Publisher's Summary

The road to love is paved with good intentions.

Life had never been particularly kind to Annie Ramsey. She was poor, uneducated, and without any prospects except misery and pain at the hands of her brother, or whomever he decides she ought to marry. But when a handsome, kind stranger offers her another way, she must decide if she is brave enough to change her situation or if she dares to hope for more.

Duncan Bray could not resist the urge to help the young woman he found in the wintery chill of Yorkshire, feeling driven to save her from the dismal life she lived. Taking her to London and introducing her to a new life there would provide opportunities for her beyond what she ever could have imagined. But he never dreamed how this particular good deed would change everything for him as well.

Good storyline but...

Note: This might have some triggers for some women who have suffered abuse. I almost had to stop reading it pretty early on.

I like how this author has carried all storylines of the friends and given them their own story at some point. You get very “close” to them and care about them more and more.

The narrator is very good, especially at making each voice quite distinguishable so you know who the character is before she even identifies them. I really enjoyed listening to her.

It seems to me that the author has the main characters repeat themselves a lot which got to be annoying. I found myself saying aloud, “Yeah, Yeah, I get it! He loves her!” or “Oh my word, just get on with it!” This book could very well be reduced by at least five chapters with some prudent editing. But all in all, it was an enjoyable “read.”

Good, I look forward to the rest of the series.

This book was good but not my favorite of the series. There was more kissing than I would have liked, especially for the time period, nonetheless it was clean. I am noticing that the men in this series get overly jelous. I like that we get to hear a little from characters in past books though each book can be read on it's own. I started in the middle of the series and fully intend to visit the beginning and future stories. I am intrigued by the introduction of the characters that are in the other novels. The reading was done well, the accents are wonderful, and she does well differentiating between so many male and female voices. Personally I felt like Duncan could have been read less intense in many parts, though he is a serious person and it helps to distinguish his voice so I can see why the reader chose to make him sound as such.
