Scarlet Nights | [Jude Deveraux]

Scarlet Nights

Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in. While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper.

Publisher's Summary

What if you learned that your fiancé was not who he claimed to be?

Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in.

While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper. He’s an undercover detective, and his assignment is to use Sara to track down a woman who is one of the most notorious criminals in the United States—and also happens to be the mother of the man Sara plans to marry.

Mike thinks the job will be easy—if he can figure out how to make a “good” girl like Sara trust him, that is. But Mike has no idea what this mission has in store for him. He’s worked hard to keep private his connections to Edilean, which date back to his grandmother’s time there in 1941. But as Mike and Sara get to know each other, he can’t help but share secrets about himself that he’s told no one else. And in return, Sara opens up to Mike about things she could never reveal to Greg. As the pair work together to solve two mysteries, their growing love begins to heal each of them in ways they never could have imagined.

    Story
    "Moronic"
    What disappointed you about Scarlet Nights?

    I expected an actual mystery, not a Harlequin ROMANCE. The premise was entirely preposterous.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing from this author.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Character voices lacking and the fake Southern accents on SOME but not all the characters from VA.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It started out promising and then got ridiculous.

    "Great Story, lousy narrater"
    If you could sum up Scarlet Nights in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Suspenseful, Heart Warming


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was believable and exciting.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Gibson’s performance?

    All the voices sounded the same a little whiney and weak. Did not show all the strong personalities of Miss Edi, Joc, Luke and especially Tess. I would never again purchase an audible book that was narrated by Julia Gibson.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Jude, Please choose Barbara McCulloh or Davina Porter for all your books,

    "Great story"

    Action, Adventure, Intrigue plus weaving the past with the present. What more could you want. The only problem was the narrator's attempt at imitating male voices, she did a good job except for that.

    "Adequate"

    This was an ok story. Kind of predictable. If you love romances, I guess this is adequate. I stayed interested enough to finish it.

    "I love most of Jude's novels."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Scarlet Nights to be better than the print version?

    Audio books are a great choice for travel and relaxation. I love to read but this is a great option when that is not possible.

    "A Love Story and and Mystery"

    Instead of just a drippy love story, the author winds a mystery thriller around a love story. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    My only objection is that while the reader has a wonderful soothing voice, it just didn't seem to fit the story or the characters.

    Story
    "Slow"

    An initially TSTL heroine in a slow story, which only livened up in the last hour or so. It appears to be the third in a series, but I can't say I'm tempted to listen to them. It's not awful, but certainly not a book I'd bother listening to twice..
