Reviews Blue Midnight (Blue Mountain #1)

  • Julie
    Blue Midnight by Tess Thompson is 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This novel had me from the the first page. I thought this book was in the Women's Fiction category andit starts off with that kind of format, but it keeps changing as you continue reading. Blythe is in her mid forties, divorced, has two young daughters, and is trying to get her life back in order and discover what path she will...

    While the writing was okay, the characters were cardboard. No reality here folks, keep walking.

    I enjoyed his book. Thompson is a wonderful writer. There were some laugh out loud moments and some very tender moments which choked me up. That being said, it was not my favorite book by this author. Not because it wasn't a great book, but because I have a problem personally with the whole love at first sight and soulmate thing. The plausibility of someone suddenly alone in life driving several states away to try and find an old boyfriend she kn...

    Not often do I read a book that makes me gush and want to run out to tell all my friends about it, but Blue Midnight is one of them!I had a very different review written, but it didn't convey how very quickly this book grabbed hold of me and didn't let go, even after the last page. So okay, I'm officially gushing and fangirling even though I'm a greying grandma!Disappointment, love, heartbreak, suspense, family drama, mystery and even some kookin...

    This is the 6th book I have read by this amazing author this summer, and as expected I LOVED this book. Thompson has such an amazing way with words. She pulls you immediately into the story and there you stay, long after the last page is turned. Which is a good thing because sometimes you meet these old friends again in other stories. This was new series, with all new characters, but just the simple fact that Blythe and Bliss grew up in River Val...

    Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ebook was provided by Booktrope in exchange for an honest review.There are a number of twists in the story, and I don't want to spoil the reading experience of those who, like me, are only coming across this book now. I will say, though, that the story is as much about family as it is about Blythe's journey of self-discovery and love. There's a mystery within the Flanigan family that...

    Gah. I had the hardest time picking stars. I think it's ultimately 3.75, so i rounded up. So, full disclosure, I'm more forgiving of books where the heroine is a recently divorced middle aged woman who has lost herself and trying to find herself again. It resonates. We are not the most logical/rational of creatures. So lots of forgiveness. In this book, Blythe is 45 and dealing with the 3 week absence of her little girls while they are with their...
  • Sarah Nickles
    This is the first book I have read by Tess Thompson and I love love love it. Tess creates characters that you can relate to which pulls you in from the beginning. Her writing flows wonderfully and she definitely keeps your attention. Blythe gave her all to her marriage but after 13 years her husband leaves her and a younger women. She is left devastated and lost. Wondering what she is going to do now. While packing her belongings after the divorc...

    *I received a copy of this book for an honest review*Tess is a highly skilled author who is proficient in all aspects of writing. I have it in my mind that when Tess wrote Blue Midnight she was standing over her computer like a Chef over a stove, formulating the perfect recipe; A dollop of mystery, a pinch of paranormal, a dash sensuality, a teaspoon of humor, and a whole lot of love. I had a hard time being drawn into the story at first, it move...

    Tess Thompson is definitely one of my auto-buy authors! I love her writing style. Her characters are so real to life that you just can't put the book down once you start! I'm excited to see that this book is the beginning of a series. I can't wait to see which brother gets their story next. Or will it be a sister? I know, whoever it is, I will rush to get it as soon as it's out. Blue Midnight makes you believe in second chances. It makes you beli...
  • Lisa Filipe
    Just finished...ahh...and I have to say...what a lovely novel from Tess Thompson. I got a wonderful romance with just a hint of mystery to keep me turning pages. Perfect for my followers who are fans of Contemporary Women's Fiction, since the book is light on the "bedroom activity", but so much fun watching Blythe and Kevan fall in love...was magical!As someone who watched my divorced father find love a second time around, I truly felt for Blythe...
  • Samantha March
    I received a review copy. I say this with each and every Tess Thompson novel, but her latest offering is my favorite. I’m a huge fan of the magical element, that realm of maybe not everything is what it seems, and Blue Midnight captured my attention from the very beginning. Though I might not have much in common with Blythe or her journey, the lyrical writing and smooth flow of the story kept me right beside her on her travels to Peregrine and ...

The story revolves around a divorcee who goes looking for love lost long ago. And find a mystery and a miracle in the quaint town of Peregrine Idaho. Blythe meets a handsome widower by the name of Kevan and the slow simmer begins on their love affair. Beautif...
  • Deb Diem
    Blue Midnight by Tess Thompson is a fantastic read. Ms Thompson has crafted a story with lovable characters, drama, suspense and just a tiny bit of sizzle. Blythe's story is mysterious enough to keep the pages turning. I look forward to reading more from this talented author. Blue Midnight is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.
  • Christina
    Tess Thompson's best yet. Felt like a very personal, true-to-life telling. Liked the characters very much. Engaging tale. Look forward to more in the rest of the series.

    When I get a book like this one I can get lost for a few days. The stories that take you to other places. Make you feel things, sadness, happiness, joy, fear, intrigue. This one has it all.I’ve enjoyed several of Tess Thompson’s books and each is great. This one is no exception. It will pull at your heart and your mind. It’s got some magic. Some edge of your seat. And the love... Oh that is always the best part. After Blythe’s husband dec...

    4.75 Stars, rounded up to 5.0 Stars.BLUE MIDNIGHT is an incredibly moving tale of love lost and found. The only thing that kept this from being a straight-up five-star book was the resolution of the mystery left a little to be desired (i.e., not as dramatic as it could have been). Other than that, I adored this book from start to finish. Tess Thompson is a consummate storyteller, and I can't wait to read the sequel, BLUE MOON (Blythe's sister's s...
  • Angela Wynn
    Full of surprises!I really enjoyed this book... it captured my attention from the title and then the first page. All of the characters were so believable, it was like I knew them all on a personal level. I am not a pet person, but I could even imagine Shakespeare and his aging arthritic limbs. Sometimes the author's inner thoughts were too wordy and I found myself skipping to the next interactive character dialogue. The ending was a good surprise...
  • Rose James
    Blue Midnight (The Blue Mountain Series Book 1) By Tess ThompsonThis book is deserving of the five star rating that I gave it. The story was well written. It had all the elements to keep a reader interested until the very last page. It even had a touch of a mystery that was in need of solving.Which was accomplished by the heroine of the story out of love for her new family. In order to better understand what I am writing about in this review, it ...
