This is a romantic suspense novel with the emphasis very much on the romance (it doesn't pay to consider the suspense/crime elements too closely as there are some plot holes and a lot is left vague). It centres on Eli, who has been suspected of killing his wife, and Abra, who runs a few local businesses including yoga classes and massage. The two of them come together as they investigate who killed Eli's wife, who is trying to kill them now and what happened to a treasure held by the family in the past. As is usual with this author's books it is well written and plotted and has some witty dialogue and a feel-good ending. If you like this sort of a book (and I do) then you will find it enjoyable enough and certainly better than many other books in the genre. Compared with many romantic suspense novels on the market this earns its fours stars.

If, however, you compare this novel with other Nora Roberts books you may find yourself disappointed and wanting to reconsider the rating. This author has used most of the elements in this book before (sometimes many times before)and I really wanted her to do something different in this novel - alas, it is more of the same. The love story between Eli and Abra is predictable and inevitable. Abra is a typical Roberts heroine in that she is independent, self-employed and hard working. Eli is rich (at least one person in each Roberts couple usually is) and a writer. There is a close village community, a supportive family, wacky best friends and a charming dog - we have seen all these before. The sub-plot about the lost treasure has also been used before several times by the author (and is really a bit cheesy in my opinion).

I have bought and read all Nora Roberts books, I cannot get enough of them, I waited with anticipation for this book, and I have to say I was a little bit disappointed with it. Bit weak and didnt really hold my interest, normally I cant put Nora Roberts books down, but I found this a little bit dull. Will look forward to the next though.

I started to read this book as it was an add on to one of Nora Robert’s I had just finished. It seemed all right, another light romance for holiday reading. I was sadly mistaken. If you like ‘whodunnits’ then I am certain you will like this book. I like my romance and ‘whodunnits’ to be separate. If I want a murder mystery I will read Agatha Christie, if I want romance I read Nora Roberts, or I used to years ago. I hadn’t realised Ms Roberts also writes detective novels with romance attached, my mistake. I was at chapter 6 when I realised, skipped to the last page and deleted it from my kindle. I could care less who murdered the hero’s adulterous wife.

I am sure if it is the kind of story you want then it would be a good read. Personally, I feel a little duped but as they say ‘buyer beware’. I should have read the synopsis instead of believing it was going to be a book in the same vein as the one it was attached to and bought it after the ‘teaser’. It did mention something about a murder in the 'teaser' but I thought that was history, not, the story.

The star rating is my personal disappointment. As I said, if you like murder mysteries coupled with your romance then I am certain you might give it more.

Nora Nora Nora Im just shy of actual disappointment I read all of the books but this is just not up to the usual standard.The plot is weak the two love interests are weak and boring .To be honest the woman at the start of the story is weird and a cross between a door mat and a female Ghandi.SO TICKED OFF I BOUGHT THIS AND DIDN T WAIT FOR THE PRICE TO DROP

My friend Sheila & I have started our own little book club( just the two of us )& it was my turn to choose the next book so I started browsing & came across this one & I'm sorry to say that because I'd only pick up the reading bug again the beginning of this year I haven't heard of this author & neither had Sheila but we thought lets give it a go well..........I'm glad we did as I couldn't put the book down( I started reading it on a Sunday morning & by the Thursday I had sadly finished it ) it's brilliant as throughout the story you have tragedy, humour, love & passion, mystery, suspense etc., I would definitely recommend & so would Sheila( she a avid Martina Cole fan )also Nora Roberts is now one of my favourite authors

When I read about this novel prior to its publication I decided that I was not so keen on the story as such. I stand corrected! It actually reminded me a lot of NR's 'Sanctuary' (which is on the list of my favourite NR novels), and ended up exceeding my expectations by far. Eli is the kind of protagonist that you cannot help identifying with, even if his life story is far from ordinary. His struggles are easy to relate to, and anyone who has ever been in the position where uncertainty rules one's day-to-day life (for whatever reason) will be able to relate to what he is going through. Yes, he is from a wealthy, privileged background and has a loving family, but his fears work as powerful reminders of the misfortunes that can befall every single one of us.
Although, Abra's character is not as strongly developed as Eli's and I had trouble suspending my disbelief in regards to her background, there is something edgy about her that I really liked. She has made mistakes and is not afraid to change direction in life in the most radical of ways.
It is true that this novel is heavier on the romance than some of NR's other romantic suspense novels, but this is far from off-putting in this instance. There is something refreshing and very uplifting about this novel, although, it begins as a story of loss and includes elements of a murder mystery.
