Someone to Love book two in the Darling VT series is just as it seems Darling. I normally have a hard time with widow(er) novels where the spouse was a wonderful person. It's so easier to believe someone falling in love so soon (less than a decade) after the loss of their spouse if the spouse was a horrible person. In instances like this where it's just a couple of years afterwards and he was hopelessly in love with his wife it hard for me to accept he could fall in love with another so soon ( I know it happens IRL) but Ethan, the main character, and the widower also thinks the same thing; and that's where this becomes believable and good. Ethan is struggling internally with himself about his love for his deceased wife and Willow. Ethan isn't the only one struggling internally, Willow has her own issues that is keeping her from fully admitting to herself that she loves Ethan and is worthy of his love and accepting that love. Willow works hard to maintain the cool and carefree zen like appearance and the introduction to Ethan and his two adorable sons has her all up in a twist.
Overall, Darling, really the name of the series says it all. I love the easy flow of the books and just enough angst to make you tear up and want to smack them up side the head Gibbs style and say, "What's wrong with you!", and appropriately funny in all the right places.
