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!

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

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

Recommends it for: people who like horses
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

3 stars.

The heroine Sam is just too old-fashioned to be real... she feels like someone from the 1950s instead of 2000s. Also, the culprit was too easily spotted.

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

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.

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.

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

Catherine Anderson is an excellent writer and very engaging. She's a vibrant and talented writer in the genre that is my favorite - romance!

However, this book wasn't one of my favorites. I found the Heroine, Samantha, astonishingly naïve and excruciatingly frustrating. Being a horse owner myself, I wanted to throw her behind bars and lock away the key for her gross negligence which led to the severe illnesses and deaths of several "prized" animals. She is supposed to be a religious person, yet h

Tucker redeems himself. He was a jerk in the previous book in the series and I needed him to turn into the hero. He does that, and more. He's lovable and irresistible.

Some sections of the book stretch common sense, but basically I bought the story.

My only disappointment was how removed the couple was from Tucker's family. Although they were close to town they didn't mix much. When they did it was like a nice reunion. Isaiah's wife, one of the best characters in this series, could have played a

She's releases from jail when the charges are dropped. Her champion quarter horses are being poisoned. Tucker is a vet and he has managed to save two of her horses, but two others have died. And now the law is looking at her as maybe the one doing the poisoning for the insurance money. The ending is just as i ...more
I enjoyed the who done it part of the storyline but the romance part was flat. It happened in there thoughts with little or no sizzle between the couple. Even with Sammy's faith there could still shown a Little more spark. This is my least favorite of all this series.

What is not to love about a Catherine Anderson book? You laugh, you cry, you hang on the seat of the chair. Real characters, real life believable problems and a great ending. I loved this book. Highly recommend it.

It was a great addition to the series, I liked how well it fit in with the story line. I must say it was a little predictable, but the all the emotion tied into this novel made it amazing.

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

Que posso dizer? Esta foi uma história que me arrebatou logo desde o início e que me relembrou quão bom é estar a ler sem parar, convulsivamente, uma história linda, doce, ternurenta, uma história que se adora a cada página que se lê.

For me this is the first book from this author that i read (and yes i know this is part of a series and that is not the first one) but i decided to read it the same way and i'm really glad that i did.
I like her writing style and the characters created, i was introduced to the Coulter and Harrigan families and now i'm so curious to know more about all of them and to read the previous books.

The plot line is full of action and suspense although it is a little predictable, this book also deals wit
