Big change in our weather this weekend. 51F and the brave were out in the park this afternoon in shorts and summer tops. It’ll need to warm up a bit more before I get that adventurous.

Why all this cloak and dagger stuff? And since you know so much about me, why didn't your boss call me at my hotel and invite me to visit?”
“If, as we believe, you are being watched, we did not wish to advertise our presence.”
“Meaning your boss wants to keep this meeting a secret?” she said, hoping it had something to do with the diary.
“Must have made your day, getting to snatch me off the street in broad daylight.” She smiled to soften her words.
“Don't worry, you—”
“Will not be harmed. Right, so you said.”

Nine months ago, within hours of purchasing a valuable antiquarian diary for their grandfather, Paula Sinclair's brother, Eric, was killed by a car bomb and the diary disappeared.
Private investigator, Luc Dupré, along with the police, insist the diary was destroyed in the explosion. Paula isn't convinced. No trace of either the diary or Eric's briefcase was found in the rubble, and she takes it to mean the diary was stolen. The diary wasn't insured and with the bank still owed half a million dollars, Paula cannot sit idly by and watch her beloved grandfather forced into bankruptcy.
Following a mysterious phone call and a series of cryptic postcards, Paula returns to Paris to hear a rumor that the diary is being offered for sale by secret auction. She also finds out that the diary once belonged to Luc's family. When her relationship with Luc takes a sudden change from business to personal, she's positive he's using her and his job to get it back.
