Really fun addition to the Nora library with a quirky heroine. Between her interesting job (house-sitting) and the mystery investigation, we get to tour a bit of NYC and Florence, Italy. Art, a tasty bakery, cute pets, and a secondary love story make this a definite keeper. Did I mention the stone cold killer? Plus, if Nora ever wrote the teen paranormal werewolf series her heroine is writing, I'd read it.

Nora Roberts once again delivered with her story of romance and danger. The characters were awesome with a story full of depth. You can never go wrong with Nora.

I love storylines set against interesting places. It's like taking a vacation. This is a romantic suspense full of interesting characters, the main one being free-spirit Lila who enjoys her chosen profession that allows her new adventures. Her latest adventure is of a sleuth. Riveting and fun.

The beginning of the book was interesting,as the story progressed I found myself skimming paragraphs &then pages. Much of the store was just too far fetched...disapointing to say the least for Nora Roberts

This story is one of my (many) favorites of Ms. Roberts, and it held my interest until the very last word. The characters are memorable, the locations and twists are exciting, the writing is superb. Thank you for this gift of entertainment through another episode of a personal growth-spurt, during which a lovely distraction was a blessing!

Enjoyed the action and characters very much. Love Lila and bet she would make good TV movie character along with her friends!

Great storyline, captivating characters with a twist of intrigue, romance and mystery, The Collector by Nora Roberts is an absorbing novel that will profusely delight fans of the author and cements Robert’s status as one of the most dependable writers of our time. The Collector follows Lila Emerson, a professional house-sitter and an emerging author, who is currently working on her second novel which is part of a series primarily designed for young adults. Working in an apartment in Chelsea, New York, gives her perfect view of the building directly opposite, and its diverse and varied occupants. With a binocular at hand, she spends much time studying the people, hoping to find inspiration for the characters in her book. What she didn’t realize is that knowing what’s going-on in those apartments will ultimately draw her into a whirlpool of deceit and danger, if nothing else. Her daily observation draws her to a young couple occupying a particular apartment, and keeping a watch on them one evening resulted in a totally unsettling view as a heated argument between the couple resulted in the woman being pushed out of the window of their fourteenth floor apartment, plunging to her death onto the pavement below. Horrified by what she witnessed, Lila informed the police whose investigation led to the discovery of the dead body of the young man as well inside the apartment, an apparent case of suicide. But Ashton Archer, the brother of the deceased young man who is identified as Oliver, is far from convinced. He refused to believe that his brother is capable of such ghastly murder and then taking his own life. As Lila is the sole witness to the crime, he enlisted her help in getting to the bottom of the matter. As the two investigated the case, they stumbled on a world of antiquities and crimes covered in a web of lies, deceit, and greed spanning many decades, and as they dig deeper, their own lives are threatened even as they get close to each other. With powerful network of operators up against them, will the two unravel the whole mystery surrounding the death of the young couple? How are they connected to the crime syndicate? The Collector is a gripping romantic suspense novel by Nora Roberts with doses of humor peppered all over. Readers will enjoy this dramatic and intense story which has characters that are truly fascinating. You will feel a tinge of sadness to reach the end of the story as this is one which you’ll want to go on and on, and on.

Not up to her usual standard. I found it boring and I skipped ahead a bunch of pages just to get to the end faster. It didn't hold my interest. Had a hard time staying focused. Kind of an unbelievable story line

This was a good read and I really enjoyed it last year.  Today, I was browsing new books, and see what I thought was NEW Nora Roberts book.  The publication date listed is 3/3/15, yet the customer reviews begin a full year before that date.  Barnes & Noble, PLEASE be more honest with those dates.  Some of us who read and purchase many books end up buying two copies of the same book.  I'd greatly appreciate Barnes & Noble being honest on the release dates of their products.

Beside the fact that there was a murder, which was interesting .... The main characters are all good looking all have talent, and have money ...... none of the four have any major flaw..A little to much like a fairy tale

A really great story! One of Nora's best (and I've been a fan for years). Now if only she could make her trilogy books less predictable :(

Disappointing. I always buy Nora Roberts books and usually read multiple times. This one is boring, predictable and forgettable....hopefully it is just a fluke.

Nora does it again. She builds these great characters and a great storyline that has you turning pages as fast as you can go.

A little slow, but pretty good.

I enjoyed the story though it dragged for me in the last quarter of the book. I became impatient for it to get wrapped up with bringing the villains to justice, though I did enjoy the spunk and feisty attitude Lila demonstrates when faced with a choice to fight back or surrender. I normally enjoy this author’s writing and though this book is not completely horrible, if you are looking for more suspense and action, I recommend The Witness.
