A Review of Well Acquainted by Laney Hatcher:

November 16, 2022 by in category Apples & Oranges by Marianne H. Donley, Spotlight

Review

Well Acquainted

Laney Hatcher

  • ASIN : ‎ B0B7W36RY7
  • ISBN-13: ‎978-1959097235
  • Publisher: ‎Smartypants Romance (October 27, 2022)
  • Publication date : ‎October 27, 2022


Well Acquainted is the second novel in Laney Hatcher’s London Ladies Embroidery series from the Smartypants Romance Out of this World Penny Reid Book Universe.


Widowed doctor, Eliza Morgan’s past comes crashing into her medical clinic when Nicolas (aka Silas Viso an acclaimed actor) brings young Angelica for evaluation. It’s a toss up who is more surprised, yet it’s clear from page one that they still love each other. But there are so many complications: Their shared tragic past. Angelica and her mother. Eliza’s father. Nicholas’ family. Even their professions, a “lady” doctor and an actor—both not quite proper for the time—stand in their way.


Nicolas, ever charming and sure of himself, still wants a life with Eliza. She’s much harder to convince.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Well Acquainted. It was lovely seeing Elizabeth and Nico translated to historical London. Ms. Hatcher was very clever with the plot of her re-imagined story. She developed significant reasons for the characters to act as they did—even the villain—that was true to the time period.
If you enjoy Penny Reid’s Knitting in the City series and also love historical romance, then Well Acquainted should be on your reading list. You won’t regret it.


I received a copy of Well Acquainted from Laney Hatcher and Smartypants Romance in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Some things are better left in the past, but Eliza has spent years running from hers. When the man who upended her life re-enters it in the most unexpected way, Eliza must decide if reacquainting herself with Nicolas is worth the heartache. He’s charming and irritating and makes her realize there is so much more than the life she’s been living. But first she must confront her painful past if she and Nicolas have any hope for a future.

★ ★ BLURB ★ ★

He needs to get her out of his system. Just once…

Hank Weller doesn’t help people. He leaves that do-gooder nonsense to his best friend, Beau Winston. Hank does what he wants, when he wants, with whomever he wants—and Hank does not want to hire Charlotte Mitchell to be an exotic dancer at his club, The Pink Pony. Sure, he can’t help noticing the dips and curves of her, how shrewd, smart, and funny she is, the fire in her hazel eyes. He’s always noticed. She’d probably draw a crowd and entice the regulars. But after Charlotte’s messy, public divorce made Hank’s club out to be the culprit—and made her the single mother of four kids—he doesn’t need or want any additional bad press courtesy of Charlotte Mitchell. Or the distraction. Unfortunately for him, the town’s prettiest charity case doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the words nopeno, and never.

Charlotte Mitchell doesn’t much like Hank Weller. Once upon a time, she used to. Years ago, she liked him a whole heckofalot despite other folks in town labeling him as “eccentric” and “nonconformist,” which were polite southern alternatives to “filthy rich” and “self-centered douchebag.” Her opinion of him changed dramatically after he volunteered to be her date to junior prom and then promptly stood her up. They haven’t so much as acknowledged each other in over a decade. But a sudden family emergency means Charlotte needs access to Hank’s club ASAP.  Unfortunately for her, the narcissistic fancy-pants doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the words helpgenerosity, and compassion.

But he’s about to find himself schooled. Charlotte is going to teach Hank a lesson once and for all about basic human decency, whether he likes it or not.

Spoiler alert. . . he likes it. ��
