Not a risk to read

Nora Roberts always builds characters and their surroundings with skill, these 2 stories are no exception. `Partners' and `The Art of Deception' are 2 books previously published but not readily available until now in "Worth the Risk'. First this should get the proverbial gold star for not hiding the fact that they are previously published books, (1985 and 1986). So many authors/publishers seem to try to hide that fact that they are issuing works you might have read before. Both stories of course deal with romance and you know in the end the couples will find each other, but Nora Roberts is so good at adding a dash of mystery, suspense and describing the scenes and surroundings it really makes for an enjoyable reading. The first story `Partners' deals with 2 newspaper reporters in New Orleans. You can just hear and picture the newsroom and the swamp; and best of all you are not quite sure of the surrounding mystery's solution. The second story is `The Art of Deception'. It deals with 3 artists and forgeries in a castle along the Hudson River. Once more, until the end you are not sure of who is responsible for any events or what is going on - you wind up making the discoveries and solving the puzzling activities along with the characters. That alone is extraordinary for romance novels where usually 10 pages in you really know exactly what is occurring. Nora Roberts is indeed the consummate romance writer and this is not a risk of your time to read this.

I read the originals.

This is a reprint of two older books from Nora Roberts. Although Partners was ok, the Art of Deception was one of my favorite from her. It is playful and yet the father/daughter interaction is so moving - a daughter who wants to protect her father but knows he is not quite on the up-and-up. The dialog is so great, and I enjoyed the tale many years ago and will enjoy reading it again.
