Nora Roberts wrote a series of books about the Calhoun sisters, the first book Courting Catherine was my favorite and I also liked the follow up story A Man for Amanda. This is good and this time it's love for Catherine's (C.C.'s) sister Amanda and it continues the back story of the search for an old heirloom and the stories about an ill-fated relative and a house that may be haunted but even though A Man for Amanda is good and I kept it for my keeper shelf along with Courting Catherine it just isn't as good and I rate the first book 4 stars and this one 3 stars but it's really more 3 1/2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Man for Amanda May 2 2000
By caley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Amanda Calhoun is balancing family duties with planning her sister C.C.'s wedding and acting as assistant manager at a local hotel. She doesn't count on penciling easygoing Sloan, the cowboy from Oklahoma whose also head architect as her house, into her schedule. His laidback ways drive her crazy, but even she can't factor out the attraction between them. Their story of falling in love is another irresistable don't miss! A Man for Amanda is part of Nora Robert's Calhoun Women series, about four sisters trying to save their castle-like mansion in Maine by having part of it renovated into a hotel. Don't forget a tea leaves reading aunt and the search for Grandmother Bianca's legendary emerald necklace amongst the true love and family!

2.0 out of 5 stars One obnoxious character here: Sloan O'Riley June 27 2007
By Roger Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In general I've enjoyed Nora Roberts mystery/romance books, especially the series works, and I've enjoyed this series, although it seems a bit less interesting than some of her others. All the talk about a missing emerald necklace worth $250,000 (not such a vast fortune by present standards) becomes tiresome. What makes this and other Roberts series interesting is her excellent use of setting and her talent for creating atmosphere. Bar Harbor, Maine, and a large granite castle overlooking the rocky Atlantic coast are fine for the purpose.

That said, I found Sloan O'Riley completely obnoxious. He is only a trifle shy of being a rapist on several occasions, and yet he is put forward as a hero to be desired. Boys are taught today, or should be taught, that "no" means exactly that. No does not mean, "force me, you handsome devil." Unfortunately movies and fiction are still too often teaching the opposite. The alleged hero roughly grabs the woman who is protesting, struggling against his grasp, and saying "no, no, no," and as he forces his affections upon her, she slowly relaxes, her arms go around his neck and all's right with the world. It was all just an act to bring out the beast in him. And that's not a good message to be sending. It's like the drunk used for comic effect. The sot may serve to advance a plot, but drunks (and men who force themselves on women) are dangerous felons all too often.

Are there still people who think drunks are funny and that too forceful men are heroes? Let's hope not.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was very good. Jan. 3 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
After listening to the audio cassette recording of Nora Robert's Courting Catherine and loving it I listened to this audio cassette recording of A Man For Amanda and I really liked it and I liked the characters a guy named Sloan O'Riley and a lady named Amanda Calhoun and I loved the continuing story of everyone trying to find the lost necklace in the old mansion. This audio cassette is a keeper and I'm hoping to find the rest of the books and audio cassette recordings for this series about the remaining Calhoun sisters

4.0 out of 5 stars Nora Robert's series books are the best! March 27 2005
By Nancy R. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
A Man for Amanda continues the romantic tale of the four Calhoun sisters from Bar Harbor, Maine. This book picks up a few months after the first title, Courting Catherine, wherein the sisters seek to find a way to preserve the home that has been in their family for over 80 years. Now the on eve of Catherine's marriage to Trent, we are told the story of a second sister, Amanda.

Amanda Calhoun works for a local hotel on Bar Harbor as the assistant manager. Beautiful and bright, she looks forward to the time when her ancestral home, The Towers will become both home and a boutique hotel which she will manage. A rather grounded young woman she never expected to fall for the Harvard educated architect, Sloan O'Reilly, from Oklahoma who has been hired to begin the renovations on the sister's home.

This book also continues the sister's search concerning the whereabouts of family heirlooms, a matched set of emerald earrings and necklace owned by the Calhoun women's great-grandmother, Bianca. And also answers the question as to whey there such noticeable hostility from Sloan towards another one of the sisters, Susannah when he's just met the family.

In her usual romance style Ms. Roberts presents her readers with a good romance book which I read in a couple of hours. Now I look forward to reading the third book in this series, For the Love of Lilah.
