Have you ever fallen out of love with a favorite author? Was the last book you read by the author so bad, you broke up with them and haven’t read their work since? Could they ever lure you back?
Jilly Cooper, I adored her first novels Riders, Rivals, Polo, The Man who made Husbands Jealous and then she started to get a bit too much. The same stories got recycled always featuring Rupert Campbell-Black - still the most handsome man is Britain. Really? come on! He must be about 60 by now. Are ALL women still falling at his feet? It's time to find new characters but ones who are fun not obnoxious like Emerald and Abby. I didn't buy the last book, maybe if she returns to the world of horses I'll buy the next one.
I am also beginning to fall out of Love with Diana Gabaldon. I did buy the last book but I really feel she needs to say goodbye to Jamie and Claire. I realise this must be hard and I do love them but how much longer can their story continue? Also her editor needs to intercede a bit and cut the word count, I could barely lift A Breath of Snow and Ashes. the Lord John books sound interesting though so I will keep buying her.
