Book Review: Courting Catherine (The Calhoun’s #1) by Nora Roberts


It’s the stuff that love – and legends – are made of.

Mechanic Catherine “C.C.” Calhoun and hotel magnate Trenton St. James mix like axle grease and mineral water – until they kiss.

Efficient Amanda Calhoun finds easygoing Sloan O’Riley insufferable – and irresistible. And they both must race to solve the generations old mystery surrounding a hidden emerald necklace.

My Thoughts

C.C. Calhoun and her sisters, along with her aunt, are stripped to the bone with their finances. The Towers is their family home, generations growing within the walls, near the sea. The views spectacular and history close to her heart, Catherine struggles with the reality of selling her home. Trenton, a hotel owner, visits The Towers to observe the property and decide if a purchase is in his business’ best interest. Thoughtful, he realizes Aunt Coco, has more in mind for his visit. The prospect of marriage with one of the Calhoun women. A ridiculous thought, he struggles to keep his feeling in check for Catherine. Attraction reels, but his disbelief in marriage and loyalty hold him back. His parents, gone through several divorces and marriages, shown him the inability for commitment. Catherine falls in love with him, but averts her attention, knowing that she deserved love and marriage. The slow realization that he was indeed in love with her, he changes his plans and allows his heart to fall deeply in love. The first in the series of Calhoun sister’s, Robert’s words reveal the heart of a complex love story. As always, Robert’s shows the ability to take you on the journey of a lover, despair, and glee, the adventure becomes joy.
