Book Review: Irish ThoroughbredNovember 5, 2012
As Nora Roberts’ first published work, this fares well.
I may be partial to this book because Ms. Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and tops my list in the romance genre.
This book has a simple plot. There wasn’t much of a conflict. There’s the common theme on Silhouette novels about the hero being too macho to the point of being unreasonably dominant and the heroine to be such a “nice” and feminine girl, which, of course, may reflect the trends of the 80’s, when the book was published.
Still, I like this book. The characters may leave a lot to be desired, but the storytelling was great. Just enough drama, romance, and action to keep you reading until you finish it. This book is best for when you want to read something that you can finish in just a few hours. I even read this book more than once, and I still enjoy it every time.
