Remember When

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 ransacked.

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."
