The Witness - A Review

I Don't know if the any of you are Nora Roberts fans, but I have liked a lot of the books she's written, at least the one's I have read. Yes, she has been around for a while, but I think her writing has gotten better and better through the years. When I first read her books I was drawn to her trilogies...imagine that, me liking trilogies, but anyway, I did enjoy the 4 different trilogies of hers, and after that, I read a lot of her other books.

She is a good story teller, and her books always had me wanting to turn the page and staying up later than I wanted to so I could finish just one more chapter. I think most people associate her with strictly romance, but that is not true. She tells stories of folklore, witches, ghosts, just to name a few, and of course, there is usually a couple that ends up together.

Even though my books are a fantasy story, there too is a love relationship. If you have never read her, you should give her a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The book I recently read of her's is the new one she just released, The Witness. 
Great story, I really enjoyed it! Her main character witnesses a murder and ends up on the run for years. It kept me turning the page and I give it a 4 and a half out of 5 stars. I don't want to give away to much of the book, but I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. It didn't move to fast, and gave the right amount of detail, not over the top. 

I would recommend this book to my family and friends and I think that most of them would like it as much as I did. I know most of you men are saying, "I'm not reading a Nora Roberts book", but if you don't want to give it a chance, then try her JD Robb series. They are about murder, which I like a good mystery also.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you like Nora, and have read any of her novels. I would like to hear your thoughts. And, if you get a chance, download one of her books and try it, I think you will like it!

Until next time, Lisa


  1. I haven't ventured to Nora Roberts before. I've gone the Danielle Steele path but never her. The one you're talking about actually sounds good! On your nook?? Share? Lol

  2. This sounds like a good read. I will have to do the virtual thing and download it. My virtual library is stacking up with books to read, I better get to it!

    Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Sure I would be glad to share Brandie and you should give her a chance. Someday try her old trilogies, love them! Robin, I have a few books of hers if you ever want to read one, let me know! Thanks for the comments!
