Title: Saving Marilee
Author: Annette K. Larsen
Publisher: Hidden Falls Publishing
Release Date: May 1, 2015
Marriage wasn’t bliss—not for Marilee. Instead of finding contentment with the handsome son of a sovereign duke, she found betrayal and neglect. And fear. A fear that finally lifts when her husband dies, freeing her from his domineering hand. But freedom alone can’t give her peace, and she must battle to regain her love for life, rebuild her happiness, and reclaim the ability to trust. When her charming neighbor intrudes on her quiet life, she must determine whether his interest is genuine, and whether he deserves the fragile bit of trust she has managed to scrape together. However, trusting is a risk, and she has vowed never to put herself at the mercy of someone else’s whims. Can Marilee take that chance, knowing how terribly she’s chosen before? She doesn’t know if she can survive being wrong again.
This story had a dark beginning. I knew it was necessary to get through that part so that Marilee could grow and overcome those things. It was still a little difficult to love that part. When she did start to grow beyond the pain of her first marriage, I loved seeing the change in her. There are very strong characters in this book that kept me guessing about the outcome. It was fun to get a peek into the lives of her sisters that were the stars of the previous books. I am looking forward to Larsen’s next book about Lorraina.
