Since his wife's death, world-famous author Ford Newcombe has lived a solitary life, void of creativity - or love. Then Jackie Maxwell tears down the walls of his isolated world with her sassy wit and fierce intelligence. Ford's heart is touched by his vivacious assistant - and his imagination sparked by her knowledge of a strange story that drives them to a small North Carolina town brimming with secrets. There, they will trace the mystery of a woman said to have loved the devil himself... and discover not only the truth about a crime from the past - but a passion that holds the promise of a new life together.
Jude Deveraux, whose "enchanting and extraordinary" (Chicago Daily Herald) novels have enthralled millions, creates two of her most memorable characters in this powerful best seller.

There's time I'll never get back

Uninspiring with unsympathetic characters. Seemed to take forever to hear. Shame, I usually like her books and want to be positive, but I have to be honest

Didn't like "Devil" being the star of this story

Although I was sucked into the story I'm not used to to the devil and darkness of the devil and him making light of the death of people that just doesn't seem like something Jude Deveraux generally writes about so there was minimal love story but the majority of the book was about death and liteterally the devil. I had to check my audible to make sure this was a Jude Deveraux book

Needs more life!!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

someone who has the time to sit and wait for the narrator to get to the point.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jude Deveraux? Why or why not?

yes to the book and no to the narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Blaise reading, boring, no energy

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

this has happened before that when you purchase a book and whatever the cost you expect to have the Professional narration to be done with emotion. Boring to listen to narrator makes for unhappy customers!
