Remember When By Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb
What a fascinating premise! Remember When is the first join venture between best-selling romance novelist Nora Roberts and her alter-ego best-selling futurist novelist, J.D. Robb. The book is written in two sections - the first by Roberts and the second by Robb, and son of a gun if there isn't a distinct difference in writing styles between the two!
Remember When begins in the quaint Maryland town of Angel's Gap where an antiques dealer, Laine Tavish, has set up a small shop to try to overcome the hardship of her heritage as the daughter of a notoriuos thief. When her father pulls off the heist of his life, stealing millions in diamonds, he brings a murderer and an insurance investigator to her door. Part One ends with Laine falling for the sexy investigator, recovering most of the diamonds, and putting the murderer in jail.
Fast-forward fifty years in the future to New York City when the granddaughter of Laine Tavish writes her family story of the stolen diamonds. When her book becomes a best-seller and people around her start dying, Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets the case. What a story Roberts and Robb create in Remember When - such intrigue, such romance, and such incredible characters all in one meaty 450-page book. (If you're going to pay twenth plus bucks for a new bestseller - don't you want 450 pages?)
