Unfinished Business by Nora Roberts - My Thoughts
Unfinished Business - Nora Roberts

This is an early Nora, a Silhouette reprint from 1992 and boy, does it show. 

The hero, Brady, is a tad overbearing for this day and age, the plot is somewhat dated and the actual writing... OMG, the HEAD-HOPPING!!!  It's so bad... it's SO SO SO bad.  I don't remember any Nora being this full of mexican jumping bean POVs. 

It didn't help that I didn't like the heroine.  She just rubbed me the wrong way. I found her rather self-centred and whiny which, I suppose, is what I'm supposed to feel because she's a high-strung concert pianist, but man... I really didn't like her. 

Anyway, this Nora was a disappointment to me.  I usually enjoy Nora's earlier work but this one... nope.  I guess it's the exception that proves the rule?

Great Story and Characters
Unfinished Business - Carolyn Ridder Aspenson

Angela’s mother Fran had passed away. But her mother’s scent was still on the hospice bed. Than Angela heard her mother call and saw her in the same nightgown she passed away in. Fran told Angela she had told her if she could come back she would and there she was. Angela told her she should have went through the light. Fran said there was a light and she would go back to itbut she had some stuff to down here first.  She also said she had some unfinished business but wouldn’t say what. Than she told Angela to sit up and listen to her It was important. Angela is married to jake and they have two kids- Emily who was fifteen and Josh who was ten. Fran dying had really messed with Angela’s brain. Carolyn and Jake went to the funeral home and was met there by her two brothers John and Paul. Carolyn ended up taking control of the meeting. Fran came to Angela again late that night. To angela Fran embodied strength both mentally and physically. It had been heartbreaking to watch the cancer destroy her mom. Fran advised Angela to leave the past in the past and get along better with her brothers. Angela told Fran that she is talking bs as patrince was never one of Fran’s virtues and forgiveness wasn’t in Frans vocabulary. Than Fran wasn’t around for days. On the way to Chicago to Fran’s memorial and burial with her parents Josh said grandma said she didn’t want Uncle John screwing up burying her in Chicago and he said Fran had told him last night. Angela and Fran make sure Emily is safe when issues are revealed. Fran somehow kicked a psychic ability in Angeal and now she saw dead people everywhere. Angela is now a medium even if she wasn’t too happy about it and a ghost whisper as Fran pushes Angela to help those who haven’t moved on.

I loved this book. Even though the subject of a dead parent is a tough subject Fran becoming a ghost  was a big part of this book but was done in such a way that is just right and you can still enjoy the story and not be depressed while reading it. I loved Fran i just got a kick out of her. I loved Angela and Mels relationship and how she was there for Angela. I also loved Angela and Jake had a strong marriage with no cheating or abuse after several years. I loved how the author brought up several issues realistically. I laughed at different times while reading this. I loved the plot and pace. To me this was just a great enjoyable book and I was glad to have been given the chance to read it. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.

good book and characters
Unfinished Business - Carolyn Ridder Aspenson

Angela loves her husband , she has a teenage daughter -Emily- and a young son-Josh, a best friend-Mel- sick father, and the ghost of her dead mother. Angel has a fairly normal family with normal family drama and issues. After her mother-Fran- died Angela is devastated but then she finds out her mom   won’t go to the light and appears to Angela and Angela thinks she is going crazy. . Angel’s husband was the love of her life. HAer mother and Angela makes sure Emily os OK when there is some serious danger to her. Fran isn’t the only ghost that appears to Angela and they obviously see Angela who can help them get closure on their human life. Fran pushes Angela to help the ghosts and offers her advice. Fran tells Angela she has unfinished business and she came back to help Angela. Angela’s dog Gracie and young son Josh can see Fran also. Angela gets use to seeing her mom;s ghost and her ability also grows and now she sees ghosts wherever she goes and Angela feels the responsibility to try to help the ghosts.

I enjoyed this book I liked Angela and her family.and how they normal they are other than Angela seeing first her mother’s ghost then other dead people’s ghost. I think this should have been in Angela’s POV. I liked that Angela freaked out a little when she seen her mother's ghost and then there ghost. I liked the author handled the problem of drugs and peer pressure. I choked up at ties while reading this. I love hoe Angela and Mel interacted with each other. I really liked the plot. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and recommend it.

Author: Carina Adams
Genre: MC Romance

“Passionate, gritty, and emotionally gripping! Carina Adams returns to her writing roots and delivers one hell a phenomenal story!” - Read and Share Book Review
“I'm not sure what I was expecting going in to this books. But it surely wasn't this beautiful masterpiece!” - Linda from Goodreads
“I was completely and utterly blown away by this book.” - Melissa from Goodreads
 
 
 
 
The Bastards of Boston live in a world most don't understand. They follow their own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents they protect, and the people they couldn't save.

As president of the Bastards MC, Robert Doyle is the man behind it all. It’s his responsibility to keep his club safe, to be the smartest man in the room, and be ten steps ahead of everyone. He’d give everything he had, and sell his soul to the devil, to protect the ones he loves. 
Until Rocker comes face-to-face with the pain he thought he’d buried. Old wounds are ripped open. Revenge consumes him. Once again he’s the teenager desperate to avenge his daughter’s murder and nothing else matters.
He calls me his angel, but the halo I wear caught fire a long time ago. There is no line I won’t cross, no law I won’t break. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I’ll happily burn.
When past and present collide, we’re in for one hell of a bumpy ride.
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying this is a first time author for us and we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.
 
Just wow ! What a complicated story with depth and so many levels to it.I love story with a complicated history.The story was filled with death,destruction,sexual abuse and so much more.
 
The characters were engaging and love-able as well as like-able.I have to say that there was a whole lot of drama that was going on in this club along with their women.It was engaging and kept you engrossed and turning the pages.
 
I normally pick a favorite character in a story but this time around it was just to hard to.All the main characters had such tragic lives that it was impossible for you not to feel their pain and have your heart bleed for each and everyone of them.
 
Cris although was a favorite of mine .The things that she survived were horrific but she did so much to overcome her pain and suffering.We saw her become and strong & feisty and determined women .I loved everything she had become.I loved the lengths she went to protect those she loved.
 
This was not your typical MC romance and this author has a different style of writing that I had to warm up to but , she wrote and engrossing story with characters that had you feeling all kinds of emotions like happiness and sadness and everything in between.We loved it.
 
Looking so forward to reading the two books that came before this one.I will say that I wish I had read the previous books first as Rocker and Cris had so much history together and separately before this story that things would have clicked into places quicker but that does not mean I didn't catch on.
 
A tragic love story filled with so much pain and suffering but second chances and happily ever afters.We love when you can connect with the characters you read about and I was able to do that with these characters as you could not help but be drawn to them from the onset of the story.In doing so It made for a fantastic read for us.
 
A recommend read to all but would recommend reading previous books in series first.
 
5 stars from us
 
 
 
 
 
An avid reader who loves epic and unconventional romance, Carina has an unhealthy obsession with Jason Statham, loves the sounds of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, is the crazy friend your mom warned you about, and believes one day she will go through the stones to meet Jamie Fraser. 
Carina has been writing and creating characters for as long as she can remember, allowing her to fall in love with the next man of her dreams with every new story. None of which are anything like boring Prince Charming. Thankfully, fate stepped in and granted her the ultimate wish - a life full of men. Carina lives in a picturesque New England town with her husband, the man who ruined the thought of all others, and two amazing sons who always keep her on her toes.

Gabriel's Angel & Unfinished Business by Nora Roberts
Gabriel's Angel - Nora Roberts
Unfinished Business (Silhouette Intimate Moments #433) - Nora Roberts

GABRIEL'S ANGEL

She almost crashes into him on a snowy road, he offers her temporary shelter in his cabin, discovers she’s pregnant, and on the run. To protect her, he decides to marry her, delivers the baby, and slays her dragons.


Sheesh. Far from Nora Roberts’s best work. Slow and as annoying as the heroine, with a bland hero, an unbelievable (in this day, but maybe it worked when it was written) premise and even more unbelievable romance and insta-love.

 

 

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

She left town when she was sixteen, traveled the world with her father, became a famous pianist...Now, a few months after her father's death, she's back in her hometown, living with the mother who supposedly hadn't wanted anything to do with her in the past years, and falling all over again for the man who abandoned her.


It was a nice story, with lovely secondary cast, lovely secondary romance, a lovely small-town setting, and a very lovely leading man.
Pity the heroine ruined everything. Rather self-centered, with a penchant of sticking her head in the sand, blaming pretty much everybody but the person who was responsible for her leaving, for her mother "abandonment", her crush supposedly dumping her.

I didn't understand her, I didn't get her reasoning, and I couldn't have cared less about what happened to her. Pity she was the heroine.
