My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥
This was the story of Ford Newcombe, and his assistant, Jackie Maxwell. How they met was cute and unexpected. When things fell apart for Jackie, she took his offer for a position as his assistant and went with him.
They moved to the small town Cole Creek that had a story about the devil and a woman. They were both wanting to solve this mysterious tale of meeting with the devil and murder. They were going to see if it had any validity.
Things in this book were a bit crazy, unexpected and even fun. Ford is a good bit older than Jackie and has lost the love of his life. He is not looking and Jackie has just been hurt so she isn’t either. It makes for a lovely story.
I love Jude Deveraux and when she writes she brings me along to new locations. That was exactly what happened here. I became invested in the story, the story she was telling and the story they were investigating.
Jude mixed supernatural with romance in a subtle manner and came away with a charming story. It was good. I enjoyed this book.
If you love a paranormal and romance you should enjoy this book. It is filled with excitement and eerie tales. The characters are very likable and the pace of the story moves along at a nice energized clip. It has a lot of cute moments as Ford and Jackie get to know one another and find themselves interested in each other.
