    1. just so you know, i really tried. anyone who knows me knows my - let's call it lack of enthusiasm - towards the romance genre. but i went into this with an open mind, thinking, "i didn't want to read the children's books when i took the children's class either, and look at me now!" but so i went in thinking it would make me a better person or a better, more rounded book-knower i tried.but shit - this is a pretty bad one. and it is more than just a matter of preference/taste for the genre, it is [...]

    2. So, this book marks a big moment for meYes, that's right, I have now finished ONE HUNDRED books this year. *cue applause*A couple of months ago, Flannery and I discovered that we shared a mutual love for Nora Roberts. We then decided that we would devote an entire week to Nothing But Nora, revisiting all of our favourite Nora novels. High Noon is the first in my NBN book list. High Noon is not my absolute favourite Nora novel, but it is amongst the ones I like best. Actually, the reason I starte [...]

    3. 5 Stars! Exciting, gripping and brilliantly narrated by Susan Erikson! Another fantastic read/ listen from the talented Nora Roberts. The plot had me on the edge of my seat nearly the entire time. Phoebe McNamara is a hostage negotiator for the Savannah police department. At the scene of an attempted suicide she meets Duncan Swift, former employer of the distraught man who is a jump away from committing suicide. Duncan is drawn to this strong confident woman, and she is taken by his charming per [...]

    4. Romantic suspense!! So good!!You might think it's a bit like an In Death book, but you'd be a bit wrong, even though she is a cop and he is handsome and rich. Duncan is not Roarke, but he is still a good character and not quite as alpha.Love me some Nora!!😁💕

    5. Audiobook narrator was terrible. Story, characters, and chemistry were weakRRATOR SUSAN ERICKSEN:Imagine someone with a hair trigger temper, quick to yell and always ANGRY. That is how the narrator interpreted most characters. I don’t like to be around angry people, and that was how I felt during most of the book. The second most common interpretation was SMUG. Others: sarcastic, slick, arrogant. There was no warmth, vulnerability, sensitivity. My favorite narrator Frank Muller reads with a se [...]

    6. This is not my favorite Nora, but still good. I tend to rate her against herself anyways. I think the tough woman cop thing is a little overplayed. I really enjoy when she writes a heroine who is a bit softer, and Phoebe is definitely not that. I thought that Duncan, Phoebe's love interest, was sort of blah. I just never fell in love with him. As always, there is a secondary love story going on between Ava and Phoebe's stand in Daddy and boss. But I was very frustrated to realize at the end of t [...]

    7. What the?If this is the "great" Nora Roberts, I'm awfully disappointed. This story is a compendium of cliches, one after another after another after another

    8. This Nora Roberts standalone novel starts off with a bang. Phoebe McNamara is the top hostage negotiator for the Savannah Police Department and she is called in to talk down a man threatening suicide. She heads out on the ledge with him and is able to get him to put down the gun and come inside. This is just part of the job for Phoebe as she has worked suicides, kidnappings, hostage situations and robberies gone wrong with very few fatalities. The man who is talking to "suicide Joe" when she arr [...]

    9. I'm a total sucker for Nora Roberts, and as long as she's not recycling characters too obviously I have few complaints. Say what you will about Roberts and her incredibly prolific career, she's an effective writer. I laughed, I cried, I was concerned about whether some characters would make it out alive. So the hero is just a bit too good to be true--an emotionaly open, handsome, loyal lottery winner, fer chrissakes--the heroine is a hostage negotiator who's truly ballbusting. The opening, which [...]

    10. I've must've seen the movie version of this before or at least parts of it. There were certain scenes where I knew exactly how it was going to play out, I could predict it down to the letter. Then again, the entire middle section of the book was unknown to me so I figure I must've caught it while channel surfing and not knowing it was a Nora Roberts adaptation.Things I liked:1) the romance.I wasn't head-over-heels with it, but Roberts does what she does best and I did like it. Or certain aspects [...]

    11. Nora Roberts never fails to deliver in her standalone novels. Action, suspense, intrigue, chemistry, romance - High Noon has it all. And it'll be some time before I get that tune out of my head! This one starts off with a bang - straight into action as Phoebe is called to the scene of a man threatening suicide. As a hostage negotiator with the Savannah police department, Phoeboe goes out on the ledge to talk him down. It's just another day in her life as a police hostage negotiator, single mothe [...]

    12. Oh, God, I loved this book.Review to come after I make sweet love to it down by the fire.

    13. 4.25 stars.I really enjoyed this for some reason, I keep seeing shades of Eve and Roarke in Phoebe and Duncan. Not sure if it's because Susan Ericksen narrated this and I could hear Eve's voice or because Phoebe is a cop and Duncan is rich. Phoebe is not a kick-ass cop like Eve as she talks her criminals into surrender instead. However, the way she thinks and the way she protects those she loves are all very Eve-like.Duncan is definitely not as dark as Roarke. I love that he enjoys playing with [...]

    14. 2.5*Nora Roberts fez parte da minha adolescência, acho que é melhor não estragar essa época e não remexer mais neste ciclo ;)Opinião completa aqui: baudatanocasspo/ref

    15. Pretty good by not her best work…I liked the characters, especially Ma Bee and Duncan. Ma Bee understands Duncan like no other - the only mother figure he’d ever known. Duncan is a take charge kind of man, one who does what he wants when he wants, and pursues Phoebe like a pitbull - jaw locked and refusing to let go. Phoebe needed him to balance her, and I’m glad they found each other. And Carly, Phoebe’s 7-year-old daughter - very much like my own 7-year-old daughter. The only differenc [...]

    16. Ser negociadora de reféns não é uma profissão fácil, ainda para mais quando se é mãe solteira e a nossa mãe vive fechada em casa. Porém as coisas podem sempre piorar. E é isso que Phoebe MacNamara está prestes a descobrir.Depois de ter sido atacada na própria esquadra por um polícia que acabou de suspender, Phoebe começa a receber animais mortos à porta de casa. Quem anda a fazer isso? E porquê?Mas os animais são apenas o principioEle esperou muito tempo por vingança. Ele plane [...]

    17. Sola Ante El Peligro me ha gustado mucho (parece que últimamente sólo leo libros de Nora Roberts, pero es que me encantan!), aunque tengo que decir que la relación entre Phoebe y Duncan es super apresurada. Es decir, ellos se conocen cuando un exempleado de Duncan está intentando suicidarse y Phoebe va allí para evitarlo. Y ese día, sin saber absolutamente nada de ella salvo su nombre, Duncan ya está pensando en salir con ella. A ver, me he enamorado de los personajes, de cada uno de ello [...]

    18. I have to start reading the back of Nora's books before I autobuy. This one’s about Phoebe MacNamara, a hostage negotiator, with a young daughter, an agoraphobic mother and someone stalking her. Enter Duncan Swift, a hottie bar owner who just happens to be the boss of the first person she has to talk off the roof. I truly enjoyed the story but I thought it got bogged down in negotiations which tended to be repetitive and rather tedious. I liked all the characters except the asshats but that's [...]

    19. I was not too pleased with this Nora Roberts book. Maybe I've just read too many of her books and they are becoming too alike. I feel that she could have told this story effectively in 200 less pages then it actually was. It seemed to drag on and I wasn't relating to the characters at all they seemed so one-dimensional. It was a disappointment.

    20. One of my favorite things about Nora Roberts books is not only the relationship she builds between the lead F-M characters, but also the relationships between the secondary characters; and I love when she had kids in her books, they bring a whole new level of fun and charm to the storyline.

    21. This one’s about a hostage negotiator named Phoebe MacNamara who lives with her agoraphobic mother being stalked by a weirdo cop – it’s great suspense with a perfect multi-millionaire as the love interest thrown in for good measure. Rate 3.5

    22. Real Rating: 4.5 / 5Não fossem algumas questões levantas, com a sua habitual mestria pela autora, mas no fim não concluidas ou exploradas devidamente e este podia ser facilmente um livro de 5 estrelas. Ainda assim não deixa de ser um dos meus preferidos e sobre o qual adorei ler.Começando então pelos pontos negativos, a autora pressupõe um casal secundário Dave e Ava e no fim não lhes dá qualquer desfecho concreto, é como se o assunto tivesse sido esquecido. Existe ainda uma questão [...]

    23. Acabei. Este Refém do Amor é um bom livro. Tem qualidade suficiente para fazer parte do meu top 10 da autora. O enredo está todo muito bem estruturado. Digamos que me fez relembrar o que eu gostei tanto à primeira vista na escrita da Nora Roberts.Este é um dos livros dela com mais suspense. Era completamente impossível de descobrir o assassino e nem por isso deixei de criar imensas teorias para a identidade que eu achava mais provável.As cenas mais dramáticas e de acção estão todas mu [...]

    24. Okuduğuma değdi doğrusu. Heyecanlıydı, romantikti, tatlı sahneleri de vardı. Karakterlerin her birini sevdim açıkçası. Phoebe rehin alma vakalarında görev alıyor ve rehineciyle görüşmeyi yaparak rehineleri kurtarmaya çalışıyor. Tabi bu görevde geçmişinin ve babası kadar yakın Dave karakterinin etkisi var. Bir gün intihar etmek isteyen bir çocuğun yanına gönderiliyor ve orada Duncan ile tanışıyor. İşte klasik etkilenme felan oraları geçiyorum. Bunlar bir yand [...]

    25. HIGH NOON (Police Proc/Romance-Lt. Phoebe MacNamara-Savannah, GA-Cont) – VGRoberts, Nora – StandalonePutnam, 2007, US Hardcover – ISBN: 9780399154348First Sentence: Jumping to your death was a crappy way to spend St. Patrick’s Day.*** Lt. Phoebe MacNamara is single mother who lives with daughter, Carly, her mother, suffering from agoraphobia, and Ava, a family friend. As a hostage negotiator, she talks down a man threatening to commit suicide and meets the man’s attractive former emplo [...]

    26. I picked this up in an airport bookshop last weekend, when my plane got stuck in Atlanta. High Noon wasn't a bad read and certainly kept the boredom at bay as I waited for my flight to depart, but it wasn't up to Roberts' usual standard. The plot is laid out above and I will say that the characters were interesting by the end of the novel. Unfortunately, it seemed like two much was going on with the thriller plot to allow Roberts to flesh out the characters early enough for me to really connect. [...]

    27. I couldn't finish. Just too many highly unusual factors mixed together in one story. First, what community the size of Savannah needs a hostage negotiator every week or more? I know sometimes it's to prevent suicide but stillThe heroine was almost killed along with her mother and brother when she was young when they were all held hostage by the mom's boyfriend. Okay - that's tragic. Now her mom won't leave the house even years later. Tragic again.The hero won $132 million in a lottery.The heroin [...]

    28. Ne yazayım ???BayıldımNora Roberts'in eski kitaplarinin tadı bambaşka Heyecanlı ve aksiyonlu bir polisiye en romantik film ve kitaplara taş çıkaracak bir aşk vardı Eve Dallas'in bu kitaplarda temeli atıldı gına inanıyorum .Zira kadın dedektifimiz Phobe karakteri Eve Dallas'ı çok animsatiyorduDuncan ahRoarke özelliklerinde süper bir aşık Yazarın eskilerden okumadigim Anahtar Üçlemesi kaldı sanırımHala okumayan varsa tavsiye ederim

    29. I picked this up for 10 cents from a library sale, since I like NR's In Death series. But this felt like a less cool, less focused version of Eve and Roarke. The first 200 pages were pretty good, but honestly this thing was just too long and drawn out for what it was. I lost interest, starting skimming, and eventually just gave up. Meh.
