Review: Hot Rocks by Nora Roberts

Publisher: Berkley

Antiques dealer Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. At least, that's what everyone in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, the daughter of a notorious con man...

Laine's past catches up with her when one of Big Jack's associates turns up in her shop with a cryptic warning and is then run down in the street. Now the next target of a ruthless killer, Laine teams up with sexy PI Max Gannon to find out who's chasing her, and why. The anwer lies in a hidden fortune that will change Laine's life forever...

My rating:

An old man comes into Laine Tavish's store out of the storm, acting like he knows her, begging her to call him. When he leaves, he's run down by a car and as he lies dying in Laine's arms, he sings a portion of a song...The song her father used to sing when they were forced to leave suddenly when she was a child...

A pretty disappointed addition to the NR opus. The story was all over the place with scenes following one another too quickly, everything felt hasty and rushed, alongside the romance whose only saving grace was the banter.

The story could've used a few more pages to flesh-out the necessary details while leaving the redundant ones out and the romance could've also used a lot more time, instead of going from "nice to meet you" to "let's get married and have three kids" in the span of two days.
