Publisher's Summary

When Cassandra Madden was 12 years old, she fell in love with Jefferson Ames, a young man she met at one of her mother's business conferences. She was a lonely child, with a cold mother, and holding onto her love for Jeff helped her cope with her isolated life.

When she grew up, she went to college and even met a man she thought she'd marry, but Jeff was still in her head. She broke off her near engagement and went to Williamsburg, Virginia, where she secretly got herself a job as a nanny to the widowed Jeff's young child.

Even though Cassie was living in Jeff's house, seeing him every day, she still couldn't seem to get his attention. But then, one day, she heard shots coming from the mansion of Althea Fairmont, a woman the world called "the greatest living actress". Cassie ran to investigate and, in an instant, her safe little life was turned upside down. She began to learn that all the people around her weren't who they claimed to be. Everyone had secrets, and until Cassie unraveled those secrets, there was no chance for happiness between her and Jeff.

Narration was annoying

I liked some of the story, but it was pretty cheesy. Dialogue was bad and I did not enjoy this narrator.

Jude does it again

I love all Jude Deveraux s books. And the narrator was good. I just thought she sounded too old for the character.

It was an interesting story.

Review of “Secrets”

The Narrators voice just did not fit the story and for me was a distraction. The story had a good plot but was hard to fathom as the voice of the narrator was too sing songish.

Yes

This, as always with her books, was a pleasure to read. No time travel in this one, but enjoyed it very much.

New book? Maybe not

The further into this book I got, the more I knew what was going to happen. They said this was a new release, but it's been done previously. I guess it was renamed and republished under another name. Would like to know if anyone else agrees?
