Divine Evil - Nora Roberts
I didn't get this one finished during the 24 hour Read-A-Thon but I did finish it up this morning and really enjoyed it. I do not usually read romancey sort of books but I picked it up at a friends house many years ago (it was his moms), read half of it and then never finished it. So when I saw it at the library I thought I should try and finish it.
Amazon.com describes the book "Haunted by half-forgotten nightmares since her childhood, Clare Kimball, a shining star in the New York art world, returns to her hometown and finds new love with the town's sheriff, Cameron Rafferty, once the high school rebel. Clare Kimbal is troubled by depression and the return of childhood nightmares. So she takes a break from New York City and heads for her sleepy hometown in Maryland, despite its association with her beloved father's violent but apparently accidental death. Cameron Rafferty, formerly the town hellion, is now the sheriff and faced with a puzzle: the century-old grave of an infant has been dug up. In fact, the grave was robbed by Satan worshipers; Clare's dreams date from the night in her childhood when she saw them performing a coven ceremony--and they know she saw them. Cam's problems are compounded when the mutilated corpse of his hated stepfather is discovered in a field after the two have a public fistfight."
The book is predictable but I think I needed that in this latest book. It was interesting and was a real page-turner. I read quite late into the night because I couldn't put it down. I love when I find books like this. I also liked the supernatural part to the book - I guess I am like my mom in loving books like this.
I think I have to read something a little more intellectual for my next book - but I will be secretly waiting for the net book like this!!
