Spring Forward

Homespun, warm fluffiness is always a good option when January’s snows roll in.  Catherine Anderson’s latest, Spring Forward, in the ongoing story about life and love in Mystic Creek proves a delicious option when all you want is a cup of hot tea and a big fluffy sweater with your romance.  By ...

New Leaf

Catherine Anderson’s newest contemporary, New Leaf, is a story about second chances. While the premise was a good one, I just couldn't buy into her characters, so the whole thing felt flat to me. Barney Sterling is a sheriff’s deputy in the small town of Mystic Creek, Oreg ...

Walking on Air

I picked this book up and put it down at least five times before I read it straight through. The initial premise put me off and at the time I was fixated on working my way through the backlist of another author and really did not want to read anything else at the time. I thought that if I had to for ...

Perfect Timing

Catherine Anderson books are some of my favorite comfort reads. Her typical heroine displays tough survivalism in the face of hard times, and often finds help and a second chance with a strong country hero. Unfortunately, this book had none of the things I typically like about Anderson’s books, an ...

Early Dawn

Catherine Anderson’s latest is Early Dawn, a Western historical romance featuring Eden Paxton, a secondary character from Keegan’s Bride and Summer Breeze. Even though I haven’t read these - I have only read her contemporary romances - I wasn’t a bit lost. Like Anderson’s contemporary ...

Star Bright

I recently started reading Catherine Anderson’s latest contemporary romances, involving the Coulter and Harrigan clans. I think they are great comfort reads, and Star Bright seems like another to add to the list. In order to escape a truly horrific abusive marriage and certain ...

Morning Light

If you are a reader who likes her romances sweet, inspirational, and just a bit sappy, then Catherine Anderson is just the writer you have been looking for. She reminds me a bit of LaVyrle Spencer. Both authors are earnest and sincere – so much so that you almost hate to point out problems in th ...

Sun Kissed

I’ve read several of Catherine Anderson’s books and for the most part have enjoyed them. She is known for writing heartfelt books, and Sun Kissed is definitely heartfelt. Anderson has been criticized for sometimes making her heroine martyrs and victims, but Samantha Harrigan is made of sterner s ...
