    One thought on “Secrets of Neverwood”

    1. **3.5 stars overall**I've been sitting on this review FOREVER, not because it wasn't a good anthology, but because it is a hard book for me to describe. All of these books were written in a similar tone with a similar vibe. The stories are all lightly paranormal, with the amount of ghostly intervention varying from book to book. The novellas all revolve around a trio of foster brothers who've inherited their home from their recently deceased foster mom. All of the brothers have BIG issues; with [...]

    2. Full review can be found at -Secrets of Neverwood is an outstanding anthology. While each story can be read as a standalone without the reader feeling as if they have missed something, I have to recommend the anthology as a whole. You go inside the heads of three very different men, foster brothers who barely know each other who are brought together when their foster mother dies and leaves her large mansion to the three. Calvin, Danny and Devon all have their own issues and it takes a lot for th [...]

    3. 3.5 stars (OVERALL)First of all – while Secrets of Neverwood can be read as stand-alone, I honestly think that reading all three stories will make the experience better, especially in understanding these guys while uncovering the secrets that Neverwood keeps. All three stories are intertwined, since these authors write about three “brothers” (I use the term loosely, since they are not born from same parent but they all stay in Neverwood as foster brothers). So the problem will start in Cal [...]

    4. 3.5 stars rounded up because I really liked the characters :)My feelings were all over the place with these stories, irritated, bored, angry, sad, happy, amused, intrigued. My rating would swing from two hearts to five and back again, with stops at three and four hearts along the way. Overall, though, I cared about the characters, and I liked the storyline that connected the individual books.One Door Closes by GB Leighton 3 starsThe mood of the story is nostalgic, with a hint of melancholy. It f [...]

    5. One Door Closes (Secrets of Neverwood #1) by G.B. Lindsey -- 3 starsWhen Calvin Ware returns to Neverwood he feels overwhelmed. Not only does the place bring forth memories of his past but the state of the house require extensive repairs when they have limited resources. Add to that the fact that he's having a hard time relating to his foster brothers while dealing with Audrey's presence and seeing his first love once again.As expected, the man is a mess of rambling thoughts and emotions.I was c [...]

    6. 3.5For detailed reviews see Amy and Sunny's review on this anthology.The beginning story was competent, but cold, and I felt detached of the characters and the story.Libby Drew and Copeland picked up the story with greater success, but it was Copeland's Danny who hit it out of the park.I did like the characters and the concept of this anthology, but the paranormal aspect in this story didn't work as much -for me- I would have preferred more conflict and involvement from the town. even more roman [...]

    7. I have to say I was a little disappointed. The story line was great and I loved the characters but, the first book was really hard to read. Not a good thing for a first book. The MC, Cal, has a problem with communication. He tends to jump to conclusions and not say things clearly enough for others to understand. I don't know if the author did this on purpose or to augment the issues of the MC, but she wrote like the MC behaved. I didn't even realize they were having sex until after it was finish [...]

    8. Secrets of Neverwood is a three book trilogy with each book following one of three foster brothers: Calvin, Danny, and Devon. The brothers, who vaguely remember and feel no brotherly love towards each other, come back to their old home when their foster mother Audrey dies, leaving her run-down family home, once a grand Victorian estate, to the three. The men run afoul of a deceptive developer who will do anything to get his hands on Neverwood and must learn to work together, trusting and opening [...]

    9. Overall Rating: A-(entire anthology which is cheaper than buying them individually)Reviewer's Note: These three books are very interwoven, but even with that, it would be very easy to read any one of them as a stand-alone (each book runs about 50,000 words). That being said though, the entire series is excellent and I highly recommend you buy them as a group. it will save you money. Note: If you do plan to read them all, you need to read them in order because they do run chronologically in time. [...]

    10. Reviewed for Rainbow Gold Reviews. 9.5 out of 10 pots of gold. A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. This is a collection of three stories written by three different authors that revolve around three former foster kids raised at Neverwood. Each story brings something different for the reader to enjoy while continuing an overall story arc involving the rebuilding of Neverwood and someone who wants to stop it from happening.One Door Closes by G.B. Lindsey- This was a great start-of [...]

    11. One Door ClosesOne Door Closes introduces readers to a home in Washington that has served as a home for gay and questioning boys. Audrey gave her boys a place where they could grow comfortably into good men. She gave them the sanctuary they needed to develop into who they wanted to be. As Audrey passes she brings three of her sons back to Neverwood to continue her work.Calvin is the first to return to his childhood home. The home is filled with memories, many he had hoped to forget. He had his f [...]

    12. 4.5 Stars OverallSecrets of Neverwood is a first for me. It’s an anthology of three separate stories by three authors that reads seamlessly, as though it’s a single book, a feat G.B. Lindsey, Diana Copland, and Libby Drew were able to carry off because their writing styles blended smoothly and the characters they featured in their individual stories flowed from one MC to the next without a hiccup in the telling.Three men—Calvin Ware, Danny Redmond, and Devon McCade—aren’t related by bl [...]

    13. One Door Closes (5 stars!)This was quite an enjoyable read for me, especially since I love the “lost love” type stories. And that was really the case with this story. It was also a very emotional read for me as well. We learn a little bit about the three foster brothers who are brought back to Neverwood, but this story itself focused on Calvin and his past/future. One thing that I completely loved about this book was Calvin’s character, and how he had what some would consider a dark past. [...]

    14. I enjoyed all three stories.It seem like I was there cheering them along as each brother found their place at Neverwood.

    15. The three novels in this anthology have a lightly paranormal setting, with differing amounts of ghostly interaction in each book. Overall, it was a very enjoyable read.Three foster brothers come home after inheriting a group home from their foster mom. They each have their problems, dealing with issues within themselves and their relationships. The fact they they were foster kids, gives them insight into how to help the current children that need them. They only need to get past their walls and [...]

    16. First of all – while Secrets of Neverwood can be read as stand-alone, I honestly think that reading all three stories will make the experience better, especially in understanding the characters while uncovering the secrets that Neverwood keeps. Regardless, I really enjoyed this anthology and highly recommend it for readers that like hurt/comfort M/M stories that aren't focused on erotica but the story of the couple.G.B. Lindsey is a new author to me and I absolutely enjoyed my introduction to [...]

    17. This book is phenomenal. Three books in one, it tells the story of three foster brothers who return to their childhood home after their foster mother dies. Though each story focuses on a different brother, and though a different author writes each one, the stories flow perfectly together. Secrets kept in the first book are revealed in the third. I don't think it's necessary to read them in order, however, it definitely adds to the experience. In the first book, Cal is reunited with his childhood [...]

    18. Thanks to Netgalley for this free Ebook! Secrets Of Neverwoodis an anthology of three stories which all seemlessly fit together. They follow three foster brothers who aim to continue what their mother, Audrey did for them by revamping the Neverwood mansion into a safe haven for youths who are having a difficult time. Within these three stories (which I would reccomend reading together rather than separately) there is love, passion, family values andthe supernatural. It was so hard for me to make [...]

    19. 4.5 stars. The Secrets of Neverwood anthology is an outstanding novel about three foster brothers who return to their childhood home after their foster mother Audrey passes away and leaves them her estate. Consisting of three novels written by three different authors, each story focuses on a different brother as they work through their personal issues and find love while struggling to restore the dilapidated mansion so they can continue Audrey's legacy of helping troubled boys.Read my review One [...]

    20. Overall, I really liked this anthology. I liked the premise - three foster brothers coming together to resurrect their foster home and carry on their mother's work. One Door Closes (book 1) was a bit slow to start and was a bit hard to get through. The writing was good but did not capture and keep my interest as much as the other 2 books did. Will's character was underdeveloped which is strange since there was so much detail in the rest of the story.The Groweing Season (book 2) was probably my f [...]

    21. Note to self, this is a DRM EPUB file the I can only read in iBooks. Finished the first book, a little confusing. Kept waiting for something more to happen that never did.The second story I was hoping to like more than I did as I'm a fan and fm the author. I think the stories suffer by being too short. It's hard to develop a good relationship when you don't have the luxury of pages that do so. So, we end up with insta-lust. These are definitely more of your standard romance novels where the main [...]

    22. The Secret is outTh Secrets of Neverwood is a compilation of three stories, One Door Closes; The Growing Season; and The Lost Year. The stories address three foster brothers attempts at finding themselves, a true love, and a family in a home left to them by their mother. If I had to choose a favorite of the three, The Growing Season would be it, but I enjoyed them all and would recommend reading them in sequence. The stories are filled with intrigue, mystery, mayhem, family, and love. perhaps a [...]

    23. A solid 4 stars.I read this for the Rainbow Awards.I had a real issue with One Door Closes. It was such a depressing start for the series of stories. It was definitely a feeling that if I wasn't reading this for Rainbow, I would have abandoned the book. The Growing Season was my favorite, but it was also the most predictable. The Lost Year obviously was written to tie everything together and was a more unusual plot line.I liked the concept and thought the editing rounded out the various writing [...]

    24. Secrets of Neverwood is an anthology linking three stand alone stories through the house and their somewhat shared history. Though each story stands alone and is a complete story, to get the full history and backstory, all 3 stories should be read in order.See the individual stories for their own reviews.Find the Full review at Prism Book Alliance prismbookalliance/?pos

    25. The stand out story for me was Diana Copeland's The Growing Season. I hadn't expected to connect so well with the youngest brother, Danny. But his story really caught me up. Libby Drew's story and the depth of character I've come to expect from her, but was too short. I wanted more!I really liked the concept of this house and the intertwined stories of the brothers.

    26. The first story I kept thinking surely the author will explain what happened between these 2 characters. she didn't. not in acway that brought the main characters together. The entire story feels like one big explanation of the situation the 3 brothers are in, with a hookup at the end. In fact, I am DNFing.
