As You Wish (The Summerhouse #3) Reviews
No. Just no.
First off, through the years I have read many Jude Devereaux books. And I have to admit it has been several years since I read one. This one was an ARC I won through a Goodreads giveaway.
Frankly, I had to work to make myself finish this book. Cardboard stereotypical characters that I didn't care about, stilted dialogue and great chunks of information dumped into the story instead of being woven in. And a premise that wasn't believable to be honest. I know this author can do better.
Summer House and Return to Summerhouse are two of my favorite novels and the plot lines are really my favorite.....love the ability to go back in time for "redos!" This one fell a little bit flat for me. I didn't connect with the characters as much and found Elise a bit simple minded....seriously, the black stallion? It vacillated between a good novel and a cheap romance. However, because this is my favorite type of plot line, I did love the last 1/4 of the book and hope she writes another one!
I think I read this book to fast. I was so excited that I just ran right through it. I'm gonna have to reread, because I was left with questions. however it could just be a set up for future novels. I hope so, because I love the time traveling.
Loved it. Nic gave it to me for my birthday, because he knows I love this time-travel-relive-your-life type of story. It started out as a 3 for me, but it finished as a solid 5 stars. I really got into it, and stayed up way too late for two nights in a row. I liked the characters, and the premise of going back in time intrigues me. If you like that sort of thing, I recommend this book. I liked the writing style, very easy to read, and I will look for more by this author.
Looked forward to this book but so disappointed. Characters were unappealing and unbelievably naive and stupid. Plot was boring and life changes for characters centered mostly on changing men. Ridiculous book,sorry I purchased. Read instead "Lilac Girls" or "The Wife Between Us," both great reads.
This wasn't for me, which was disappointing. I loved the cover; it's beautiful. It was the best thing about this book. Although I did like the premise, I didn't like the story. The premise made this sound like the kind of book I would love, but I didn't. I didn't like the way the story played out. I thought that it should have gone differently. I also didn't like the characters. I expected them to make better decisions and to grow more as characters, but neither happened.
