the mother finds love

Someone to Care (A Westcott Novel) - Mary Balogh

So when the Earl of Riverdale died it was discovered that he had a bigamus marraige.  This is a tale of his one-time countess Viola who is trying to get a sense of herself after allthe fuss and noise has died down.  She bumps into the Marquess of Dorchester, Marcel Lamarr, whom she was attracted to before.  So they run away and have some fun, only their families find them and they're engaged suddenly.

 

There was a lot of assumption and a lot of pearl clutching by various parties but there was also a lot of romance and two characters who needed each other.

 

There were times where it dragged a bit and where things felt a little forced but overall it was entertaining.
