Contrived and Awful!

by jjares on Jun 23, 2013

This is my first book by Jude Deveraux and frankly, I wasn?t impressed. The only ?real? characters seemed to be the ones who were deceased! The whole story line seemed contrived and odd (I love odd stories, but this gives odd a bad name). There?s a love triangle ? that isn?t. It seems more like cousins? competition over a new toy. Characters disappear for long periods so the remaining twosome can have some quality time together. There are MAJOR secrets that most of the characters keep hidden from the heroine. I had little empathy for (on interest in) the heroine. The plotting was off; there were stretches when nothing happened, there were no insights, and no one changed. The book seemed to drift until nearly the end ? and everything happened at once. I could not believe this author has been published since 1980. The ending (relationships revealed) was beyond the pale; I couldn?t believe I spent so much time on such tripe. The book earned two stars for keeping me reading to the end -- long after I wanted to toss the book at a wall.
