But when her jewelry company is acquired by Tri-Tech, Rossi leaves Italy, returning to the scene of a crime that nearly destroyed her life.

Booklist Review

After years of self-imposed exile in Italy, Alyssa Rossi is on her way home after a conglomerate based in her hometown of New Orleans purchases her costume jewelry design business. She's wary of returning to the scene of the scandal that caused her to leave and the man she still has some feelings for. Jake Williams is the long-lost son of the owner of TriTech. Now in charge, he's suspicious of his new partner's purchase of a small jewelry business. The deal just doesn't feel right, and Jake decides to find out why. Alyssa and Jake meet, and his unusual sense of humor diffuses any distrust between them. Alyssa's return becomes the catalyst for a captivating tale of New Orleans society, Mardi Gras politics, kidnapping, and murder. Sawyer has created a wonderful cast, including an appealing starring couple, underworld lowlifes, and everyone in between, and a plot so rich in Byzantine twists and turns, readers won't be able to put this winner down. --Maria Hatton
