Corbin Jonquil is a man who has a hard time expressing himself. He becomes awkward and speaks in broken sentences. His condition is amplifies when a lovely widow moves in to the residence closest to his home. She immediately catches his attention and his interest.

Mrs. Clara Bentford is fleeing her past. She wants to begin a new life away from the memories and the presence of a man who wants to hurt her, her daughter, and her nephew. She hopes that this town will provide the shelter and peace that she desires.

I loved the advice that Corbin's family gave him to get Clara's attention. It was funny when he tried things he wasn't comfortable with. I appreciated the message that it's best to be yourself. People will like you when you are your true self and not trying to be someone else.

This book is very easy to read. It pulls you into the story and keeps your mind there. It was fun to catch up with the Jonquil's. This is the third book featuring a member of the family. While it is part of a series, they can be read alone. I have only read the first and now the third and didn't feel lost or that I was missing keys to the plot.

If you want a great book to read, you can't go wrong with reading one by Sarah M. Eden. She does a great job at writing the story and leaving you feeling satisfied when you finish. ( )

Book Three: The Jonquil Brothers Series. Life has taught Clara Bentford that men are not to be trusted. She keeps her distance from everyone, finding security in isolation. But she can't seem to keep herself from noticing her handsome and baffling neighbor, Corbin Jonquil. Could he really be so different from every other man she's known? By far the quietest of the Jonquil Brothers, Corbin has tended to go unnoticed, content to fade into the background. But when he falls for Clara Bentford, a lovely young widow who doesn't even realize he exists, Corbin has to learn to stand out. Soon his family decides to help him win his fair lady, and Corbin has a Jonquil-sized disaster on his hands.
