I normally don't write reviews unless they are positive. This title did not meet the standard this author usually writes. The storyline was promising. However, it read like the outline of the story vs the end result of a written novel. The hardback price of this title made me irritated. I felt this read like a 1970's Harlequin. Sorry, but it is 2008. Hopefully, things will be better next time out.

I usually enjoy reading Jude Deveraux books, but Secrets is disappointing. It didn't really keep my attention. I also feel that it should have ended differently. I finally made it to the end, and it stopped before all the good stuff. Like Jeff and Cassies wedding and a Cassies reuion with Elsbeth.

I have read most of Ms Deveraux books. This one is very boring. I put it down in the middle of it to read another book. Ms Deveraux should stay with the Velvets or Night in Shining Armor. She is an author I buy just because it is hers. Now I have to be more careful

I've read most of Ms. Deveraux's books. This is not one of her better ones. The whole premise was absurd, and I really found it somewhat boring. She can do a lot better!

I was disappointed in this book. I usually enjoy this author, but fell asleep several times trying to get through this one. It was hard to follow, not very believable and did not come together in the end. I figured this must be a re-release of one of her first books, but I was wrong.

As a twelve years old child Cassie Madden fell in love with kindhearted Jefferson Ames. Although she moaned being born too late, as he is older than her, she still wanted to be near him as often as possible.------------ Years later at college Cassie knows that in spite of being engaged to someone else, she still loves Jefferson, who is a widower raising his daughter five years old Elsbeth. She ends her engagement and travels to Williamsburg, Virginia where her Jeff lives with his offspring. She becomes Elsbeth¿s nanny. Meanwhile Jefferson, his friends and his father enjoy the antics of elderly eccentric movie-actress Althea Fairmont who lives nearby. Althea arranges a special performance of a real unsolved murder mystery with Cassie and Jeff starring in the lead roles her goal is to see if anyone can uncover the truth while Jeff begins to fall in love with Cassie who never stopped living him ---------------- The romance is well written as the lead characters are a fine pairing once Jeff no longer considers Cassie as a younger sister. However, the tale belongs to the mystery as seemingly everyone conceals SECRETS with every revelation the plot twists and keeps twisting. Readers will enjoy this engaging romantic whodunit as the support cast will keep the audience wondering what secret Jude Deveraux will reveal next.------- Harriet Klausner

Although a little different from her other works, it does not disappoint.

I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a good love story with romance and intrigue. Not too predictable. It was hard to put down. A nice finish. Jude fans will like it.

Read like a rough draft. Plot ( if you can call it that) jumped all over the place leaving huge gaps and details that did not add up. Worst Deveraux book I have ever purchased.

Although this is the first book I have ever read by Jude Deveraux, I have seen her name all over book sites and the web for some time. I was under the impression that she was just a good romance author, and so when I picked up the book, I figured that was what I would be reading. Something light and nice with a basic romance plot. Nothing could be further from the truth! I now understand why this author is a best-selling novelist. She is so much more than a typical romance novelist. She is a master as romantic suspense writing, and I was completely engrossed in this book. There was so much I appreciated about this novel. It had a strong romantic story--which was what I was initially looking for. In addition to this, she added a fantastically suspenseful plot with lots of twists and turns. I remember thinking halfway through that I was not even assured what would happen at the end! Would it even end how I thought it should? I would certainly put Jude Deveraux in the same category as Agatha Christie, and that is saying something. I found myself not wanting to put this book down once a chapter finished because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. There was never a dull moment in this book, and the writing was dynamic! The other thing I appreciated about this book was the absence of steamy sex scenes. While sex was mentioned as having happened, it was not described in detail. I also appreciated the absence of vulgar language. There was an occasional mild word, but nothing that was truly horrendous. This author has easily become one of my favorite romance novelists, and I can hardly wait to read more of her books. I now know why she is considered one of the greats!

Contemporary romance is a hard sell for me, but being my favorite author, I was compelled to read this when it was first published and found myself riveted to the characters and the unraveling of the secrets kept me from being able to put it down until the end.

Usually I like Jude Deveraux books. However, I have read three of her books in a row and have been extremely disappointed. This was another disappointment. The story was silly and unbelievable. You want to read some of her best works, read the Velvet series or Knight in Shining Armor. Her latest group of books is making me change my mind about what I buy of hers from now on. Save money and check her books out at the library. These last few have not been worth the money.

Once in awhile this author writes a rather odd story and this is one of them. It started out promising but became complex and difficult to follow. By the last six or so chapters, I just wanted to get through it, I should have stopped sooner it was a waste of reading time. Maybe the next one hopefully is much better.
