Jewels of the Sun - Nora Roberts

Jude's doing a "girls' night" with two women she's only known for a few weeks, and currently they're all a bit drunk and stripping down to their underwear so that everyone can try on Jude's clothes. I'm trying to imagine this ever happening in real life. Ha! Definitely not in my real life.


I have a few quibbles here and there, and the entire setup is utter fantasy (how many people have the money required to quit their job out of the blue, go to another country, and spend 6 months figuring out what they want to do with their lives?), but overall it was a good decision to start this right after finishing No Longer Human. This is one of the few "Nora Roberts trilogies tied together by something supernatural" that I like. Most of them make me wish that Roberts had just ditched the supernatural aspects.
