I love Nora Robert's books and read every one. I like the stand alone ones better than the series books.
I was slightly disappointed with this one, it's a little slow, but I loved the hunky, sexy artist, Aston Archer. Eventually the book moved at a better pace and I ended up totally enjoying it.

Lila, Ash, Julie, and Luke make up our cast of heroine, hero, BFF, and best buddy. I want Lila's job - especially if dogs like Earl Grey pop up in the nick of time to charm a ditzy socialite and foil a kidnapping attempt. However, Lila is handy to have around. I wanna meet the person who can diassemble a LoJack, tackle a faux paint job, and still spend only 2-3 hours a day writing a novel.

This book really renews my faith in Nora Robert's writing and at least this editing staff! The story line flows at her usual style. The dialogue fits with the upper crust New Yorkers that populate this book. I appreciate a likable art gallery manager, and her sinfully decadent bakery owner. I like Ash and his wonderfully confusing clan of step's and half siblings and assorted relative from his parents' marriages. We only get to meet a few of them, but s few of them seem interesting enough for their own (short?) stories.

At first I really didn't want to like this book as it was darker than books I like to read for pleasure, but when Nora starts spinning a tale, there's just no doubt that there's magic in her pen. She has a talent that just goes beyond boundaries to me. Even if you hate some of the things in the story, she is just so good at what she does that she has you hooked to where you don't want to close the covers of her books, ever.. This one is no exception!
