Smart, talented interior designer Erin Gilbert is becoming great friends with her free-spending client, Laura Smith, whose stunning mansion is brimming with rare, expensive antiques�until she realizes the fabulous treasures she so carefully acquired for Laura have been completely replaced with fakes! When Laura's explanations sound as phony as the furniture, Erin is compelled to dig deeper into Laura�s glamorous life�the real antiques have got to be somewhere�until her investigation is interrupted by a murder!
It seems Erin has revealed the same cunning con artist who all but ruined her handsome-but-bitter archrival, Steve Sullivan. Erin wants answers but Sullivan dreams of revenge; so when detectives are called in, their perfect suspect is�the charming (almost, maybe, not quite, perhaps boyfriend) Steve Sullivan himself!

Now Erin must chase down the real killer before the cops drag Sullivan away in cuffs�that would put a real damper on their budding romance!

I read the first book in the series as well as this one. I love interior design and murder so I thought this would be the perfect series for me. Unfortunately, both books were very boring. They both also had horrible gramatical errors throughout. The fighting between the characters was childish and I got tired of it very quickly. I think bringing her landlady in as a more prominate character would be interesting. I wouldn't recommend this.

I thought this book was just so-so - a light read, which plot I will only vaguely remember about 10 minutes from now. Anyone with half a brain could figure out where this story was going and the relationship between 'Gilbert' and 'Sullivan' was so cliched.

Interior designer Erin Gilbert helps her clients Laura Smith and David Holland redecorate their mini-mansion with beautiful and costly antiques, and becomes friends with the woman. After an alteration with a man wearing a wig and carrying a gun, Laura flips him using a judo technique. When Erin goes to her home to check on her, she discovers that the valuable antiquities were replaced with cheap reproductions.................... Laura tells the interior decoration that the antiquities are in storage where they will be safe and appreciate in value over the years. When Erin informs David, he insists he knows nothing about the switch because he was out of town but he can¿t see properly because he lost his glasses. Erin learns that Laura is the person who scammed interior decorator Steve Sullivan out of $300,000 dollars. Steve and Erin watch Laura¿s house. When Dave drives out they follow him to a storage facility where they find Laura¿s murdered body. Erin starts her own investigation discovering that everyone who knew Laura had a reason to kill her.................... It is hard to believe that every person she was involved in ended up helping her and then wanting to see her dead but Laura was one such person, the perfect villainess and victim. There are so many people she hurt who had a motive to kill her that readers will find themselves trying to figure out who the killer really is. The heroine pursues her investigation even though there have been attempts made on her life but she is determined to identify the perpetrator so she can regain her own piece of mind. This exciting amateur sleuth tale is the perfect beach book.................. Harriet Klausner
