Someone to Care by Mary Balogh

Someone to Care by Mary Balogh is the forth novel in the Westcott Series, after Someone to Love, Someone to Hold, Someone to Wed, and followed by Someone to Trust, a book that should be published these days.
See here the other books I’ve reviewed by her, including the ones in this series.

After the death of Humphrey Westcott, his wife discovers that their marriage was not legal, thus she becomes once more Viola Kingsley. On her way home alone from Bath, she meets an adventurous aristocrat at a country inn. They go together at the village fair, and, impulsively, gives in to his suggestion that they run away together for a while; as a brief respite from their lives of duty and responsibility.

I loved the book. Unlike most other romantic novels, both Viola and Marcel are in their 40s (he is 39, turns 40 in the book). This makes their story a bit different. The book is wonderful, light, romantic, heart-warming, just the thing if you like this sort of books at this time of year.
