    This is an author I have often loved reading. But this was a rather poor version of her writing.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Risky Business - 3/5 - So this isn't the worst of Nora's early books by any stretch of the imagination. Compared to some of her other early works this was very readable. The suspense was pretty good, as the Hero and the heroine try to work out who killed the Hero's twin brother, Jerry. I didn't suspect the bad guy until right before the reveal. The Hero was not my favorite - Jonas was something of a selfish ass coming in planning to use the heroine however he had to in order to get his revenge f Risky Business - 3/5 - So this isn't the worst of Nora's early books by any stretch of the imagination. Compared to some of her other early works this was very readable. The suspense was pretty good, as the Hero and the heroine try to work out who killed the Hero's twin brother, Jerry. I didn't suspect the bad guy until right before the reveal. The Hero was not my favorite - Jonas was something of a selfish ass coming in planning to use the heroine however he had to in order to get his revenge for his brother's murder. He just inserts himself into her life, bosses her around, demands she take him places (for her own safety supposedly) and he comes across for much of the book as cold and unfeeling. So imagine my surprise when after days of the hero being an ass the heroine realizes she's falling in love with him. Why? Later in the book he kinda becomes a different character... And yes, even I think he's too pushy/creepy there at the end. (view spoiler)[ He leaves per the heroine's request but goes off to woo the heroine's 10 year old daughter, admitting that the way to get to the heroine is through her daughter. What kind of grandparents let a strange man take their granddaughter to the zoo? Then he brooks no argument when he says they will marry, puts the ring onto her finger and tells her to get used to the idea. Not very romantic. (hide spoiler)] The heroine was even more annoying. Set aside by her daughter's father and left to have her baby alone, Liz is basically an emotional coward who hides and runs from her feelings and stubbornly insists on being independent in everything - despite times when it would make sense to ask for help. She frustrated me more than she earned my sympathy. And Nora Roberts sucks at writing kids. Faith, who we meet briefly at the end of the book is supposed to be nearly 11 years old. Yet when we meet her, she's just lost two teeth in an obvious location revealed by her smile (at her age she should be losing molars..). But that's kind of nitpicky. It's when they get around to her dialogue - she speaks in simple baby sentences, talks about how she tried to run really fast in her new sneakers, fell down and skinned her knee and didn't cry. She leaps into Jonas's arms when he comes to visit. I'm telling you, I know kids this age and they're a touch more mature. She's written like a six-year-old...not a girl on the verge of adolescence. Other than the characters, the book was pretty good. The Welcoming - 3/5 - This is a pretty decent little book - nothing earth shattering or spectacular but it kept me entertained and I enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on FBI Agent Roman DeWinter who has come to Charity's inn on the Orcas Islands to investigate something...only he's undercover, since Charity is also under suspicion. So he poses as a handyman and as surly as Roman is, Charity starts falling in love with him. What I enjoyed about Roman though is that, despite his gruff and sometimes rude behavior, once he realizes he's in love, he embraces it. There was a great deal of foreshadowing regarding the angst potential in this relationship. Charity ended up having to fire one of her employees for calling in sick when she wasn't, and Charity kept crying about how upset she was that her employee LIED to her. Well, that says it right there. Charity is going to have a pisser of a conniption when she finds out Roman is lying...I'm surprised he didn't see it coming to that degree. And she was really frustrating about it, refusing to use any logic or common sense when looking at it. (view spoiler) So she was beyond irrational and it frustrated me. There were other times when her behavior was somewhat aggravating too, but it by no means ruined the story for me. Overall, it was a fun read.

    Well this book started slow for me. I am not a mystery reader. I typically love romance! This had that as well! I really was not sure i would like the book. I started getting into it mid stream and the ending is the best! The story is about a struggling single mom doing her best. She has been hurt and finds that she has huge walls up. Her focus is never herself only everyone else's needs. I would recommend a short sweet book.

    I only read the first story. I finished it because I thought that maybe, at some point it might get better. I was wrong. I didn't like the characters (really disliked the violent streak of the guy), the plot could have been better handled, and the romance was just not realistic, I could not understand how they fell in love. First and last Nora Roberts for me.

    I didn't find the romance very believable. The chemistry was wrong, and the transition from rival to all of a sudden attraction and interest and love was not smooth and believable. The book was easy to read, but not fun like Nora Robert's usual.
