  • These books are great The sisters are wonderful and their stories are really enjoyable The stories had interesting characters In the first book, Courting Catherine, I liked CC so much She was headstrong and so intent on saving the family home When Trent wanted to purchase the hotel, it took everything CC could think of to work it around to her family s advantage While Amanda watched the renovations of the house she found herself interested in Sloan The second book was A Man For Amanda and I love [...]


  • Courting Catherine 2 StarsThis was pretty disappointing for me I ve read NR s MacGregor series and enjoyed most of them, so I knew I could be satisfied with her shorter works Unfortunately this one felt rough very rough The portrayal of the hero and heroine and their descent into love felt very clumsy, abrupt, and unbelievable Catherine was 23 and felt even younger I was pretty irritated by her continuous rants to Trent about men like him I get that she needed a handy target for her anger, and I [...]


  • Nora Roberts is most famous for her easy reads Good books with good characters, especially the kids she writes kids well The books tend to be repetitious, especially this one It is almost identical to her later In The Garden series She has set kinds of female characters, male characters and plots And mixes and matches from book to book changing locales and plots You d think this would be tedious, but she makes it work The characters and the settings are so good you want to read the same plot aga [...]


  • To be truthful I almost gave this book a rating of 2 stars, which I never dreamed I would consider doing for a Nora Roberts novel This is not a bad story What it is is 3 short stories all based around the same family and the same mystery Instead of intertwining the three stories she just has them occur chronologically, with 2 to follow in the next installment of The Calhouns The mystery continues through both books, I assume, since it was not concluded in this one So I m reading the next one to [...]



  • It was like reading three books at once Each character was given her own time Just sad that in 601 pages they couldn t find the emeralds The history that was discovered about the family was interesting A good read Now need to find the next.


  • I hadn t read these books by Nora Roberts before, but love her writing I found this one in Target and decided to go ahead and read it Like her Bride Quartet, these books are pure romance and I loved them I am anxious to read the next book about the fourth sister The books do follow a certain formula but it is so well written that you really don t mind The common theme is love of course, but each couple is different in how they face falling in love and how they deal with the aftermath I would hig [...]


  • Love Nora Roberts, so this was really disappointing I actually enjoyed the C.Cd especially the Lilah stories, but the Amanda one was terrible I like myself a man s man, and you can see that s what Roberts is trying to do with the hero in that one, but the guy is just plain an ass A man behaving that way in real life would be guilty of assault, battery, and sex crimes In a world where both men and women need to learn and feel confident that No means No, this was a major blunder C mon, Norayou mus [...]


  • Very sweet romance involving three of the four Calhoun sisters as they face the loss of their ancestral home in Maine, struggle with jewel thieves, and attempt to discover the truth behind the death of their great grandmother.Mild and romantic with a range of characters the mystical Aunt Coco, the automotively inclined Catherine, crisp, businesslike Amanda, Lilah the mystical naturalist vying with a hotel magnate, an architect, and a history professor cum writer to solve the mystery of lost fami [...]


  • As with most Nora Roberts books, each story is basically like reading the same story over again which is not necessarily a bad thing It s an easy read with a final moment of oh no , but in the end you feel good each time I appreciated the mystery involving the emeralds and felt that Ms Roberts did a fine job in developing that subplot I plan to read Suzanna and Megan s stories to round out the series.


  • This book includes the stories Courting Catherine, A Man for Amanda, and For the Love of Lilah Courting Catherine 3 starsI think this was a nice start to this series of stories involving the Calhouns All of the women have different personalities that make them unique and Aunt Coco is a delight CC and Trenton make an odd mix, the rich hotel executive and the grease monkey but it does prove to be opposites attract and in this case work out well I didn t mind the instant heat and attraction between [...]


  • I really enjoy Nora Roberts writing style She adds lovely character descriptions, and she paints her scenery like poetry mixed with a Monet painting I would read any of her books just to learn my own writing skills through her Her books are like a master class to me.



  • Overall, it was a very interesting book I was disappointed that the necklace wasn t found by the end of the book and that Max and Amanda weren t married.


  • This book trilogy was not one of Roberts best It seemed rushed at some parts and the character building lacked I hope that the next book gives answers and questions so my opinions change.


  • Loved the three books ,the heroines and their partners Little Alex and Jenny s squabbles, aunt Coco and great aunt Cordelia all touch the reader.Glimpses of Bianca s life in 1912 13 ,her falling in love with Christian and sudden death add to the mystery of the missing emerald necklace.


  • The Calhouns are a family of 4 sisters who differ from each other in many ways but when it come s down to love, they are all on the same page Trying to figure out how to save their home find the missing emeralds from their great ancestors is proving hard work for these women Catherine CC Calhoun, a stubborn, headstrong grease monkey who is also the baby of the family can t help but despise the fancy shoes man who walks into her shop when his car needs a fix Finding out that this man is Trent St [...]


  • First, for CC, I loved how she was a grease monkey, and Trent loved, regardless of his past women It was interesting since there was no love scene like in every other Nora Roberts book because of different cicumstances, so that was refreshing I love how Trent s arrival sort of gets the ball rolling for the rest of the romances and the emerald mystery, and especially how he saved their home and them I thought Bianca s mystery and diary that we get along the way was great, although at times it see [...]


  • courting catherineCatherine C.C Calhoun was not going to let anyone take her home,the Towers, away from her, especially not handsome hotel magnate Trenton Trent st James Trent was invited by CC s aunt Coco to come and take a look at the Towers and also to give his proposition to her 4 nieces C.C and Trent meet at her garage, his car had broken down and she owned the garage where it was being fixed They liked eachother, but as soon as C.C realizes who Trent is she becomes cold to him and takes hi [...]


  • 2.5 stars is a accurate rating, and I have to admit that this was given grudgingly I wanted to re read this novel because I remember reading these once some years ago I have the second anthology completing the series and I have read it a few times, but I couldn t remember these three stories except for the vaguest details These three novels were exactly as my two star rating designates it just okay I am stretching for 2.5 stars because they do improve with each subsequent installment Courting C [...]


  • It s always a bit weird going back and re reading books you haven t read in over a decade This series by N.R is no different I thought I was going to have to lower the ranking, but it looks like when I added it years ago to GR, I ranked it pretty fairly I d give this a 2.75 or 3 I still like it I just remember LOVING it, and I don t love it now I think I just can t wrap my head around the insta love that was and is to a lesser extent part of N.R s trilogies At least now from what I recall of her [...]

  • This was a re read for me I enjoyed it the second time around as much as I did the first time Yes, this is early Nora Roberts But it is still wonderful This book contains the first 3 out of 5 stories about the Calhoun sisters, their aunt and their haunted family home, The Towers Woven into the 3 seperate stories and into the following 2 stories in the next book is the continuing mystery of their great grandmother s tragic death and her missing emeralds That alone will keep you intrigued and turn [...]


  • I had my flirtations with romance novels I know puny but its true I ve bought a few of them, and liked them as much as one can like clich d books I ve thought about trying to write one, I mean how hard could it be, but never really put in an effort.I got the complete Calhoun collection by Nora Roberts for a few bucks at GoodWill I never really got into them, but I can t lie and say they were totally awful either I brought the collection with me camping, and it was light enough to read around the [...]


  • I actually give this book a 3.5 star.Nora Robert is a very interesting writer and has several different styles but usually I don t read her because a lot of what she writes is typical romance but sometimes you ve just got to read it One of my neighbors recommended this and so I gave it a try I am drawn to books about houses, old houses that need some tender loving care and this book had one of those so I m drawn in There are also 4 adult sisters raised by their aunt after their parents died d th [...]


  • Nora Roberts was and is one of my favorite authors, I love her books so utterly captivatingd I absolutely adore her series booksbody writes them better except Lisa kleypas In this book series you will meet 4 sisters trying their level best to save their ancient historic home, there is their aunt coco, whose busy playing matchmakinge whole mystery surrounding the house and the emeralds add a whole new dimension to the plot Catherine is fiery, hardworking and adorableanda is a complete ocd, but re [...]


  • I loved the 4 sisters and aunt characters I ordered the next right after I finished.Courting Catherine Catherine is a feisty mechanic and she tries to intimidate Trenton into leaving because she does not want the family to sell their family home However, Catherine s fury sparks Trenton s interest Interspersed with Bianca s journal entries from the early 1900s Man for Amanda Sloan is not used to being taken down by a woman, but he has no problem returning the favor.For the Love of Lilah Lilah res [...]

  • I loved these stories I liked the imagery around the old house that was falling apart, but the sister s just could not walk away from their heritage.I liked that CC was a down and dirty grease monkey mechanic, to the dreamer in Lilah.I found the stories well written and enjoyed the pairing of the partnerships that they ended up with.If there was a down side, I would have to say it was in the description of the romance All the men seemed to be the mouth crushing kissers.I still found the stories [...]


  • To be honest, I am not a huge romance fan I bought this book at a yard sale because it did sound interesting I liked that there were 3 stories and how they intertwined from each perspective I also liked that this author is very descriptive I felt as though I was standing on the cliff with the wind whipping my hair What I didn t like was that it was the typical romance formula Boy meets girl Girl hates boy They get together Fight Go apart And then get together happily ever after I would say it as [...]
