Remember When by Nora Roberts

Remember When by Nora Roberts

My Rating: 10 *'s

Description: Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law....

Laine's past has just caught up with her, thought -- in a very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why.

The answer lies in a hidden fortune -- a fortune that will change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future generations. And danger and death will surround that fortune for years to come. Until New York City detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets the case.

A thrill- ride of a novel that blends present-day romance and futuristic suspense, REMEMBER WHEN is a tale of deceit and secrets, of strong women and fascinating men -- a brilliant combination of the incomparable talents of the two sides of Nora Roberts.

My Thoughts: A very intriguing tale where the past, present and future collide to solve a decades old jewel heist and the diamonds that were unrecovered. Eve is in top form as usual, though only a portion of the book features her, and Roark is fabulous as always. No Somerset this go round, but that's OK.

I liked Laine and Max in the present day and enjoyed seeing them again as well as the introduction of their granddaughter, Samantha in the future. The smoothness of the transition in time periods made me feel like a time traveler.

My only problem with this story was that there wasn't enough Eve and Roark, but then I can't have everything now can I?
