    her newest Legacy (2021) is fabulous.


  2. Carla: 6 years ago

    I have a Combined novel entitled ‘The MacGregors; Daniel ~ Ian’ which separated out are the books ‘For Now, Forever’ being Daniel’s story and ‘In From the Cold’ being Ian’s story. In looking up the orders of her books I found that Ian’s story is missing from the lineup. copyright says 1990


  3. Debtak: 12 years ago

    While Roberts/Robb remains one of my favorite writers, I have been disappointed with her latest efforts. It almost seems as if this writer cannot think of new ways to present her material. I understand that it would be a challenge to come up with new characters, settings and action after having so many books in print, but Roberts/Robb used to hold my attention. Her award-winning “formula” has become way too predictable, and I do not rush out to get the new releases. The Boonsboro Inn books read like a how-to manuals for building your own B&B. I recommend the Eve and Rourke “In Death” series, the Quinn Brother Chesapeake Bay series, the Concannon Sisters trilogy, the Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy and stand alones such as The Reef, Carolina Moon and Birthright.
