I loved this book. Honest Illusions follows a family of magicians -- no, you don't learn any magic tricks or secrets! -- who have an interesting side job. And there's just enough mystery and intrigue to keep you reading until you're done with it!

I've read this book too many times to count. It's beautifully written with a sweeping story and characters who you will never forget. So inspiring and lush in detail, I grabbed my DH and off we went to New Orleans. By far, Nora's best work - when she was at the peak of her creative ability.

Another great story by Nora! I'd love to hear her mention the main characters (Luke Callahan and Roxanne Nouvelle) and their magic store in New Orleans in some of her other stories.

The basic storyline is Max Nouvelle and his 9-year-old daughter, Roxanne, are magicians in a travelling carnival when they meet 12-year-old runaway and pickpocket, Luke Callahan. Luke is mesmerized by Max and by his magic tricks and eventually joins the family and becomes a magician too. The story progresses as the two children grow up and eventually fall in love.

An interesting story but a little hard to swallow but then you're reading it for fun, not analysis.

One of my favorite Nora Roberts books! This one involves a family of magicians who moonlight as sophisticated jewelry thieves. Lots of great dialog, a good mystery, a well-developed plot - what's left ?!?

THIS IS ANOTHER WONDERFUL BOOK OF NORA ROBERTS
ANOTHER OF HER MUST READ
reviewed Honest Illusions on + 534 more book reviews
Roberts ( Hot Ice ; Sacred Sins ) combines conventional elements--sizzling sex, a cunning villain, a captivating story, some tugs at the heartstrings--then adds a twist (the good guys are criminals), and the result is spellbinding. Max Nouvelle is the patriarch of a family of magicians and jewel thieves made up of Lily, his partner in love; Roxanne, his headstrong, beautiful daughter; and Luke, the abused runaway Max had taken in years ago, now a charming young man. They join Max in elaborate performances onstage and in equally elaborate robberies. For years Roxanne and Luke battle constantly, but as young adults they finally realize they are deeply in love. Luke, haunted by the fear that his past will hurt his adopted family, is the target of coldblooded Sam Wyatt, driven by a vow of revenge on the Nouvelles. Luke returns from a forced five-year disappearance for the biggest performance of the Nouvelles' career--a simultaneously executed grand heist and act of vengeance. Although Roberts's deft narrative shows occasional excesses (mostly of description and stereotypical characterizations), none of these will deter the reader from taking this diverting journey into a world of magic, passion and mystery. BOMC featured alternate.
