Has anyone read her Calder Series??  If so is it worth reading??  I have the complete series and can't decide if I want to read it or not.

 

So give me some of your opinions please.

I read a couple of them ages ago.  I thought they were good if you like life on the ranch stories.

I was never a big Dailey fan, think I may have read the first one but was never interested in reading the others. I tried one of her single titles way back when and I didn't think it was very good. I'd suggest trying the first book in the series and go on from there. I can't remember how long it's been since they came out but they're probably dated in a lot of ways, which I see in the older Harlequin Presents, for example; usually good for a little chuckle.

seems like the men are a bit rough - that's typical of the time period they were written. she has some harlequins I like-  some are keepers for me though probably more for sentimental reasons than actually being great stuff.

They were OK. There are some HUGE time shifts that compleatly ruined the stories for me. It starts out fine, in the 1800's. Chase--a major character in the series is born in the EARLY 20th century, like 1908 but from his story on its modern day. At least as modern as the 1980's can be.
