    Someone to Wed by Mary Balogh is a 2017 Berkley publication. A tender, but redemptive love story, that gave me so many feels!While this series has been quality reading up to this point, as is most anything Mary Bologh pens, I was still suffering a bit of a book hangover from the ‘Survivor’ series, which was absolutely amazing. Up to this point the first two books in the Wescott series have failed to really grab me in the same way. However, th...

    A lovely Regency romance, to be published in November, that I downed whole in one evening. It's by one of the better-known authors in the field, Mary Balogh. The unique plot point here is that the heroine, Wren, has a large purple birthmark on one side of her face that she considers disfiguring, and she's been a hermit for many years, always wearing a veil in public. Notwithstanding that, she's also an intelligent, accomplished businesswoman who'...

    What would you do if you had a big mark on your face? When I was young even having a pimple was a huge tragedy!Sometimes I watch a TV show where plastic surgeons remove scars from peoples' faces and here I felt sad that such an option was not available to Wren. I don't even know if modern medicine could help her...I admired Wren at the end of the book very much! I don't know if I would have such courage! And I loved Alexander (and his family too!...

    Mary Balogh is my comfort read. She waves her magic and creates emotionally satisfying world of complex relationships between strong, likable and honorable characters without relying too much on evil villains or annoying misunderstandings. Her stories tend to have more characters’ introspection as opposed to melt downs or limitless arguments. The story, third in the series, is no exception and I would say it’s my favorite in the series. I lov...

    Oh, this book! I just loved it so much! Since Wren has lost her aunt and uncle, Wren has been lonely. She wants a marriage and hopes for all that comes with it: respect, trust, affection, and children. As a wealthy woman she sets out to buy a husband, since she doesn’t think she could acquire one any other way. She’s heard of Alexander Westcott’s predicament, inheriting the title of Earl of Riverdale with the massive estate of Brambledean, ...

    This is third in a series and I highly recommend that you read them in order. The extended family is broad and a lot of them show up in all the stories and that can be confusing if you’re coming into that newly here. All the books are outstanding, so at least starting at the beginning shouldn’t be a burden.This one became my favorite, no question. And it has been a whole week since I finished, so I’m afraid this review won’t be as good as...

    There's plenty to like in Someone to Wed, Mary Balogh's third installment in her Westcott series. It's a fantastic MOC story, something that Mary Balogh does really well. Great, well-developed characters. Wren is such a strong, layered character. She knows what she wants and while she presents this cold and aloof behavior on the outside, her heart is passionate. But years of self-imposed seclusion and loneliness did a number of her, which made he...

    I won't rehash my review of the book, which is HERE.The audio version - narrated by the incomparable Rosalyn Landor - is every bit as enjoyable as the print version - possibly even moreso given the extra emotional nuance conveyed by Ms. Landor, who is just brilliant at getting into the heads of the characters she narrates.Highly recommended.
