    Don't bother!

    It's not a "short story" at all, but a series of segments from other Balogh books!

    not so great

    I love this author and absolutely enjoyed: more than a mistress, no man's mistress and the secret mistress. However, this short story was just overkill.

    An insult to her readers.

    It is like going to the show and you have to sit thru a car agency ad for a used car. Don't waste your money. The last 20 pages or so are a coming attraction for a old book being dug up and reprinted. Shame on your Mary Balogh.

    Enjoyed this tidbit!

    Mary Balogh is probably my favorite romance author. This short read was a great little addition to some of her previous work and is like icing on the cake for me. It was one of the first Nook books I ordered to see how that works and it was fast, easy and and enjoyable read.

    Wish I'd read The Secret Mistress first... (LVR)

    Then I would have know this epilogue for the entire series is included with that book and would not have wasted money on this purchase.

    Shame on the author. I am a big Mary Balogh fan and this was not a story, but a way to make a quick buck. If she felt the need to tell every detail of the how and why, then put it in the orginal book.

    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    Mary Balogh books draw you in and I cannot put them down. They take me away to a different time and place from the real world of work and family. The characters in her books become part of you while you read. New Bride is not different than her other books and series.

    I love this author, but this was a huge disappointment. It was not worth my time or money.

    Hmm.

    I should have believed the reviews. I do love her stories but this was really a rip-off.

    Wonderful addition to the three book series. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

    I just love Mary Balogh's books. This is a great addition to the three book series. If I had this when I read the books, it would have been a great asset to understanding the "rest of the story".

    Disappointing

    this is not a "book". It is 2 additional chapters from two different books that came out 10 years ago so remembering the original was difficult and the whole thing was disappointing

    Not Worth It

    There is no short story just additional chapters to the existing mistresses books. This should have been free.
    Would have given zero stars if possible.
