i agree with the review below as it was my first nora roberts as well and i have been a nora robert fan ever since........
A GREAT disappointment!! I love Nora's works, but this one left me feeling absolutely flat. First off, the conversations were not as lively as her other works and then what I hated most about this book was the stereotypical image she'd offered of Muslims: petty, narrow-minded, stupid.
I'm not Arab, I don't know what goes on in their world. But I AM a Muslim, and I took it very personally when she talked so very lightly of Koran or Islamic traditions.
She should study more about our world before venturing inside it.
Yeah, this book left me feeling blah. All I can say is that it's a good thing I read her other books first.
