For the last three days I've joined the ranks of the officially unemployed. My time at the insurance company came to an end this Monday and now I have time on my hands. For those of you who read my last review of Nora Roberts, you'll know I'm not yet convinced by all the hype. But I didn't pick up Risky Business because it was written by Nora Roberts. I bought Risky Business because it was set on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. If you know me well then you already know Mexico is one of my favourite places in the world and I've fond memories of my time in Playa del Carmen which overlooks the beautiful island of Cozumel.
Risky Busines: The Basics - When Liz's employee and lodger ends up sleeping with the fishes Jerry turns up asking questions about his twin brother's murder. Liz doesn't realise she is embroiled in the secret life Jonas lived until her life is threatened. As they embark on thier quest to learn what happened to Jonas Liz and Jerry are dragged into the criminal underworld and their own lives, and hearts, are put at risk.
For me, Risky Business was like being taken back on holiday
Already fondly connected with the setting of the novel I found myself easily slipping into the plot. I loved the contrast created between indentical twins Jerry and Jonas. The reason I stopped reading the standard Silouhette romance novels was that they all became a bit samey after the first hundred or two. The interesting thing about Risky Business I didn't see the twists in the plot coming. I actually enjoyed it!
Risky Business = 4\5
So far Nora Roberts has a thumbs down for Partners and thumbs up for Risky business. I guess maybe I'll have to go best 2 out of 3?
