But her arrival in the small Southern town soon plunges her into a mystery that threatens not only her plans and reputation, but her life . . . and when two eligible bachelors pursue her, Eden is flattered - and more than a little suspicious.

First Impressions is full of romance, suspense and twists and turns!

We meet Eden Palmer who is a single mother and has had a pretty rough life, so when she finds out she’s inherited Farrington Manor, the house she stayed at when she ran from home and gave birth to her daughter, she was nervous, excited, and happy. Some of the best moments of her life happened at Farrington Manor.

When Eden gets to town, she meets Brad, the lawyer in charge of her inheritance, and is instantly attracted to him. She’s on cloud nine when she leaves the office, but soon things change. When she arrives at Farrington Manor she notices someone in her house, and her protective instincts kick in. She beats up the person she finds in her house, which comes to be Jared, the neighbor, who was sent to get close to her.

Soon Eden has two men who are fighting over her and both seem to want something different from her. At first I couldn’t figure out why or how Eden would have anything to do with the case the FBI was working and why Jared was there, but as the story progresses things started to click, and even though Eden didn’t realize why or what she did, everything comes down to people figuring out secrets of Farrington Manor.

Brad at times really grated on my nerves. He was too eager, and too pushy at times. I never fully trusted him, as I thought maybe he had something to do with all the stuff happening to Eden, but even without that suspicion, I couldn’t get on board with her being with Brad. Jared on the other hand… I adored his character. He was tough, rough around the edges, funny, and I fell in love with him. I loved how he went against what he was supposed to do, and told Eden the truth about everything.

Eden and Jared grate on each others nerves and they seem to push each other over and over again. A lot of it was like verbal foreplay, and yet even though they said they hated one another, you could tell there was a definite underlying attraction between these two, that when push came to shove, they wouldn’t be able to ignore.

Brad and Eden on the other hand were kind of boring. He never really took into account what Eden really wanted, and pushed her into things that he thought she would want. I think this is one of the reasons I wasn’t a big fan of his character. Granted, at the end of the book, I didn’t hate him, and came to like him just a little bit, he just wasn’t who I wanted Eden with.

Not only is there the two men vying for Eden’s attention, but there is also the mystery of the jewels, and the people who are after her. So many questions come up in this book and I was never quite sure what everyone was after in regards to Eden and Farrington Manor. There is so much that happens, and I was on pins and needles throughout most of this book. I loved the air of suspense, as well as the mystery in this book.

This was my first Jude Deveraux book, and it definitely will not be my last. I loved how the story flowed, the characters, and the element of suspense twisted into this delightful story.

I have received this book as a member of the XOXperts, XOXO After Dark’s official street team, in exchange for an honest review.
This is a sad repeat of some of Deveraux's older story lines. I have read almost all of her books and some of them are some of my favorites (so much so that I have read them several times - like old friends). But this one? I think someone else called it a" stinker" - and boy were they right. I had to really struggle to get through it, and I already knew how it ended because it was so slow and boring I skipped to the end. I was stunned when I saw that some folks had given this book 5 stars.

Her older books have two kinds of magic - the "magic" of loving the characters so much that you hate it when the book ends and you can't wait until another book comes out in the series and then there's the "magic" that happens with mysterious or supernatural forces that she used to be good at injecting into her books. I think she's lost her touch - I'll be much more careful when purchasing any of her newer books.
I love Jude Deveraux's novels, but this one really disappointed. It seemed like it was written by a different person because the style was so different. This book, and the characters, could have been written in the 1950's. I love books ABOUT the 1950's, but not a book set in today's world with simple characters and a simple writing style. Like when she was talking to a man on the phone whom she (46 years old) had never met. "Eden could hear the smile in his voice. She also heard something else. Was he flirting?" Then before she even meets the man, she meets his grown daughter. "The girl didn't smile. 'How are your teeth?' " "Eden looked down at her hands on her lap. This man's compliments and his open appraisal of her as a woman were making her feel shy." Five minutes after they meet, Eden says, " 'Tell me, Mr. Granville, is your daughter for or against your dating? I couldn't tell by her expression.' He looked at Eden so hard, with so much intention, that she blushed." And he keeps bringing her hand to his mouth to kiss it. I don't know of anybody in today's world who does this. It's like the chemistry between them is all superficial. And the plot was slow. Some people like to read books like this I guess, but I prefer something deeper.
a book about modern day to be written in a modern fashion. Each to his own.
It's too bad that no one - including various reviewers - bothered to mention that the book is a reprint of the original, which was published in 2005. Slap a new cover on it; "forget" to mention the original publication date in the book information, and if any reviewer should happen to mention it, make sure that review finds its way to the bottom of the list, which most people never get to. Should I say repeat sales?
As I started reading the book I thought it was a little boring but then I thought I'm going to wait until I read some more before I judge the book. the more I read the more I just wanted the book to finish. It kept dragging on and on. Too many descriptions of what the characters are thinking and feeling and how they're going about their day. you can always tell what's going to happen next because they describe everything. There was a lot of suspense but It dragged on so much i just wanted it to end. It's not a book I would recommend.
I love the way Jude switched from one era to another in her novels. First Impression is a modern delight.
I gave this book a five rating because it was a good story and I enjoyed the characters and how they grew
This is seriously the best book I have ever read in my life. It has everything you could possibly want in a novel. Love, love, love!!!
