Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh

Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh is the 5th book in the Westcott series. I was looking forward to reading this book, as I loved both characters from the other books in the series. This is the story of Elizabeth, Lady Overfield, a widow and Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges.
See here all the books in the series and a list of other series by Mary Balogh that I’ve reviewed.

Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh

During a white Christmas at Brambledean Court, Elizabeth’s brother Alexander and his wife Wren are hosting the Christmas celebrations. One of the guests is Wren’s brother, Colin. Colin is nine years her junior and this makes the story a bit different.

Another thing that makes the story different is that both of them have problems and secrets. They agree that they will dance one waltz at each ball they attend and that is an important part of the drama that will enfold later in the book. I loved the book, both characters are lovely and likeable.

If you want to read the book, you don’t have to read the rest in the series although those are really nice too.

  • Sounds like some lovely light period drama, I’ll have to add it to my TBR list! Knowing there are others in the series, I’d have to read those first!
