    An extremely pleasant romance novel. Which I intend, perhaps, as faint praise, but in no sense the damning sort. ...

    Mary Balogh remains one of my auto-buys because I like how she teases out and works with a lot of different types of themes in her romances. In the first Wescott Family novel Someone to Love (my hands down favorite of the series so far still), the background story of one man's bigam...

    *ARC received for an honest review* I enjoy Mary Balogh?s books. There?s a lot of character focus. Plenty of plot. Frequently the hero or heroine has something emotional to overcome. There?s a sweetness to the healing in her books. I struggled to see Gil and Abigail as a c...

    This is sixth in a series and a lot of characters from the extended Westcott family are important characters in this one. I highly recommend reading these in order. This is fast becoming my favorite romance series of all time. Five of the six books so far have been personal five-sta...

    Mary Balogh has outdone herself in Someone to Honor, the 6th Westcott book. Abigail Westcott?s story begins three years after Someone to Trust, Elizabeth and Colin?s romance. Despite spending the intervening years with her mother, Viola, who is married to the fashionable Marquess o...

    Without knowing the author in advance, I could open any book and immediately know I am reading a book by Mary Balogh. She has such a distinctive, unique style of writing which always draws me in. The story is never rushed. Instead, you are taken upon a leisurely journey where you learn...

    Mary Balogh's Wescott series is a dependable four star series and the trend continues with Someone to Honor. There are other historical authors I enjoy more but Mary has a great way of writing her heroines to be independent and truly likable which continues to bring me back for more. ...

    For some reason I couldn't finish this one. I couldn't connect to the main couple and Gil was boring me to death. I also found the whole business around his daughter tedious and distracting. ...

    I was welcomed back to the Regency England world of the unconventional Westcott family who endured a great family scandal and it made them rally and show an inner strength most didn't know they possessed. I enjoy this series of a family who take their turns finding love and happiness i...

    4.5 Stars You don?t need to read the previous books to enjoy Someone to Honor, but there are quite a few characters/couples that show up from previous installments that won?t mean much to you if you don?t. Also, you wouldn?t feel original big shock that Abigail and her famil...

    I really liked this. It was a slow book (which I knew getting into this because this is not my first Balogh) but it was well done. I've always liked Abigail - from the moment we met her at the age of 16 in book 1 when her entire world collapsed around her like a wooden building. And...

    Another winner from Balogh! Balogh brought her A game to Someone to Honor. I absolutely adored this historical romance; it has everything that I love about Balogh in it - complex characters, a truly realistic obstacle to overcome, and a lovely, quiet, emotional romance. Abby and Gil...

    Really, about 3.5, rounded up, even though it?s a bit dull. Mary Balogh gives the reader a subtle story of two people who feel that they never fit in finding not only one another but also their dreamed-of places in the world. ...

    Originally published at Reading Reality The entire Westcott series is the story of one family making lemonade out of what initially were some rather bitter lemons ? with no sugar at all. Humphrey Westcott is dead, to begin with. And that?s a good thing for him, because if he ...

    I hate to say it, but Mary Balogh has lost her touch. This is the lowest rating I have given to any of her books, including the not so polished earlier books. I don't know what happened, but in recent years, her novels have gotten more and more boring, less and less romantic, an...

    Heyyyyy Westcott family addicts!!!! I was so anxiously waiting to get my hands on this next book that I literally stopped reading everything else to start this book. Mary Balough has delivered another beautiful leading lady who finds her perfect match in the most unlikely place. I was ...

    3.5 stars, rounded up. Lt Col. Gilbert "Gil" Bennington returns to England with Harry Westcott. Harry barely survived Waterloo and now almost 2 years later, he is still weak and ill - he asks Gil to stay with him in England until he recovers, Gil agrees and then wishes he hadn't whe...

    The writing was lovely, as always. Balogh does characterization so well. The thing that the H/h most wanted was just to be understood.. I felt the emotions through the pages and there were several moments that were very touching. (Their wedding was particularly romantic to read about) ...

    Well written BUT boring and dull in every other way. Unlikeable heroine, lackluster plot, monotonous rendition based on self-pity, bland attraction and prosaic sex. I gave up by chapter 6 and then skimmed to finish only because its Balogh. Next book features the dead-beat father of thi...

    Mary Balogh has the ability to create relationships between characters that's based on desirable traits and understanding between the hero and heroine, not just sexual desire. So her stories have the strength to strongly pull on my heart strings. Someone to Honor did this again. This i...

    Charming... Settling down with a Mary Balogh novel is like coming home on a winter?s day and snuggling by the fireside sipping on hot tea. Relaxing, refreshing and oh so restorative. The Westcotts are such a remarkable family. One must pay attention from the first to understan...

    Eh. It's standard Balogh fare: lots of misery and angst for the MCs (the poor dears never seem to enjoy themselves), meandering plot that's still enjoyable, dukes with quizzing glasses (seriously, Balogh loves a duke with a quizzing glass), enemies-to-lovers where they get off on the w...
