I have read about 40 books by her.  I like her contemporary fiction/mysteries, not her paranormal books.

Re: Nora Roberts

[ Edited ]

I have read a ton of her  books.  I enjoy most of them but books that have really stood out to me are listed below. 



  • Chronicles of the One
  • "In Death Series".

Stand Alone:

  • Shelter In place
  • Under Currents (Tough Subject Matter)

I was reading under currents but I had to place to the side. I had some other library books become available for pickup that had two week turn around time frames. I fully plan on returning to the book.

Nora Roberts (Elonore Robertson) went to my high school about four years after I graduated.  I've never read any of her books but my Mother's caregiver was a big fan and said that a character in one of her earlier books was named after my brother, Greg M.

@pprmntstx , here are some of the series that I like:

The Chesapeake Bay series 

Three Sister Island Trilogy 

Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy 

Irish Born series

In The Garden series

Dare to Dream series

All of the MacGregors (there's a lot of these books)

True Betrayals stand alone


All of the J. D. Robb books. These should read in order, mainly to see the progression of the characters relationships, the main story changes in each book.
