Overview

Readers have long flocked to the works of LaVyrle Spencer, one of America’s most cherished storytellers. From The Fulfillment to Morning Glory to Then Came Heaven, her touching, emotionally charged novels have examined love in all its forms. In Separate Beds, two attractive, headstrong people meet - and fireworks ensue.

Catherine Anderson and Clay Forrester come from two completely different worlds, but one blind date leaves them forever linked. Clay, a handsome law student, and Catherine, a serious, bookish undergrad, experience an evening they will never forget. Fortified by the beauty of the night, as well as a bottle of wine, they share a night together. A few short months later, Catherine discovers she’s pregnant. They agree to a marriage of convenience, an arrangement that suits them both - until they begin to fall in love.

Moving and deeply affecting, Separate Beds is a celebration of the healing power of love.

I have been an avid reader since I was barely a teenager. I spent alot of time at my local public library and found Lavryle Spencer books early on. I read this book when I was 16 years old and now in my 30s it is still my absolute favorite. I have read it countless times over the year and own two copies in hardback. Books like this make me a snobbish book consumer. However, I have managed to find other authors that I am faithful to: Emily Giffin and Lisa Kleypas (contemporary novels). My second favorite novel is "Smooth Talking Stranger" by Lisa Kleypas, followed by "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin. I have read everyone of their books (as well as Mrs. Spencer) and automatically by any new releases. Check them out!

I used to love Daniel Steele books until I read this one. After that I went in search of all of Laverle Spencer books. I have read every single one. I shared this book with several of my friends, they loved it and they too have read all of her books. I have read this several times and will now enjoy listening to her tapes.

i have read many romance books but this one is by far the best. once i finished it i felt so sad that i was done that i had to reread it! i could not put it down and have since read it 5 more times. and each time i find it more interesting. i felt as though i was cathrine and i really did fall in love with clay. i would recomend it to everyone!

I have read a few of her books and they are always so full of vivid details with great character development....but she always loses me at the end with the HEA. The plots are very realistic and draws you in, and the expectation is there of course that love will prevail, I just wish it was more believable. I wanted to give it a 2 because of the ending, but it's worth more.

Love how LSpencer creates a novel where the reader feels like she really knows the characters.

This was the first Lavyrle Spencer book I read and it remains one of my top favorites after over 20 years. Ultimate love story! Could read this one over and over and over again.

Even though I could not stop reading this book, I was a bit disappointed at the ending. Ms. Spencer knows how to make the players seem real - I felt like I knew them all personally. Catherine really needed psch help, as well as her mother. I wanted to know who Catherine's real father was but it was never disclosed. I think that would have added a lot to the story if we all knew who it was, even if Catherine herself didn't. Anyway, it is a good read and I would still recommmend it.
