True Love – Book Review
Are you ready to curl up with a delicious novel this spring? If so, I’d like to introduce you to True Love by New York Times best-selling novelist Jude Deveraux. True Love is the first book in her new series, The Nantucket Bride trilogy.
If you are already a fan of Jude Deveraux, you’ll be delighted to learn that True Love connects to Jude’s previous books by introducing characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux’s classic novels.
And – if you are new to this author but love romance interlaced with elements of mystery, family secrets, and supernatural elements – you will want to add this book to your reading list!
Here is a synopsis of the plot:
Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman’s relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix—fresh from a romantic breakup—but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend’s storybook wedding.
But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House’s ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn’t troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property’s guesthouse.
Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island—an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair.
With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves—some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together.
What I loved about this book is that there are surprises at every turn – starting with the Prologue – and that the story isn’t just a contemporary romance, but is a multi-layered mystery that takes us into the past as well.
True Love will be released in Paperback in May 2014. Keep reading for your chance to win 1 of 3 copies of the new Paperback edition from the publisher!
