High Noon – Nora Roberts

25 Feb

This is my first Nora Roberts novel. It makes me feel a tiny bit guilty. I have heard so many good reviews, and her sales are a testament to this, but I just never ‘fancied’ it.

Oh how I chuckle now. Well actually i don’t, I just want to throw my coat on and run to the nearest bookstore.

I have said before that I am a sucker for chick lit, but my passion is detective crime.  Now I have the best of both worlds.

A mixture of drama and family life, seedy stalkers and romance. What more could you want?

It is very cleverly written. It is so simple, it could be mistaken for amateur, but  I would never place that tag on this novel.

Just a quick summary; Pheobe MacNamara is a chief hostage negotiator. Excellent at her job, she has managed to upset a male colleague who then assaults her. When little clues that she could be in danger start being left at her property, along with an unknown identity following her, Pheobe has to work out who has the grudge against her and why. Meanwhile she has met Duncan (perfect – true chick lit romantic) who is by her side throughout the investigation.

I probably could try to find fault, but  honestly, I don’t want to. It was, by far, the best bedtime read I have had in a long time.
