Since his wife's death, world-famous author Ford Newcombe has lived a solitary life, void of creativity - or love. Then Jackie Maxwell tears down the walls of his isolated world with her sassy wit and fierce intelligence. Ford's heart is touched by his vivacious assistant - and his imagination sparked by her knowledge of a strange story that drives them to a small North Carolina town brimming with secrets. There, they will trace the mystery of a woman said to have loved the devil himself... and discover not only the truth about a crime from the past - but a passion that holds the promise of a new life together.
Jude Deveraux, whose "enchanting and extraordinary" (Chicago Daily Herald) novels have enthralled millions, creates two of her most memorable characters in this powerful best seller.

Although I was sucked into the story I'm not used to to the devil and darkness of the devil and him making light of the death of people that just doesn't seem like something Jude Deveraux generally writes about so there was minimal love story but the majority of the book was about death and liteterally the devil. I had to check my audible to make sure this was a Jude Deveraux book
I love romance and cultish types of books dealing with magic,supernatural,ghosts,spirits that are long in length. I enjoy thrillers also
someone who has the time to sit and wait for the narrator to get to the point.
yes to the book and no to the narrator
Blaise reading, boring, no energy
this has happened before that when you purchase a book and whatever the cost you expect to have the Professional narration to be done with emotion. Boring to listen to narrator makes for unhappy customers!
The flow of the story did not confuse me as it went from different times in the life of the characters.
Lavender Morning was the same style with regression to the past.
The Voice of the different person in perspective.
The Devil Made Me Do It.
Was a wonderful read with the possability of a second connected story.
"There's time I'll never get back"
Uninspiring with unsympathetic characters. Seemed to take forever to hear. Shame, I usually like her books and want to be positive, but I have to be honest
