I am in love with this book. My favorite out of the series, although the other two are also must-reads. Margo is human and flawed and you cannot help but adore her, and Josh is everything you could want in a man. They make an amazing pair, and plus its fun to read a novel where the unrequiteted love begin with the guy, as it's usually vice-versa. One of Nora Robert's best!

Ah, the guilty pleasure of curling up with a cup of coffee and losing yourself to these great characters. Formulaic? Yes, with no apology. Predictable? Deliciously so! The difference between this story and the majority of the "bodice-ripper" genre is just that, it has a STORY. The author fully develops her characters and embodies them with characteristics we all want to find in our friends. Pimples and all. Even the "bad" guys' are written so well, you cheer when they all get what's coming to them! I found myself commiserating with the wronged Laura and rooting for her to finally smell the coffee and grow a backbone, feeling sympathy for the career driven and solitary Kate, and wanting to shake both the strong-willed Margo and Josh into reason. The back-story between Margo and her Mom brought tears to my eyes. I don't usually read "romance" novels. I'm a devoted James Patterson page-turner, but I welcome reading more of Ms.Robert's work. If they are all written with the same devotion to story and charcter development, I will be a new devotee. The sex passages were the whipped cream on this delicious latte.

This is a book that I keep going back to. I believe it is the best in the series. You are introduced to the characters and cannot help but to connect to the girls friendship. You respond to Margo's inner struggle to find herself and fall in love with Josh. His love and understanding of Margo is what makes readers read romance. The hero and the heroine remain true without any sappiness. This is a must read and will become a favorite reread!

I really liked this book... I made for a really good read, its one of the type of books that you want to curl up with and read on a rainy day. Nora Roberts is truly wonderful at telling a story and have you right there in the thick of it.

I love trilogies, and Nora Roberts does them best. I've read all of the books in this particular trilogy, have them in my collection, and have read them more than once. If you don't read Nora Roberts you don't know what you're missing.

Among the three books in this series, Daring to Dream is my favorite. The love story between Margo and Josh is so compelling. Each story in this trilogy is a heartwarming tale that leaves you asking for more. I am such a big fan of Nora Roberts. Her books take you to an entirely different place every time.

This book is magnificent. I found myself so encrossed in the story. I am just amazed at how Nora Roberts can make you feel. The romantic scenes with Margo and Josh were so powerful. The passion, desire and love between the two of them was so strong. You could only wish you had that type of love in a lifetime. Bravo Nora you are magnificent.

I have read all 3 books they get better and better. The characters become your personal friends and you will find yourself thinking about them from time to time-they become real. The experiences that each character endures will leave you laughing, crying, excited and scared. You will have a hard time putting this book down. Roberts has done it again with an outstanding book I would read over and over.

Daring to Dream (#1 in the Dream Trilogy) follows fiesty Margo Sullivan from her modeling days, the inevitable fall from grace, and then straight jump into bed with a man who she's known all her life. This book, and I swear I don't generally say this about Nora Roberts' books, felt contrived and silly from the onset. I found Margo to be a brat and her newfound love, Josh Templeton, a jerk with anger and jealousy issues. Margo, of course the housekeeper's daughter, grew up in the fabulously wealthy Templeton household... think the Hiltons. If you can't imagine caring about Paris' love life, skip Margo's. Margo's fall from fame to finding her love and newest successful and money-making adventure was too quick and left me not caring all that much about any of them. Giving the author the benefit of the doubt, I did pick up #2 in the trilogy, and I hope it doesn't disappoint. After all, few of her books have. One of the things I love about Nora Roberts is her books aren't generally predictable. She has written trilogies on vampires (The Circle Trilogy), witches (Three Sisters Island Trilogy) and has a series of thrillers under the alias J.D. Robb, and all the ones I've read have been well written and pulled you in from the beginning. So don't judge an author by one book, especially one as prolific as Nora.

After ten years of modeling success, Margo Sullivan found herself in the middle of a career ending scandal and drug charges that she had no connection or knowledge of. The type of person Margo was, she went home to Monterey California. The Templeton house had always been her home, her mum was the housekeeper, Laura Templeton and Kate Powell her best friends now with the world talking about her the only place to run and hide was the Templeton house. The big brother figure of the family, Josh Templeton had taken it upon himself to help Margo out even if she wasn¿t aware of it. This situation was no different. Now that she was home, convincing her to see him as more than just a brother, more than just a friend might take more than the ten years he had already waited for her. Maybe if she figured out what she wanted to do with her life, he could find a way to show her that he belonged in it too. Book 1 of the Dream Trilogy. As with a lot of series, book 1 is difficult, it spends so much time with the set up and putting all the characters out there, that some things seem to be lost. While I liked the characters, getting to know Margo, Josh, Laura, Kate, Ann (Margo¿s mum), Susie and Tommy (Laura & Josh¿s parents) took a lot of the story and left little for full character development and the romance between Margo and Josh really suffered for it. Besides, Margo and Josh were already in love, they had known each other for so long and it had been there for so long that the actual ¿falling in love¿ was done and gone before the story began. I always like to watch the ¿falling in love¿ part but with this one, we got them trying to figure out how to tell each other how they feel and how to make it work. It was a good story for a beginning to the Dream Trilogy, but not a great story. I am only hoping that the second (Holding the Dream) and the third (Finding the Dream) goes better.

Margo is beautiful. And she knows it. Determined to find fortune and fame, she heads for Hollywood and ends up a smashingly successful model - that is until it all comes crashing down around her ears. Coming home broke and humiliated isn't easy. But when you have two best friends like Kate and Laura, anything's possible. A new business, and a new romance have promise - but can Margo ever look beyond herself enough to find the happily ever after that's been waiting for her?Margo's story kicks off a new trilogy in Robert's classic style. This one's great for an afternoon's curl-up on the couch.

I came to the Nora Roberts party late, but having made an effort over the last couple of years of expanding my fluff horizons, I thought I should at least see what the fuss is all about. This was the first book I read from the author and it wasn't a bad start. I'd actually picked this book up a long time ago and put it down after reading the first few pages because, well, I'm not entirely sure why. There's nothing wrong with it over than it's a bit overwrought. In my older age, however, that didn't bother me in any way. In fact, within a few pages, I didn't want to put it down and, since this was my bedtime reading book, actually would head up to bed early just so that I could get a few more chapters in. (Going to bed early is unheard of for me.) I was unexpectedly drawn to the characters, surprised to like nearly every single one. The plot was also more than sufficient to hold my interest and didn't seem too dated. So why only 3 1/2 stars? It was very formulaic -- which obviously works for Nora Roberts, given her massive success. And, in a way, that's better for her since, although I have no interest in going back and rereading this particular book, I've now begun looking for her other books instead as they are a known and trusted quantity. I would certainly recommend it for a quick, engaging read.

Love how important sister relationship is highlighted in this series. Romance is awesome. But you need friends (sisters) to lean on and call you out to keep you headed where you need to go.

I have been a Nora Roberts fan for many years. I can honestly say that I never want her stories to end. Beautifully settings, wonderful characters, and an ending that can honestly begin a new chapter. Loved it.

I guess I'm used to NR trilogies with vampires and fiends or crazy ex's murdering cattle. This book introduced Margo, Laura and Kate, childhood friends who grew up in the same house. This book chronicles Margo's fall from modeling grace and the beginning of the second-hand store the ladies run. Not too much going on in this book.
