The Riddle Key by @JaneDrager is a Love and Romance Book Festival Pick #giveaway #romanticsuspense


Author: Jane Drager

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Antiques expert Marina Cavanaugh is offered an exorbitant salary to appraise a dead man's estate. For a chance at easy money, she accepts the job but soon discovers hidden cameras in the darkest, gloomiest house she's ever seen.

Jonathan Blandish, who hired her, wants to know why his murdered brother left a series of cryptic messages implicating Marina. Even a layman can see the house contains only rummage-sale junk. But his brother's forty-million-dollar fortune is missing, and Marina is the key.

From the second they meet, Marina and Jonathan are at odds. He's too bossy and reminds her of her abusive father. She's too independent…and too beautiful for him to ignore. A second murder and Marina’s disappearance raises the danger level.

Convinced she was captured for the clues in the riddles, Jonathan races against time to find her before the killer realizes she knows nothing at all.


“What in the world is he talking about?” she complained. “He has to be talking about another Marina Cavanaugh, because I haven’t the slightest idea what this means.” She paced the room, one hand on her hip, the other in her hair.

Three clues, all pointing to Marina. He pursed his lips. “Which book was it in?”

She whirled to grab the book and read the binding. “The Art of Marquise Gelt.” She flipped the pages and gasped. “Jon, he’s talking about diamonds! The book’s dated 1907, but look, Roger’s note mentions the cuts.” Extending the book, she showed him the page. “That’s what this list means, diamond cuts!”

He flew around the desk, took the book, and flipped to a page illustrating the cuts.

“Well, I’ll be damned. The money’s in diamonds, and Marina Cavanaugh holds all.” He turned to her and peered.

In a gesture of surrender, she elevated her hands, palms up. “I do not know anything about your brother or diamonds.”

Jonathan reread the note. “I’ll show this to Farnsworth.” He looked upward. “The book came from the top shelves, right? Why hide a note so high? Why not in his safe?”

Author Biography:

Besides being a writer, Jane was once a caterer's assistant, office manager, basketball referee, all-star softball short-stop, and even a candlestick maker. But she spent more years than she could remember as a Respiratory Therapist and paramedic instructor. Throughout, writing was her passion and still is today. She gravitated toward romantic suspense because of her never-ending interest in relationships coupled with her avid love for mysteries. And since life is so depressing for so many, you can count on a happily-ever-after ending in all of her books.
