    Before I Met You PDF/EPUB Ø Before I Kindle - before book, Before I epub, Before I Met You eBookI've been on a Lisa Jewell kick and enjoying reading through her backlist I have to say this one is my least favorite by far I almost had a hard time believing this was the same author Two alternating timelines one Arlette post WWI England falls in love with a famous black musician but chaos ensues The other Betty Dean Great name in the 1990's cares for Arlette on her deathbed and then goes out to search for the person named in Arlette's will Clara Pickle How are these characters all related Secrets racial tension and pop stars all get in the way I have to admit I was much interested in Betty's story than Arlette's Which almost never happens who ever likes the present day better than the historical This one just missed the mark for me I wasn't super invested in the char

    Before I Met You PDF/EPUB Ø Before I Kindle - before book, Before I epub, Before I Met You eBookA good idea for an interesting plot but the author couldn't get far enough away from her usual chick lit style to do it justice The result was much too twee for me and also littered with silly and avoidable inaccuracies Of these for me the worst was on page 430 a big empty house on a cliff with distant tantalising views towards the white cliffs of Dover The house was in Guernsey Dover is over 200 miles away And if distance and the earth's curvature were not a big enough obstacle the Cherbourg Peninsula in between the two would certainly block the view So an easy read

    Before I Met You PDF/EPUB Ø Before I Kindle - before book, Before I epub, Before I Met You eBookI've read and enjoyed Lisa Jewell's books for than ten years and I highly recommend both One Hit Wonder and A Friend of the Family But Before I Met You left me cold Jewell does a good job of portraying the combination of wide eyed wonder tinge of fear and naive determination that both Betty in the 1990s and Arlette in the 1920s feel as young women on their own in a big city for the first time She also keeps the pages turning to find out the mystery behind the beneficiary in Arlette's will who Betty is determined to find But the narration is strangely distant from the characters and I never felt fully connected to them The object of Arlette's passion is of a paragon than a real person view spoiler It was difficult to believe even in those short enlightened years between the World Wars that almost nobody batted an eyelash when Arlette became the lover

    Before I Met You PDF/EPUB Ø Before I Kindle - before book, Before I epub, Before I Met You eBookThis felt like a departure from other Jewell novels I’ve read It’s not a romance but it was essentially a study of how the romantic missteps of two women in different periods shaped the development of their lives and personalities And very oddly they both seemed fairly ordinary except for the siren like effect each had on men around them men who found them devastatingly attractive a characteristic that felt manufactured and out of place with the way you otherwise see the two women in their worlds Their extraordinary and inconstantly portrayed beauty seemed manufactured to place them in situations and relationships necessary for Jewell to go where she wanted in the story when interesting and authentic set ups could have worked as well It was just—odd I was disappointed by how little of the search to learn to the identity of a mysterious woman occupied the story and how predictable the eventual results were Still despite my

    Before I Met You PDF/EPUB Ø Before I Kindle - before book, Before I epub, Before I Met You eBookI was expecting this to be better than what it was It started off great but then somewhere in the middle I kind of lost interest I wanted to know what happened so I kept reading but I didn't really get into the characters Just finished with a lukewarm feeling overall Just a little disappointed The use of the f word was over used as well which became very irritating
