Remember the days when reading a romance was all about the romance, and not down-and-dirty, no-holds-barred sex scenes?

This newest book by Jude Deveraux is an enjoyable afternoon of reading. Jocelyn has inherited a lovely old mansion near Williamsburg, and upon arrival meets two men: one that was recommended as Mr. Right, and one that is so obviously wrong. While there are no surprises, reading the book is time well spent. The characters are likable. Lavender Morning is reminiscent of "Sweet Liar", though "Sweet Liar" is the better of the two.

Jude Deveraux's books have always been either hit or miss with me, and this one is a miss. The story line is a good one, but there's no flow to it at all. The ending seemed like it was pulled out of thin air when it was decided there were enough pages. While I plan to read the following books in the series, it is to see what happens to the other ladies and to see if the storylines improve. If someone asked me if I would recommend this book, I'd have to say no - don't waste your time.

This story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me up too late that night and the next day I couldn't wait to jump right back into Jocelyn's life. Absolutely riveting and at no point was it even the least bit boring! I'm not much into the whole Civil War era or Colonial Williamsburg but the author didn't cram any of this down your throat but made it interesting and exciting even. The characters were believable and real and people you would actually like to know.

I instantly loved Luke and disliked Ramsey and his "your mine" attitude (he was overly familiar with Jocelyn and acting as if she was his destiny). I found his demeanor creepy and almost stalkerish. On the other hand Jocelyn had an instant friendship with Luke and camaraderie with his family but was distant and stifled with Ramsey's family. To me that said it all! I saw the ending coming a mile away or should I say 200 pages in but it certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story and the many revelations that were a surprise. I totally loved this book and will be reading Days of Gold in the coming months.
