Having met older brothers George and Edward in the first two books, we now get to enjoy seeing the witty third brother Andrew matched, in his case to the equally witty Poppy. Plenty of verbal sparring ensues when Andrew feels compelled to kidnap the female found poking about in his secret cave used to hide his brandy and secret government letters. She spends the whole boring journey to Portugal shut in his cabin, not knowing he's highly eligible. He knows the whole time there's a real risk he'll have to marry her, but by the time they arrive in Lisbon, that's not the awful prospect it seemed when he first met her. Sparkling!
I was excited for this next book. I was not let down! This was brilliantly written. The talent of Julia quinn is radiated throughout this novel. The fact she made 2 characters interesting enough to keep the story afloat on their own was amazing. Apart from the odd extra it was Andrew and poppy through the most of it. Very witty and clever. I would recommend reading the forst 2 of the trilogy as many references to family members would be easier to follow. Loved it!!
I seem to have waited ages for this book but it was well worth the wait. I absolutely loved it! Read it very quickly which means I will have to force myself read it again. Of course it helps that I have read all the other relevant books that link to this and so understood the references.
The humor, the characters, the romance- amazingly done by Julia Quinn. This book, much like the others in the series, starts off quickly and moves into the plot development. It had me laughing, grinning like an idiot, hanging off the edge of my seat and sighing so many times. I quickly fell in love with the characters and I could feel the romance in my bones whilst reading this. Easily a new all-time favorite!
I've been a fan of Julia Quinn for over ten years now and she never lets me down. I managed to finish this book in one, very long and pleasant sitting. Its always a joy to read about the Bridgerton family.
