A Man For Amanda by Nora Roberts

There is something easy to Nora Roberts books. The second book of the series Calhoun Women is A Man For Amanda. The second book was a fantastic continuation of the series.

Amanda Calhoun is the practical sister who is the assistant manager at the hotel in town. Sloan is the new architect who is going to help transform the Towers into a functioning hotel. The two automatically butt heads right from the beginning but they will find each other through their own stubbornness and a sneaky new character who wants more than Amanda’s companionship.

The second book of Calhoun Women was a blast to read. There was romance, wit, and humor that drifted through the characters.

I liked that the plot was only a few weeks apart from the first book. It kept the reader in the story and the lives of the sisters. I loved that it was Amanda’s time to find love according to her Aunt and it was in the form of Sloan.

The two characters were a blast to read. There stubborn streak kept the book filled with wit.

I liked that the plot had a little suspense to it. A sneaky character was trying to find the emeralds that had been leaked to the papers. He is not someone you think would do that but very quickly you know his desire. I actually liked that you knew who the bad guy was in this book but you didn’t know his strategy which left you to enjoy the book and to read on to find out his plan.

A Man For Amanda is a delight to read for romance readers. You will fall in love with the Calhoun women.

Courting Catherine by Nora Roberts

The first book of the series Calhoun Women is Courting Catherine by Nora Roberts. This is a fantastic book to read. Romance book lovers will devour the story of Trent and Catherine “C.C.” Calhoun.

Trent St. James III is in the hotel business and is looking towards the Towers for his next investment. Getting  there he is all about business but things will be leading a new direction when he continually butts heads with Catherine or known as C.C. who is the fiery mechanic and one of the owners of Towers.

This is a series that made me smile as the contrast between Trent and C.C. was very clear but it was perfect. Everything made sense but the characters were not easily gotten together.

Through the interaction of the book I love all the sisters and their aunt. Each character has a unique detail that makes them different and Roberts does a great job distinguishing those unique attributes.

As an avid romance book reader I love reading about the endless love and the passion that is igniting to a love affair which is why I loved reading this book. The two characters were on their way to a great love affair but were always stopped. Throughout the book there was no sex involved. With romance it comes natural but it was fun to read that two attracted people were going towards that way didn’t. There was romance and passion which filled the pages and gave you an insight with the characters without sex to sizzle the pages.

In the plot Roberts gives a delightful and witty performance that leaves you smiling while reading the book.

I found the first book to be a page turning and a great plot to start the series with. You got an inside look at the feisty sisters who are all different but share a home and their lives to the Towers.
