To the reader that was not able to finish- you missed out. There is love, humor, and suspence. You find yourself spending the night in a cave during a rainstorm, traveling across the ocean to meet a family that's about to meet their baby girl that they don't know exist, in a court room during a murder trail with the hanging judge presiding. There's not a dull moment. There were only two things that I would have liked to known the answer about- why did the person take the baby in the first place and what was Harrison's and Mr. Elliott's reaction when they found out Mary Rose was expecting a baby? I know they would have been joyful but I would like to have read about it.
I have read more than 10 of J.G.'s books and this is definitely one of my favorite. I am now in the third novel of the Clayborne Brides, which is part of this series. So far, I am not disappointed... here is how the series follows: For the Roses -----then--------> Clayborne Brides: 1st novel: One Pink Rose 2nd novel: One While Rose 3rd novel: One Red Rose ------last----------> Come the Spring
Hope that helps, Enjoy!
Too many novels have trite dialogue or exaggerated sex scenes and Garwood manages to steer clear of both. "For the Roses" entertained me so much that I had to put it down more than once so that I could stop laughing at the antics of the characters. I especially loved her heroine, Mary Rose Clayborne, because the young woman was intelligent, sassy and sweet. She also has a strong streak of common sense not often found in the gloriously beautiful and reckless heroines that populate lesser author's works. Mary Rose is definitely NOT monotonous or vain.
I like the structure of the novel, with its chapters interspersed with letters written by the Clayborne family to their matriarch and Mary Rose's namesake, Mama Rose. The characters come alive through the letters and we gain an insight into their personalities that we would not normally have.
Bravo, Ms. Garwood! This is the most excellently written novel of yours I have ever read.
