Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
In the second installment of her contemporary Austen-inspired series Abigail Reynolds brings readers back to the charming seaside village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts and paints a love story full of passion and pathos. A story about second chances, finding happiness, and healing. In Morning Light readers are introduced to Annie Wright, a widowed young woman with a sad and painful past, and Jeremy Matthiesen, a man who, after ten years of forced separation, is back again in Annie’s life and trying to tear down the barriers that surround her heart.
Since Annie is neighbors with Cassie and Calder (the hero and heroine from Pemberley By the Sea/The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice) readers can expect to see a lot of them and the Westing clan in this novel. I enjoyed “staying in touch” with Cassie and Calder as well as witnessing the new drama and developments in their lives. I found that it worked well to have a second prominent story-line in this novel and that Abigail Reynolds divided her time between the two couples quite successfully and skillfully.
