When my mom handed me this novel and told me I had to read it, I wasthan a little skeptical Any novel with a title like Wild Orchids had to be pretty lame, right The novel ended up being not at all what I expected I was expecting some romance novel with a main character like Fabio but instead I got a sad writer trying to peace together his life after his wife dies of cancer This novel is a little all over the place since I would classify it as an introspective, mystery, with supernat When my mom handed me this novel and told me I had to read it, I wasthan a little skeptical Any novel with a title like Wild Orchids had to be pretty lame, right The novel ended up being not at all what I expected I was expecting some romance novel with a main character like Fabio but instead I got a sad writer trying to peace together his life after his wife dies o

I love Jude Deveraux She s classified as a romance writer, but this isn t the trashy, Harlequin crap There s always a bit of love in her books, but there s also a heaping pile of story This is one of the most original stories I have ever read I CAN NOT put it down. Great book, it s not very predictable, and Jude is a very good writer who gives good perspective from many different character angles Also, the ending was AMAZING It starts out slow, but once it picks up, you are thrown for a look every which way Such a good book, I recommend
