Overview

In one reckless night, Camille Jameson's life was changed forever: a tall, handsome stranger, an evening of romance — and enough regrets to last a lifetime. Two years later, Camille is a successful interior decorator with the opportunity to restore one of Mississippi's proudest plantations. She arrives excited and eager to face her greatest professional challenge to date — until Zack Prescott saunters through the mansion's front door and back into her life. He is exactly as she remembers, except for the knowing look in his eyes that reminds her of what they once shared. Now, forced to live in unbearably close quarters, Camille and Zack will discover if they have the courage to face the past — and, perhaps, build a future together . . .

Waited months for new books. Now some have been moved to December and the couple that were released were less than 200 pages and in my opinion weren't near as good as others I have read. Very disappiinted Sandra Brown.

*I was given a complimentary copy of Love's Encore for an honest review. Love’s Encore is a second chance romance. Camille Jameson owns her own decorating business with her mother. Commissioned by the Rayburn Prescott, she gets the chance to renovate a Louisiana plantation house. Little does she know that the estate she will be working on is home to the one guy that she really loved…then ran from! Why Camille? He was totally into you! Camille see Zack Prescott again, sparks fly, and then they proceed with the “I love you, I hate you” dance we all love in these type of romances. I love the majority of the characters in this book. Rayburn Prescott is very charming and wonderful. His love for Zach and his late wife are endearing. The house staff Dearly Beloved (the back story to this name is cute) and Simon Mitchell are great, too. Unfortunately it’s Camille and Zach that are the most frustrating. Zach’s character bugs me. He has very poor communication skills and is overly grouchy. I feel we don’t get enough of a back story as to why he is the way his is. And some of his behavior toward Camille is infuriating! Camille’s character lacks a self esteem. I would think she would have more self confidence considering she owns her own businesses. But when it comes to Zach, she seems to put up with his terrible behavior and not engage her back bone. The sex scenes in the book are pretty modest considering our modern day romances. I actually enjoyed the word play to describe Camille and Zach during the steamy situations. And Sandra does a great job of building the chemistry between the two. The plot twist and the ending of Love’s Encore did not make me happy. I felt the plot twist was out of the blue and a bit unfeasible. And the ending really made me mad! We see this poor guy go through all of this plotting and conniving to get Camille and Zach together and we don’t get the full HEA with babies? You owe this to Rayburn Prescott, Sandra Brown! He needs to see his grandchildren running around on his plantation! Geeze! hahahaha Love’s Encore is an okay book. I cannot complain about the writing. Sandra’s writing is stellar. She transports you back into the 1980s and you feel like you’re sitting in your fresh from the cleaners creased Gloria Vanderbilt jeans and silk long-sleeved blouse with a slim gold belt while a guy who looks just like Tom Selleck woos you with a steak dinner! My problem is the plot and the main characters need more development. And I just can’t with the ending. I give Love’s Encore 3 out of 5 stars. Written by Dee McGee - Booze, Bookz, and Bad Boyz

I read this book a long time ago and felt it was worth a re-read. I had forgotten how silly our heroine could be and what a jerk the hero was. It’s amazing how a person’s taste in literature changes – what I thought was amusing back then, I now found tedious.

I have read a lot of Sandra Brown books and loved everyone I always feel like it's a guarantee great read but this book just didn't work for me. It moved to fast and left out too many details. I had a hard time figuring out what time period the book was in. One minute I'm thinking present time than the next decades earlier and even after that maybe the 18th century. Really I just found no flow to this book.
