4.0 out of 5 stars Love doesn't always begin smoothly 7 Jan 2004
By "notwhoyouwouldexpect" - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hank Coulter notices a young woman at a bar, beautiful but a bit shy and inexperienced. He's been chugging drinks with his buddies all evening and matters rocket out of control. He hasn't used protection and also rushes heedlessly to his climax, then passes out in his truck -- and in the morning only vaguely remembers the night before, including the girl's name.
Carly Adams had been blind until surgery temporarily restored her sight and she faces a future of repeated surgeries which eventually will no longer be able to retain her vision. Her unexpected pregnancy threatens her newfound sight sooner than anyone expected, putting her new life and grad school plans on hold.
Hank steps up to the plate despite Carly's vehement reluctance to have anything more to do with him, and marries her to help her through the pregnancy. Falling hard for this beauty while she is determined to keep her independence and still is hurt, angry and distrustful, Hank has his work cut out for him.
This is another visit to the Coulter and Kendrick clans, a great addition to her recent books. If this is your first Catherine Anderson, welcome to ranch life on the high dry plains of eastern Oregon, so different from the Pacific coast cities and mountains. You'll want to explore the stories of the rest of the families as soon as you finish Blue Skies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah. 27 May 2004
By Huntress Reviews - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Carly wants to see everything now that she is no longer blind, and one of the first things her eyes fall on is well worth a second look. Hank Coulter is all man, and their dance goes from the barroom to the bedroom. Then, soon after, Carly discovers she's pregnant, and though Hank made a big impression on her, he can't even remember her name when she calls to tell him. To make matters worse, pregnancy will probably undo all the surgery's miracles, leaving her blind once more.
Hank's memory needs some work, but his honor functions well. He immediately wants to do the right thing and marry Carly. She agrees out of need, but as Hank spends weeks caring for her and showing her all she can see before the world goes dark, convenience turns into reality. Hank's world is full of innocent peril, forcing Carly to choose love or life.
(...)Catherine Anderson's name on a book is all that is needed to assure readers of a story that goes on the keeper shelf. It will always be heartwarming, filled with characters who jump off the page to your soul. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich in emotion ! 17 Jan 2004
By MaryGrace Meloche - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catherine Anderson's writing skills are like a fine wines - they only grow better with age. This is an absolutely wonderful book, packed with heartrending emotion, but deeply satisfying. Anderson again pens the ultimate male hero in Hank Coulter. Tall, rugged, masculine to the core, yet this male oozes kindness and sensitivity.

In true Anderson fashion, she pivots her story around a blemished woman. Here it is the enchanting Carly Adams. Blind since birth, Carly's doctors have given her a new lease on life with a recent eye operation. Her sight restored, she innocently sets out to taste all life's experiences. One of those morsels happens to be the handsome Hank Coulter.

Outside a seedy bar, in the back seat of Ford pickup, Carly and Hank perform the mating game with successful consequences -- they manage to solve the mating formula. One month later reality rears its ugly head and then what becomes of two strangers who will soon be parents?

In Anderson's novels, her two main characters are always cast together. Her characters usually are forced to work on their relationship - and work they do - but along the way the reader enjoys the effort.

This skilled author controls emotion with an iron fist. Catherine Anderson inflames her words with immense passion pressuring her reader to turn the pages.

This is part of Anderson's fine Kendrick/Coulter series and I think it is the best of the lot. I look forward to Zeke's tale.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying Characters 20 Jan 2008
By A. Roberts - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm probably in the minority here but the main characters were downright annoying. I would feel badly for anyone losing their sight and the problems it would incur but Carly is just too annoying for me to feel a lot of sympathy. She's so independent she isn't going to let anyone help her. There is just so much a blind person can do on their own without help. Then Hank is blamed for everything. Carly was responsible for her actions as much as Hank. At least he tried to own up to his resposibility and take care of Carly in any way he could. Nothing he does is right and even after he falls in love with her, Carly still is unkind to him. Even when she goes home to her father she lets him believe Hank is at fault. IT was her choice to run away. Some reviewers talked about crying and I kept looking for something to cry about. Never did find it. I have read other Catherine Anderson books I enjoyed but this one was just irritating. Hank's character was more likable than Carly's at least after the first few chapters, but still not up to the other Coulters or Kendricks.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a rich story! 16 Dec 2004
By Love 2 Read Novels - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Blue Skies has been well reviewed so I will just say that I really enjoyed the book. What a storyline. I thought the characters of Carly and Hank were both very deep. I have grown to love the Coulter/Kendrick families. They are so loyal to one another and have a deep love. Hank wanted only to have a little fun with Carly..a one night stand, no strings. But...Carly finds out that she's pregnant. Hank has felt heartsick since that night and looks for her but he doesn't know her last name. When he finds her he bullies her into getting married. But...he finds that she is really everything he would have picked in a wife and wishes that things could have started differently. He is so kind and gentle to her and always thinking of her and she appreciated all he does but is still very reserved because she knows that eventually when she goes blind he will leave her. The story is very tender and shows that love can overcome all obstacles. Love is for the long haul. This is a keeper. Highly recommend.
