Anything and everything that went into one of his productions was checked and rechecked, most often personally.

She didn’t even wear a turban. The woman who opened the door of the comfortable suburban home in Newport Beach looked as though she would more likely be found at a bridge table than a séance. She smelled of lilacs and dusting powder, not musk and mystery.

nice book

Three short stories that are entertaining but not her best work. Roberts has become an even better writer since these were originally published, but they are good romances and a Nora Roberts junky like me wants to read and own all of her works.

She remembers all the pianos but they are all gone. Van is brought up to date with her best friend-back then, and her brother Brady Tucker who's also a doctor now.
She meets with not only her friends but learns of the things in her own mother's life and the reasoning behind why her mother gave her up to her father.
Tender scenes and shocking ones...

Island of Flowers

The pilot, Dylan O'Brien, half owner, sees her as an upscale princess and treats her as such. She studies him while he's conducting business and sees how surprised he is to see her.
She learns the truth about her education and how her father had paid for it all and then some...

Clarissa Bass is the fortune teller. She hopes to protect her mother and their life.

Lots of background information about the production of a documentary series. Hot steamy sex scenes.

The stories in this book were mediocre with the first one, "Unfinished Business," being, in my opinion, the best in the bunch. However, even that story wasn't what I expect from picking up a Nora novel. The book itself would never have been my choice (a co-worker passed it on to me to read). All three stories were the same old, same old. Girl meets boy, girl and boy are at each other's throats, then girl and boy have sex, then they fall in love. One mistakes the other's intentions but in the end all is happily ever after. The stories lacked substance. "Island of Flowers" at least took us on a nice tour of the Hawaiian Islands, however the female lead in that story, Lainey Simmons, was nothing but a milk toast, annoying creature as you watched her fall apart (but immediately fall in love even though he was downright arrogant and rude) under the influence of Dillon O'Brian, her father's business partner. "Mind Over Matter" was a boring and ridiculous story of a clairvoyant mother/daughter, the daughter, A.J. (Aurora) working as a talent agent and involved with a producer, David Brady, who wants to produce a show with her mother in the starring role. The ending was tiresome with all the female/male mind games and misinterpreted emotions - very ho hum and enough to put you to sleep for lack of a storyline. The one story that was anywhere near decent to my mind was "Unfinished Business" about a world renowned concert pianist (Vanessa Sexton) coming home to make amends with her mother with whom she had never really had a relationship. She hooks up with her childhood flame, Brady Tucker, the good doctor in town and learns quite a bit about not only her mother but the feelings she and Brady begin to rekindle as the story moves along. All in all, this book is very early Nora and while I am an avid Nora fan, I feel the stories were definitely not worth the time reading. Nora has some excellent early works so don't let this bad egg discourage your reading them. "The Villa," "Homeport," "Carolina Moon," "River's End" and "Honest Illusions" are just a few of her early works and part of a very long list that are definitely worth the read.
As with pretty much all authors, they get better with time and this is a patchy collection of Roberts' early writing for Silhouette romances. There are three short novels in here but I have to say I prefer some of them to her later supernatural stuff. If anything they are shorter, punchier but are wildly romantic

Island of flowers is the best of these where Laine returns to her father (as an adult) after her mother's death. Laine's parents were divorced and it was bitter, Laine wants to reconcile with her father, but unfortuately her father's business partner, Dillon, believes she has only returned for the money. Sparks fly, Dillon treats her badly, but in the end all turns out for the best - as it should!

In Mind Over Matter (which I didn't really enjoy a great deal) it was all about a clairvoyant mother and daughter who are to be the subject of a documentary, but the daughter clashes with the director - as you do - and, well sparks fly......and love....well anyway.

Finally in Unfinished business a pianist who has been pressured as a child to perform returns home after 8 years to reconcile herself with her mother and childhood sweetheart...sparks fly and.....well anyway.....

Like I said these are patchy - and these are romances and they are nice for that, but Nora Roberts definitely got better with time, it is nice to have a collection of her early works which are often tricky to get hold of, to compare and enjoy her early romances.
