This book is not for the girls who believe that they are an INCOMPARABLES ! It is for the wall flowers . It tells you something you already know What you see is not what you get beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Miranda Cheever doesn't possess the kind of beauty that can make a guy lose his head and heart but her intelligence, clarity , confidence and ability to love make her perfect for the ONE looking for anything but love . The writing style is beautiful and engaging and you can't but help that Miranda gets what she wants Miss Cheever rooting for you
I really enjoyed most books by this author, but not so much this one. I hope it won't be a great SPOILER to say that it tell us a story of a little girl who fall in love and 10 years later got her prince charming. He think he doesn't love her but "surprisingly" at the end he realised he loved her all along.... There is no signature humour in this book, nor there is and background mistery, that keeps us on the edge of our seats.
This is probably the darkest JQ book, with both the hero and heroine behaving badly and it certainly deals with the pain of unrequited love and the bitterness of betrayal. I enjoyed this book as it explores darker emotions within the context... wish there had been an epilogue though which may have helped the feel good factor I normally associate with the end of a JQ book
I have not read a book that has captivated me forsome time. This book however has done just that. I followed the relationship of Miranda and Turner through all its up and downs. How one person's inability to tell another how they feel caused such heartbreak and pain. Julia Quinn has excelled herself. I could not put this book down. If you are a Julia Quinn fan then you NEED to read this book. It's absolutely great.
Outside of the Bridgerton series, this is hands down my favourite Julia Quinn book. Not only does Quinn breathe her usual wit into the characters and their storylines , but I found myself truly caring what happened to both Miranda and Turner. I struggled to put this book down and I lost a night's sleep as a result.
This is my second read through this enchanting story and I know I will revisit it again in the future.
A masterclass in mixing humour and romance with heartbreak and happiness. A man & a woman whose characters are each side of the same coin. Open and trusting against closed and broken. What a great rollercoaster ride through their growing relationship and ultimate happy life together. An enjoyable, funny, entertaining story - go read it now!
