Classic Nora Roberts - a wonderful "gotcha" story that keeps you involved to the very end. This audio book is FIFTEEN hours long! A real treat for anyone who likes to listen!
Once again,Roberts delivers unforgettable characters, unlikely new twists and phenomenal descriptive narration. Ryan Boldari is one of the most adorable characters she's written, even though he's a thief he's an irristiable one. Wonderful layering, great secondary stories -
Abridged/2 Cassettes/Approx 3 Hours.
Dr. Miranda Jones is called to Italy to secure the authenticity of a valuable Renaissance sculpture. There she meets a gorgeous art thief. But when dangerous sparks of passion begin to fly, Miranda finds herself in more trouble than she'd packed for.
"Homeport" tells the story of Dr. Miranda Jones, a cold-on-the-outside but warm-on-the-inside art historian whose family name is synonomous with art and relics. Her parents are cold and remote, but all the same she has entered the family business and has carved out a name of her own. Into this scenario steps Ryan Boldari, a handsome, charming, family man who happens to be an art thief. Together he and Miranda must find out who is trying to steal a priceless statue and ruin the Standford-Jones reputation.
This book provided a wonderful romantic story, with a strong heroine and an equally strong (not sappy) hero in Ryan. Some of the most heartwarming parts were the most realistic -- Ryan taking Miranda home to dinner with his family, Miranda simultaneously heartbroken for and furious at her alcoholic brother Andrew
Slow start, but then it gets good. Great who-did-it, that keeps you guessing until the end.
Intrigue abounds in a fast-paced tale laced with larceny and love.
Good. But not as good as some of Nora's books.
