Vera Neves (Sinfonia dos Livros)
Ora bem, o primeiro que leio da Jude Deveraux e conseguiu cativar-me logo desde o primeiro capítulo. As personagens são-nos apresentadas em duas linhas temporais. Na infância e na fase já mais adulta. Travis e Kim conhecem-se no ano de 1993, quando Kim tinha oito anos e ele tinha doze. Com a sua alegria e energia normais e saudáveis numa criança, Kim ensinou a Travis como ser criança.

This was such a sweet romantic story of being able to get past the outward appearances and into the heart of a person. A lovely read in a wonderful little town called Edilean. It is another story that makes me want to find a place like this of my own. I loved Tristian so I was ready for the deeply romantic gestures of before. But Travis is a man of his own and he had redeeming qualities that made me happy he was able to find what he had been missing. Another great book by Jude Deveraux.

Honestly I am a tiny bit disappointed with this story. I like Travis but I love Tristan. The prologue was nice. The beginning gets better. After few chapters, the reading graph stays still. I like all the characters but not enough to captivate me. Comparing Tristan’s and Travis’s romance, Tristan’s was much much more romantic.

One thing about Miss JD’s books that I like is how she continues with the character from one book to another. I was never confused with the characters. Reading her books m

É um pequeno e rápido romance muito na mesma linha dos anteriores, mas dei por mim a dar mais atenção a este do que me lembro ter dado aos outros. Ri-me com os protagonistas e com alguns personagens secundários, principalmente Joe Layton. Também me emocionei, no final, com o pai de Travis. Realmente, é uma lição para a vida, não ser precipitado em julgar os outros e dar-lhes o devido crédito.

Tras la grata sorpresa que fue “Amanecer a la luz de la luna”, no tenía muy claro que este segundo título de la trilogía fuera a estar a la altura, pero la verdad es que si. Siguiendo la estructura de su predecesor, es un libro sencillo de leer, con una trama un poco más compleja que en el anterior, es más, en este libro hay varias tramas entrecruzadas con la principal, lo que hace que el libro sea un poco más dinámico, pero no por ello pierde su facilidad de lectura.

Um livro ternurento com o brilho único de uma pequena cidade, viragens na vida e a plenitude de uma vida feliz.

Estes estranhos que criam rapidamente um laço e se perdem por muito anos pode parecer demasiado idílico mas é, na verdade, o sonho de um grande amor.

A cidadezinha, o cuidado nos seus trabalhos, a felicidade de viver num local calmo e as viragens na vida fizeram-me lembrar "A Estalagem de Rose Harbor" de Debbie Macomber. Edilean também tem um brilho especial e faz-nos querer saber mais s

I was so excited to receive the "Uncorrected proofs-special advance reader's edition" of this book. Thank you, Goodreads.

This is, indeed, a good read. I'm a romantic at heart and I loved this book.

One quote that spoke to me: "The only sex that matters is if you make the woman you love happy. . . . if the one you love ain't smiling at you over breakfast, you're a failure in the sex department."

Pretty good. I don't know why I find myself skimming pages to move on, but lately more and more I do this in books. I don't know, too much focus on a particular story line, lose interest? Anyway, All in all I enjoyed it and it was a fast read.

Zatím má z celé série ten nejklišoidnější konec, jaký si dokážete představit...taková Esmeralda se může jít klouzat, ale bylo to hezké...Kim se mi jako hrdinka líbila, bylo vidět, že ona prostě žádného rytíře na bílém koni prostě nepotřebuje, i kdyby to měl být bývalý kaskadér Travis..trochu jsem krotila hlavou nad Reedem, ke kterému jsem si ani v druhé knížce, kde už se objevil nenašla cestu, ale tak až z něj bude hlavní hrdina, třeba tomu ďábelskému doktůrkovi konečně propadnu.

Eu sou e serei sempre suspeita no que diz respeito aos romances de Jude Deveraux, porque sou fã incondicional, porque adoro ler romances e gosto muito da forma como a autora me cativa com a sua escrita. São sempre leituras que faço num abrir e fechar de olhos. Sei que quando preciso de um livro para relaxar e sorrir, Jude Deveraux é a escolha certa, nunca desilude.

Ya no sé qué escribir en el review de las novelas de la serie Edilean porque siento que me quedo corta y que soy repetitiva en lo dulces y maravillosas que son. Jude me tiene atrapada con su narración. Las novelas no son complejas y no por eso carecen de un toque de misterio o intriga. Como me ocurrió con las anteriores entregas de esta serie, siento que quiero formar parte de Edilean y no separarme jamás de esos personajes maravillosos que me han acompañado las últimas semanas y me han hecho re ...more

Sou fã de Jude Deveraux e de todas as estórias românticas a volta dos habitantes de Edilean.
As personagens de todos os seus livros estão sempre presentes nas novas estórias oq ue torna a leitura bem interessante, como estivéssemos a relembrar velhos amigos.

I really enjoy Jude Deveraux, she writes these wonderfully complex stories complete with character histories and usually an extensive family. There is so much going on in her stories that a reader just feels right at home. In one of her books, A Knight in Shining Armor (I think) she talks about one of the characters aunt's friend. This friend likes to try on tiaras and run around acting like a princess. Now for those of us who are familiar with that particular series it makes perfect sense. And ...more

This book was a little more than "ok" just because it was a very quick beach read and I found myself amused for a while. I read it in a day ! However, it annoyed the heck out of me on every other page and more often than that towards the end!!

Aside the fact that everything about the town of Edilean and people in it is unbelievable, some things in this book are completely unfathomable! So Kim, who lived in this tiny town and knows everyone since birth, doesn't ever catch a glimpse or even s

Disclosure: I won this book from Goodreads.

This story has mutliple points of views. Nearly each character presents their point of view and the book is written that way. For me, there were too many characters and far too many POV's.

This story begins as pre-teen boy meets younger girl who go their own ways after two weeks but they carry on with their lives remembering each other.

So it begins slightly boring but sweet. Areas rambled a bit unnecessarily but the theory behind the book was enough mot
