Granted, you have to be able to look past a few things.
You have to be able to look past the stereotypical perfection of these characters. Get past the fact that Travis just HAPPENS to have a Stanford degree and a degree from Harvard Law, and is filthy rich AND has expertise in various martial arts disciplines AND used to be a Hollywood stuntman. You have to be able to get past the fact that Kim has known what she wanted to be in life since she was 8, and has had no detours in making her dreams happen, and just when she thinks she won't meet a man who isn't threatened by her success, she meets Travis -- ube-Rich martial arts expert/Ivy League lawyer. You have to be able to get past how perfectly masculine he is, even when he "softly" declares his love, and how perfect and feminine she is, even when she is wearing no makeup and barefoot. And you have to be able to get past the fact that there are three plots here that are not well integrated.
But, if you can do all that, and still enjoy that feeling of spying in while two people fall in love, ENJOY IT! This Edilean series has been my guilty little pleasure since I read the first one, Lavender Morning, on a flight home. It was cute, so I have been reading them all as they come out. I'll read the next one too. Sometimes, I just need to read a love story, curled up with a bowl of popcorn!
Since most people just scan the reviews, I wanted that to be the first thing that anyone noticed because it's the most important. Now on to the good stuff.....
Stranger in the Moonlight is a pleasant story about Kimberly and Travis. They meet in "quaint" Edilean, Virginia when they are children. Their experiences together eventually end up shaping who they become as adults. Travis mysteriously leaves and causes Kim to always wonder about him. Many years later, Travis finds himself back in Edilean to help his mother but also back in love with Kim. What follows is a sweet romance that leaves the reader smiling for hours.
I'm a huge fan of all of Jude's books. I've read all of them and anxiously wait for the next one. At first I felt skeptical of the Edilean series. I had grown to love the Montgomery's and Taggert's and didn't want to leave them. She has, of course, won me over with this wonderful little town. I don't know why I ever doubted it. The feeling of "home" is definitely present in all the books in this series. The warmth she seems to create with this town envelops the reader. If you are a fan that was skeptical as well, give it a chance. It's worth it.
I have always admired the characters that Jude creates. There is exceptional character development and at the end of the book you know the people inside and out. It creates a connection that is missing in so many books today. Her characters are STRONG. I think this is what I like the most. Her male AND female characters are strong, intelligent, interesting people that are capable of overcoming any challenge. They have unique interests and most of all, a passion for them.Read more ›
This is a story where a boy meets a girl, they spend a week or a summer together and then go their seperate ways. The boy is about 14, the girl around 8. FAST FORWARD TO ADULTHOOD - each remember the other as adults and imagine they might have been in love. There is no in between story - no growing up without the other and yearning.. no nothing like that. Just simply FAST FORWARD.
There were a lot of areas that simply rambled on without any real meaning or point to them.
You may think this will be a good book, after all, imagine the scenario right? They come together again after all those years.. well, it just doesn't really happen like that. If you blink you will miss them getting back together.. the rest of the blook is blah blah blah blah.. well, pointless jabbering.
This book not only fell short, it fell off a 6000 ft high cliff!
This book lacks passion, romance, sizzle.. ANYTHING worth reading! You don't even get a good feel for the main characters or what they think, how they feel.. nothing!
Aside from all of that there are even more issues! The book goes on non-stop about how the main characters father has kept his mother prisoner in a loveless marriage yadda yadda.. and how the main charcter will stop at nothing to see his mom get the divorce she wants. And hundreds of pages later - the moms new 'boyfriend/lover' calls the husband on the phone asking for the divorce and the father agreed with no hesitation, no effort at all! That was IT! So this and all the other 'issue's' in the book? NOT EVEN AN ISSUE!
I felt SO CHEATED of my time after reading this I can't even begin to tell you! WHAT A WASTE!Read more ›
