I love every book I have ever read by Catherine Anderson. She is one of my favorite authors. She never disappoints - her love stories will keep you on the edge of your seat til the very end.

Everyone should check out her books!

Esta foi uma leitura excepcional! Se antes tinha adorado o livro “O Sol da Minha Vida”, agora fiquei completamente rendida.
Catherine Anderson é uma autora que se mostra muito cuidadosa acerca dos temas que escreve. Em cada livro nota-se uma atenção particular ao meio envolvente e aos problemas que englobam a trama fazendo-me lembrar o cuidado com que uma simples teia de aranha é construída, sendo cada fio ligado com extremo cuidado sem haver um único descuido. Claro que para mim este livro teve

There really is only one word, Wholesome ... Vitamin and mineral fortified with just the right amount of sweetness to make it palatable. If you are already aquatinted with Ms. Anderson’s brand of storytelling, than Sun Kissed will be a treasure trove overflowing with good old fashioned family values. Nevertheless, this was my first C. Anderson novel, and I must admit, the heavy, unremitting dose of Anderson’s brand of “morality” was slightly overwhelming.

Okay ... Before you start branding me an

This is my third Catherine Anderson book, and I've decided that she is an okay writer, but just okay. I think she has a talent for creating interesting and believable characters, as well as interesting storylines, but I'm often knocked out of the world she creates by the sudden unrealistic dialogue or stilted turn of phrase.

This particular book had an interesting story, but a very predictable ending to the conflict. I saw it coming a mile away. And the romance side of the book simply had no spar

Recommended to Miss Kim by: continuation of a series
Even though I really like this series, I was disappointed in Tucker's story. There was very little romance in this one, as it was all about the horses. Horse this, and horse that. Horses horses horses. I did like the mystery, but there was just not enough 'fun stuff' in the book. In Isaiah's book, we get to meet Tucker the first time. He is portrayed as a playboy, with a taste for the finer things in life. He's never planning to settle down. Now, in his book, he's totally opposite. Suddenly he d ...more

Another sucess by Catherine Anderson. She just can't help it. I love her books, they're my special treasures.
As Debbie Macomber says in her review: "Her stories make you believe in the power of love". I wouldn't have said it better than this because this is exactly how CA makes me feel.
I've loved Tucker and Samantha and their romance. It was truly inspiring.

I'll keep Harrigan's books close at hand so if I miss this series I can always pick one book up and enter my dreamland.
:) oh tão lindo!

não sei porquê tenho um "fraquinho" por historias de cowboys, ranchos e afins!
este numa vertente um pouco mais "conservadora" que não era de todo previsivel, tem uma trama, meio suspense, romântica e religiosa, sem dar muito foco nesta ultima vertente.
Apesar de tudo, é uma historia que nos agarra e nos seduz no seu conjunto.
Com um razoavel desenvolvimentos dos personagens, com diálogos interessantes que promovem de uma forma positiva a trama.
O tema em si é dificil, já que aborda

Mais outra história amorosa e comovente de Catherine Anderson. Como sempre gostei ha história criada pela autora e dos persoangens, é impossível não nos afeiçoarmos aos mesmos e torcermos pelo seu final feliz.
Para mim, esta autora tem o talento único de criar histórias que aquecem o nosso coração e nos deixam mais felizes com a vida.
Tenho pena que as histórias sobre os irmãos Coulter tenham acabado, mas tenho a certea que a dos Harrigan também serão boas.

I just finished the audiobook...not my favorite in the Coulter series, but it was a nice closer. I'm assuming Anderson moves on to the Harrigan family next, and I'm cool with that. I just wanna know where this town is because they grown some fine hunk of man meat there. I mean seriously.....can this many awesome men exist in one town? I'd like a one way ticket, please!

Another good read by Catherine Anderson. I'm loving this series, though in being true to myself I am reading them out of order. I honestly didn't think I'd like Tucker, because I thought he was a butthole in book #6. Took me a while to get that out of my head, but I did end up really enjoying this book.

Basically the same story line as the other Anderson books. But I love reading about hte Kendrick/Coulter family so I will definately keep reading her books. They are always a fast read for me so I get through the series quickly. Nice books to read on a lazy afternoon

This is fun Chick Lit and I liked it OK. Not all of Catherine Anderson's books are worth reading, but many are well-written and wholesome romances. If there is a believable plot (as this one has), they are perfect gym or beach books.
In general her characters are handicapped in some way; in this one there isn't anyone disabled, but one of the main characters is a survivor of Domestic Violence, and I liked the treatment of that issue.
I did not know that Morphine makes horses hyper! Actually shoc
I am a huge fan of Catherine Anderson and normally rate her books 5 stars with a rare 4 stars. However, this one just didn't grab me the way the others have. I am having trouble putting my finger on exactly what made me rate it a thee and after reflecting, I believe it was the lack of connection I felt to the hero and heroine. I can't say I disliked either of them, and I think I may be spoiled by the heart tugging characters Anderson has written before, but I found myself apathetic about their p ...more

This is the first of Catherine's books I've felt warranted the lowest possible rating. Not because it was vile and horrendous, but because there wasn't even enough good to balance out the bad.

I actually had fairly high hopes for this one. Samantha seemed like she'd be a fun heroine, I'd already seen glimpses of her in her brother Clint's story and she seemed cute. I was looking forward to seeing Tucker as a romantic lead instead of just Isaiah's naysaying brother. And the plot seemed like harmle

This is the story about Tucker Coulter and his fight to save the horses belonging to Samantha Harrigan. The horses had been poisoned but no one knew how it had happened. Tucker used everything he had been taught as a Vet to save these horses but while he was working on them, he lost his heart to Samantha. It is a story about two people who fought hard to protect these valuable horses and to find out who had committed the crimes. It was their hard working efforts that brought them together.

Horse breeder Samantha Harrigan ends up in jail after protecting a horse from an abusive drunk. Local veterinarian Tucker Coulter comes to her defense and ends up in jail right beside her. They meet again a few days later when Sam's horses are falling ill and Tucker discovers they have been poisoned. Sam is the prime suspect, and Tuckers offers to help prove her innocence.

Good contemporary romance. Another good addition to Anderson's series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Well written 'romance' with a mystery that to me was far too predictable. The characters were super human and although they were meant to be flawed came across as perfect due to the genre. Read this one because a friend thought I'd like it - I did as long as I kept the classic romance out of the picture. Boy meets girl - she likes him but he doesn't like her or vice versa but circumstances will throw them together and they'll both see this was meant to be - the only one for me - magical and perf ...more

My first Catherine Anderson book was My Sunshine - and little did I know when I picked Sun Kissed up from the flea market that this book was about Tucker Coulter (Issiah's twin brother from My Sunshine)

I really liked this book. It keeps with the animal and nature themes. Anderson writes in such a way I can see myself in the main character - Samantha Harrington.

Well, this is the end of the formal Coulter books in the Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan saga. I put off reading this book for as long as possible because of that, but I finally buckled and read it. Not one of my favorite Catherine Anderson books, pretty much just average, but I've definitely read worse. I really do wish the rest of the Coulter could have made more of an appearance. Except for Isaiah, the Coulter family really didn't appear too much throughout the novel, which was pretty disappointing ...more
