    One thought on “The Welcoming”

    1. No, no, no, no.This novel conveniently summed up into a somewhat short but direct dialogue:'Hello, my name is a name so boring my readers forget''Oh Hello, my name is somewhat similar' Side note: Better romance than Romeo and Juliet like.'Soe the thing is, you're quite attractive Baby' Side note: Don't call me Baby if I've just met you. Period. Grrr.'Why, thank you, if you're in possession of a large specifically male anatomical feature I will befriend you and invite you to my bed''Shall we' Sid [...]

    2. I thought this was a newish book, it wasn't The moment the hero - FBI agent Roman de Winter posing as a handyman at our sweet heroine Charity's picaresque Washington inn - had to sneak out in the middle of the night to phone his contact, I figured out this was a very old book. Once I had got over that disappointment (and the fact the hero was a chain smoker! Yuk!) I enjoyed the book. Obviously it's not new Nora with all the ways in which she's improved as a writer in the last 30 years - the coup [...]

    3. I'm a big Nora Roberts fan and haven't read a book by her I didn't like, and The Welcoming is no exception. It's one of her early works, which does show, but it's still an enjoyable read. Roman and Charity are easy to fall for. The undercover FBI-agent and the charming owner of an idyllic inn fall head over heels in love, but there is danger to avert. A lovely romance is the perfect read on a Sunday morning!

    4. Já li melhor da autora, Roman e Charity apaixonam-se in the glimpse of an eye, muito insta love para mim! Tudo muito rápido e floreado talvez por se passar nos anos 80aquito!

    5. SOA Listening Challenge 2012, Track 4: Contemporary 1/4This is a fun but forgettable listen: while you run, do dishes, drive, basically, while doing something elseOT:FBI Agent Roman DeWinter goes undercover at a bed-and-breakfast inn on Orcas island to uncover a counterfeiting and smuggling ring. Suspicion is on the Inn's attractive upbeat owner, Charity Ford, who is heavily involved in all aspects of running the Inn. It becomes quickly clear to Roman that Charity is not a suspect. He finds she [...]

    6. This was a Sunday, in the garden, lazy read. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and read it in one sitting.It was a little predictable but it didn't spoil the story.The characters were interesting and the storyline was written in a way that makes you want to keep reading.Noras descriptions of characters and the area where the story is based are are always so amazing. I can really imagine who and where they are.I would definitely recommend this book if fancy a great short read.

    7. We can call it an Oldie ;) The brooding hero is being politically incorrect not for his bad habits but for smoking cigarettes :O :DStill an interesting reading.

    8. An ok book, especially when you consider when it was written. Not the best or most memorable, but it's pretty short and a quick read.

    9. I just wish her books didn't end!I always enjoy reading Nora Roberts books, but always want more. Even the trilogy and series. I feel as if the characters are people I know and want to hear more about how they are doing. It's nice to nearly always have a happy ending.

    10. Couldn't get through this book fast enough. Totally predictable from page one. I like passion and romance as much as the next person, but that was pretty much all this book consisted of. The villains were easy to spot - boring.

    11. Charity struggles to maintain her inn and is doing fairly well , until Roman strolls into her life as a handyman. He is actually FBI , in an undercover sting involving someone in her area or inn. It was not one of my favs but it is good.

    12. Old school romancePlot light, suspension of disbelief heavy, classic old school romance novel. Roberts has moved on to bigger and better things since this style.

    13. Roman DeWinter seorang agen yang bertugas untuk memnyelidiki kasus pencucian dan pemalsuan uang yang dicurigai beroperasi di sebuah penginapan milik Charity Ford. Untuk melaksanakan tugasnya tersebut, Roman menyamar sebagai tukang kayu di penginapan Charity, yang dicurigai sebagai salah satu anggota organisasi kejahatan yang sedang diselidiki. Dalam 24 jam perkenalannya dengan Charity Ford, Roman merasa yakin bahwa Charity tak bersalah. Charity bukanlah pelaku melainkan korban yang tak mengetahu [...]

    14. Not so nora robertsI found the story rather bland and not up to usual Nora Roberts standard. It felt churned out, quality over quantity should be the mantra of every writer

    15. Roman s’installe là où le mènent ses enquêtes et cette vie d’errance lui convient parfaitement. Cette fois, il s’agit d’une petite île près de Seattle, réputée pour les baleines qu’on y apercevoir. Il est là pour enquêter sur un trafic de devises canadiennes dont le principal suspect est la propriétaire d’une auberge sur cette île et va se faire engager comme bricoleur. Or, dès leur rencontre, une attirance indéniable se forme entre les deux protagonistes. La romance es [...]

    16. This is a pretty decent little book - nothing earth shattering or spectacular but it kept me entertained and I enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on FBI Agent Roman DeWinter who has come to Charity's inn on the Orcas Islands to investigate somethingy he's undercover, since Charity is also under suspicion. So he poses as a handyman and as surly as Roman is, Charity starts falling in love with him. What I enjoyed about Roman though is that, despite his gruff and sometimes rude behavior, once he [...]

    17. (¿Por qué no tiene una puntuación más baja? 1 estrella es muchísimo para este libro).¡Qué libro más maloooooooooo! Desperdicié mi tiempo y dinero en esta porqueria. Pero es un riesgo que se corre al leer. Y no lo abandoné ya que me prometí a mí misma terminar todos los libros que empiezo a leer aunque sean malos, para así dar mi opinión y tener conocimiento de lo que me gusta y lo que no.Una historia sosa y predecible que en ningún momento te engancha y lo que conlleva a que leer [...]

    20. Author: Nora RobertsFirst published: 1989Length: 246 pagesSetting: Contemporary, Orcas.Sex: That 80s hand wave that pretends to be explicit but pulls the curtain at the final moment. Fairly frequent.Hero: Mysterious. (view spoiler)[FBI undercover agent (hide spoiler)]Heroine: Owner of B&B.The type of book you are supposed to go into blind. Is he BadGuy or Good? Assassin or investigator?I wasn’t enamoured of an ending where he has to crawl because she is stupid and untrusting. For someone s [...]

    21. Este livro foi-me oferecido em Dezembro do ano passado e, como estava parado na estante desde essa altura, acabei por pegar nele durante este mês para que finalmente pudesse ser lido.Este é um livro repleto de paixão, mistério, desejo, intriga, suspense, tensão, acção e amor desde o primeiro instante, com um enredo ritmado e cativante e com personagens reais, fortes e interessantes. Tal como é habitual, a escrita da autora apresenta-se leve e descontraída e propicia uma leitura descompl [...]

    22. Kehidupan tidak selalu mudah bagi Charity, tetapi dia adalah orang yang selalu berpikiran positif terhadap segala sesuatu, termasuk kepada Roman saat Roman membantu dia menggantikan ban dan menyatakan membutuhkan pekerjaan. Seketika, Roman mendapat pekerjaan di penginapan yg Charity kelola.Jatuh cinta dan membuat Charity jatuh cinta padanya bukanlah sesuatu yg ROman rencanakan, menikahpun bukanlah hal yang tercantum dalam penugasannya kali ini. Tetapi Roman berusaha bersikap jujur kepada Charity [...]

    23. 3.5 starsI really enjoyed this story until we got to the end, where Roman's big secret was revealed and Charity flew off the handle and stormed off without hearing his side of the story. This happens in too many stories and it's wearing me down. Especially in this circumstance, where the secret couldn't be revealed due to law enforcement involvement. That's a perfectly reasonable explanation and had I been in Charity's position, I probably wouldn't be all that upset. I certainly wouldn't torture [...]
