Secret Star
3.5 Stars

Lieutenant Seth Buchanan comes from a long line of cops and always plays it by the book. That is until he meets Grace Fontaine, a woman who is supposed to be dead. In Grace’s presence, Seth forgets all about remaining cold and aloof and before he knows it Grace is under his skin and tying him up in knots. When the murky figure searching for the final Star of Mithra reveals his twisted agenda, Seth and Grace will have to face their differences or die trying…

The final installment in the Stars of Mithra trilogy and all of the threads are wrapped up satisfactorily.

Grace and Seth’s opposites attract romance is good although there are one or two moments where their lack of communication grates on the nerves. Moreover, Grace is not as likable a heroine as Bailey and she lacks the spark that makes M. J. so special. She initially comes across as spoiled and selfish and Roberts seems to spend a great deal of page time attempting to correct this image and redeem her character. Seth is far too judgmental and tends to jump to unnecessary conclusions which creates unnecessary angst.

The murky villain from the previous books is finally revealed and he is, unfortunately, not as threatening as the build up promised. The final showdown is, however, quite satisfying although the inclusion of the reincarnation theme is jarring as paranormal elements were not included in the previous stories.

Overall, Secret Star is an enjoyable conclusion to the trilogy. ( )

Book description
MURDERED MILLIONAIRESS.
He was standing face-to-face with a dead woman... and she was holding a gun. Lieutenant Seth Buchanan's homicide investigation --- and his heart --- were thrown into turmoil when Grace Fontaine turned up very much alive --- and in possession of one of the huge blue diamonds known as the Stars of Mithra. The cool, controlled cop never let his feelings get in the way of his job, and everything he knew about the notorious heiress told him she was poison. But in her irresistible presence, it was hard to remember there was any mystery more important to solve than that of Grace herself.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0373484909, Mass Market Paperback)

Lieutenant Seth Buchanan is investigating a murder scene when the supposed victim walks through the front door. Grace Fontaine is even more beautiful in person than she is in the portrait over her mantel, and Seth knows that she means trouble. But he's a cautious man, long accustomed to guarding his heart, and he's determined to continue the practice. Grace, however, has other ideas; Seth is the man she's been waiting for through all the long, lonely years she has spent as an unbelievably rich, impossibly beautiful child and woman. Thrown together by Seth's determination to solve the murder, the theft of three incredible diamonds, and the imminent threat to Grace's safety, the two struggle with the passion and the bond that pulls them together. Nora Roberts is a master at spinning a tale, and she doesn't miss a beat in this novel of love, murder, mystery, and obsession.
