I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
I will confess to a prejudice against romances. But this one is particularly inane. The male lead thinks like a girl, responds to stimulus like a girl and is unrecognizable as a man. Although you can't miss that he's supposed to be one. And the ghost line is over obvious. I should have known better.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Contemporary (published 2001)
Genre: romantic mystery with a side of paranormal.
Narration: I generally don't care for books with more than one narrator, but James Daniels and Sandra Burr did a nice job.
The plot was simple. A typical NR speed book. The characters were interesting, though I would have liked more detailed backstory for both of the protagonists. I do love that twist at the end.
Worth the credit? Wait for a BOGO or some other sale.
This has always been one of my favorite Nora Roberts books. I like the way the book is narrated,as well. It is just a lovely story to "get lost" in. Enjoy!!
I have to admit, although I love all of her books, this was by far my favorite. It is set in New Orleans, in both present and past tense, and tells a love story that spans over a century.
It is about a love so strong that despite their separation, through murder, they reunite through a haunted house and reincarnation. I think you will love it!
I usually love Nora Robert's novels, but I found the paranormal element of this story a bit creepy. Couldn't even finish it.
I didn't read Midnight Bayou, so I can't say if the audio edition is better.
Declan was my favorite character because he was witty. His prevalent quips made me laugh quite a bit.
They both performed very well; their opposing gender voices sounded realistic and strong.
You thought you killed me...us, but WE never died!
Nora Roberts has done it again!
