Under Currents

Since I first discovered her work in the summer of 1997, I've looked forward to Nora Roberts' standalone romantic suspense titles every year. Not all of them end up on my keeper shelf, but each of them has brought me an overall feeling of warmth and comfort, sort of like being wrapped in a fuzzy bla ...

Northern Lights

Originally released in 2004, Northern Lights details the adventures of an almost-but-not-quite washed up Baltimore cop turned rural Alaska police chief. His new post involves keeping order in the tiny town of Lunacy, with only 2 deputies to help him. It's a far cry from the streets of Baltimore, but ...

Come Sundown

I first read a book by Nora Roberts in the summer of 1997. Looking back, it's hard to believe I've been a fan of her work for the past twenty years. Of course, she's written some things I haven't enjoyed, but her standalone romantic suspense titles are by and large, all on my keeper shelf. Her lates ...

The Obsession

A lot of buzz usually surrounds a new release from author Nora Roberts and that was definitely the case with The Obsession, her latest romantic suspense title, which I started hearing about in late 2015. The plot sounded intriguing, so I decided to pick it up for review. As a child, Naomi Bowes k ...

Stars of Fortune

I love romances set on Greek Islands, and when I learned this first book in the author’s Guardians trilogy is set on Corfu, I downloaded it immediately. Unfortunately, after the initial chapters, the book felt as if it could have been set anywhere near the sea and didn’t live up to my expectatio ...

The Liar

In 1997, I listened to my very first Nora Roberts audiobook and I've been a fan of her romantic suspense titles ever since. Later, I gave a few of her trilogies a try, and while I liked them well enough, her stand-alone novels, featuring well-balanced romance and intrigue are far and away my favorit ...

Blood Magick

Well, my anticipation for Branna and Finbar’s story was, sadly, not met. This is the third book in the Cousins O’Dywer series and I had been hoping that it would be the one to put the others to shame. The first two books, Dark Witch and Shadow Spell were pretty dull. All along though, Branna a ...

Shadow Spell

If you’ve been a fan of Nora Roberts for a while, it will be nearly impossible for you to not compare the new Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy with some of Roberts' older works. Sadly, making such comparisons can only end badly for Shadow Spell. Much like the first book in this new trilogy, the second ...

Dark Witch

I was eager to listen to this first entry in the author’s new The Cousins of O’Dwyer trilogy. Two of my favorite Nora Roberts’ trilogies take place in Ireland, while another features witches, so the combination seemed perfect. Maybe not. Haley reviewed the print version of Dark Witch and gave ...
