She’s grieving her lost love. He’s searching for his lost niece. Can attraction overcome family loyalty in this enemies to lovers romance?
Hiding away in a tiny Yorkshire village, Harriet is grieving for her lost love. His family won’t talk to her and she can’t move on from from his death. All this changes when his daughter, Niamh, turns up on her doorstep, needing a sympathetic ear.
Tim thinks Harriet broke up his sister’s marriage all those years ago. His sister’s enemies are his enemies. When his niece runs away to Harriet’s house, he knows he has to get her back before his sister finds out. But that means talking with Harriet.
As they work together to console Niamh and get her home safely, Tim and Harriet become increasingly attracted to each other.
But with attraction comes guilt.
Can they overcome their respective loyalties and give in to love?
Even though Belonging is a short novella, oh my goodness does it pack a punch and its one book I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
For me I connected straightway with Niamh her father (Richard), has passed away and she is still coming to terms with the grief, this was me when my mother passed away, I kept saying to Niamh its okay to ask questions, because all you want to do is talk about them...but its also hard on the parent that is left behind and in this case Mel Niamh's mother doesn't want to talk about him, because she thought he had an affair and that's why they got divorced and also Mel has moved on.
And its for this reason that Niamh runs away to Yorkshire and gets in touch with Harriet her father's girlfriend, even though Harriet doesn't really want to see Niamh, because of the memories...but with time they both help each other come to terms with Richard's passing.
At times I was crying...but that was because Niamh got the answers she was looking for and she grew closer to her mother and Harriet found love.
I will give 5/5 stars.
I received this copy from the author in return for a honest review, all thoughts are my own.
