Escape to glorious Nantucket in this truly enchanting summer read... True Love begins New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux's breathtaking Nantucket Brides trilogy, introducing characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from her classic novels.
Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.
But it seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn't troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property's guesthouse and who harbours secrets of his own.
As sparks fly, the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together.
