Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments Hi Joy. Welcome to the Geo Challenge.

I do not read much Nora Roberts, but I am curious about the book you have picked for Morocco. I do not see in the summary that it indicates that the book is set there. Have you read it?

I am asking because I have a book picked for the "Olive" portion and for the food, but not for the setting and it caught my eye.

I have read it before and I believe that a part of it takes place there. I'll probably be reading it sometime this coming week if not this weekend. The story jumps around a few places.


♥ Joy Joy ♥ (joylia) Cherie - Sorry I took so long to get this one done. I got distracted by a few other books..hahaha.

And to answer your question, yes, Morocco is part of the setting for Nora Robert's Without a Trace. The showdown between Trace and Gillian vs the bad guys (and where they rescue her brother and niece) takes place in Sefrou, Morocco. :)
