Mrs. Sartin’s Secretary
Mr. Matthew Bellamy/Mrs. Amelia Sartin
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
Mrs. Amelia Sartin helms her late husband’s company and implicitly trusts her Secretary, Matthew Bellamy. However, as she cedes company control to her heir, can Bellamy persuade Amelia he is one thing she cannot leave behind?
This is actually the first book I’ve had the pleasure of reading from Ms. LaCapra. Mrs. Sartin’s Secretary is book #1.5 of Ms. LaCapra’s newest series “Lords of Chance” with #2 “Heart’s Desire” coming out soon. That book will feature Lord Markham who played a role in this book.
Amelia and Matthew have known each other for over a decade. Matthew came to work for her husband George at the age of seventeen as his secretary. So when Amelia starts to recognize Matthew as the handsome man he is, she’s a little alarmed. As for Matthew, his feelings of esteem for Amelia has grown into something more. But being her employee holds him back.
I genuinely liked Amelia and Matthew and liked that Amelia was older than Matthew by ten years. It was a refreshing change from the usual storyline of the man being older than the woman. Amelia’s reluctance and fear of them as a couple was understandable. I felt they made a sweet couple and was rooting for them to find a way to overcome the obstacles between them. It was a great enjoyable read that I would definitely recommend!
I enjoyed Ms. LaCapra’s writing style and will definitely be adding her books to my future reading list!
