19chris51 says: Yes, I read Nora Roberts writing as J.D.Robb, I must say I`m not to fussed on her romance novels,but the J.D.Robb series, blows me away, I cannot get enough of them, I like patricia Cornwell, but the "in death" series is great reading (J.D.Robb) its set in the future, in New York, a police series fasinating,a must read, I would give Nora Roberts 5 star rating Reply

cas says: I have read almost all of the Patricia Cornwell books. The last few have left me a little cold as I feel her earlier novels were a little more "less obvious". I agree with you - 5 out of 5 for Nora Roberts - no matter what name she chooses to write under. Reply

pommy says: I went off Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson at much the same time, but I must say the last two Scarpetta yarns have shown some improvemet. With James Patterson , his chapters are too short and there is not much reading volume in the whole book lately,
I enjoy Jilly Cooper and have read and collected the series until there was no more room in the bookcase. Reply

natters says: I have read a lot of Nora Roberts and JD Robbs books, have seen a few of the books made into movies, my daughter and I read JD Robb books together from the beginning from the library and if we missed one, we'd look for it and buy it, and I'd donate them to my local library. Yeah, I like her books. Reply

cas says: The "in death" series are great - and really move along. I have seen some of the movies, they're okay, but seem to lack the depth of the books. Libraries are great for getting her books - and good for you for donating them. I'm sure it is much appreciated. Reply

natters says: Yeah, my daughter said I must really like NRs books to watch them, that was the thing so I just keep reading - and there's a cheap book shop near Central where I look sometimes but they don't do NR/JDR too often. Reply

Aura says: Hey,
I LOVE Nora Roberts who also writes as J D Robb. I really love her detective Eve series 'In death'. The books are a fab thriller series that is a real page turner and an edge of the seat author. Now that I have an iPad it is so much easier to get her book and read them anywhere I go!!! Reply

juneebabe says: I luv her books - the trilogys specially - as one book is never enough. I got hooked on her books thanks to my daughter & she also reads JD Robb - Noras' other name she writes under. I can only afford 2nd hand books since i'm a disabled pensioner or i go to the library - they don't have a good selection though. Enjoy everyone. Reply

Not sure if it's a generational thing, or just a literary taste thing, but I'm not drawn to romance novels. Reply

juneebabe says: I've been reading Noras' books for years now since my daughter put me on to her - my daughter has quite a Nora Roberts collection & even her writings under JD Robb. She certainly knows how to set a plot be it mystery or romance. I personally luv her trilogies - could keep reading her books forever. Well done Nora Roberts. Reply
