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...

    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...
  • 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 ...
  • Teresa
    Blue Midnight by Tess Thompson Do you believe in second chances? What about love at first sight? Well after reading this incredible book by Tess Thompson I'm inclined to believe in miracles. 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

    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...
  • Jeanne Johnston
    I think I keep falling for these "jettisoned my worthless husband who made me feel like crap, so now what do I do?" books hoping I'll get a pointer. Instead, they're all about women who magically fall in love with the perfect man. This didn't break the mold much. One amazing coincidence after another and boom, happy ending. Harmless enough, and it was at least edited and didn't have typos and crazy punctuation that made me tear my hair out. Proba...
  • Laurel
    Fantastic chaste readI am sad for the first time in months, that a book is over. This book is for anyone who let a special someone get away, then had a chance to go find that special person, only to find out they had passed away in an accident. Then the real story starts. There are no magic unicorns that come and make things right, but this book has truths and heart.
  • Patricia Grogan Bugher
    After her recent divorce, Blythe’s ex-husband takes their children on his three-week to Hawaii. While they’re gone, at her sister’s urging, she takes a trip cross country to search for a long ago love. This is such a good book. You’ll love Blythe’s adventure.
  • Michele H Williams
    Love lost, love foundWhen you experience the kind of heartbreak that renders your body and soul nonfunctiong, it is impossible to believe your heart can not only heal but find love again. This is a story of hope and love. We all hope to find the kind of love Lou finds.
  • Robert Bechtold
    enjoyed the adapting of the heroine to new situation as a single mom. Nice devolopment of a story told also.The book provided an entertaining afternoon of reading. I think it was a clean romance and contained a good cast of charcters.
  • Phyllis C Surface
    Two starsLong and predictable for me, so not much of a reading challenge. Sorry, cannot recommend this one to other readers.
