    EYE OF THE BEHOLDER by Jayne Ann Krentz

    Pocket Books (Simon & Schuster), 1999

    After being implicated in an art forgery scandel, Alexa Chambers returns to her childhood home in Avalon, Arizona. She's trying to rebuild her career, not looking for a man. The last thing she needs is a man like J. L. Trask--the man who believes Alexa's stepfather was somehow involved in his father's death.

    Twelve years before, Trask had left Avalon, but he'd vowed to return and discover the truth about his father--no matter who was hurt. Now he's back, opening the hotel his father vowed to build, but died before he had the chance. Trask's return, however, stirs up trouble. One of the men involved with Trask's father's failed business venture dies in an auto accident painfully similar to the one that killed Trask's father. The woman who loved Trask's father urges Trask to leave, then is discovered near death. Another potential witness vanishes. Trask and Alexa must work together to find the killer--before the killer claims Alexa as the next victim.

    Jayne Ann Krentz writes a fast-moving and sensuous romantic suspense. When the robed killer chases Alexa into the hills, your heart is likely to pound a little faster in sympathy with Alexa's. That both Trask and Alexa lost their fathers gives them a bond and understanding that makes their growing relationship more convincing. Krentz makes Avalon come alive, with the town and its environment almost another character in this compelling romance.
