True Love by Jude Deveraux - #bookaday 9
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Not my usual fare. It's been a billion years since I read any Jude Deveraux. I'd been looking for a romance and I also wanted to read about Nantucket (never been but makes me think of summer) and someone on Goodreads had just finished this one. Luckily, they had it at the public library - on Overdrive.
Alix is an architect student who gets sent to live in the Kingsley House on Nantucket as part of the will of one of her mom's closest friends. She can live there for a year and work on her culminating project for architecture school.
Kingsley House happens to belong to Jared Kinglsey Montgomery - a famous architect whom Alix admires and would love to have look at her drawings. (snicker). Jared would rather not, especially since he knows a great deal about Alix that he needs to keep secret.
Another resident of the Kingsley house is Jared's grandfather, Caleb. His five-times great, dead grandfather. Caleb can only be seen by certain family members and he is hoping that somehow, he can connect with Alix and she can help him move on.
Despite the contrived storyline of past and present overlapping, this was fun. I will actually read the second book.
