Format: Hardcover
It was a very good book. I liked how right to the end you didn't quite know if the killer was going to get to the last person to be killed. It made you read and had you read more just to see what was going to happen. I enjoyed the book very much

Wow. What a dud. Almost a hundred pages before any of the lyrical writing you expect in a Nora Roberts novel, and then it disappears again. A rude, crude anti-hero, and a woman foolish enough to think she loves him. Not a recipe for a happy marriage (or a good book).

Having just read two of her early novels, both of which I couldn't put down, this one was a cruel contrast and took a month to slog through. It left me wondering if the author was half sloshed when she wrote The Search or just in the middle of a messy divorce. Save your money--her early books are all good ones, and not a trace of the cynicism that plagues this one.

Although there were no real surprises in this by-the-numbers romantic suspense/thriller, it was a okay
story if not great. The overly sarcastic relationship between the two main characters didn't really appeal to me as I just didn't see any real emotional investment between them. I've read better, more exciting books by her but this was just okay.

A book I saved for my cottage vacation, "The Search" presented Fiona and Simon, my favourite Nora Roberts couple yet (but maybe Colt Nightshade is my favourite character - definitely favourite name). These characters, and Roberts' comfort food prose, made up for a serial killer that got more boring as the story continued and for scenes that seemed to have been written to show off Roberts' research (e.g. "Small Dog Syndrome").

The underlying story was good but, as a dog lover myself I thought there was way too much info about the dogs.

Loved it, couldnt put it down, the perfect balance of suspence/drama and love story, my favorite kind of read, Nora Roberts is my favorite writer, I love knowing that at the end of the book the characters are going to be happy but I love the drama and mystery end of it as well, Nora always manages to have just enough of both

Enjoyed this book and its two main characters, loved the storyline of suspense, romance and more suspense. Have listened to this twice and will put it away till next summer and listen to it again. I do love my audio books for the car and my kobo for the house.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Search as another great Nora Roberts novel. The characters were easy to relate to with their flaws and strengths. The story was compelling as it related to dog lovers found everywhere while invoking just the right amount of suspense.
