"The Old Man died last night," the e-mail read with mysterious brevity. That did it—forget the Garden Club, I was off to London! Little did I know I'd be going across the pond to resolve some unfinished business with my former photo agency. While there, I was led through a secret underground tube line and met up with an intimidating board of directors. My mission? Locate a long-lost amber ring-a special treasure that brings great prosperity to whatever country possesses it. With the help of an old flame, I traveled through England all the way to Greece to try to retrieve the powerful amber ring and restore opulence to the UK. Along the way, I encountered roaming paparazzi, determined thieves, and benevolent allies, all the while rekindling a long forgotten romance of years past.
An international adventure story with a healthy dose of romance, Royal Amber weaves throughout New York, England, and parts of Greece, with stirring descriptions of each. Author Jeanette M. Harris crafts a genuinely charming tale of intrigue with a down to earth wit and ease-characteristics that transfer to the likable (and nameless) protagonist. An evocative addition to the bookshelf of any travel fiction fan!
