This story was a surprise! On the surface, it is about a best-selling novelist widower and his sassy young assistant who brings him out of his 6-years of grief over the lose of his beloved wife. However, it is much more complex than that...add in his poor upbringing and her "kidnapped" childhood...a quiet, little, cursed town...visions and an "invisible person" and a haunted "devil story" in the mix. A fasinating story that makes you want to hear it straight through so you know what exactly is happening! This is not the typical love story!

As for the audio...every other chapter is in a different point of view...hero then heroine...cute to see the man vs. woman's perception! An enjoyable listen!

I read this book as a favor to my wife. She had read it and was so impressed she asked me to read it. Since I don't read "those books" I went into the read with some pre-conceived notions. After all, it was a Jude Deveraux book which meant romance which meant that I would not like it at all. At least that's what I thought.

I would have been satisfied to have read only the first chapter and if I never read the rest of the book, I could not have been more impressed. I really like this book. It is written in such a way as to give the reader the impression that they were the main character in the story. I wasn't outside reading about the character, I was the character. I haven't had that happen to me in a long time.

Regardless of the genre that you are interested in or the kinds of books that you read, this is worth the time that it will take you to pick up the book and read the first sentence. Highly recommended.

A little mystery, a lot of romance...interesting characters. Jude Deveraux knows how to write a story that keeps your interest page after page. This is a good curl-up-by-the fire with a cup of coffee and spend the day kind of book.

I really liked this book. A windowed writer hires an assistant to help him write, and gets involved in a case involving the devil and a woman who loved him. Plenty of twists and turns and a devil like you have never read about before!
