I'm posting this here rather than Favorites because ..... it wasn't a favorite. It's good and kept my attention but there was something kind of weird about it. I'm not sure I bought the chemistry between the h/h. I rated it very good but possibly should have dropped it to good. It's well written but the plot seemed a bit pushed to me

Has anyone else read it and what did you think? It might be that I was rushed with Christmas stuff and didn't give it a fair shake.

I've been going back and forth on reading this book. She used to be a huge favorite of mine, but I haven't really enjoyed her last few books. They just feel....different, somehow.

Linda--I will wait to buy 'Shiver' in p/b form at the UBS. I thought the synopsis sounded very similar to Ms. Robards' earlier title, 'Walking After Midnight'. I did enjoy that book...

Walking After Midnight was better. IMHO of course.

I've noticed the same thing on her last few books. I have a hold on a copy of Shiver at the library.

Karen Robards is one of my favorite writers, but her last few books have not been as good as those written in the 90s. Ditto, Shivers.

Sometimes I wonder if romance writers get tired of writing in the same sub-genre and become stale. Linda Howard and Nora Roberts are two others whose newer RS books are not as good as the older ones. Then again, maybe it isn't with the authors, but the readers.

I read Shiver last month and I thought it was fairly good. I liked the craziness at the end (don't want to spoil it but the part with the plane). I liked Shiver better than the one before by her (although I can't remember the darn title). The one before was the one about the mob guy's daughter or daughter's friend who's a cop or something and she discovers the hero breaking into the house and then they're stranded in the forest around a lake. That was pretty good now that I think about it more, but I still liked Shiver better.
