TRUE LOVE by Jude Deveraux Audio Edition
Like a little mystery mixed with your romance? Of course, so one of the best summer listens is Jude Deveraux’s initial offering in a new series - the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Just the thought of a wedding on beautiful Nantucket was enough to make me grab my earphones!
And I was enthralled by both the plot and the stellar narration by award-winning producer, narrator and writer Tavia Gilbert. By turns her easy listening voice resonates with regret, apprehension, love plus all of the emotions experienced in True Love.
On the verge of finishing school Alix Madsen received a rather odd bequest from the late Adelaide Kingsley - the use of her nineteenth century Nantucket house for one year. But, why only one year? Nevertheless, Alix accepts the bequest in part to get over a painful breakup and also to plan her best friend’s perfect wedding.
However, she soon finds that Kingsley House harbors some secrets of its own, and she meets handsome-and-he-knows-it architect Jared Montgomery who is living in the property’s guesthouse. Unbeknownst to Alix he’s there to look after her. Little do they know the impact a 200-year-old event will have on them.
As the wedding nears one senses that perhaps the departed are reappearing in contemporary bodies. A little reincarnation twist adds even more spice to an already delicious summer listen. Enjoy!
