Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Jayne Anne Krentz is an impresario for creating characters that are both quirky and original. Eugenia Swift is the Director of a world renowned glass museum, Cyrus Chandler Colfax is a private detective who is as rough hewn as Eugenia is slick. When the two get together, readers know that sparks will fly and glass will shatter--especially since the two are posing as a couple to investigate the mysterious death of a famous glass collector. Since this is a romantic suspense, passion flames and ignites molten love despite the ulterior motives of the two leading characters. One of the very best things about reading a Jayne Ann Krentz romance is that her heroines are always intelligent! --Kate Ryan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

Krentz sends museum director Eugenia Swift to catalog an important glass collection whose dead owner was the lover of one of Swift's friends, now vanished. No wonder she takes along a private investigator.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Deep Waters and Absolutely, Positively converted me into a Jayne Ann Krentz fan and I went on to read her earlier work after those two books, including her Regency romances under the pseudonym Amanda Quick. Her trademarks are intelligent, independent heroines and brooding heroes with dark histories. They usually have names that you don't normally tag to romantic heroes and heroines, like Gideon, Molly and Harry.
In this story, it's Cyrus, a private detective, and Eugenia, a Museum Director. The death of a glass collector on Frog Cove Island bring the two together on official missions that hide their real motives: Eugenia to investigate the death of her artist friend (who was also one of the collector's many girlfriends) and Cyrus to hunt down an ancient artifact that was stolen under his security watch three years ago. Their initial suspicion of each other plays against strong physical attraction, but while there is heat and sexual tension, there's no sense of inevitability that these two characters deserve each other and should fall headlong into each other's arms. The main characters are disappointingly flat and the love scenes seem contrived. Krentz tries too hard to make the characters outwardly different that they end up as stereotypes - the sleek, sophisticated Museum Director and the strong, silent detective with the too-colorful shirts. The novel's redeeming features are the snappy dialogue and the quirky secondary characters.
If you want to start on a Krentz romance, I'd strongly recommend Absolutely, Positively, Grand Passion or Deep Waters. While Sharp Edges is still a good read, it won't warm you up on cold nights.

In this story by Jayne Ann Krentz I think that the Audio version (3 hr abridged) is a bit to abridged. I felt like I was missing part of the story at times! but, the overall story did still ragte a 4.
Eugenia Swift is caught up in a mystery when she goes to catalogue a glass collection for the museum that she works for. Along comes Adam - posing as her assistant but he is really investigating the loss of a valuable glass piece that disappeared from his protection years ago while he was transporting it. Then again Eugenia is not only cataloguing the glass but she is trying to figure out why a fiend of hers has been killed... and she is not even sure that she is really dead.... Both are lead along a merry chase with many different twists and turns and they end up helping each other in the end...

Format: Hardcover
On the surface, they could not have been more opposite. Cyrus Colfax Chandler is a country boy, who loves beer, meat and potatoes. Eugenia Swift is an arty intellect, who is a museum director that knows artifacts like no one does. Cyrus realizes that this feisty woman is nothing like the fragile and dependent female who was his deceased wife. He acknowledges that he needs her help if he wants to gain access to Glass House in order to regain the priceless Hades Cup that his former partner stole from him. That was the same man who seduced and ultimately killed his spouse.
Eugenia does not want anything to do with Cyrus even as she is stuck with the man at the insistence of her boss. She ostensibly goes to Glass House to categorize the collection that the Seabrook Glass Museum will inherit. However, she also has a hidden agenda. She travels to Frog Cove Island in hopes of finding out what really happened to her former friend, who allegedly was lost at sea near here. Thus, these two individuals end up confiding in each other and soon work together as a team. Ultimately, they fall in love with one another.
SHARP EDGES is a fun to read romantic suspense that also challenges the reader. The lead characters and their relationship provides the light hearted entertainment needed to cool down the intensive tension-charged story line. Jayne Ann Krentz has produced another winner that deserves to become her latest New York Times bestseller.

I liked this plot. I think JAK even managed to surprise w/who was the bad guy in the end. It had some good twists and turns. The male/female leads were typical, but I like that. I don't want her to change up how she writes her leads. This was published in 1998. It's a good read.

Format: Hardcover
I really found the hero and heroine to be believable, the storyline was interesting, and the setting was really fun to read about.
There were, however, a few major problems with the story, which I found distracting. In the style of "Scooby-Doo", the "bad guy" confesses all, and long drawn out conversations ensue -- all while the "bad guy" is holding the gun and we're waiting for him to pull the trigger. I find this particularly irritating in a story. Maybe criminals actually do confess all and engage in an interview with their intended victims about their motivations and how they did what they did, just before they plan to kill them, but it doesn't seem real to me. I had the feeling that the writer was taking the easy way out of unfolding a rather complicated story by letting the criminal spill the beans this way.
I was also a bit disturbed by the ease the main characters had in falling into bed with one another. There wasn't enough sexual tension, and the whole sex thing seemed just a bit too casual for my taste. Because of the backgrounds of both the hero and heroine, I felt that there was a whole lot of depth to these characters that I never got to see, which was disappointing.
Krentz does have a strong talent -- the writing is smooth, but it seems as though she rushed through this story, and brushed over some failings in the plot.
This is the 2nd story by her that I've read -- I'm intrigued enough to keep reading, I am sure she is capable of writing some very good stories, even though this one was a bit disappointing.
