I used to love Nora Roberts books. I would read about one a week, with my favorites being those she wrote as J.D. Robb about tough female detective, Eve Dallas. Then, at some point, I sorta left Roberts behind. I moved into reading true crime and more serious novels. But my love for Roberts returned when I read The Collector.
The book is about Lila Emerson, a novelist and professional house sitter who witnesses a murder/suicide while looking out the window of an apartment she’s staying in.
While cooperating with the murder investigation, Lila meets Ashton Archer, a wealthy artist whose brother was thought to be responsible for the murder/suicide. In grand Roberts style, the two team up to find out what really happened to the brother and his girlfriend, and, of course, fall into a dangerous romance in the process.
The book is not at all realistic, but that’s what makes it fun. It’s an easy read and pulls you in almost like a soap opera. It’s a good summer read for those of us who like a little murder mystery in our romance novels.
