About Coming Home to Bellingham
What begins as a pleasant holiday with a new friend in Brighton quickly turns to devastation for Anabelle Milton when she receives the tragic news: her parents are dead. Turned out of the only home she’s ever known, Anabelle is sent to live with an aunt and uncle who are strangers to her. Heartbroken, she arrives at Bellingham Cottage, a cozy home on the sprawling grounds of the Bellingham estate, to find an unexpectedly warm welcome—not only from her own family but also from the family of their aristocratic neighbors, Lord and Lady Bellingham.
Anabelle soon attracts the attention of the heirs of Bellingham—brothers who, though connected by blood, could not be more different. As she slowly begins to distance herself from the polite and obedient young woman her mother trained her to be, Anabelle is free for the first time to choose her own path. She knows she must be true to herself, even if it means risking unrequited love—but can she trust that the gentleman who has stolen her heart will not break it?
I’m always happy to read a great Regency romance and this is one of those! I loved this debut author’s first book. It’s got great characters, and a great plot. It left me wanting more.
This one features Annabelle. It’s really unique, because her parents die in the first chapter when she’s away from home. This leaves her floundering. She eventually is able to go live with her aunt and uncle, who she doesn’t remember at Bellingham.
I enjoyed Annabelle’s character. She has a hard time not committing social faux pas. And these left me laughing, at least a little. It was kind of obvious that she was a little embarrassed by her mistakes. But we all make them.
The heirs of Bellingham were interesting. Peter is the first one we meet. He’s very serious and Annabelle is not always sure what to think of him. Then there’s Nathan. He’s one of those men that all women try to stay away from. Unfortunately, he made sure Annabelle couldn’t. She was his favorite target. Lastly is Robert. I loved the easy friendship that Annabelle and Robert shared.
The plot of this one is interesting. The author did a great job weaving her story. I didn’t want to put this one down!
I was sent an e-copy of Coming Home to Bellingham as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
