      Well narrated by Gabra Zackman Difficult to rate this book NR wrote way back in 1986 Twenty five years ago Parts of it definitely dipped down to 3 stars, but others were excellent At certain times the pacing is off Neat to see the romantic suspense writer she will become, but hard not to compare it to the best of to her current work I love a good treasure hunt and a diving story, so I m going with four stars.

      Okay, so now I ve read a Nora Roberts I m rather thankful that this was a library lend and not something I bought spoilershed The book is dated, severely dated in fact The hero is smoking without any comment by anyone around him, he simply goes ahead and not only visits the parents of the heroine without her knowledge, he even takes her ten year old daughter alone out to the zoo and buys her stuff Today this comes over as rather skeevy, just as his comments about said daughter.The writing was so [...]

      Another good NR oldie Wonderful suspense with the drug trafficking ring, great pacing, and wonderful hero The heroine bugged me, though, which came as a huge surprise And it s because of her indecision, her insecurity, and her inability to face the truth about herself, that lowered the rating for this story I could ve done without all her angst.Still, it was a pleasurable, quick, exciting, and intriguing read.

      Risky Business is another one of Nora Roberts earlier books,circa 1986 And she combines mystery and romance very well.Her focus character, Liz Palmer,was easy to relate to Single mom, jilted by rich boyfriend while pregnant, starts over in Cozumel.Works her way up from hotel maid to owning her own business Fiercely independent and determined not to expose herself to the hurt of romantic involvement again I liked her A murder mystery begins almost immediately, so this is a page turner for that re [...]

      These were some REALLY DUMB villains Aside from that, it was a good read for what it was an 80s romance You know what to expect and you get it.ough, the hero wasn t NEARLY as big a jerk as I ve read from other books in the same time period.

      Loved the setting, Carribbean Again, some romance, a d some mystery Good combination

    9. Lauribooks on said:

      El libro en general est bien La trama es buena, aunque puede ser algo predecible, sorprende bastante una vez resuelto el caso Lo que no me ha gustado de esta novela es que el final es un poco precipitado, se quedan muchas cosas en el aire, sin resolver, que a m me hubiera gustado conocer Creo que este libro ganar a mucho m s si se le a adieran 50 o 100 p ginas detallando lo que sucede desde que se resuelve el caso para poder entender bien el final de la novela y hacerlo cre ble, ya que hay un sa [...]

      Nora Roberts tiene una enorme capacidad de entretener, cierto que algunos libros son mucho mejores que otros, pero no podemos negar su enorme capacidad de entretener, con libros rom nticos con toques de suspenso e intriga.Enmarcado en la isla de Cozumel, los protagonistas se ven envueltos en un asesinato y narcotraficantes, aunque el argumento pareciera pesado, la realidad es que es muy pero que muy ligero.

      I ve read so many Nora Roberts books over the years, I m really out of compliments on her work However, I ll give it a shot LOL This is a typical Nora Roberts book A little different in my opinion than her usual stuff, but nevertheless excellent You have a heroine who became pregnant in college and for reasons explained in the book, she leaves her home and even her country to start a new life with her daughter She winds up creating a successful business and a comfortable life for her and her chi [...]

      To a point, I can understand why this story is so offensively patriarchal the book is from the late 80s things were different then However, a weak willed heroine plus an over bearing to the point of ridiculousness hero with a completely unrealistic masculine pov, multiplied by an unbelievable in a bad way love story, equaled lots of skipped pages I enjoyed the mystery suspense portions so much than the romance, as the latter had me stopping multiple times to groan or roll my eyes It sucked, bec [...]

    13. Mirjam on said:

      Risky Business is one of Nora Roberts earlier works, which shows It s a nice book with lots of suspense, but it lacks the superb quality of her later works I find it difficult to refrain myself from comparing it to her current works, which would not be fair The characters are likeable, the suspense is well done and the mystery well thought out I enjoyed reading it, but I don t think I will re read this book as I often do her other works.

      I actually think I wanted this to be shorter, which is not something I say about a category length title very often.

      Diving for loveNot sure how I missed reading this when it was first released as I ve been reading Nora Roberts for than 30 years The ending surprised me and I loved Jonas and Liz together Having been alone and pregnant at 18, Liz has always been independent Jonas provides the support and encouragement she needs to face her past to have the future she can only imagine Perfect Nora Roberts story with suspense and romance to keep the reader on the edge of their seat

    18. Pamela Gibson on said:

      This was an old Nora Roberts book It was a very predictable story with a hero who was a little too forceful with the heroine at times, but still a good read Her newer books have far depth, but I still like to read her oldies to see how far she s come.

    19. Linda Johnson on said:

      Written in 1986, this classic Roberts romance does have a mystery based in Mexico at a skin diver s rental lessons shop I still enjoy these earlier books, though the characters are less developed than her later ones.

    20. Betsy on said:

      Nota Roberts Doesn t Disappoint Bought this kindle version of Risky Business because I have always liked her writing My family was talking about getting rid of paper copies I said let me read them ONE time

    21. Hannah Crane on said:

      It was a great story Captivated me and kept me interested It would have gotten 4 or 5 stars but the love story really rubbed me the wrong way and the circumstances that the main characters got together intimately felt very wrong Overall, it would have been a great story if not for that.

    22. Lois Buck on said:

      Great as alwaysI always enjoy Nora Roberts books I was sorry to see this one end A young woman is caught up in Risky Business not of her own making I loved the interesting twist at the end Some romance and a lot of mystery and suspense Can t ask for anything

    23. Paola Emiliozzi on said:

      Una intriga que hubiera estado mejor, si se le dedicar n m s p ginas y se hubieran descrito mas a profundidad los personajes La intriga se resuelve demasiado pronto, y en poqu simas p ginas.Por lo dem s muy t pico de la autora.

    24. Margaret Shumaker on said:

      Good early Nora RobertsIt s fun to read an early Nora Roberts to compare to recent books which are complex I enjoyed this story and characters and it was fun to see the seeds of her mature work.

    25. Charlene Rowe on said:

      WonderfulReally enjoyed this story Nora is masterful at her craft, both in characterization as well as plot development Yes this is an older story but it holds up in this age too Loved it as I love almost all Nora Roberts books.
