At 1:47 am this morning, I read the last sentence of Shadows in Death by J.D. Robb. For those of you who don’t know, Robb is Nora Roberts, the NYT best-selling romance author.
Since they’re the same person, obviously the writing style is very similar. She has a way of drawing in the reader with the very first sentence and holding their attention till the very last one.
At no point in the story did I feel it was dragging on or slow paced or even info-dumpy.
I did get confused a time or two at who was talking, as Robb doesn’t tend to use a lot of dialogue tags.
One of these days, I’ll learn to write descriptions and scenes like she does.
Hopefully sooner rather than later.
