Predictable but Surprising!
4 stars By Margot, 08 Apr 2014
I was pleasantly surprised by the first book I've read by Amanda Cabot. It was soothingly predictable, but full of interesting and surprising twists and turns. Like a long journey - you know where you are going when you start out, and you look forward to getting there, but that doesn't stop you from very much enjoying the trip. As well as the romance, there was the mystery and suspense, and just a touch of humour. Sarah was a delightful heroine - wounded but strong, fearful but brave. Clay is a true Texan hero - very hurt by the past, having suffered so many losses, but always the generous gentleman. there is a strong emphasis on God's plan in their lives, and the need to trust Him with our lives and our futures. Most enjoyable!

Enjoyable
4 stars By Lynne Stringer, 10 Mar 2014
I really enjoyed Paper Roses. I found the plot moved along well and I liked the lead characters. There were enough clues to tell me who was responsible, which was disappointing, and I would have liked a bit more at the end, such as a scene between Clay, Jean-Michel and Michel Ladre. A bit more detail at about all the characters at the end would have been good. Apart from that, it was most enjoyable.

Ok
3 stars By Jessica R. Wakefield, 02 Nov 2013
I mostly enjoyed this book, found it fascinating about the history of the town, but found it a little too preachy for my liking. Overall a good read.

Mixed up.
2 stars By Colleen, 17 Oct 2012
The story had so many twists and turns in it to the point I wasn't sure if I  was reading a romance, thriller or horror.
