Reading More: Honest Illusion

I was going to write this for you today but then decided that I wanted to share my triumph in getting the dishwasher up and running. That is going really long, though, so I decided to do this for today instead.

Honest Illusion, by Nora Roberts, is  a re-read for me. I read it a long time ago, but saw a copy of it in the used book store recently so I picked it up.

From Amazon:

With Honest Illusions, national bestselling author Nora Roberts unveils a world where passion and mystery entwine, where nothing is as it seems.

The daughter of a world-renowned magician, Roxy Nouvelle has inherited her father’s talents—and his penchant for jewel thievery. Into this colorful world comes Luke Callahan, an escape artist who captures her heart—and keeps secrets that could shatter all her illusions…

Honest Illusion, by Nora Roberts is just about what you expect from Nora. An engaging bit of bubble gum for your brain. I’m not always a huge fan of her books, I find most of them to be cookie cutter without the added benefit of frosting and sprinkles.

This book didn’t lack in frosting and sprinkles, though. This particular one has some fun twists and turns and a few steamy scenes written in for fun. The characters are interesting, the plot although sad and maddening at times, was interesting, and possible best of all, it was about magic. I don’t know where it came from, but I seem to have a soft spot for magic.

I don’t usually think books should be made into movies, but this is one that I think they could make it work.  (It looks like a company called Vladafilms might have made it in 2010, but I can’t find any reference to it other than it’s YouTube Trailer.)

Have you read this one? Any of her other work?

    I love Nora Roberts. When I lived in Boonsboro, MD, my kids went to daycare up the road from her house in Keedysville. She owned a little cafe bookstore in my town and someone handed me an Irish trilogy to read from their local author. I love some of her books and others not so much. Soooooo. can I borrow this one when I see you in July ?
