Book Review - Moonlight In The Morning by Jude Deveraux

Yes, I'm on a series kick!  What can I say when all my favorite authors have new books in their series out at the same time!  Let it be known I've been in book heaven!

Jude Deveraux's "Edilean" series is a great favorite of mine, and I'm proud and awe-struck that one of my quotes from a previous reviews appears on the covers of her latest books. 

Jude continues the story of the little town of Edilean, Virigina and it's residents with "Moonlight In The Morning," and it's a wonderful tale!

About The Book: (from Goodreads.com)

Sparks are flying between Jecca Layton and Dr. Tristan Aldredge. At the urging of her dear friend Kim, Jecca put the ruthless New York City art world on hold to spend the summer pursuing her passion for painting while enjoying Edilean's tightly knit artistic community. For years, Kim's cousin Tris -- the town's handsome and dedicated doctor -- felt a deep connection to Kim's college "sister" Jecca, though they had met only once before.

Now, Jecca is swept off her feet by this strong, sensitive man in a summer of sensual delights. But when long shadows announce Jecca's return to "real life" and the big city, the lovers must decide: Can they survive the distance? And who will sacrifice the life they've created for themselves to be together?

Welcome back to Edilean - where love reigns supreme and little bits of magic seem to float through the air!

While this book is being heralded as the first in a new series, it is actually about three friends from college who all come together in Edilean. Jecca's friend Kim is actually from Edilean, and Jecca, and eventually their friend Sophie, find their way to this enchanting town.  These young and lively ladies, who are all blessed with artistic talent, are very personable and fun to get to know - and the gentlemen who are attracted to them are sure to be just as personable, as well as kind, loving, handsome ... well, you get the picture!

I love how Jude Deveraux keeps the continuity of the original storyline flowing throughtout all her books, and settling down to read any book in this series is just like visiting with old friends on the front porch with a icy glass of tea.  But, if this is your first trip to Edilean, you can still pick up on the specialness of this series with no problem at all - and I guarantee, you'll find yourself searching out the previous books!

I highly recommend this book! 

I purchased this book for my personal collection.

I haven't read any of Jude Deveraux's books but this sounds like one I'd like. I'll look for it!
