Product Description
The #1 New York Times-bestselling author presents a riveting novel where a canine search and rescue volunteer fights danger and finds love in the Pacific Northwest wilderness.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life-a quaint house on an island off Seattle's coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescues. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare...

Several years ago, Fiona was the only survivor of the Red Scarf serial killer, who shot and killed Fiona's cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona found the peace and solitude she needed to rebuild her life. But all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help. He's the reluctant owner of an out-of-control puppy, foisted upon him by his mother. Jaws has eaten through Simon's house, and he's at his wit's end.

To Fiona, Jaws is nothing she can't handle. Simon, however, is another matter. A newcomer to Orcas, he's a rugged and in-tensely private artist, known for the exquisite furniture he creates from wood. Simon never wanted a puppy-and he most definitely doesn't want a woman. Besides, the lanky redhead is not his type. But tell that to his hormones.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona's life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SMIDGE
I am one of the fortunate few have read NORA ROBERTS from her very first book right through to this one....And I have to say she continues to deliver some of the best dialogue between characters that I've ever read.
Maybe it becomes a little too deep for some people who want a little more playtime and action. (I don't know) For me ...it works!
This book was all about a seriously strong woman who got that way because of a life threatening experience with a serial killer when she was younger and a lot less experienced. She loses her police officer fiance and his canine partner and helps stop a killer and put him in prison. Instead of allowing these things to cripple her she then heals and from those ashes gains a sensitivity into how to get people and animals to work well with one another.
I was intrigued by the tough aggressiveness of the characters and how Nora made a reluctant relationship work! The rescue training helped me relate better with two people who are in no way easy to predict and are what most strong/alpha types have to be. It allowed the author to show pieces of their character that could not be seen otherwise.
This was not a book about training search and rescue dogs ONLY. It is a story about a woman who has a gift for training dogs to be life savers and can also use that training to understand and deal with a very intense and hard to please man.
Its about a woman who is once again in danger of a killer and how she deals with that reality.
This book is able to impress upon women how strong they can be if only they try and not be victims in the face of everpresent danger.
I loved this book...felt happy about the end and can't wait to read another new NORA ROBERTS novel!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Nora Roberts is losing me
I thought this book would be a fun read because I am raising a service dog.I don't know diddly about search and rescue, but I know a lot about training a dog.Kinda back-fired though because I found myself skipping the lengthy training episodes; while fairly accurate, it wasn't new to me.I thought the female character was well developed and the male was suitably hunky and I liked that he was grouchy and rude, but they were both kinda boring.Even the steamy parts left me short.One scene, set on a pedestal dining table, left me worrying that the table-top would never be stable again rather than focusing on the developing romance.I once commented that I like Nora Roberts because her characters lead real lives and feel like I could step in their shoes, unlike many jet-setting, rich, skinny and beautiful romance novel leads.Now I feel like Ms. Roberts has carried her "normal" characters a bit too far.I could have easily been Fiona but, and this is where the increasingly unexciting plot lines are making me less of a fan, why on earth would I want to be?With the notable exception that no one is trying to kill me (thank you Lord), my life is exceedingly routine and hardly worth writing about.Hmmm, kinda like Fiona.

4-0 out of 5 stars Would have given this 5 stars but . . .
it had some problems.I really enjoyed the book and as I released my tight grasp on the book at midnight last night I felt a little let down by the ending.Given that so much attention had been given to the dogs and the search and rescue scenes throughout the book,I would have expected them to have been more involved in the take down.This book could have had a much better ending that way.I thought the dog training was interesting and made me want to buy a dog.Simon wasn't your usual perfect guy and the plot, serial killers and interaction among the characters were all interesting and believable. It would be interesting to read a sequel to this book to learn how the other friends and relatives fare and to see if Fiona and Simon are still together in a year from now.

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring book
I like Nora Roberts, but this book is not worth reading..I had a very hard time making it through it. I kept reading in hopes it would get better no such luck. Unless you want to know how to train dogs , you may want to skip this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Read
This was one of the best books I've read in months - I wanted to read it every moment, thought about it when I couldn't be reading, and have started it again because I was so sad to see it end.

I admit, I'm a sucker for dogs, so that lured me in to start with. But it was the characters and solid plot that kept me turning pages. I don't know how Ms. Roberts does it, but her characters typically feel so real to me - with plenty of flaws, lots of attitude and more heart than any folks should have. The hero of The Search, Simon, is so far from perfect it's humorous. He's irritable, grouchy, intolerant of fools. He seldom says anything just plain nice, and couches any flattery with plenty of insult. That makes him sound annoying, but he's not. He's just a normal guy who's used to being on his own, so when you throw in a new puppy and a sexy dog trainer who isn't his type, he's crankier than usual.

Fiona, owner of three search and rescue dogs, is a strong woman - almost TOO strong. She's the sole survivor of a serial killer, a man who also killed her fiancé and his K9 companion. Since that time, she's made every effort to take care of herself, which occasionally leads her to exclude those who love her from things that are important in her life. This causes trouble between her and Simon as things begin to grow between them, especially when copycat murders start showing up and Fiona is directly threatened.

Though this is a mystery/suspense novel, there are so many fun moments that it keeps it from being an adrenaline-pumping, can't-breathe-for-the-worry kind of book. The suspense tends to linger in the background for the most part, with the romance taking the forefront along with Fiona's search and rescues assignments. I loved watching Simon with his puppy, Jaws, as they found their way together with Fiona's help. I thoroughly enjoyed observing Simon and Fiona discover they like each other, much to the surprise of both of them. Neither wants a relationship, and they aren't each other's type in any way. Yet... the attraction is there, as well as the enjoyment in mutual time spent together.

I can't say enough good things about the dog aspect of this story either. Though non-dog lovers and owners will assuredly enjoy this book, those of us who do enjoy canine companionship will find this book even more enjoyable. I smiled, laughed, and even occasionally snorted at the troubles Jaws got into. He's such a classic puppy, a loveable trouble-maker, I couldn't help but be charmed (and also be glad my four-footed family members are all well past that stage).

The love story is delightful as well, full of as many problems as sweet moments and with such a perfect ending that my heart couldn't help but sigh. Add in a memorable and delightful cast of secondary characters, and what you have is a favorite of Nora Roberts' books to date. This will be a novel that I read until it falls apart at which point I'll buy another copy and start all over again. I'd be surprised if you didn't feel the same.

Margo Sullivan had everything she could ask for. The daughter of the Templetons' stern housekeeper, she was treated like a member of the family. But money could not buy the thing she craved most-her mother's acceptance...Amazon.com Review
Set in Monterey, California, this first novel in the Dream trilogy features Margo Sullivan, the feisty and beautiful daughter of a wealthy family's housekeeper. She's been offered the same privileges as the Templeton children, but Margo resents handouts. She feels she has much to prove to herself, her surrogate family, and her mother. Margo dreams big--she wants wealth, fame, and success--but she doesn't want anyone else's help. Her plan is to go as far away from home as possible, so she starts with Hollywood and then moves on to Europe, where she finds fame as a supermodel. But when her world comes crashing down around her, Margo discovers that reaching out for help--especially to your family--can be just as challenging and rewarding as solving your problems on your own. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Heroine annoyed me
I loved this book, except for Margo. I think the other characters were great and couldn't wait to get to their books in the trilogy. If you are on the fence about reading the other two books in the trilogy after reading this one, don't be, they are worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A thought provoking start to a new trilogy
I am a big fan of Nora Roberts, especially her trilogies - there's something utterly delicious about knowing that when you finish one book, there's another one ready for you. I was a little unsure of how I would enjoy this book. Like many of the reviewers, I wondered if I would ever warm to Margo. She probably encapsulates everything most women dislike about gorgeous model types, however as I stayed with the story, I found that Margo did get into my heart. Yes, she's brash, cocky and totally beautiful but when you get past her facade, to me she is a woman that I would be proud to call a friend.
I loved her spats with Josh and her vulnerability at times got to to me. Her desire to be someone, to be a success because she thinks it's the only way the people around her will really think anything of her reminds me of a lot of people and I enjoyed the ride I took with Margo. She made me laugh out loud at times and I loved her for this. (I don't normally laugh out loud when I'm reading!)
A book that you will enjoy and be sorry to put down.

1-0 out of 5 stars domestic violence is so sexy
I'm not familiar with the Romance genre.I thought I'd try something new, recognized Roberts' name from the bestseller lists, and bought this thing. Mistake. I only got to page 256, so read my review with that in mind.

This book features: poor writing (unsignalled point of view shifts happen multiple times), shallow and unlikeable characters with little or no actual emotional attachment to one another, and a control freak hero who constantly demeans and belittles the heroine.During arguments he also grabs her, slings her around like a caveman, topples her into a full bathtub and holds her head under the water.

But its not violence because he looooves her?It's okay because it just shows how passionate and out of control he is over her?Or maybe its okay because he's being playful.As long as he doesn't *intend* to hurt her that makes it all right, right?Seriously, I cannot imagine in what world anyone would find this behavior romantic.It certainly isn't legal.

Anyway, I threw the book in the trash.

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable
Very easy read. I have never read nora roberts but this book will keep me coming back for more. It is very seductive and has alot of very sensual scenes in the book. I really enjoyed it.

Product Description
New Love takes the cake in the third novel in Nora Roberts's new Bride Quartet-in a stunning French flap edition

Wedding baker Laurel McBane is surrounded by romance working at Vows wedding planning company with her best friends Parker, Emma, and Mac. But she's too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that their clients seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker's older brother Delaney, on whom she's had a mega-crush since childhood.

But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her-or so she thinks. When Laurel's quicksilver moods get the better of her-leading to an angry, hot, all-together mind-blowing kiss with Del-she'll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great read!!!
Love the entire series so far and can't wait for book 4!!! Sure some of the characters might seem similar from her other books but can you blame her? She has found a formula and it works and I don't mind thinking some characters are like others as some people in real life are alike as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful compliment to the other two!
I enjoy Nora's ability to create characters that are a family..even when they are not technically related.. She has a way of making stories, and lifelong friendships blend as one..

Also with each couple they have there own way of handling things..I never feel like the same scenario is being repeated over and over again..It always feels like a natural progression of that couples relationship..

Nora in my opinion is one of the best women writers in this genre..I will read anything she puts out and I am always thrilled with the result and the amazing characters she introduces me too..Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3)

So excited for Book Four!!!Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet)

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased.
Book arrived in just a couple of days.In better condition than anticipated.Will order from this seller again, for sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lovely
The third book in the bride quartet and it is as good a story as the first and the second.I just wish I could see the lovely cakes that Laurel makes in this book.This is also a wonderful romance between the two characters of Laurel and Del.I am still waiting for the fourth book in this series to come out.I know it will be as great as the firtst three books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Ever Quartet
Nora Roberts is a Past Master at ongoing stories and this is the absolute best ever quartet she has written. That is saying a great deal because she has others that are wonderful too. Just something about this quartet - the characters are so very real-to-life, so many humorous moments, even the drama is perfectly balanced, never overdone - right on. I know people just like these people and came to care about them as though they were real! What a read - can't wait for the next series. ... Read more

Love blooms in the second novel in Nora Roberts's celebrated Bride Quartet series.

As little girls MacKensie, Emma, Laurel, and Parker spent hours acting out their perfect make believe "I do" moments. Years later their fantasies become reality when they start their own wedding planning company to make every woman's dream day come true. With perfect flowers, delicious desserts, and joyful moments captured on film, Nora Roberts's Bride Quartet shares each woman's emotionally magical journey to romance.

In Bed of Roses, florist Emma Grant is finding career success with her friends at Vows wedding planning company, and her love life appears to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn't found Mr. Right. And the last place she's looking is right under her nose.

But that's just where Jack Cooke is. He's so close to the women of Vows that he's practically family, but the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. When Emma returns his passion—kiss for blistering kiss—they must trust in their history…and in their hearts.

I read Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb books all the time and I will have to say that Vision in White is a great book, it has to do with friendship, love, and family, mixed with a little business and marriage. I think that you would enjoy reading this book. And of course don't forget the second book Bed of Roses.

4-0 out of 5 stars I cried at the end
Ok, it's obvious we all have different opinions and some may love this or this type of book and others will hate it.The Bride Quartet are the first books of Nora Roberts that I have read.Predictable?Yes, Romantic? Yes. Sappy?Possibly.Hey, I wanted "light, fun, romantic, girl gets the guy" book and that was delivered.So far out of the 3 books I've read in this series, I liked this one the best and yes, I really did cry at the end.(I'm the type of woman that will cry at the end of 50 First Dates every time I see it too!)I think I cried because of the guy character in this one.You get in his head more and actually see what he's feeling - not like that happens in real life! Very good book.Worth the time and money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story
I truly enjoy Nora Roberts style of writing.This is just one of the books in a quartet about four childhood friends that went into the wedding business together.As always it is well written and tells a love story of one of the friends (in this case it's Emmaline who handles all of the florals for Vows which is the name of their business).I have read three of this series and am waiting for the fourth to be delivered.I can hardly wait to read the last one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Let's be truthful: it's long and it's boring..
Common, people let's be truthful. Unless you're a florist this book is a terrible drag. Every minuscule detail of (here I have to pause to search for the heroins' name because, really I already forgot it) Emma's work is discussed until you can't stand it anymore, than she whines, debates with her boring friends on having a cookie, exercises and has sex. Although this doesn't sound like a bad life (you go Emma!) reading about it is a real bore. This is my first Nora Roberts and I am amazed at the lack of.. anything in this book (the writing was good, don't misunderstand me! Very professional, well edited and it left me cold). No true romance, no interesting conversations.. Just two uninteresting people with nothing to say to each other. And the worst: just past the middle of the story I started to dislike flowers.. (Flower overdose!) You tell me, should I buy another book by Nora Roberts? I want to say no, but this might be a fluke. The whole world seems to like her books..?! Am I missing something? ...

New York Times
bestselling author Nora Roberts deftly blends the perfect formula of romance and suspense in this addictively compelling novel of a woman whose career, marriage, and very life may depend on her never learning the truth about her past. . . .

Emma McAvoy may have grown up in the limelight, but some secrets are hidden in a darkness no light can reach. Now on the verge of a successful career, and having fallen in love with the man of her dreams, Emma is looking to the future. Yet it’s the past that is about to catch her from behind.

For Emma, her childhood had been almost like a rags-to-riches fairy tale—until the tragic night that changed her family forever. But what Emma thinks she knows about that terrible night and the man she’s about to marry is only half the truth. The other half is locked away in the last place she’d ever think to look: her own memories. It’s a mystery a handsome and relentlessly driven homicide detective needs to solve in a case that’s haunted him for years . . . and a secret someone will kill to keep. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
I totally enjoyed this book.It was hard to put down in between reading times.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very little romance
I would have liked to see more of Michael and Emma together. For the majority of the book Emma was with Drew (absolutely no romance there) or she was nowhere near Michael. I did get that is was suppose to be endearing that Michael's feelings for her never waned over the years, but the distance did not make for a great romance. By the time that they finally spent quality time together and were in a quasi relationship the book was almost over. Dissapointing, because Michael was one of Nora's few male leads that wasn't so standoffish with the female yet he did not get to be near her.

The book was not lacking in suspense however. It did have excessive drug use, but I guess that what comes with the rock star story.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a really great book
I have been a Nora Roberts fan for a long time and I really loved this book. The reader feels like they are part of the McAvoy family and know all of their inner secrets.Emma is a fabulous character and the book was very hard to put down.

5-0 out of 5 stars fabulous book
I read this book several years ago, but it is 1 of my all time favorites.Great Read!I highly recommened Public Secrets.

5-0 out of 5 stars A real page turner
I've read a number of Nora Robert's books and this was my favorite. The characters were well-developed and believable, especially Emma McAvoy and her rock-star father. Nora portrayed her characters in "Public Secrets" very realistically. She was not afraid to show their weaknesses. The murder of Emma's beloved baby brother was a tear-jerker and made me cry. I did figure outthe identity of one of her brother's murderers halfway through but it wasn't obvious like in some of Nora Robert's other books. The second murderer was a shock. I love how NR adds a touch of mystery and suspense to all her stories--some better than others. The romance in this book was exciting and sexy, not raunchy like in other romance books. I read this book in 2 days and did not want to put it down. ... Read more

A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac's type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dreamy
This is the first series of Nora Roberts books I have had pleasure to read. I have read the full series and waiting for the last to release next week...and cant wait. The story lines are predictable and you can see after book one how each character's lives will play out however you just enjoy reading how it happens, the details and enjoy the rush of falling along with them. The series leaves you saying "Gah, I WANT that too".

5-0 out of 5 stars Imaginatively Romantic
Words can not describe the way Nora Roberts futs fantasies to paper. Everone dreams of their ideal mate, running into him/her in a romatic, yet aloof way, and then finding out that they are "the one." That is exactly what Roberts does in the Bride Quartet. She mixes fantasy with the ideal reality that we would all like to have. These books let the imagination run wild and that, my friends, is the key to a great book. You will imagine every romantic moment along with every frustrating one. This is a non-stop read; one for not only the romantic, but also the imaginative. Five Stars Nora and can't wait for Book 4: Happy Ever After!

Vision In White is the first in the Bride Quartet series from Nora Roberts, and it does not disapoint.I truly love the writng style of this author.This story is about one of four childhood friends that become business partners in the wedding industry when they grow up.Mackensie is the wedding photographer of the group and is the first of the girls to find the love of her life and become engaged.The story is endearing and a great read.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic Nora Roberts tale
Once again, Nora Roberts does not disappoint with her new series, "The Bride Quartet". What readers love about Nora Roberts is that very few of her stories stand alone. Trilogies and series are what makes readers turn to Nora Roberts again and again. This latest series, beginning with the book "Vision in White" is a classic Nora Roberts tale about a tight-knit group of women, who are as close as sisters, that work together and lean on each other to make their dreams reality. The series takes us through the lives of Mac, Laurel, Emma and Parker, who together have started an all-inclusive wedding company called Vows. In this installment of "The Bride Quartet", photographer Mackensie Elliot goes on a journey to find her "Mr. Right", but she never thought he would come in the form of the quiet and nerdy English teacher Carter Maguire. As sparks fly, Mac finds herself having to overcome her fear of love as she becomes powerless to the charming Carter. This book is a refreshing break from the magical worlds of Nora Roberts previous trilogies with heart warming stories that any woman can relate to. ... Read more

Little does he know that what he sees in his dreams isn't just fantasies; his long lost love from another life, Bryna, is calling for him. He tries to be normal and shut her out, but eventually, destiny has its way and he finds himself travelling to Ireland on a vacation trip. Once there, he is stuck in the middle of an old powerstruggle between good and evil, and whether he likes it or not, his life has just changed forever.

I like the story, and I like the way the story is told. When reading, I can almost hear Bryna's Irish accent, smell the countryside, see her hair, and feel the cold morning mists. I also liked the tempo; stories like this when things keep happening capture my attention and my imagination, and I keep on reading. There's an appealing balance between romance and action.

On the downside, I didn't realize how short the book was. I expected a full length novel, but it's not. It feels like there might have been more to say on the matter, and I felt a little cheated when I turned the last page and realized that yes, this was it, the book was really over.

2-0 out of 5 stars details
I did not know it at the time (& Amazon nor seller told me) but this is a little bitty book. I am talking maybe 60 pages if that.I read (I say read anyway) this several years ago in a compilation book with 3 other authors.It's not 1 of Nora Robert's best. In fact it may be her worst in my opinion.My advice?Order another Nora Roberts book unless you just want to make your Roberts library complete!

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring Read
Sorry folks, but this short story is pretty boring. Guess that's why it's a short story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I would expect
A must read - but read the other 2 first. This Trilogy is great one and Nora Roberts knows how to keep your interest

5-0 out of 5 stars The best one out of the three in this series!
You can usually predict that the third one is the best but this one was especially wonderful because there are a lot of single moms out there that the dads just don't do what you expected of them as fathers...I'm one of them.Although like in my story this story has a knight in shining armor to take charge with Laura and her darling daughters!!!Perfect ending to this series!

5-0 out of 5 stars Trilogy of Dreams....
I can't seem to find the right words to express my love for the "Dream" trilogy, so I'll just say if you don't read it you're doing yourself a great injustice. I never thought I would find another series like Nora's "Born In" trilogy, but I did, and I have to say that I enjoyed this one more. I'm once again so very sad that I will never be able to read these books again for the very first time. Keep dreaming!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
I absolutely loved all three books of the Dream Trilogy! All in all, I was sorry when the last book came to an end. I felt like Margo, Kate, and Laura were my friends and I hated to leave them. I would have liked to have read a fourth book incorporating Laura and Michael's marriage and the arrival of their children; Tommy and Susie's story; and more of Annie's story.

When an author writes a story that makes you want more, you can say that he/she is a great success. Needless to say, Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors.

Product Description
New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts serves up a sizzling novel of explosive suspense and sensual romance as the search for a murderer ignites passion between a beautiful psychiatrist and the sexy, brooding detective determined to crack the case.
In the unbearable heat of another sultry Washington, D.C., summer, a serial killer is on the loose. Dr. Tess Court, one of the capital’s most successful psychiatrists, wants nothing to do with the case—until the police convince her to lend a hand to the lead investigator, legendary ladies’ man Detective Ben Paris.

Scarred by his family’s history, Ben has even less use for shrinks than Tess has for him—but the forces of animal magnetism and a shared desire to catch the demented criminal known as “The Priest” inexorably erode the walls they’ve built. They’re opposites in so many ways, yet that seems only to fan the flames of attraction for which danger has supplied the spark. To stop a killer who thinks he can absolve sins through murder, Ben will need every ounce of psychological insight Tess can offer him. And she’ll need the help of a lawman willing to stare fear in the face if she’s going to avoid becoming the madman’s next victim.Amazon.com Review
For those of you who can't get enough Nora Roberts, Roberts has dusted off this romance thriller from the early '80s, slapped a new cover on it, and republished it. After so many years, Sacred Sins may feel a bit musty, but those readers just looking for a good time won't mind some outdated attitudes or references when the timeless suspense and romance keep them flipping the pages.

With the talents that later led her to create her J.D. Robb line of In Death romance thrillers, Roberts uses an "opposites attract" theory of appeal between her lovers and firmly places her heroine in the killer's sights. Dr. Tess Court is a successful psychiatrist who is guilted by her senator grandfather into advising on a serial murder case. Detective Ben Paris hasn't much respect for shrinks after his brother's unsuccessful treatment for post-war depression. However, forces align to put these two together and things turn hot and heavy. As they work to uncover the murderer's motives, Tess and Ben realize that she is both the killer's next likely victim and his best hope for a savior.

Tess has all the spunk and determination of a typical Roberts heroine with a great wardrobe and elegant tastes to boot. Though the killer's motivations remain somewhat simple, he is convincingly creepy, and this thriller will satisfy loyal fans and new readers alike. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Love Nora Roberts books
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.It arrived promptly and was in excellent condition.

2-0 out of 5 stars An earlier work, not Roberts' best; unsatisfying suspense and romance
More like 1 1/2 stars.This is one of Roberts' earlier works, and I must admit I just wasn't impressed with it.I just didn't feel a connection with the characters as I usually do in Roberts' books, and the romance didn't really ring true to me.I did find the philosophical question of rehabilitation versus restitution interesting to explore through a psychiatrist versus cop viewpoint, and the story with Joey was compelling and interesting.However, I just did not feel any chemistry between Tess and Ben, and the suspense wasn't really that suspenseful, even when Tess confronts the killer.Lastly, whether this is fair or not, I've been reading a lot of Roberts' earlier works and her tendency to have one or the other of the main characters' smoke has been distracting and annoying me.Hardcore Roberts' fans may enjoy borrowing it, but otherwise Roberts' and other authors have far better fare out there and it is definitely not worth buying.I recommend Roberts' Blue Smoke or the O'Hurley series (Born O'Hurley (The Last Honest Woman / Dance to the Piper)) and O'Hurley's Return: Skin DeepWithout A Trace (The O'hurleys)) for the best of Nora Roberts.

2-0 out of 5 stars Could Not Get Into It
I did not make it very far into this novel without giving up. I could not get into the psycho killer priest character, and he seemed to be driving the plot. Also the repeated murders of solitary women walking around the city at night did not make me want to keep reading.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Sins
This novel may not be the quality of Roberts' newer work, but it delivers a satisfying romance and a surprise ending. It took me a few chapters to really feel riveted by the story, but I liked some of the characters right away.

This is one a die-hard Nora fan would want on her shelf.

1-0 out of 5 stars A little simple
This Nora is a little simple. Once you have read some of her novels/trilogies where she has so much detail, these stories seem like Harlequin Romances.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Robert's best
I usually love Nora Robert's books.However, I feel that this is not one of her best efforts.The stories were on the short side, with not enought character development to feel the usual connection...as a romance, great!...as a Nora Robert's romance, so-so.

4-0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Romantic Fantasy
This book contains three really enchanting romantic tales from Ireland.Each delves into a fun paranormal world, but in the traditon of Fantasy, the characters are believable yet extraordinary.

Nora Roberts paints a beautiful portrait of Ireland with her vivid description of the scenery, cottages, and castles.

The only thing I didn't like was the phrase that appeared more than 4 times, "he (or she) angled his head". Don't know why, but that phrase bugged me.

I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a fun Romance/Fantasy.I enjoyed it.

Product Description

New York Times
bestselling author Nora Roberts delivers a romantic thriller that will keep readers guessing and pages turning—the story of a woman who wants one thing most of all…until she meets a man who wants her more.

In the stratosphere of A-list celebrities, Adrianne was an A-plus. Beautiful, wealthy, elegant, she lived the kind of glamorous life that most could only envy—since they didn’t know the private tragedy and the dangerous truth. For her pampered-rich-girl pose was just a carefully orchestrated façade that she was ready to drop when the moment came to right the wrongs of the past. And with The Sun and The Moon—a fabled necklace that is within her reach—the moment has come.

At first it seems no more than an accident of fate that brings a man like Philip Chamberlain into her life now of all times. But men like Philip aren’t prone to accidents. Handsome, charming, enigmatic, he seems privy to secrets she’s spent a lifetime concealing. Who is Philip Chamberlain and what does he really want from her? These are questions Adrianne must answer, because to trust the wrong man now could cost too much. ... Read more

It was a very good book.Wasn't something I expected with Addy being the thief.But had a great ending.

As usual Nora Roberts is wonderful weaving her tale of crossing lives and intrigue.I have never been disappointed in one of her books.However, this Kindle edition had so many typos it was tough to not be distracted... I am sad that this was a problem.I've seen this in other Kindle books, but this one was the worst I've seen.I'm not sure what the technology is that brings a Kindle book to be, but please get someone to edit...
Nora Roberts will always be my favorite and this book is no exception...just please proof them sometimes...

1-0 out of 5 stars I have never been disappointed by a Nora Roberts book before.
I bought this with high hopes as I love Nora Roberts.

As soon as I hit the Middle East part of "Jaquir" my heart plummeted. Every cliché was dragged into this, and every misreading of a wonderful part of the world. While it is obvious that she has researched Saudi Arabia I was so disappointed that it was just another "Choose a baddie from the Middle East" option - and even included a 'good hearted but poor mother of the hero" with a cockney accent.

I just could not get past the clichés.

I think it is best to stay with what you know, and not make up theoretical ideas about a culture important to the book, but so synthetic that it raised every hackle.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best so far!
I'm a big fun of N.R.'s work but this book got me!
I loved every part of it!
Could not stop reading it...
When you read too much from one author somewhere in the journey you'll start to identify a pattern in the stories and if you're a "fault finder" you can be tempted to look for something different ... So there I was at the store looking for a new book to read... tried to look for a different author when the cover of True Betrays caught my eyes and I ended up buying it... anyway I loved. This book is different from the other ones I read from N.R. it was a very nice surprise... the romance was there, but also lot's of family stuff that you can identify with, day by day situations, mystery and everything else you want to see in a good book!
Highly recommend it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly Good Reading
Excellent story - a real treat and the typical Nora Roberts novel that I have come to love.If you enjoy race horses, romance, adventure and mystery, True Betrayals is your book.To summarize, 26 year-old Kelsey Byden, recently divorced, and definitely raised with the upper crust, receives a letter from a mother she thought was long dead.Her father, Phillip Byden and Grandmother, Millicent raised her to believe that her mother had died when she was a baby.Her grandmother is a hard-core social climber, expecting no less from her granddaughter.Her dad is an English Professor at Georgetown University, very kind and soft-spoken and very much under the rule of his controlling mother.Kelsey confronts her father as he admits that her mother had asked him to tell their daughter (who was only three years old at the time) she died after she was arrested and sent to prison for killing a man.The story begins to unfold as Kelsey decides to meet her mother, Naomi Chadwick, who owns a thoroughbred horse farm, Three Willows, in Virginia.There, Kelsey connects immediately, heart and soul, creating a new life, one of hard work, long days and many rewards, completely opposite the elite socially correct life her grandmother expects of her.She falls head-over-heels with the horses and begins to understand and become attached to the mother she never even knew existed.Along with this new life comes a new love, rugged Gabe Slater, a man raised on the wrong side of the tracks by a dead-beat father.Gabe is a gambler and has overcome the odds to make something of him and his horse farm, Longshot.The more Kelsey is drawn to the life of a thoroughbred caretaker, the more she is determined to delve into the somewhat vague facts of her mother's trial 23 years ago.Some things come full circle and along with the excitement of the Kentucky Derby and the race at Belmont, all leading to a Triple Crown event for one of Gabe's prize horses, Double or Nothing, comes murder, blackmail and cut throat tactics by men who are willing to do anything to win the golden purse.Connections of murder and greed begin to unravel in both past and present occurrences.True Betrayals is a story that keeps the reader hooked until the very last page.The characters are completely likeable and the storytelling comes with many surprises.It's a book that is hard to put down, leaving the reader sorry to see it come to an end.

4-0 out of 5 stars Avid Reader
Though I enjoyed Nora Roberts' novels, I took a sabbatical from them as too often one novel had too many similarities with the next.Needing escapism reading, I picked up some of her books again.I have found the same issue with some of the trilogies, but True Betrayals stands on its own.Characters are well developed.When trouble occurs in two of the horse farms, the culprit or culprits are not obvious and do not become apparent until revealed later in the book.There is a well developed connection between characters.I think it is one of her better novels and highly recommend it to anyone - especially Roberts fans. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I have somewhat skipped through the last chapters of the book as the mystery part grew boring.
The reader knows early on who the killer is and his reasons and motivation seem ludicrous and uninteresting. There is hardly enough tension to bulid up the suspense or the romance.
I wish I had bought some other book for the week-end.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read
I purchased this book because I'd hiked in the Black Hills and loved the area, and am also a fan of this genre. The weak points in this book are 1) the slow start and 2) the lack of description of the spectacular setting. The strong point is - and there's only one,but it's significant - the second half! It's definitely worth a read, and once readers get past the defining entrada, it's a great story. Well worth the price of a paperback.

5-0 out of 5 stars Childhood Sweethearts
Nora Roberts never fails to provide a wonderful story.She manages to catch your attention for the start and keep you holding on to the very end.Coop and Lil meet as children, fall in love as young adults then follow their own paths that years later do full circle back to each other. Coop and Lil have to face a lunatic to save Lil's life and find their way to the truth about each other.LOVED IT!

Great audio book ! I actuallyread the book first then bought the audio version for my husband. I couldn't resist it and listened to it again myself.

2-0 out of 5 stars Major Disappointment
I've been a huge fan of Nora for a long time, but the last few years her books don't read like Nora wrote them, same goes for her J D Robb books.

I used to sit and start one of her books and get mad if I had to put it down before I finished it. Now, Black Hills has taken me well over two weeks and I'm only at chapter 21. It's boring. The characters aren't interesting; the first ten chapters should have been dumped, it's all backstory referenced to when the real story finally appears. They were so hard to read. It's like having a person sit down and write what they can recall as far back as they can recall. It's a hit and miss memory lane. No one scene is complete, sometimes the scene jumps ahead and your head is swimming with confusion until you learn it's been years. And there are too many people with a point of view. I'm used to her mixing the point of views of the main characters and love it, but geese - what is there, at least six point of views. It causes the story to drag on and on.

I'm sorry, it's not a good read. I expect better of Nora. If she can't write like she used to, she needs to retire.

And the research, or lack of. Moose in the Black Hills? None. I don't recall ever hearing about wolves. Antelope are everywhere, yet there is no mention of them. The whole deal about her little animal reserve sounds like a spin off of Bear Country. We lived there from 1986-1994.

2-0 out of 5 stars Hated the heroine, couldn't care about the hero
Of the three, this book really let me down the most. I just read Nora Roberts' MacKade brothers series, and I loved those characters, so I had a skewed sense of expectations when I started the Quinn brothers' saga. Of the three brothers, Phillip never really caught my interest. Cam and Ethan aside, I could never quite get my mind around the fact that Phillip a) looked like a god; b) had the brains of a genius; c) was an all-around handyman at the family boat-building business. I understand this is fiction, and this is romance fiction, where a hero who doesn't look manly when shirtless is no hero at all, but Phillip's flawlessness really irked me.

And then there Sybill. Heroine of the piece, and entirely detestable. She's supposedly a PhD, too, but she appears to have the brains of a flea. She comforts her own inaction by focusing on her own hurt, but she comes across as self-serving, self-righteous, meddling, and stupid. If she were truly concerned about Seth's welfare, the logical step would be for her to contact social services herself and reveal her relation, rather than going vigilante and attempting to gather evidence on her own. What she had planned to do after her surveillance is unknown, and therefore, her entire motivations seem shaky, at best. Her romance with Phillip seems contrived, especially following the revelation of her relationship to Seth. Phillip's character, too, suffers by his continued selfish pursuit of a physical relationship with her despite all the issues surrounding them and the Quinn family.

As with the other books, the talking-to-the-ghost bit seemed entirely out of place in this context. I'm not against a little but of supernatural happenstance, but in this series, the occurrences seemed contrived and heavy-handed, a mere author's ploy to prod the characters into action and/or reveal necessary bits of plot-centric information. In Phillip's book, the interference of the ghost was taken to a new level with physical interaction between the characters.

As with the previous books, it was Seth who made up for the failings of the other characters. I did enjoy seeing the development of his relationship with the brothers and their wives, although his easy acceptance of the only relative who could have saved him from the misery of his earlier years seemed a bit odd to me, and out of character for a boy too used to bitterness in his short life. The plot developments seemed predictable, because the Mighty Quinn's character could never have been proven to be flawed. Even the ending with the inevitable confrontation between Seth and his mother was a letdown, and turned the focus of the entire trilogy from the relationship of the Quinn brothers to the relationship between Seth and Sybill, and Sybill and Seth's mother. This was a major disappointment after following the Quinns for the entire trilogy, and Sybill only for one book.

I've heard Seth's story is better, so I'll keep my fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book, but not as good as the first two.
I enjoyed this book a lot, but it isn't as good as the first two in my opinion.This book does tie it all together for you though in the end.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT READ
Once again, Nora Roberts has outdone herself. This trilogy is fantastic. I am SO very glad that she added the last book about Seth!!!!! A+++++++++! A must read!

3-0 out of 5 stars As a stand-alone book, it was lacking, but it was good because it finished unresolved issues from the first two books.
The Chesapeake Bay series includes four books which tell a continuing story about a family.Ray and Stella Quinn adopt three troubled boys who came from abusive homes.In the first three books the boys are about 30 years old.They left home, have good jobs and are single.Stella died several years earlier.In the beginning of the first book Ray took in another boy, 10-year-old Seth, who was abused by his mother Gloria.Gloria offered to give legal guardianship to Ray in return for a large sum of money.Before anything was official, Ray died in a car accident.Shortly before he died, he asked his three sons to move back home to take care of Seth.All three men promised they would.They decide to start a boat building business.In the first three books each of the three men meets and falls in love with a woman.The fourth book tells the story of Seth, who is grown, returns home and falls in love.The best parts of the first three books are watching the developing relationships among Seth and the three men and seeing Seth blossom.Each book has a minor amount of fantasy due to some conversations with a ghost.The four books, main characters, and my ratings are:
Sea Swept (Cameron and Anna) 4 stars
Rising Tides (Ethan and Grace) 3 stars
Inner Harbor (Phillip and Sybill) 3 stars
Chesapeake Blue (Seth and Dru) 2.5 stars

STORY BRIEF (Inner Harbor, Book 3):
Phillip's mother was a stripper and prostitute.Phillip survived by stealing, using drugs and sometimes selling himself.At age 13, he was shot in gang crossfire and nearly died.Ray and Stella discovered him in the hospital and took him home.Due to their love and environment, he changed and thrived.He is now a successful advertising executive in Baltimore.He dresses well, drinks fine wines and eats healthy.During his three-day weekends, he handles administrative details, legal issues and paperwork for the brothers' boat building business, as well as some of the sweaty carpentry work.

Dr. Sybill Griffin has made a career out of the study of urban life and has published two books.She has degrees in anthropology, sociology and psychology.She comes to Chesapeake Bay to observe and study small town life for her next book.However, the reader soon learns that she chose Chesapeake Bay because of Seth.She purposely meets the brothers and finds that Phillip is attracted to her.She begins a relationship with him in order to be closer to and learn about Seth.Gloria (Seth's mother) returns to the area.Gloria has a bigger role in this book than in the previous two books.

This was ok, but I couldn't get into the characters.They were good as supporting characters in the Seth story and for the series, but the story about their relationship wasn't as good as I'd hoped.They each were wounded in the past in different ways.Now they are smooth and polished.I didn't see how they grew to love each other.They were sort of thrown together, and then they have sex because they are physically attracted to each other.The value of this book is learning about Gloria and seeing some of her actions.It finishes some of the unresolved issues from the first two books.So it's worthwhile in that way.

Story length: 238 pages.Swearing language: strong.Sexual language: none.Number of sex scenes: 3.Total number of sex scene pages: 7.Setting: current day Chesapeake Bay area and Baltimore, Maryland.Copyright: 1999.Genre: contemporary romance with fantasy.

Product Description
New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts provides a potent mix of small-town secrets, scandalous romance, and down-home Southern atmosphere as a young woman searching for some bayou R&R finds herself entangled in a serial killer’s wicked web.
Burned out and still reeling from a love affair gone bad, world-class violinist Caroline Waverly goes to her grandparents’ home in Innocence, Mississippi, for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Instead she finds herself overwhelmed all over again—first by Tucker Longstreet, a charming local with a sideline in no-strings-attached relationships, and then by a deadlier, more disturbing development.

For Innocence is being stalked by its very own serial killer, whose brutal knife blows have pierced the veil of tranquillity in this sleepy Southern town and left a trail of mutilated female corpses in their wake. When a federal agent arrives to investigate, the town’s deepest secrets bubble to the surface and suspicion turns on Tucker as the most likely suspect. After Caroline finds the latest murder victim floating in the murky waters behind her house, she too is inexorably drawn into the path of a crazed killer who may be closer than she could have ever imagined.Amazon.com Review

4-0 out of 5 stars Good story with a surprise ending!!!
N. Roberts does it again--------Great story with an ending like Hitchcock was famous for-----I'm always a little disappointed when I've waded thru a fairly long interesting story to find that it ends a bit too quickly and leaves some open items------I've been accused of being a revenge freak, and I guess I am.But Nora remains one of my favorite authors!!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of her best books!!!
I love most of NB books (especially the newer material romantic-suspense) and this one is by far the best.I picked it up at Walmart and by the title I thought I would not like it.I could not put this book down from the first page I read but it also was not a quick read because I didn't want to miss any parts!!!

I received the book in excellent condition. I love ordering from Amazon. I loved reading this book..finished it in 2 days

5-0 out of 5 stars A good summer read
Okay, so I love to listen to Nora Roberts audiobooks.I picked up Carnal Innocence a couple of weeks ago at the library and just got around to listening to it this weekend.I thought that it was one of those books when you want something light and you end up getting involved in a really good story that you weren't expecting.When I say this book has lots of twists, please believe me, not only that but as a Mississippi girl myself, some of the sayings used in the book had me laughing when I remembered people I know saying them.I think that this book is one of those great books that you would read on a lazy vacation day.Highly recommend it.

2-0 out of 5 stars couldn't wait to get to the end
I love Nora Roberts. I "think" I have read and enjoyed everything she has written. Carnal Innocence was so long and boring. I mean realy, it took forever to get to the end. Great ending, but by the time you get there you're like "oh ya I get it".I hope the next Nora Robert book has a little more meat it. - Remember "Northern Lights"? Now that's a Nora Roberts book. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Same Old Same Old
If you've read Nora Robert's Unfinished Business, then you've basically read this book too. There are many similarities between the two, each as predictable as the next. I've realized that a lot of Robert's older books have the same plot line as some of the newer ones, just with different character names and a different setting.

Read Holding the Dream only if you want to read it after Finding the Dream and before Daring to Dream, but don't expect too much or an exciting read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Holdinhg the Dream
Great summer read.Part of the triology of books that Nora Roberts has writeen,Holds your interst.Lots of twists and turns.Definite a summer beach book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gotta love Nora and her series...
What can I say besides I love how Nora developes her characters and their stories.This one had a smart woman go through some healh and fraud at work that could easily happen to any normal person.This was very down to earth and again I loved the love story!Can't wait to read about Laura in the third book though!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars "Holding"... just ok for me.
"Finding A Dream" to me was not as good as ("Daring To Dream") the first book in the trilogy. Maybe it's because Margo was a little more exciting and Josh was a little more...Josh (what a great character he was!). Kate's story was ok, but I guess to tell Margo's and Laura's story Kate's has to be told as well. Now I'm onto "Finding The Dream" (Laura's story), and I can't wait to see what kind of man Roberts has in store for her.

5-0 out of 5 stars Holding the Dream
As usual, Nora Roberts at her best.Great book.I didnt realize that it took place just miles up the road from where I live.Made it even more intersting. ... Read more

Product Description
New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves scandal, celebrity secrets, and murder into an explosive novel of Hollywood almost too wicked not to be true: the story of a legendary actress who knows too much—and the woman she’s chosen to reveal it all….

Eve Benedict is the kind of subject who could make any biographer’s career. Last of the movie goddesses, she has two Oscars, four ex-husbands, and a legion of lovers, both famous and infamous. Now she is ready to write a tell-all memoir that has even Hollywood’s richest and most powerful worried.

Julia Summers never dreamed of being chosen to tell Eve’s story. But even if it means transplanting herself and her ten-year-old son from their quiet life in Connecticut to the withering limelight of Beverly Hills, it’s an opportunity too great to pass up. But Julia never imagined how far someone would go to keep Eve Benedict’s book from being published…until she discovers just how dark Eve’s secrets are. And the one man Julia hopes she can trust—Eve’s stepson, Paul Winthrop—may have the most to gain if his stepmother’s story is never told…and if Julia’s life ends before she can write a word of the truth.Amazon.com Review
With her storytelling abilities in full force, Nora Robertsgoes Hollywood in this contemporary romantic suspense. Ever sinceJulia Summers became a single mother at 18, she's focused all herenergies on creating a secure home for her 10-year-old son, Brandon,and establishing herself as a sought-after biographer of Hollywoodstars. Now quintessential movie goddess Eve Benedict, whose 50-yearcareer has included two Oscars, four husbands, and scores of lovers,has particularly sought out Julia to write Eve's ultimate tell-allbook. But as Eve reveals to Julia her many long-held secrets, Juliarealizes there's a whole cast of characters with good reasons to keepEve silent, including Eve's well-loved stepson, Paul Winthrop, ahandsome novelist whose desire for Julia is beginning to penetrate herwary reserve. Eve, still glamorous, desirable, and reckless, thinksshe's set the stage for events she can direct, but more and more, it'sclear that someone dangerous is out of control. Fast paced, with agood balance between suspense and romance, and with more heart thanmany Hollywood-set novels. --Ellen Edwards ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars another great one
I love her books! And just like all of the others, I couldn't put it down!

5-0 out of 5 stars CHARMING MYSTERY / ROMANCE
Set in Philadelphia, the story brings together Jed, a strong, brooding man and a discontented police captain and Dora Conway, intelligent, independent woman and an antiques dealer. Jed has no desire to get connected with anyone as he fights his own demons, but can't help himself. There's intrigue and suspense around antique smuggling, humor and romance, and cute interplay that keeps the reader hooked. A fun read!

Some other favorites of mine are LUNCH IN PARIS, EXPLOSION IN PARIS, Lucia, Lucia, and VERY VALENTINE.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read!
I owned this book and must have loaned it out but it never was returned.I could not recall the exact title and wasn't sure it was written by Nora Roberts.I wanted to read it again so much that I searched the web for books by my favorite authors until I came across the title, Hidden Riches.I read the trailer and was so glad I found it so I purchased another copy.It has romance, suspence, family, and humor.One of Nora's better stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nora Roberts At Her Best
Nora Roberts is so dependable to release " Just What I Am Interested In". Although I also enjoy " True Crime"- I have purchased many more by Roberts.

Product Description
The final book in the New England-set trilogy that began with Dance Upon the Air and Heaven and Earth.Amazon.com Review
Setting: Three Sisters Island

Sensuality: 7

A stunningly beautiful, powerful witch who possesses the gift of Fire, Mia Devlin locked her heart away when Sam Logan rejected her youthful love and left Three Sisters Island. Eleven years later, Sam returns to the island to claim Mia and take over his family business, the Magick Inn. Passion still burns between them, but Mia refuses to trust the man who once tore her life apart, leaving her grieving and alone. It's imperative that they find a way to resolve their thorny, complicated relationship for time is running out and the deadline for breaking a centuries-old curse is near. Mia has the steadfast aid of her two sisters of the heart, powerful witches that rule Air and Earth, but without Sam's help, even Mia's powers may not be enough to keep her alive until the deadline. And unless Mia makes the right choice about her heart and Sam, evil may win in the final confrontation, destroying all their lives and Three Sisters Island as well.

Face the Fire is the third and last book in bestselling author Nora Roberts's trilogy of witches, magic, and an age-old curse that began with Dance upon the Air and Heaven and Earth. This novel boasts a vivid seaside setting, sympathetic characters, and enough details about the practice of magic to intrigue the most cynical of readers. This is Roberts at her best. Don't miss it. --Lois Faye Dyer ... Read more

After reading the first two in the trilogy I couldn't wait to read more about the third, mysterious sister. I did expect a bit more out of the character, but truly enjoyed reading Mia's story.

5-0 out of 5 stars good vs evil
very well written,keeps you guessing to the end if you are into covens ,ect this triology is for you ,read thr whole thing ,you wont be sorry

3-0 out of 5 stars Ehhh
Now, I have not read the other two in the series, so I will not comment on the supernatural plot (which I actually found to be kind of stupid).

I could not connect to Mia. She was just too cold, and so were Nell and Ripley, to Sam. Yes, he left her. But the fact that he wanted to fix what he did is mature. And the way she talked to her friend's husband Mac really pissed me off. He also seemed to be affected by it, like when he'd blush, which made Mia seem like such a flirt, and not very intelligent. I really liked Sam's character, and felt that everybody was just too mean to him.

Not having read the other two, that's all I can really say. Though I don't think I will go out of my way to, judging by how I felt about this excuse for a finale.
