Remember When by Nora Roberts & J. D. Robb
This book contains two stories.
Laine Tavish is a small town antique store owner. She has escaped a
life on the run with her father, Big Jack O'Hara. Jack was a con man and
thief. Laine has settled down to a nice rural life when her long-lost
uncle comes into her store, gives her a cryptic message and runs
outside to die from a car accident. Soon afterwards Laine's house is
Max Gannon is working with the insurance company to
find some diamonds which have been stolen. Max and Laine team up to
find her father and the diamonds.
The second story is an In Death one.
Samantha Gannon arrives home to find her home-sitter and best friend
dead. Samantha was on a book tour promoting her book about her
grandparents, Laine and Max Gannon.
Was the murder because someone was looking for the diamonds that weren't recovered?
This was an interesting concept for a book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and
felt it was not at all like reading two short stories. It was
intriguing how the two stories even though written by the same person
had slightly different styles.
First Line: "A heroic belch of thunder followed the strange little man into the shop."
