Sanctuary | [Nora Roberts]

Sanctuary

Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

Publisher's Summary

Successful photographer Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

Jo realizes that it's time to return to Sanctuary. The island inn, still run by her estranged family, brings back painful memories and the troubled relationships she struggled so hard to escape and forget. But it seems that her stalker can even breach the safety of this tiny island, where everybody knows everybody - or thinks they do. And Sanctuary may be the most dangerous place of all.

    "Good Suspense, Shocking Revelations!"

    I would have given this 5 stars, but I had trouble with the heroine's thought processes. Her basic character is smart, strong and fearless, but then she crumbles into a dithering idiot. I felt like there should have been more information given to make such a leap in personality. All the characters have issues, but Jo-Ellen's is too extreme in her self-esteem.

    "Sanctuary by Nora Roberts"

    Sanctuary was a fun read. It kept me on the end of my chair a lot. Nora Roberts certainly can keep you in the moment in this book.

    "Nora Roberts at her best"

    I loved this book. I was never exactly sure how it was going to turn out and it continued to keep me wanting for more. I am sad that it is done. I need to find another Nora Roberts soon...

    Story
    "Predictable but a good read"

    I don't dislike Sandra Burr, but she is also not my first pick a narrator. Then again narration is in the ear of the listener. I have read numerous complaints about Tanya Eby but I find her a delight to listen to. As far as the story goes it was good and I liked the characters, but it was predictable. That being said I will most likely listen to it again some rainy afternoon where I don't want to concentrate to hard.

    Story
    "Too dark and violent"

    I don't mind suspense and brief violence, but the graphic description of a rape just turned me off. I would have rated it a 2 and returned it, but I did that with Carnal Innocence and then didn't have the opportunity to rate it and warn off other listeners. That story was so bad that I had to stop after 6 hours. This story is much better, investing me in the characters enough to tough out finishing it, although I guessed who the murderer was in the first few chapters. I enjoy most of the "In Death" books, so it's not just the murders that bothered me, it was the graphic nature, and describing the rape in sexual terms that has me crossing this one off my "Listen again" list.
