True Love by Jude Deveraux

I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled and honored that I was able to review True Love. I have loved Ms. Deveraux’s books for many years and this was the icing on the cake for me.  I absolutely loved this book.  It reminded me why I love her as an author.  It brought in a new branch of the Montgomery family, while reminding me of the ones I already knew.  It was great to read about Jilly and Mike and Kane and their wives even if it was only briefly. This is a must read for Deveraux fans. On to our review!

Alix and Jared met when she was 4 and he was 14 at his Aunt Addy’s house.  Now many years and secrets later our couple reunites at Aunt Addy’s.  Addy has requested in her will that Alix find out what happened to Valentina over 200 years ago.  Jared doesn’t want Alix in the house that is now his.  He tries to hide who he is so that he can have peace on his Island.  Meanwhile he is trying to help Alix without telling secrets that he has been protecting for so many years. The two realize that they are kindred spirits and falling in love with each other even though Jared was warned to keep his hands to himself.  The two work to solve the mystery and deal with Caleb the ghost of his long dead great great grandfather who won’t give straight answers and Alix’s parents.
