I really wanted to rate this 3 ?? stars ??? the book was entertaining but not my all time favorite Roberts books. The story is about smoke jumpers in Missoula. It centers on 1 woman in the group, Rowan Tripp and her relationship with the hot rookie, Gulliver. There are times I found the female characters rather crass but I guess they needed to be since the jumped out of planes to put fires out. Like many of Roberts books .. there is lot of hot romance and some suspense. For me the mystery person was quite obvious.
I thought Rebecca Lowman did a good job narrating the book but at time could not distinguish 1 character from another ??? especially the male characters
I've heard so much about Nora Roberts books that I thought I would try one. I'm sorry to say that this book came off as juvenile. The story was run of the mill to say the least. I was happy to read about strong women, both in mind and body through out the story. This is a fine book for a young girl to read but anyone over the age of 17 don't waste your time.
I was so looking forward to this book. I have been reading Nora Roberts for years. I may even have read everything she has published. I loved last years "The Search" and "Birthright" is my all time favorite. This one just didn't have it. Maybe I just had no interest in fire jumpers, I don't know. I just know it wasn't up to her usual standard. With that said, JDRobb's last In Death book, "Treachery in Death" was the best yet.
The mystery was so obvious and the story took forever to get to the obvious conclusion.
Cut about half of it out.
Haven't heard her before. She was OK.
I loved The Witness and wanted to try more Nora after that. Now very disappointed. Afraid to try more. My time is too valuable.
Mother of teenaged bear, Wife to chaos, Warrior
Thought provoking but no event climber
No I thought Nora Roberts could have done more with this book trying to figure out why was my biggest obstacle I couldn't get it I just wanted to be done with it
A 'who done it' love story with no surprises at all. Easy to pick the 'badie' early in the story and the predictable love matches are boring.
Avoid multiple predictable characters and story line.
The narrator was good, but she could only read the story not change it.
Good story for insomnia, nothing special here.
I can't guess how many times I have listened to this book/story. I love the characters and story.
Great work Nora.
Usually Nora writes very strong female characters. That's still the case in this one, but there's so much little-lady-ing going on that I just can't enjoy the story. I don't mind the fire-jumping - I think that a lot of her most interesting stuff centers around whatever career has caught her fancy, but a lot of the male characters here, while possibly true-to-life, just turned me off.
