Amazon Editorial Review:

Straight from the heart of New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux comes a story of love, tragedy, and mystery in a small North Carolina town brimming with secrets.

Have you ever lost someone who meant more to you than your own soul?

Ford Newcombe has. For years, he loved his wife, Pat, more than anyone -- and anything -- in the world. She came into his life when he was just an inexperienced college student with big dreams of becoming a published author. With love and humor, she guided him down the path that would eventually lead him to more success than he ever dreamed possible. Since Pat's death six years ago, Ford has lived a life of solitude, barely able to put pen to paper, and rumors are flying that it was Pat who actually created the books the world so loved. If there's one thing that Ford needs it's inspiration, and it finally comes in the guise of Jackie Maxwell -- a smart, sassy university researcher with just enough attitude to match Ford's sharp intellect. But it's her intimate knowledge of the story of a young woman's friendship with the devil -- and what the townspeople did to her -- that persuades Ford to hire Jackie as his assistant and to move to Cole Creek, North Carolina, where the story is said to have taken place. They soon learn that even though the inhabitants of Cole Creek try to deny it, they are still plagued by the consequences of the otherworldly tale of passion and death. As Ford and Jackie work to unravel the truth, they discover a connection between their lives and the past, a connection that not only helps them solve a long-ago crime but offers the promise of new love.

Loved by readers and critics alike for her "golden touch" (Publishers Weekly), Jude Deveraux has once again created a story that pulls at readers' heartstrings, titillates their imaginations, and uncovers a long-buried passion that far surpasses the boundary between life and death.


I read it because I happened to have it with me when I finished another book.
It was a pleasant easy read.

rabck from MissCyn. I have a couple of this author's books, but not this one - and I haven't read any of them. Will add to the TBRs, but keep in mind for bedtime, light reading. Thank you!

rabck from MissCyn, NOT a romance novel like this author usually writes. Told in alternating chapters between Ford, the bestselling author who hasn't written anything of substance since his wife/agent died 6 years ago, and Jackie, a university researcher who's devil story of her hometown intrigues Ford. So, he hires her as an assistant, buys a falling town house in that town and sets off to find out more about the Devil story. What is fact and what is fiction?

Saw my j/e above. This is NOT one of her light reads at all!
