Book Review: The Witness by Nora Roberts

The WitnessThe Witness by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit this is one of my favorite Nora Roberts books. It's more thriller than romance and kept me reading all day! This book is cleverly divided into three sections:

1. Liz, in which we meet the stifled 16 year old uber-smart girl who gets wrapped up in a Mafia crime.
2. Abigail, the paranoid woman-on-the-run Liz becomes.
3. Elizabeth, who bravely attempts to love and put a rest to her demons and fear.

The book is filled with rich characters, a great little community, believable family dynamics, and some heart-pounding moments. Definitely recommended for Roberts fans, as well as those who just like an entertaining thriller/romance. That being said, it's still a fairly "fluffy" NR read, so I can't give it 5 stars.

  1. Ooh I'm glad you liked it. She's my favorite fluffy author (& not so fluffy with the Eve Dallas series). I'm on a waiting list at the library for it. I just checked & I'm #18 on the list. Maybe I'll get it by Christmas - ha!

  2. This review does spark some interest and inspire me to rush out and get it! Haven’t read one of her books in some time, but after listening to bookreportradio(dot)com last weekend, where Elaine briefly discussed it, I think it’s time for some "thriller-romance" in my life! Their books change weekly, so I don’t always find the time to follow up before the next batch is recommended, but pleased I did a quick search on this one and came across your site. Thanks.
