It's Beatrix's turn!

The Hathaway family is an unconventional family for the time, 1850s England, filled with love and amusement toward and with each other. This book is the fifth/last in the family series, featuring the youngest sister Beatrix. Beatrix loves animals and rescuing animals, so she has added a menagerie of pets to the Ramsey House which ramble about in the story adding many laughs. Beatrix falls in love with Captain Phelan, through a deceptive correspondance while he is in the Crimean War. Great history on this war and the affects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. LK writes dialogue between characters with much humor. She also makes the possessive love relationships endearing for all characters. Like all the Hathaways the love relationship is electric. Yet, it is more than a love story, Love in the Afternoon, also takes the reader inside the grief cycle, family dynamics, abandonment issues, and commitment. There are many bumps in the road you appreciate but everything gets stitched together nicely by the last chapter. It is a sweet and fun read. The narrator does a great job too!

Great Continuation!

LK has done a great job with the Hathaway series, and this installment is no exception. I recommend you start at the beginning to get a firm grasp of the characters that make up the rest of the family. If you like historical romance with witty dialogue, this series will not disappoint!
