2015 book 20

Mary Balogh's Only Enchanting
The fourth book in Balogh's Survivor's Club series is pretty charming--it centers on the guy who has a head injury in the war, and subsequently lost many of his memories (and gained a stammer). He's full of ironic good humor though, so of course he appreciates the practical young widow/artist he meets while visiting friends (the couple from the last book). I think what I most liked about this one is that a large portion takes place after their marriage, as they learn to be a married couple and work together to thwart title-grubbing exes and family gossip. I actually was hoping for even more of their happy married life admiring nature (or whatever) together, but there's actually a lengthy excerpt from the next book in the series at the end. Anyway, I liked this a lot. A-.
