New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux's eagerly awaited third novel in her blockbuster Nantucket Brides trilogy continues the spellbinding saga of the Montgomery-Taggerts, set on an island steeped in beauty and unforgettable romance.
Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything - even her love life - for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly's acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants - which all too often means Hallie's boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down: Not only has a mysterious relative left Hallie a house on Nantucket, but Shelly has been trying to steal it. Desperate to put her troubles behind her, Hallie impulsively flies to Nantucket.
New trouble, however, has already settled into Hallie's guest room in the form of her newest client. Hallie is told that wealthy, young James Taggert has injured his leg in a skiing accident. Assuming that the devastatingly handsome man has led a charmed life, Hallie is surprised by Jamie at every turn throughout his recovery. His attentions draw her out of her shell - but he has a dark secret and is tormented by nightmares that only her presence can keep at bay. She suspects there's more to his injury than he's letting on.
On this gorgeous island rich in history, magic is everywhere, even in Hallie's own backyard. As Jamie's relatives arrive for a wedding gala, something wonderfully unusual is in the air. There's an aura of romance - enhanced by a pair of matchmaking ghosts and a colorful island legend. In their own little corner of the world, Jamie and Hallie unravel the timeless secrets of their own hearts - and a very special story of true love destined to last forever after.

I started reading Jude Deveraux books the summer I turned 16. My best friend and I were on vacation in Maine that summer, and we spent quite a few hours being captivated by the Black Lyon and the Angel series. I am now 36, a war veteran (female) and suffer from small scale PTSD. It is embarrassing to me to be less than I was, but this book was touching. I rushed out to buy the hardback and read it in one night. Then I drove it down to my best friend's house, loaned it to her, and bought the audiobook to commute to my job at the base hospital with everyday.
I have all the Jude Devereaux books that are published in print, even the collaborative ones. I would like to hear them all on audiobook, and the Narration was good as well, I am going to pull out the invitation right now and read it on this cold afternoon day in Alaska.
Thank you for years of wonderful entertainment, and sharing your gift of writing with the world. It takes me somewhere, makes me feel, and leaves me wanting more adventures.
Jude deveraux has been one of my favorite arthors for over 20 years. I love how her universe overlaps between the series. it's like you get to check in on old friends. another great read/listen.
Nantucket Island too friendly Ghost a wedding and several plot lines lead to a very romantic and sexy story. highly recommend enjoyed it very much I wish Jamie was real.
I very much enjoyed all three books of the series I laughed ,I cried and I thought it was wonderful and well written
This is a romance without the explicit intimacy you find in many books today and follows the footsteps of all the other excellent Deveraux books.
I don't recall reading any other performances of Kirsten Potter however, I would be willing to if other books sound interesting. She delivers an excellent performance even with the male characters which I sometimes find sub-par with female narrators.
It is sometimes difficult to listen to non-suspense romances simply because the move slow and while not bad less engaging than suspense or mystery romances. This book, along with every other Jude Deveraux book seems to be an exception because I am truly engaged through the whole story and do not want to miss a word narrated the entire book.
I couldn't wait to finish this book only because I wanted to find out the ending I listen to all 9 and whatever hours of it straight because I couldn't stop couldn't put the book down jude Deveraux has another winner on her hand
