    Someone to Remember

    I have loved Mary Balogh’s books since I read The Proposal. While I love this short story too, I am very sorry that this is a Novella and not a full story. Mary writes so well, she really should have used her talent to give us the fully worked story that I am missing. Oh well - I did enjoy reading Mathilda’s story and I am sure you will too.

    You are never too old to fall in love again

    In this novella by Mary Balogh, Matilda Westcott gets a second chance at love with Charles Sawyer. They were in love as young adults but Matilda refused him because her parents didn't approve. It has been 34 years and Matilda is now a spinster who takes care of her mother and Charles's wife has passed and they are thrown together again. I loved this story so much. Second Chance romances are one of my favorite romance tropes. I loved both Matilda and Charles. They have both lived very different lives since they courted 34 years ago and I loved watching them reconnect and discover you are never too old to fall in love again. I wish this story was longer. That is my main complaint. I haven't read the other books in the series before reading this one and it took me a while to get everyone straight as there are a lot of characters. I also fell in love with a few of the other characters even if they were not in the novel much. I am going to pick up the rest of the series as soon as I can. Mary Balogh is a genius at writing realistic regency romance. I highly recommend her books to all romance lovers. I prefer her later work but her early work is good as well. Rating: 4 stars *I was given this book for review by Berkley Publishing Group/Penguin Random House through Netgalley. All opinions are my own. Content: Adult

    Great story

    Love the Westcott’s and their convoluted relationships This was a good story about spinster Matilda Westcott; hopefully it’s not the last of the series!

    Wish it had been full length!

    Mary writes REAL people, and reading a love story for a 'woman of a certain age' was a very nice change of pace from the usual young debutante. The story was sweet and I enjoyed it as much as any other story in the Westcott series...just wish it had been full length!

    oh, YES!

    Absolutely stunning: warm, credible, respectful of all the characters. This is definitely a keeper.
