Ooh, the widow has a backbone and has decided to use it. Dear Moira, don't lose that, please. (I may be tired of door-mat females)
Jane Rathbone was jilted and now wants to find a future. Her brother is happily married and she wants at least a house of her own, but in this time she needs a husband. She sets her cap at Jasper Charton who is an old friend and her ex-fiance's brother. He has returned from America and is looking forward to a future in England, he wants a wife, but his past has murky moments and he's afraid if he admits to it all she will reject him.
Dammit people, talk.
Interesting but relied too much on the hidden secret trope.
Lucy seems to have no luck with men. All she wanted was to be loved and to have her own child and be able to be a mom. Lucy has a great job, her own home but no one to share it with. She also has a loving family and a great circle of friends. Lucy just had yet another relationship end and she wondered if she really needed a man to have her child she so desperately wants. So she decides to look into other routes to having a child to love.
I really liked this story. It was well written and had a good plot. It also had a good pace to it most of the time there was some dragging but not enough to really interrupt the story. But there were surprises in this story also and at times i did choke up and at other times this made me smile which is god my emotions were pulled in. I thought the author gave a good view of single parents. I loved how Lucy wanted a child to love so much she would do whatever she had to when she couldn’t seem to find a good man and a good relationship to bring a child into. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
