Glass as art is Eugenia Swift's passion. Her job is the director and curator of a small prestigious art museum in Seattle. There she can build up their collection of glass artwork. A man who had an impressive personal collection recently died in an accident and willed his collection to the museum. She is going to the man's home on an island to go through the artwork he had gathered over his lifetime. But her hidden agenda is different. A friend of hers disappeared the day after the collector died, and Eugenia knows that something is wrong.
Cyrus Colfax runs a successful security agency. He is joining Eugenia to keep her safe, much to her dismay. The accident that had killed Adam Daventry may not have been an accident, but foul play. He is hired to be a bodyguard just in case. But he also has a hidden agenda. He believes that Daventry owned a unique piece of ancient glass art that has been a rumor for hundreds of years. He knew the piece existed on the black market because he had seen it once in his earlier career, and had almost died when it had been stolen.
Now, alone in Daventry's home, they each pursure their own agenda as well as cataloging the artwork. Daventry's home is a monument to art, as is the art colony he founded on the island. There Eugenia and Cyrus try to discover the answers to their puzzles. There they also discover an attraction to each other that doesn't fit either one of them well.
In Sharp Edges, Krentz again delivers an enjoyable romance novel with a sustaining mystery. It moves quickly, featuring two likeable, if utterly different, characters. It also uses the world of black market artwork to help frame the story. Sharp Edges is not overly deep, rather it is a few hours of relaxation and escape.
Notice: Strong sexual content
