The Search by Nora Roberts -- Did Not Finish

Back in the day I used to be a HUGE Nora Roberts fan. I still have my beat up copies of Sweet Revenge and Carnal Innocence. I read those books over and over when I was in my late teens. Then the older I got, the more my literary tastes expanded, I guess you can say. I haven't read a Nora Roberts novel in quite some time.

I put my name on the "list" at the library, thinking I would just give it a shot. I got about 200 pages into it when I realized that I was rushing through pages just because the book is due tomorrow. I didn't really have much interest in the story. The steamy sex scenes I remember from her older books don't seem quite so steamy. It was predictable and pretty much boring.

I know that Nora Roberts has a fan base of about a gazillion people, but I think this fan is best to think fond memories of novels gone by.

A great book with an awesome plot that kept getting better. I loved the canine angle and enjoyed reading how SAR dogs, and dogs in general, are trained, which is an important part of this story. Fiona and Simon are a well matched pair and they are interesting in their own way and you can't help but get involved in their relationship. Ms. Robert has once again given us a book to reread again and again

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
