    N o achei que fosse dos melhores, mas tamb m n o foi dos piores Ainda me ri em algumas cenas, Kirby e o pai tinham umas sa das mesmo loucas e o c o e a gata juntavam se festa D Do que gostei mais foi que nem Kirby nem Adam fossem aquele tipo de personagem que resiste aos sentimentos e n o se quer apaixonar e quando acontece recusa, etc

    I have to say this was my least favorite Nora Roberts It was a struggle to get through I couldn t connect with the characters, I really didn t care what happened to them The writing was good and I was interested in the plot.

    I adore these oldies from Nora They re just ooey gooey romance with some mystery and suspense Sex scenes aren t graphic at all, they border on purply I didn t give it five stars because I thought the heroine was a bit of a dolt during the climax and wrap up I absolutely loved her otherwise she s a total Mary Sue mixed with the best parts of a Manic Pixie Girl And the hero was your typical alpha in touch with his emotions, as usual with Nora Roberts early work.It s pure candy and I love it I also understand if it s totally not your thing.

    I got this book as part of the Whispered Promises compilation.The gist Kirby s father is a famous painter Adam is a well known painter Adam comes to stay in their house for a few weeks Kirby s dad does forgeries of famous, classic paintings It s fraud, but he s not a bad guy Anyway, a Rembrandt painting has been stolen and Adam is there, secretly, to find the Rembrandt Kirby and Adam fall in love There are a couple attempts made on Kirby s life The whole plot with the Rembrandt is unraveled This one was alright, but it s definitely not my favorite Nora book I m a serious Nora fan, I own almost all of her books This one is definitely subpar BUT, it is one of her earlier books and she has definitely gotten A LOT better the she s written I chuckled quite a bit because Kirby and her dad are eccentric and they re sort of whackadoodle There s this whole bit with a cat and dog that had me rolling with laughter.Kirby and Adam fall in love with each other within a few days of knowing each other and that whole aspect was a stretch considering the characters The plot with the Rembrandt was somewhat suspenseful How it unraveled was exciting But the whole reasoning and stuff for the Rembrandt plot seemed just weird and weak for me.If you ve never read one of Nora s books, I wouldn t recommend starting with this one, or even this compilation She s a BRILLIANT artist and she has MUCH BETTER works of art than this one You can look through my book lists on goodreads to find several I absolutely loved I will continue to read her stories because she truly is one of the very best in the business, but this one isn t a very good example of her brilliance and domination of the romance genre.

    Art, artists, creativity and deceptionAnother winner from Nora Roberts With her usual skill, Nora Roberts has given us a mystery that I didn t solve until she showed us the solution We have a cast of talented and eccentric artists, a castle without a moat, but with a butler and maid who run the place Most of all she has given us wonderful descriptions of works of art and process of creating them.After just a few pages, I was caught up in the people and place and couldn t put it down.

    I was disappointed by my last two books so I decided to return to an old favorite who I knew would give me a quick, romantic, easy read and I wasn t disappointed I m a pretty big fan of Nora Roberts because I think she does romance without being trashy and every girl could use romance in her life trashy has its place as well Side note two of my favorite romance series are Roberts Bride Quartet and the Inn Boonsboro trilogy Check them out This novel introduces us to the feisty Kirby, the mysterious Adam, and the lovable Fairchild The latter may be at the top of my list of favorite characters He is adoring, quirky, brilliant, and hilarious He may be why I liked this book so much All three main characters are artists who live in a world of restrained wealthy where champagne fizzed quietly and dignity was an essential as the proper alma mater There is a certain level of intrigue and mystery to this love story and the dialogue is full of witty banter and biting sarcasm Sure, there were parts that were predictable but I found myself surprised by at least one twist The only thing that bothered me a little was the point of view would change rapidly from focusing on one character for a long period of time to another with very little warning I caught myself doing a couple double takes to figure out who was thinking talking Overall, this book was a very entertaining, quick read P 168
