This book was first published in May of 1984. It's a bit misleading for B&N to show a publishing date of Sept, 2013. I realize that's when the e-book was released. But, full disclosure would be nice.

Like several others I want to protest B&Ns republishing of books as ebooks without admitting the ORIGINAL publication date. I am unwilling to buy a book if I even suspect it may be republished. You are loosing sales by this tactic.

You can tell this is rather dated (1984) from the first couple of pages because of the references to smoking and typewriters. It would have been nice if it had been updated before putting it out there again, with a date of 9/13, making it sound like a new book. That said, this book was worth reading again. It has a New York cop, an antiques dealer, a steamy love affair, friends, betrayal, attempted murder, smuggling, and diamonds. This book is reminiscent of a later book (one of my all time favorites) “Remember When”. If you have never read A Matter of Choice, you’ll enjoy it, if you’ve read it before, try it again.

Barnes and Noble,: Please let your customers know that this book is a reprint.  An accurate copyright would be helpful!!

This boois decades-old. Nora's writing style has changed with the times, but her books are still a good "read". Why not give accurate info, B & N?

I am a fan of Nora Roberts, and one of the things that I think makes her a good author is her ability to keep her writing current. By using current slang, trends, etc., it makes the story more authentic. Because of her style of writing, however, it's clear that this book was written about 10 years ago. Heavy smoking is the norm, they use Walkmans instead of iPods, and there are other minor details that date the story. That being said, I still think it's a story worth reading. She still weaves an interesting story, but I think her writing has improved over the years, so while I liked it, it is not one of my favorite novels by Nora Roberts.

I have all of Nora's books and i hate that B&N does not list the actual release date! After reading so many books, its hard to remember a book you read 10 years ago to a tee! I always have to really think back to remember for sure. Still a great book that i would reread many times, but not fair to consumers B&N!!!

Ripped off, misled and disallusioned.  Will be more careful in the future and not trust B&N's publicaton dates.

I was very disappointed. The characters were not interesting or well developed and the plot was weak.

I have read all of Nora Roberts books. I have a list of all I have read, so when a new e-book comes out I check my list to see if I have read it. I do this with all my favorite authors, James Patterson, Danielle Steel and Nicholas Sparksand a few more.I keep my list handy when I order a new book or e book

I enjoyed the big tuff cop that was afraid to show any emotion to anyone then along came Jessica and Slade was a goner. The book was a very enjoyable as a Nora Roberts book always is.
