Saralee Etter delivers a holiday story of sweet romance and second chances. I loved Rosalind, I mean how could I not, she is a truly kind-hearted woman who experienced great loss and even greater changes yet she doesn't bemoan her faith she takes care of those worse off than she. Harry is a strong and genuine hero. His past shapes him but it is his actions and reactions to his present and future that won me over. The supporting cast of characters make a wonderful ensemble and my reactions to each of them are exactly what I believe the author was set on provoking. I loved the location and could easily visualize the setting and longed to visit. I'm a true sucker for wounded heroes and when you add in a heroine with a wounded heart I cannot wait to see just what some holiday healing can do for these two because these two truly deserve a Merry Christmas. If you are looking for a wonderful traditional Regency romance this is definitely a great choice.
Rosalind Joslin comes to England as a young widow determined not to be a burden to her new family so she makes herself useful making medicines for the poor. She believes she has made a place for herself but when the new heir arrives she begins to worry anew.
