Jace is trying to figure out why his happy fiancee suddenly committed suicide-or did she? If you love romance, mystery and the supernatural this is the book for you. Jude Deveraux has combined all these elements and thrown in contrast between English and American traits and meanings. It's very well written-drawing you into a mystery a whole town is curious about.
This book was not initially appealing to me however I decided to read it because I was falling back in love with Jude Deveraux's books after reading her 2 newest. I was kind of bored during chapter one but it picked up and moved great after that. It is pretty full of supernatural stuff such as ghosts but that didn't turn me off. I thought it was a great read. Only reason gave 4 stars as it was not really a romance novel but a mystery novel- I am not a big mystery fan. But still a great read over all.
I have loved all of Jude's books. I will have to say that this is my least favorite. Even though I enjoyed it, it seemed like there was more to the story than what was written. Hopefully her with her next book she will be back to par.
SOMEONE TO LOVE
In this touching historical romance from author Jude Deveraux, a man refuses to believe his fiancé committed suicide and goes searching for the truth. After stumbling upon a clue, he buys a haunted house that he believes holds the secret of her death.
Three years after wealthy Jace Montgomery's fiancée, Stacy, committed suicide, he discovers a postcard of Priory House, a British estate, with an enigmatic love note. Although Stacy's family blamed Jace, saying she wanted to end the engagement, he knows their love was mutual, and has never believed it was suicide. Certain that Priory House holds the key, he buys the estate. He detests the rambling house on sight; however, he is intrigued by the Victorian ghost of Ann Stuart because, like Stacy, she supposedly committed suicide before her wedding to escape from marrying her intended groom. Jace knows that if he can untangle Ann's mystery, he can find out what really happened to Stacy. He gets help from his beautiful next-door neighbor, Nigh Smythe, a war correspondent on leave after a tragedy.
