Five things Friday: Five Favorite Nora Roberts books

Happy Friday! I am nearly done with my book challenge (WTF). I have about a week left and will hopefully make it! For today’s post I am bringing to you my five favorite books by my favorite author Nora Roberts. Enjoy!

Black Hills

Set in the Black Hills, Dr. Lillian Chance faces great danger when someone starts attacking her wildlife refuge she established. Faced with terrifying danger, she needs to turn to Cooper Sullivan, the man who broke her heart as a teenager.

The antagonist’s crazy mind and vengeful nature keeps you on the edge of your seat. I also really enjoyed this because it has amazingly interesting facts about animals – reading a Nora Roberts book always teaches you some random trivia.

Chasing Fire

Rowena Tripp is a smoke jumper in Missoula and she loves living life on the edge. When it becomes clear someone on base is sabotaging equipment, she needs to start questioning everyone she trusts the most.

This was my FIRST book I read for the challenge – WOW. It means I haven’t reread this book in a year, and I loved it, so I really can’t wait to read it after I’m done.

The Witness

The night Elizabeth decides to defy her over bearing, cold mother, ends in disaster. She meets Ilya Volkov, part of a Mafia organization, and the night starts innocently but she witnesses her friend get murdered. She narrowly escapes death herself, manages to call the police and gets taken into protective custody. Her mother rejects her and she starts relying on the two agents protecting her. They both die, and Elizabeth flees once again.

Years later, Elizabeth, now Abigail lives in Bickford. She meets handsome and nosey police Chief Brooks Gleason and his inquisitiveness eventually frustrates her enough to tell him everything. They start a relationship and Abigail starts contemplating bringing Volkov down permanently.

This was Roberts’ 200th book and she has amazingly just improved. I have no idea how anyone can get 200 stories onto paper, so she really must be incredibly hardworking and talented. The Witness was an addictive read – Elizabeth was just a teen rightfully rebelling against a very strict parent and her life got ruined. The way she rebuilt herself was truly touching to read about, and her eventual revenge was so satisfying.

The Search

After Fiona escaped the clutches of serial killer George Allen Perry, she starts rebuilding her life with a dog training school – in remembrance of her fiance and his K9 dog that gave their lives to save hers. She meets Simon Doyle through the training school and they start dating. They are both in danger when it becomes clear that there is a copycat serial killer on the loose, intent on killing Fiona as an ode to Perry.

Serial killers fascinate me – it is probably a bit sick – and I always enjoy reading and trying to understand what goes on in their minds. The Search focuses on the calculated madness of Perry, Fiona’s courage to rebuild her life and Simon’s journey to being a responsible dog owner. It is really good and it is one of those books where you love dogs even more than usual because they are so awesome.

Northern Lights

This is a great book – Nate Burke is a depressed policeman moving to Lunacy, Alaska to restart his life as the sheriff. He starts dating Meg – an independent pilot and slowly starts getting a grip on things. When a murdered man is found frozen in the mountain it is clear that he has been there for a few years. People start dropping dead and Nate knows someone is desperately trying to protect their presence on the mountain that fateful day.

Seeing the Northern Lights is definitely on my bucket list, so enjoying this book was easy. It was also good to read about a man rebuilding his life and finding his way.

What are your favorite books by a specific author?
