Who are some authors that you respect for their work and media presence? Earlier this year when my friends and I were discussing Nora Roberts, for clarification one of them said, “THE Nora Roberts?” And we were like “yeah, THE Nora Roberts”. When you’re a NYT best seller with 215 novels out, you basically get legend status. haha. . Having said that, Nora Roberts has always been out of my regular reading genres. Even though I’ve always known of her, I’ve never read her books. (Same with Stephen King. I’m too terrified to read him, but I talk about him like we know each other.) From that same conversation with friends earlier this year, I had told myself that I would read one of her books this year to support her for being such a class act online. I received this book as a surprise mailing last week and figured this was my chance. Thank you to @stmartinspress for gifting this book to me and giving me a chance to support Nora Roberts, even though she doesn’t really need it. haha. I feel like it was kind of fate too, since this one is set in North Carolina (my family lives there and I lived there for awhile) and I love reading books based on places I can really envision. . Synopsis: Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers―and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake―see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back...Years later, Zane returns to his hometown determined to reconnect with the place and people that mean so much to him, despite the painful memories. As he resumes life in the colorful town, he meets a gifted landscape artist named Darby, who is on the run from ghosts of her own.  Together they will have to teach each other what it means to face the past, and stand up for the ones they love . #undercurrents #noraroberts #romance #northcarolina #targetstyle #flatlay
