Loved this book from the very first O'Shea sisters are quite a bunch. They are funny and sweet and full of life. Catherine and Quincey made a perfect couple and I loved watching it all unfold.

Oregon's Up Daisies

I really enjoyed reading the second part of this story. It just made the series even fuller and definitely more interesting. Can't wait to read the third installment. Really fun.
First off I always wonder why Carolyn Brown's books have so few reviews. She's a great author! My guess is that the book covers leave a lot to be desired; you really can't tell what the book is going to be about by looking at them. Such a shame! I don't know if she's classified as "Inspirational", I don't think so but I might be wrong. And people, that is really the best compliment. Cos when I look at Inspirational books I'm looking for a good clean read,I'm not looking to be preached at. ...more

Catherine and her sisters run a hotel and restaurant. Something had happened to her youngest sister's husband, but no one knows what.

Quincy had been hired by the husband's family to find out what happened to him. But there are real soaks between him and Catherine.

Suspense and romance, plus a bit of a lesson in history around WWI. Just the type of book I LOVE to read. Going to check out the next one in the series now!

Great Story

I love this series. I read this book second and Thin Air first. It's ok, as they didn't confuse me. The O'Shea sisters are great women..a bit remarkable, too! Catherine, the oldest of the three, has had a lot thrown at her in the last year. But, a beau comes along by the name of Baxter, and another named Quincy. What will happen, and who will she chose?
I really enjoyed this small town historical romance. I felt it needed an epilogue, but it is part of a series.

Once again, Caroyln Brown has written another cute romance. I really liked this one, but it's not my favorite book that she has written.

I enjoyed it a clean semi historical romance. I love the bond between the Oshea sisters. I love most of all the saying of pushin up daisies comes up a lot through out the book.

Hi! I'm twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous. The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles. Can't trust those cameras or mirrors either. Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars! Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who've made me laugh and given me more story ideas than I could ever write. My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my ...more
