After starting the second book in the series, I knew the story and knew exactly what the third would be. I like Nora Roberts, but this was so predictable it was a waste to buy the other books. Bought the series at same time when it was on sale.
Her books are becoming rewrites of previous books. I remember other books with lost treasures to only be found by love. The ideas in the book are copies of other books. Change the characters and a few other things. The narrator was boring as well. I used to love Nora Roberts books, and JD Robb, but she has dried up and it's not cutting it for me anymore. I will wait for reviews on future work before purchasing it, hate to waste my money.
Very typical Robyn Carr. It is just like Virgin River, a different location and different characters. Right from the beginning you know just what is going to happen. Having Therese Plummer as narrator you kind of think of the Virgin Rivers names as she does the new characters. Sometimes I just like an easy going book with some romance, so this fits the bill very well. Nothing really to the book, easy listening.
Like the last book, where are all the players? This is Eve and Peabody, a little Rourke and very little of anyone else. The story was okay, not one of the best by far, it misses being fun. I usually have a good laugh here and there in the books, but it's missing that again, like the last book. So sorry to see the series take a giant step down. I enjoyed the series cause it had a good mystery plot, and humor rolled into one book. She can end the series anytime she wants, I have just about lost interest.
Romance part predictable. The story itself kept you listening. Enjoyed the series, Nora always does a great job. Most are so predictable its hard to listen to after second book, not the case with this one. I only reviewed last book since it was a series. No regrets on purchase, buy it you wont be sorry.
I was enjoying the book, but it didn't end. The next book is like the next chapter, and I hate when they force it on you. Lucky the next was available just a few days after I finished first. After I finished the second, found the same ploy in place. Found I no longer cared to see how it ends. Not a bad story, but got bored with the same stuff.
This book is amazing. Kept my interest, waiting to see what happened next. It is very hard to get past the beginning. It is sick, twisted people playing with lives, but I must say I never stopped listening.
I enjoy Noras books so much. I needed some easy listening, not wanting to keep track of a lot of characters. It fit the bill, it was easy, fun, interesting and I am sorry to say I think now have all her books. I enjoyed it, wish I could find more that weren't just four or five hours. I don't like short books. She just can't write them fast enough for me. Good book, worth the credit.
I was needing a good story. It is another book that you know the ending right from the start, but that's what Robyn's books are all about. Nice story, listened all day, put me a calm mood and the day just flowed. Now I just have to wait for a longer book, hope it doesn't take too long.
Who wrote this? None of the usual sex play between Eve and Roake, not even once.. No play between Roarke and Eve at all. No Peabody and McNab remarks either. No Summerset, Mavis,Leonardo, etc. It's all a cops story any author could have written. It doesn't even feel like a book of the "In Death Series". As a matter of fact, I don't consider it part of the series. Its a stand alone book, more of Nora Roberts story. Should the next book, lack the laughs I usually get when listening I will give up the series completely. I used to finish listening to a book and check constantly to see when the next was coming out. I don't care much about the next except to see if she is back on track or if I should find a new series.
The story was good, I do like Nora Roberts, but this was just a book that had a few characters from In Death Series in it. To me it was a huge let down. Hope it doesn't happen again, I used to love the series.
