I liked this book. It was, in my opinion, a whole lot better than Black Hills. It was a fun romance, mystery novel. I thought, in comparison to her last few books, that this was a nice return to the normal Nora Roberts books. Sure, the story lines can be somewhat predictable, but who cares. She has a wonderful writing style that sucks you into the characters and the story and you don't want to put it down. Definitely a good summer read!

A disappointing read from a good author

I found the abundant profanity to be a turnoff and added nothing to the story's plot or characters and in fact was a distraction to an otherwise fairly good read. The ending was weak and diappointing. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Boring

    I found this book boring, too much about dogs and not enough character and plot development. Definitely inferior to Nora's earlier novels.

    I have read many of Nora Robert's books and this one wasn't my favorite. However, I did enjoy the humor and the characters in the book but it was rather boring in my opinion. Slow start and not enough action. Roberts builds up her audience for a showdown between Fiona and RSK2 that never happened. Too many dog training tips and the ending was predictable and disappointing!!!

    Not great

    I don't know why I keep buying Nora Roberts novels. I am usually disappointed. This was not an exception. I really did not like the main characters and the plot was just okay. It was very easy to read and I was finished in a matter of days but I was not hanging on the end of every page. If you are a Nora Roberts fan, I'm sure you'll enjoy it but if you have never read her before, don't start with this book.
