However, instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as a leading authority in her field, the bronze nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question and the bronze is declared a hoax. Desperate to restore her credibility and prove "The Dark Lady" is really a previously unknown work of Michelangelo, Miranda turns to Ryan Boldari, a seductive - and supposedly reformed - art thief. The Reef - read by Sandra Burr, directed by Bill Weideman The Reef is the story of Tate Beaumont, a beautiful young student of marine archeology - and of Matthew Lassiter, a sea-scarred young man who shares her dream of finding Anguelique's Curse, the jeweled amulet surrounded by legend and said to be long lost at the bottom of the sea. Forced into a reluctant partnership with Matthew and his uncle, Tate soon learns that her arrogant but attractive fellow diver holds as many secrets as the sea itself. River's End, read by Sandra Burr, directed by Laural Merlington Olivia's parents had been one of Hollywood's glittering golden couples . . . until the night the monster came. The monster who destroyed their beautiful home and took her mother away from her forever. The monster with the face of her father . . . Now a young woman, Olivia finds her memory of that night has faded. Her mother's grieving family spared no effort to keep Olivia safe from the publicity, taking her to grow up in the beautiful natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest. But, despite the terror and the years that have passed, a part of her still yearns to recall those horrifying events, to know the truth about her childhood. With the help of a young writer named Noah Brady, she could have the chance.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Homeport - 2/5 - Yikes. Bad story. To start with the characters. For having a doctorate, the heroine, Miranda really is TSTL. But I guess common sense is no indicator of academic intelligence. And to make matters worse, she's a doormat, constantly trying to please people, forgiving people when she shouldn't (Ryan) and letting people tell her what to do. Ryan, our hero, the noble art thief (how does that figure?), is an ass. He has no ethical dilemma about being a thief - it's right because he's Homeport - 2/5 - Yikes. Bad story.

And to make matters worse, she's a doormat, constantly trying to please people, forgiving people when she shouldn't (Ryan) and letting people tell her what to do. Ryan, our hero, the noble art thief (how does that figure?), is an ass. He has no ethical dilemma about being a thief - it's right because he's good at it. Self-centered much? He's bossy, arrogant and (view spoiler)[ it ruins a book for me when the hero is willing to sleep with the heroine for the first time whens he's plastered and then not feel guilty for it in the morning. Even worse, the heroine doesn't even get upset about it (hide spoiler)] I'm not sure this guy is actually capable of romantic love. So the romance here was a bust. The suspense was a little more interesting, but I expect a decent romance out of the story so I can't rate it highly. The Reef - 3/5 - An average Nora Roberts suspense novel that is somewhat forgettable. What is most definitely not forgettable is the setting, because it is so unique to her novels. This takes place on the ocean - these guys are oceanic treasure hunters searching for an amulet. So the characters are on boats, they're diving - it's really quite refreshing how different it is. What is forgettable though is the plot and the romance. It's divided into 3 parts - the past, where we see Tate and Matthew meet and begin to fall in love (she's 19, he's in his 20's) but things don't end very well in the past, the present where they meet up again and rekindle their romance and the future... I don't typically like that sort of thing...she did it in Blue Smoke and I didn't like it their either. I want to focus on the present and if an author must give information about the past, I prefer a quick prologue or something. Just a preference. The suspense and other things are enjoyable but also really quite forgettable. So it's a solid 3. River's End - 3/5 - This just does not read like a typical Nora Roberts romance. It's set up so that it follows Olivia through her childhood and interactions with Noah and his family. So we see everything that happens to her (when she was 4, 12 and 18) and Noah's connection to her. This takes up 50% of the book. The "romance" such as it is follows afterwards. After 6 years of separation (during their last meeting, Noah broke Olivia's heart) they end up working together. For the 2nd half of the book, it feels like Noah is the main character and Olivia is less important. The primary focus of the entire story is less about the romance and more about character development and the mystery of who really killed Olivia's mother. Noah was great. Olivia...boy is she stubborn! She has a lot of emotional baggage from her childhood trauma and from when Noah broke her heart (view spoiler)[ even though I don't think he really did...he never really got the chance to explain and what he was able to explain she was too stubborn to believe (hide spoiler)] and he's really working hard to make the romance work. At one points he calls her a frickin' combat zone and then wonders aloud whether it's really worth it or not. At that point I was like, "Yeah! Go find someone worth your wonderful self Noah!" So it was okay, but this was not the kind of book I typically enjoy from Nora Roberts. On a side note - the mystery definitely remained a mystery for most of the book...
