Jude Deveraux brilliantly entwines passion, memory, and a touch of intrigue in this spellbinding New York Times bestseller. At age twelve, Cassandra Madden fell in love with Jefferson Ames, a young man she met at one of her mother's business conferences. For years, Cassandra held on to this unrequited love in order to cope with her loneliness and the pain of her mother's coldness; even after meeting a man she thought she might marry, her heart still yearned for Jeff. In a decisive moment, Cassandra calls off her pending engagement and travels to Williamsburg, Virginia, to become the nanny to the now-widowed Jeff's young daughter. But the object of her desire barely notices her. That is, until the day she hears shots coming from the mansion of an eccentric neighbor, a world-renowned actress. Stepping into a world of deception, where no one is who they claim to be, Cassandra must unravel the secrets all around her -- before she and Jeff can ever find happiness together.

Professional reviews

"In Deveraux's romantic suspense, the world appears to be out to get Cassie Madden. She's been in love with Jeff since she was 12, but her love has not been returned. Now Jeff is a widower, and Cassie takes a job as nanny for his daughter, hoping for the obvious. What she encounters are Jeff's romantic feelings for yet another woman AND a murder mystery involving an aging Hollywood movie star. As unlikely as this scenario seems, narrator Natalie Moore makes it a believable story that may appeal to listeners. Moore does little more than read in an ordinary-sounding voice, but by doing so she portrays a real heroine who is credible in her vulnerabilities and flaws. The result is an engaging listening experience. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
