Both books by Nora Roberts - well done and in her old style, where she shows off that writing prowess we know is in there and sometimes forget when reading some of her more recent works... But I digress, these books are set in the south and exude humid warmth and dark pasts. Character development is good (not Outlander good... whew I still am sweating that one!) plot on Carolina Moon finishes nicely if suspense til the very end can be said as a nice finish. Though, Midnight Bayou leaves a bit to be desired at the end... Overall, good weekenders or one day on vacation books.
