Nora Roberts, bestselling author or over a one hundred books, both romance and suspense, is one of the best loved novelists of all time. With this series, she has done it again. She had brought these four women into our hearts and grew to love them as they discovered the one thing that could make them happy forever. I look forward to her next books and series in the near future.
