I love For The Roses. I cherish The Claybourne Brides. I absolutely adore Come The Spring! Cole was always by favorite Claybourne, and I am glad that he got a whole book dedicated to him (although the other brothers would have been fabulous in their own books also). The three women who were thought to be witnesses were each unique, and it is thoroughly puzzling as to who the real witness is and who the bad apple is. And, we finally get to meet Daniel Ryan, the man haunting the Claubournes ever since the Bride Trilogy. He was certinly a match for Cole. The characters were three dimensional, so much so that it seemed like you were watching a movie rather then reading a book. Julie Garwood is wonderful at writing suspense, and I hope she goes back to it sometime in the future. As always, the romance was dazzeling. If you've read any of the books in the series, you'll miss out on a real treat if you don't read this one.

Cole Clayborne is a handsome, sweet, tough, Montana man who's finally caught up with that no-good-compass-stealing-thief: Daniel Ryan. Cole and Daniel eventually "join" forces to catch a low-down-rotton group of criminals ... and wouldn't you know it: three women lead them a merry chase, and unwittingly both men find love along the way.
Julie Garwood proves again that her wonderfully sweet style of writing always produces 'simply the best' in romantic literature.
A sequel to "For the Roses" and "One white rose, one red rose, one pink rose", Cole Clayborne's tale is most satisfying and is definitely worth the read, again and again! In four words: a sensationally sexy showdown

While I'm not a huge Western romance fan, I could see that Come the Spring has merit. Most of the characters, the men at least, seemed quite real and likeable, even amusing at times. But the women felt lacking, which seems strange since they were crafted by a woman, but that's the way they came across. I enjoyed reading about Cole, especially his interaction with the baby, Caleb, but didn't cheer with him over his pick of women.
I don't know, but I think I will try reading another of Garwood's books. Though her dialogue could use improvement, she has a lot of talent and it's obvious why she's so popular. I just didn't feel this book was everything it could have been.

Usually Julie Garwood makes you laugh and warms your heart. She delved into the arena of thriller as early as "Castles" and came along nicely with it in the opening of "Come the Spring". Sadly, she seemed to forget how to write her humorous and charming relationships along the way.

Trying to do a dual romance in this novel was a mistake. Time was taken away from both relationships such that one loses interest in either one. That leads a lacking dramatic finale because you just don't care.

The writing appeared exceptionally juvenile in places where humor was intended.

It was a nice try and I applaud an author wanting to grow her talent, but this Clayborne series never should have left the editor's desk. "Come the spring" was half-baked at best.

I absolutely loved the Clayborne series. I just finished Come the Spring, and as always, Garwood kept me intrigued from start to finish. I never want to put her books down and find myself sneaking at work to catch a quick chapter at my desk!! Come the Spring had excellent twists and I loved the chemistry between Cole and Jessica/Grace and Daniel. The scenes with Cole and Caleb were especially endearing to me, being a single mother. Garwood appeals to the romantic in me every time! This was no exception. This is a must read, especially if you have read the four other Calyborne novels. It brings everything full circle!

I've never been a major fan of suspense but Julie Garwood really kept me on my toes as I tried to figure out who was actually the true witness in the story. I really love the way Ms Garwood weave both the suspense as well as the romance elements into the plot. "Come the Spring" is a wonderful finish to the stories of "For the Roses" and "The Clayborne Brides".

Come the Spring is my all time favorite by Julie Garwood. Cole Claborne is my favorite brother from the Clayborne Brides and Rose Hill. The story was heartstopping and aching. Julie Garwood always knows how to do it. She is amazing.

This book was one of the most engrossing books I have read in a long time. It really kept me guessing, and that's pretty tough for me to do (when there's a mystery involved, I can usually guess the solution before its revelation). I had not read the previous books in this series (though I am doing so now, thanks to this book), but it was easy to follow and very enjoyable despite that.
What's most intriguing about this book is that there are three female leads! You might think that would be confusing, but I did not find it to be. The book begins with a bank robbery and brutal massacre, and our two main heroes are trying to determine which of the three female leads is the star witness (and thus in terrible danger). I can honestly say I did NOT guess correctly, and I definitely was not expecting the plot twists and turns. I literally could not stand to be away from this book for three days, and it got so bad that I was reading it at stop lights in my car! (Shame on me!)
This was my first Julie Garwood book, and it was worth reading. I enjoyed all of the characters, and found that she did a good job of balancing the three different story lines, and bringing them together. My only regret is that, because there were three different "plots", she was not able to develop all the characters as much as I would have liked. For that reason, I probably would give it 4 1/2 instead of five stars. However, that did not detract from my enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend this.
To help you determine if YOU might like this book as much as I did, my tastes are such that my favorite authors are Jude Devereaux and Catherine Coulter.

Her books are awsome! She is one of the top romance writter in my book I have read 17 of Julie Garwood's novels and she astounds me every time I read a new one. I suggest if you want to read this book start with the book "For the Roses" then go onto read "One Pink Rose", "One white Rose", and "One Red Rose" and then read "Come the Spring" These books are all about the Claybourne family and how they strived to survive raising an abandoned baby that they found in New York and turning her into a lady. After their little Mary Rose is grown up and Married to a highland Lawyer named Harrison each brother is tempted by women into settling down will the brothers run or face the destiny that MAMA Rose tricks them into. I am so happy that they decided to give Cole a bigger book about his story. He is my favorite out of the Clayborne brothers so I thought that he deserved a longer story. Cole is lead on an exciting adventure by a US Marshall so that he can get the gold compass back that he took from MAMA Rose at a train station hoping that Cole would try to get it back. Cole doesnt understand the US Marshals intentions until its too late. I love this story it a gotta read by any Julie fan.

This book is outstanding. I am in the process of reading it now and I can't put it down. I love how I'm on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. I never quite know what will happen next. After reading For the Roses I was in love with Cole. I was disappointed when she wrote about the other brothers in the Roses trilogy and seemed to forget about Cole. The trilogy was terrific, but my favorite will always be Cole. When I heard about this book coming out, it couldn't come out fast enough. I am truly enjoying this book. I am almost through with it. I have about 100 pages left to read, and I started reading it this morning. As I said, I can't put it down. I know that you will enjoy it just as much as I am.
