San Francisco

Anton and Lenora Boudreaux have settled into an idyllic cottage overlooking San Francisco Bay. They’ve left trouble behind them and found happily ever after—family, friends, and a business that has every expectation of being successful. Until the Willow sails into port.

The captain of Willow, Jacob Lowell, is privy to secrets that threaten Lenora’s reputation and Anton’s life. When Anton sails to Seattle on a business enterprise, Jacob tries to blackmail Lenora, threatening to expose all he knows and forcing her to make decisions that will test her love of Anton and her life with him.

All Things Returned is the third book in the Anton and Lenora historical novella series.

All Things Returned by Ute Carbone is the third novella in her historical romance series, Anton & Lenora. The story takes place in San Francisco in 1852. I felt I was able to read the book as a stand-alone with just minor issues. The author did a good job of explaining some of the back story as needed throughout the novella. Though this is a short read, at just over 60 pages, I felt the story was deep and the plot thoroughly entertaining. I enjoyed the characters. Anton and Lenora Boudreaux are truly a couple in love, in spite of the many problems that plague them. This was a good read overall, and I would enjoy reading the other two books in this series, since I like the characters, the setting, and the author’s writing style. There is romance and also some elements of danger/suspense in the story, though not heavy suspense.


Ute is giving away 2 copies of books 1 and 2 in this series, Sweet Lenora and To The Wind.
