Publisher's summary

RITA Award Winner, Best Romantic Suspense, 1995

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts unveils the intriguing world of antiques dealing, where an independent woman discovers the price of breathless desire - and the schemes of an obsessed killer...

Dora Conroy has a passion for antiques - and any other rarities she can acquire for her quaint Philadelphia shop. A seasoned dealer, she knows all the tricks of the trade. But she is unprepared for the deadly consequences when she purchases a few curiosities at an auction - and unknowingly brings home a priceless cache that makes her the target of an international criminal. Entwined in a reckless chase, Dora turns to her new neighbor, Jed Skimmerhorn, a cop who’s turned in his badge - and whose desire for lovely Dora puts him back in the line of fire. Fighting their attraction while falling in love, they find that hidden riches can have a most ordinary façade. And that possession can be a lethal obsession...

Loved it!!

I read a lot of Nora Roberts and I find them all good. However, once in a while, one of her books really gets to me. This is one of those. I loved the characters, the storyline and the narrator. Ahhhhh.... Next Nora Roberts book please!!

YES YES YES

You know they are going to end up together - why else write about it however...

Very interesting and independant characters, very interesting and insightful read.

Sandra Burr is also really great.

Again... couldn't put this book down - finished it in 2 days!

Thank you for keeping my weekends alive - especially the boring ones.

Hidden Riches

Any additional comments?

Liked the book and story but not the RECORDING as there is a lot of back ground noise starting about 3/4 the way through the first part of this book. Very distracting and when i asked if there was a better quality recording of the book i got a email back from Audible full of questions to be answered. I can't be bothered going through it all so am disappointed in the support from Audible and Audio quality of the first part of this book. I have never had an Audio problem before, just wanted a better quality recording or perhaps my credit back. :(

Typical Roberts - but enjoyed it

This is a typical Nora Roberts book .. strong woman meets strong man .. they try to avoid their chemistry but can't, one of them has someone trying to do them in .. happy ending for all.

I absolutely enjoyed it ??? it made my commuting in and out of Boston much more pleasant it one could say commuting is a pleasant. I always enjoy Sandra Brown???s narriation.

Beyond dreadful

What disappointed you about Hidden Riches?

Generally, I find Nora Roberts a good storyteller and I have enjoyed some of her books a great deal. This was not one of them. I am guessing this was one of her earliest books, referring as it does (in the story) to old technology like Walkmans. The writing is awkward, saccharine and immature. But the worst part of all was the narrator, whose voice sounded like something from a 1950's movie. Every time the narrator said one of the main character's names -- "Skimmerhorn" -- in that breathless little voice I wanted to smack her, so awful and contrived did it come across. And seriously: who would name a character Skimmerhorn anyway?

What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

Everything. Her voice(s) and "over performance", her pacing. Sandra Burr was absolutely awful and I will go out of my way to avoid any book narrated by her in the future.

Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of Nora Roberts current books, I would strongly encourage you to avoid this older book with it's stereotyped, flat characters, silly dialogue and boring-as-hell storyline. It is terribly dated and a real waste of a credit. I could not finish it.

Not great

I typically enjoy Nora Roberts but this book is set in modern times while the narrator’s voice belongs in an old fashioned book. Pride and Prejudice would be a great book for her voice just not anything recent. I couldn’t even finish listening, had to turn it off.
