Why read it?

2 authors picked Carolina Moon as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Though a romantic suspense, this book’s setting in my home state of South Carolina is hauntingly chilling and pays homage to the sins of our past. There’s just something innately real about a small-town story that could be right next door. The heroine has visions, adding the psychic factor, plus the bump-in-the-night brushes bring an almost gothic ghostly quality. Nora has been a dominating force in the romance world for decades, and with good reason. Whether suspense, paranormal, or contemporary, no one writes a story like she can.

This one is a classic but it holds up. It has my favorite opening line ever in a book and Tory Bodeen is exactly the anti-heroine we all need. She’s back in town to clean up old business and maybe her family name. But the rumors swirling around her won’t let go, and it doesn’t help that she can hear everyone’s thoughts…. Including those of Cade, the boy she was ripped away from. The connection between Tory and Cade is one of the best Roberts has ever written. My personal copy of this book is worn from re-reading!
