After reading some of the reviews here in Amazon about this book, I was a bit hesistant in starting it. However, I felt obligated as it is part of the series. Afterall, I started the book, For the Roses, which is the first novel of the Clayborne series & which was also one of my favorite J.G. books. I read it with open mind. I actually didn't even expect much out of this book because of the reviews. I guess you can say I didn't want to be disappointed. In the end, the book wasn't too bad. Perhaps because I was prepared for it? Though I must admit, I had to skip some parts to get to the point. I had to "read-through" some pages as I find some scenes dragging. Mind you, the action twist was interesting. The suspense and the excitement of finding out who the true witness is and the three beautiful female leads, which was all uniquely described. I just wished this book was more of Cole and the Clayborne family since this is what the series started out to be. I also prefer ROMANTIC & LOVE scenes. I find this book more of an action scenes - robbery, murder, crime scenes. It's just not for me. But... like i said, it wasn't too bad. It's still entertaining. I finished the book so that is an indication that it wasn't dreadfully boring. If you started "For the Roses", then you must go through with the whole program. No regrets!

This book was one of the most engrossing books I have read in a long time. It really kept me guessing, and that's pretty tough for me to do (when there's a mystery involved, I can usually guess the solution before its revelation). I had not read the previous books in this series (though I am doing so now, thanks to this book), but it was easy to follow and very enjoyable despite that.
What's most intriguing about this book is that there are three female leads! You might think that would be confusing, but I did not find it to be. The book begins with a bank robbery and brutal massacre, and our two main heroes are trying to determine which of the three female leads is the star witness (and thus in terrible danger). I can honestly say I did NOT guess correctly, and I definitely was not expecting the plot twists and turns. I literally could not stand to be away from this book for three days, and it got so bad that I was reading it at stop lights in my car! (Shame on me!)
This was my first Julie Garwood book, and it was worth reading. I enjoyed all of the characters, and found that she did a good job of balancing the three different story lines, and bringing them together. My only regret is that, because there were three different "plots", she was not able to develop all the characters as much as I would have liked. For that reason, I probably would give it 4 1/2 instead of five stars. However, that did not detract from my enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend this.
To help you determine if YOU might like this book as much as I did, my tastes are such that my favorite authors are Jude Devereaux and Catherine Coulter.

I looked forward to reading this book for some time. It is the final installment in the "For the Roses" series. I was disappointed that it did not keep with the style of the preceding books in this series. The explicitly graphic violence at the beginning of the book is disturbing and nothing like the stories preceding. This overshadows the plot. There are some stunning plot twists and I was unable to put the book down. However, I was disappointed that Ms. Garwood changed her style just at the end of a delightful series.
To date Julie Garwood's style has been romantic, humorous and upbeat. None of her stories have had the same plot. Like many of her contemporaries, she is attempting a more gritty, hardcore style. While she does this in a riveting manner and she has a right to grow as a writer, it is a letdown to the faithful readers who made her a bestselling author. Perhaps Ms. Garwood and her fellow romance-turned-action writers should use a different pen name for different sytles.
This book is a "must read" for the Garwood fan. It does bring closure to the Clayborne saga. But it is not a comfortable closure.

By A Customer on Nov. 16 1997
Format: Hardcover
The bank in Rockford Falls, Montana is held up by a glib talking killer and his cohorts, who methodically execute any possible witnesses. However, due to clumsiness on the part of a female client, unknown to the outlaws, one person survives the massacre. Knowing he needs some insider's thinking, the U.S. Marshal Daniel Ryan enlists an unconscious Cole Clayborne to help him catch the bloody cutthroats. Cole has been known to stretch the law and although he and his new partner do not seem to get on well together, they travel to the site of the latest robbery-killings. Back-up also arrives in town.
In Rockford Falls, a search of the records leads to the conclusion that a female witnessed the dastardly crime. However, there are three possible candidates. Each one eventually bewitches a different marshal. Still the outlaws have learned that someone can identify them. They too are not sure which female is the witness so they plan to eliminate all three unless their law enforcement lovers can intercede and stop the gang from a final cowardly deed.
The five novels that make up the "Rose" series are considered some of the best books written in the nineties. Julie Garwood's latest offspring from that tremendous collection, COME THE SPRING, is as good, if not better, than the previous novels. The "good guys" are all charming even as they suffer from flaws and the villains, especially the leader, are cold bloodedly efficient and exciting. However, the story line with its tremendous prose and building suspense, turns this book into the rare confines beyond that of a keeper to that of a long term literary classic. Harriet Klausner
