Deveraux, the early years, has always been a favorite author of mine. My all time favorite book is a "Knight In Shining Armor". It is well written and a great story. Many of her early books are very good as well.

In the last 5+ years her books have gone downhill. This one is at the bottom of that hill. This is not a romance. Its a mystery...but a weak one at that. The characters and story are so incredibly dull, you expect that something has got to happen. Yet, it doesn't. The story goes on and on, but never really goes anywhere. The characters are boring. The dialogue is boring. The book is boring.

Save your money!!!!!!!!!

I am always amazed at some of the savage reviews on Amazon. This book was no exception. I enjoyed the return to the Montgomery family. Ms. Deveraux had been criticized by fans eager for another Montgomery family book. So Ms Deveraux obliged. This book had the usual elements found in Deveraux books fan have always liked... quirky characters, funny dialogue and some unusual twists.

What a lot of readers probably do not know is that in the year before this book was published, Ms Deveraux lost her beloved son, Sam, in a tragic accident. Every parent's worst nightmare. I truly thought about, prayed for and worried about Ms. Deveraux in the months following his sad death. In short, I think this book concerning the death of a loved one, is Ms Deveraux's way of dealing with this horrible issue. Jace Montgomery's fiancee dies in what appears to be a suicide. He is haunted by this. Personally to me, this book made a lot of sense. It tied in with what was happening in her personal life. I applaud the book as a great effort and an interesting read.

Format: Hardcover
This is an odd style of romance book. It's set in modern times, but involves both the romance of a modern day couple as well as the love of a couple back in the 1870s. The hero is an American, while the heroine is an English woman. It's a blending of cultures and times. Oh yes, you have to be prepared to accept ghosts as well.

I don't mind ghosts, and I am an avid fan of English culture. I realize that it can be boring to write the same-old romances over and over again, and give Jude great credit for trying something quite off the wall. I can't imagine there are a great number of books involving this combination of situations.

I went into this really wanting to adore this oddball combination and to applaud Jude's venture into something out of the ordinary. Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to connect with all of the characters and their situations, it was very difficult.

First, the two main characters. Jase Montgomery is a wealthy American who does general business "stuff" despite his degree in history. His fiance - a legal secretary - commits suicide in England and he's been distraught for the past few years. He finally decides to go to England, buy the house she was interested in, and figure out why. On the other hand is Nightingale Smythe, a CNN-style reporter who first ridicules him and then is drawn into his quest.

Both are painted with very broad strokes, and it's not really believable that their instant connection is valid, or that they are drawn together so quickly. In fact, during the first scene or two, I felt that she was going to be a nemesis that would cause trouble for him and a woman he *really* would care for. No such luck.

The encounters with the ghosts are equally odd.

I picked this up out of nostalgia for Deveraux's early work... and was hugely disappointed. Boring characters, wandering plot, and a tepid conclusion. I thought maybe I'd get to at least enjoy a tender & passionate love scene as the main characters channeled two of ghosts, but apparently that happened between one chapter and the next.

I give it two stars because I can't quite bring myself to give it the one star it deserves. Time to go back and re-read Velvet Promise.

Jace Montgomery, a rich American, is still struggling with the suicide of his fiancée Stacy three years ago when he discovers a note sent to her just before she died which indicated she had visited a house in Buckinghamshire in England. Jace is trying to get to the bottom of why happy Stacy killed herself and ends up buying the house so that he can investigate further 'in situ' (fortunately for him, and the plot, his grandfather is a billionaire and lends him the money).

When Jace arrives at Priory House in the village of Margate (no, not the port town of Margate in Kent but apparently a very pretty and quaint village) he gets to know the locals including his dragon of a housekeeper with her adulation of Jamie Oliver, a British cook, his gardener Hatch, some other local people and the local policeman who also doesn't believe Stacy's death was suicide. He also meets Nigh Smythe (short for Nightingale), a journalist who is taking some time out after a colleague was killed in Afghanistan.

Jace's cover story for arriving in the village is that he is investigating Priory House's resident ghost and he soon meets the ghost, although it's not the female highwayman that the locals talk about but instead a young woman, Ann, who was about to be married to local lad Danny. The middle of the book rather meanders away from the plot as Jace tries to tempt Ann into appearing to him so that he can ask her about Stacy's death.

Of course all the time that Jace and Nigh spend together, including travelling to the village in which Danny apparently went to live after Ann died, affects them and they begin to fall in love. However can they get to the bottom of Stacy's death and can they find out how to make Ann and Danny happy again so that they can stop haunting the house.
