(Serendipity #2)

Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Regency Romance.
Publication: November 24th 2018 by HEA Publishing.
Miss Abigail Nash is no stranger to loneliness. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father's business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. When her dear friends offer to launch her into London society, her life takes a turn for the better. An instant success, with suitors, social engagements, and offers aplenty, it seems Abby will at last settle into the life of her dreams. But appearances aren't always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments.Just months into her marriage with a proclaimed darling of the ton, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, and increasing. Even more precarious are the feelings she’s developing for a man she shouldn’t love, a man the law prohibits her from marrying—her late husband’s brother, the Marquess of Brigston.

Reviewed by Kelly.

I thought the series was unusual where there is death first but I looked up the meaning of serendipity and it fits: the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. Where the first relationship ends not happily but a better one is found because of the people around it. In this book, Morgan (the first born) falls in love with his deceased brother’s wife. She also finds herself falling in love with him. She never thought that would be possible after the circumstances that brought her to this family in the first place.

But at this particular time, the law states that you can not marry your siblings spouse because they are, in the eyes of the law, your sibling now. Stupid law!! Anyway, I didn’t think it would be possible with every turn of events because nothing, NOTHING, was going there way. Secrets, laws, heirs, propriety, and the ton made things worse. Nothing is as miserable as finding the one person you love, get along with, and who gets you and find that it you can never be together. Well, when there is a will, there is a way, I suppose.

I loved Morgan and Abby’s characters. They made me laugh often! They are both competitive and good sports! They both have a dry sense of humor. I loved their family and friends. I also liked seeing more of the characters from the first book. There are a TON of great quotes. But they are kind of life quotes and as much as I love them, I would rather you see this book with happiness and laughter. The excerpt below is hilarious!!!

If you like books with impossible situations, books that make you laugh, sports, trees, beach, running your toes in the sand, honest people, good friends, balls (as in the dancing ones), horseback on a beach (cause that is what I would love to do), widowers, and of course finding that one person who totally gets you and whom you can talk to about anything then this might be a book for you!

When Brigston entered the kitchen, Abby’s back was partially to him, so she didn’t immediately see him. Her brow was furrowed in concentration as she whipped something in a bowl. She paused to lift the spoon, only to frown at the white liquid dripping from it.

“Are you certain this will thicken into a cream?” she asked.

A flash of irritation crossed Monsieur Roch’s face until he spotted Morgan and seemed to think better of it. He managed a patient tone in his accented French. “It takes time, my lady.”

Morgan stifled a chuckle as Abby examined another spoonful of the liquid. “I’ve been whipping it for several minutes, but it doesn’t seem even a little thicker to me. Have I forgotten to add something?”

“No,” said the cook in clipped tones.

Morgan stepped forward and leaned in close. “If your arm is tired—”

Abby jumped, and what liquid remained on the spoon splattered across Morgan’s face. She spun around, her eyes growing wide with horror when she saw what she’d done.

He wiped a dab from his nose and tasted it. “A little more sugar, perhaps?”

“Brigston! I’m so dreadfully sorry.” She dropped the spoon into the bowl and grabbed a rag from a nearby wash basin, dabbing it across his face.

“Not that rag!” cried the cook. “It was only just used to mop the floors.”

Abby dropped it as though it had burned her, and Morgan tried not to cringe at the thought of filthy water coating his face.

Monsieur Roch retrieved a clean rag and held it out to him, appearing apologetic. He flicked another irritated glance at Abby before returning to his work.

As Morgan wiped the cream from his face, he wondered what Abby would do or say next. Offer another fumbled apology? Make her excuses and flee? Pretend the incident never happened and return to her labors? He never knew what to expect from her.

Her face scarlet, she cleared her throat and lifted her adorably determined chin. “You are most welcome, my lord.”

He raised a brow. “For what, my lady?”

“I have heard that cream does wonders for one’s complexion, and it seems the rumors are correct. Your skin appears much . . . creamier.”
