©1987 Nora Roberts; (P)2002 Books on Tape, Inc.
The dialog was so contrived I could barely listen to it. The characters were luke warm and there was no believable build up of their going on an adventure together. without giving it away - they literally stumble on each other and the next thing you know off they go! the reader was awful at the male voices - it actually sounded as if she was making fun of their roles. If her other books are like this then I just read the last one. in a nutshell - yuck!
Can't say that I'm an avid reader of Nora Robert's novels. However decided to give Hot Ice a go. It's another suspense thriller with a hint of romance types...
The ending was okay, didn't particularly care for the explanation on how exactly Doug and Whitney were rescued, seemed a bit sloppy... But did enjoy the friendly banter/dialogue that took place between Whitney and Doug.
This book has the exact same plot as Homeport. If you hear one, you have heard them both. The only change is the venue where the rich girl falls in love with the thief.
I have still not finished this book which is a first for a Nora Roberts book for me. I LOVE Nora's stories, so i'm not sure why its such a struggle for me to finish. I started the book, then stopped and listened to another one... then started again with this one.... stopped again and listened to another book! I've still not listened to the end and i'm not sure why. Perhaps its a bit unrealistic and ...boring?
