Most disappointed to start the book and realise I've read it before!
This seems to be happening more and more, why are my favourite authors selling books under more than one name and conning me as I buy a book when I see they've got a 'new' release?

Like other reviewers I started this book without knowing about the 'life changing event' which would take place part of the way through the book. I read most of the book while sitting in a hospital corridor whilst my husband was having a serious operation, so perhaps not the best place to be!

I liked the book but didn't love it. I didn't feel that the writer explored the characters in much depth, and much of the story was predictable and convenient. Some of the outcomes, such as that of the parents, were just too good to be true. I have known a friend suffer in a similar situation, at the same age, with the same outcome, and it just wasn't such a comfortable, attractive experience as the author painted. For such a serious subject the story was just too full of lovely homes, nice people and nice situations. Real life just isn't like that.

I normally enjoy Jane Green's books and my only problem with this book was that the central story just didn't fit with the rest of the 'romantic' tale. That being said, it was terribly moving and I can understand, having read the story of her friend on the bookjacket, why she wrote it.

Whilst I appreciate that Jane Green is a good writer technically, I have to admit that since her plots have moved from the London girl about town characters to the homey suburban wives (art imitating life), I have not enjoyed a single one of her books.

This one was no exception. I felt nothing for the main character, or for any of the characters to be honest. Even in the way the characters interact with each other I find nauseating - for example the fact that the main character was made out to be some kind of martyr and everyone else in the story revolving around her and how great and perfect she is/was.

Maybe its an American thing, I dont know. I find a lot of American stories have this 'whimsical' 'over dramatic' way of writing where people tell each other their deepest feelings about one another, or cry every two seconds because an advert for toilet paper reminded them their friend in hospital couldnt go to the shops [just an example!] - something that I think would rarely happen if this was set elsewhere like her older books, people dont tend to have that blatant openness outside of the US.

So I think I ought to stop reading Jane from now on - maybe pick her back up again if I ever find myself living the american suburban lifestyle - which I doubt will ever happen.

I have read alot of Jane Greens books and think she is a brilliant author..but this book by far is the best book I have ever read. Once I started reading this book about Callie and her family and friends, I was so captured by it, I could not put it down, and was totally engrossed from start to finish.
This book will make you laugh and cry...and even if your life has nt been touched by cancer, you will certainly feel that after reading this, your life has been truly blessed.
I would definately recommend this book to all...well done Jane for A TRULY AMAZING READ.

I was really annoyed to receive my order to find that I had already read this book! Its misleading that its been sold under a different title with no reference from Amazon that it is actually The Love Verb. Complete waste of my money. I will think twice about purchasing books from Amazon in the future.

This is a book that has already been written by Jane Green and given another name. I was going on holiday and bought two Jane Green books I had never read, according to the titles, so you can imagine my dissapointment when after reading the first paragraph I said i've read this book already its just been called somthing different.
Promises to keep and Dune Road are both rewrites of books she has written in the past - what a rip off!!

This is one of Jane Greens best books. I cried like a baby through most of it, and it really touched me. I won't give the plot away as I know this book has only just come out, but I liked the way the characters came together. I also liked how one of the main characters wasn't the wife of a NYC banker who lived in the suburbs and is obsessed with keeping up with other housewives. Alot of Janes books have been about this character recently so it was nice that Jane didnt really dwell on this.

Jane dedicated this book to a friend of hers and I could tell that she wrote the story with honesty because of that. It will be a book that lingers with me for a long time.

As an avid reader and collector of books, I am SO HACKED OFF with authors who republish a book having COMPLETELY changed the Cover AND Title, NOT stating it is a reprint or has been previously published under another title, sometimes with Years in between the 1st and 2nd `version`. Both the Author and Publishing House should be ashamed of themselves for being greedy and taking advantage of the `Constant Readers` like myself
