Another Man's Treasure


 


 

‘Another Man’s Treasure’ by Lake Worth business owner offers mystery and romance

Lake Worth business owner and lover of Florida, author James V. O’Connor, demonstrates a deft range of writing skills and his ability to craft an engaging and page-turning read in his new romantic mystery novel, Another Man’s Treasure. Reflecting the get-organized trend popularized by numerous TV shows and magazine articles, O’Connor’s central character is a professional home organizer whose simple life is about to explode. “People in Lake Worth understand the importance of being organized,” states O’Connor, “so they can relate to the main character and to the task that he has been hired to undertake.”

O’Connor’s captivating story involves well-crafted ordinary people dealing with realistic  romantic entanglements, complex family relationships, and frustrating clutter. Centered on a search for hidden riches in an old mansion, Another Man’s Treasureis an entertaining tale that has readers gradually sympathizing with conflicting characters, stunned by surprises, recalculating the eventual outcome, and pondering the book’s messages long after they’ve finishing reading it.

“The mystery plays on everyone’s fantasy of finding treasures in their attic or forgotten storage,” says O’Connor. “The romance will intrigue any married man or woman who has ever been physically or emotionally—and dangerously—attracted to someone other than his or her spouse.”

As a book publicist who has worked with bestselling authors, O’Connor is no stranger to the challenges of capturing the attention of an audience. In Another Man’s Treasure, he skillfully develops the necessary dynamics and employs clever dialogue as caring people collide over materialism and love. Included in the mix of opposite behaviors are greed and generosity, fidelity and temptation, and honesty and deception. 

Set in Albany, New York, the main character, Ted, is a former Chicago stockbroker turned professional organizer. He’s hired by a difficult client to clean out his deceased father’s cluttered Victorian mansion. Ted’s secret task is to find something of great value that the client believes his eccentric father hid in the mysterious house. What—or who—is trying to stop him?

Although he’s married, Ted finds himself falling for another client, an attractive and flirtatious single mother. He resists her, but events keep bringing her into his life, intensifying their relationship. His wife and the woman’s jealous ex-husband suspect something is going on. He makes two discoveries, one that captivates the city, and one that determines his fate.

While this mystery-romance novel is a new genre for O’Connor, he excels in his descriptions of the interaction, the modern American city atmosphere, and the classical portrayal of true-to-life emotions, needs, and frailties. The memorable characters, storytelling, and unpredictable twists and turns make for an enjoyable and entertaining read.

Discovering Moons

Another Man’s Treasure convincingly relates how emotions deeper than passion can challenge and threaten even the most loyal and steadfast heart.”
