First in the FIRSTBORN series. The story of Dayne (the moviestar) and Katy (the small town girl). Just enough mystery/suspense to keep you going with a touch of romance but don't read the book waiting for the happy ending. This is a series and there is no ending just a build up for the next book.

2 Fun stories for the price of one in a compact hardback. In Woman Hater Nicole White must tame Winthrop Christopher without letting him know she is the daughter of a millionaire. In If Winter Comes Carla Maxwell falls for Mayor Bryan Moreland but then suspects him of embezzlement. Light reading. Fun stories with a touch of humor.
This is a quick read of light and funny stories with great history as well. The historical aspect of World War 2 is very interesting and, unfortuneatly, believable. The 3 stories are intertwined by the 3 grandmothers and 3 granddaughters, making it fun to go from one story to the next.
Light reading but an engaging story. Realistic plot/mystery and the romance isn't a rushed "love-at-first-sight". It was refreshing to have a hero who was not rich and handsome for a change. Poor & handsome is rare.
