Format: Paperback
This was a fairly pleasant collection of three of Nora Roberts's earlier stories that I acquired from a charity shop, all previously published by Silhouette but ones that I'd never came across before, which all have the similar theme of family and love. Whilst the compendium was a nice enough read to pass the time, it didn't exactly set my world on fire. I have to admit that Roberts has definitely written stronger romances. Still, for a cheap read it wasn't half bad and I do prefer these to her paranormal/fae type of books.

In `Unfinished Business' concert pianist Vanessa returns to her hometown to reunite with her estranged mother and unexpectedly runs into Dr Brady Tucker, the man who broke her heart when she was a teenager. Though I thought this story was sweet, it did seem to be a bit full of small town clichés and stereotypes. Also, talk about holding a grudge! Vanessa immediately punches Brady in the stomach after seeing him again- all because he never turned up to take her to prom (years earlier). It seemed a bit silly to me. Build a bridge and get over it, love- at least let him explain before jumping to conclusions. Also, I find it hard to believe that she could be so moulded by her father all her life- and never stand up to him as an adult. All in all, I'd rate this story 2.5/5 because Vanessa is so inherently unlikeable.

`Island of Flowers' finds Laine reconnecting with a father she barely knows and immediately being intrigued by his business partner who seems to have some serious misconceptions about her. This really reminded me of the `Mills and Boon' type stories of old- with lots of misunderstandings, squabbles, innocent female lead and whatnot.

This is three books in one which is always good value and a good holiday read.All the books are individually themed and varied so you do feel that you have three seperate books and not just one continuous read.More Mills and Boon that the Thriller books that Nora Roberts is famous for but very enjoyable tune out reads .

I love Nora Roberts books, this book has 3 stories. The first story I preferred out of the 3 of them. The problem I found quite weird was the romances in the book, the first story I could understand the romance, but in the second and third story, the romances are a bit far fetched

"Unfinished Business"

Time spent reading Nora Roberts is never wasted, and this book is no exception. She is a brilliant writer of popular fiction: her descriptions are vivid, characters well-rounded, emotional values true. It's popular fiction, there's a bit of schmaltz and that's what you read her for.

This one is the story of a concert pianist returning to her home town after touring for twelve years with her father. Now she wants to get to know her estranged mother.

Cleverly, Roberts does not go into huge detail about the revenge Vanessa's father took on her mother, but lets it emerge, often without discussion just letting it stand in the reader's attention to be judged. This is very satisfactory as it allows you to think over what may have been the motivation.

Vanessa is a neat heroine because much of what we see of her is through others' eyes. What is detailed is her physical suffering, gradually replaced by emotional discovery.

Brady is a classic hero for this type of novel: tearaway turned into doctor and, of course, fit. He's capable of humour, but has flashes of temper.

Roberts always keeps her casts fairly small in stories like this so the reader can focus and become intimate with each of them. Peripheral characters are kept to those who will fill out the scene and atmosphere. This means the reader can sink intimately into the world that she writes about. Just as it should be.

"Island of Flowers"

This is one of Nora Roberts' early books and while it is another example of her excellent storytelling, its gender issues remain firmly in the early eighties.

Rugged, rough hero and beautiful, virginal heroine.
