The Charm School: I actually liked this one. A shipboard romance, go figure! It takes place in the early 1850's, partly in Boston, partly in Rio de Janeiro and on the journey there. Ryan Calhoun and Isadora Peabody are a nice lead couple and her transformation from ugly duckling to swan was about as organic as such a story line can get.

The Horsemaster's Daughter: Interesting premise, fairly boring execution. Hunter Calhoun, widowed father of two young children, and Eliza Flyte -- a woman raised

Although the hero and heroine argue about the same thing repeatedly, I felt that it was the hero's reluctance to open up his heart and truly listen that led to the repetition. The ending of the book was so lo

Loved these three books. I would also give this 4.5 stars if I could. I think my favorite of the three was Charm School. I really enjoyed the Ryan Calhoun and Isadora Peabody characters. The stories were pretty predictable but who cares, they were fun to read!!

I really enjoyed these 3 stories. The women are strong and independent Interesting storylines and ancillary characters are believable.

I could not get into the third book, about Jamie Calhoun. I liked the book about Ryan, but I loved the book about Hunter.
