Een leuke combinatie van spanning, drama en romantiek.

Really hard to get into for the first hundred pages or so, but then it picked up. All in all, pretty good. I probably would have enjoyed it more if the font hadn't played havoc with my blind-as-a-bat eyes.

Interesting plot and written in a way that keeps your attention. A number of the twists weren't all that surprising, but they were done in a intriguing way. For a daughter of a crime lord, Belle is incredibly naïve. Did she really think it was actually charitable donations? If TV has taught me anything, it's that 'charitable donations' is code for some sort of dirty money. I also liked the relationship presented- it completely took a backseat to everything that was happening.

On a down note, I r
Once Upon a Twilight
Isabella was born into a family that she loved but her strong moral upbringing made her distance from them. Their family fortune was made by smuggling high tech equipment to the highest bidder. In his death bed her father gives her a disk and ask her to make things right. Needless to say that her life is turned upside down and that includes her love life. The book takes an unexpected turn and every chapter has new clues and new intrigues. The book is a good read but it will not keep you glued to ...more

Bon, ça se laisse lire.
C'est du Harlequin vieille école. Si vous cherchez des scène hot, passez votre chemin. Les scènes d'amour sont décrites en 5 lignes. En fait, il ne faudrait même pas utiliser le pluriel. Et il n'y en a qu'une (quand je disais que c'est Old School!).
Pourquoi 3 étoiles,alors ? Parce que l'histoire se tient. On s'attache aux héros Bella et Sandro. L'intrigue policière est plus importante que la romance finalement. C'est bien écrit.

Isabella Joubert's inheritance from her father, a man she loved but could not trust, was a disk...that named names. Another group thought she had a different disk than she actually had. In their trying to find the disk, "Belle" had her house trashed, her neighbor murdered, her ex-lover murdered, and fear beyond comprehension. Forced to turn to Sandro Marchese, the man she'd left 7 years earlier, she finds he's the only one she can trust, when once she trusted him not at all.
This is more of a mystery novel than romance. The love story doesn't start off until 200+ pages into the book, then we're let down by how weak the heroine is regarding the hero. Apparently, he betrayed her in the past, and she accepts him back without ANY groveling what so ever. This tends to ruin the book for me.

By far, my least favorite from this very talented author.

I enjoyed this fast-paced murder mystery and liked the romantic 'dance' between the main female character and her good looking male opposite who said he was one of the good-guys, but was he? There were also questions about her brother and sister. Could she - should she - trust them? Everything becomes clear in the end which made it totally satisfying.

Mooi, spannend verhaal.

Full of suspense and twists, this is the story of a woman called to her father's deathbed and then the target of unsavory characters looking for something he gave her.
Jessie Lalande
Light reading. I enjoyed this book.
Intriguing but not too deep. Characters flushed out well without overly powerful. A bit predictable but still some surprises. Pleasant and quick read.
