New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux returns to the magnificent, sunny island in For All Time, the second novel in her Nantucket Brides trilogy - this time featuring the next generation of her beloved family of Montgomery-Taggerts.
The wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery is a glorious affair at an elegant little chapel in the woods, followed by dinner and dancing, all while moonlight blankets the festivities in a romantic glow. While most guests are fixed on the happy couple, Jared’s cousin Graydon can’t look away from a bridesmaid, Toby Wyndam. It’s not just her quiet beauty that enthralls him or the way she makes him laugh. Toby possesses the truly remarkable ability of being able to distinguish Graydon from his identical twin brother, Rory. According to family legend, such a gift marks her as Graydon’s True Love.
But Graydon knows there is no possible way that they can ever be together, for he is heir to the Lanconian throne and is to marry a noble woman who has been chosen for him. Yet, intrigued by Toby, he asks her to help him hide on Nantucket for a week away from regal responsibilities. In exchange, he’ll assist her with planning acclaimed novelist Victoria Madsen’s lavish wedding. Since they both know their union is impossible, the pair promises that they will never be more than just friends.
But there’s more going on between Graydon and Toby than her unique power to tell him apart from his twin. At work are forces beyond their control, which are ruled by time itself. Combine that with the magical island of Nantucket, and a seductive spell is cast over Graydon and Toby. If they are to be together, they must change what once was, as well as what will be.

"A new Jude Deveraux novel means a very late night turning the pages straight through to the delicious end." (Susan Elizabeth Phillips)
"A beautiful island, a sexy man and plenty of secrets - this is a wonderful writer at her best." (Susan Mallery)
"Deveraux is at her spellbinding romantic finest." (Booklist)
So sick of audibles that could pass for porn. This was fun and easy to listen to each day. The performance was good. The characters were well delineated. The twist with time travel was interesting. A good book. Thanks.
It was a decent book but could have been about 3 hours shorter. Some of the descriptions of things were just to long winded and unnecessary. I absolutely couldn't stand Victoria's voice or high handed attitude and behavior. I must say that I had my fill of her in the first book so I was less then pleased to see that she was in this book too! But all in all the book was ok deserves a rating of 3 stars.
I like Jude Devereaux stories, but almost stopped listening in chaper 1 because the narrator had such a terrible voice for the male characters. I decided to listen anyway, and it improved slightly, and the story was a good one, but in general this was a let down..
I did like the story line of Toby being able to tell the difference between twin brothers and the whole mystery of it, however, the entire love story fell flat. It wasn't until the end that the love story was finally gaining speed and the story was over. Not as captivating and interesting as Book I of the Nantucket Brides Series. Only read it once cause it just did not keep my interest. Usually I read Ms. Deveraux's books more than once but was ready to return this one after only one read. Too Bad.
Take away the boredom of the story.
The end when they finally got together.
No, unfortunately. I just wanted to get to the end as quickly as possible so I could purchase another book by another author!
Hopefully Book 3 in the series will be much better as I waited hungrily for Book 2. I enjoyed Book 1 so much and listened to it more than once.
One of the best. I love Nantucket, ghost stories and history. Love that lasts through centuries? The perfect fantasy.
Finding the key in the window seat
It was so sad when they read the letter about Tabby dying in childbirth
I can't wait for the next story!
