    25 starsThis is Diana Palmer's best book I have read so far Which doesn't mean it's a good book It is just that all the others were so badI wonder what's different about this book Maybe it's because it was written in 2005 and the other books by this author that I read were published in the 90s This could be it Because this book doesn't feel so terribly out of date and is definitely less annoyingThis mainly applies to characters I remember the main characters from other Palmer books and they were not only extremely clichéd but also very irritating But fortunately Phoebe is not as naive and incapable as the other heroines of these novels You can even say that she is doing well on her own and at times even shows a little self confidence Jeremiah is also not that much of a macho and alpha man as in other novels They are almost likeable At least they don't irritateAnother thing that I definitely like about this book is that a lot of space is devoted to the suspense thread And that's not the worst suspense thread I really like when my books are not only about romance but also about crime And shifting the focus from a not so great romance to something interesting for this book did goodEspecially since the romance is already very much in the style of typical Palmer books and is pretty dated The approach to a relationship is very old fashioned But it's most visible in sex scenes I guess the virginity fetish bothers me and And then there's the fetishization of fertility and motherhood that made me feel uncomfortable Though great progress has been made since the characters at least considered using contraceptionBesides this book is full of clichés The other couple fall in love after one meeting in typical Palmer style I don't think Phoebe and Jeremiah know each other very well either The whole conflict in both couples is based on their guesswork and total lack of communication Interestingly it is solved not as a result of the characters' conversation but when they come to the conclusion that they probably were wrong Even the suspense thread is not free from truisms The main villain gives not even one speech in which they describe actions and motives but as many as two And finally they admit that they did wrong and apologizes for their faults It was hilariousAs is the language and style of this book I guess I haven't had contact with such a typical example of purple prose for a long time The sex scenes and the characters' romantic feelings are really amusing All the emotionality of all the characters is as if taken straight out of a gothic romance Phoebe and Jeremiah get depressed because they can't be together Everything is overly dramaticThere is one thing that really puzzles me And no these are not the amazing skills and knowledge of Phoebe who although an anthropologist and museum curator can easily act as a modern pathologist What really puzzles me is why she decides to prune roses in a blizzard The weather is so bad that the helicopter cannot take off and the construction site has stopped meanwhile Phoebe decides to prune the roses I'm not a gardener but even I know that if the snow has fallen it's too late to save the roses What’s roses are pruned in spring not at the end of NovemberAfter the failures that this author's subseuent books turned out to be I was wondering whether to remove all her books from my tbr pile But now maybe I will give some of her recent novels a chance This one wasn’t that bad

Will she be safe from the murderer?? view spoiler His brother died and he felt compelled to marry his girl because she was pregnant so the boy isn't his and they never had sex It was a little far fetched but hey these are basically harleuins He was looking for her for over a year hide spoiler

    I keep telling myself I'm not going to try any Diana Palmers but the local library is limited and I occassionally take them home This was better than the others I've tried At least he loved her the whole way through and knew it and wasn't an ass to her the entire time like is usual in Palmer's booksThe book was published in 2004 so I'm not sure why it was set in 1994 and 1997 I liked the thing that kept them apart for the first 3 years When they met again they got it out and explained pretty uickly but then kept regressing and having problems mistrusting each other's feelings which seemed odd since they seemed to be so open with each other about the said feelings The biggest weirdness was that this story took place over 1 to 2 weeks and the characters reacted and had conversations as if months were passingThe suspense part was not real strong If not for that driving the plot to happen so fast maybe the previous conversations would have made sense The bad guys were pretty bungling The best part was the strength of the hero's feeling for the heroine He really seemed to love her and regret having to hurt her 3 years earlier and want to really protect and care for her He really seemed to love her intenselyview spoiler Why would you take a 2 year old to a murder investigation? hide spoiler

    Another Diana Palmer book that is not set in Jacobsville This one is a murder mystery romance and pretty dang good too This story is set in North Carolina near the Cherokee reservation therePhoebe has been in love with Cortez since she met him in Charleston Cortez has the same feelings for her but he is afraid Needless to say circumstances happen that lead them to be apart from one another If I tell it gives away a major part of the story Phoebe now is the curator of a museum just outside the Indian reservation One day she gets a phone call from a mysterious man saying that he is an anthropologist and they have found remains at a construction site that maybe Neanderthal in origin The next day the man is found dead on the reservation Now it is a federal case and a new department will be coming in to investigate the murder Cortez is that investigator He is also 34 comanche IndianJust a really nice story If I tell to much I will give everything away But it was a good book to read

    25 starsStill enjoy Diana Palmer but she certainly has some stinkers This one wasn't that bad but it wasn't great or even really good Maybe ok Blonde chick and hot Native American with just a smidgen of Spanish in order to allow him to be called Cortez are madly in love after two kisses and a snuggle He off and dumps her for the most stupid reason Di should've thought that one out and heroine goes nuts whacking off her hair and moving to the boonies never to touch a man again Out of every investigator in the US our hero gets sent to her little ol' small town to investigate a murder on an Indian reservation totally plausible eh? And don't get me started on the H's shaman father and voila' they are all hot for each other again Our author definitely didn't invest much thought either into the whole murder mystery I guess she figured we'd be too enthralled with the hot romance to care feh If you have nothing else to read or listen to like me it'll fill the time well enough But it's otherwise nothing special

    Just wow I loved it Well written I loved the characters the storyline everything I was so impressed As expectedThree years ago Phoebe Keller fell deeply in love with Jeremiah Cortez And she thought the feeling was mutual But he broke her heart when she received a newspaper clipping about his wedding to another woman No words No explanation Then circumstances involving murders occurred a situation that forced them to work together closely sigh I loved Jeremiah He's my kind of hero He was one of the most unforgettable heroes I've ever read about He was willing to sacrifice his own happiness for the sake of the people he loves And when he got a second chance he was willing to do everything to be with her and never let go

  10. Andrea Andrea says:

    Overall this was a really good book The only thing that this author does that puts me off slightly is her multiorgasmic men Which in itself isn't a bad thing but if all her books contain multiorgasmic men it gets old Now the plot in this book was great There was dager secrects and romance It caught my interest and kept it I'd reconmend this book
