It is a must read for Jude Deveraux fans, particularly those who love the legendary Taggert family. This novella stands alone, and can be enjoyed by anyone. However, it will hold special delight for anyone who has read previous books featuring the Taggerts. This is a contemporary story and features “Mac” Taggert as the hero.

This is a novella, yet it is incredible how much depth of characters and story Deverakx Deveraux incorporates in this most enjoyable read.
As with most of Ms. Deveraux’s stories, there is humor and crackling dialogue. There is also a need to be willing to suspend some disbelief; if for some reason it is beyond one’s sensibility that two people can fall truly in love within a span of days, then this is not a story for you.
Judf you can accept that some things may not be common, but that doesn’t make them impossible, and if you enjoy a glorious happy ever after, then I definitely recommend this.
I also particularly recommend this for anyone who likes Christmas novellas Okay, I really loved this one, mostly because it is set in the business world and Karen is a hoot.
A widow who was truly in love with her husband, she is having trouble finding a donor for a baby that won’t involve sex with someone else, which she feels would be a betrayal of her love for her dead husband.
She also has no respect, and no contact, with her boss, Mac Taggert. Until that changes at an office Christmas party. It gets really funny and interesting after that, although the ending is ch Okay, I really loved this one, mostly because it is set in the business world and Karen is a hoot. It gets really funny and interesting after that, although the ending is choppy and feels unfinished.
I wondered if the ebook did not download completely at one point, but it could be Ms. Deveraux’s usual hurry to close.
Detailed Review Summary of Just Curious by Jude Deveraux
I wish she would take as much time with her endings as she does her beginnings. Apr 03, Henna juwt it it was amazing Shelves: Read it such a long time ago but found it recently again. It is a very romantic story that made me look at the other books of Taggert family. So far none of them are as good as this one.

They go and spend a weekend among his friends and Karen finds that what she thought she knew about Mac is not the real Mac. It has been awhile since I read any books by Jude Deveraux and I realize how much I have been missing.
Karen and Mac are wonderful characters. They are bright and witty and they have a mutual respect, shared values and sense of humor. The reader wants them to have a happily ever after.
This is a holiday story in the truest sense of the term. There is Christmas joy everywhere. Ms Deveraux has created a lovely sense of love and laughter, which is just what one would expect from her.

Just Curious Book Summary and Study Guide
This whole stupid story, those beautiful “damaged” characters. The “I will love my dead husband forever” stuff, but wanting a baby so much. The insanely rich guy who is willing to make the baby with her in exchange for her accompanying him to a wedding. Because incredibly handsome billionaires need to bargain with secretaries for something like that. This was such a mess. Dec 05, Samantha Ball rated it it was amazing. This was so cute!
I was searching for a Christmas read and found this on the Kindle store for 99 cents! Best 99 cents I have spent in a while! It was just what I was looking for, a cute and corny Christmas story filled with warm and fuzzy moments. For being under pages you obviously don’t get the depth of a full length novel, but I loved it. I really enjoyed all of the characters and the adorable family. Couldn’t put it down.
You did not tell me what the next book in the series was.
I’ll have to look around and try and find it. I recommend this book to all my friends. Love the characters and how the book ended. You did not curios me what next book in the series class. I recommend this book to any of my friends. Loved all the characters and how the book ended. Smiles A cute, funny story. The characters in the story all fit together. Sometimes I read a nude and think – that part was unnecessary, just filling up space.
