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! Download and start listening now!

    " Dam you Euginina! Over all, not a bad listen but I think the read would have been painful! "

    " This book did keep me guessing til the very end but it's not really my cup of tea so I'd have to say it was an ok read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 4/10/2013

    " pretty good, but i think it could have been better in some ways. but in other ways, i wouldn't have change it. it's a good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 11/24/2012

    " A low 2 stars. Too much talk explaining life, the universe and everything. I prefer books where the explanations emerge from the story itself, not from characters emoting. I did thoroughly enjoy the art glass and Seattle threads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 BonSue Brandvik | 10/5/2012

    " Good story; at first I thought it was somewhat predictable, but then it had a couple good twists. "

    " I'm pretty sure at some point in the past, I had picked up this book, and there was a section of pretty bad puns. While I enjoy puns, it seems that they're a bit out of place in a romance story. Great plot tho. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 6/13/2012

    " Simplistically written mystery/love story about a stolen piece of famous glass art and it's recovery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 5/1/2012

    " Pretty standard Jayne Krentz--her books do sort of all blur together after a while. I liked the details about glass art, but found the characters had somewhat less pop than usual. She can do better things with these particular character types. "
