Scarlet Nights by Jude Deveraux ****

What happens when a multi-generational family of con artists sets their sights on Sara Shaw, a young women living in a small town in Virginia (Edilean)? These two cultures, both with centuries of history and tradition clash in the age old battle of city sophisticate versus small town innocent. As the story opens Sara is smitten with Greg Anders against the advice of the entire town. Florida detective Mike Newland comes to woo her away from Greg Anders and discover the mystery: what is the goal of this elaborate con?

Scarlet Nights by romance writer Jude Deveraux is an excellent mystery novel with a smattering of love and humor. Don't let the romance packaging (passionate pink cover etc.) fool you. This is a fine mystery with all the plot twist and turns you might expect and some you might not.
