From the PublisherPraise for Laura Moore’s Remember Me
“Brava! What a delicious read. Moore’s heartfelt tale will resound with fans of Diana Palmer and Judith McNaught.”—Romantic Times
Yet when Owen, who himself is wary of any romantic involvement, offers her a job she badly needs, Jordan has no choice but to accept, even though it means she’ll be working alongside him every day. And that closeness could intensify the connection between them—a desire as unnerving as it is powerful.

When I was given the opportunity to read the second book in Laura Moore's Rosewood series, Believe In Me, I jumped at the opportunity. The first book, Remember Me, took me on a heartfelt journey I couldn't forget, propelling the book to the top of my favorite novels list. In this installment, we are given Jordan Radcliffe's story. In Remember Me, we learned Jordan's husband had strayed from their marriage. In this book we learn that not only did he cheat, but he also continued to do so after they sought help to save their relationship.
Much like Remember Me, Believe In Me has a beginning that leaves little doubt that you are about to take an emotional rollercoaster ride. Jordan is devastated when she learns her husband has been unfaithful. Even more harmful is an event that is witnessed by her entire family. Left with no other choice, she takes her children to Rosewood to heal following her divorce. It's not an easy transition. She has to stand on her own two feet while caring for her children, come to terms with her ex-husband's new marriage to the woman he had an affair with, and face the trust issues she has developed due to her experience.
Help arrives in the form of the handsome architect Owen Gage, a gorgeous and successful man who is interviewing for a designing job that Jordan wants. When Owen offers Jordan a job, she has no choice but to accept. Unfortunately, her attraction to the man is undeniable. When he proposes a no strings attached affair, she's not sure if the offer is one she should refuse. After all, she's been alone for a while now. Embracing her sexual identity just might a step in the right direction. After Owen and Jordan fall into bed together, they never expect that their mutual passions could lead to something they never expected. Can a scorned woman find faith in a man who tempts her to give love another chance? Can a lifelong bachelor become not only a husband but a father figure to Jordan's children? The answers aren't entirely what you might expect, which makes Believe In Me as memorable a book as its predecessor.
Laura Moore has a writing style that I love. Her characters are memorable, flawed, and easy to relate to. I enjoyed revisiting the hero, heroine, and family from the previous novel. Rosewood has become more than an imaginary farm; it has become a very real place in my mind. The backdrop is as enthralling as the stories, making returning all the sweeter. I highly recommend this series to diehard romance fans, as there is plenty of emotion, tension, and obstacles for the hero and heroine to overcome in order to truly embrace each other.
A definite must read, don't miss Believe In Me.

Jordan Radcliffe is pregnant with her third child when she finds out her husband Richard is cheating. Stunned by the betrayal, nonetheless Jordan agrees to go to a marriage counselor. After several months of visits with counselor Abby Walsh, a doubting Jordan begins to believe they may be able to save their marriage; until she hears a tape of Richard having sex with the same woman she caught him with in the first place.
Knowing her marriage is over, Jordan returns to her family home Rosewood, a horse farm with a mansion in Virginia. There she meets architect Owen Gage, who designed Nonie Harrison's home. Jordan hopes to be hired to design the interior. Nonie makes it look like Owen stole her concept and supporting ideas, which he then gave to his firm's interior designer to use. Once Jordan and Owen realize Nonie double crossed both of them, they begin dating. While Jordan feels she is falling in love, Owen remains frivolous never serious about anything involving their relationship. When he completes his latest design, Own plans to leave.
Mindful of Barbara Delinsky, but with her own stamp, readers will believe that Laura Moore writes wonderful contemporary romances with a strong family background (see Remember Me for Jordan's sister Margot's tale). Jordan is a resolute individual who knows her three kids come first while Owen has commitment issues. Although the older two kids adapt too easily to the change in their environment, the support cast enhances the second Rosewood romance as love comes once again to the horse farm, but may not be enough to keep Owen with Jordan since he has commitment issues.

I loved the complete Rosewood Trilogy. I think it would make a great night time mini series or even take it further for a great new weekly show. It would be a great deal better to watch then some of this stuff that is on television these days. I will be reading more of Laura Moore books and look forward to it. Very well done with family and true love.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The second book in the Rosewood trilogy is just as wonderful as book one was. This is Jordan's story. The story of a woman who is learning to pick up the pieces after her husbands betrayal and her divorce. I loved her and her leading man, Owen.
Not only is it a story of Jordan, her children, her family healing. But, it's a story of Owen's finding love and that he wants to be part of Jordan's family.
I also loved the development of Rosewood and all it's people. Of course, at the core is the Sisters.
A warm wonderful book.

Ms. Moore has a way about her writing that literally leaves you grasping for more. Her amazing structure and insight--the depth--she draws you inside the character's minds really has you genuinely caring for each.
This grip she manages to ensnare on you will leave you up for hours at a time, on fire to turn the page, in order to find out what happens next.
While some parts of the book slow the novel down, and really don't push forward the plot, the last half of the book makes it all worth while. You'll fall in love with both characters just as they do with each other.
Four out of five stars for a job well done.

What a jerk face of a husband for cheating on her while she is pregnant. Anyways, after reading the first book, I had to continue on. I had to find out what happened to Jordan. Another great piece by Laura.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was my first Laura Moore book read and I have to say I am hooked! Laura had me laughing out loud at times and even in tears at a sad part or two. Amazed at times when I was surprised how she weaved the story together. Oh and the romace was told in good taste, not at all trashy, really enjoyed the feeling of love and need from the characters. Hope you enjoy bonding with Jordan, Margot, Jade, Travis, and Jordan's children Max, Kate and the lovely Olivia that often times made me smile. Oh and I can't forget the sexy Owen Gage!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
