I love a mystery and a good romance, this book intertwines both. I feel this is one of the best books Nora Roberts has written. Her family dynamics are expressed with great feeling, pulling the reader into the emotions of her writing. This is a difficult book to put down until the last page has been turned.

It is a shame that a book as wonderful as Birthright has such a horrible narrator like Bernadette Quigley. I had the unfortunate chance to hear Ms. Quigley on the Three Fates audio and it was done so poorly, I actually returned it to the store. I didn¿t check to see who was reading Birthright, much to my chagrin. Ms. Quigley does not seem to have a range of voices to pull from, such as a fellow reader of Nora Roberts, Sandra Burr. In this reading Jake sounds like an eighty year old man and it¿s actually kinda creepy. Most of the male characters all have the same `voice¿ and you aren¿t sure who is supposed to be talking until their name is spoken. Ms. Quigley does an excellent job of reading Callie. She uses just the right amount of sarcasm in her voice and Lana is pretty well done too, but beyond that, it¿s terrible. I HIGHLY recommend the book, but stay far away from the audio!

    Not the best she has written

    I found the mail character unlikable. Roberts tried to pull too many subplots together and it doesn't work well.

    Wait for the paperback...

    This book is good, but not one of Roberts' best. The storyline was suspenseful and very heart-wrenching, but I did not find the heroine very likable. I found myself caring more about the secondary, female character in the book, Lana, instead of Callie. Callie seemed pretty 'standoffish' to me, which was understandable, BUT only to a certain point. The book is worth the price of a paperback, but I wouldn't rush to buy the hardcover.
