Books by Catherine Anderson

B
Summer Breeze

I read Catherine Anderson's Coming Up Roses back in college and really enjoyed it, but since then I became rather turned off by the extreme victimhood of many of her heroines. Therefore, it was with some trepidation that I picked up Summer Breeze. As many would expect, the heroine is a tortured one, ...

Blue Skies

If you typically enjoy romance novels featuring perfect people, Catherine Anderson's upcoming Blue Skies is not for you. Carly Adams lived her whole life with a rare eye disease that left her blind until a recent operation gave her sight. She stands on threshold of a new life and, after having ...

Only by Your Touch

Catherine Anderson has a very easy-to-read style that pulls a reader in with its simplicity and flow. Unfortunately, the plot is also simplistic, many characters are clichéd or straight out of central casting, and I'm afraid I was just too cynical to enjoy much of the story. After a horrible ac ...

Always In My Heart

Always in My Heart is a well written, affecting story about a marriage gone wrong after the death of a child. Even though I did enjoy it, unfortunately, this story of love redeemed also had a number of things that set off my hmmmmm radar. The divorce is final and then some. The dus ...

Sweet Nothings

I selected this book by Catherine Anderson for review, not because I'm a fan, but because I've never read her. Before I was halfway through Sweet Nothings, I was down at my local UBS picking up as many of her backlist as they had on their shelves. Other than a teensy little quibble at the end, this ...

Phantom Waltz

Phantom Waltz is my contender for the most romantic romance I've read this year. After flirting from behind the counter of her father's store, Bethany Coulter expects Ryan Kendrick to turn tail and flee the moment he realizes that she is in a wheelchair. Bethany, a former champion barrel racer, was ...

Seventh Heaven

Those readers who love romances with sweet, vulnerable heroines and sweet, handsome heroes will love Catherine Anderson's latest novel. While the ending is a real page-turner, the first half of the book drags so much you might not even get there. But hang in, because it's worth it. Marilee Ne ...

Baby Love

Baby Love is intense and I mean intense. I wavered between biting my nails and reaching for hankies until I reached the end when I closed the book and went to lie down for a rest. I did say this was an intense book! Two years ago - Rafe Kendrick had it all. He and his brother owned a large and pr ...

Baby Love

Catherine Anderson's Baby Love features some fabulous writing - the premise which begins the book is explosive and riveting. While there is much to recommend about Anderson's effort, it is also necessary to point out that the story devolves into a series of clichés that verge on the melodramatic. ...

Cherish

Cherish is beautifully written and has wonderfully drawn characters, but it was so grim and gritty that it reminded me why western romances usually fall into the category of books I normally read only if they're light and humorous. Race Spencer comes across a slaughter in an arroyo while he's out ...
