5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites
"Angels Fall" is one of my all-time favorite books by Nora Roberts. The characters are believable, the plot is full of suspense, and the setting is breathtaking. Once again, Nora Roberts does not disappoint when it comes to describing the lush mountain scenery.
4-0 out of 5 stars She's the Master
Even though this is the first Nora Roberts' book I've reviewed, I'm a huge fan and have read almost all of her books.The only reason I didn't give this book five stars is because it's not as in depth as her other books - such as Northern Lights - one of my all time favorites.Don't get me wrong, Angels Fall wasn't lacking in any regard. I thoroughly enjoyed the characterization - impeccable as usual - Reece and Brody read like real people. The plot was intriguing and even though I wasn't too surprised when the "bad guy" was revealed, it didn't at all detract from a very enjoyable read.Nora Roberts seems to write effortlessly while sucking you into the story, making you feel as if you're watching it all unravel on the big screen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read
The book was riveting in such that I couldn't put the book down even while working. The finding out what Reece was hiding and becoming a strong person because she wanted to live her life was excellent.The trust she had for Brody made the romance that was coming so believable.Excellent story. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good But Slow
The first book by Sandra Brown that I read was Chill Factor and really enjoyed it. Ricochet was a good book, but slow in the middle. I will definitely read more of her books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent story!
This is definitely one of her better romantic suspense stories.She's definitely back to the Mirror Image type romantic suspense. This definitely had more romance than Chill Factor.I thought the romance between Elise and Duncan was passionate and really heartfelt. I truly believed they loved each other.
3-0 out of 5 stars poor character development has me ricocheting between reading Sandra's next book or not
I have read all Sandra Brown's suspense/romance novels so I feel justified in saying that although Ricochet was a better read than White Hot or Chill Factor, I was again bothered by the poor character development. Duncan was a fairly well developed character--DeeDee somewhat better, but not much for any other players. The concept of ricocheting between the lies and deceit carried out by Elise, an unreliable character, is too much to ask of the reader.I am personally insulted that I was cheated out of the inner workings of Elise's mind, thoughts, and force fed her version of everything. The concept in writing is, "show don't tell." None of that here!

Debbie Macomber's latest book returns to the small town of Cedar Cove
3-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the wait .....
I have absolutely loved this series.It has been wonderful, light reading and I have looked forward to each installment.I sat down with this book expecting to be delighted and just wasn't.
5-0 out of 5 stars 6 Rainier Drive
Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series is like having extended family ; wonderful characters whom you visit every once in awhile and are so glad you did because you have such a great time. Ms. Macomber is a genius at portraying contemporary personalities, joys and problems with such an encompassing warmthand knowledge that you feel like you know the people and places or actually ARE the people and live in the places. Here is an author with an inate sense of such a wide range of female and male emotions that you as the reader get to really "feel" what the characters are thinking , and why. The whole series is a delightful glimpse in other realities and as such it compliments and accents your own life. Thank you , Ms. Macomber. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful classic on the classics
Myths represent everything that's magical and unlikely -and yet we cannot but admire their underlying wisdom: ever since fables sprung up, man has delighted in analyzing, telling and retelling the stories we now see as an inextricable part of our civilization. It's because of this, and because they so-well mirror our own nature, that mythology is as self-contradictory as it is timeless. Naturally, this fact has turned the subject into another academic battleground. That's maybe why Bullfinch's version of the myths stills stands out a century and a half after it was written: amidst a sea of dry scholarly works, it is easily the most charming and inviting compendium of mythology available.
4-0 out of 5 stars A bargain at twice the price
Very nice volume, rare to see gilt page edges these days.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fool Me Once by Fern Michaels
"Fool Me Once," is a fun-loving yet anxious and suspenseful novel. In the story, Olivia Lowell slowly unveils the real truth of how her mother and her three friends robbed a bank without being caught. Olivia's mother left her this fortune; along with the fortune Olivia found herself hating her mother for abandoning her all those years ago.Olivia's hatred grows deeper throughout the novel until her lawyer finally makes her realize that she just needs to let go of it and move on with own life. Fern Michaels does an excellent job in showing how much havoc Olivia's mother had created for Olivia. Despite all the chaos that was brought about in Olivia's life, she was able to get through it all and be at peace with herself. Olivia's biggest problem in the novel was her internal conflict of always wanting and trying her best to do what is right. Fern Michaels portrays how Olivia was able to overcome her troubled life through companionship; her father being her biggest supporter along with the fellowship of her Yorkies. The author effectively ties in some romance into Olivia's life, and she ends up falling deeply in love with her lawyer. Fern Michaels creates such excitement in the novel that as a reader it is hard to put the book down. The author shows that no matter how much chaos that occurred in Olivia's life, she was ultimately able to rise above it all with her companions by her side.The author does a good job of keeping the reader captivated without confusing him/her throughout all the suspense.
5-0 out of 5 stars Happily Ever After
Imagine how you would feel believing your mother died at childbirth and then having an attorney drop off a letter from yourrecently deceased mother. Olivia Lowell is faced with that after 34 years of living a good life with her father Dennis.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kid tested, mother approved
This book was one of three Bullseye Classics we bought for my son's second grade English class.He picked this one up as soon as the box arrived and had it read within an hour.He loved the stories and was able to re-tell them to his little sister. I hadn't heard the stories about "Big Hands" or "What do women want?"This collection really got his imagination going and he wants to read more about King Arthur.
1-0 out of 5 stars Awful writing, terrible grammar, bad for children
In addition to the ham-handed telling of the story, the writing in these Bullseye books is just terrible. Half-sentences. Written like this. Or this.Part of the value of such books is that young readers will learn to read "chapter books." But the English and grammar in these books is so abysmal as to render them useless for this task.I was very disappointed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for reading to a younger child
I agree that this is not the finest book written on King Arthur, but it is one that can be read aloud, and easily enhanced by a grandmother anxious to read these legends toa second grader---- finding something appropriate for a young listener has not been easy! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing
This trilogy was a little disappointing.I can't imagine being an author, like Nora Roberts, and putting out best sellars all the time, still, she has set a certain standard.Which this time, I don't feel like she quite got there.Still an entertaining read, but not the best work for Nora Roberts.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Beach Book
If you are in need of a great book to sit by the ocean and read, try Manhunt.It is about a woman giving up her stressful life in New Jersey to find a man in Alaska.It is a quick predictable read, but it is great for those mindless trips to the beach.A little romance and a big margarita. What more could you need?

3-0 out of 5 stars Light Read
I bought this to take on vacation and to help pass the time until the next Stephanie Plum novel.It was a quick read and enjoyable.I could see a lot of the later Plum novels in the situations and dialogue.

3-0 out of 5 stars Soft porn for the ladies
At the point of mental exhaustion after finishing a 600-page novel of intrigue in Victorian England, I felt in need of lighter fare. Yup, this was it.

Back cover reads:
4-0 out of 5 stars Third in the original Soldier of Fortune series
This is the story of Diego Laremos and Melissa Sterling.Melissa has been in love with Diego for years.Diego is a mercenary because he wanted to bring in quick money to help his family.The history is that Melissa's mother was to have married Diego's father and bring a large dowry with her, but she fell in love with Melissa's father and marries him. This caused a lot of animosity between the two families, but did not dampen Melissa's love for Diego.One day Melissa wrote a love letter to Diego that she had no intention of giving him.She left the letter on a desk and decided to go for a ride.She accidentally met up with Diego and they were forced to hide in ruins when a minor skirmish broke out.While in the ruins, you guessed it, they had some mind blowing ... and were caught in the act by Melissa's father.This was the catalyst for a shot gun wedding that they were both soon to regret. Diego blamed Melissa for their misery and made sure that he did not come into contact with her once they were married.Diego's family showed their animosity towards Melissa and blamed her not only for the present but also for the past.Melissa soon realized she was pregnant and knew that she and Diego could not divorce due to their religous convictions.When Diego finally returned home she vowed to make their marriage work.She approached Diego and asked him to try also.Diego, the whimp, was afraid of the sexual power she had over him and coldly rejected her by telling her that she disgusts him. Melissa felt mortally wounded by this treatment and ran.She ended up in the hospital and the doctor confirmed her pregnancy and that the baby was okay. She begged him not to tell Diego who thought that the original diagnosis, that she had lost the baby, still stood. Diego feeling guilty now resolved to make the marriage work, unfortunately Melissa does not realize this and is not interested; she does not want to raise her baby in a home filled with hate.She leaves the hospital that night and makes her way to America.Fast forward five year later and Melissa is in the hospital again recovering from an accident that injured her leg and took one of her ovaries.The doctors had notified Diego who rushed to America to care for his wife.He becomes angry, and resentful of the boy that is Melissa son but wants very much to make his marriage to her work.This story is really good and you get to visit with all the Soldiers of Fortune.You even get to read about Apollo and his mad dash to the altar.This is definitely a keeper.Good reading! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A lot better than the first
This is the second book in the circle trilogy.Like the first book, Morrigan's Cross, it starts off slow and if I could deduct 1/2 a point for that I would.But it makes up for it as it goes on.This is Larkin (a shape shifter) and Blair's (a vampire slayer)story. They are two of the six selected by Morrigan to form a circle and destroy a Vampire Queen Lilith, before she destroys the world.Besides the budding romance between Larkin and Blair this book has the 6 going back to the land of Geall to prepare for the fight that has to take place on Samhain.There are some minor battles fought and more character development in this one.It really makes you anxious to read the final installment, Cian and Moiras story. Nora blends fantasy and reality nicely.A fun story.

2-0 out of 5 stars A little closer attention to detail please...
After reading fantasy and sci-fi for the last 30 years, I consider myself rather well-read in the genre.Lately, as my taste has expanded to include urban fantasy, I have found quite a few authors who can make an alternate reality real.Alas, Book 2 of Nora Roberts doesn't make the cut.As a romance writer, NR probably creates reasonable story lines that actually make some sense.Dance of the Gods asks for total suspense of disbelief and then a willingness to exploit a genre for the sake of making some money.
5-0 out of 5 stars What a fun book!
I'm having such fun with this trilogy!I like it much better than her previous ones that have involved aspects of fantasy such as the In the Garden or Key trilogies.These characters have me hooked and I can't wait to see what happens next!Larkin is so darned cute and him and Blair together just made me laugh out loud several times throughout this book.She almost reminded me of Eve Dallas with her kick-butt attitude and long leather coat.Nora has done such a great job balancing out the darkness in this trilogy with love, hope and light and it makes this book truly a joy to read.I am counting the days until Valley of Silence comes out and I can read Cian and Moira's story.He's become my favorite character and a book focused on him should make for some intense reading indeed.This whole trilogy is definitely worth reading! Have I gushed enough yet? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Give this one a pass
If anyone is new to the Dark series by Christine Feehan, you absolutely need to READ DARK PRINCE FIRST.Feehan introduces a new race of paranormal humans, and you need to know what about their Carpathian/vampire universe.Also, what happens in this book deals directly with what happened in Dark Prince.Dark Desire is not standalone.After Dark Prince you can almost pick up any of the other books.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Dark books
A little Different than the rest.Good for a change of feeling to the series, something different bt familiar.

4-0 out of 5 stars So Jacques is INSANE
I liked this installment in the dark series because it dealt with Carpathian instability.Many levels ofmental instability were explored both through Shea's character and that of Jacques.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Typical Nora
I love Nora Roberts and have read most of her books...usually when a new one is released I rush right out to buy it.I have to say I was very disapointed in Morrigan's Cross.I had a difficult time getting into this book and it took me forever to read it...usually I get so hooked by her books, I can't put them down.I hope the second one in this series is not as disappointing!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not her best...
I did not like this book.I couldn't even finish it and it was so disappointing because I always love Nora Roberts books.I hope after this trilogy she doesn't write anymore books like this, needless to say I won't be buying the other two books in the series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Captivating!!
Similar to other readers, I had contemplated not reading this trilogy thinking it would have a silly story-line, but I was wrong.

I found the book to be intriguing and it takes your breath away. Ms.Christine Feehan is a great writer I enjoy all her books in the dark series.

This book was surprisingly well written, and I enjoyed reading it.I though the chemistry between Nicolae and Destiny was very realistic, and somewhat sizzling.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best "Dark" books
This is one of my favorite "Dark" books.Ms. Feehan has a tendency to get caught up in the details of the plot, at the expense of devloping the characters; her characters can appear a bit one-dimensional.

5-0 out of 5 stars my favourite romance book ever
When this book was first introduced, over 14 yrs ago, I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with everybody.Of course,when you do that, you loseyour books.It took me 10 years to get another copy, but I never forgotthe characters - the surprising sassiness of our heroine in the face ofarrogance and blind stubbornness from our hero.The surprising tendernessof our hero when confronted with our slightly befuddled and alarminglyold-fashioned heroine. This book is Diana Palmer at her finest, andregardless of future disappointments from her, I will always forgive herbecause this book touched my heart so completely. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So good and real!
I loved this book!It was such a fast read.I can't wait to get another one!

1-0 out of 5 stars Stick to Romance, Sparky.
Sparks must have had a momentary lapse of reason when he decided to take a stab at suspense by writing The Guardian. This book is awful. The storyline is weak and predictable, the dialogue is excruciatingly lame, and the characters are poorly developed and lack depth and chemistry. There is virtually no romance, which is the reason to read Sparks' books. I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes at the stupid things people said, the way the dog seems to be human, and the predictability of the plot. This book is so poorly written and so lame I have trouble believing Sparks wrote it. If you want a good plot with romance mixed in, read Message in a Bottle or A Walk to Remember. If you want suspense, read Mary Higgins Clark or Agatha Christie; they do a far better job with it than Sparks does.

I love Nicholas Sparks books.I really love the Notebook because it reminds me of one of my loves.The Guardian was great, like many others, I couldn't put the book down.I hope he does a lot morestories with mystery involved,After reading one of the reviews, it just goes to show that you can not tell a book by its cover. Come on, Nicholas, MORE, More, More.Keep up the good work ... Read more

Easy going down and eminently forgettable.Not a bad effort by Ms. Gruen by any means, but a substantial amount of the book is given to cliched, obvious writing (both in language and character).The general premise is enjoyable, however; who doesn't like the circus.Reading "Water for Elephants" is like watching a movie on cable - odds are that you've already seen it, you know where it's going, but it's still a fine way to pass some time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, engaging book
What a great read. Couldn't put it down. Great character development. I truly cared about these people. A wonderful combination of a book about aging, the circus, a love affair and at the same time keeps you on the edge of your sit. Oh, its about an elephant too!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book
I found this book while perusing Amazon.com.It is rare for me to find a book that is so entertaining but this one was.I have never read any of the other books by this author, but she is excellent.The book takes you into the time of the depression and you feel, smell and experience everything that the charachter is feeling.The main charachter is in his nineties now, but we get to travel back in time through him, to this time in U.S. history and experience how a traveling circus worked back then.It is such a richly written story, you will not want to put it down.The desperation of the times, the way people lived, their expectations, their feelings, etc. are all here.I have recommended this book to multiple friends, which I rarely do.You will not be disappointed with this story.There are no low points that drag.It's a green light read from start to finish.There is an authors note at the end, and she explains how she came up with the idea and her research to write this book depicting this time period and the circus era.Although it is fiction, she got the facts first and melded it into this novel.Very good indeed. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
I could not put this book down! I loved it. I'm a new fan. I've read this book twice now. The only disapointment was the final battle between Jaxon's father and Lucian. I expected more. But over all, WOW!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dark Guardian, part of the dark series
i enjoyed the twist in this novel, where Jaxon is haunted by a very menacing human terror rather than just a vampire terror. This book also has the first real castle in the series, yet Christine Feehan makes it sound very home-like.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best
Finally Lucian (probably the most powerful carpathian) & Jaxon's story!

5-0 out of 5 stars Rick Evans Latest Novel A Winner
Finding Noel grabbed my attention from the very first chapter.As a devoted Evans reader, I found this book one of his best, matching it closely with his first, A Christmas Box.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Warm Holiday Tale
Finding Noel is a sweet story which harkens back to the roots of the author's past Christmas themes of longing for loved ones and fighting for what's most important in this life... and then holding on tight!His fans are in for a wonderful holiday treat... something to savour and to share.

4-0 out of 5 stars A sentimental tale for the holidays
Richard Evans has a history of writing touching stories.His first book The Christmas Box left many of our library patrons touched for weeks, most freely admitting to shedding many tears.
