STRANGER IN THE MOONLIGHT
The second in her Edilean trilogy, Deveraux hits yet another home run with a delightful story about love that endures through time and other roadblocks. This is the perfect feel-good vacation read for the summer and no less than we have come to expect from the wonderful Ms. Deveraux.
Kim Aldredge met Travis Maxwell when she was 8 and he was 12, in her hometown of Edilean, Va. They were best buddies for two great weeks — until he left. Years later, Kim is still in Edilean and making jewelry for a living. Travis has never been able to get Kim out of his mind. So when he learns his mother is retiring and moving to Edilean, Travis — now a successful lawyer — decides that he also should go back. Not only does he find Kim, but a whole lot more he never planned on. (POCKET, Sep., 362 pp., $7.99)
