Nora Roberts Land
Journalist Meredith Hale’s ex-husband claimed her Nora Roberts addiction gave her unrealistic expectations about marriage, and she believed him. All dreams of happily ever after—or Nora Roberts Land as her mother calls it—went up in smoke. But when her family asks her to temporarily help their Dare Valley, Colorado newspaper, she decides it’s time to change her life and prove her ex wrong. She’s determined to find her own small-town Nora Roberts hero, prove that true love exists, and publish a story about her quest.
War correspondent Tanner McBride has just returned stateside to work for a major newspaper, and the last thing he expects is blackmail. Yet, before he can even unpack, he’s headed to Colorado. His assignment? Make his boss’s ex-wife fall for him and then break her heart. Her article about discovering love à la Nora might air dirty laundry about her marriage to the media mogul, threatening his senate run. The mogul wants Meredith stopped, and he makes sure Tanner has no choice in the matter.
When the two meet, the sparks between them are undeniable. Meredith, who vowed never to date another journalist, begins to succumb. Could Tanner be her Nora Roberts hero? As they work together to uncover the truth behind a suspicious death, the depth of their feelings unfolds and both realize they’ve kept their secrets for far too long. But before the truth can be revealed, their investigation takes a deadly turn, one that might make Meredith’s personal Nora Roberts Land go up in flames.
MY REVIEW :
Narrated by: Em Eldridge - My first audio book read by this narrator ... I liked her voice!
She really brought the characters to life
Each female character had enough distinction that I could tell them apart ... however, her male reads, except Grandpa Hale, sounded the same, that was confusing but hey! I would have the same male voice too ... lol
The Story ~ Nora Roberts Land is written by Ava Miles and the audio book is 11 hrs and 22 mins (isn't that awesome???)
I have never read a Nora Roberts book! ~GASP~ I know, but it's the truth ... I have never read one and I am not sure if it's just the overwhelming selection or because my book store never carried any that particularly pulled me in and so over the years I stopped looking ...whatever it was, I just over looked her books on the bookstore shelves
Why did I pick this book to listen to? Well, I was curious of course!
Why did someone want to write a story about/around an authors books? What kind of author inspires such a book? Why Nora Roberts?
and since I had no experience with Nora Roberts I thought ... LET'S FIND OUT!
I REALLY enjoyed this book ... from start to finish
and while it only touched on glimpses into Nora's books it's enough that I am going to search her books to find one for me!
The book was full of charm and lovely characters (I love Jill BTW)
There was enough mystery and thrills to keep it exciting
Sexy, sweet, romantic, thrilling, delightful
Oh how I hated the Ex husband (who likes them anyways?) What an A**
Although, I didn't understand Tanner's dedication to protecting his brother ... GAH! He's an adult, let him make his mistakes ... but that wouldn't lend to a good story now would it!
Jill Hale, the sister, is everything I want in a sister/friend ... I can't wait for her story!
Worth Reading or listening too ...
THANK YOU Ava Miles for a glimpse into Nora Roberts and her fans ;)
What do you recommend I start with?
