I must admit to having being spoilt by Ms.Roberts excellent recent books - Three Fates and Chesapeake Blue to name two. Here I feel that the standard has dropped somewhat - that's not to say it was'nt good - it just was'nt great and that is what I've come to expect from this consistently talented author.
The book had too many plotlines going on all at once for me - there was Callie the archeologist on an exciting dig, meeting up with ex-hubby Jake on the site, finding out she was adopted, dealing with her adoptive parents who had never told her this news, meeting her birth mother and her brother, brothers susequent relationship with the lawyer Callie hires to find out her past - she was stolen and sold as a black market baby - and then the murders start.......... I'm exhausted just trying to remember it all.
As a result of all this, the characters personalities were under-developed and it was harder to get "into" the storyline, the supporting players who normally provide good back-drop and suspects for all the murder and mayhem barely left an impression and so when the "final curtain" came it was all a bit anti-climatic....
Having said all that, it did hold the interest to the end and if it were a first novel by anyone else it would be a 5 star..... it's just not vintage Nora.

Format: Hardcover
When a worker at an Antietam Creek construction site uncovered a five thousand-year-old human skull, construction work stopped and experts were called in. Dr. Callie Dunbrook was the archaeologist assigned to head a team and work the site. The only big problem to her was that she was forced to work with her irritating, but irresistible, ex-husband, Jake.
Later, Callie was approached by a woman that claimed Callie was the daughter someone had kidnapped from her long ago. Callie's world would change drastically. And the more Callie dug for the truth about her past, the more danger surrounded everyone she cared for!
***** A well written novel that overflows with awesome main and secondary characters. Be warned that there are some spicy hot love scenes mixed in with this tale of thrills, mystery, danger, and romance. An excellent story by one of the best authors of today! *****

The heroine, Callie, is a strong independent woman, and an amazing archaeological find throws her together with her 'ex'-husband, Jake. Nora Roberts weaves her story around these two individuals surrounding them with murder, mystery and romance. For someone who is lucky enough to have never been personally affected by a child kidnapping it was a real eye opener. The whole situation is dealt with extremely well allowing the reader to experience the range of emotions, from the birth family to the adopted family and of course the 'child' in the middle. If this is the first Nora Roberts book you read, I don't feel this book is quite the same as her other books which tend to be more involved with Irish legends.

I think this is a great new Nora Roberts romantic suspense title. I loved the heroine gradually uncovering the hidden secrets in her family background. And the well-researched archaelogical setting really interesting and was a first from Nora, I thought. This is a carefully plotted story with Nora's usual good strong characters and I enjoyed it a lot. I felt it covered new ground. But usually Nora's new novels do that anyway. Highly recommended and an exciting and romantic read.

What a fabulous read! I could hardly put it down. As usual, Nora Roberts did not disappoint me one bit. What a brilliant film it would make. I could imagine Joan Collins playing the part of Eve. It has everything. Romance, a bit of a thriller. Really good characters. Come on someone - make the film...Please...

Sexy , but subtle rather than brutally explicit. Loving rather than just shockingly graphic. I couldn't put it down and became difficult to live with here at home. This was my first Nora Robert book and am delighted to find there are so many more - yippee.

Many Roberts books are boring in my view but there are a handful with strong vivid characters who you really enjoy and empathise with, that I retread. Birthright is one of the few, interesting storyline, links to archaeology which I find fascinating. Some great side characters too and a nice love story. However the central thread is a good thriller and this is when Nora Roberts books improve on formulaic romances. Highly recommend

I have never read a book by this author before but she was recommended by a friend, I enjoyed this book, but after borrowing another by the same author "Chasing Fire" I found that this time it did not hold my attention so I'm not sure if I will try any more books by this author perhaps the books she writes under J D Robb may be more to my taste.
