[Book Review] SOMEONE TO LOVE by Jude Deveraux


Jesse Marshall reviews SOMEONE TO LOVE by Jude Deveraux (Atria Books, 2007)

Although three years have passed since the suicide of his fiancée, Stacy, Jace Montgomery is still far from reconciled to her death. Jace does not believe that Stacy committed suicide, and he certainly does not agree with the pervasive idea that she took her life because she could not bring herself to break off their engagement. His discovery of a photo of Priory House in Margate, England, bearing an enigmatic love note to Stacy, leads Jace to travel to Margate and to purchase the expensive but ugly estate. He is convinced that the house contains the answer to the mystery of Stacy’s death.

Jace quickly discovers that Priory House is haunted by the ghost of Ann Stuart who, like Stacy, is supposed to have committed suicide on the eve of her wedding. Jace feels that finding out the truth about Ann Stuart’s death will lead him to understanding Stacy’s death also. He is joined in his investigation by his attractive neighbor, Nightingale Smythe, a former war correspondent and local journalist.

I recommend Someone To Love to readers who enjoy fast-paced reads with familiar characters. It is character centered, includes multiple plot lines, and focuses on romantic relationships. The plot also contains supernatural elements.
