This book has 2 distinct stories in it - one story uses the writing style of Nora Roberts and the other story uses the JD Robb style with Eve and Roarke in it. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book.

Really great idea to have a Nora Roberts and a J. D. Robb continuing story! It was hard to put down. This is the only In Death book I have read out of order, but I had bought it for a friend, then wanted to read it out of curiosity; hoping it was as good as the reviews. It was!

Remember When was pretty good. Part One was Roberts story and it dealt with Laine and Max. Laine's dad is a thief and was involved in a big diamond heist. Max is the investigator hired to recover the stolen diamonds. Laine and Max cross paths when a friend and partner of her dad's contacts her after the crime. I thought the mystery of this story was OK, but I really liked Laine and Max as characters. They were really good people and I was glad they were together. 3.5 stars

Part Two was Robb's story. Laine and Max's granddaughter wrote a book about how they met and their involvement with the diamonds. Not all of the diamonds were recovered and now, 50 years later, someone is killing in order to find them. Once again, the mystery was OK. However, I just love all of the characters in the In Death series. Their interactions keep me interested a lot more than suspenseful aspect of the story. 4 stars

Nora Roberts is good no matter what type of book she writes. As an added bonus, this is part of a futuristic series giving a sneak peek at what technology might be like in the future!

New York Times best-selling, RITA award-winning Nora Roberts teams up with her pseudonymous writing personality, J. D. Robb, in this sexy, suspenseful novel centered on a fortune in stolen diamonds. Roberts begins things in present-day Maryland, where Laine Tavish, owner of an antiques and collectibles store, finds her attempts to erase any connection to her con-man father, Jack O'Hara, threatened when one of her father's "business associates" shows up and is killed in an automobile accident. Her father's involvement in a diamond heist brings not only a cold-blooded murderer to Laine's door but also insurance investigator Max Gannon, who won't rest until he finds the missing jewels. Robb adds a new twist to the tale 50 years in the future when Laine's granddaughter, Samantha Gannon, writes a best-selling book about the diamonds. The murder of Samantha's house-sitter brings Lieutenant Eve Dallas on the scene in search of a killer who will do anything to possess the sparkling stones. Robert's latest is another addictive blend of scintillating prose and sharply etched characters that will dazzle and delight her devoted readers.

** This is a two-part book!**

Part one written by Nora Roberts
Part two written by JD Robb

Both stories connect together!

If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.

I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.

Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):

1 Naked
2 Glory
3 Immortal

5 Ceremony

A two part novel. In part one, you are introduced to Laine Tavish, known to the folks in Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. They have no idea she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'hara. But Laine's past has just caught up with her. Her long lost uncle has visited her shop, leaving a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, Laine's home is ransacked. Now it's up to her and an enigmatic stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why. The answer lies in a hidden fortune that will change Laine's life.

In Part Two, Detective Eve Dallas is on the case in New York City in 2059. The treasure that Laine and Max sought has never been fully recovered. And now someone else is pursuing the missing part...someone who's willing to kill for it.

BOOKLIST REVIEW

From Publishers Weekly: "A perfect marriage of sensuality and suspense, this sparkling new offering from Roberts (Birthright, etc.) and her alter ego, Robb (Imitation in Death, etc.) takes readers on a two-part journey-first to the quaint burg of Angel's Gap, Md., and then to New York City, 56 years in the future. A multimillion-dollar diamond heist connects the two halves and fuels the first story, which focuses on the romance between sexy PI Max Gannon, who's working for the company that insured the diamonds, and smalltown antiques dealer Laine Tavish, daughter of a notorious thief. Laine has worked hard to overcome her heritage, but when her father's best friend is killed outside her shop, she becomes the target of a ruthless killer who thinks she has her father's share of the take. Because the story skips ahead in time, Max and Laine have little time to explore their affection for each other, but Roberts still manages to make their whirlwind romance both believable and charming. A nerve-shattering encounter between Laine and the villain shows Laine to be as capable and crafty as Lt. Eve Dallas, who's the driving force behind the novel's second half. Set in the year 2059, the continuation finds Eve on the trail of a murderer who's after the diamonds that were never recovered from the decades-old heist. Though the identity of the criminal is apparent midway through, Eve's charismatic personality and colorful crew-including her former thief husband, Roarke, and her partner, Peabody-keep the energy level high. A true master of her craft, Roberts has penned an exceptional tale that burns with all the brilliance and fire of a finely cut diamond." Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

In this mystery, written by both Nora Roberts and her alter-ego persona, J.D. Robb, stolen diamonds are the background for two inter-related stories. In part one, Nora Roberts spins a tale about millions of dollars of diamonds, the daughter of a thief, the insurance investigator, the con-man father, and the murdering psychopath hunting them all. In part two, fifty-something years have passed and the action switches from the sleepy Maryland town of the first part to New York. Lt. Dallas begins by investigating a murder during a supposed B & E, but quickly realizes that the current crimes are merely backstory to a search for the remaining quarter of the diamonds missing from the original heist.

*MINOR SPOILER*
I love the aspects of Peabody and Dallas trying to figure out their new partnership!

Really good book! I got it because I adore the J.D Robb series. I have had it forever and never read it because...I don't know, I guess I thought it would just be a short story and wouldn't really be about the 'In Death' series. But that was not true at all and it was great. The first story was good too and the 'In Death' one just continued from it. Very good.

I love this book. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and she is just as good as J. D. Robb. The Eve Dallas series is especially good. This book combines the two works beautifully. I have read it 3 times, and had lost my copy. I had to have it in my collection

2 books in 1; Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb. The first book is set in contemporary time, the second in the future. I believe the first book is a lighter romantic one, the second a little darker in tone.

This is a great book about a a girl who has changed her name because she is the daughter of a notorious con man.

Confusint cover, I didn't want Roberts, but the story was all RRobb.
I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York City is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.
