"This book is a sure winner for aficionados of contemporary romantic suspense." (Library Journal)
You know they are going to end up together - why else write about it however...
Very interesting and independant characters, very interesting and insightful read.
Sandra Burr is also really great.
Again... couldn't put this book down - finished it in 2 days!
Thank you for keeping my weekends alive - especially the boring ones.
I read a lot of Nora Roberts and I find them all good. However, once in a while, one of her books really gets to me. This is one of those. I loved the characters, the storyline and the narrator. Ahhhhh.... Next Nora Roberts book please!!
This is a typical Nora Roberts book .. strong woman meets strong man .. they try to avoid their chemistry but can't, one of them has someone trying to do them in .. happy ending for all.
I absolutely enjoyed it ??? it made my commuting in and out of Boston much more pleasant it one could say commuting is a pleasant. I always enjoy Sandra Brown???s narriation.
I have enjoyed listening to this book....not the best Nora book I have ever read but good strong main characters and alot of effort went into the story setting.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Liked the book and story but not the RECORDING as there is a lot of back ground noise starting about 3/4 the way through the first part of this book. Very distracting and when i asked if there was a better quality recording of the book i got a email back from Audible full of questions to be answered. I can't be bothered going through it all so am disappointed in the support from Audible and Audio quality of the first part of this book. I have never had an Audio problem before, just wanted a better quality recording or perhaps my credit back. :(
Art historian, gardener, feminist. Read for language, characters, history, esp. 18th c. History in US, France, GB, SE Asia, Caribbean.
I did listen to this all the way through, but could not muster much enthusiasm for the wealthy police man. The character of the actress turned antiques dealer was somewhat more varied, and she had a large, colorful family, but I could not care about these characters.
I love the city of Philadelphia, but the book only glimpses a couple of its diverse neighborhoods. Disappointing.
This is certainly one of those cases where narrator and story were made for each other. The different characters and the humour characters you along the tale, until the last word has been spoken.
