A disappointment....

I usually like everything I read by Nora Roberts, but this book was a bit of a disappointment. The main character(Gwen came off as very immature and churlish, and she seemed incredibly stupid for acting on an assumption that could have been easily clarified. Since she and Luke had this explosive chemistry between them, how hard would it have been for her to just ask if he had been involved with her mother? Since this is the premise of the entire book, I found myself rolling my eyes several times over the sheer lunacy of it all. And the fact that Gwen blamed Luke for everything rather than taking any responsibility for her own actions was just ridiculous.

The narrator did a good job with the southern accents, but that only made Gwen's southern belle character even more annoying. Not Nora's best work.

NR fan

I have enjoyed many, many of NR's books. I didn't enjoy this one as much but it is an okay read. Could have just been timing for me. I will always purchase her books and give'em a try because she writes stories I enjoy.
