Carolina Moon

by Nora Roberts

Hardcover, 2000



Tory Bodeen grew up in a small, rundown house where her father ruled with an iron fist and a leather belt--and where her dreams and talents had no room to flourish. But she had Hope--who lived in the big house, just a short skip away, and whose friendship allowed Tory to be something she wasn't allowed to be at home: a child.

Why the name? No mention of a carolina moon in the whole book. The end was surprising, but not overally. Liked that she teamed the good and bad girl up.

Excellent book, and I couldn't put it down. Luckily, I had the day off, so was able to finish it. The characters are so real, that I found myself looking for her father over my shoulder. Creepy, but good reading and written in such a way that the ending is ALWAYS a surprise.

This book had its ups and downs, but I have to say it was mostly ups. I thought I had it all figured out very early, but Nora surprised me! Though sometimes I think her climaxes are over a little too quickly (no pun intended). I am a little tired of the couples in these romance novels deciding to get married in what seems like seconds after they connect. I guess that's supposed to be romantic.… (more)

A Psychic story from Nora Roberts. Getting my interest going right from the start. And kept my interest right through to the end! One of the best Nora Roberts books I've read, it has plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing right to the end.

Great book. Loved the characters. Classic who-dun-it. Keeps you guessing until the very end. I liked who the villian turned out to be. I didn't want it to be one of the characters that I had come to care so much about! A little romance. Great book!

While herself an abused child, Tory Bodeen's best friend, Hope Lavelle, was killed in a vicious attack. Tory left home when she was eighteen and moved to New York, but now she has returned to Progress to face her childhood fears and open a boutique. Her arrival catches the attention of Cade Lavelle, Hope's brother. If you enoy Nora Roberts for her romantic suspense, this book will not disappoint.… (more)

Some of the books Nora Roberts writes are good and some are awful. This one was great. Interesting twist and good character development.

Carolina Moon was hard to get into and dry in some places, yet once it picked up it was hard to put down. Unlike other of Robert’s books, this one seemed to have an ending that was easy to understand, that is until the whole twist of the book, which resulted in once again a rushed scene that is a bit confusing as to what is happening.… (more)

Believe it or not this is my first Nora Roberts book. I was drawn to the South Carolina setting, the mystery, and the sultry psychic. I was not disappointed. As a native of South Carolina the setting and the people rang very true.It made me homesick. I also thought the mystery was very good. There were several possible killers that I debated. The psychic visions were creepy and not too heavy-handed. And there were dogs. It was a perfect storm of a book for me. There is romance and sex. I am not a big fan of long sex scenes and the ones in this book were not too long or detailed. (I don't need to SEE the math). Even though it had all the things I love, I was still surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.… (more)
