Published May 31, 2011 by Avon
Marcus Holroyd, Earl of Chatteris, has dearly missed spending time with his best friend’s family. Since Daniel’s flight from danger he has been mostly alone. All of that changes during a house party in the country where Marcus stumbles upon Honoria’s marriage scheme.
Yes, they both love sweets and have known each other since they were kids but will that be enough to get them through the horror that is the Smythe-Smith musicale?

Honoria Smythe-Smith needs a husband, if for no other reason that to escape her yearly duty as a violinist in the Smythe-Smith musicale. Honoria really is no good on the instrument, but family duty must come above else. When she runs into childhood friend Marcus Holroyd, she is shocked to discover their mutual attraction. Determined not to pursue the man who nicknamed her ‘Bug’, she sets her sights on another.
It will take more than chocolate cake to bring these two together…
I adored the story of Honoria and Marcus. This book was delightfully free of any huge secrets, lurking villains or perilous choices. That is not to say that there were not surprises - there were! And that is also not to say that the couple did not have obstacles to overcome - they did! At its heart, Must Like Heaven was a beautiful love story about two people who could not be more perfect for one another. The way Honoria nurses Marcus back to health is so sweet and the way Marcus happily gives himself to the torture of the Smythe-Smith musicale is quite adorable.
A perfect quick read with a wonderful happy ending!
