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.

Second installment not nearly as good as the first
Easy and relaxing listen, but the characters not as likeable and interesting as the first installment.
Let the old man live longer. And the butcher shop not only be mentioned in passing.
The joy to liste to her voice.
No, it would be too boring for a film.
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.
