Format: Paperback
This is a re-release of two of Nora Roberts' early novels; 'Local Hero' and 'A Will and a Way', both originally written in the late Eighties. They have been repackaged in a pretty cover and are being sold as a book to entertain you in the coming winter months.

Local Hero is about comic book creator Mitch, who meets his new and beautiful neighbour, Hester and her son Radley and falls in love with them both, determined to win himself a family. 'A Will and a Way' is a pimped up Agatha Christie story which has less death and more sex and revolves around the feisty pairing of dramatic jewellery designer, Pandora and television script writer, Michael.

I'm telling you about what date they were originally written, not because I think it's outrageous that books can be repackaged and reprinted - it happens all the time, but because as I was reading 'Local Hero' which is the first book in the volume it struck me that the book must be quite old, and I deliberately went back to the front of the book to check when it had been written, not something I would normally do. The thing that made me check was the fact that the son of the heroine, Hester, in the book gets excited when he finds out that the male love interest in the book, Mitch, has a video recorder - and then later in the book, the hero, Mitch, buys the boy a computer, and it's a big deal because they're so new, nobody else has one.

It's funny how these little details date a book. It's also funny how in another book I wouldn't necessarily notice, but I did here because I stupidly assumed that these were new books by Roberts.

The romance genre is not something I habitually read. I used to read books like this by the bucket load in my early teens, so I am familiar with the 'rules' of romance writing.

Format: Paperback
This is a re-release of two earlier works by Nora Roberts (from 1986). Two full length novels in one book. They are both indicative of why she has become such a well-known and popular author.
Roberts has the gift of gab and knows how to tug the heartstrings like a violin maestro.
Local Hero
This story just made me want to cuddle up in front of a log fire with hot chocolate and some scrumptious cookies to go with the feel-good vibe.
I like the fact the characters have bagage and aren't picture perfect individuals who sail through life with the greatest of ease. Divorce, broken homes and broken families do exist and it does take a long time for the hurt to heal. The wounds a person and their children carry with them often harden them towards any new individuals that come into their life. This story is about breaking down those walls.
I was slightly surprised at the ease with which Hester let her son attach himself to a complete stranger and yet reared with reluctance at the thought of doing so herself with the exact same person. Then again the story was written in the 80s in a time when not every stranger was considered a danger.
A Will and a Way
What is better than a little old russian matchmaker? A well meaning quirky dead uncle matchmaker of course. Who better than to scheme and devise a way to ensure the two people he loved the most end up as a couple. Just a few problems with the execution though. First of all they don't really like each other and secondly the gazillions of cash they just inherited has painted a big fat bullseye on their backs.
Overall I would recommend this book to readers who are looking for something that may bring a smile to their face and a spurt of warmth to their heart.
I received a copy of this book courtesy of the publisher.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book to review, and I have to say, it's pretty good. It's a re- release of two of Nora Roberts earlier novels: 'Local Hero' and 'Where there's a Will'. In the first novel, comic book writer, Mitch, has a pretty new neighbour, respectable bank manager Hester, who has a young son. Mitch attempts not to fall for her, she attempts to freeze him out, but Fate has other plans! A gentle ride on the rollercoaster of romance, there aren't too many obstacles placed in the way of true love, but it's nicely done. The characters are realistic, the plot chugs along and the hooks are all there to keep the reader just interested enough to keep on reading to the end. There's even a dog! In the second of the pair, Pandora and Michael find themselves thrown together by the machinations of their (deceased) uncle. United by a common cause, which you'll have to read the book to find out more about, they have to put aside their differences and work together to unravel a mystery. Slightly more 'high end' than the first book - he's rich and so is she - it is still a fun read, the characters slightly less believable, but cracking plot and enough gentle thrills to keep you interested. There's a dog in this one too. In both stories, Roberts displayed the early talent which makes her stand out head and shoulders over other romance writers, and which she has honed to a fine point as her latest novels (especially those under the name of JD Robb) testify. A heart warming book for the festive season, stock up on wine and chocolate and sit back and enjoy!
