I have to start off by saying that Jude Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor is one of my all-time favorite comfort reads (not to mention it has a great dentist scene- can we say bonus points!?). However, some of her other books are hit and miss with me. This book is definitely in the miss category.
My first issue is the pacing. This book dragggggggs. Clocking in at over 500 pages, it could have used...more
Alix Madsen doesn’t understand why the Kingsley’s have given her their home and why both her parents are pushing her to take a year in the beautiful old house. The truth is Alix has been kept in the dark most of her life about her and her parents lives...more

It’s been years since I read a JD novel, and after finally finishing TL, I can sort of recall why I stopped reading them. Is it another case of ‘If you’ve read one of hers, you’ve read them all’ situations? I don’t know if I can recall that far back to her other books that clearly to make a fair comparison. But that’s the problem isn’t it? That they’re forgettable. OK I’m starting to sound mean because maybe there were one or two moments in this that wer...more

I'm finding it very difficult to review this book, it's not that I didn't like it, it's just I didn't like it enough!
I didn't really connect much with the characters, maybe because there were so many of them. And there was the Ghost.
The two main characters were not bad, but I didn't like Alix's parents at all, especially her mother, who has a big part in the book.
I felt a bit confused while reading the book, things were happening out of order. We would be reading about the morning and a...more

True Love was no different and it made it even better that her drop dead gorgeous Montgomerys and Taggerts are back in the picture. Oh, yes, they are! Those men take my breath away, and sh...more
What Jude Deveraux does that no one else can is create this canvas of characters. There is always more to a character than what we see. They have histories and interesting lives and a way to...more
Apparently nothing! For those who have read Jude Deveraux’s books from the beginning, “Montgomery” has been reduced to nothing but a last name.
After her last three books, all set in the psycho town of Edilean, a place full of lying, conniving, busybodies, I was excited to hear Ms. Deveraux was revisiting the Montgomery clan. I’m always up for a story involving the Montgomery/Taggert families. But the Edilean freaks have moved to Nantucket and call themselves Kingsley/Montgomery no...more

I especially enjoyed the relationship development between Jared and Alix. They were perfectly matched. And Caleb was a hoot! I loved him.

I didn't like the characters. Alix, the heroine, or who is better described as the main female character, is young, boring, and just downright naive. I didn't care for her, or how she really didn't have to work for anything. All of her goals and aspira...more

The audio was perfect! The reader excellent!
The opening scene had me from the first few words. The mystery was set right from the start and I loved how the ghost was introduced.
So it is a stor...more
I'd have to give this story a solid 3.5 stars. This is the first book in a new series that Deveraux is releasing. I remember loving many of her early books. She has always been on of my favorite historical romance authors.
The story takes place on Nantucket and is beautifully descriptive. The characters are fun and playful and oh, did I mention one of them is a ghost? I always like a love story with a twist.
She began writing in 1976, and published her first bo...more

"Aren't all women? And you're waiting for Cinderella."
"Actually," Jared said slowly, "I'm rather hoping to find the Evil Queen. I think she'd be much more fun.”
