"Finding The Dream", the final installment of the Monterey, California-based "Dream" trilogy, lives up to the promise of the first two books and makes it nearly impossible to select a favorite. These three novels about "sisters of the heart" beautifully captured the essence of friendship and family. This novel tells the story of Laura Templeton, the daughter of the proprieters of the Templeton Hotel chain and "heiress" of sorts to that fortune. In reality the story is about Laura Templeton, divorced single mother of 2 girls, who won't cash in on her family's name (or money) and faces the very common problems of not enough time, not enough money, and not enough self-esteem after her crushing divorce. Enter Michael Fury, certified bad-boy and close childhood friend of Laura's brother. Michael takes up residence in the unused stables on Templeton property and Laura is forced to deal with a man she's always made a point to stay away from. Both find that they have a lot of misconceptions about the other, and they slowly discover that they like and admire each other after all. This is a romance novel, after all! I loved the "Dream" trilogy, and would be hard-pressed to recommend one book over another. For perhaps the first time in one of NR's trilogies, no clear-cut favorite emerges. They are equally wonderful.
