Publisher's Summary

"I didn't really understand what love was. I didn't know what it meant, that I should've fought harder for it."   

Banished from home by her angry father, Julia Devon travels to Bath to fulfill her role as family spinster by assisting her cousin, Lady Macon, in caring for her dying husband.   

Nathaniel Hastings's life runs in a predictable pattern, until a routine visit to one of his ailing patients brings him face to face with Julia, the woman who broke his heart five years before in London.    

Julia and Nathaniel find themselves unlikely allies as they work together to tend to the family's needs, fend off Lady Macon's scheming brother-in-law, and avoid confronting the pain of their shared past. But could this accidental meeting be their second chance at love?

Very enjoyable

A lovely sweet, clean story reminded me a little of Jane Austin’s Persuasion. So if you’re looking for a sweet romance I recommend this one.

Was curious to hear Julia's backstory

Though a little slow, I enjoyed this follow up about Julia, who was introduced in book one. I appreciated the clean romance. The narrator is good, though a little slow, so I listened at 1.25. And her mispronunciation of the word physician stalled the flow for me until my brain learned to get around it.

Gloomy

It is a good story but gloomy until the next to the last chapter, and the narrator does not help. She keeps her voice and tone monotonous and gloomy even when the situation does not call for it.

The story centers around the dying baron and his family, which overshadows Nathaniel and Julia who become a little more than supporting cast rather that the main characters. Furthermore, the custody and will situation is not resolved. We never hear any more about it. I understand that Virginia gets her own story, but I would have liked to hear about the resolution to that situation since I may not buy the other books.

An enjoyable story

The narrator does an excellent job of bringing this story to life. The main characters were well thought out and very likeable. This was an enjoyable book and I'm looking forward to reading/listening to more books by this author.

** For all the Jane Austen lovers **

I thoroughly enjoyed this take on my personal favourite Jane Austen classic, Persuasion.

A blooming romance between Julia and Nathaniel is cut short by her tyrannical father; their time apart only serving to prove that distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Rachel Beresford’s narration was absolutely beautiful; the perfect touch to Sally Britton’s ever-entertaining penmanship.

This sweet regency romance gets all the stars from me.

Slower than first book

Can be read as stand alone novel.
Slower and frustrating with no one saying what they really want/feel/mean as is frequently the case in these historical novels.
