There is no killer on the loose, no mystical hocus pocus. It's just the characters, stripped raw, and prodding at each other before accepting that yes, this is what they are. It's rare that you find romance novels like this nowadays, where the writer trusts the reader to take the characters on board, not needing the ADD of guns and spells and magick.

I am rereading books out of my book case just because I can.
Finding the Dream by Nora Roberts was a very good book. I loved it because involved children and their relationships with their parents at that age. They didn't muse over too much but when they did it added a flair to the story. Nora Roberts really knows how to captivate a reader. Laura finding her true love could not have ended this pa I am rereading books out of my book case just because I can. Laura finding her true love could not have ended this particular trilogy any better.
Luckily I was already starting to remember the first two books halfway into the first chapter. I enjoyed the way she had both Laura and Michael struggling to understand their feelings for each other.

The usual misunderstandings, protective family, meddling friends, and circumstances attempt to thwart their romance, but after all this is a romance novel, so you know the guy gets the girl in the end. The characters and scene are so captivating that the book stands alone and is a quick, entertaining, satisfying read.
This book also gives you a chance to keep up with Margo and Kate's life as well. When you are through with the book you feel as though these three women are now your best friends. Aug 22, Maria rated it liked it Shelves: romance. This the last book of the "Dream trilogy" was the best. Laura was believable in her attempt to get her life back together after a nasty divorce. Her husband cheated on her, she actually caught them "in flagrante".

After that ordeal she, naturally, got a little wary of men. Michael dont have high thoughts of him self. He ran away at 18 after domestic violence and worked his way through the seven seas, as a mercenary, a stuntman and finally breeding horses. Fate brings him to the Tempelton estate w This the last book of the "Dream trilogy" was the best. Fate brings him to the Tempelton estate where he rents the stables and get his eyes on Laura. Gave me a good laugh, it did.
Some of the down side is all the blatant richness of the main characters. And who wants to mix white chocolate with popcorn and champagne? Another thing that bugged me as a cat lover, kittens should stay with their mother as long as possible. But in this book Laura buys two kittens only 6 weeks old. Poor mittens. But they were thoroughly loved. I have to be contented with that. I liked Laura a lot and I'm happy that she not only managed to get her life back on track, but that she and her daughters found happiness again after her ex-husband betrayed them.
I also liked Michael. He seems to be the opposite of Laura, but they fit together well and the way he cared for her children Seeing them falling for each other and building a new family without even realizing it at first was great. They had their struggles, but they overcame them, even if it took a bit of drama at the end. They really are a family and it was nice to see how close they all are. I also liked that we got a glimpse into the relationship between Laura's parents and that we finally learned more about Seraphina's treasure.
Feb 13, Bridget rated it liked it. I am not going to review every Nora Roberts book that I have read in the past because she is quite prolific and it would get redundant and I honestly cannot remember all the plots. I think someone finds someone else attractive but at least one cannot admit it so there is sexual tension, then lots of sex, and then they live happily ever after? Sometimes there is some magic , a family legacy, or a mystery. I think I have read every one of her books to date because despite the cheesy nature, the ending is always happy and the read is easy.
Frankly, I like these books and will continue to read each one that comes out. I am going to post this same review for each of her books that I have read in the past.

Standing on the cliffs of 12th-century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds. His enemy, the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith, has had over 2, years of experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into one of her own - including Hoyt's brother, Cian.
Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother. But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother.
The Malory Price Life Plan does not include a quixotic quest - but the strangers on Warrior's Peak claim that she must find a key that will release three souls held captive by an evil god.

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. For Emma, her childhood had been almost like a rags-to-riches fairy tale - until the tragic night that changed her family forever.
Her childhood had been a lie. Her father had been a thief. Her mind struggled to absorb these facts, to analyze, to accept. Kate Powell had been orphaned at an early age, when she had, essentially, watched her parents die. Her family had been taken away, but she had been given another. The distant kinship didn't matter to Thomas and Susan Templeton. They had taken her in, raised her as their own, given her a home and love.
Now, 20 years later, she has learned the truth from a colleague of her father. A man who did not realize that the Templetons had gone to great lengths to protect the child from knowledge that would hurt and shame her. Nora has such a brilliant way of weaving stories together, from the first one to the last, all the while adding threads to the tapestry giving a unique pattern to each story, while maintaining the integrity of each character in their own personal place in the series.
She's truly a genius in storytelling. Nice example of Nora's earlier work. See All Customer Reviews.
