Come Sundown by Nora Roberts
I generally really enjoy Nora's stand-alone big suspensy type novels, but this one just took SO long to get going I was afraid it might even become a DNF!
First off, maybe it's just me, but has Nora become rather enamoured of the woman kept prisoner by the loony-tune guy over the past few books? That's the basis for the suspense here.
The first... oh, almost 55% of the book is spent getting to know the characters, and getting to know how the resort works. We see Nora building her trio of couples - another of her tropes that seems to now have made it's way into the one-of books. And there wasn't even any friction or anything between the heroine and the hero. Just alot of dancing around each other in a very pleasant bantery sort of way. It was at this point that I was about ready to throw in the towel and that's rare for me, especially with a Nora book. But all of a sudden, things actually began to happen!
I devoured the last 40% of the book today. Couldn't put it down. Even enjoyed the twist at the end which really shouldn't have been a twist but she got me anyway. *LOL*
So in the end, it was far from the best Nora I've read, but still worth a 3.5 star rating.
