At the time though, it was a great way to get my mind off my 'harder' books, and it was available. I needed a romance at the time. It wasn't frothy like a lot of the thin ...more

Two strong, opinionated people are forced by a stipulation in a will to spend six months together, will they make it? Will they fall in love? I think it's obvious but then again this genre is not known for surprises but then again we do enjoy the journey.
This journey was quite good and the dialog was fun.
The moment Pandora encountered Micheal for the first time, I was hooked to this book. I read it years ago, but the fragrance of fresh and brutally honest love that I got from this novel is still with me. I do not like love stories because I read a lot them and somehow I did feel that Norah followed the theme of Judith McNaught in which protagonists hate each other at first but eventually fall in love. But perha ...more
A Will and a Way was a nice and enjoyable book. Pandora and Michael, distant relatives, lose their beloved uncle but inherit his manor and a lot of money if they manage to live together for six months.
They have known each other since they were little, for some reason they annoy each other. During the six months Pandora and Michael get to know each other in more intimate basis and of course realise they have loved one another for years.

they r left the majority of his estate - much to the disgust of the others - with one proviso. they must live in his house together for 6 months, the only problem is that they r only polite to one another in the company of their uncle.
it is obvious from the first chapter how it is going to go and frankly i could not get thru it quick enough to move onto another book

Well, after reading this I realized a very amusing thing. In almost every romance novel I read there is always a mother figure who prepares luscious dishes. She is the symbol of unconditional love and always tried to bring them closer. And you know what's the most endearing thing? She keeps the kitchen spick a ...more
I am not going to lie; this is not in any way a masterpiece. It’s also not as horrible as one would assume. I actually think it’s pretty okay.
Once the story gets going it’s fairly engaging. I have to admit that love stories where the characters initially dislike each other is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, even if this one isn’t as w ...more
Easy going, pleasant read. A good romance, an interesting bit of mystery, likable main characters. Not a bad way to spend an hour or so.
fairly standard plot--eccentric (and very very rich)relative leaves bulk of his estate to our hero and heroine(distant cousins) provided they both live in the mansion for the next six months. Of course they can't stand each other at the outset. Of course the other relatives do their best to sabotage the arrangement. ...more
I am generally a Nora Roberts fan (she just makes her characters so real and relatable, and doing ordinary day to day things like details about their careers! Anyway. And normally her family relationships are amazing and I just feel the love and wish I had so many siblings etc - like with the Inn Boobsboro trilogy! Anyway.), but this is definitely not one of her better books.
This is a book originally published in 1986. If nothing else, it shows how far her style has evolved. I don't recommend reading this because the plot is so thin and the characters are cardboard cutouts. I LOVE Nora Roberts but this was just a waste of 99¢ and a couple of hours of my time.
I look forward to reading more from this talented and seasoned author.
Tapi karena untuk mendapatkan warisan tersebut, keduanya harus tinggal bersama2, mau tidak mau harus di buat aturan main yang baik.
Itu yg di lakukan Pandora dan Michael, ketika mereka diwajibkan untuk tinggal bersama demi bisa mendapatkan warisan Paman Jolly yang antik.

A frustrating but exciting read with a very large inheritance at stake....an unexpected will of Uncle Foley and escalating mischief plus a possibility of a little romance makes this another enjoyable story from Nora Roberts.
During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write a story for her own entertainment. From the first page, she knew it was wha ...more
