True Love - Jude Deveraux True Love… Man, this is going to be hard. It’s been years since I read a JD novel, and after finally finishing TL, I can sort of recall why I stopped reading them. Is it another case of ‘If you’ve read one of hers, you’ve read them all’ situations? I don’t know if I can recall that far back to her other books that clearly to make a fair comparison. But that’s the problem isn’t it? That they’re forgettable. OK I’m starting to sound mean because maybe there were one or two moments in this that were OK.. but… but I’m struggling to name something truly good about this. I sort of liked the mother in this one, that one misunderstood character… or more apt the one who makes herself purposely misunderstood so that she’s inevitably always the source of drama? I didn’t “love” the two leads though. Her hero worship and his guy reminiscing over decades over to when they were both kids? I found them and their romance strangely… boring. Then when it wasn’t supposed to be boring, well I founded it convoluted… ghostly presences, notwithstanding.So who will like this? JD fans, of course. As well as the for sure die hard fans of the Montgomery’s (and the Taggert’s, too) because, if I recall things correctly, JD had a series of books on those two families (unless I’m confusing her with some other romance author from my past.) 2/5Thank you Net Galley
