Bay of Sighs (Guardians Trilogy) - Nora Roberts

I will be using this one to fill the Epiphany book task:

 

Epiphany (January 6): Read a book with three main characters OR a book about traveling on a journey to a faraway place OR a book that’s part of a trilogy OR with a star on the cover OR with the word “twelve” or “night” in the title OR or concerning kings or spices.

 

I will edit in the holiday pic once it's released.

24 Festive Tasks - Armistice Day
A Moveable Feast - Ernest Hemingway
The MacGregor Brides - Nora Roberts
The MacGregor Grooms - Nora Roberts
River's End - Nora Roberts
Public Secrets - Nora Roberts
Rebellion - Nora Roberts

Diwali

 

Book: I had this one already planned and in my hands as I needed to get it through my base library's ILL system. I will be reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. Pray for me....

 

Task #3

I can say that I am definitely a veteran of the works by Nora Roberts/JD Robb. She was my gateway to romance and adult books. I first read NR's The MacGregor Brides when I borrowed it from the public library at age 12. I had already exhausted my library's Sweet Valley High and Babysitters' Club books and nothing really grabbed me. So the librarian, who knew me well as I was at the library every week, decided to hand me this book and the follow up, The MacGregor Grooms. I inhaled these books, reading them a few times all the way through by the time the due date arrived. 

 

From there, I read (out of order) the rest of The MacGregor series (my favorite being Rebellion), then moved on to whatever was available at the library or the used book store (mostly her category romance). During my first deployment, I read River's End and Public Secrets, starting me on her romantic suspense. During my second deployment, I read the first of 47 In Death books. And here I am, 27 years later and still borrowing NR/JD Robb from the library, with a few books on my physical shelf.

Stars of Fortune
Stars of Fortune: Book One of the Guardians Trilogy - Nora Roberts

If you've ever read a Nora Roberts paranormal trilogy, the you know they all tend to follow a certain pattern: Six people (three women and three men) are draw together to stop an evil entity from forever altering the world. Some (if not all) of the six will have supernatural powers, and by the end of the trilogy, the six will be neatly paired off into three couples.

 

It's a formula that's worked for me, even if her later trilogies haven't worked quite as well for me as her earlier ones.

 

This one, though...if the first book is anything to judge by, could end up being one of my favorites.

 

Each one of the six in this book has a supernatural secret. We know straight away that Sasha, the heroine of this book, is a seer. But waiting for the others' secrets to be revealed was lots of fun, even if I'd worked out most of them ahead of time.
