book club

Thanks, Heather and Katie!

This week I read the long Nora Roberts' novel, The Calhouns:Catherine, Amanda and Lilah

The Calhouns: Catherine, Amanda and Lilah: Courting Catherine\A Man for Amanda\For the Love of Lilah

Courting Catherine Catherine "C.C." Calhoun was not going to let anyone take away the Towers—especially not handsome hotel magnate Trenton St. James. As far as Trent was concerned, his dealings with C.C. were strictly business. But her mix of fire and fury unexpectedly led his mind in a completely different direction. A Man for Amanda A slow drawl was all Amanda Calhoun heard when she walked into the wall of denim and muscle that was Sloan O'Riley, the architect hired to renovate the Towers. Amanda found Sloan's easygoing manner infuriating. But his irresistible smile just might change her mind…. For the Love of Lilah Adrift in a storm, Professor Max Quartermain thought he must have hallucinated the beautiful mermaid who came to his rescue. But Lilah was no mystical creature—she was a woman of ï ¬ ‚ esh and blood, and undeniably attracted to the intense and mysterious stranger.

I am really falling hard for anything Nora Roberts;her writing is fun, sweet, delicate, romantic, swoon-worthy, heartfelt, honest and real. This book is a small collection of three stories that represent three of the Calhoun sisters. These three sisters fall hard for guys who are different and yet manly. I really like that Nora Roberts never goes too far with the intimate details, she provides the setting and hints but never makes it too raunchy. I thought it was a but redundant too when each girl's story would begin and there would be some recap (I just read about it all and it is still one book so I didn't feel like there was any need to have to recap what just happened in the last 100+ pages...) The mystery wasn't really solved in this novel so now I really have to go check out the next Calhoun novel for the fourth sister's love interest and the mystery solution. I give this book a B.

Have a great Friday!!
