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.

Critic Reviews

"A true master of her craft, Roberts has penned an exceptional tale that burns with all the brilliance and fire of a finely cut diamond." (Publishers Weekly)
"Nora Roberts teams up with her pseudonymous writing personality, J. D. Robb, in this sexy, suspenseful novel centered on a fortune in stolen diamonds." (Booklist)

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.

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.

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.

Better than I thought!

Buy the two together it's well worth it. I love the Nora Roberts book and the love story that went with it. Then I love how it went to the future for Eve to solve. it really came full circle and it's good to see what happened to the characters of the past. If she hasn't already I would love to read more stories about Lane and Max. Loved it.
