"A surprise inheritance, and a difficult client...where will it lead?"

Fresh Fiction Review

Ever After
Jude Deveraux

Reviewed by Kimia Safavi

Romance

When Hallie Hartley by accident learns of her sister's betrayal and her inheritance, a beautiful old house on Nantucket from an ancestor she never knew she had, she travels to Nantucket and takes a private physical therapy client for summer.

Hallie expects to treat a spoiled young man and is surprised by the handsome, kind Jamie. Soon she learns that Jamie is hiding something and there are two matchmaking ghosts in the house.

Jamie is a soldier, wounded in the war, and embarrassed by his vulnerability. He is incredibly handsome but his body has so many scars and he suffers from nightmares. He is also kind, humble and an adorable hero. As soon as he sees Hallie, he is attracted to her and tries to hide his scars from her.

The story gets more interesting when Jamie's family come to Nantucket for the wedding with so many handsome men and Jamie is jealous. EVER AFTER is a page turning contemporary romance, even though I had not read the first two books in this series, I really enjoyed Hallie and Jamie's story. In the middle of the book it was a little overwhelming for me with so many characters but I still loved it. The only thing I wanted to be different was the ending for her spoiled step-sister.

EVER AFTER is an easy to read romance with lots of characters, ghosts, secrets, and both great family and horrible families. This makes the characters more real.

SUMMARY

New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux’s eagerly awaited third novel in her blockbuster Nantucket Brides trilogy continues the spellbinding saga of the Montgomery-Taggerts, set on an island steeped in beauty and unforgettable romance.
 
Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything—even her love life—for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly’s acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants—which all too often means Hallie’s boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down: Not only has a mysterious relative left Hallie a house on Nantucket, but Shelly has been trying to steal it. Desperate to put her troubles behind her, Hallie impulsively flies to Nantucket.
 
New trouble, however, has already settled into Hallie’s guest room in the form of her newest client. Hallie is told that wealthy, young James Taggert has injured his leg in a skiing accident. Assuming that the devastatingly handsome man has led a charmed life, Hallie is surprised by Jamie at every turn throughout his recovery. His attentions draw her out of her shell—but he has a dark secret, and is tormented by nightmares that only her presence can keep at bay. She suspects there’s more to his injury than he’s letting on.
 
On this gorgeous island rich in history, magic is everywhere, even in Hallie’s own backyard. As Jamie’s relatives arrive for a wedding gala, something wonderfully unusual is in the air. There’s an aura of romance—enhanced by a pair of matchmaking ghosts and a colorful island legend. In their own little corner of the world, Jamie and Hallie unravel the timeless secrets of their own hearts, and a very special story of True Love destined to last forever after.
