I was surprised that it really was much better than I thought it would be. That works out well because someone gave me several of her books saying that I really "MUST" read them.
I was pretty surprised that I liked this one as I tend to not like her earlier works as much. I believe this was originally written in 1995.
I liked the characters. Jed was sometimes a bit too not nice. But I liked Dora's character a lot. Very fun and relaxed and didn't let his attitude bring hers down.
This was a really fun read. Sometimes there was a tad too much focus on the villains but overall I loved this one. NR really knows how to draw the e ...more
Dora's quick wit makes this book. Nora Roberts does a great job writing her, and writing the interactions between Dora and Jed. Jed is a complex character, but even though he acts like a jerk on several occasions, he isn't an unlikable person. In fact, his struggles are some of the most realistic I've seen i ...more
Jed is a cop on personal leave since he brought down a drug lord who killed his sister. He is very angry at the world and have a big problem letting people under his skin. Especially a hot landlady.
The story of Dora and Jed is, as usual with Nora Roberts, filled with witty d ...more

Dora Conroy is from a family of actors and owns an antique shop. She rents her adjacent flat above her shop to Captain Jed Skimmerhorn. Sparks fly at the first glance but Jed is haunted by demons of his past and running from feelings he doesn't want to feel, he is determined to keep his distance from the fiery and all too sexy, Dora.
Dora, on the other hand, believes in going with her feelings and has an expressive heart.
What will happen when these two co ...more
I snagged Hidden Riches off the shelf at my library for one reason: it was the only Nora Roberts book there that I hadn't read yet. I didn't glance at the back, didn't look at the book cover...and, boy, I'm glad I did.
I was pleasantly surprised by the two main characters in Hidden Riches. Although the character types are fairly familiar - the gruff and reluctant hero falling for the warm, engaging heroine - ...more
Loved the romance and the banter between Dora and Jed. Her mother and father were a lot too "sweetsie" but the rest of the characters were pretty good. Except for Finley. He seemed way, way too bad.
Now I read across several genres, Jeffery Deaver, Thomas Perry, Nora Roberts, Maeve Binchy, Veronica Roth, Bernard Cornwell... I love romance, mystery, adventure and real life. My husband only reads the news and romances, but I can't recommend this to him because, even tho it is a ...more
My main problem with the book was the romance, it seemed cliché and the whole "troubled man who never loved gets magically cured by loving woman" trope was really annoying to me. Actually, the male character was annoying but I loved the female character, she's really interesting and honest and if ...more

She grinned into the sunlight. It might not have been the world's most romantic proposal, but it suited her. It suited her just fine.”
