Produktinformation


Mehr über den Autor

Was macht eine Hausfrau und Mutter von zwei Kindern, wenn ein Schneesturm sie von der Außenwelt abschneidet? Nora Roberts schreibt einen Roman, der zwei Jahre später, 1981, unter dem Titel "Rote Rosen für Delia" veröffentlicht wird. Sie denkt sich weitere Geschichten aus und gilt inzwischen mit einer Gesamtauflage ihrer Romane von über 400 Millionen Exemplaren als eine der erfolgreichsten Romanautorinnen weltweit. Nora Roberts wurde 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, geboren und ist in zweiter Ehe mit einem Zimmermann verheiratet. Das Paar betreibt gemeinsam einen Buchladen, in dem sicherlich auch die Werke angeboten werden, die sie unter den Pseudonymen J.D. Robb, Jill March oder Sarah Hardesty veröffentlicht.

This is the story of police negotiator Phoebe McNamara and Duncan Swift, the "lucky guy from next door"
They first meet when one of Duncan's former employees wants to comit suicide and for him it is love at first sight.
But Phoebe is not one for impulsive decisions.
As a singlemother of a seven year old daughter who's husband ran away because he needed more freedom and a daughter to an agoraphobic mother who didn't leave the house in ten years she is rather selfsuficient and doesn't need anyone to tell her what to do.
But there is sombody who wants to change that. A murderer with the sole purpose of hurting her. He wants to show that everything she accomplished in her job he can destroy easily and so shoots a boy after a solved hostage situation.
This book is well written - sometimes it goes slow - and sometimes it goes very fast - and at the most unexpected scenes you find wonderful humor!
The one thing I couldn't agree with - the end came too soon. It was as if something was missing. Everything was accomplished, the lovers found each other, the bad guy found and then zip and "the End".
But nonetheless I'm sure every Nora Roberts fan will love this book.

Many Nora Roberts fans will be surprised that this book explores how women can overcome violence in ways that are more along the lines of a Robert Crais thriller than a typical romance. If you don't care for violence, skip this book. If you are open to a story with lots of excitement, threat, and romance, you'll probably like the story quite a bit.

Phoebe MacNamara has a challenging job as a hostage negotiator with the Savannah, Georgia police department. How does a young mother end up in such a line of work? Well, if you've been a hostage whose life is saved by a negotiator, that experience could be quite an influence.

The romance part of the story opens quickly as Phoebe talks down a potential jumper and meets the attractive Duncan Swift who is immediately smitten. Swift plays a Prince Charming role in the story as an ideal man for a strong woman.

The violence soon emerges, however, when Phoebe is attacked and has to fight for the respect of her colleagues. In the background, it's clear that someone has a deep obsession about Phoebe. Can she cope with these threats?

Those challenges would be enough for a single woman, but Phoebe is the person who holds her family together . . . and has to deal with a mother who won't leave the house and a rambunctious seven-year-old daughter as a single mom. Her ex-husband puts even more stress on Phoebe before the book ends.

The book is wonderfully developed in terms of exploring the psychology of a woman handling a dangerous job while trying to lead a normal life in all other ways. Ms. Roberts does a nice job of developing some abnormal psychology at the same time to put her heroine into context.

Phoebe McNamara is Savannah's chief hostage negotiator. She meets Duncan Swift when she has to talk one of his former employees out of committing suicide by jumping from a roof. Both are attracted to each other, but Phoebe has reasons to avoid a relationship. There's also a dangerous criminal who wants to harm Phoebe - but can they find him and stop him before something horrible happens? Well. Nora Roberts is a very prolific writer, but this certainly isn't one of her best novels. Phoebe's reason for thinking that she can't have a relationship with a man is plausible, which is definitely a refreshing change from the myriad of other "oh no, I must never fall in love"-romance novel heroes and heroines. But despite the fact that I usually like Nora Roberts' writing style, Phoebe and Duncan manage to get on my nerves, at least in the first half of the book. You see, they are very honest people, which shouldn't be a bad thing, but they literally share each and every thought that goes through their heads, which is. It makes their conversations quite stilted and unrealistic and simply weird. The sex scenes also lack a certain something; they're utterly unsexy and unromantic. On the other hand, the book's pace picks up in the second half when the suspense plot is pushed to the foreground.
