A great story, good characters that reach out for you.
Bondi Boy
I enjoyed the book quite a bit and while by today's standards it may be considered boring or too tame, it was well written, very romantic with shades of humor.
Tammy Suto
I have read this book 3 or 4 times and it gets better with each reading.

PLAYING THE ODDS is another in the MacGregor family saga and yes, the famous matchmaking Scot, Daniel MacGregor, is involved once again.

Daniel's daughter, Serena, had decided to escape the responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with her family and became a blackjack dealer on a cruise ship named Celebration. She only wanted a couple of years to enjoy life and see the world. She figured this was an excellent way to do so. After letting his daughter enjoy her freedom for a bit, Daniel decided it was time for Serena to help continue the family bloodline and get on with her life. He arranged for her to meet the man of her dreams. The only problem was that Serena didn't know she had a man of her dreams.

As is Daniel MacGregor's style, he doesn't interfere per se, he just places two people he thinks are perfect for each other in close proximity and lets the magic of romance take over from there. He's batting 1000, so he must be doing something right. I'd like Nora Roberts to spend a little more time in the mind of Daniel MacGregor. I'd like to see just how Daniel figures out who is right for whom and how he knows things will always work to his expectations. Is it magic or an insight that is rare?

After some thought, Daniel decided that one of his business associates needed a vacation. Since he was the perfect man for his daughter Serena, he encouraged Justin Blade to take a cruise to relax. Daniel figured that since Justin was a gambler and owner of a casino, he would just happen to visit the onboard casino once or twice and that would all it would take to get this romantic escapade on it's way.

What Daniel didn't expect was that Serena would not want to marry Justin right off, but instead work with him at the casino for awhile.

It started out very good, and It was hard to put down. I liked the drama and excitement in it. Nora Roberts is a terrific writer.

I have read this book 3 or 4 times and it gets better with each reading. I loved Serena and Justin and the whole MacGregor clan. I kept trying to picture the actor who would play Justin if the book were made into a movie. I haven't picked out anyone yet because he is just special to me.
