“Lavender Morning” by Jude Deveraux

“Lavender Morning” by Jude Deveraux
2009, Atria Books
ISBN: 978-0-7434-3720-2

I have two great things I love to do. I eat and I read. Today I almost ate this book. “Lavender Morning” is a huge romantic mystery. I can’t tell you the end because that might spoil the book for you, but I can tell you that you’re not going to be able to put this one down.

At the heart of it is a gentile old woman named Edi and a young girl named Jocelyn. Edi takes Jocelyn under her wing when Joce was about 10 years old. Joce’s family doesn’t pay too much attention to her anyway, so they don’t miss the time she spends with Miss Edi. The love these two have for each other is endearing.

And, then the old woman dies. And, in her will she leaves something of extraordinary value to Joce.

Read this book to see how a lonely and grieving young woman can follow the last wishes of an older woman to find her destiny.

Oh me, oh my! I am a HUGE Jude Deveraux fan-- having read each and every one of her pieces I can get my hands on! This is next on my list, and you are the second person this week to rave about it-- thus, peaking my interest all the more. Sadly, I haven't seen it at our local Books-A-Million or the library. Hoping to fid it at Wal-Mart or Sam's this weekend.

Read it in two days-- during playtime at the park, my toddler's naptime, and right before bed at night. I loved it!! Although,I've yet to find a Jude Deveraux book that I haven't loved... or didn't read in two days or less!!! :~D By the way, I looked at your list of authors. We share several favorites. Except, I did not notice Barbara Delinsky on there. Read any of her stuff?? They're good!
