I enjoyed both of these stories. While predictable, they are romantic and comfortable.

In HER MOTHER'S KEEPER, a daughter (Gwen Lacrosse) comes to the rescue of her mother to save her from certain scandal. The only problem is the mother doesn't know she's in danger of being disgraced. The villain (Luke Powers) is a younger man who has been staying in the Lacrosse mansion while he is finishing one of his books.

Set in New Orleans, Nora Roberts definitely gets the Cajon flavor correct with this story. Hot and humid could describe both the environment and the feelings Gwen develops for Luke. How does a daughter stop thinking romantic thoughts about her mother's boyfriend? Luke is her mother's liaison, or is it wishful thinking that they really are only friends?

Roberts bounces the reader back and forth on that perspective - is he or isn't he - only the mother knows for sure (and of course Luke, but he's not saying!). Ok, charming, but brainless, is a better description for this one, but I can't resist since it was so cute!

HER MOTHER'S KEEPER is a story with an exotic flare, pure romance, but mostly filled with humor. Nora Roberts shows that you can laugh at yourself in almost any situation!
