Book Tuesday: Vision in White

In honor of my visit with my mom, I let her pick this week's book to recommend and she chose Nora Roberts's Vision in White( my mom's the one who hooked me to romances when I was in fifth grade, btw). She really liked this book, and so do I. I also liked her newest addition to the Quartet, Bed of Roses.

This quartet marks a deviation from Nora's normal trilogies-- and not just by number. It's a reach back into her pure, contemporary romance roots and I think she's done a phenomenal job with it. Though I snap her novels up as soon as they come out (and I mean on the day they come out-- including the hardcover ones) and truly love both her In Death series and her romantic suspense novels, I do miss her romances. No one does character like Nora Roberts and I think this book, and this Quartet, is a perfect example of how she really does do relationships and characterization just beautifully.

So, what do you think? If you read Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, which are your favorite books/types of books by her?


  1. What I think is that I've been missing out on something: I've never read a Nora Roberts book. So sorry! I've read thousands of romances, but most are easy-to-hold paperbacks. The only hardcovers/bigger books I've read were written by LaVyrle Spencer (and I absolutely loved those).
    I know I wouldn't be into the "Death series", but when you say this is a romantic suspense one ... well ... please count me in!
    You've piqued my curiosity now, as I had no idea she wrote the others too. Guess I'd better add Nora to my list of books to check out, eh?
    Many thanks for offering yet another great contest. I hope you and your mom, as well as the rest of your family, enjoy the best the season has to offer!

  2. Oops. Sorry about that. I got this site mixed up with a contest I entered. There's obviously no contest here, but I still wanted to comment.
    Thanks again for letting me/us know about Nora Roberts. I had no idea what all she wrote.
    I hope you're having a lovely Christmas holiday and enjoying all the season has to offer (less the anxiety).
