Mary, I have been devouring your books, and not much else, since holiday time last year. I went through all the Westcott series in a heartbeat. Avery reminds me of the Scarlet Pimpernel and he had me at hello. But then, I wanted the artist, Joel. The men really are so lovable, in their myriad ways. I’ve just finished the boarding school ladies (Simply series). I appreciate that all of your characters are flawed in some way — even if it’s just their perceived situation — and yet they rise above with each other’s help and acceptance. Thank you for teaching me what romantic love looks and feels like, and for reminding me to believe in it.
