3.0 out of 5 starsThis is not a stand alone book
Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2020
Yesterday I finished the book, except it wasn't done. I appreciate characters that continue to evolve and appear again- similar to the Medlar series. What I don't like is reading a book that just stops without resolution. It felt as if Jude Deveraux wrote the entire book but published the first half only. The stop was abrupt and the book itself didn't have a single storyline that wrapped up. Felt like a money grab. For $9.99, I expect a full story.

I liked the premise, the characters and the plot device, but this book is essentially the first part of a book. I probably will not remember all of the relevant details and minor characters when the next book in the series is published, but I will remember how irritated I felt when I got to the end of this book. I felt like I was strung along only to find that there was no resolution/conclusion, and that I should pay more money to buy the subsequent volume(s?) so that I can read the conclusion.

I love Jude Deveraux, but not this book. I didn't find the characters or plot interesting; angels & time travel. Just not what I'm used to from her and, worse, it doesn't end in this book; you have to buy the next one to find out what happens. I don't care enough about the characters or storyline to buy anymore books in this series.
I found this storyline moderately interesting, but was stunned that the book ended abruptly without any resolution of the plot line. I have read many Jude Devereaux books and always enjoyed them, and this is the first time I have noticed an additional author. What? is Jude not writing her own books anymore? And to pay $9.95 for a book without an end is, frankly, beneath the dignity of Ms. Deveraux. If she wants to continue the characters in a subsequent book, I understand and appreciate that. But to leave the story unfinished so readers end up spending almost $20 for a Kindle book in order to find out what happened is less than honorable. I would call it a money grab.

Not sure how to review this novel. I guess I was hoping something more from this author. The premise should have been interesting, however I found it hard to stay with the novel. Something seems flat. I could not get into the story line. Not sure about purchasing the next novel in this series.

I was disappointed in this book by one of my favorite authors. I did like her book "knight in shinning armor" which is a similar story but this one was not as interesting. I was disappointed especially in the ending.

It is very obvious jude deveraux Did not write this book it has a co-author but it feels more like the co-author did the writing. This is the first of her books I have been able to put down after I started it before I got through. I guess it’s time to stop buying her books.
5.0 out of 5 starsNot so bad, stop being so tightfisted with your money spent

i'am a madly huge fan of Jude Deveraux, i nearly cry with joy when i receive one of her books, and i would be ready to pay double for each of them, reading is so much better than anything else you can do for relaxing - (although this particular author is a definite career-breaker and marriage unbalancer- as I spend so many nights reading her and barely standing on semi automatism in the morning), and OK, this book is different, much slower, i liked it, so i could put it down, and the details were a bit more down to earth which is funny when you don't live in USA, and I was reaching the end of the book, wondering how it could possibly end in so few pages left... I am not disappointed, I love sequels, I loved Liam and the angels, I just wish someone would correct the silly assumption that one week or even one month of roommate rent makes a difference in buying a real House! (sorry Miss D.)
