I have loved Nora Roberts for a number of years now and this book is completely up to her standards. Her trilogies stay in mind and keep me wondering about the characters even when I am not reading them. This book is no different. I can't wait until I get her next book in this series so I can see what happens next. I particularly love that the book takes place in Boonsboro, a place I have visited and in buildings that really exist.
Someone else's voice. I couldn't get through the story because of the guy's voice.
Couldn't make it past the first few pages
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
A predictable story with a slight leaning into the super natural with a female ghost that might or might not influence two potential lovers. Roberts writes this book with a light hand and little imagination, but as always, her competent craftsmanship is appreciated.

NEVER have I been the reader of bodice rippers, Avoided them like hornets nests. My life has always been rich enough in the real thing to even consider, want, enjoy anything even slightly resembling . . . . .
Well, this Nora Roberts is an outrageously capable writer - who knew?!, She knows how to weave a story that holds your interest as it encompasses ALL the emotional experiences of real life: the visual, the scents, the absolutely subtle. Never have I so often giggled, laughed out loud, cried deep in my chest for poignant, or fear, or just plain joy as with this book. Whew, she really knows how to write.
This woman writer is absolutely rich in the language of the heart.
So, the book took me totally by surprise. Even just her writing took me by surprise. Sheesh!
The story, well, you had to have been there.,.it sucked me in like a soft warm beginnings of a tornado, that part before you realize it might become dangerous, suck you in and smash you to pieces. The story is just amazing,
I am pretty sure this Nora Roberts is a woman but she understands men way better than I ever or any other woman I know has. Her men are so. . . . . real. Never just place holders.
I may not be the best person to review this book.
Who knows what the rest of her books are like.
Could be a fluke.
Can hardly wait to find out.
Oh, and did I mention her narrator? Perfect!
The exceptional plot and characters of "Witness," my first Nora Roberts novel, inspired me to buy this entire trilogy. I wish I had not wasted the second two credits. Soft, squishy, predictable. A white, upper-middle-class family grows up in a small eastern seaboard town; I could not relate to any of them. I admittedly would have better tolerated a similar story on the left coast.
Some action, I guess.
I don't know, but he was boring also.
It got good at the end. But the whole first part was just boring. And I love Nora Roberts books.
It was just a big disappointment.
It was not just a romance story.
It was funny as well as intriquing.
I enjoyed his expressions and different voices he used.
No I listen in the car on comutes back and forth to work.
I have questions about ordering the book so I can read it and also the narrative version so I can listen also.
Tell us about yourself!
Love family friendship
Compared this to the other books in the series
When DA jumps out the window.
I love audio versions to help pass time doing housework, and driving.
Lizzy. She gives a great challenge to the other characters. And, she give the B&B a great feature.
I always want to listen to Nora Roberts book in one sitting.
Filled the time spent driving.
Predictable, no suspense. First book of N Roberts I've listened to, may be the last.
Gave a face to the characters.
