After reading a few too many lackluster, hard to get into and hard to stick with until the end novels this one reminded me of all the reasons I use to buy Nora Roberts books the minute they were released (can't do that anymore). Her characterization just grabs me from the first page and her books are difficult to break away from.The book starts out when Olivia, the heroine, is only four and her storybook life with her beautiful movie-star mom comes to a horrific end. Olivia is the only witness t [...]
Aproveitei uma promoção fabulosa da Feira do Livro do Continente e comprei «A pousada no fim do rio». Não tinha grandes espectativas. Gostei da sinopse, fiquei interessada em ler mas não criei muitas ilusões à volta da história. Ainda bem porque adorei completamente esta história de Nora Roberts.O livro está dividido em 3 partes, a primeira com o nome Olívia, segunda Noah e terceira O Monstro, em que cada uma destas personagens é o centro da narrativa.Julie McBride e Sam Tanner, viv [...]
Kitaplığımda senelerce bekledikten sonra nihayet okuyabildim. Seneler önce Ankara Kitap Fuarı'nda bir sahafta bulmuştum ama hiç elime alıp girişmedim. GR'de bile okuma listemde senelerce bekledi, yeter artık okumalıyım dedim ve elime aldım. Şimdi bu kitapta birkaç sorun var. Ben Nora'yı aşşşırı seven biriyim, o yüzden çoğu kitabını da özellikle de Ölüm serisini ayıla bayıla okumuşumdur. Öncelikle anlatılan çok uzun bir dönem, Olivia'nın 4 yaşındaki haliyle [...]
4,25 stars. It broke my heart When I read the first chapters of this book. Poor Olivia. Who can do this to a little girl? The policeman who had the chase I took to my heart because he is human. That is one of the great things about the writting of Nora Roberts. The characters are real characters. The story lines well written. One of the things I did not like this time is that there are 4 parts of the book who are not connected with one an other in my opinion. I loved the blooming love between No [...]
This book was 3.5 stars for me. In deciding whether to list it here as 3 or 4 stars, I decided to round down, since my standards for Nora Roberts are pretty high.I actually liked the first half quite a bit. The book took its time setting up the primary romance, starting when Olivia was only 4 years old, and revisiting her at her first meeting with Noah when she was 12 (no romance) yet. Their next meeting (when she was 19) was full of sparks, which lead to some burns, and a refusal of all contact [...]
And she floated, drifted, glided. She imagined herself a single white feather, weightless, spinning slowly, endlessly, through the soft green light of the forest. her heart swelled and its beat quieted to a thick, dull thud. The muscles in her stomach loosened and dipped. As she skimmed her fingers into his hair, tipped her head back in surrender, she could have wept from the discovery. This, she thought, is life. Is beginnings. Is everything.When Olivia was only four years old her movie star mo [...]
This novel broke a lot of patterns for a romance novel. Much of the book was about Noah's book plans and huge swaths of the book were about the central mystery with Olivia completely absent. This might have worked better if the times we get with Olivia had been more pleasant. Which is my main problem with the book, I suppose. I really didn't care about Olivia. She was an emotional wreck, way beyond what is justified by her background (at least IMO). Or, to put it another way, someone who continu [...]
I was sucked into this one right away. There was something about the little girl Liv that made you want to protect her, to make sure that the monster never got her, that her mama would come back. That Liv had to see what she did was horrible, but even more chilling was the questioning in the aftermath by Detective Brady. Frank was so good with Liv and treated her gently that I found myself agreeing with adult Liv, that Frank is a great man.Even when we met Noah as a child I wasn't sure about him [...]
A good thriller, with an ending I never would have expected.
This book was amazing. Nora Roberts has written wonderfully the voice of a little child, who lost her mother. This is not just a regular romance book. The mystery part of the book was deeper and more interesting than the romance. All the characters will stay with me for a long time. Just a fantastic read.
2,5 estrelasEste livro foi-me emprestado pela minha prima Adriana (obrigada!) e sei que, mais cedo ou mais tarde, ela acabará por ler isto (provavelmente) e não sei se o que tenho a dizer a afectará ou não. Não gosto de escrever o tipo de opinião que estou prestes a escrever quando alguém me empresta ou dá livros, porque às tantas a pessoa até pode ficar triste, o que é perfeitamente natural.Por isso, antes de mais gostaria simplesmente de dizer que já li livros suficientes da Nora p [...]
This book had a lot in common with Nora Roberts' book Black Hills, which I really enjoyed. Both centered around a romantic couple that met in childhood and fell in love as adults; both featured a female protagonist who threw herself into a career with the natural world to avoid emotional entanglements; both included long-distance relationships [in which the man moved for the woman]; and both had a psycho-killer who endangered the female lead as a main antagonist.All felt handled with more dexter [...]
Opinião no blog howtoliveathousandlivesspNeste livro estamos perante a fórmula do sucesso de Nora Roberts: drama, amor, ação, mistério, redenção… Talvez por isso esta estória peque pela pouca originalidade, pois, para quem já leu muitas obras desta autora, acaba por não trazer muito de novo. O casal principal é minimamente cativante, o que permitiu que me dedicasse a esta leitura, apesar da previsibilidade. A protagonista, Olivia, possui uma personalidade complexa, misturando inocê [...]
Olivia MacBride and her parents, a fairy-tale Hollywood family, had everything--fame, fortune, and love. But when 4-year-old Olivia awakens one night to find her mother brutally murdered and her father, Sam, standing over her corpse, the little girl's dreamland dissolves before her very eyes.Whisked away to the sanctuary of the Olympic Peninsula by her grandparents, Olivia learns to bury the past deep within her. Determined to protect herself from painful memories, Olivia limits her life to the [...]
A friend from church recommended this book to me. As soon as I started listening to it, I realized I had read it before some years ago. It was still gripping and entertaining, all these years later. And when I came to the end, I was surprised again!Olivia was only four years old when her mother died. The monster came, and the frightened child hid in the closet. The policeman found her there. She remembers only a few details of that night. Years later she meets the policeman again with his family [...]
This is not your typical mystery or suspense but it has all of the elements to make it a really good story. Olivia is as complex as they come but Noah was the perfect man to help her tear down the walls she built to cope with the tragic circumstances of her childhood. While a suspect was imprisoned for the murder of Olivia's mother, you're never quite certain if the right person was brought to justice and this book takes you the distance.To say anything more would ruin the experience for other r [...]
Que libro tan horrible!! Si pudiera darle 0 estrellas se lo daria, no se que le paso a la autora, cientos de paginas en las que no pasaba nada en lugar de invertir en escribir una historia coherente y al final nos tira la gran revelacion y ya esta WTF el libro no tiene final solo se detiene es inconcluso no puedo creer que no le haya dedicado mas paginas a esta etapa del libro.Los peores protagonistas del mundo , mal perfilado, si ningun desarrollo de la historia aaaahahhh destesto a este libro [...]
Isn't it every woman's fantasy to make love to a hot guy on a river bank in the mountains?The "villian" is someone you end up feeling sorry for. And at the end you love him and cry for him.Unexpected twist at the end.For a brief moment, I wanted to become a hiking guide. But then I came to my senses.
It is almost confusing in certain sections, I have to figure out which character is thinking what (Which is why head hopping is a big no-no). I did like the characters. The mystery is good. Full Review: thetbrpile.weebly/reviews/
I've read a couple of her books before, and a couple of her as JD Robb, which on the whole I've preferred because I like the slightly sci-fi combination with the detective stories. I picked this up because I'm on a mission to get through my book club pile and the blurb sounded good. On the positive side, she is a good storyteller and the plot certainly kept me going right through a lazy Labour Day. I liked the descriptions of the Washington forest and felt like booking a holiday to go see giant [...]
Setting:Beverly Hills mansions; River’s End camp and forests of Olympic Peninsula, WashingtonTheme:Love; violence; drugs; justice vs miscarriage of justiceCharacters:Olivia MacBride: age 4, has been loved by her mother and father – they read her stories and play with her, they dress up and go to parties, but daddy becomes sick (using drugs) and doesn’t live at home, she visits dad with aunt & uncle as chaperones… and then she hears fighting, goes to find mom, plays with mom’s jars [...]
This is the story of the rippling effect of murder. The psychological and emotional impact a heinous crime can have on the family and also, on the law & enforcement personnel. In this story a starlet is murdered by her celebrity husband. Leaving behind the main character of this story, a 4 year old child, to deal with the repercussions. The writing makes it an easy read. And the author excels in giving vivid descriptions. But multiple scenes are repetitive to the point of predictability betw [...]
I Love Nora Roberts Books. They Not Only Have A Very Good Ending But The Story Is Great. This Story Keeps You Interest. Loved The Drama And How The Characters Related To Each Other. Loved The Ending. Another Great Book By Nora Roberts. 😍
Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsFirst of all, I'm going to have to admit that the first chapter of the book bowled me over and I nearly cried with grief for Olivia as a child--finding her mother dead, seeing her father standing over the body with a bloody pair of scissors in his hands, running scared and hiding, and then being told that her mother was never coming home again I'm usually not one to make much of these scenes, having read a lot of crime thrillers with all of their bloody violence and tra [...]
Een oudere titel die me nog ontgaan was. Weer betrouwbaar smulboekamusement met spannende ontknoping. Wel grappig om te zien hoe gedateerd sommige dingen raken, zoals een modem meenemen voor je laptop.
Eu gosto muito de ler Nora Roberts. Ela consegue entrelaçar um conjunto de ingredientes que têm a capacidade de me fazer apaixonar pelos seus livros. Romance, mistério, suspence Pequenos apontamentos de humor e boa disposição nas personagens. Apesar deste livro reunir todos estes ingredientes, a forma como a história foi conduzida não me convenceu. Não me senti muito conectada à história, ao local onde tudo se passou, nem sequer às personagens.Olivia e Noah são o casal protagonista d [...]
River's End spans just over 30 years in the life of Olivia McBride from her mother's murder when she was 4 to her father's release from prison when she's 26. When 4-year-old Olivia woke up to the sound of her mother's scream and found her father standing over her mother with a pair of bloody scissors in his hand she ran and hid. Her testimony helped put him in jail even though he claimed he was innocent. Now 30 years later, true crime writer Noah Brady, son of the cop who helped jail Olivia's fa [...]
A life altering story of murder, betrayal and a dark secret kept for almost 20 years by a person closest to Olivia McBride.Livvy was four years old when her father was incarserated for the gruesome, drug induced murder of her mother. The tearful testimony of a four year old made sure that he was convisted of the murder. The sentence, twenty years, the first fifteen without the option of parole. Twenty years later she still only knows the bits and piecies she's been able to learn from her aunt. S [...]
Most part of the book was amazing, it was the type of plot that got me hooked with NR's books in the first place and then came the ending and it fell flat for me. I'm really sorry to say this but Livvy was stubborn as hell. And then when Noah starting pushing away she just jumps straight back begging him to not walk away. I mean I get it, that Noah's getting a little bit annoyed and pissed at her stubbornness when she tried pushing him away again but the way it was handled, it felt really rushed [...]
