A Man for Amanda (The Calhouns #2)

>> Monday, November 10, 2003

Just as an experiment, I'm going to read all this series in a short period (not quite in a row, that would just be too much). Book #2 is A Man for Amanda.

Amanda Calhoun already has way too much on her plate. She's balancing her work as assistant manager at the Bay Watch hotel with the search for the Calhoun emeralds and with planning her sister C.C.'s wedding. She really has no place in her life for easygoing Harvard-educated cowboy Sloan O' Riley, who's in charge of the renovations necessary to turn her home, The Towers, into a luxury hotel. But love waits for no master plan.
This series is getting better. A Man for Amanda was an improvement over Courting Catherine, basically because I liked the love story much better. A B+.

The relationship between Sloan and Amanda really captured my attention, and as an added bonus, there were plenty of lovely scenes which gave me that nice stomach-clenching sensation. There's one when Sloan gets all jealous and makes a scene because Amanda is going out with someone else that had me sighing, and I'm definitely not someone who finds irrational jealousy attractive.

This story introduces a suspense subplot to the series, and in this case it adds to the story. It's not very distracting, and even though there are a couple of guns floating around, I never really got any sense of danger.
