Something in the Heir by Suzanne Enoch ~ a Review

by MK French

Emmeline and William Pershing had a marriage of convenience to fulfill rules for an inheritance, and it's worked out well for them even though William longed for more from Emmeline. When Emmeline's grandfather summons them for his birthday, William discovers that Emmeline lied about having children to live in their home. They find two orphans to be their children, and the chaos that results brings them closer together.

A fun Regency rom-com, we get to see family life with young children. Any parent of an eight and five-year-old knows that it's an adventure, and our hero and heroine find that out the hard way. The carefully spun stories that Emmeline invented in letters and tracked in journals are a far cry from the reality of two young children that once stole on the streets of London to survive. They don't trust the Pershings right away, especially when all the adults in their lives beforehand tended to lie to them. Even their older brother did, and said brother's disappearance complicates matters. Will and Emmeline see each other in a new light, as they had fallen into a roommate situation, and once again see each other as fun and desirable. The children like the home they're living in and are old enough to work on a bargain with the Pershings. As much as they don't think they're good with children or parent material, they do very well and truly want the best for the children. 

I liked the look into the genteel family life of the period. Most stories involve young marriageable aged people, not ones already married. It's like a second chance romance, but they never actually broke up. They just drifted apart in the manner of married couples of the period, and never thought of having more. Creating a family, however temporary it was meant to be, added the complications that allowed them to see new sides of each other. As a romcom, we have a happily ever after, even when it seems like nothing will pull through. I had a fun afternoon reading this, and you will, too.
