Product Description Product Description
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a novel about a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed and danger that brings them together—and could tear them apart...
 
When professional house-sitter Lila Emerson witnesses a murder/suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as she knows it takes a dramatic turn. Suddenly, the woman with no permanent ties finds herself almost wishing for one...
 
Artist Ashton Archer knows his brother isn’t capable of violence—against himself or others. He recruits Lila, the only eyewitness, to help him uncover what happened. Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash try to find out who murdered his brother and why. From the penthouses of Manhattan to grand Italian villas, their investigation draws them into a rarefied circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away and stolen; where what you possess is who you are; and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession...

Customer Reviews

Another Nora Roberts win and a great book.I have been very disappointed in Nora Roberts' writing for the past few years, from being an avid fan for decades. This book brings back her trademark style that got me hooked after reading my first Nora Roberts book in the late 1990s. It has a great plot and interesting details although the formula is the same, she is less 'formulary' in this book and a little more creative. It was suspenseful and romantic, the characters were well developed and believable, and I enjoyed the book from start to finish.5Sadly, No Where Near The Caliber of The Witness As at least one other person here has mentioned, I was sorely disappointed in this book. The first chapter of The Collector was at the end of The Witness . As The Witness is, in my opinion, Nora Roberts greatest book, I expected another fantastic plot . . . and more of the brilliant dialogue that she is a genius at writing. Instead, the plot was mediocre, the action plodded along and the dialogue - and the characters - were boring. Talented, but boring. I ve read The Witness three times and have recommended it to countless friends who loved it, too. I loved both her Irish trilogies, but slogged through this book just telling myself, This is a Nora Roberts book, it has to get better! Wrong!3Five Star SuspenseOne of Nora's best in my opinion! Like some other reviewers have said, I was not a fan of her most recent Blood Magick Irish Trilogy, and decided to take a break from reading any of her books for a while. My mom gave The Collector and The Liar incredibly high praise so I decided to give it a try. I was NOT disappointed! This was one of her best in my opinion. Great strong characters, lead and secondary characters. I also liked that the major villain in the story was also a woman (there is more than one threat in this story but it doesn't get to complicated). We don't usually see that, so it was a nice change. I would recommend this novel to anyone who was a fan of romantic suspense stories. I will definitely be reading it again!5Good book.Good book. Not her greatest but good. Definitely a frothy read and not something for someone looking for a thriller. Lila was a likable character. I thought Ash was a bit like a steam roller. The villains were slightly cartoonish and moustache twirling. Her previous antiques related mystery was written much better. If you wanted an antiques themed book I would probably recommend Hidden Riches over this one. Still will probably read again but I would honestly give this one a C+4Swing and a miss!To me this book felt like Nora Roberts "phoned it in". There was very little character development. The story was slow and took a great deal of effort to get through. There were so many opportunities for her to broaden the story a bit, but let those opportunities slip through. There was never a time that my heart beat faster. There was no suspense. No thrill. Never felt the need to "put it in the freezer".I was very disappointed in the book. Nora Roberts has always been one of my favorites for years, but this book could have been a novella for all the "fluff" she had to put it to reach 400 pages.2An Engaging and Witty StoryI wish I was a character in some of Nora Roberts' books -- and this is definitely one of them. The main character, Lila, is a house-sitter with a fairly successful writing career in YA fiction. Her house sitting is the perfect way for her to watch (via binoculars) and imagine the neighbors lives. But, uh-oh, she witnesses a murder and soon becomes a target of the same killer because she came forward as a witness. Meanwhile, she meets the brother of the victim -- who is handsome, rich, famous, and an artist who wants to paint her and of course, sleep with her. And if I was Lila, that would be A-OK with me! It is OK with her too, she goes on a trip to Florence (via private plane), successfully gets away from a trained assassin and gets to outsmart an eccentric billionaire (The Collector in the book title) along with her pretty perfect guy. Oh, and did I mention she successfully reunites her best friend with her first true love? Yup, all that happens to the lovely Lila in this engaging and witty story. Is there any wonder I want to be her? Because I am pretty sure she will become a famous writer and the painting of her will become museum masterpieces --pass the cocoa puffs!4HUGE disappointmentI cannot believe that the same Nora Roberts that wrote the Witness wrote this awful book. I'm about half way through and I have been laughing at the stupid dialog between the boring, unbelievable main characters. At this point I truly don't care "who done it" and perhaps I will finish it if my skimming skills stay strong and I'm really bored. Very disappointed and surprised at all the 5 star reviews.1I wasn t thrilled with the selection having heard all the good ones alreadyI went searching for an audio book at my local library because I travel a bit for my work. I wasn t thrilled with the selection having heard all the good ones already. Nora Roberts The Collector was available. I m a David Baldacci/ Vince Flynn fan and wasn t really interested in romance suspense. However, there was nothing else available and I had a long drive the next day so I checked it out of the library.I wasn t sure about the book when it first started but I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, I found myself driving around just to listen to the story. At that time I realized I had to purchase the book so I could read it while not in the car.I m happy I didn t read some of the negative comments beforehand because I might not have listened/read this book. I thought it was great. It held my interest and I couldn t put it down or shut it off.I m not a Nora Roberts fan so I don t know about some of the comments made comparing her other books. All I know is that everyone is different and has their opinions. In fact, I ve never reviewed a book before but I felt compelled to when I read some negative comments. Myself? I look for stories that interest me and take me away from my busy life for awhile. And this book fit the bill.This was one of those books I hated to have come to an end. In fact, I didn t listen/read it for a couple of days because I didn t want it to end.This is a keeper for me. This book made me realize that I should expand my list of authors.5Ho hummmm!I read everything Nora Roberts writes, and will likely continue to do so until I keel over. So I basically compare Nora Roberts books to other Nora Roberts books. This is not going to be one of my favorites. It has a really nasty villain, the Hot Asian Girl (HAG) Jai, and another character who is supposed to be even worse( but I found myself feeling a bit sorry for him.) Unfortunately I found the HAG much more interesting than the heroine, Lila. I could never find any consistency in Lila's character. She is a house sitter and does really well living in other peoples homes and caring for their pets. I have known a few house sitters and they never had a website, traveled to Rome or lived in penthouses, but maybe New York is different from other places. Lila also writes YA novels with werewolves (a bow to Kelley Armstrong?) All this should make her fun and fascinating but I found her whiny and unformed. A childhood as an army brat seems to have scarred her or something.The hero, Ash Archer, is great. He is a highly acclaimed artist who is also rich, comes from a background that should be dysfunctional but isn't, and is definitely an interesting and fun person to have around. One of Ms Roberts' best male heroes. My only quibble is this macho dude paints exclusively fairies, witches, mermaids, gypsy girls dancing by firelight, haunted castles, etc. There was no mention of unicorns but I suspect they are in there somewhere. I really cannot see the New York galleries eating up this kind of art, no matter how well he does it, and yet he is supposed to sell in the high six figures and regularly have his paintings hanging in the finest homes all over the world. From his subject matter I would suspect he is more likely to be the kind of male friend who races into my house to borrow my mascara than someone who burns up the sheets and is a dominant son, brother and lover. My guess is this is the kind of art Nora Roberts thinks her readers would love, but I wish she would check out what is actually selling in the galleries these days. Still I liked Ash a lot and could overlook his Aubrey Beardsley inclination but I could not see why he was so smitten with Lila. She spends a lot of time peering through binoculars into other peoples' windows which seems invasive and creepy but she is compassionate and carries around WD-40 and duct tape.The book does have a couple of appealing animals, a tea cup poodle and a cat, which made me start thinking about getting another dog. Oh well, on to the next Nora Roberts. I know a great many readers will love this book. I liked it but have liked others more.3Not worth your time or money.If I had picked up this book without knowing who the author was I would never had guessed Nora Roberts. I haven't read anything by her in quite awhile and I think I just might be done if this is what she is putting out now. This book was about 200 pages too long. I was rooting for Jai to find and kill Lila by about page 350. I no longer cared about Faberge eggs by about halfway through the book and was rooting for the bad guys by the end. Bad writing, poor editing and a poor storyline have put me off of Nora's books for good now. If I ever do decide to read her again I will digitally download from my library. I'm not spending my money on this drivel again. I'm an avid reader and it took me two weeks to get through this one book. If this book had been any good, I would have finished it in three days despite the Stanley Cup Finals being on.1
