Publisher's Summary

Featuring two connected stories from Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb: Remember When and Big Jack.

Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law.

Laine's past has just caught up with her, though - in a very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her and why.

The answer lies in a hidden fortune - a fortune that will change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future generations. And danger and death will surround that fortune for years to come - until New York City detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets on the case.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "If you've read or listened to Big Jack don't buy!"

    I've purchased every In Death book audible has available. I love Susan Ericksen as Eve Dallas. As much as I like the books I would not purchase this one unless you have not listened to Big Jack. If you have read or listened to Big Jack that's all part 2 is. Part 1 is a decent story in itself. It's just the prequel to Big Jack and has nothing to do with Eve and the rest of the gang. So, I've now purchased the same story twice.

    "Interesting Duo"

    Remember When is actually two separate stories, one in current time about a diamond hiest and a second story in which Eve Dallas is involved. The second story is related to the first story. A former reviewer said to read this book prior to number 17 due to Summerset, the butler's, return. However, I STRONGLY advise you to read this book after number 17 because of the Peabody story arc. If you read this one prior to number 17 it spoils the surprise. I enjoyed the Eve Dallas part better than the first part. Another great story by JD Robb!

    "Incorrect number"

    This should really be numbered as 16.5 as the In-Death part of the two books actually occurs before 17 in terms of the progression of the relationship and overall story of Roark and Dallas. Summerset, the butler, is still on vacation, whereas in 17 he returns. So if you listen to it as 17.5, and after 17 as indicated, you will hear that Summerset hasn't returned from vacation yet, even though he returned in 17.

    "Remember When"

    I always like Nora Roberts but this book is so boring. Very disappointed. I down loaded it for vacation I'll remember the vacation but not this book.

    Story
    "Hooked on In Death"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Remember When (includes 'Big Jack': In Death, Book 17.5) to be better than the print version?

    I don't buy print version books anymore. It saves me room.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to the first 22 books and to me each one is unique and equally good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was laughing out loud-- glad I was alone!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm absolutely hooked on the series. Love them all!

    "not bad for a romance"

    Listenable and kept me interested. Certainly not up for an Audie, but it kept me around while I was doing other things. Of course, you have to like the whole romantic mystery genre to put up with it. Not a waste of $15.

    Story
    "Filthy Disgusting Language"
    What would have made Remember When (includes 'Big Jack': In Death, Book 17.5) better?

    It would have been a great book if it wasn't so hard to listen to because they used the "F" word over and over and over.


    What could Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It's as though Nora isn't intelligent enough to get her story across using our beautiful American language so she has to resort to offensive vile and disgusting language.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    On a 1 to 10 scale she's about a 5. Most of the male voices sounded to feminine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger every time I heard the "F" word.

    "Apparently I prefer J D Robb to Nora Roberts"

    I just couldn't make it through the first book. There was nothing wrong with it but it just didn't capture my interest. The second book, the Eve Dallas book was good. Although there is a tie between the two stories, it's not really necessary to have read the first in order to understand the second.

    Story
    "Not a lot of the beloved characters."
    What did you like best about Remember When (includes 'Big Jack': In Death, Book 17.5)? What did you like least?

    I like the idea of the story… I missed the characters…


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has made these stories addicting. I don't think once you've listened you Will not want to go back to reading. And if you do to her characterizations give you a real good idea who these people are. She's wonderful


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If there was more Rourke......however I cannot believe these books haven't been made into a series or something on HBO Netflix… Someone needs to wake up and do this. I can picture actresses and actors for all characters except for Rourke... If they don't get him right it will not be worth watching.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually comment I just give five stars all the way around because these books can't be beat. This was it one of my favorites because it did not have enough of the beloved characters.
