I'm a HUGE Nora Roberts fan, but this book wasn't one of my favorites. I don't consider it a waste of a credit, but I feel I got more from it regarding training my dog than I did as far as it being a great romantic suspense. Like I said, I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. However, I can DEFINITELY see it being made into one of her TV movies on Lifetime!
I really enjoyed this book. I have read several of Nora Roberts' books, and liked most of them, so I was prepared to like this one. I believe it's one of her better ones. I liked the characters, and it stayed interesting to the end. At the end, I wanted to go out and buy a chocolate lab.
Read the reviews and was so-so about getting this book. It was ok, I enjoyed the listen. Easy to listen to. People said predictable - but isn't that true of many romance/mystery/thrillers? As for the dog training parts - ok too. At least it got me to go work with my own dogs a little more!
It's my first Nora Roberts - I'll probably look at some of her other books as well.
Not a bad book. Lots about dogs and dog training, so if your a dog lover this is a plus. But there are also some spicy bits and a nice thriller undercurrent. I do recommend.
I love dogs, but if I had wanted to read a book about dog training, I would have purchased one instead of a novel masquerading as a romantic thriller. To make matters worse, the narrator was one of the worst I have ever listened to. Her style is a combination of choppy, sing-song and baby talk. I am about half way through and don't know if I can bear to waste the time finishing this book.
Early nora was very entertaining. Maybe too many books made her writing banal. I stopped reading her for years but decided to try again. THE SEARCH is a waste of my money. There is no plot to this story up to the second chapter in part 2. That's where I stopped listening. i need something to make me wonder what will happen next or how it will happen. NOTHINGS happening,so far, in this book
I expected something better, something that was more about "The Search" and less about the romance of the main characters. I was put off by the crude language and the details of sexual encounters of the two main characters. There was such potential for this book, and it did not deliver.
I really enjoyed this book and the indepth detail of dog- training and furniture- making shows Ms Robert's took the time on research. I just wish that there were secondary characters or story lines that expanded and made it not so one dimensional story.
Nothing special. But for $9.95 I'm not complaining too much. However the narrator's voice is wrong for this book. She sounds like pollyanna, even when talking about serious things.
