Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Former rodeo star Zeke Coulter falls head-over-spurs in love with a talented single mom in Anderson's latest Coulter Family romance (following Blue Skies). The story starts out when Zeke discovers that his house has been vandalized. He chases Chad, the 11-year-old culprit, to a farmhouse where he spies the comely backside of his new neighbor, Natalie Patterson. Natalie, however, is Chad's mother, and the two get off on the wrong foot when Zeke insists that Chad work off the damage over the summer. An impoverished singer and songwriter, Natalie has more on her plate than just a difficult preteen; she also has a four-year-old daughter and a supper club that's on the verge of bankruptcy. Nevertheless, she and her kids pitch in to help Zeke repair his damaged house. Inevitably, love blossoms between the two, but their happily-ever-after seems less than assured when Natalie is accused of murdering her philandering ex-husband, a villain pulled straight from central casting. The bedroom scenes between the two strong-willed, slightly mistrusting protagonists are sweetly titillating, and Anderson's portrayal of Natalie's uncannily smart daughter is winning. Though conventional in plot and sketchy in setting, this is still a rewarding read.

From Booklist

Zeke Coulter thought he liked living alone until he meets his sexy next-door neighbor, singer Natalie Patterson. He went over to talk to her about her young son, Chad, who had vandalized Zeke's vegetable garden and damaged his new home. Hoping to teach the boy to take responsibility for his actions, Zeke insists that Chad work off the damages, but along with her daughter, Rosie, Natalie convinces Zeke to let her help her son so that he can attend summer camp. Recently divorced and struggling to support her two children, Natalie knows Chad is going through a rough time, but it turns out that being with Zeke is exactly what Chad needs. The only problem is that Zeke now realizes just how lonely he is. Anderson, an author who excels at crafting emotionally powerful romances that celebrate the importance of family and love, gives readers another touching, sweetly passionate story of romance as she continues her exceptional contemporary series featuring the Coulters.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL June 7 2004
By Willow
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I haven't had a Catherine Anderson book that I didn't like, so I was anticipating a great read when I stopped and picked Bright Eyes up at the bookstore. I was not disappointed - in fact I was so entertained by the story line as well as the secondary characters that I found myself laughing out loud. The gander and Rose are pure fun.
Bright Eyes is fun - full of tender romance - heated passion - and lead characters who have depth and character. Catherine Anderson has written a beautiful story about love that comes when you least expect it and manages to overcome all obstacles. By the time I finished the book (all in one sitting, I might add) I was believing in the magic of the heart and that love can find us even when we aren't looking. Cannot wait for the next book to be released..........

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good... June 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There are good ways and not so good ways to meet your neighbors. Among the not so good is having to confront the mother of a young vandal about her son's misdeeds, only to have an argument and get chased off by an attack goose. Despite the inauspicious beginning, Zeke Coulter, a brother of other Anderson heroes, finds himself admiring Natalie Patterson. Not only is she beautiful, her own opinion notwithstanding, and hard headed as he himself is, but has an inner strength and the voice of an angel. Her children, even the vandal, also win Zeke's heart. His entry into their lives could not have come at a better time either. Natalie's ex has finally p.o'd someone one too many times, and winds up dead, with the best suspect being Natalie. Fortunately, Zeke has strong shoulders for her to lean on; and no one messes with the Coulter family and gets away with it.
**** Bright Eyes has a bit more tension than some of Ms Anderson's books, but is still heartwarming and real. The pages ripple with gentle humor and love. I hope the Coulter clan has a few more siblings to meet in future novels. ****

I love all of Catherine Anderson's books. Bright Eyes is no exception. Zeke and Natalie are a wonderful couple; and the secondary characters are so real and entertaining. Like all of Catherine's books, this story has it all. I really enjoyed this book. I found it endearing and very funny at times. I also enjoyed the mystery plot as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Author Is Great June 10 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just received my copy of Bright Eyes and I am now on the last page. I have never enjoyed a book as much as I did this one and I could not put it down. This author just keeps getting better with every book she writes. Just when you think she has wrote the best book, she comes out with another one even better than the previous book. Thank you Catherine...

4.0 out of 5 stars Tumbles into Sugar-Coated Silliness. June 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Normally, Catherine Anderson can fill 400 pages with riveting ease. BRIGHT EYES launches easily, prompting the reader to settle back, fully anticipating another Anderson gem. Unfortunately, half way into her story Anderson flounders. This gifted writer usually pens heart wrenching, poignant stories -- here she chose " cutesy " -- coupled with a predictable crisis.
The rugged Coulter family continues. BRIGHT EYES is Zeke's story. Zeke Coulter is the normal Anderson hunka-hunka burning love male -- gorgeous, sensitive men who ooze toughness. Zeke is a busy bachelor who is content with his life and his new acreage.
Fortuitously, Zeke's new property borders Natalie Patterson's land. Mrs. Patterson is a sexy mom with two children and a worthless ex-husband -- a jerk who continues to make life miserable for Natalie and his children. Natalie Patterson and the kids find Zeke Coulter equal to a knight in shining armor. A spectacular man who bolsters their confidence, builds their self-worth, and brings new hope to their bleak lives.
As usual, Catherine Anderson draws wonderful characters. Natalie falls from the pages as a normal woman, a woman who tugs at her summer shorts, frets over 10 pounds, while determined to lose 20. However, the true character prize is little Rosie Patterson, Natalie's young daughter. This four year old is adorably precocious and has enough charm to leap from Anderson's pages straight to the reader's heart. Oh how, I cherished the pages this child inhabited.
Yet, somewhere around page 200, the story became ordinary. A predictable crime soared to the foreground changing Zeke and Natalie into grisly sugar-coated lovers -- I love you -- I love you -- say you love me -- say it again --.
The beginning saved the rating, the ending - oh Ms. Anderson pull out that heart-rending pen! Save the syrupy-sweet for another author -- nobody does poignancy better than you.
