    Never disappointed

    Every book I have read by Diana Palmer has been joy to read. I am so pleased this book did not stray away from drama, mystery, and romance. The characters are linked to my favorite town full of other characters, Jacobsville. I love visiting this fictional town and its strong women and loving men.

    Diana Palmer does it again; terrific book!!

    Hi Ladies! I think I have just about every single book that Ms. Palmer has written over the past 15 years. They are all my 'keepers'. I just finished reading this book and there is not enough that I can say that will make it any better than it is! So, ladies if you haven't read this book, go buy it NOW! If you have it and haven't started it yet, START IT! You will not be disappointed!! Tate has a few hangups, but Cecily keeps him popping. His mom and the Senator also play good parts; and people thought that just because there's snow on the roof that the fire went out; ha ha! I also found out that the other two characters Pierce Hutton & Brianne had their own story. My daughter bought that book 'Once in Paris' and I didn't even know it was a prequel. Okay Diana, is there going to be a 3rd book? It would be nice to read about Colby or Phillipe Sabon's heir. So, ladies -- get to readin!!

    A good Diana Palmer classic

    I read this book so many times that it began to fall apart! You can never love someone too much. That's what Cicely does and gets rejected by Tate, continually. Before Tate can admit his love for Cicely, obstacles come between them and Cicely gives up and moves away. Tate gets her back but not before Cicely rejects him. You can guess the rest... This story is heartbreaking but beautifully written with a warm and fuzzy end.

    Cruel

    It seems like the last few books I've read by Diana Palmer, she has made the male lead very cruel to the female. I prefer a little kindness. It was extremely cruel to let her believe what she did about Audrey.

    I loved it!

    so far i have read 3 diana palmer books and i love them all, but they all seem to have the same plot. They all are 'forbidden' loves, then they make love, breakup, end up pregnant, then get together. but they are still amazingly well written books

    Loved it!!!!!

    This was one of the first Diana Palmer books I read, and I was not disappointed. It was touching and made me want to go to the nearest native american reservation and see if i could find my own Tate.

    Extremely Touching

    This is the first novel I have read of Diane Palmer's, and I gaurantee it won't be my last. Although the book is categorized in the romance section, it has a bit of mystery and action added to it. However, Palmer never strays too far from the romance. She adds what many readers enjoy: jealousy, hurt, trust, love, etc.. Those who read 'Paper Rose' will not be disappointed.

    AWESOME!

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. Tate is my dream man. He's manly, but not afraid to show his emotions. You can just tell he loves Cecily because he turns to her when he's in pain. She's the one he misses and when he's frantic, just the sight of her calms him. Cecily is a wonderful match for him. She is a strong lady who does not allow Tate to step all over him, but she gives him what he needs and more. I love reading this book over and over and over. Their love is very tangible and this story is very memorable and poignant.
