a toss up
The Sherbrooke Twins by Catherine Coulter Reviewer: Pamela Ackerson, author of Home of the Braves trilogy I never thought I would see the day when I read a book by Catherine Coulter and was disappointed. The first 20 or so pages was great and then the book draaaaaaagggged. I almost didn't bother to finish reading it. In my head I kept thinking, this is Catherine Coulter it has to get better than this. So I read on and fought my way through the center of the book and zing! About three-quarters of the way through the book, There she was! I knew Ms. Coulter would show her head and writing expertise! The last quarter of the book, woohoo. That's what I was expecting. A great read. Was it worth reading through the slow part? Yeup.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

So so effort
I normally adore anything Catherine Coulter writes, but I was rather disappointed with this one (and also Pendragon, the other most recent in the Brides series). The 'murder' plot seemed really contrived and rather random, but I did enjoy the interactions between the main couple. Plus, I always get a little irritated with a book that really obviously sets itself up for a sequel, but that could just be me. Despite all this, the book was pretty good, though I'm definately hoping Coulter gets back to the standards of the first Bride book (which was my favorite...that and the 3rd). I'd recommend it only after you've read at least the first three books in the series, otherwise you'll be really confused about all the characters they introduce and references to past events.Was this review helpful?
