Cecilia Goodhue is a schoolteacher with a past, living with her sister and her husband in a tiny English village. Resigned to a quiet life, Cecilia is surprised when she finds out that her young cousin has run off with a man of no means.
Cecilia had once been a teenaged girl who also fell for a young man’s charms—only to be devastated by his betrayal. Determined to not let her cousin meet the same fate, she heads off to London to but is shocked when her investigation leads her right to the front door of the very man who broke her heart: Theo Hudson.
Together, they reluctantly embark on finding her cousin and returning her to her family. During their searching in London, it soon becomes clear that they both remember their short-lived romance differently and perhaps now, years later, they have a fresh chance at love.
There’s not much to say about the premise of the story as the blurb says it so well. This was a cute story though. There wasn’t a lot of angst, there wasn’t a lot of drama and it was a sweet reunion story. Once Cecilia and Theo had figured out that they’d been lied to by their fathers ten years earlier about why the other wanted to marry them, all was well.
Parts of the story were pretty funny and I enjoyed laughing throughout the book. I haven’t read books 1 & 2 in this series but I didn’t feel that I needed to in order to enjoy this novella.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
