Nora Robertsīs Heart of the Sea

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back. I hope youīre all snuggled up somewhere warm this week, especially those of you in the midwest with all the snow, with your pile of to-be-read romances. Iīve been busy reading this week and have three new books to share with you, so letīs get started.

First off is the final book in Nora Robertsīs Irish trilogy, Heart of the Sea (Jove). This time out is stubborn, mercenary Darcyīs turn for love, though you know sheīll fight it every step of the way, especially if it means she has to stay at home. And along for the ride is Trevor Magee, in Ardmore to build the new theatre. As always, Ms. Robertsīs characters are real and draw you into the story. Youīll be laughing and crying along with them on this stroll through the Irish countryside. Iīm going to be sorry to see this family go, because theyīve been delightful. Cupidīs lent me four and a half of his five arrows for this one.


Next up is Wrong Child by Patricia Kay (Berkley). If youīre a parent, this will scare you to death, like some recent news stories. But Abbie Bernard finds out accidentally that her beloved daughter Kendall couldnīt possibly be her daughter. That discovery sends her searching for her own child. Logan OīConnell is more than a bit skeptical when he learns that his daughter Erin isnīt his, but the two parents want whatīs best for both their daughters. Except that might not be what everyone else wants. Some of the family members in this tale are so familiar, itīs frightening. Wonderfully told, so have your tissues ready. Iīm giving this one four arrows.


Finally this week, we have "Loveīs Labyrinth" by Anne Kelleher (Jove Time Passages). Olivia Lindsley and her best friend Alison OīNeill are traveling through England both for pleasure and work--Olivia is finishing her late fatherīs research. While dressed in costume for a revel on their tour, the pair gets lost in a maze on an ancient estate. When they emerge, they find themselves in 1586, and a plot is afoot to force Lord Nicholas Talcott from his home forever. But Olivia finds that something sheīs done may help that along, changing history, and she must set it right and in doing so, be certain that the man sheīs come to love will not die in the Tower. Very interesting detail, but the story wasnīt convincing for me. This one earns only three of Cupidīs arrows.


Until next week, stay warm and happy reading!
