    One thought on “The Reforming of Matthew Dunn”

    1. DNFAfter numerous times of trying to continue reading this book, I gave up! I couldn't take it anymore! The story was soooooo boring and there was no chemistry between Matt and Clare. I don't want to believe this book was written by my favorite author! I was so tired of Clare being too stubborn and illogical.I might give it another chance someday.

    2. I've started reading Virginia Kantra's backlist and have discovered I really like her writing (and her heroes). Quite a nice treat, since I'm a little hard to please with contemporaries.

    3. Kantra has a lush writing style that I really admire and characters who are well-rounded and believable. Not to mention that her MacNeill heroes are luscious enough to eat.

    4. This book, the first in the Carolina series, is well-written with a strong plot and believable and realistic characters. Ms Kantra's descriptions pulled me into the story and into the neighborhood she describes. I've already read the next book in the series The MacNeill brothers. They, too, were very well written.My only annoyance was with whoever put this into digital formatd spelled corn as com. I realize they look alike in print, but talk of "com bread" twice and the growing of "com" is irri [...]

    5. Kantra is another author on my automatically trust and read pile now. The contemporary romance genre has become so gimmicky and contrived that even good and heart felt writing is hard to find, so I am definitely glad to have found kantra who focuses on strong characterization and great, simple writing despite not offering anything new to the genre.

    6. I've read other books by this author and enjoyed them. This I did not. I was bored. By the time I got to the high drama part I was just over this story and started skimming just to get to the endWhilst I will look for future books in the Carlina Home series, I won't be reading further books in this one.

    7. 3 1/2 stars. A lovely, heart-warming story of loss, love, and community, and of two caring people trying in different ways to fight gang crimes in their neighborhood. Clare and Matt don't initially think each other's methods are very effective, but they come to admire and respect each other's determination and success.

    8. This is clearly an older Virginia Kantra novel, as it lacks the emotional depth and clear writing of her more recent works. I can see where this story was going, but it never really got there for me. Both Matt and Clare are understandable characters, but were written in a shallow manner, and because of that the romance falls flat.Definitely not one of Kantra's best.

    9. Virginia Kantra's male characters have such great voices. This hero, Matt, is so very masculine. He's a cop. He's a guy, and I never doubted it. That masculine voice is utterly convincing. I loved Matt!

    10. I really enjoyed this book. I love that Clare is wanting to change the neighborhood one kid at a time. She and Matt were wonderfully fun and rich characters. So glad Virginia Kantra was recommended to me. I'm going to keep reading her books.

    11. Definitely not my favorite of VK's books. I liked the reasons that both parties had for not wanting to be in a proper relationship, though I could have done without the ultimate resolution to the conflict. Resolution by way of extraordinary suspense circumstances just don't usually do it for me.

    12. Loved it! Great story with some exciting suspense and action, and Virginia's characters are always jump-off-the-page amazing. Plus there's a dog. Love!

    13. I really like Virginia Kantra's books. The Reforming of Matthew Dunn was a little slow for me at times, but I did really enjoy the ending.
