Description

During a rare white Christmas at Brambledean Court, the widow Elizabeth, Lady Overfield, defies convention by falling in love with a younger man in the latest novel in the Westcott series. 

After her husband's passing, Elizabeth Overfield decides she must enter into another suitable marriage. That, however, is the last thing on her mind when she meets Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges, at the Westcott Christmas house party. She simply enjoys his company as they listen to carolers on Christmas Eve, walk home from church together on Christmas morning, and engage in a spirited snowball fight in the afternoon. 

Both are surprised when their sled topples them into a snowbank and they end up sharing an unexpected kiss. They know there is no question of any relationship between them, for she is nine years older than him. 

They return to London the following Season, both committed to finding other more suitable matches. Still, they agree to share one waltz at each ball they attend. This innocuous agreement proves to be one that will topple their worlds, as each dance steadily ensnares them in a romance that forces the two to question what they are willing to sacrifice for love....

Did not disappoint.

Worth the read. Did not dissapoint. My favorite narrator and one of my favorite authors. Great story I just wish I was able to experience more from them as a married couple. They took so long to get together and then it seemed to be over. But I trust the author and will wait patiently for the next book in the series.

Phoned in

I made it to the end, but it was a struggle. It was not Mary Balogh's best by far. It seemed she had to come up with another book for this series so she quickly dashed something off. Even the wonderful narration of Rosayn Landor couldnt save this one for me.

:Great characters, but very very heavy going.

I love the series and the characters. I've been a Mary Balogh fan for many years and think Roz Landor is a great narrator. But, this book could have been a short story if all the repetition has been removed. Regardless, I enjoyed the book. It'll just be a long while before I listen to another Balogh book.

Two who are meant to Love each Other

Loved the book. Lady Elizabeth Overfield has been a widow for several years and is thinking about remarrying. She meets
hers sister-in-laws brother Lord Colin Hodges and there are sparks. But she knows nothing can come if it since she is 9 years older than he.
She does confide to Colin the extent of her previous marriage, the abuse and losing 2 babies to that abuse. When she accepts
another mans proposal she believes she will finally have the children she wants. But the night of their engagement ball he becomes jealous and says things out of rage. She immediately says there engagement is over, she will not go through that again!
Maybe Colin will get another chance. He needs to save her reputation and gossip spreads about her. Another wonderful book by Mary Balogh!

Not even Ms. Landor could save this - almost DNF

Warning: This isn't a romance, but a family story about a man figuring out his life. The love plot is wholly secondary. I've never done Balogh before, but if all her work is so redundant and long-winded I never will. If you have read the other Westcott novels, you'll enjoy listening to their plots being rehashed every few pages. If you need to hear a conversation three or even four times from different POVs to understand what's going on, then you'll love this one. Ms. Landor is, as always, sublime, but this novel was NOT. It was a complete slog, and though I made it through to the end, it never got better. I'm terribly disappointed because most historical romance readers swear by Balogh.

Wonderful story

A great book to end the series. I will miss the characters and their lives. Well written with sufficient intrique to keep the reader invested in the story.

Predictable

This story was just predictable. I have listed to all the other books in this series and was so excited to come across Someone to Trust. Just a few chapters in the story became so obvious. Spent the remainder of the book being disappointed.

Satisfying and comforting as usual from MB and RL

Mary Balogh’s Westport series continues and gets even better with this story, wonderful to listen to at this time of year but by no means a Xmas story. A few loose ends were left but I am sure resolution will come in a later volume. Rosalind Landon was charming and lovely to hear as usual.
