The fourth book in a series I have loved so far, the Westcott Family series by Mary Balogh, has been announced to be released in May, 2018.
Not only do I love the cover, but the plot is really exciting. Why? Because this is about the *mother* of other heroes and heroines in the series.

Since she is being forced to stay for a day and night, she goes to the village fair with him and impulsively gives in to his suggestion that they run away together for a while—a brief respite from their lives of duty and responsibility. What they discover together is the last thing Viola would have ever expected…
