Booklist Review

For Hannah Grey, the chance to take care of Carrick Manly's elderly mother, Melinda, couldn't have come at a better time. Once Hannah arrives at Balfour House, though, she almost loses the job when she refuses to report back to Carrick on everything Melinda says. Thwarted by Hannah, Carrick hires Gabriel Prescott to wire Balfour House in order to find out if his mother really knows the location of the millions of dollars stolen by his father. But soon after starting his new assignment, Gabriel begins to wonder exactly who Hannah is: an unscrupulous nurse trying to con her new patient, or a dedicated woman unwittingly caught up in a dangerous search for a missing fortune. RITA Award-winner Dodd deftly brings both her Fortune Hunters and her Lost Texas Hearts series to a superbly satisfying conclusion in a deliciously suspenseful and atmospheric romance.--Charles, John Copyright 2009 Booklist


Library Journal Review

Verdict: Award-winning romance novelist Dodd offers another fast paced and thoroughly enjoyable page-turner. Fans will relish this latest offering, which concludes "The Fortune Hunters"series while blending it with her "Lost Texas Hearts" saga. Recommended for all public libraries. Background: Desperate for work after being falsely accused of professional misconduct, home-care nurse Hannah Grey accepts a position caring for an elderly agoraphobe, the widow of a former magnate who absconded with his company's capital and left his family disgraced and destitute. Their son Carrick will do anything to hunt down the family fortune, and he hires private eye Gabriel Prescott to put his mother's house under surveillance. Gabriel, who has his own family secrets to uncover, finds himself staking out Hannah more closely than the house. This clever amalgam of two popular series provides a thrilling melange of snappy dialog, likable characters, and steamy sensuality.-Jeanne Bogino, New Lebanon Lib., NY (c) Copyright 2010.
