    I expected a lot more from Maureen Child, for I do love her books. However, this one was too predictable, too boring and just tedious for me to read! I did not like the main characters at all and their chemistry was too forced, according to me! Sigh it makes me feel really sad to give such a low rating to a Maureen Child book. I just couldn't get myself to give it a one, although there were times when I wanted to but just could not do it to this author for I really love her books. So two stars f I expected a lot more from Maureen Child, for I do love her books. However, this one was too predictable, too boring and just tedious for me to read!

    The TCC has been and on and off ongoing series, which has started to annoy me a bit because it never fricken ends! The romance between hero and heroine was just written to me, I didn't feel any emotional connection to the characters despite their eventual happy ending.

    Very good book with plenty of heat. Seven years ago Nathan had proposed to Amanda when he found out she was pregnant. While he was away at the police academy she suffered a miscarriage. Rumors had the reason as something else and Nathan believed them. Amanda broke their engagement and left town. Now she's back and the attraction between them is just as intense as it ever was. Okay, let me start out by saying that, as nice a guy as he basically was, Nathan was an idiot when it came to Amanda. When Very good book with plenty of heat. Seven years ago Nathan had proposed to Amanda when he found out she was pregnant. While he was away at the police academy she suffered a miscarriage. Rumors had the reason as something else and Nathan believed them. Amanda broke their engagement and left town. Now she's back and the attraction between them is just as intense as it ever was. Okay, let me start out by saying that, as nice a guy as he basically was, Nathan was an idiot when it came to Amanda. When she got pregnant he proposed because it was the right thing to do. He never told her if he loved her, he just told her the way it was going to be. When she lost the baby all those years ago he believed the rumors and didn't even bother to ask her about them. He just accepted the end of the engagement and walked away. He's never really forgotten her and now that she's back he can't get her off his mind. So he decides to sleep with her one more time to get her out of his system. Instead, she's just getting deeper under his skin. Nathan is the kind of guy who makes plans, and when things don't go according to that plan he gets a bit testy. He doesn't like not being in control. I really enjoyed seeing the effect that Amanda had on his life and how it blew his control all to pieces. I also loved seeing the way he had to deal with the gossip and realize that there was nothing he could do about it. It took a long time for him to accept the fact that he still loved her and he still had trouble actually saying the words. I did like the scene at the Fourth of July celebration when he was winning teddy bears for the little kids. It showed that there really was a nice guy there, even with all his idiocy. Amanda had come home to help her sister run the diner. She missed the small town while she was off in the city and is glad to be back. The gossip is an irritation but she can live with it. It's a small town and she knows she's going to run into Nathan sooner or later. When they do, sparks start flying again. At first she wants nothing to do with him, but when he comes to her and invites her out so they can talk she gives in. She doesn't expect to enjoy their dinner out so much and is reminded of why she loved him so long ago. She also doesn't expect to end up in bed with him again. She is dismayed to discover that she still loves him and once again has no idea if he loves her too. When she ends up pregnant and he proposes again, just like the last time, she has to decide if she can trust him with her heart again. I kept waiting for the "Missing Mogul" part of the book to come up, which didn't happen until near the end. I like what I saw of Alex and am looking forward to seeing how this storyline plays out.

He finally realize that he's been wrong all along yet he didn't even apologized to Amanda? I was like whaa? I don't like Amanda too. I mean, if she really is that strong, don't come near him. I don't know why she did that though, looming around him, acting like he didn't hurt her. Pam's a bitch, she deserves a freaking hard slap on her cheek. Seriously.

    Good story. Reunion story. Had a few Texas goofs, like trout in a Texas river that isn't right on the coast. Never gave any hints at all about where this town is- never even said West Texas or anything, except there were live oaks, which don't really grow in West Texas. And there was this wild river, with spray that jumped up on the bank. That started in the mountains. Which basically none of Texas's rivers do, except maybe Devil's River, which is a private, short river. Out by Del Valle or Del Good story. Reunion story.

And there was no mention of how much water was in the river. A true Texan never crosses a bridge without looking to see how much water is in the river (or creek or bayou or whatever). Nor do they stand beside a river without noting the water level, and since this latest drought started 3 years ago, it's always low. (the bayous in Houston look pretty good though) Anyway, I liked the story. Just got thrown by the weirdness.

    This is the 2nd book of the series I've read and I'm not impressed by any of them. I'd like to know the reason for the author taking the series into eternity, since she's short on inspiration. In this book, all the leading couple cares about is the gossip. Despite their painful past, the main theme of the story is just gossip! Well, I got sick and tired of them. After all these years, I finally get it.Royal is just a village with bored-to-death people.There is no other explanation for their gossipin This is the 2nd book of the series I've read and I'm not impressed by any of them.

    I really enjoyed Rumor Has It, as I enjoy all of Maureen Child's books. The Texas Cattleman's Club series is really good and even more enjoyable because they can each be read as a stand alone. Nathan started out bent on revenge and getting Amanda out of his system, but as plans go it wasn't one of his best. He had to start questioning where rumors were being started from that tore them apart to begin with. I really enjoyed Rumor Has It, as I enjoy all of Maureen Child's books.

    This is so messed up when you find out who is spreading rumors about Amanda. It took nearly the whole book for Pam to figure out that JT is in love with her and for Amanda and Nate to tell each other there feelings. Then you are left with the question of: "Where is Alex?".
