Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Late one spring, Hallie Hartley learns she's inherited a beautiful old house on Nantucket from an ancestor she never knew she had. She learns of her luck from Jared Montgomery, who arranges for her to take on his cousin James Taggert as a private physical therapy client for the summer. Hallie expects a spoiled, frivolous playboy, but Jamie surprises her by being kind, considerate, and humble--not to mention incredibly strong and handsome. But Jamie's hiding something: every night Hallie hears him crying out in his sleep. Finding that only her presence can calm him, Hallie begins spending the night with Jamie, sneaking away every morning before he wakes up. It's not until Jamie's extended family descends onto the island to celebrate a lavish wedding that she discovers the truth: Jamie was a soldier, wounded in combat while saving a friend, and has suffered from PTSD since his return. Jamie withdraws, embarrassed by his vulnerability, while Hallie questions how she can trust him after he's lied to her all summer. But as the two team up to solve another of Nantucket's enchanting mysteries, whether it's the romantic island setting or possibly the work of some meddling matchmaker ghosts, Jamie begins to realize maybe he's found the one woman who can love him for who he is, scars and all"-- Provided by publisher.

    Hallie Hartley has put others before herself, including her spoiled stepsister, Shelly. But when Shelly attempts to steal the Nantucket home that Hallie has inherited from a long-lost relative, it's the last straw. Hallie decamps to the island, and a physical-therapy job assisting a mysterious (and wealthy) young man recovering from a skiing accident. There's more to Jamie Taggert than good looks and money, and Hallie finds herself falling in love, with a little help from the home's resident ghosts. Best-selling Deveraux's (For All Time, 2014) fans will relish the closing installment in her Nantucket Brides series, which features many of her trademarks—a sensual love story, a touch of the supernatural, and members of the sprawling Taggert clan. Hallie is a bit of a Cinderella, with a wicked stepsister who gets her comeuppance, and Jamie, a war veteran whose physical scars reflect the emotional toll of combat, is an appealing hero with a surprising sense of humor. The combination of a popular setting, likable characters, and happy endings for all make this another winner from this prolific author. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
