The Secret Sisters

Ann Maxwell, Author HarperTorch $5.99 (480p) ISBN 978-0-06-104236-2
Fashion writer Christy McKenna hasn't heard from her sister Jo-Jo in 12 years, so she is concerned when Jo-Jo, presently the model for fashion designer Peter Hutton, calls and begs Christy to come to Hutton's posh Colorado ranch. At the ranch, Christy gets a scoop from Hutton on the source of his new designs--exquisite Indian artifacts recently unearthed. Jo-Jo, however, is nowhere to be seen. When Christy sneaks into Jo-Jo's room, she escapes detection because the security guards are busy beating up another prowler. Making a hasty retreat, she is nabbed by Aaron Cain, a freelance archeologist who has his own reasons for pussyfooting around the ranch. Aaron recruits Christy to accompany him on a search for artifacts at a site he hasn't visited lately: last time he was there, someone shot him and left him for dead. As Christy and Aaron become absorbed in an adventure that weaves together past and present, Maxwell ( The Diamond Tiger ) tosses in tidbits about archeology without impairing the story's almost nonstop action or putting a crimp in the romance. Maxwell's control of her material and unabashed willingness to entertain make this book a success. (May)
