Publisher's Summary

Miss Abigail Nash is no stranger to loneliness. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father's business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. When her dear friends offer to launch her into London society, her life takes a turn for the better. An instant success, with suitors, social engagements, and offers aplenty, it seems Abby will at last settle into the life of her dreams. But appearances aren't always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments. Just months into her marriage with a proclaimed darling of the ton, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, and increasing. Even more precarious are the feelings she’s developing for a man she shouldn’t love, a man the law prohibits her from marrying - her late husband’s brother, the Marquess of Brigston.

A Bittersweet Love Story

WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Miss Abigail Nash is no stranger to loneliness. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father's business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. When her dear friends offer to launch her into London society, her life takes a turn for the better. An instant success, with suitors, social engagements, and offers aplenty, it seems Abby will at last settle into the life of her dreams. But appearances aren't always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments. Just months into her marriage with a proclaimed darling of the ton, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, and increasing. Even more precarious are the feelings she’s developing for a man she shouldn’t love, a man the law prohibits her from marrying—her late husband’s brother, the Marquess of Brigston.

MY TAKE
Having just read Serendipity #1, I anticipated another lighthearted romance. This tale is much darker. It also has a bittersweetness that even as I write this makes my eyes sting. What a good man Abby married. She didn't have a chance to get to know Jasper very well before she loses him to an accident, but I love that even with him gone his presence is still felt.

I enjoyed the growing relationship between Abby and Jasper's older brother Morgan. This was the fun in the story that could otherwise have been a little dismal.

The conflict of not being allowed to marry because they are considered "brother and sister" even though they shared no blood is a great one and something I was aware of because of having read another book that touched on this issue. I find it ironic that this real law was in place that prevented unrelated people from marrying yet first cousins could wed.

I thought I had a resolution figured out, but Anderson took it another direction that was better.

Helen Taylor did a great job with the narration.

May Be Better than the First

Great, sweet story with only a few unsavory moments, and those not described in lurid terms. Mild romance without any overt or graphic suggestions or activities, which of course is a rare thing to find. And Helen Taylor does a splendid job of narrating as usual.

Excellent Second in Series

The continuation on the Serendipity series flowed well without the repetition of some stories. When the characters from the first book showed up, it felt like old friends. The next in the series is hinted at but Racheal Anderson doesn’t leave the reader hanging. Helen Taylor is an excellent Narrator.

Refreshing

Rachael Anderson is an excellent writer. I am glad I found her few writers are her equal. Helen Taylor is also an excellent narrator. I could listen to her all day. She was a perfect match for the book. The story was a light, refreshing read.

Wonderful book

Great story twist... so unexpected. I’m looking forward to book 3. I’m sure it’ll be thrilling and not predictable. Great narration... it makes you love the story even more.

Great story

I enjoyed this story more than the first in the series. The characters were more developed, and I enjoyed the complexities of their characters, values and how their relationships grow over time. It isn’t a typical plot for this style of romance novel and I think the more serious aspects of the plot were well executed. I highly recommend this book to others.
