Set in one of the author’s most beloved locations, the mist-shrouded coast of Maine, HERON’S COVE offers a gripping story of a priceless collection Russian jewelry that’s about to be stolen … again. For millions of readers, the popular New England author’s books mean edge-of-their-seats suspense, complex plotting, multi-faceted characters and romantic tension. HERON’S COVE, which hits stores August 2012, is no exception.
In the gripping novel, FBI agent and art crimes expert Emma Sharpe and her new love, FBI undercover agent Colin Donovan, fight to uncover the connection between an illegal arms operation and a collection of Russian Art Nouveau jewelry. When Russian billionaire Dmitri Rusakov docks his yacht in Heron’s Cove, he claims he is there to recover a priceless collection of jewelry that was stole four years earlier. Colin suspects he’s there for another reason altogether – and he wonders how much Emma knows about the Russian’s mission. To get to the bottom of the mystery, Emma and Colin must reveal their secrets and trust each other’s expertise to outwit their ruthless enemies.
Carla’s careful research and attention to detail always come into play when she creates the mysterious plots for her characters. “Art has been an ever-present influence in my life,” Carla says. “My mom was very visual, an inspired quilter. One of my uncles, who was captured by the Nazis during World War II, was an avid painter, and my roommates in college were artists. I’m fascinated by high-stakes international art theft and the motivations behind it.”
