How do I write a review of Denise Liebig s Dear Maude, the first book in the Dear Maude Trilogy, that does the book the justice it deserves, without giving away too much of the plot Ah therein lies

that does the book the justice it deserves, without giving away too much of the plot Ah therein lies the conundrum Conundrum is a very useful word in describing Dear Maude It is full of conundrums and paradoxes, that make you think, make you pause and make you question what you know about physics, science and of course the paradox of time travel The whole time travel thing caught me on the hop I hadn t read much about Dear Maude until I dived into it and my initial thought was this is classic chick lit Exceptionally well written and enjoyable chick lit, in my opinion, but chick lit nonetheless By the time I realised it was so, so, muchthan that, I was totally hooked Suffice it to say, this is the best book within its genre that I ve read in many al long day and I would go even further to say this is one of the better books I ve ever read Definitely a contender for a coveted Grunter award at the end of this year I often talk in my reviews about the joy of discovering fresh, exciting and new indie talent Denise Liebig is definitely that She puts many a big 5 author to shame, in my humble opinion Okay, so the story is pretty straightforward, to begin with Emily Em needed a scholarship to go to University and the quid pro quo for the scholarship was that she had to agree to work for the Evergreen Foundation for four years after graduation No big deal, right What re four years, for a degree WRONG It doesn t take too long for Em to figure out she s sold her soul to the devil and that s all I m telling you about the plot Read it yourself you ll love it As a debut novel, Dear Maude was an outstanding success That Liebig has been able to follow up Dear Maude with the remaining two books in the trilogy is a testament to her seriousness as an author and her consistency I literally cannot wait to read Books 2 3 now If you like time travel, with all its conundrums and paradoxes, or if you like a female protagonist with strength, character, and determination, you ll love Dear Maude I sure did and give it the full 5 Star treatment Kudos to the author and long may she continue to turn out fine books like this debut novel The story begins with Emily Stanton in college sharing her room with a nasty student who suddenly acts like her best friend when Emily meets a guy She d accepted a full scholarship from a mysterious company with the expectation she either pays them back or works for them for four years Holding to her responsibilities, she works for Evergreen Research Corporation and is chosen for a prestigious assignment One she must agree to before she

aunt Maude whom she adored.This story is chocked full of adventure, mystery, romance and time travel The unexpected twists and turn of this intriguing novel had me reading it in one setting Well worth losing some sleep The characters come to life and the descriptions were so vivid I felt as if I had fallen into time with Emily Denise Liebig crafted a well written and captivating story to begin her series Don t worry, there is not a cliff hanger Everything comes together nicely in the final chapter I highly recommend this novel and am ready for the rest of the series Oh Dear Maude Where to start on this First off the time travel alluded to in the blurb didn t even start until about 175 pages into the book The rest was a pretty boring send up Maude trades a college education debt for 4 years of her life During her training at the institute after college she barely asks any questions None of which are answered and she seems to accept that as just fine The story seemed disjointed and all over the place I had to read the blurb again to figure out wh Oh Dear Maude Where to start on this First off the time travel alluded to in the blurb didn t even start until about 175 pages into the book The rest was a pretty boring send up Maude trades a college education debt for 4 years of her life During her training at the institute after college she barely asks any questions None of which are answered and she seems to accept that as just fine The story seemed disjointed and all over the place I had to read the blurb again to figure out who her love interest was supposed to be and which we don t meet until well into the book Once Emily DOES time travel it really made no sense Firstly, being forced into a marriage for money to fund the institute didn t seem to phase Emily at all No college education is worth a forced marriage and possible children as well as losing contact forever with your remaining family Emily barely asked questions so she came across as kinda stupid It implied that Emily was a pioneer in the game of marriage for money Losers became maids etc you would think they would exploit this rich resource a bitand there would be fake niece daughters all over the place If you weren t a maid they made you work in a bordello but you could even own it which seemed like a stupid throw in What evil corporation would pass up the lucrative prostitution trade You were supposed to buy that a former mean girl who became a bordello madam was happy in her fate Nice strike for feminism there.The time travel science was confusing and ludicrous There were current and future versions and hologram versions running around all over the place Like someone from middle school made up how the universe worked This WOULD probably appeal to middle schoolers as YA fiction but
