During a rare white Christmas at Brambledean Court, the widow Elizabeth, Lady Overfield, defies convention by falling in love with a younger man in the latest novel in the Westcott series.

After her husband's passing, Elizabeth Overfield decides that she must enter into another suitable marriage. That, however, is the last thing on her mind when she meets Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges, at the Westcott Christmas house party. She simply enjoys his company as they listen to carolers on Christmas Eve, walk home from church together on Christmas morning, and engage in a spirited snowball fight in the afternoon. Both are surprised when their sled topples them into a snowbank and they end up sharing an unexpected kiss. They know there is no question of any relationship between them, for she is nine years older than he.

They return to London the following Season, both committed to finding other, more suitable matches. Still they agree to share one waltz at each ball they attend. This innocuous agreement proves to be one that will topple their worlds, as each dance steadily ensnares them in a romance that forces the two to question what they are willing to sacrifice for love. . . .

Advance Galley Reviews

I am an nabashed Balogh fan! Not so much for the story lines (they are pretty much all alike!) but more for her thoughtful understanding of the characters she invents and how most of them see their world. The plots are predictable: Introduction, a glimpse of complication to come, the actual complication, a further complication, the resolution and happy ending! Someone to Trust does not disappoint! We have already met and liked Elizabeth in a prior novel. This story, however is hers! The twist (complication!) is that she falls in love with a much younger man. Be sssured the two of them work it out!
