Couldn't finish this

I felt the narration of this was dreadfully dull. I tried to get on with it, because the story seemed promising, but could only make it through four chapters before shelving. I might pick this up again in paperback.

Not as good as I had hoped!

This book focuses mainly on the romance between the two main characters and how they feel about each other. They have an instant attraction to each other and it is obvious from the outset that they will overcome any obstacle to be together. This detracts from the romance which would have been far better with a slower build up.

The background story is much better. It involves the Nemesis character wanting vengeance on the criminal who killed his best friend, and the assistant DA, Deborah, wanting to track down a drug dealer who is causing devastation in the city. This is a good plot with some tension and action as Deborah makes progress with the investigation, and the drug dealers see her as a threat. The action scenes are quite good. There is also a good twist in the end which I didn't see coming.

If the book had spent more time focusing on the plot, and built up the romance at a reasonable rate instead of undying love at first sight, this could have been a much better book. This is the first Nora Roberts I have read. I didn't feel inclined to rush to get another, but you never know. The performance was better than the story. Kate Rudd handled the accents and different voices well, and put some feeling into the dialogue.
