Certain the "smart" Steffington twin is the person who can help her recover her late husband's nearly priceless stolen Chaucer manuscript, Catherine Bexley tearfully persuades the scholar to assist her. A deal is struck. She's particularly pleased that the doctor of letters is not interested in seducing her because she's finished with men (owing to her late husband's multitude of unfortunate alliances with...doxies). Regaining the manuscript and its subsequent sale will give her independence to ensure she never has to marry again.
Once he learns the poor, delicate widow is in danger of losing her heavily mortgaged home if they cannot find the valuable hologram, Dr. Melvin Steffington vows to do everything in his power to restore the rare Canterbury Tales to her. It's obvious the pretty little thing needs a man to help her. Not normally the twin to take note of pretty little things, Melvin can't help but to observe that Mrs. Bexley's physical appearance is much like the beauties so admired by his twin brother.
He hadn't counted on the fact he would have to pose as her husband as they race against the banker's ticking clock. He hadn't counted on the mysterious thief attempting to kill him. Most of all, he hadn't counted on how close he would become to the lovely widow or how the kissing of said widow would become the most pleasant experience in his entire seven and 20 years....

Love in the Library: The Brides of Bath Book 5 Written by: Cheryl Bolen
First book read from this author and series. This is an audible book and I find the speaker is like talking to you as if you are there. The English accent is precisely clear and right words for the time. Easy to follow, especially being the 5th in a series, I am not out in the dark as other series.
Mrs. Catherine Bexsley confides in her friend about her deceased husbands missing article of fortune.
She may have to marry, maybe one of the identical twins. He learns her one year of mourning is up and she's ready to associate with others again.
She needs his help as he's seeking a post at the library. They work together, her confiding in him about her finances and the missing treasure.
In just 2 hours Melvin Stephington (the smart one) finds out so much more about her, her life and what she wants out of life. He hopes he's comforting her when she starts crying, he has no clue to females.
Like hearing of the places their search leads them to and what they do find...like the discussions of the books themselves, bindings, etc.
Misunderstandings get in the way and draw them apart. Will he be able to make her laugh again? Few characters, easy to track of them all.
Free gift from the author in exchange for my honest review.
