I loved this book - from the first page it just sucked me in. It had romance (but not too much!), mystery, quirkiness, and fun 'word battles' between the main characters. I think I also liked that Eden Palmer, the main character, is a woman in her 40's! I'm getting tired of reading romances with the main character being 25! I gave it 4.5 stars!

Another terrific romantic suspense by Deveraux. An old house that holds secrets, a heroine on the run and not one, but two great looking guys! AWESOME!

What can be said about Jude that has not been said. This book is as good as all her other books in both modes historical and contempory.

Eden Palmer knows how to make it on her own. The forty-something singler mother has worked hard to raise her beloved daughter-now 27 and presently married. The offspring of a terrible event, Eden's daughter, Melissa, has long been the jewel of Eden's life, the one for whom she would sacrifice anything and everything. But sooner or later a woman must come into her own, and that's what Eden tried to do when she moves to Arundel, North Carolina, to take ownership of Farrington Manor, a beautiful old house filled with charn and meories that was willed to Eden by the person who cared for her when she needed it most.

A great story with surprising twists. Another hit by Deveraux.

It was a fun book. I generally don't read Deveraux's "modern" stories but I was facing a long flight. This was a great distraction and had some funny moments. A fun read.

At first I found this was slow reading but as I read it got more interesting. It is about a woman who inherited a house in a small southern town. Not only did she inherit the house she also inherited two centuries old mysteries: a missing necklace and some art work. She also has two men who are interested in her. To find out the outcome you must read the book.

Like all Jude's books, this one is great until the middle and then it draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags on forever to get to the end. But it's a good story. Main heorine is 45! And so are the TWO men who are trying to catch her heart. That's a refreshing change.

When she inherits a house in a small North Carolina town, she decides to get away from it all. When she arrives, she is surprised to find two men falling at her feet, FBI agents spying on her, and someone trying to kill her......
