I enjoy Nora Roberts books. Have read most of them except the very early ones, Reading her stories makes you feel you are there. The mystery of the Collector Was an added bonus. Hard to put down. Hope you have the latest books.
quite different from the usual trilogy love stories. an excellent read that held my interest to the end. Do you ever read a book that you don't want to end? This is one of those special ones that you hate to finish.
I don't know how nora Roberts does it every year we get 2 eve dallas books a romantic suspense novel and a mini series, but the quality never drops, the detail she goes into in these books also shows the meticulous research she must do into other careers, the heroine in this book is a professional house sitter, the hero an artist (nora does love her artists) the characterisations and the details in her books are engrossing, it's almost impossible to find a place to put the book down. Long may she continue writing
This was great - another example of the brilliant Nora Roberts.
I have traditionally stuck with her romances, but in this one the murder, mystery, suspense thriller was excellent - and mixed in with the two leads who ultimately fall for each other, whilst trying to protect themselves from a vicious killer intent on revenge, was excellent.
As ususal, Nora Roberts does not disappoint. I'm about a 3/4 of the way through, and can't wair to see what happens. I'm sure it will be good. I love the way Nora Roberts puts a story together, and dscribes things. I can always visualize everything, as if I am right there. There are not many who can put a love story and a thriller together and still put in humour. She is a wonderful writer.

This is Nora Roberts at her best. Likeable characters who come alive off the page, an engaging storyline that hooks from the first page and seamless wonderful storytelling. I appreciate an author who can have me perched on the edge of my seat one moment, then smiling at the next and this story does not disappoint. I didn't want it to finish.
We are all going to have our favourite Nora Roberts books and this, for me personally, is one of her best along with Rivers End, Black Hills and The Witness.
Brilliant book but then Nora Roberts never fails to impress me. I have read about 80 -90 of her books so keep them coming. I systematically have read all her 'In Death Series' by her other name (JD Robb) I think it is every September a new one comes out. I have read all up to date and I believe that on that series alone she had written approx. 38 books. Brilliant writter. I am gradually logging them on to my Kindle as I am reading the 'In Death' series again.
This was most intriguing, not a soft little romantic tale, but a few nasty characters make it a bit more hard-edged and you become aware it could all end badly. Throw in some Faberge jewelled eggs, a scary assassin and you have a super read.
Maybe I've read too many Nora Roberts, but much as I always love the characters, some of their thought/actions/speeches are becoming too flowery to be realistic! The story lines have become too predictable, unlike some earlier books when you were never too sure who the bad guy might be. Still a pleasant read.
4.0 out of 5 starsanother thoroughly enjoyable Robert's read

While this story did not have as complex a plot as some of Nora Robert's thrillers it was still a good read. The two main characters were fairly well developed but she could have done a bit more with the true villain of the piece,Vasin. Read it and judge for yourself!
Nora Roberts really gets her teeth into tremendous stories, full of twists and turns, interesting, sometimes dangerous characters, and backgrounds from world shaking events. This has been a very enjoyable read, and can recommend it to anyone interested in a fascinating read.

An improvement on NR recent books! A good read and pacy with believable characters. Not too much smulch as i find that that can detract from the story line. I would like to see NR write more books in this style
