Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements, 2009

Finally out of the celebrity spotlight and away from her mother's demands, Cilla is free to do what she loves: fixing up houses for profit. But her current project is personal. The Shenandoah Valley farm house was once the vacation home of Hollywood luminary Janet Hardy, Cilla's grandmother.  

When Cilla uncovers a stash of her grandmother's private letters, and begins asking questions about the past, she becomes the target of a crazed killer who's determined to keep family secrets buried no matter what the cost.

An excellent story

The story was captivating and the narration brilliant. It's worth listening to multiple times. Great entertainment!

Terrible

Cannot get into it.... It's just a story about someone renovating a house... I cannot even get to the end.
Cannot return it for some reason.
I would strongly suggest you skip this one...

Not a bad Nora Roberts book

Better than some, worse than others. It was read in a rather over dramatic and breathless way, but after a while I got over that.

Huh?

I did not know who Nora Roberts was when I purchased this book. The story sounded interesting to me so I got it. I did take some abuse from my wife and daughter when they found out but it was a good story and I'm secure in my manhood. I will probably read more of her books and I don't care who know it.

Tribute

Good story as you would expect from Nora Roberts. I found the narrator to be off putting, took awhile to stop listening to her voice and concentrate on the story. I wont listen to her narrations again.

For the love of Ford

Gotta love the male counterpart in this one. He's considerate, funny, strong willed, patient, and generally adorable. Coming from a male reader, that is saying a lot.

The book itself was great, the romance deep, and the mystery was interesting. One of her better books.

Nora Needs a New Reader

This is a typical Nora Roberts book. I would say if you've read Nora before and enjoyed it, you will know what to expect here, a light story. I would say Nora is probably remodeling her house as there is entirely too much detail on the remodeling in this novel. The thing that completely turned me off on this one is the reader. The reader was TERRIBLE. It probably would have been better for her not to use accents at all as opposed to the ridiculous accents she attempted. The worst part, however, was her poor inflection. I probably would have enjoyed the book more if I had read it myself. The reader absolutely took away from this book. I will be certain to never order another audiobook with this reader.

With a Mystery thrown in

Terrific story with strong, unusual, and very real
people. I thoroughly enjoyed a story that became a love story and mystery with pervasive undertones, happy togetherness all superbly narrated in a most sensitive and believable manner. A great expierience. Something to just enjoy.

Might have been better with a male reader.

The book itself is a good read the problem is in the narration. The voice was irritating. I think if it would have been read by a male or male/female team it might have been better. The audio was annoying to the point it was difficult to finish. This was disappointing because the actual book was so good.

Narrator whispers

I joyed reading this book and thought the audiobook would be fun to listen to. However it isn't because narrator whispers constantly and you can't hear what she says. Also There isn't much difference between the men and women's voices

Average

I was glad to see Nora Roberts coming out with a book that was not a part of a trilogy, but this is a very disappointing book. Shallow characters, basic plot, the good guy is all good, etc.

I miss the author who wrote Birthright - prolific is only good if the books are good.

Its only OK for a Nora Roberts

I have read/listened to nearly all NR's books so I am certainly a fan. However, I find "Tribute" is another example of the deterioration in Ms Roberts works. What happened to the quality of "Montana Sky", "Honest Illusions", "True Betrayals" etc? I appreciate that romantic novels are not meant to be taxing on brain power but her books are getting more and more lightweight. Still, the story is OK but far from Ms Roberts' best.

Home Remodel

If you enjoy stories about picking out tile, faucets and your having dad paint walls this book is the one for you.
On the other hand, if you prefer a story line, mystery, romance and even a little bit of action move on to another selection.
