- Phil in When We Meet, The Law is a Lady
...and I've decided to set aside until more in series gets published.
No fluffy romance here; intense post-plague future tale. Gearing up to be complex with lots of characters, POVs and worldbuilding more in the style of something like King's The Stand.
Not what I am in the mood for on these next two weeks of overcast, rainy days -- but, likely to suck me in if I read further. So, no reflection on what should wind up being a new favorite series -- on hiatus.
I've been wanting to read this one. Nora Roberts is hit or miss with me (sometimes too formulaic or predictable) but I have really enjoyed some of her more fantasy/legend based books. Even my least favorite of her books made for an enjoyable read because well-written; just sometimes disappointingly predictable.
I've finished the Nora Roberts section, moving on to the J.D. Robb part.
I first read this back in 2003--bought it when it first came out--so it's like reading it again for the first time. Which is good.
I'll give the Nora novella 4 stars, even if it did suffer from a huge case of insta-love. The main couple were just so good together, and the Max, our hero, was pretty swoon-worthy. Our heroine, Laine, was pretty damn great, too. When faced with several situations in which she could make TSTL decisions, she didn't. Not once.
