✪ Nightwork ✪ Nora Roberts ✪


 Release Date 24th May 2022


  Sunday Times bestselling author Nora Roberts returns with a brand new standalone novel

When he was nine, and his mother had her first deadly dance with cancer, Harry became a thief. Someone had to find food and pay the mortgage even if his mother was too sick to work. When his mother finally succumbs to cancer, Harry leaves Chicago but somehow he can't quite leave all of his past behind.

Harry lives a quiet, careful, rootless life - he can't afford to attract attention or get attached - until he meets Miranda. But just when Harry thinks he has a chance at happiness his old life comes back to haunt him. Harry has had dealings with some bad people in his past but none more dangerous than Carter LaPorte and Harry is forced to run. But no matter what name he uses or where he goes, Harry cannot escape. If he is ever going to feel safe Harry must face down his enemy once and for all.

Only then can he hope to possess something more valuable than anything he has ever stolen.



ARC received from Hachette Australia for an honest review

It has been a while since I have read a non-Roarkey book by Nora Roberts/JD Robb, however Nightwork was a great way to get back into the Nora-verse.

It is different from the other NR books I have read, but that is not a bad thing. It is a sign of a great writer that they can throw things at us in a different light and I love it all the same.

Nightwork drew me in from the first word to the last. Harry's story is heartbreaking yet full of hope.  It will keep you on your toes, waiting for the shoe to drop.. again.

Watching him outrun his past and forge a new future was a rollercoaster... just when you think he can finally move on, he is pulled back into his "night job"

 It was a meandering story that at times felt long and painful, but we knew that Nora Roberts was leading us somewhere and it was going to be worth it when we go there.

I would definitely read more books like this from Nora Roberts
