I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to! I really loved the characters, especially Mike. Sara annoyed me a tad at the beginning but as she grew some balls and started standing up for herself, I grew to quite like her. The plot constantly kept me guessing and had so many twists that I really didn't see coming which kept me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. And I loved how it all came together for the perfect ending!
Author Jude Deveraux is the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of thirty-eight books. There are more than sixty million of her books in print worldwide. Other titles include: Days of Gold, Lavender Morning, Return to Summerhouse, and Secrets. She resides in North Carolina with her family. This book is part of the EDILEAN SERIES, though can be read as a stand alone novel. In the quaint little town of Edilean, Virginia, Sara Shaw is making wedding plans, much to the distress of her family and frien [...]
Maybe I read this book at the wrong time and wrong place. I didn’t enjoy it very much. It’s a romantic mystery kind of book but I didn’t actually capture the romance and the mystery… like I said, my timing must be off somehow. I never felt disappointed reading JD’s book and it seems that there’s always a first time for everything. For the romance part, I think Sara is so unsure of her feeling that she can simply move from one guy to another without much hesitation. As for the mystery [...]
This was, quite possibly, the worst book I have ever read. The main woman, Sara, is a weak woman who lets her fiance tell her what to do and then he disappears, she is still insanely loyal and thinks there's a good reason he up and left in the middle of the night not telling her where he's going. By the end of the book she is some super smart catch a criminal genius. Give me a break.Main guy, Mike, Comes through a tunnel into his sisters appt. and scares Sara who is staying thereReally a tunnelH [...]
Jude Deveraux cria narrativas envolventes, simples e que me prendem quase desde as primeiras páginas. Este é o terceiro da série Edilean e a ação passasse no presente. Assim, ficamos a conhecer Sara, uma jovem considerada por todos como alguém muito bondoso, mas que não tem sorte nos "amores" que lhe saem em sorte.Na minha opinião, as coisas em torno de Sara e o Mike aconteceram de uma forma demasiado instantânea. Porém acho que é um casal que funciona e transmitiram-me química.Em te [...]
I don't know why I'm in the minority on this entire series but I really like it. I love the characters (the main characters and all the supporting characters too). They are all just quirky and fun to hang around with. In this one I particularly liked Mike though I admit that Sarah was a little TSTL in the beginning. I can never figure out why smart women do stupid things or allow men to force them to do stupid things. Her entire relationship with Greg Anders made absolutely no sense. Anyway, I l [...]
it gets even worseybe my taste was different back then, maybe I enjoyed cheesy romantic books OH WHO AM I KIDDING THIS IS BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!I can't believe Jude decided to make this shit of a book a part of this amazing series. I refuse to acknowledge it as a part Edilean. I wish I could tell you what's wrong with this book but I'd rather study and ready cheesy 2000's shojo mangas than do that. Three years later and I'm still upset.
I could accept the characters' individualquirkiness. I even almost made excuses for them actually: Mike can be an asshole because he doesn't have much experience being genuine with people. But you know, with that kind of background, I think it would be even better if he was really a bastard, at least he could earn his redemption in the end, and not just suddenly turn into this likeable person who really just charms his way around because it's part of being undercover. Sarah, on the other hand, i [...]
This will be a short and sweet review as I did not finish this one. The premise of a undercover cop sent to protect a woman who was unknowing marrying a con artist intent on getting something from her she didn’t even know she had was a great one. It intrigued me. I eagerly got to this one because I had never read a Jude Deveraux book. After the first few chapters I had a hunch this one wasn’t for me. It dragged entirely way too much. Sara was supposed to be this innocent, home grown woman.d [...]
💓🌺Kitap kesinlikle muhteşemdi😍Benim için bu yılın favorilerinden oldu. Her karakteri, her sayfası ile çok güzeldi. 1,5 gün gibi bir süreyle bitirdim. Ele alınca bırakılmayacak okudukça okuyasımın geldiği bir kitap oldu.❤Gizli görevlerin aranan ismi Mike, başkomserinin verdiği görevle çocukluğundan itibaren ismini hep duyduğu, nefret ettiği kasabaya gitmek zorunda kalır. Büyük dolandırıcı Mitzi ve kasaba da Greg diye bilinen oğlu Stefan'ın peşine düşe [...]
De los tres libros que he leído de esta serie para mi es el peor, no se si sea culpa mía pero no me llegó, no me lo creo al leerlo, no consigo que me atrape, la historia es buena pero a pesar de eso me faltó feeling con este libro.
My review:Scarlet Nights by Jude Deveraux was one of the books I won from another book blogger’s giveaway. I didn’t know what to expect, only the information I saw on the back side of the book and it caught my eye. I read it during my July vacation and enjoyed it incredibly. Scarlet Nights is a part of Edilean series, it is book 3, but it is standalone book, so I did not even get the feelings that there was some information missing. I read this book in one sitting almost; I just had to get c [...]
Have I said how much I love Jude Deveraux? Scarlet Nights is another fantastic read by Jude that continues the lives of the tight knit folks of Edilean Virgina. Edilean is a tiny little town tucked away on the outskirts of Williamsburg that was founded by a native Scotsman and named for the woman he loved. The inhabitants of Edilean are descendants of the founding families of the town, and while they are welcoming and tolerant of outsiders, they take pride in taking care of and protecting their [...]
Desde que iniciei a leitura desta saga que toda a historia de Edilean me fascina. Há um ambiente muito especial à volta da pequena cidade da Virgínia, algo que transpira dos seus personagens e que se vai entranhando no leitor.Até ao momento, tenho a dizer que este é o meu livro preferido, toda a história é magnífica e deixa-nos a sonhar e a desejar encontrar o nosso próprio Mike Newland. Ele tem uma personalidade forte, justa e mostra-se também muito divertido, acabando por ser o par p [...]
After Days of Gold Edilean 2, I wasn't certain if I wanted to return to Jude Deveraux's little town in Virginia or not. That book disappointed me greatly in its return to the style of writing Deveraux uses in her colonial America novels.Thankfully, Scarlet Nights had more in common with Deveraux's recent titles and was a good, fun read. This book could be read as a sequel to the first book in the Edliean series, Lavender Morning Edilean 1, but prior knowledge of the first book isn't all that nec [...]
Scarlet Nights #3 of the Edilean series is a branch off the original family of Edilean, Virginia. Sara Shaw is engaged to a man, Greg Anders, who suddenly shows up in Edilean and sweeps her off her feet. No one within the little community finds anything attractive about the man.Tess who marries Ramsey from book 1 Lavender Morning, and is on Honeymoon in Europe, when she receives a call from her big brother Mike. Mike is an undercover detective and is on the lead of a huge case that happens to in [...]
Apesar de não ter lido o livro "Jardim de Alfazema" resolvi dar uma oportunidade a este, em grande parte devido à sinopse que me despertou de imediato a curiosidade.Talvez por este livro ter sido lido de rajada (em 2 tardes) e pelos pormenores estarem tão frescos enquanto desfolhava o livro, achei-o uma absoluta delícia. Mesmo muito bom dentro deste género de romances.A escrita desta autora pode-se traduzir como sendo equilibrada. Muitos autores querm conjugar romance com suspense e mistér [...]
Que hei-de dizer? Foi um livro delicioso, que não queria parar de ler. Adorei seguir novamente as personagens de Edilean, se bem que o enredo se centra muito nos protagonistas.É um romance, com um bocadinho de mistério e crime, que adoça a leitura, se bem que o romance surgiu muito rapidamente achei um pouco apressado. E parece-me que a escritora gostou de os colocar a fornicar como coelhos, desculpem a expressão mas foi isso que eles fizeram a certa altura do livro.Foi um prazer conhecer m [...]
I loved Sara from the first moment Joce met her under the tree the day she arrived in Edilean. And when she started going out with Greg, she was still adorable despite all that Greg has done.But I do not connect to her in her own story. Nothing interesting, just an ordinary heroin. Maybe it was too rushed. And I don't feel her supposedly great attraction to Mike that should be her reason to switch her love almost instantly. I was almost forget the timeline. It should be a few months passed in be [...]
Cartea este scrisă foarte simplu și într-un stil fluidizat, citindu-se destul de rapid. Umorul nu lipsește din ecuație, având momente când mă trezeam râzând în hohote.O lectură despre unitate, despre legăturile strânse între membrii familiei, despre dragoste în aproape toate formele ei. O lectură despre viață, despre secrete care nu pot fi ținute, oricât de mult ți-ai dori ca alții să nu știe. O lectură despre sprijinul comunității care, deși e foarte curioasă din f [...]
From the moment Mike came up through the floor, I was hooked. I loved the dialog between the two and the hot and heavy flirting kept me turning the pages. I have two words to describe their first love-making scene – IMMEDIATE REREAD! All that pent up energy finally released —somebody hand me some ice!And the suspense? I hated to figure it out because I didn’t want it to end. I wanted to be there and see Mike in person. If I ever ran across a man like him- well the first thing I’d need to [...]
I am a Jude Deveraux fan through and through, and I don't think that I've ever read one of her books that I didn't like, and this one is no different.I love that she always tells a great story as well as gives us romance novel lovers the other stuff that we like so much too! Small Town Edilean girl, Sara Shaw is wrapped up in a criminal family and has no idea what she is in for. Good looking, courageous, and sexy Mike gets sent in by the FBI and police department to figure out what's going on an [...]
I'm a great fan of Jude Deveraux's historical romances but I just haven't found her contemporaries to my taste. Too much about the story didn't make sense to me. The hero is undercover and has no problem blabbing why he's there. The people he works for burned down his apartment so his story will hold up. The heroine was, sad to say, stupid, in my opinion. There were other issues but I don't want to give spoilers. Anyway, my mom liked it but I really didn't.
Gostei! Mas não lhe consigo dar mais do que 3 estrelas. Este é o primeiro livro que leio da autora. Achei o romance bonito, e o mistério interessante, no entanto penso que a certo ponto a história enrrolou um bocado, descrevendo sempre as mesmas rotinas diárias das personagens, sem aquecer nem arrefecer nada. A resolução do mistério pareceu-me a mim um pouco confusa também. Mas gostei e pretendo ler mais livros da autora.
This is the third book in this great series I simply adore! This one I just couldn't put down! One great thing that I love is how the author writes one book back in 1700's and one nowadays and with each book moves back and forth. The characters are so well imagined that I wouldn't change anything.Scarlet nights just have that charm and that something that will capture you till the end.I'm a Jude Deveraux's big fan and each of her books I read goes right in my favourites! Love them all!
I liked Lavender Morning much more than Scarlet Nights. I felt like Ms. Deveraux hurried through this book in her Edilean series and didn't develop the story as well. It was a quick read, though, if you're looking for an easy read.
The mystery was entertaining but that was about it.It is boring to read about woe is me perfect little virginal Sara and how everyone in town was just so mean to her because she was so perfect! And Mike was so perfect too! The best at everything! Blech.
Ben bu seeriyi daha önce neden okumamışım ki.Beklediğimden çok daha iyiydi.Yeni kitabı da haftaya çıkıyor alıp hemen okumak lazım.
I enjoyed it very much
Fun love story with a bit of humor and suspense. I couldn't put it down.
