This is the third installment in Linore Rose Burkard’s continuing saga of the Forsythes and the Mornays. Beatrice Forsythe, sister to Ariana Mornay, is now seventeen years old, and determined to have a London season and find a wealthy husband.

But Ariana and Phillip have given up the high society lifestyle as they raise a family at their country estate, which foils Beatrice’s plans. She is hopeful to convince them to chaperone her in London. Then, an old acquaintance of both Ariana and Beatrice’s shows up. Mr. Peter O’Brien has arrived to procure the position of vicar at Glendover, owned by Mr. Mornay. Beatrice is not happy with this turn of events, as she is embarrassed that she rashly promised to marry Mr. O’Brien years earlier.

When Tristan Barton becomes a neighbor, he also becomes a prospective husband for Beatrice. But Ariana falls gravely ill, upsetting Beatrice’s plans, and she learns a life lesson she won’t soon forget.

This is another delightful inspirational Regency romance by Linore that pleases and satisfies as well as the first two have. Ariana and Phillip are more in love than ever, and Mr. O’Brien, a character I never much cared for in the other two books, has believably turned into a strong, admirable love interest for Beatrice.

As always, the setting and time period are as authentic and Jane Austen-ish as ever, becoming characters in their own right, and adding so much to the essence of the story. If you’ve read Linore’s other two books, you’ll certainly enjoy this one. But even if you haven’t, pick up a copy, and I guarantee you’ll be hooked.
