ARC Review of Someone to Hold by Mary Balogh


The second book in The Wescott Series takes us back to the Orphanage for another wonderful story.  We met both of the main characters who were a intricate part of the first book.  Joel is the young man who grew up in the orphanage with Anna in the first book and Camille is Anna's half sister.

Joel is an artist and a orphan and has never thought that he would ever find out who he was and where he came from.  One day he is summoned to a mansion by a man he has never heard of.  He thought he was there to discuss a proposal to paint a portrait.  What he finds out changes his whole world.

Camille was brought up a lady who never questioned anything that happened in her life.  She listened to her parents and became everything that a nobleman would want in a wife.  She never thought about herself or what she desired out of life.
Then her life is turned upside down and will never be the same again.

This is a story of two people from vastly different backgrounds that find common ground in each other as their worlds are coming apart.

The reason that I love Mary's books so much is that you don't have to ride the emotional roller coaster.   Her characters have character.  They talk to each other about what they are feeling.  Mary gives you amazing insight into who they are with vivid and amazing detail.  If you want to read beautiful love stories that will make you laugh and cry, Mary is the author for you.

Received a complimentary copy for an honest review.
