This book took me longer to get into than Englishwoman in Paris. I’m not sure why, maybe because I had become quite invested in the characters and the romance from that book, it just took me some time to work out who was who and where they were fitting in to the plot. Once I did get my rhythm, I settled back to enjoy the fabulous setting of New York. I was fascinated by the use of Gramercy Park which is a private park in Manhattan only used by authorised key holders from the properties surrounding the park. And it’s in this park that Matti Bianchi first sets his sights on a gorgeous jogger, whom he later finds out is a music teacher at his daughter Evelyn’s music school. What follows is a heartwarming romance, journey of self discovery for both of them learning to love again. I adored Evelyn especially and found her relationship with her father to be poignant without being sickly sweet.
Jenny O’Brien has a soft and engaging writing style that helps you to connect with her characters as they develop. You just can’t help wanting a perfect “happy ever after” ending for them all. So settle down and relax into this feel good romance, it’s like a box of chocolates in a book!
Matti Bianchi is a single parent and lawyer in one of the most prestigious and cut-throat asset stripping firms in the city. His teenage daughter has started teasing him about middle age spread and Matti starts jogging in Gramercy Park to appease his daughter. Whilst back in his apartment that overlooks the park he spots a young woman with long auburn hair that he can’t help but be drawn to. This young woman happens to be Cara and during a music performance at his daughter’s school he sees this mystery girl and makes the connection.
The school is running a trip to London with a select few of the girls and Evelyn, Matti’s daughter is invited. As Matti has business in London he tags along with the school excursion. Cara and Matti are drawn together through mutual circumstances at first. These moments give Matti time to get to know Cara but the pain from her past which is still evident is hard to conceal.
Cara is fighting with her emotions over Matti, is it too soon since her husband’s death to find and accept love again? She is also fighting with her physical scars and what limitations it has left her with. Can Cara place her belief in someone to help her with her scars both emotionally and physically? Will Matti’s business involvement in London hinder his developing feelings for Cara?
This was a lovely story that was emotive with all the heart wrenching history from the characters still very evident. It was also endearing, inspiring and romantic taking you on a journey of self-discovering, encouragement, lust and love. Englishwoman in Manhattan is a standalone story in the ‘Englishwoman in’ series. Characters from Englishwoman in Paris do crop up and to fully appreciate and enjoy the series I would encourage you to read both books in order.
