While the last Nora Roberts stand alone I read (The Search) was okay, I was glad to find that this one had more of the writing that has drawn me to NR books in the past. Within the first few pages I was sucked in - unfortunate timing since I was only on a short break at work, but such is the way of things. I really liked Elizabeth/Liz/Abigail. I've always wished I could be so multi-talented, and admire such capability in the characters I read about. But she was more than just talented. She had just the right amount of tragic and sad in her life to make her more personable to the reader. Brooks was a pretty charming character himself. His family dynamic was similar to that of many of the characters of NR's past books. And that family dynamic is an aspect of NR's books that I've always enjoyed. I managed to fly through this book in a day.
Now I need to go back and read Chasing Fire which I accidentally skipped (I had to return it before reading... then forgot to check it out again). I also need to start the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy. I haven't read the Circle trilogy or Sign of Seven trilogy yet either, but I don't know if I will be any time soon.
