This is the first book Nora Roberts published as J.D. Robb. I've followed the series from the beginning and wouldn't consider missing even one. If you enjoy romance, you'll love these books. If you like a good crime novel, you'll love these books. If you like light weight science fiction (near future, no aliens), you'll love these books. I want to be Eve when I grow up.
Katie MacAlister is seriously one if the funniest authors I have ever read. She has a gift for the written word like no other. If you enjoy reading, and have never picked up one of her books, do yourself a favor and make one of her novels your next Barnes and Noble purchase.
