It has a really nasty villain, the Hot Asian Girl HAG Jai, and another character who is supposed to be even worse but I found myself feeling a bit sorry for him. I could never find any consistency in Lila’s character. She is a house sitter and does really well living in other peoples homes and caring for their pets. I have known a few house sitters and they never had a website, traveled to Rome or lived in penthouses, but maybe New York is different from other places. Lila also writes YA novels with werewolves a bow to Kelley Armstrong?
All this should make her fun and fascinating but I found her whiny and unformed. A childhood as an army brat seems to have scarred her or something. The hero, Ash Archer, is great. He is a highly acclaimed artist who is also rich, comes from a background that should be dysfunctional but isn’t, and is definitely an interesting and fun person to have around.
One of Ms Roberts’ best male heroes. My only quibble is this macho dude paints exclusively fairies, witches, mermaids, gypsy girls dancing by firelight, haunted castles, etc.
There was no mention of unicorns but I suspect they are in there somewhere. I really cannot see the New York galleries eating up this kind of art, no matter how well he does it, and yet he is supposed to sell in the high six figures and regularly have his paintings hanging in the finest homes all over the world. From his subject matter I would suspect he is more likely to be the kind of male friend who races into my house to borrow my mascara than someone who burns up the sheets and is a dominant son, brother and lover.
My guess is this is the kind of art Nora Roberts thinks her readers would love, but I wish she would check out what is actually selling in the galleries these days. Still I liked Ash a lot and could overlook his Aubrey Beardsley inclination but I could not see why he was so smitten with Lila. She spends a lot of time peering through binoculars into other peoples’ windows which seems invasive and creepy but she is compassionate and carries around WD and duct tape.
The book does have a couple of appealing animals, a tea cup poodle and a cat, which made me start thinking about getting another dog. Oh well, on to the next Nora Roberts. I know a great many readers will love this book. I liked it but have liked others more. As at least one other person here has mentioned, I was sorely disappointed in this book.
Instead, the plot was mediocre, the action plodded along and the dialogue – and the characters – were boring. Talented, but boring. I literally could not put this book down.
I only got 1 hour and 40 minutes of sleep because I wanted to know what happens. There needs to be a sequel and keep this storyline going. This is a great mystery that brought several strangers together by chance as a murder is witnessed from a balcony across the way by Lila, who chose to make a career out of house sitting and writing young adult novels.
Lila was by far my favorite character of this book, she is a firecracker! She is funny, outspoken, says what she thinks, very inquisitive, strong willed, smart and thoughtful! Traits that I would love to to have for myself or in a best friend. The story was well written by Nora Roberts. I am not sure if I have ever read any of her books, but will read many more by this author! I love to read the kindle book while listening and following along with the audiobook, the narrators were awesome and really brought the book to life.
I would highly recommend this book! To me this book felt like Nora Roberts « phoned it in ». There was very little character development.
The story was slow and took a great deal of effort to get through. There were so many opportunities for her to broaden the story a bit, but let those opportunities slip through. There was never a time that my heart beat faster. There was no suspense. No thrill. Never felt the need to « put it in the freezer ».
I was very disappointed in the book. Nora Roberts has always been one of my favorites for years, but this book could have been a novella for all the « fluff » she had to put it to reach pages.
