Series Wrap-Up | The Edens by Devney Perry

The Edens follows the love lives of The Eden siblings as they navigate their smalltown lives in Quincy, Montana. Most of the books contain some small elements of romantic suspense/mysteries that I was not expecting, but definitely keeps the story engaging. There’s still one more book expected to come out later this year, and I can’t wait to pick it up.

Indigo Ridge

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Because I enjoyed Juniper Hill, and thought Graham and Winn were cute in that story, I figured I go back and read book 1 before continuing on. And one again, not read a book’s synopsis shocked me, because imagine my surprise when this small-town romance started taking queues from a murder mystery and dead bodies and apparent staged suicides were taking over Winn’s job as police chief. This was a wild and engaging story, but the plot wasn’t as enjoyable as book 2 for me, and the romance itself wasn’t as strong either, though I do think they are well matched, I just didn’t care quite as much.

Juniper Hill

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: January 11, 2022
What a fun read, though all the conflicts in the story are kina ridiculous. Memphis and Knox make a strong couple – both looking for stability and balance, which they bring to each other despite their rampant trust issues. Even though this isn’t a holiday romance, it’s got the same cozy feels (apart from the mafia ties) and was a quick read with lots of family dynamics establishing the couple, and setting up the universe for future books.

Garnet Flats

Talia and Foster’s second chance romance both worked and didn’t work for me. While I believed their deep love and relationship in the past, the reasons they had broken up and the miscommunication of it all was a bit much. But I’ve come to realize that’s what this series is – a bit much. But I did rally enjoy their present day relationship, trying to get to know each other again (though there was still some frustrating miscommunication) I would have loved more of Foster’s family relationships explored and I always want flashbacks in a second chance story.

Jasper Vale

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: January 31, 2023
This has been my least favorite in the series and that makes me sad. I can’t say I was particularly excited for Eloise’s story, but I thought getting to know her more and see her relationship with her family -and parents especially – develop would be great. But that didn’t really happen. Neither Eloise or Jasper really had any development individually. And their relationship was so rushed I never felt their chemistry or connection. I think this might show me that I don’t really enjoy marriage of convenience, or at least I’m very picky with it. I also had a problem with the conflict at the end of the story, I didn’t like it and really thought it was unnecessary. But I have hope for the rest of the series still.
Until next time,
