    One thought on “First Impressions”

    1. First Impressions by Jude Deveraux is a light read I did not really become engaged with the characters and thought much of the plot unrealistic 2.5 stars

    2. This was my first Jude Deveraux book and to be honest it will probably be my last I only finished because I was reading it for a challenge Put it down numerous times and really had to make myself pick it up again to continue reading This will be going straight into the box for the second hand bookstore.

    3. It was a fun and quick beach read, which I really needed between some of the bigger books that I had been reading.The relationship between Eden and Braddon was really odd to me I couldn t figure out what she really saw in him beyond him being the stereotypical idea of having a perfect little life in the traditional town It didn t seem to make sense compared to how Eden was described during the rest of her life.The mother daughter relationship was one of the very interesting parts of the book, bu [...]

    4. This miserable book started out with 32 pages of exposition, setting up a ludicrous situation with two dimensional characters, served with steaming piles of clich It only got worse in the second chapter I gave this my minimum 50 pages and DNF d on page 56 upon reading this from the main love interest s POV The women he liked were very understanding and tolerant of what he did for a living, but none of them were cooks It seemed to be a law of life that women who took their clothes off for a livin [...]

    5. I had a hard time getting through this book There wasn t anything about it that made me want to keep reading it I did because I was curious about the mystery, but other than that it was pretty weak Not one that I would read again, and makes me question whether or not I would want to read another book by Deveraux.

    6. This Book had so much potential cause the story wasn t boring but it was a miss Liked Eden and even understood some of her worries behavior concerning her son inlaw and daughter, even finding herself suddenly wooed by two good looking eligible bachelors was entertaining But forgiving or ignoring nullify the basic need to seek justice knowing full well who raped her and where to find him wasn t logical taking into consideration that were r now talking about a grown woman, that has seen and lived [...]

    7. A little romantic escapism set in a fictional North CArolina town I did like the bits about gardening Little to recommend it otherwise, IMHO.From the PublisherA contemporary novel of romance and renewal from perennial bestseller Jude Deveraux, First Impressions is an emotionally charged story of one woman s bid to start over.Eden Palmer knows how to make it on her own This forty five year old single mother has worked hard to raise her beloved daughter Melissa, Eden s daughter, has long been the [...]

    8. I love her characters I liked the twists and turns in this book I couldn t predict the end But I am glad the one I liked won the girl in the end I also liked the older character drawing on the experience to make the life changing decisions we all run into on a regular basis.

    9. I read it, and it was okay I or less liked the story, but the woman droned on and on and it took a lot of energy not to skip sections of self analysis I wasn t a fan of the ending chapters where she chooses between the two men, and it s not clear why she picked one over the other Maybe I missed a lot in her eternal rantings about herself Meh If you happen to like romantic mysteries, this would be okay to read.This was my second read of this author, the first one being Ever After, which sucked b [...]

    10. Upon finishing this, I read the review on the back cover which mentioned the surprise ending I wracked my brain for at least ten minutes trying to think what the surprise ending was After all, I had just READ the ending While nothing was a surprise, the ending did seem rather sudden and forced That said, I hate comparing an author to herself, rather than to other authors, but this just did not feel like a Jude Deveraux book I had to make myself keep reading to the end.Also, there were mistakes i [...]

    11. This was an ok book how ever I do wish the author had done to make it interesting I look forward to reading of this author s work.

    12. AmazingThis is seriously the best book I have ever read in my life It has everything you could possibly want in a novel Love, love, love

    13. Deveraux always deliversI love the way Jude switched from one era to another in her novels First Impression is a modern delight.

    14. Another great book by Jude Deveraux I couldn t put it down I love books when I can t predict the mystery and it has a surprise ending.

    15. I like that the main characters are middle aged, and I like that it s a romance book about a woman with a grown daughter finding love, but the story dragged for me, and it was hard to finish,

    16. First Impressions is full of romance, suspense and twists and turns We meet Eden Palmer who is a single mother and has had a pretty rough life, so when she finds out she s inherited Farrington Manor, the house she stayed at when she ran from home and gave birth to her daughter, she was nervous, excited, and happy Some of the best moments of her life happened at Farrington Manor.When Eden gets to town, she meets Brad, the lawyer in charge of her inheritance, and is instantly attracted to him She [...]

    17. I have not read any of Jude Deveraux before However, it is an adorable book which I enjoyed reading it The book is quite entertaining and very intriguing romance mystery diversions My first impression was this would be like any other typical contemporary novels And yes, it is.The setting is nice I always love places with a good history which is so much to be told South Carolina seems to be one It fulls of this founding family members, old houses, 18th century garden landscape Wow I ve learned so [...]

    18. From time to time, you need a change of pace change things up as it were For me that involves exploring new to me authors and books that I might not normally read First Impressions from Jude Deveraux is just that kind of book Though I tend to like my books with a little heat I had to remember that I was going for different here This is a book that I can easily share with my mother without any worry of getting scolded afterwards Because you are never too old Anyway First Impressions It was an en [...]

    20. This book was a nice escape from reality even though it took me forever to finish it longer than it should have for a 340 page book with large font.In some parts, I thought it was great In other instances, especially regarding dialogue, it read like a novel I would have written when I was 15 especially in the interactions between Eden and Jared It was so amateur Do people in the south talk the way these two do because no one I know does I was still left a little confused about what happened at t [...]

    21. I think that if you like southern writers, mystery, bad boys and romance, you will love this book.Eden was once a scared teenager, victim of rape and pregnant with the outcome, she s kicked out of her pious holier than thou family and escapes to Arundel NC, where she finds a substitute mother in the grande dame tradition who hires her to catalogue the family papers As she does this, and helps Mrs Farrington hide the tangible pieces of her life, she takes the psychic pieces and escapes when the o [...]
