Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Balogh's new Wescott series continues as a young woman deals with her father's death and a reversal of fortune.
With her parents' marriage declared bigamous, Camille Westcott is now illegitimate and without a title. Looking to eschew the trappings of her old life, she leaves London to teach at the Bath orphanage where her newly discovered half sister lived. But even as she settles in, she must sit for a portrait commissioned by her grandmother and endure an artist who riles her every nerve. An art teacher at the orphanage that was once his home, Joel Cunningham has been hired to paint the portrait of the haughty new teacher. But as Camille poses for Joel, their mutual contempt soon turns to desire. And it is only the bond between them that will allow them to weather the rough storm that lies ahead.

I at first couldn't believe I could like listening to audio, because I rather like sinking in my own thought and explore the words but Rosalyn's voice could really make someone want to listening to it over and over again. The story itself somehow pretty much like a replica of main characters but Mary Balogh did manage it well enough to make one curious and cannot let go by setting the book aside.

Second installment not nearly as good as the first

What did you like best about Someone to Hold? What did you like least?

Easy and relaxing listen, but the characters not as likeable and interesting as the first installment.

What could Mary Balogh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Let the old man live longer. And the butcher shop not only be mentioned in passing.

What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The joy to liste to her voice.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No, it would be too boring for a film.

Any additional comments?

The third book is due to come out autumn 2017 and I will probably give is a go because I like the planned main character. And I have to say that I am not particullarily fond of painting, so I can not judge, if the process of painting a portrait has been described in interesting detail for somebody more interested in that. For me it was rather boring.
