Rated 5 out of 5★ by GrotesquelyBeautiful A collection of three great romance novels! "A Bend In The Road", "True Believer", and "At First Sight", are three excellent Nicholas Sparks ("The Notebook", "The Lucky One") novels, released together for the first time in this excellent Christmas compilation!"A Bend In The Road" contains terrific suspense; "True Believer" contains some of the biggest surprises (and one of the happiest endings) in Sparks' repertoire; "At First Sight" contains amazing twists and turns, and one of the saddest endings I have ever read (and I mean that in a good way).One of the best aspects of Nicholas Sparks' novels is the fact that they often come with discussion questions. Even when I don't participate in book-clubs, I still like reading them and answering them, so as to better understand myself, and the novel. Unfortunately, these discussion questions are missing from these three novels. This did not affect my rating, however, because these discussion questions aren't necessary to enjoy the novels. That, and the discussion questions can be found for free on Nicholas Sparks' website.On the plus side, however, "True Believer" does contain a preview of Sparks' 2006 novel, "Dear John"; specifically, it contains the prologue and first chapter of "Dear John". This preview can be found at the end of the book.I wholeheartedly recommend these novels, and this collection! 01/11/2013
