FOREVER AFTER is a wonderfully written story. The characters are so real that you are pulled into their lives as you read. Meredith and Heath are two people who eventually grow to understand each other as they finally confess their secrets; however, the brightest stars in this book are Sammy and Goliath, child and dog, but not just any dog he's a retired canine cop with numerous accomodations. The love that develops between them is truly a heavenly match. Sammy will have you laughing out loud with some of the things that she says. The life that she has suffered prior really lets you know that children can be strong individuals. I hope that a sequel may be in the works for Sammy after she grows up. This book truly is enjoyable. So relax and enjoy.

I have read quite of few of Catherine Anderson's books which have always been very good to excellent but I am sorry to say, that in my opinion, this book was awful. I am quite cross that I had to pay money to read this. I find it hard to believe that this book was written by the same author as her other wonderful books.

It started out good but just deteriorated until by the epilogue I thought I was reading a comedy.

The hero of the book was dealing with a damaged woman and said he was going to rape her! Unbelievable!

The dog was great, I love dogs - that's why this book got a star - one star for the lovely dog!

I realize this book has a lot of good reviews so this is only my opinion - I thought it was awful. I feel as if I wasted my time and money.

Catherine Anderson's obvious intelligence and sensitivity comes through in this tale of a desparate-but-strong mother, her precocious-but-withdrawn child, a big-hearted Rottweiler, and a strong-and-sensitive sheriff. I loved many of the scenes, especially the one of Goliath, the Rottweiler, sleeping on his back in the bathtub, and the classic scene of the daughter washing the sheriff's mouth out with soap (their agreement if he continued using cuss words). I enjoy Ms. Anderson's well-crafted writing, and love her stories. This is the first contemporary of her's I have encountered, but I hope it is not the last!

When Meredith married Dan Calendri, she did not realize how abusive her spouse was. So when he dies, Meredith feels that she and her little girl are finally safe. That illusion is quickly shattered when Dan's father Glenn decides he wants to raise his granddaughter and will go to any length to obtain his desires. Glenn, who has mob connections, works behind the scenes to get Meredith declared incompetent so that he can gain custody. She knows that she is going to lose. Fearing for her daughter, who was abused by Dan, Meredith and Sammy flee into the night.
The pair moves to a remote area of Oregon where her nearest neighbor is Sheriff Heath Masters. However, Sammy fears all males and Meredith is afraid that Glenn will find her so both of them try to avoid Heath. The frightened females never counted on Heath's canine Goliath, who adopts the little girl as his own. Soon Heath finds himself falling in love with the two vulnerable females. However, Glenn is closing in on them and Heath has dedicated his career to a strict interpretation of the law. Besides having to risk his life for love, Heath has to sacrifice his ideals as a dedicated law enforcement official if he wants to save his beloved women. However, this is something he is not sure he can do.
FOREVER AFTER is a superb adult fairy tale romance that will excite fans of suspense. The lead protagonists are wonderful characters, though at times they are exceeded by the brilliantly developed Goliath and Sammy, whose fear of men seems so horrifically genuine. Catherine Anderson is truly one of the great writers of romantic suspense on the market today.

I suppose I just couldn't get past the "sweetkens" endearment and the constant mistrust of Heath even though he did nothing but help Meredith. Her account of how Dan treated her... spiders and guns during intimacy was too much for me to believe. I did like Sammy and Goliath. I do love dogs. Just my opinion.

This was a fantastic book. The bonding between the dog, child and 2 adults was beautiful. One of the best reads this year!

Catherine Anderson has written a top-notch novel as far as keeping the reader's interest goes. The characters are believable and so is the story. The scene-stealers, however, are Sammy (the child) and especially Goliath, the Rottweiler. He is some dog! Anyway, the book is a good one, so sit back and enjoy.
