A well written and quick moving story I found myself immersed in the setting and the characters. Someone to Love is a great read for a fall afternoon curled up in your favorite chair. I personally can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Reviewed by Kathe Robin on Nov 30 2016

Through narrative and introspection, more than dialogue, the novel gifts readers with an understanding of both character and plot that an accomplished writer, like Balogh, can carry off with aplomb.
