"[Roberts] delivers the goods with panache and wit. This time out, she skillfully blends a stirring love story with nonstop suspense, effortlessly shifting from melodrama to light comedy." (Publishers Weekly)
"This book is a sure winner for aficionados of contemporary romantic suspense." (Library Journal)
This is certainly one of those cases where narrator and story were made for each other. The different characters and the humour characters you along the tale, until the last word has been spoken.
"YES YES YES"
You know they are going to end up together - why else write about it however...
Very interesting and independant characters, very interesting and insightful read.
Sandra Burr is also really great.
Again... couldn't put this book down - finished it in 2 days!
Thank you for keeping my weekends alive - especially the boring ones.
I read a lot of Nora Roberts and I find them all good. However, once in a while, one of her books really gets to me. This is one of those. I loved the characters, the storyline and the narrator. Ahhhhh.... Next Nora Roberts book please!!
it takes talent to read as so many different people in one book and the reader does great
Liked the book and story but not the RECORDING as there is a lot of back ground noise starting about 3/4 the way through the first part of this book. Very distracting and when i asked if there was a better quality recording of the book i got a email back from Audible full of questions to be answered. I can't be bothered going through it all so am disappointed in the support from Audible and Audio quality of the first part of this book. I have never had an Audio problem before, just wanted a better quality recording or perhaps my credit back. :(
"Typical Roberts - but enjoyed it"
This is a typical Nora Roberts book .. strong woman meets strong man .. they try to avoid their chemistry but can't, one of them has someone trying to do them in .. happy ending for all.
I absolutely enjoyed it ??? it made my commuting in and out of Boston much more pleasant it one could say commuting is a pleasant. I always enjoy Sandra Brown???s narriation.
I have enjoyed listening to this book....not the best Nora book I have ever read but good strong main characters and alot of effort went into the story setting.
Good easy listening story, has it all, little suspense, little romance. Worth reading.
This was a great read!! I began reading and could not put the book down. I could not believe that I read all night finishing the book at daybreak.
"Classic Nora Roberts"
It's possible. I liked the story as a whole. I find that I tend to like Nora Roberts older material as opposed to the newer stuff because the newer stuff can be way to graphic for me but this wasn't bad.
Overall, it was a decent book. Although, may I point out, her dad was a drunk and in the book it was made to look like alcoholics are just jolly. Not the best message to send out. At least Nora was smart and didn't put him behind a wheel or anything. Still, when she mentioned how she never saw her father without a flask but it was ok because he wasn't a mean drunk, that's not a healthy message in my opinion.
