I also love that this book actually had more of a plot as well, not just the romance and it was full of laugh out loud humour. I couldn't wait to find out what happens next.
Finally I loved the gothic novel "Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron" got a mention again. I think I would actually like to read this crazy book, killer pigeons and all!
Also has my favourite JQ lines when Harry says to Sebastian:
'You scream like a leettle girl.' to which Sebastian asks
'Is there any reason you're saying that with a German accent?'
Fluent in both French and Russian, Sir Harry works for the boring part of the War Office, because despite spending years in the Hussars fighting Napoleon he'd rather translate documents than become a spy. But fluent Russian speakers are hard to come by in London, so when a Russian prince arrives - under suspicion regarding his motives and loyalty - Harry is the obvious choice to keep an eye on him.
It just so happens that Olivia is Harry's neighbour - but that doesn't explain why she's spent the best part of a week spying on him. When the prince starts showing marked interest in Olivia, Harry soon gets every chance to find out. Whether he wants to or not.
JQ is back on form with this delightful tale of rumours, suspicion and the amusing consequences of jumping to conclusions. Olivia is a true JQ heroine, with wonderful quirks - like her mental list making - and Harry is an intelligent hero, who is refreshingly comfortable with himself and his emotions. There's no self-delusion for him.
As lovely as their burgeoning relationship is, however, what makes this special is the wit, the ludicrous situations and fabulous supporting characters. Only JQ could have two characters court convincingly out of the windows of two separate houses, with ten feet between them. Or write more than one brilliant drawing room scene - though Sebastian definitely steals the show in the second.
A glorious return to form, complete with princes, badly written gothic novels and one of the best proposal scenes I've ever come across. This follow up to The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever is an absolute winner. Can't wait for Seb's tale.
She spies on him from her bedroom window whilst he is in his drawing room office & he pretends that he does not know that she is there.
What these 2 go through, their thoughts, their initial hatred of each other, their growing attraction & the characters (especially Sebastian that add credence to the storyline) that round off this novel is brilliantly executed.
What is so sweet about this modern day Jane Austen type novel ( there is no resemblance to the story so do not please be discouraged to buy this book) in style of writing is the feelings that slowly develope & bud into strong emotion. Julia Quinn has her own unique style but she has a lot of passion in developing the characters & the subtle story line that then leaves the reader with a spring to their step.
Loved the highs & lows to their growing feelings for each other to the climax when Olivia realises that she has not known Harry at all well & is shocked to realise that she had placed all her trust in this one person & feels that she has been misguided. This particular scene was really well written without going overboard.
Rounded off again with a nice romantic humourous touch. Loved it immensely.
