In true Nora Roberts fashion, the book is predictable. However, it's a great read. The first half, is a page turner with its suspense but in the second half of the book, not so much. However I have enjoyed NR's latest two books (This and The Search). The one thing I like about Nora Robert's books, especially this one, is, I can see who would make good actors for each role. This book definitely would make a great chick movie.
