    One thought on “Homeport”

    1. This book takes forever to get to the good stuff and once it gets there, the stuff is only so-so. It doesn't help that Ryan, the main guy, is a jerk nor that I figured out the main villain from the first time we meet him/her.So a thin plot and a main guy I didn't like coupled with a heroine who was more than a little bland but with moments of truly stupid naiveté. So yeah, not my favorite.That said, I stayed up late to finish the book even if I can't really tell you why (view spoiler)[Particula [...]

    2. Çok beğendim, bu ara aradığım her şey vardı bu kitapta. Nora nın daha eski kitapları bana her zaman ayrı bir tat veriyor. Gözümden kaçmasına inanamıyorum ama şimdi okumak baya iyi geldi.

    3. I haven't read a Nora Roberts book that I’ve disliked as much as Homeport. Okay, that’s not true. Daring to Dream was awful too. Well, as awful as a book by Nora Roberts can be. Readers with better taste than me love it but I thought Josh was spoiled and Margo was whiny and spoiled. Together they were insufferable. But this sort of thing is atypical of a Nora Roberts book. She almost always excels at creating likable characters and I usually love them but not-so-much this time around. Actual [...]

    4. Style and LanguageNora Roberts wrote with Homeport an enthralling and very absorbing novel, that I count to one of her best works ever. Miranda is an expert of art and has the once in a lifetime opportunity to examine a bronze nobody thought would really exist. The family´s institute is famous and her mother very demanding when it comes to the institutes reputation. Mother feelings aren´t on her list and so Miranda has to do her job with a more than 1000% profession and leaving her feelings as [...]

    5. A suspense by Nora. Gotta tell ya, not among my favs. Although, it's Nora so it's still great, I stumbled a few times over the characters. Miranda is a very complicated woman. To the world she is a brilliant ice queen. But, Ryan sees through her icy exterior to the troubled warm soulwhen he robs her.Yep, he's an art thief and a con man. His is the character I had problems with. He lies to her continuously. I hate that!! His inner dialogue shows he's playing her, so when their romance heats up I [...]

    6. I am not a romance fan but loved my first Nora Roberts novel that delved into the mystical. Although “Homeport” turned out to be a crime mystery, it kept planted in romance and, like “The Reef”; demonstrates why I would rather stick to her ethereal fare. You would also think a romance-authoress would weave inspiring liaisons. I was disgusted in both these 1998 novels, that anyone would depict a woman accepting physical or verbal aggression. Both of the male characters for whom she hoped [...]

    7. De um início pouco auspicioso passei a estar francamente entusiasmada. O que era expectável redundou em algo diferente e a surpresa acutilou a minha curiosidade. Quando me deparo com escritores que escrevem dúzias e dúzias de livros sinto-me como um cliente nas grandes superfícies, ou seja, com expectativas medianas. Considero difícil não caírem no erro, de a dada altura, banalizarem a escrita. Quase sem tempo para qualquer aprofundamento, receio que instigados a produzirem mais e mais, [...]

    8. Klasik Nora kitabı,gene polisiyeyle aşkı çok güzel harmanlamış.Ama bu seferkinde polisiye cidden yoğun,özellikle kitabın başı Ryan gelene kadar sıkıcıydı. Miranda annesi tarafından bronz bir heykelin dönemini,özelliklerini öğrenmesi için İtalyaya çağrılıyor,alanında en iyilerden biri kızımız ve heykeli inceleyip bir rapor halinde sunuyor,ancak çok geçmeden heykelin sahte olduğu ortaya çıkınca kızımızın kariyeri tehlikeye giriyor.Bu arada kendisine ortakl [...]

    9. I feel like I need to keep checking the book and the book page to make absolutely sure this was Nora Roberts. I've never disliked one of her books as much as I disliked this one. The plot itself was intriguing and for the most part done well (outside of my major issue with the book). I liked the unusual view into the art world, and the build up of the central mystery. I mostly liked the reveal of who was behind everything. I thought I had the situation pegged after a somewhat out-of-left-field r [...]

    10. Miranda Jones se me hacía caladita a esta mujer de White CollarBien, ¿qué tenemos aquí? No tiene sentido contar el argumento con o sin spoilers, porque la contratapa de este libro se encarga perfectamente de contar toda la historia. Así que ¿qué pienso de ello? Entretiene pero me deja fría. Miranda es linda y todo, vemos que en realidad es más compleja de lo que aparenta ya que la indiferencia de sus padres y la relación con su hermano la tienen marcada. Se complica al querer relaciona [...]

    11. Não sou muito fã de Nora Roberts mas este é sem dúvida um dos melhores romances dela, tem tudo o que um bom leitor aprecia, romance, acção, mistério, crime, traição É só escolher!

    12. This was one of my first Nora Roberts and I loved it the first time I read it and I still love it now, perhaps even more now that I've read it in English LOL :) I have to admit that I have a fondness for cat burgler/art thief plot :)So what do I love about this book? Basically everything :) I love Miranda and Ryan's chemistry and relationship :) They are so different and Ryan definitively makes Miranda happier. Miranda is a great heroine strong, but at the same time, vulnerable. Ms Roberts did a [...]

    13. Me encanto!!! *-* Al inicio pense en que seria aburrido y no me gustaría pero me gusto muchisimo. Es una novela con un trama llena de intriga, suspenso y romance. Además te mantiene interesado con situaciones que no esperabas como los asesinatos y los robos. También esta muy documentada y los protagonistas son increibles. Ryan y Miranda han sido perfectos. La forma en que se conocieron, el desenvolvimiento de su relación es adecuado. Son tan diferentes pero aun asi se aman tanto. Los he enco [...]

    14. Opinião no blog howtoliveathousandlivesspEste é um romance misterioso e arrebatador, com uma abordagem ao mundo da arte fascinante, em que acompanhamos a vida dos artistas, agentes e galeristas, uma ode brilhante às obras de arte. A ação alterna entre o Maine e Florença, com descrições vívidas de ambos os locais. A personagem principal, Miranda, é uma mulher de carácter forte e independente, fruto da negligência familiar e sentimental que sofreu. Quando se apaixona por Ryan, um ladr [...]

    15. Particularly enjoyed this because I haven't read a ton of Nora Roberts books, but this had an element of intrigue not found in others I have digested. Enjoyed the Italian scenery and spotted use of Italian phrasing. Roberts also brought the Maine coast to life as a setting here.That the hero of the book was a thief came across as different, and that I honestly could not predict how it ended was fairly amazing. Miranda Jones and Ryan Boldari made quite the couple. I thought the difficult mother/d [...]

    16. A cada página fiquei mais e mais embrenhada na história.Apesar da sua "profissão não oficial", Ryan apresenta-se como uma pessoa honesta (dentro dos possíveis) e com bom coração. Tem a família mais maravilhosa e com os episódios mais cómicos e calorosos do livro. Miranda, por seu lado, contrasta com esta família, sendo muito cientifica e exata.Deste modo a história tem o seu equilíbrio, o seu crime (típico dos livros da Nora) e a história de amor com as personagens a equilibrarem- [...]

    17. Adorei! Não há muito que possa dizer sobre NR, adoro tudo o que ela escreve eheh A Dama Negra é um livro super interessante e misterioso, que nos faz ficar apaixonados pela protagonista desde as primeiras páginas e por um certo ladrão responsável por muitas gargalhadas! É ótimo para quem gosta de mistério, romance e quer rir durante 409 páginas :)

    18. At this point, I was figuring I'd just finish off what strip-covers I had left on the shelf. Lo and behold! The last one on the shelf is by Nora Roberts! Yummo! And, as usual, I was not let down. Fast-paced, fun, smart characters, interesting backdrop (the worlds of art authentication and theivery), steamy sex, some murder for good measure. Nothing amazing—but definitely good, solid Roberts.

    19. 4 but it's a bit of stretch, I actually really liked the book. But I have a HUGE problem with "okay" finish and I feel like I lost the tip of my nose. This one was better, but still a little more. But I think the beginning was a little slow to grab me so I couldn't rate it any higher because of it similar to Hot Ice with regards to thieves and art.

    20. Estuvo entretenido pero no más. No me pareció inolvidable ni mucho menos, para pasar el rato nada más. Prefiero otros de Nora.

    22. An ok Nora book. When I first read this book, Borders bookstore was doing quite well in 1999. I didn't buy this book, instead I went to this store and read it. I believe it took me two visits to Borders to finish it. I liked the story plot and the hero/ heroine. I just forgot the title and the author. Been searching for more than a decade and presto - it's an ebook now.Now granted I read this book when I was 19 yo (currently 36) so a lot of it is still foggy. Heck I couldn't even remember the au [...]

    23. I recently re-listened to this book by Nora Roberts. It was a good stand alone story about the Jones of Jones Point, Maine. The story opens with Miranda being mugged and then traveled to Florence to authenticate a statue. From the very beginning it was easy to see that there was tension in her family. With a debacle over the notes and sent back home in disgrace, she went to work at the Art Museum with her brother. Ryan Boldari wooed her as no one had ever done. With burglary and more disgrace co [...]

    24. A good read, as usual from Roberts. I was a bit disappointed with the "who" in "who done it"--just another nutter, in my humble opinion. Then again, sane people with sound minds probably aren't the ones doing the kinds of things you write a book like this about. I doubt I'd read this one again, but it was good. Definitely worth a read. I enjoyed how deep Roberts delved into the psyche of the main character, and how deeply she takes the reader into the protagonist's family situation. It did take [...]

    25. Emprestaram-me este calhamaço. Como tenho ideia de que os livros não vêm ter comigo por acaso, fiz-me à empreitada, avisando logo que se não me interessasse minimamente, o largaria. Mas acabei por lê-lo até ao fim, mais que não fosse, queria saber quem era afinal o assassino. Bastante previsível, devo dizer, mas também fala sobre história da arte e da cultura italiana que eu admiro bastante, algumas paisagens rurais e marítimas dos EUA que gostei de conhecer e algum sexo pelo meio (b [...]

    26. The first book I've ever read of Nora Roberts and I must say, also my ultimate favourite! I love the sexy male lead character, he may be a bad boy but he has a good heart. Not to mention oh so sexy ;)

    27. A bit of a disappointment. I like Nora Roberts but this one the plot was rushed. Normally when the conclusion comes you see look back and have an oh duh moment. this time it was out of left field, and I can't be bothered to care about the characters for longer then the length of the page.
