"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."--

I enjoy Mary Balogh's romances quite a bit -- they are very old-fashioned, compared to some of the (unabashedly!) anachronistic historical romance that is published today, while Balogh's books, to me, feel like more modern (but not too modern) versions of Georgette Heyer. I'm thoroughly enjoying her Westcott series (of which this is the fifth book) -- the most complicated part of each novel is figuring out the family connections, because they're very complex and I manage to forget them in-between each book. But once you've got that figured out, you're good to go. This one is a fun installment -- it starts out as a Christmas romance (so, a good read for right now!) though it progresses later in the year, and features an older woman/younger man set-up, which is refreshing due to its rarity in historicals. While this isn't my favorite Balogh by any stretch (see the Bedwyn Saga for all of her best work!), it was the perfect read for a recent plane ride, and it receives bonus points for making this cold-hearted librarian cry.

Up to "Someone to Trust" by Mary Balogh - there was always a LARGE PRINT version available. Is the fact she has a different publisher for above novel the reason this novel is not offered in LARGE PRINT?
