Though the book is a romantic suspense, it doesn't have a high-intensity, frenetic feel that you get in other romantic suspense books (such as those by Karen Rose, Beverly Barton,...more
WOW…just WOW! I just finished Nora Robert's new book "Tribute" and my heart is still racing. I don't know how La Nora does it, but she has written yet another sure-to-be-bestseller that is truly a romantic suspense. The story softly, quietly pulls you in as the hero and heroine become real to you and you begin to feel their excitement, uncertainty, happiness, anxiety, joy, fear, and finally their triumph. It's a stunning emotional rollercoas...more
Cilla was interesting enough on her own, too—a former child actor with enough residual resources to build a new career in a new place and have th...more
Let me give you an example with Tribute. The instant the heroine's ex-husband showed up, I expected him to be a bastard and/or to get a rivalry going for her affections with the guy she was obviously inter...more
But the mystery part was fun. Trying to figure out "who done it" and all! We got enough clues that I started blaming everyone!
And once Cilla and Ford finally get together... Whoa do they sizzle... A LOT!! ♥
** Audiobook was well done **
This latest offering from Nora Roberts really does have everything I've come to love in her writing: mystery, romance, great character development, and a truly interesting storyline.
With the added fun additions of flipping houses, hosts of HGTV shows, graphic novelists, actresses and screen legends, and high school English teachers, all branches of career and l...more
Así de buena era.
Estoy muy muy feliz de haberme arriesgado.
Me gusta el personaje de Ford, realmente ese chico.. ese hombre es... soñado. En el buen sentido. Se siente real, con esperanzas reales, con los pies en la tierra.
Creo que me ha conquistado un poco, hasta se me ha escapado una lagrimita cuando dice esas cosas tan bonit...more

Tribute didn’t have the uber-rich people, though it did have two characters with jobs that allowed them flexible schedules. Cilla McGowan is a former child star turned contractor who has come to Virginia to re-do her grandmother’s...more

Cilla and Ford were so wonderfully alive in this book. Cilla's passion for restoring and creating and rebuilding was vivid and lively. Ford's ability to debate like a hardcore fanboy and *see* things with an artist's eye made me swoon. I think the fangirl in me was cryin...more

Any ways, Tribute, great read, if I was into mystery suspense. Which I'm not, I don't have the patience or the stomach for this stop regardless of...more
I won't bother with anymore of her novels. They are trite, boring, and lacking in any substance.
Roberts' attempt to create a modern strong woman heroine (she's an expert with power tools!she aced the Contractor licensing test!)was rather over...more
