Book Description

Handsome home organizer Ted has a double dilemma.

As a devoted husband, he’s struggling to resist the charm and seductive flirtations of Janet, a divorced client. Circumstances keep bringing her back into his life, fueling his wife’s suspicions and inciting threats from Janet’s jealous ex-husband.

Ted must also deal with the ire of James Smith, a demanding client who is convinced his eccentric father died leaving something of great value hidden in his cluttered and mysterious Victorian mansion.

Together, Ted and Janet interpret clues that lead to two surprising discoveries—one that captures the imagination of the city, and one that determines their fate.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good romantic mystery October 31, 2011
Format:Paperback
I unexpectedly liked this book more than I thought I would. Author James V. O'Connor managed to pull me in with a story that deals with work ethics, extramarital affairs and personal integrity.

Ted McCormick, a professional home organizer, thinks he's a happily married man to his beautiful wife, Mary, of 12 years. However, he's caught off guard when he's attracted to one of his female clients, Janet, a single mom who was recently divorced. Janet is fun, attractive and imaginative. She's also intuitive and flirtatious, giving Ted plenty of opportunities to make the first move. Meanwhile, Ted is also hired by Jim Smith for a big project to purge the huge Victorian house of Smith's deceased and once eccentric father. Smith has reasons to believe he will find a treasure in his father's cluttered and spooky house. The mystery builds as Ted and his team deal with weird rooms and strange noises.

Right off the bat, I didn't care for Ted's wife Mary, and I knew something was wrong with their marriage even though they treated each other well. On the other hand, I instantly liked Ted and Janet, and of course, I was torn because I could see how Ted, who was faithful and loyal, was beginning to have an emotional affair with Janet even as he battled with his physical attraction to her.

There was a lot of sexual tension throughout the book. It was so palpable. I wondered why Ted didn't run home and make love to his wife. Throughout the two months that the story takes place, they only made love once! A healthy couple with no kids? I wondered why Ted didn't clue in that something was wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and easy read March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I downloaded Another Man's Treasure on my iPad Kindle app I didn't know what to expect. The only thing I knew about a "home organizer" was that I probably needed one. As I started into the book I enjoyed the descriptions of the characters, the business and the homes, but I had no idea where it was going to take me. As I got deeper and deeper into the story I got more and more involved and curious until I just had to sit down and read it through to the very end. I recommend this book highly for anyone who likes a good mystery and wants to go outside of the box just a little - away from the standard police and detective fare. Warning or advertisement: There are some pretty sexy scenes, so adults only, but tastefully done.

5.0 out of 5 stars cougarbooks November 3, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
who doesn't like a good mystery? throw in some sexually charged people, a treasure hunt, good, evil and a surprise ending. now that's a book I can honestly recommend.
I really enjoyed the author's insight into people and the ever present malajustment, greed. I hope to be reading another mystery by the author soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging story with great characters! May 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
This was an engaging read. The author caught my interest from the beginning with the character of Ted McCormick. We learn pretty early on that Ted has chosen his modest profession as an escape from some corporate falling out in his past. There is obvious tension in his marriage and his work puts him in some pretty interesting situations.

There are several very intriguing characters in this novel. Mr. Smith, the aging and overbearing man who hires Ted to clean out his father's home is certainly distinct and seemingly paranoid. Henry, a older gentleman with a quirky disposition is a refreshing character, someone you'd like to encounter in your own life.

The plot of this novel is full of drama, and I personally was waiting to see what would happen between Ted, Janet and Mary. I struggled throughout with what I wanted to happen, while I felt Mary was possibly too hard on her husband, I felt that Ted should have more respect for his wife, and Janet was too smart to be playing with fire.

I would have never guessed that Mr. O'Connor could write a resolution that satisfied me without being cheesy or too contrived. I really enjoyed this book. I definitely recommend it for anyone who enjoys a little mystery with plenty of twists and turns.

This was Mr. O'Connor's first novel and I hope there will be more to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Story May 9, 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is remarkable and delivers a new kind of page turner, one that creeps up on you, and as you can guess, I too could not put down. The author takes mystery to the next (more creative) level of sex, greed and other things that are best read directly...if you know what I mean. Another Man's Treasure goes beyond today's unimaginative lot, into a world of uniquely disguised intrigue that may be happening right next store--in your neighbors house. Read at you own imaginative risk..and pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great surprise June 1, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love to read, but there is so much to choose from I probably would never have picked up this book had it not been offered to me for free as a Kindle book for Amazon Prime customers. I have to tell you I completely enjoyed this book. I hope James O'Connor has more books in him. I would highly recommend this book to a wide variety of readers. It is well worth the modest price it is offered for. I don't even own a kindle yet and I like the book so much I read it on my Android phone.

More About the Author

When I was in college, I told my father I wanted to become an author. He said, "writing is a great back-up skill to have for a real job." He was right. I have been in corporate communications and agency public relations most of my life. I was in my fifties when I wrote my first book, CUSS CONTROL, a light-hearted but thought-provoking book on civility, effective communications, and presenting a positive image.

My wife and I have our own PR firm, and we won three awards for the best publicity program in the country for promoting CUSS CONTROL. I appeared on more than 100 TV shows, including Oprah, The View, CBS Sunday Morning, The Early Show, the Today Show, etc. I was also in hundreds of magazines and newspapers, and interviewed on hundreds of radio stations in 7 countries. We now specialize in book publicity. Visit www.oconnorpr.com.

"Another Man's Treasure," my mystery/romance novel, was published in September 2011. It's about fidelity and temptation, and generosity and greed. I wrote it with women readers in mind, but have discovered that men like it even more.
