Better than average, but not my favourite
Can't spoil the ending......
I found the starting point for the relationship between Burke and Remi too hard to swallow, whilst I was waiting for them to get together, I kept thinking how totally unrealistic it was.
I like a book with a few good suspects like this one, and I especially enjoyed that it strayed from the Hardy formula, in that the client did not go to trial.
I struggled right from the start of this book at how a smart, law abiding main character can fall in love with a thief, and although I enjoyed the mystery, the attraction of Miranda to her thief was too unbelievable to really get me in.
I like the main character of this book , she was damaged but Nora Roberts took you on her journey to good health mixed in with a murder mystery and a good strong no nonsence love interest.
Just a pleasant way to pass time whilst exercising, but nothing particularly memorable about this book, if fact I realised when it got to the siege at the television station that I had already read the book.
I loved the beginning of this story where the main character is forced to endure a surgery to look like someone else. I found it a little difficult to get over the premise that she remained in that character or that she falls in love with someone who holds her with such contempt, but the twist in the 'who dunnit' kept me listening.
I enjoyed the story of this case and the conflict that the tough hard headed Abe has to resolve in order to get to the truth of his daughter's murder. There were a few glitches in the narration where lines were repeated which made me think I was going a little mad the first time.
I love a book where the main character has great respect for the women in his life and the affection Eli had for his grandmother, Hesta was well written, as was the gradual integration of Eli into Whiskey Beach and with the love of Abra Walsh helping him to taking control of his life again. It was a nice journey to be part of.
This was my first John Lescroat book and I am now a fan. It was a good story with lots of characters and a main character that was dragged into a murder investigation all the while not being sure if his wife Frannie had been unfaithful.
I think the reason I enjoy listening to Nora Roberts is that whilst the romance is a key theme in the book her female characters are so strong in their own right and Rowan Trip was no different.
Loved the fact that the setting for this book was such a contrast to the scene of the murder and where the end finally played out. As usual Nora Roberts leads you in one direction feeling like a forgone conclusion only to finish somewhere else.
