Endingnya agak kurang jelas. Can he let himself Abby had spent years rebuffing any attempts to participate in a biography about her late husband but when finances get a little too tight she is finally ready to authorize and participate. Too many unanswered questions and information. For all my discontent with elements of the book, I ended up liking it well-enough, if only for the central relationship working itself out. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.
The first book in the series, introducing the O'Hurley family, starting with Abby, the middle of triplets and widow of a famous racer, and Dylan Crosby, a journalist hired to write her late husband's biography.
Abby is doing her best to raise her two sons alone, while trying to make her horse breeding farm stable. She's far from what Dylan expected and he insists on viewing her with his expectations in mind for a long time, led by the cynicism of past experiences.

He does not think very highly of her and can tell that she's lying, while she is determined to keep her secrets her own, but the sparks between them fly from the beginning.
An engaging story with its ups and downs, and a few entertaining glimpses into the original O'Hurley family. Maddy, the youngest triplet's story comes next in Dance to the Piper.

Also, she has an unreasonable need to have her children grow up with an altered image of who their father was. Dylan thinks she is nothing but a spoiled rich girl, can't imagine Abigail was 18 when she married a famous race car driver, but not long after their "happy ever after" it became a nightmare.
Dylan thinks she is nothing but a spoiled rich girl, can't imagine any other reason she would have stayed besides the money. Unbeknownst to him, she received nothing from her spouses death, all of this fortune going to her mother in law.
As Dylan realizes Abigail is more than she appeared he is intrigues and desperate for find out who she really is and what makes her tick. Another Great book by Nora Roberts. I was in something of a funk last night, and this book kept me company. And good company it was.
Originally written in the 80s, it's the earliest Nora Roberts book I've read so far. While the book is only mildly dated, really, it is less I dunno The biggest weakness is, unfortunately, the core of the four-book series: Raised by a die-hard entertainer, the triplet girls and older brother grew up on the road. They have understandably s I was in something of a funk last night, and this book kept me company. They have understandably strong ties to each other. My problem is that those relationships are very idealized.
We see the good side of the father's need to perform and his love for them seems real, but the book glossed over any aspects of living an essentially itinerant life that were more negative. Maybe the dad just irritated me and I didn't like how big a pass he gets for those things that annoyed me.
The romance with Abigail worked okay. The situation was overtly confrontational and Dylan was kind of a jerkface and only barely redeemed later on. And Abby frustrated me, sometimes, as well. She's supposedly smart. She can't have thought her plan would really work with someone of Dylan's reputation, could she?
It was weak of her to even try. The pure relationship side of the romance is what made it work, in the end, for me. It was here, when Dylan allowed himself to be softer, more caring, that I started to be more invested in their story. For all my discontent with elements of the book, I ended up liking it well-enough, if only for the central relationship working itself out.
A note on Steamy: Only one real sex scene though several lead-ins with occasional frank talk about sex made this way mild on the steamy scale. There are deeper issues involved, however, so this book is more mature than its pure explicitness indicates. Oh homem tapado!! This is the first chapter of the O'Hurley series. A set of triplet girls, born to a song and dance couple always on the move to their next gig. With music and travel in their blood, the paths that they take as adults are predictable.
That is except for Abby. This is her story. Swept off her feet by a charismatic race car driver, she finds that life in the fast lane is not all it's cracked up to be. Her marriage rocky at best, she retreats to her horse farm in Virginia.
There she finds a modicum This is the first chapter of the O'Hurley series. There she finds a modicum of peace, raising her babies and spreading her wings in the world of horse breeding. When her husband is killed in a crash, she retreats ever deeper into the peaceful solitude her farm offers. That is until she allows a biography to be written about her late husband.
The brash, intense reporter sent to ferret out "the facts", threatens to destroy her hard won peace. She seriously rethinks her decision.
Love can be sweeter the second time around. That is my take away from this story. I liked Abby right away, her back story and the strength to do what needed to be to take care of her kids. But I did, even though he poo pooed her concern over presence of the children and their possible reaction to the relationship.
Personally I found that offensive and would have been a deal breaker for me. But hey,not my story to tell, right? In the last part of the story, we are re-introduced to all the triplets along with Mom and Pop, as they gather in support of Abby. A perfect set up for chapter two of the O'Hurley's. I'm reading this because it is a available as an audio download at the library b was 'in' last night when I was looking for a short book to listen to while waiting for the book I really want to turn up at the library and c is short: Some books I feel are too smart for me: This book I thought was not smart enough.
The hero was annoying beyond belief. If this is supposed to be an Alpha male I don't want one - he came acr Disclaimer: If this is supposed to be an Alpha male I don't want one - he came across to me as a bully, and a stupid one at that.
For an investigative journalist he seemed weirdly unable to give up his assumptions in spite of pretty clear evidence to the contrary. The dramatic climax of the book was so clumsily signalled in the first couple of chapters that I spent the entire last third of the book anticipating it. I can only assume that Nora Roberts has come along as a writer since the '80s. This is the first book of the The O'Hurleys series, Abby gets to fall in love all over again.
In the process of leaving a legacy for her children, having a book written about her late husband seemed the thing to do. After meeting Dylan and seeing how deep he was really going to probe for the answers she didn't want to give she started second guessing that choice. Dylan just wanted answers and knew that the widow was the only source, what he didn't count on was becoming attached to the kids and t This is the first book of the The O'Hurleys series, Abby gets to fall in love all over again.
Dylan just wanted answers and knew that the widow was the only source, what he didn't count on was becoming attached to the kids and to their mom. Book While most of this romance is predictable, there is a few twists to the story that make it interesting.
The family dynamics is fun and very enjoyable. Intersted in starting the next book in the series to find out which sister gets to find love next. Wieder mal ein typischer Nora Roberts-Roman.
Freue mich im Anschluss auf den zweiten Teil. Um boa leitura, sem grandes surpresas e poderia ser melhor porque tinha todos os ingredientes que gosto: Mas o final me pareceu incompleto, era como se faltasse algo. Fans of Nora Roberts. Old skool silhouette from Nora Roberts. Really enjoyed this story of a tough biographer and a widowed horse breeder. The story really holds up despite its age. It is jarring to have the hero light up a cigarette more than once in the story, but overall it's still a strong story.
Jan 25, Maria rated it it was ok Shelves: A very easy to read book.
A sweet story but it was rather shallow. And what happened to the book that was so central in the beginning? May 11, Lirisha Tuladhar rated it it was amazing. This was indeed a great book i shall say.. It was the first series of O hurley i read and well i cant deny it had me grasped into it till the very end The family indeed i loved the way Nora has been successfully portraying the picturesque of a perfect family..
There may be many many problems that arise in life but the o hurleys teach to never give up Abby and dylan were a great combination.. The way women think..
Reading this book i think it would be a lesson for men and women both about the way they think and act in life.. Included the parts with kids.. As for the main part.. Love can happen anytime.. Jun 29, Becky rated it liked it.
A wonderful start to the series. Molly O'Hurley gave birth to three triplets. The first book focuses mostly on Abby who is now a widow of a famous race car driver and raising two boys on her ranch. Her marriage was less than ideal and she is left trying to make this a working ranch and providing for all of them on next to nothing.
Journalist Dylan Crosby is known to be a hard nose investigative reporter who wants the real story of her late husband. He knows when people are not being up fr A wonderful start to the series. He knows when people are not being up front and has his ways of getting the information he wants.
Abby is strong and will do her best to give him only what she wants in the book. Abby and the boys have a way of wearing down his heart. I really enjoyed this story and all the characters. But I felt left hanging in their story. Too many unanswered questions and information. I hope the other books will answer some of these for me.
Abby had spent years rebuffing any attempts to participate in a biography about her late husband but when finances get a little too tight she is finally ready to authorize and participate.
Dylan has arrived at the farm to learn about the princess under the minks. But what he finds is a down to earth mom of two who has no problems mucking out a stall in the horse barn. He's convinced she's putting on an act for him but as he gets to know her, he begins to fall under her spell. Can he let himself Abby had spent years rebuffing any attempts to participate in a biography about her late husband but when finances get a little too tight she is finally ready to authorize and participate.
Can he let himself really fall before he knows all her secrets or will Abby really let herself be vulnerable and really trust Dylan? I really great listen and start to the O'Hurley series.
I'm excited to continue with the rest of the family finding their true love! Feb 28, Lindzi Mayann rated it really liked it. I really wasn't sure what to think of this book and even whilst reading I switched between not being that bothered to really liking it! Anyway finished it now and overall it was definitely a good, easy read. My friend has leant me all 4 in the series so I'll definitely be trying out the next one soon!
I am intrigued to read more from Nora Roberts as I know she has written so many stories, good on her! I find her ability to pen so many inspiring and want to know more of them.
