Guest Review of “True Love” by Jude Deveraux
By Susan Wiggs
Susan Wiggs lives at the water's edge on a Puget Sound island and finds inspiration in the rhythm of the seasons, and in emotional dramas of everyday life. A No. 1 New York Times best-selling author, she has received three RITA Awards, and her novels have been translated into more than two dozen languages.
Oh, Jude, you had me at “Nantucket.” I happen to love islands. I live on one, I’ve visited many, but Nantucket holds a special place in my heart. True Love, with its star-crossed lovers and twisty plot, evokes everything that makes Nantucket so special–the history, the atmosphere, the secrets and the magic.
And Jude Deveraux, author of fan favorites like A Knight in Shining Armor, Remembrance, Sweet Liar and so many others, does the setting justice in this tale of a mismatched couple, a hunt for a lost family journal and ghosts that haunt a historic mansion. The combination is hard to resist, particularly in the hands of this author. Talented architect Jared Kingsley Montgomery (yes, those Montgomerys, be still my heart)--a hero from a long line of smart, sexy and soft-hearted Montgomery men--braces himself for the arrival of Alix Madsen, who has been bequeathed Jared’s ancestral mansion for a period of one year. The surprises begin in the prologue--when we realize Jared’s conversation with the 30-something Caleb is actually with a ghost, one who yearns for answers and closure.
Alix, still smarting from a broken heart, is in need of a change, though the last thing she’s looking for is romance. She’s content in the role of planning her best friend’s wedding, until she meets Jared. She also has a gift for sensing the presence of ghosts, and is specifically charged with figuring out what became of Caleb Kingsley and the mysterious Valentina, a long-lost Montgomery relative. In the process, she unravels the secrets of her own family, finding a deeper understanding of her mother.
Jared, a commitment-phobe who claims he might find the Evil Queen more interesting than Cinderella, can’t deny his sizzling chemistry with Alix. The result is as romantic and mysterious as falling in love.
Longtime fans will appreciate the shout-outs to Montgomery and Taggert characters from past books, and new readers will celebrate the launch of this fresh, fun trilogy of Nantucket stories. Following the happily-every-after ending is even happier news–there's more to come.
Best-selling romance author Deveraux is at her spellbinding romantic finest as she launches the brand-new Nantucket Brides series. The story follows young Alix Madsen, a brokenhearted architect student, who unexpectedly becomes the owner of a quaint little Nantucket property. Adelaide Kingsley has left the home to Madsen in her will, but who Kingsley is and what her relationship is to the family remains in question. While Alix moves in and gets busy planning her best friend’s wedding, she starts falling for the charming architect living in the guest house. But even with all the romance in the air, she becomes aware that Kingsley left the house to Alix in order to help solve an old family mystery. Throughout the novel, secrets slowly emerge within the house and among Deveraux’s characters, inducing Alix to question everything and everyone she knows, including her new love interest. Readers will be eager for the next installment. --Carissa Chesanek --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The setting in this book is just perfect as well. There are so many detailed descriptions of the houses, streets, shores, etc.. of Nantucket that I really could picture all of it in my head. When I can really picture the town, houses, and landscape so vividly, the author has done a great job. I think I fell in love with characters as the story progressed. Great book!
Alix is surprised to find out that the man who she has been told to contact in case she has any trouble with the house is the much acclaimed architect, Jared Montgomery. At first the two do not get along but before too long they are working on plans together and of course romance blooms. There are several plot twists involving her parents and their connection to the island and why she was only taken there once. Alix is also the only known non-family member who can see the ghost.
I liked the book for what it was. I appreciated that it was cleanly written without the glaring spelling and grammar problems that I see in so many books these days. I liked the characters although I did get tired of Victoria's interventions into everyone's lives. This is the first in the Nantucket Brides series. If you like romance with some sex but not the 50 shades of gray variety, this book should do the trick. Personally, I would have preferred the characters using protection during sex both because of sexually transmitted diseases and for birth control purposes. This may just be the nurse in me coming through but no sex is good enough to die for.
