I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance by Laurie Benson today. Also a big thank you to the author for my lovely review copy! First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
She’s played Cupid for others
Now she’s met her own unlikely match!
Widowed society matchmaker Mrs. Clara Sommersby thinks handsome, self-made businessman Mr. William Lane is just the man for her neighbor’s overlooked daughter. He’s successful and confident, if somewhat emotionally distant, until suddenly—shockingly—his attention turns to Clara herself! She thought her days of romance were over, but is this younger man intent on giving her a second chance?
Well we have come to the last book in The Sommersby Bride Series and I can’t believe that it’s over. This series has been perfect and I’ve loved every single moment in these books. Although I have to admit that when I heard we would be getting Clara’s story I may have done a little happy dance 😉
I loved Clara’s story from the setting of Bath to the characters everything just seemed to fall into place and I found myself not wanting to put this book down but also sad that I would finish it and that everything would be over! Now even though Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance is part of a series it works perfectly well as a standalone so please don’t let that worry you. However I have to recommend the entire series especially if you are a fan of historical romance!
In this book we meet Clara who having been widowed years earlier finds herself drawn to a visitor to Bath. William Lane is there on business and once their paths cross a gorgeous chemistry begins to grow that was just completely sighworthy! There is an age difference as Clara is older than William and I found this refreshing as it added a different aspect to the story. The romance is built beautifully with a realistic feel as it gave me plenty of time to get to know the characters along with seeing the chemistry between the pair increase.
With a little bit of matchmaking, visits from characters that I have grown to love and of course a wonderful romance. Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance has a whole lot of heart, making me both smile and sigh at such a gorgeous couple!
