This is the start of Theresa Romain's new Matchmaker trilogy and I enjoyed it just as much as her other works. Frances was such a refreshing heroine with her quiet strength and decisive talk. I really wished she had just told Henry the truth about the letters much sooner than she did though and I thought her secrets were also refreshing from what I have read before and thought the resolution to them was handled well (in fact, how Henry deals with it made me tear up a bit!). Henry is dealing with his own after effects of war and finds his well meaning, forgiving family a bit off putting. Frances challenges him to move past the past and strive towards new beginnings and shows him that he still has all the respect he had before the war. Overall I really enjoyed this book however it was a bit slow in places and heavy on details in parts for my taste but the characters with their vibrant. well written natures brought the book to a solid conclusion. Subtle humor, passionate encounters and heartfelt letters made this a very lovely read!
