Okay, I'll admit being a Catherine Coulter fan from way back, and I truly did enjoy reuniting with Sherbrooke characters from previous books, which I do remember amazingly well considering how many books I have read since that I don't remember at all.
Frankly, I found myself alternately laughing and crying my way through this book. I cried because I thought Meggie's crush on her "almost-cousin" went on far too long and caused much pain to the husband who loved her and deserved better. I laughed when the cook sang while serving nutty buns, the butler defined everyone's worth based on their suitability to walk on his back, and the new bride drowned her sorrows with the innkeeper's wife after a less than satisfactory wedding night. The two dowager countesses, although mean-spirited at times, made their contributions to the hilarity as well.
Did I ever want to know so much about cat racing? Probably not, but the images of cats leaping to the finish line with a crowd of Sherbrookes and Malcombes and their households cheering them on provoked many a chuckle even after the book was finished.
Meggie is a worthy Sherbrooke heroine, feisty and loyal and determined to the end. What man wouldn't fall in love with her? How Thomas turns out to be such a deserving Sherbrooke consort, considering his upbringing, remains a mystery.
The murder mystery plot at the end seemed a bit incongruous in comparison with the lighthearted crazy tone of the novel. I think the book would have turned out much better had the murderer remained a comical character bent on making mischief between the two dowager countesses. And perhaps that would have left room for a bit more romance between Meggie and Thomas.

This book just rubs me the wrong way. I love Catherine Coulter & was excited to pick this one up. However it was not to be.
I can't abide the heroine...Who names a romance heroine "Meggie"? C'mon! It's hard to find her sexy or beguiling with a childhood nickname attached. And yes...the cat racing got on my nerves too.
There are better Catherine Coulter's out there...no, there are some wonderful Catherine Coulter books out there, however Pendragon isn't one of them.

I had high hopes for this book. I have read many hsitorical romances and I have read Ms. Coulters FBI series. I assumed that I would love this book and would be running out to buy all her historical romances. Well you know what happens when you ASSUME.
This book was awful. The charaters were not inviting, the story was too drawn out and the cat racing. What was up with that!?!? I should have stopped right there. I think the characters had potential but the dialog was so convoluted you simply didn't care. As for the mystery, it started more than half way into the book. By the time I got to it I just wanted the pain to stop so I read the last two chapters and put the book away.
I will not be reading any more of her historical romances but I will keep up with the FBI series which also has its faults but it is much more enjoyable.

I don't know what is happening with authors these days, but with each book they seem to get worse and Catherine Coulter is following trend. Ms. Coulter's early works such as "The Legacy Trilogy", "The Magic Trilogy" were really good, but "Pengragon" was very bad. I didn't realy care about the either of the main characters and the only reason that read the book was the fact that I spent over eight dollars for it. Maybe Ms. Coulter and others should take a break and take the time to write a book that is worth its money.

Pendragon is the fifth book in the Sherbrooke Brides series, a sequel to The Scottish Bride. I'm afraid I just skimmed through it, too much catracing and other stuff and very little writing actually on the hero and heroine. Not much on the romance. I didn't learn much about the hero, Thomas, and Meggie grown up is such an unsympathetic character I was sorry for Thomas he ended up with her. Also, I hated Calypso Magic, because I don't want a romance involving a slave plantation (I don't want to read about the exploitation of black slaves) and Jeremy is back and he still owns that slave plantation. I read too much romance and Coulter used to be a pleasant enough read but I think I'm too picky now, I don't like light historicals anymore and I don't like that wedding night thing, why do the women always act so surprised and hate it so much, doesn't seem realistic to me. If you like light historicals you might like this book but I would suggest start at the beginning of the series.

I really would give this book more like 3 3/4 stars, but since I can't I'll round up.
What I liked about this book was the two main characters, Meggie and Thomas. Though they got together awfully fast (she knew almost nothing about him but marries him on gut instinct) they seemed a sweet couple from the start. She's completely naive and guiless; he's handsome, charming and sweet.
Initially the mystery sounds promising, but it's resolution is a bit on the silly side. Still, I enjoyed the gothic atmosphere of Pendragon, wondering who had it in for Meggie when attempts are made on her life. Though you wonder how Thomas turned out so normal living in a house full of such strange characters - particularly his mother!
The whole cat racing thing was a bit much for me. I just skimmed those parts. Coulter always has some light device like animals or children in her stories.
But I enjoyed it enough to read it twice so far, so that's saying something.
