True Love is the first in a new series - The Nantucket Brides #1
This is the first Jude Deveraux book I've read so I don't know how it compares to her earlier stories but I believe the Montgomery family in this one are the descendents of the original Montgomery's from one of her earlier series. I'm not entirely sure.
Anyway, the story... I enjoyed it. Eventually. I liked it right from the start but there was something that I can't quite put my finger on that stopped me from loving it. It was a gradual thing because the two main characters took a bit of time for me to warm to and were more than a little frustrating in the beginning. They grew on me over time though and as their romance blossomed I started to root for them.
Usually I like my mysteries and romance story's kept separate and prefer one or the other but the two mingled really well here and I really liked the ghostly interactions. I don't think it wouldn't have been half as good without them. It's like two romances for the price of one.
The setting of Nantucket is a good one and I got a real feeling of the place's beauty and History as I read. Sounds like a wonderful place. I'm not sure I'll want to read further into the series though. I might have to get the earlier Montgomery series and start at the beginning to get a better feel for them all. Maybe I'm just missing something here by not having read the others.
If you haven't read the other series it won't matter, this is a stand alone series (I think) but maybe having read her earlier work would have made me more attached to this one.
It's a lovely beach read kind of book and I'd recommend it if you like a bit of paranormal with your romance.
