques dealer Precious Rafferty to embark on a quest across Europe to uncover their meaning. Preshy, at age thirty-eight, loves her American-in-Paris life, but thinks that she’ll never be swept off her feet—until she meets Bennett James. As their whirlwind courtship progresses, though, she realizes that there is much about his business life in Shanghai she doesn’t know. Then she receives an urgent message from Lily Song, a cousin she’s never met. Lily lives in Shanghai and knows the antiques underworld there—and she has a secret important enough to draw her to Venice to meet Preshy for the first time, face-to-face. In Venice, Preshy will have to weave through a maze of betrayers to discover who she can trust with her heart—and with her life. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 2/10/2014

    " I was a little disappointed in this Adler book. I didn't care for any of the main characters. Precious (Preshy) is completely naive and wishy washy (to match her name). Lily is dishonest and distant. Both male characters are unlikeable. I continued with the story to see it through. So, I gave it two stars because at least it held my attention for part of the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine Baetz | 1/9/2014

    " This book was a pretty quick read. It was pretty predictable and the characters came across as a bit too naive even with the hard earned worldly life lessons they were described to have. I found it hard to relate to the characters. It was also frustrating when the main character switched half way through the book. A lot of movement through the book will keep you on your toes but ultimately a let down of anticipation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, but frequently it felt a littel forced to me, as if there was a fact that the author thought we needed to know, so she tossed it in. A good summer, poolside read, but probably not something I'll come back kto in the future. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debra | 1/1/2014

    " Seriously, a main character named Preshy...oculd not get past the name... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/28/2013

    " I listened to this as an audiobook and it was an interesting story going from China, to Paris to Venice and then the States. Lots of interesting characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 12/18/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It held my interest and had many twists and turns in it-very entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/1/2013

    " I don't usually like love stories but this was thrilling. So romantic and the author did a superb job at making you feel like were there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 11/23/2013

    " I usually like mystery books, but on this one the "heroine" is so stupid I kept cheering for the bad guy to kill her. It also has a dumb ending and a few loose ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 11/2/2013

    " ok read about two cousins who have never met - one lives in paris and the other in shanghai. they are both antique dealers. they become connected by a con man hoping to steal a family treasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 10/25/2013

    " I always enjoy Elizabeth Adler's books, but I have to say this is the one it took me the longest to get in to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Dolbeare | 9/30/2013

    " This book was alright. I really did not expect much, so I was not really disappointed that the story was very scattered and the characters were thinly written. I bought the book to read on vacation, and it served its purpose. It was light and ended well. A simple read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merty | 9/23/2013

    " This was a pleasant read but not as descriptive with the settings as with her other books. On to Provence, with the next one. I think I have 3 more to read after that, St. Tropez, Capri and one more place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 9/15/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyn | 8/10/2013

    " a pretty suspenseful novel, but too many coincidences to my liking. the fact that Lily, Preshy, Mary Lou are all connected with the 'villain' Bennett Yuan/ Bennett James and not aware of it, makes the book too unrealistic for my taste. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 6/25/2013

    " The ending was so disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 5/18/2013

    " This was the first time reading one of Elizabeth's books and I found it alright to read. It was one I had a hard time putting down. I would love to read another one of her books and see if I would enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Walker | 12/4/2011

    " Love Elizabeth Adler but why anyone would name their heroine, Preshy, short for Precious, is beyond me. Almost couldn't read this book just because the name is stupid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 7/16/2011

    " This was interesting enough to keep me going. I was a little put off by the introduction of most of the unsavory and unliikeable characters in the beginning of the book. I really want to love someone in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel | 12/12/2010

    " I was a little taken back by the bright pink cover and girly description, but overall I loved the book. I was surprised when people started getting murdered every five seconds. Oh the wonderful deceitful plans of mankind. It was the perfect airport read. "
