51qElOtgxQL._AC_US218_Pub: Piatkus

Lila Emerson is fascinated by other people’s lives. As a house-sitter, she loves looking after the glamorous homes she could never afford herself. And as a writer, she enjoys dreaming up stories for the people she sees from her window. But then one day she witnesses something only too real – the shocking murder of a young woman living across the street in New York. Now Lila is in mortal danger from an audacious, single-minded assassin who kills for profit and for pleasure.

With the police following a false lead, Lila’s only hope is to team up with Ashton Archer, an artist with his own complicated reasons for getting involved. Lila wants to trust the passionate, quick-witted Ash – but is she letting her feelings blind her to his motives? Either way, she will never watch from the sidelines again…

I bought this book way back because I liked the cover and it’s been sitting on my shelf for a long time.

I am however glad I picked it up as it was a very good read.

Lila has a fab job as a house sitter, and she has stayed all over the place and in some fabulous houses.  While sitting on the balcony at her current stay she witnesses a woman falling from her balcony after an argument with her ‘boyfriend’.

Like Lila, I love a good people watch, but even she couldn’t imagine how the drama would change her life.

This is a wonderful read, and one i enjoyed. Nora Roberts is a good write and the historical and descriptive aspect of this novel  held my interest.

Although it isn’t a great literary piece, it is very enjoyable and appealing.
