"Suspense and romance begin when Dora buys art at an auction. Dora's new tenant, Jed, comes to her defense during a break-in and gets more than he bargains for. Sandra Burr easily highlights each character with distinctive voices. Lighthearted banter between Dora and Jed, at times turning to sarcasm, is well read. Burr's voices for Dora's parents, actors who have a flair for the dramatic, are never strained or overdone. Descriptive writing and natural, easy-going presentations bring images of characters quickly and easily to mind. C.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
