This book is the best out of the series. I was sad to have it end. The characters and story line was so well developed and came together beautifully.
This book kept me interested the entire time!

This book is worth the read. It's not one of Nora Robert's best books, but it isn't bad. The characters are good and strong, but the book didn't have as much substance as the first in the series.

This is a good book and it keeps moving. Characters are well developed and have good depth. I love how Jude's character developed and grew throughout the book.

I put off getting this book for a long time because of the poor reviews on the narrator, but it really wasn't that bad.

Oh, to stop the voices in her head. Other people's voices, that is. As a pub owner with an extra-special gift, all Cait Gallagher craves is a moment of silence. That, and to own the building her pub is housed in along with the heart of the building's landlord, Shane MacAuliffe. Though she is irresistibly drawn to Shane, her vulnerabilities cause her to put up a tough exterior. When the two butt heads, more than sparks fly, and Cait finds herself trembling on the precipice of love.

This book isn't bad, but it's not great. It is very similar to the first in the series. The weakness and insecurity of the main character gets a bit old. Worth the read if you have time to kill.

I listen to a couple books a month and this is the beat one I have heard in a while. The setting and characters are very well done. the book is fast pace and keeps you hooked all the way.

The narrator is probably one of my new favorites. She was wonderful and made the book better.

His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

The overall book was good, but I agree with the other reviews, the main character was bratty. Blake is a great guy, but Sue Lin is just a control freak. I felt bad for her son!

It was nice to close the series off with some of the old characters, but I would have liked to see more of the original characters like Cooper and Sarah to finish the Thunder Point books. In all, it was worth the read.
