I like Nora Roberts, but I don't read all of her books. Not all of the subject matter interests me. But I loved the In the Garden trilogy. I read them quite some time ago before the last book was published and I was frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the last one. lol. It was worth the wait.  Enjoy!

My wife enjoyed them. It was the first Nora Roberts she read, and she's hooked now.

I was never able to get into Nora Roberts, that is until The Garden Trilogy.  The third came out just as I finished the second and I was so glad I didn't have to wait.

ok, gonna have to move these up the TBR line1! My faves of hers are the Born In trilogy, esp the 2nd and 3rd though they prettymuch need to be read in order ot get the whole story. Montana Sky was my first 'big'book by her and I liked it as well.

These are some of my favorite Nora Roberts trilogies. I also like the Key ones as well.

I'm glad you enjoyed them! They're in my TBR pile at home. I love 99% of her books, so I was hoping I'd love these ones as well!!

I really enjoyed the In the Garden series too!

Now I am thinking of reading the Sign of Seven trilogy. It looks interesting- have any of you read any of the books in it yet?

1. Blood Brothers (2007)
2. The Hollow (2008)
3. The Pagan Stone (2008)

I have read the first two of the signs of seven trilogy.  I can't wait for the third one.  So far they are really good.  I love almost anything written by  Nora Roberts.  She has a new one coming out called Tribute in July.  It is not in a series but it still looks good!!

I just finished Blood Brothers and really enjoyed it. This was my first Nora Roberts book although I have others in my TBR. I'm now starting The Hollow. I'm sure I'll be anxiously awaiting the final book in the trilogy once I'm done with this one.

I just finished both BLOOD BROTHERS AND THE HOLLOW..they are awesome. I can't wait for the PAGAN STONE to be published.  I am a big Nora Roberts fan.  I have the GARDEN TRILOGY on my shelf waiting for someone to take it home {~0~}

I loved the garden series and if you have not read the key series it's a must read . I have also really enjoyed the Blood Brothers series and can't wait to read the Pagan Stone.

I just finished the second one earlier today and started on the 3rd while my daughter was at gymnastics.

Her other series I have enjoyed, and I can't remember the names of the series at the moment, the one where there were the 4 brothers on the coast and they had a boat building business?

I also really enjoyed the Born In Fire trilogy.

Well, now I'm going to have to order both the In the Garden Trilogy and the Signs of Seven trilogy.  I've never read any Nora Roberts so I'm excited about this!

I loved the Garden Series and the Key Series. I have read one of the Chesepeke Blue Series and have the other's on TBR list. I also have Blood Brothers and am going to bump that one to the next thing I read!!

I have liked every Nora Roberts book I've read, but I have to say I'm not a fan of her J.D. Robb stuff... anyone else?

I have never read anything by J.D. Robb, but it  is not a romance so it's not my cup of tea!!  The Cheasapeke series was really good!!  I have all of that series.    Nora Roberts is one of my favorites.  I also have the Three Sisters Island trilogy.  If anyone wants it, let me know.  Two are paperback and one is hardcover.

I never had any interest in the J.D. Robb series until recently..I downloaded the audio to my mp3 player and was listening to the 1st book and am liking it pretty well. It's diferent.

I havne't kept up with all her paranormal series/trilogies but from what I've read I've enjoyed her Calhoun stories, some of the MacGregor stories, the O'Hurley's, Stars of Mithra..these were all silhouettes I believe. From her 'big' books I was hooked on her from the moment I read Montana Sky! I got it for a friend and read it myself and stayed up nearly all night to finish it! I also love love love the Born In trilogy. The 'dream' trilogy was also good but not my fave. I'm surprised I liked the Key trilogy since I wasn't into paranormal at the time. I still haven't read all the3 sisters about the wtiches on that island yet or all the chesapeake books or the series iwth morrigan's cross or the latest she's done...I also likedHidden Riches but haven't read all the other books yet.
