I don't generally care much for novellas, they often fall short of a full story. But Anna Harrington has managed to fulfill the promise of a fully told love affair. From the beginning to the end, the story was emotionally satisfying and read well. I was rooting for these characters from page one.
Second Chance at Love
Second Chances can happen and in this heartwarming novella, the past catches up with the future. Arabel Rowland the Laird's daughter is in love with Garrick McGuinness, the son of a blacksmith. They plan to elope but Arabel feels she cannot leave her family because her brother is in trouble. Ten years later they are thrown together again and each has inherited one half of Castle Highburn, the estate of Arabel's uncle. Garrick had once saved her uncle's life and this was his way of repaying him. As you can imagine after not seeing each other for all those years and Garrick now holding the title of Earl of Townsend it was almost an explosive situation. At least in emotions of which neither had forgotten their love for each other. But there had been a lot of resentment on Garrick's part that Arabel had chosen her family over him and he wanted revenge. This story gripped me from the beginning and showed how misunderstandings, betrayal and strong love can change the course of a life. But there is always hope and this is a story not to be missed. Well done Anna Harrington! If I were not a fan before ( which I was!), I would be now!! I read this from NetGallery.
