Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life
in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the
proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift
shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap
thinks. 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 . . .
Laine's past has just caught up with her, thoughin a
very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up
in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying
in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home
is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger
named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why.
The answer lies in a hidden fortune-a fortune that will
change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future
generations. And danger and death will surround that
fortune for years to come. Until New York City detective
Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets on the case.
