Publisher's Summary

She was a maddening combination of mystery and innocence. But Liz was the key to finding his brother's killer, so cynical Jonas Sharpe had to stick close...too close for comfort.

Very Good

I love Nora Roberts, however, some of her early work is not very good but this one is an exception. I really enjoyed listening to this book on my walks the story was hard to cut off sometimes. Hope you enjoy it.

Nothing special....

This is your standard romance; nothing particularly exciting or remarkable. Actually, it was pretty predictable, but I think that was common for the time period in which this was written. Unless you are a die hard Nora Roberts fan in desperate need of something to fill a few hours, I wouldn't waste the money on this one.

Risky Business

A must read. One of Nora's best. It had everything one requires for great reading. Have read it 4 times, and never grow tired of it.

Recommended

An excellent romantic murder suspense story. Liz is fiercely independent, a single mother running her own business. She gets pulled into a murder investigation after one of her employees is murdered. Jonas meets Liz when he arrives to find out and take revenge on whoever killed his brother. The characters are strong and motivated. The story moves at a steady paced. Gabra Zachman does a good job narrating.

Relaxing read

Romance and a mystery well written and well read. Romance part clean and still interesting. This book is not a major page turner but I really enjoyed it.

Not her best

I love Nora, but this is one of her duds. So cheesy and unbelievable, I can’t even finish it.

Fun and Simple

This is a great book to relax and enjoy. There’s nothing complex about it, but it is a good escape from your regular life that holds your interest.

Just Couldn't Finish It

I normally love Nora Roberts. With this book I just couldn't get into it. I never finished it and have no desire to hear the rest.

Gray twists and turns

This is a great book. A nice love story with some twists and turns of mystery involving the case they got involved in. It didn't get boring and the narrator did an amazing job. I highly recommend this book.
