This book is in my top 10 best books I have ever read. I am not a big Nora Roberts fan I'm sorry to say and I have been upset that I have not liked any of her other books as much as I have loved this one. I want to buy this in hard cover one day so I always have it. I read it at least once a year! Tucker is always waiting for me. lol

I thought I knew "who done it" several different times throughout the novel but then had to change my mind. Even though it's an older book of Nora Roberts, it's still a great read.

Loved this book! Nora gets the atmosphere in a small southern town exactly right - and of course, the imagery is perfect, as always. I swear, the humidity rose off the page to frizz my hair! (OK, that could've also been because I didn't use any conditioner...) You have a murderer (what else?) on the loose, a concert violinist who settles into her grandmother's old house - partly to get away from her control freak mother; and a son of the local owns-half-the-town, been-there-forever family who is not only supremely hot, but also the number-one suspect (according to the FBI agent brought in from out of town to help solve the murders - and who also just happens to have the hots for our lovely violinist). Of course, it's all wrapped up in a great love story, with a twist at the end. Fabulous!

This was a good book; I liked the mystery and intrigue that tied the story together. Not as good as some of her newer work (this was originally released in 1991) but I still enjoyed it very much. Caro and Tucker were well developed and multi-layered, complex even. I would have liked to see some actual resolution with Caroline's mother/family/Luis. A little too much foreshadowing regarding "who done it" but there was enough possible twist that you had to stick with it until the very end.

Another great Nora Roberts book. A little much on the sex stuff, but otherwise a great read.

I truly do enjoy Nora Roberts books, however this one is more like her JD Robb releases.
