The reader was captivating and the story was good enough to make me hope there is a second book. I want to know what happens to the characters as they go through life.
This book was disappointing in many ways. I think Nora should take a break and quit spitting out so many books. The main character is so self-depricating I want to slap her. And she complains too much of what she didn't have growing up. It's frustrating.
Another point of frustration has nothing to do with Nora Roberts and everything to do with the narrator. I live in the south, have always lived in the south, and we do not have accents like this woman employs. The hero of the story sounded like a pompous dandy, not a southern good ole boy that you'd want to have an affair with. We do NOT sound like that down here in the land of Dixie. The entire book, read by this narrator and combined with Nora's lack of compelling style, makes it seem like a really bad episode of "Dallas".
It was boring.
Someone who talks normally. It's like she's reading to a child.
All the repetitive ones.
I really like some of Nora Roberts books. Black Hills, The Search, and The Collector were all good ones but I just gave up on this one halfway through.
Loved the way Nora Roberts used the artist talent of the male lead to strengthen the relationship with Cilla , so many clever references and the comic book twist was enjoyable.
