I thought this was another great read from Nora Roberts.From the outside, everything looked perfect, but sometimes there are monsters where you’d least expect.1998 -It's two days before Christmas and Eliza Bigelow has just had a lovely lunch with friends. Eliza is happily married to Graham, the chief surgical resident of Mercy Hospital....

    4.5 starsYES YES YES!!!This book checked all of my boxes.I read it over three days, and I WISHED I could have curled up on a Saturday and read it all in one piece. This book deserves your uninterrupted attention - that's how good it was.First of all, at 17% I already teared up.The book was a motional powerhouse, well written, and as always very well plotted, Under Currents was one of my favorite Nora Roberts books to date.Different than other boo...

    Oh man! Don't read this if you are sensitive to abuse. All abuse. This book has more triggers than a gun show.Not that kind of gun show! Although that does trigger me. Read a book, dude! Stop being a douche!That metaphor worked so well that I will also tell you that this book has more drama than a llama.Okay, that was more pun than metaphor.I'll try another one.This couple has been kicked around so much they are like a hacky sack at a Phish conce...

    Wherein Ms. Roberts delves a bit deeper into mystery/suspense and casts diabolical characters with few redeeming qualities. Balanced by the easy-to-see, beautifully landscaped backdrop and admirable characters that the reader wants to be friends with, Under Currents is the quintessential drop-everything-and-bury-your-head-in-a-book read.

    1.5 stars.I don’t really have much positive to say about this. It started strong but as we left part one it soon became a snoozefest and to be blunt, if I wanted to read a book on landscape design and gardening, I’d go help myself to my Dad’s copies of Grow Your Own.Predictable and with dialogue which was at times clunky, the characters were actually likeable enough and clearly something kept me reading although I think it was more wishful ...

    This author really knows how to tell a story and never fails to grab at the readers emotions. Keep a box of tissues handy if you read this.Reading about domestic abuse is always uncomfortable but Nora Roberts tells the tales of three abusive marriages really effectively. One of them involves children too so be warned if this is a trigger for you. The pain of these issues is counteracted though by including other successful and happy marriages and...

    From the outside view, the Bigelows of Lakeview, North Carolina look like the ideal family. Graham Bigelow is the chief of surgery at the local hospital; wife Eliza is the perfect stay at home, affluent mother involved in many charities; son Zane is a baseball phenom, destined for a sports scholarship and possibly the big leagues; and young Britt couldn’t be a more obedient daughter. But, behind the proverbial closed doors is a somewhat differe...

    Nora Roberts has a gift for writing stories that portray all the intricate dynamics of family - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Her stories often demonstrate the power of family to either destroy or save lives and frequently deliver a theme of nature vs. nurture that I find fascinating. I love knowing when I open one of Roberts books that the human spirit of a character may be sorely tested, but the will to survive and persevere over evil will t...

    Nora Roberts is a word magician. I love the way she can make the reader step out of reality and into her stories, embark in the suspense and tension and love of her imagined characters.That said, I enjoyed this story very much, but I can't say it was amazing – save for part 1, that one was a real jaw dropper. I could have read that part as a stand alone and I'd have rated it a five star.But the rest, I don't know. I think there were many parts ...

    This was my first book from Nora Roberts and unfortunately it just wasn’t for me. This isn’t a bad book by any means, I just really lost interest in this story and these characters. Part 1 of this book was super engaging, it was incredibly hard to read and there are some real trigger warnings for abuse, some of the worst abuse I have ever read, but the story was captivating. Part 2 was good but forgettable and I started to lose interest, and ...
