9780060829865: Blue Smoke and Murder (St. Kilda Consulting)

Jill Breck was just doing her job as a river guide when she saved the life of the son of two of St. Kilda Consulting’s premier operators. But when a string of ominous events -- including a mysterious fire that kills her great-aunt and a furor in the Western art world raised by a dozen Breck family paintings -- culminates in a threat to her life, Jill finally calls in a favor.

Zach Balfour works part-time as a consultant for St. Kilda. Though he’s got the skills to be a highly effective bodyguard, being a bullet catcher isn't his preferred way to spend time. But Jill is in deeper waters than she’s ever known, and she’ll need his protection; as she soon discovers, the perils of running wild rivers are tame compared with the hidden dangers in the high-stakes game of art collecting. Together, Zach and Jill must race against time to unmask a ruthless killer hidden in the blue smoke of money, threats, lies, and death. . . .

About the Author:

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell has more than eighty titles published to date with over twenty-four million copies of her books in print. She lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with her husband, with whom she writes novels under a pseudonym. Her favorite activity is exploring the Western United States to find the landscapes that speak to her soul and inspire her writing.

From AudioFile:

A combination of action, intrigue, and sexual tension results in superb romantic suspense. Narrator Carol Monda delivers a confident performance as the independent Jill Breck, a river guide who is pulled into a dangerous scheme when she inherits a collection of unsigned canvases. As she tries to uncover the truth about the origin of the paintings, her life is threatened, and she must seek help from a private consulting firm. Monda's husky rendering of operative Zach Balfour adds to his masculine strength while keeping his tone caring and protective. Overall, Monda's performance keeps up with the fast pace of the action, yet she deftly slows things down for the steamy scenes when Jill and Zach act upon their mutual attraction.

Jill Breck was just doing her job as a river guide when she saved the life of Lane Faroe, son of two of St. Kilda s consulting premier operators.

His expertise is gathering and analyzing information from unlikely and often dangerous sources; in a pinch, he ll act as a bodyguard, though being bullet catcher isn t his preferred way to spend time. While trying to keep Jill alive, Zach learns again what he already knew: collectors can be a strange, savagely competitive bunch. Some of them will do anything to stay at the top of their chosen fieldincluding kill.While pursuing the truth of the paintings she has always loved, Jill discovers that the perils of running wild rivers fade next to the hidden dangers in the high-stakes game of art collecting.From the ordinary dust of the Breck homestead cabin to the extraordinary multi-million dollar Western art circuit, Zach and Jill race to stay alive despite the claims and counter-claims, the threats and lies, and the death that waits inside the blue smoke of salesmanship and the brutal truth of murder.
