I have read a few of Sally MacKenzie books and find that I like her style of writing. This is a short read / story that I took to be a introduction to a series (Spinster's House). I do love a short read to and love to get the first book in a series, so no brainer for me that I would love this book. Belle is a little older than the Hero but I didn't find that a problem for me. I would recommend this book for any romance reader!
