Book Description

Cozumel had been home to Liz Palmer for ten years. She was settled, respected. Her Black Coral Dive Shop was the best on the island. She no longer missed Houston, or thought about the man who didn't want her or their child.

And for two short weeks, Cozumel was home to Jerry Sharpe, the diving instructor she'd hired. Until they found him—murdered. Suddenly Jonas Sharpe, Jerry's twin brother, stormed into her well ordered life with grief in his eyes and revenge in his heart. He plunged them both into the desperate world of drug smugglers—and into the dangerous depths of passion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Re-release that is a bit dated. January 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
This was not a bad romance except that it was a bit dated. Lots of smoking and no cell phones, maybe a few other things also that made you think what the heck was going on. I liked the story and the romance was good, being a re-release I wish Nora had edited the story a bit to being it into the current decade, I believe it would have been better received and enjoyed by a wide audience. The story was good and I love a sweet romance that doesn't take long to read, I'm a sucker for the Happily Ever After ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid story. January 17, 2012
Format:Paperback
As someone mentioned this is a re-release, & I recall having read it a long time ago BUT I enjoyed thoroughly it this time around! Yes, the smoking is tedious and silly in 2012 but that was in the 1980s and things were lots different then so it seems to me must be taken in that context.

Now, me, I liked the characters, no one got on my nerves & the nice twists & turns were fun cuz I for sure didn't see them coming, except of course one knows romance will out :)

I wasn't sure about the certificate for diving being required there, don't know about that neck of the woods? But because I had doubts, wasn't upset that it wasn't required AND loved the bit about how one can snorkel underwater using the air trick! Wish I'd known about it when I snorkeled off Antigua years back. Really liked the location and descriptions too. I could see how the heroine had gotten into such a rigid way of thinking as she went through so much at such a young age when it would have impacted her differently than if she'd been older, but, what was she, 18 yrs. old - that's pretty young, so didn't find her narrow views of relationships unrealistic. I liked Jonas and Moralas too - he had a dry sense of humor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay May 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Nora Roberts books, and I wasn't crazy about this one. Mainly because I didn't find the romance very believable. The chemistry was wrong, and the transition from rival to all of a sudden attraction and interest and love was not smooth and believable. The book was easy to read, but not fun like Nora Robert's usual. I usually devour her books. My recommendation would be to skip this one. Read her new Inn at Boonsboro series books, they're great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a fave NR book October 11, 2012
By CM
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Nora Roberts but this is not going on my fave list. In looking at my NR library, I much prefer her newer books over her oldest (1980s). If you're like me, then focus on her latest, like the Inn Boonsboro trilogy (which has some roots in real life as she and her family have restored an inn of the same name), the wedding series and books like The Witness.

As others have said, this story is dated (smoking, etc). My biggest objection is that the lead female has left home in disgrace, never returning even to the US, because she got pregnant out of wedlock. Given that time has passed, yes, out of wedlock babies was a bigger deal in the 80s but I have trouble with the melodramatic approach to this even more than the smoking. Having said that, I liked the development of the characters - Ms. Roberts is always good at developing characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dated and boring January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this because it was by Nora Roberts, who sometimes writes entertaining novels. However, this book felt like an amateur's version of the last book I read by her. Then I saw it was written sometime in the mid '90's, so maybe she was still honing her craft. I would have appreciated knowing up front it was a re-print or whatever it was because it was a waste of time and money. I give it 2 stars for being written by a woman who can really do good stuff sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Read December 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It's been quite some time that I sat down and read a book from front to back without putting it down, but that is exactly what I did with "Risky Business". Interesting characters, beautiful setting and just enough intrigue to keep it moving. A definite read for any romance/adventure reader.
