Kindle in Canada - Krentz Eye of the Beholder 99cent Pre-Order

http://www.amazon.com/Eye-of-the-Beh...1881258&sr=1-1

Releases September 7, 2010
Eye of the Beholder

From Publishers Weekly
When hotel magnate J.L. Trask returns to Avalon, Ariz., to open his magnificent new resort, art expert Alexa Chambers and the other locals in this New Age town suspect he's come, after 12 years, to avenge his father's death. Trask, convinced that his father was murdered, must deal with Avalon's charismatic guru, Webster Bell, and his many eager disciples in bestselling author Krentz's (Flash) latest romantic thriller. Alexa, who considers herself Trask's nemesis his accusations against her stepfather have echoed in her mind since she was 16, when she forced the furious Trask to leave her home becomes his unlikely ally in the search for the truth behind his father's death. The prolific Krentz, who also churns out bestsellers as Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle, once again demonstrates her knack for page-turning plots that masterfully inveigle and misdirect readers up to a surprising denouement. Krentz here captures the intriguing perils of the art collecting world: Alexa's career as an expert on 20th-century art was nearly ruined after a forgery scandal tarnished her reputation. The Dimensions Institute, the metaphysical retreat that dominates Avalon, is another richly observed milieu. Psychics, aura readers and meditation guides hold sway, and the author treads a thin line between poking fun at so-called New Age enlightenment and lauding the benefits of introspection and intellectual pursuits. In the end, this is a well-paced thriller fraught with tension both sexual and suspenseful that will please Krentz fans.

Xanthe - the low price is for Canadians only; those in the US see the US price.

One author ... three regular pen names ... http://www.krentz-quick.com/ ... she's a busy gal! (In 1986 she published 13 titles ... !)

This particular title, from 1999, alas, didn't exactly attract rave reviews from the Amazon customer postings. Someone complained about formula but, hey, if you like the formula all is good, right?

yeah - she uses 3 names keyed to what period she's writing.

Amanda Quick writes Historical Romances
Jayne Krentz writes Contemporary
and
Jayne Castle does Futuristic

I don't think I've ever read this particular novel but I do enjoy her Arcane Series.
