Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: After she mysteriously inherits a nineteenth-century Nantucket house, Alix Madsen gets drawn into the unsolved disappearance of her ancestor two hundred years ago and begins to have feelings for Jared Montgomery, who lives in the property's guesthouse. Set on the magical Massachusetts island of Nantucket, this novel introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, beloved family from many of the author's previous 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. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix, fresh from a romantic breakup, but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding. But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House's ancient floorboards. 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. Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island, an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair. With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves, some of them literally. 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.

    Best-selling romance author Deveraux is at her spellbinding romantic finest as she launches the brand-new Nantucket Brides series. The story follows young Alix Madsen, a brokenhearted architect student, who unexpectedly becomes the owner of a quaint little Nantucket property. Adelaide Kingsley has left the home to Madsen in her will, but who Kingsley is and what her relationship is to the family remains in question. While Alix moves in and gets busy planning her best friend's wedding, she starts falling for the charming architect living in the guest house. But even with all the romance in the air, she becomes aware that Kingsley left the house to Alix in order to help solve an old family mystery. Throughout the novel, secrets slowly emerge within the house and among Deveraux's characters, inducing Alix to question everything and everyone she knows, including her new love interest. Readers will be eager for the next installment. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
