Legend by Jude Deveraux
Start: 3/4/17 End: 3/6/17
Wow this book threw me for a loop. First off I don’t normally read time travel but my book group is reading books featuring time travel this month so I thought I’d start with this book since I’ve read Deveraux before and enjoyed her books. I expected a nice fluffy romance, girl travels to the past, falls in love, decides to never leave. So not the case.
This book was no thought provoking read but it was exactly what I wanted, pure entertainment in the best way. Yes there was one or two plot points you just had to ignore and some insta-love but come on, time travel fated lovers, what do you expect?
From the beginning I enjoyed Kady’s character, I am a sucker for a book about a chef, and of course was pretty wary of Gregory. When we get around to meeting Cole he does seem like a nice man but his problem with telling fibs raked my nerves. In the end I understand his mindset and it makes all the difference.
Once Kady has met and listened to Ruth’s side of the story I was seriously stunned. Staring off into space can’t wrap my brain around it stunned. Never would I have guessed that plot twist but looking back it absolutely fit.
After leaving Ruth with the promise to visit the Jordan descendent in her time Kady returned having spent months in 1800 Legend Colorado only to have a few hours pass by in the present. Much had happened in that little time and it had changed Kady for the better. She had really found her confidence, realized her worth, and thankfully got rid of Gregory.
Kady and C. T. Jordan meeting for the first time was insta-love as to be expected. As cold and calculated as he seemed I liked him overall, unfortunately he does have that Jordan fib telling trait.
On their quest left by Ruth in her will they head to present day Legend, Colorado. After some more time jumping, lots of teasing flirting, and a little hanky panky everyone is where they belong and it’s happily ever after.
I have now found out there is technically a second book but it is a short story and I am working to get my hands on it. It seems to be about Cole and the woman he married. There are a few characters I would like to know what happened too so I hope it at least mentions them.
Overall I found the book to be a fun read and am now scouring more Jude Deveraux books to read.
