"You can't bottle wish fulfillment, but Nora Roberts certainly knows how to put it on the page." (The New York Times)
Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
Astonishingly, this was my first Nora Roberts book and I must say she does have very nice prose and a fine sense of setting. But hopefully, her other books have better characters because the love interest in this novel was disturbing to me. The male 'hero' holds his woman down - literally and becomes enraged when she stops kissing and asks for time to think. Our heroine says she's in love but you really have to wonder why. Knowing what I know - I don't think I could dance at their wedding. I hear it's an early work though so perhaps it's just dated - if that's the case, thank God for progress!
Very classic romance. Lifts the spirits with the finding of love. perfect for a rainy afternoon.
You can definitely tell that this book is one of her earlier books. It is a true romance and if you are looking for the typical guy meets girl, loses girl, wins girl back and marries girl then this is the book for you!
The tidle says a lot. I enjoyed the book and and relaxed while the naration with music carried on. The characters were interesting.
What would you do as an heiress whose father blew through the family money and you were destitute? Start a summer camp! This contemporary romance with a rather predictable ending had enough going on within the story to keep me entertained for 4 hours.
My strongest criticism is with the narrator. She is a young woman and her voices for women were all exactly the same. Since most of the dialog was between 2 women, it did become confusing as to which woman was speaking. Narration is much more difficult than simply reading a book. It's acting and a good narrator is a joy to listen to. This narrator needs more experience in order to become a narrator to follow.
Yes, she has a variety of types of books. This one was very light, I prefer more meat to a book. If you want pure romance and not much else to a story this book is for you. The characters were likable. The romance was far fetched but, cute.
"It is what it is". People seeking romance with a little story will like this. It was enjoyable. I prefer plot, mystery, action, romance and in depth characters that you can get vested in.
She did a good job with this story.
Maybe a life time movie.
There are many more books that would be a better selection for a movie, Dianne Duvall's and Jeanine Frost.
This book was a pleasant diversion.
Don't know have not read printed version
Give the male characters a more masculine voice. Especially Chaz, make him more masculine and sensual.
If the stalls could talk
I have read the Witness and I thought that was fantastic. This was ok, not great as the witness. I still am looking forward to reading other works by Nora Roberts and could also be the narrator. This book was ok not great.
