    Eduardo De Souza who s 37 has been noticing a girl busking on the street with her guitar the few times he s been to town He thinks she s poor and is singing for money He goes to talk to her and to leave some money for her but she tells him she sings because she loves to and she s compelled to Her name is Marianne Lockwood 24 and she suffers from stagefright She s trying to sing to a small crowd to build up her confidence so she can sing to a larger crowd someday Eduardo leaves but eventually goes back to town and talks to Marianne again He invites her to eat with him and offers her a job as his housekeeper At first she turns him down Marianne has a home, but she is now a widow Her husband of six months Donal died from a terminal illness His grown up children resent the fact that Donal left his home to Marianne Eduardo points out the weather is getting colder and it will be hard for her to perform outside in the upcoming frigid temperatures Eduardo gives Marianne his phone number in case she changes her mind and they part ways again But after thinking about it at home Marianne suddenly decides it s time to be free again, no negative, self pitying thoughts So she turns over the house to Donal s children and decides to start fresh She accepts Eduado s job offer and moves to his home.Eduardo has also had some pain in his past Originally from Rio de Janeiro he is now living in the UK he s half British His wife died in a car accident that he was also in and he now walks with a cane, has a limp, and has had nine operations on his shattered leg He s been reclusive for the past two years But Marianne seems very good at getting Eduardo out of his shell and to start enjoying things again.This was a lovely romance I liked Eduardo and Marianne They were very likable characters who had similarities losing their spouses I liked the wintry snowy setting in the UK, and later, at the end, sunny Rio.This was a pleasant, sweet read.

    Heroine is a musician She lost her husband recently she is now lonely and poor She is actually a virgin widow since when she married her husband he was very old and sick Hero is a widower His wife died in a car accident but he was about to divorce her so it was not a happy marriage He now walks with a cane, he has a limp and he is broken and brooding Marianne makes him happy and whole again and they find true love and happiness Very sweet story I liked that heroine was pure, virginal and a sweetheart Hero was moody and kind of depressed until Marianne entered his life I loved their chemistry Needed a cute epilogue though.

    This was an okay read Not poorly written It just lacked any real tension or conflict There were a couple of good interesting ideas that could have been played up for tension For example the hero, Eduardo, sees the poorly dressed heroine playing guitar with a hat out on the side of the road and thinks she is maybe a 17 year old runaway or homeless girl I would have loved some tension about him supposedly falling in love with a teenager and being all angsty about it, but instead he finds out at their second meeting that she is 24 And as has been done to death in Harleys, she is the widow of a much older man who she married while he was sick and they never consummated their marriage He s all angsty about feeling responsible for his wife s death but sure enough it wasn t really his fault As soon as Eduardo and the heroine, Marianne, meet she saves him and they proceed to live HEA It was sweet and kept my interest enough for me to finish it but it didn t really stand out much.

    I m a sucker for a Jane Eyreish love story even if it is offered in a serial romance.

    Marianne Lockwood does things simply for the love of it, a free spirit, if you will, as she doesn t seem overly concerned about money However, she is trying to grow to do a little something in her life She wants to overcome a fear that she has Eduardo believes that she is destitute and he likes to help others, but tries to stay disconnected from people as well He has his own cross to bear Eduardo doesn t want pity which he views Marianne s compassion as, but he also feels drawn to her.This one wasn t overly angsty and I enjoyed that both Eduardo and Marianne seemed like of your everyday people Sure Eduardo had money and Marianne walked away from what she could have fought for, but in the end that were normal people Sure Marianne had a past that not most women would go in to w good intentions.but it worked for this story I didn t like that Eduardo s past ex had to be maligned slightly, and made to be the fall guy But overall the story was interesting, just not overly engaging almost chicken soupy for the soul
