I ordered this book from someone on amazon and even though I read several reviews I couldn't decided if it were a book I would like, so I bought it. I waited a while before reading it and then one Sunday morning I decided to read it. In the back of my mind I saw the negative reviews and the average rating, but I found myself really getting into it.. I read it all the way through and thought these people on Amazon are crazy this was a wonderful book...THEN I TURNED TO THE VERY LAST PAGE and read the conclusion of the story. I was shocked, angry and finally laughing so hard I peed my pants! I can understand some people's dislike of the ending..but everything up until that point was actually cute, sexy, touching and fun like a lot of romance novels. If you like LaVryle Spencer books this is right up your alley, (the plot is EXTREMELY SIMILAR to Seperate Beds by Spencer without the wacked out ending)but be warned..the ending will leave you wondering, scratching your head and possibly throwing the book across the room or in the trash...HAHAHAHA!
This is one of my favorite Sandra Brown books, and one that I re-read most often, because the love story of Ria and Taylor is so far off the beaten track, you can't help but root for them. One night of passion turns into a committment neither of them could turn their backs on, even when all the odds seem stacked against them. They put up a brave front for the sake of Taylor's voting public, and Ria's family and professional colleagues, and all the while they are falling so deeply in love with one another, you can't imagine an outcome that does'nt have them strolling off into the sunset. Be aware though, they do have their share of ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, but all in all, "Tidings of Great Joy" is a must read for any fan of true romance.
SB is one of my favorite authors. Anticipating her new novel, while reading my way through ALL her other books. Read a teaser for TOGJ at the end of another book and bought the book days later. She's great!

As a great fan of Sandra Brown, I was very disappointed with the ending of this book. In the beginning, the book started out great, but the ending of the book was not what I expected. I hope the next book that I bought won't be disappointing at the end as well.
