Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law . . . Laine's past has just caught up with her, though-in a very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why. The answer lies in a hidden fortune-a fortune that will change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future generations. And danger and death will surround that fortune for years to come. Until New York City detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets on the case. A thrill-ride of a novel that blends present-day romance and futuristic suspense, Remember When is a tale of deceit and secrets, of strong women and fascinating men-a brilliant combination of the incomparable talents of the two sides of Nora Roberts.

Hot Rocks - Nora Roberts I read Big Jack because I'm currently trying to make my way through the In Death series by JD Robb, but I didn't realize that there was a beginning part to this story. If you have read Remember When by Nora Roberts and JD Robb (who are the same person) then you have alr...
Part one of this romantic suspense was set in current day and part two is fifty years later. The first story with the romance was pretty good but I got bored with the second half which was just continued crime solving without romance. Laine gets drawn into a theft that might involve her father and...
I really hated the heroine at first, but then she smartened up enough for me to not hate her. Unfortunately, then I kinda hated everyone else. I wouldn't say there's anything wrong with this story, but I just didn't dig it much. I'm not sure why, but I'm just kinda "meh" about it.
I liked the first half of this but the second half dragged and felt a little slow. The descriptions were a bit heavy and it read more like a screenplay in parts rather than a novel. I did enjoy the premise but it probably could have been a very sharp short story or filled out with a little more goin...
