NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Jude Deveraux, the bestselling author of unforgettable romance, returns with a breathtaking first book in a fantastic new series--the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Set on the magical Massachusetts island, True Love introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux's classic novels.
 
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.

This is one of the best books I have read. Even though it was a thick book, it was never boring. I enjoyed turning every page of it.

You have just got to read this book. I can never get enough of Jude's books - I have read them all! I love it how she has intertwined so many of her wonderful characters from some of her other books into "True Love".

I absolutely loved this book. It is one of the best romance novels I have read in a long time. Jude's books are so magical. I always hate for them to come to an end. It is a wonderful love story with some supernatural woven in. I love the way Jude uses ghosts and supernatural in her stories.

This was the perfect summer read. A love story with a bit of history and a bit of mystery in a wonderful setting. I'm so glad that is it going to be a trilogy.
