Great Story and Characters
Birthquake - B.L. Berry,Jennifer Roberts... Birthquake - B.L. Berry,Jennifer Roberts-Hall

Jeff met Henley on a plane.  As they talked they found out they both lived in Kansas City. Jeff is a software engineer and Henley is a sixth grade teacher. Jeff can’t seem to say a full normal sentence to Henley he just gets tongue tied or what he is trying to say comes out wrong. Jeff does manage to ask Henley out and she told him to call when they both get back to Kansas City her and gives him her number. Henley’s best friend is Tara. Tara was married and had triplets who were toddlers. She also had a very quirky way of saying things.  Then before she knows it Henley and Jeff have been seeing each other for almost five months. Tara knows how hard it is for Henley to open up about her relationships. Henley has been a lot more guarded since Her ex Leo and Henley broke up. Jeff asks Henley to his brother’s Chris’s wedding. At the same time Henley could meet Jeff’s family. Then Henley finds out Jeff comes from a rich family and is even more nervous. After Chris’s wedding Henley finds out she is pregnant but Jeff is very sweet and they are both happy and excited about the baby even if they haven’t been together that long. Henley knows she has hit the jackpot for boyfriends. The relationship has its hurdles but Jeff and Henley but Jeff and Hanley are sure of their love for each other.

I absolutely adored this story. I have children so I remember the pregnancies and births and the time right after. This was very realistic as fas as I am concerned. This had regular situation and emotions pregnant women can go through. This made me laugh out loud a lot and that is very rare for me but very good and doesn’t happen very often.  This was well written and a heartwarming fun read. I loved how Tara was there for Henley. Everyone should have a Tara as a best friend in their life.  I absolutely love Jeff  and Henley together right from the beginning.  I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.

Reading Update for Black Rose: Made me laugh
Black Rose - Nora Roberts

Black Rose
by Nora Roberts

Progress:  25 of 355 pages (7%)

 

Just now, it looked as if he hadn't shaved in the past few days, so there was a dark stubble toughening his face.  His bottle-green eyes appeared both tired and harassed.  His hair needed a trim.

He was dressed much like the first time she'd met him, in old jeans and rolled-up shirtsleeves.  Unlike hers, his basket was empty.

"Help me," he said in the tone of a man dangling from a cliff by a sweaty grip on a shaky limb.

"I'm sorry?"

"Six-year-old girl.  Birthday.  Desperation."


I don't know why, but this passage made me laugh out loud.  I probably needed something silly and light-hearted after the chaos that was The Thin Man, and my so far frustrating progress in Dear Maggie.

Looks like Nora Roberts is a great cure-all.

The image of this scholarly professor of genealogy getting overwhelmed by a birthday present for a six-year-old girl was too amusing not to giggle about.  I do believe that he had appeared to us in the last book as an arrogant know-it-all professor who was secretly amused by the Harper household's claim about the authenticity of the Harper Bride--then promptly got schooled when he saw her for himself.

Even though Roz has already met Dr. Carnegie, this felt like an even more adorable "Meet Cute."

Naked in Death by J.D. Robb
Naked in Death - J.D. Robb

A high-end prostitute, and a senator's granddaughter, is found dead in her bedroom. She was shot three times (in the head, the heart and the groin), her body obscenely arranged on her bed. The case goes to Lieutenant Eve Dallas, the murdered woman's familial ties demanding utmost secrecy proving quite a challenge in catching her murderer.

And then, another prostitute is murdered, with an identical MO...


This was a bit different from her NR ventures into romantic suspense; first because it's set in the future (nice world building) and second, because it was grittier without the usual flourishes and poetic descriptions.

The heroine was familiar, though, prickly, self-sufficient, stubborn, independent... But needing someone to anchor her, to care for her, to care about her.
The hero was also familiar with that special combination of alpha and beta, confident in his "masculinity" to let the heroine lead, determined to be there for her no matter how hard she pushed him away.
I loved both Eve and Roarke and they were absolutely perfect together. No wonder this series is so long with two strong protagonists to lead.

The mystery was intriguing and gripping, the pace absolutely spot on, the suspense engaging, the truth (when revealed) chilling and a real surprise, since I didn't see it coming...

Amazing characters, wonderful romance and great suspense. What more could anyone want?

Witches Square Read
Anita - Keith Roberts

This is a charming book. It isn't a novel, more a collection of interlinked short stories about the witch Anita. Anita lives with her Granny (who is a forerunner of Granny Weatherwax). The stories cover a wide range of themes, including pollution and urban development. But at the heart there is always sense of humor and beauty. It is impossible not to like Anita and her surrondings.

Waiting
Waiting For Nick (Silhouette Special Edition #1088-reprint) - Nora Roberts

This is book # 5 in The Stanislaskis: Those Wild Ukrainians series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and understanding - and to avoid spoilers - I recommend reading this great series in order.

 

Frederica AKA "Fred" is still waiting.  Waiting for Nick to see her as a grown up, as a woman.  She is tired and thinks it is time she takes matters into her own hands.

 

Nick met Fred's family as a teen.  He loves them and would do nothing to hurt them.  So these new feelings for Fred are not welcome.  He just cannot stop them.

 

I re-read this story at least once a year.  I decided it is high time I give it the review it deserves.  This series is amazing.  The family makes it so fun to read.  These characters are meant to be together and I love reading the way they fall toward one another.  Just another great book from a fabulous author!   I think everyone should read this series!!  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
