The Barnes & Noble Review
Robards Makes Midnight Magic Karen Robards has been writing her best novels in recent years, and she's begun to take on the mantle of queen of romantic suspense with such page-turners as Heartbreaker and Hunter's Moon. With The Midnight Hour, she scores a personal best. Superbly plotted, wonderfully written, with characters that come alive upon your first encounter with them, this is Robards's best novel thus far. Grace Hart is a single mother and a juvenile- and family-court judge in Bexley, Ohio - and her daughter, Jessica, has gotten out of control. When Jessica goes into what might be diabetic shock, hunky Tony Marino thinks Grace should practice what she preaches as a family-court judge. But there's more to what's going on than either Grace or Tony realize. While the love story that gently interweaves through the pages of The Midnight Hour grows more and more powerful, it's definitely the bit of mystery and the thriller aspect of this novel that take over. What working mother hasn't worried about the well-being of her child? Robards takes this to the nth degree with suspense and action that rival that in some of the best popular fiction of our day. The love interest here, macho cop Tony Marino, has a very human side, too: Although he's overly judgmental of Grace Hart's ability to watch out for her own child, it's mainly because his own daughter died. That loss has colored his world; he has both built armor around himself and become empathetic to the plights of others. Grace begins to find evidence of a stalker - and someone has comeintoher home and gone through her things. Soon the threat of violence escalates, and Grace realizes that she and her daughter are no longer safe in their own house. Tony moves in to help protect them, and the novel steams up with his presence. But who is after Grace? Who would want to harm young Jessica? Don't miss this terrific new novel from one of the best romantic-suspense writers around. -Jessi Rose Lucas
