5 stars

Someone to Trust is another fabulous installment in Mary Balogh’s beautiful Westcott series, bringing love to people who have faced heartache. And it was all the more rewarding, because I had grown to love Elizabeth over the course of the past four books, and hoped that she would someday find someone who would make her happy, given all the heartache she endured at the hands of her first husband.

And I was not disappointed. I love how both she and Colin have been betrayed in their past and have had trust issues with those close to them, and this is what binds them together, in addition to the physical attraction.

I’m also glad we got closure (somewhat) with Colin and Wren’s mother, as the situation was not fully addressed in Someone to Wed. While I would have preferred to see Lady Hodges get her just deserts for the way she treated her children, I can respect that she is their mother and that Colin wins by not giving into her whims.

I would recommend this to fans of historical romance, as there really are few authors who write true and authentic-feeling historical romance better than Mary Balogh.
