The Quality of Blue

Paperback: 184 pages
Publisher: PublishAmerica (April 26, 2004)

Who would want to abduct River Tyler, a simple, unassuming jewelry designer? She’s sweet and
talented, as well as beautiful, and enchanted Larken Moore from the moment they stumbled across
one another in the busy Miami airport. Yet, weeks after taking over management of a new jewelry
store, she has disappeared and it is up to Larken and retired private eye, Johosh Singer, to discover
her whereabouts.                                 
The problem is, Larken’s not completely sure River hasn’t run off with dynamic businessman, Simon
Minorca.  Minorca is part owner of the jewelry business where River and Larken work and was the
one who insisted on bringing River to Florida. Though mesmerized by River’s charm and their one
night of unexpected passion, Larken has doubts about River’s character. After all, there was that
incident with the man in the nightclub and Larken knows River has been out to la casa Minorca once
for dinner. Then, as if confirming her fears, Johosh tells her that there are strange, wedding-type
preparations at Minorca’s Key West home.
Investigating further, however, Larken soon realizes things aren’t adding up the way they should.
So the chase is on and Larken comes face to face with the fact that she loves River with a fervency
that will take her into harm’s way yet hopefully, back into the arms of ultimate desire
