Four Weddings and a Sixpence

The stories in Four Weddings and a Sixpence, a new anthology from some of the biggest names in historical romance, follow a group of friends who each find love with a little help – perhaps – from the old sixpenny piece one of them finds lurking beneath her mattress. Something Old - by J ...

Because of Miss Bridgerton

There can’t be many people in Romancelandia who haven’t at the very least heard of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series. Through eight books (not including the subsequently published set of Second Epilogues), we followed the eight Bridgerton siblings as they found love, romance and their happily ev ...

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

I’ve seen a lot of very mixed reactions to this book, which is the final novel in the author’s Smythe-Smith Quartet. All the negative comments I’ve seen concern the actions of the hero, the eponymous Sir Richard, who - it’s true - perpetrates a rather despicable deception on the heroine. But ...

The Sum of All Kisses

Having listened to – and enjoyed - the previous two books in the Smythe-Smith series, I’m inclined to think this is the best of them so far. Each one has been full of Ms Quinn’s trademark wit and excellent characterisation, but for me, The Sum of All Kisses had a little something extra in the ...

The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After

When I first chose this book to review, I did not realize that it was a collection of short stories about the Bridgerton family; I only initially noticed that it was another Julia Quinn book. When I discovered that it was not a novel, but eight “second epilogues” and a novella about matriarch Vi ...

Ten Things I Love About You

Each time I read a Julia Quinn romance, I’m puzzled by the fact that I have read so few. Out of her twenty full length books, Ten Things I Love About You is only my fourth. But, as I slip into another of her books, it doesn’t take long for me to recall her unique style of humor and ability to ...

What Happens in London

I know this will come as a shock to some people, but I’ve never been a big fan of Julia Quinn. It’s not that I dislike her books; it’s just that I’ve never loved any of them as others seem to. However, I could see a lot of wit and intelligence in her writing, so I’ve always been open to gi ...

Mr. Cavendish, I Presume

Mr. Cavendish, I Presume is part of a literary experiment: It and its companion novel, The Lost Duke of Wyndham, published in June of this year, depict the same few weeks and even partly the same scenes, but each book has as its focus a different couple. I came to this novel with high expectations. ...

The Lost Duke of Wyndham

With The Lost Duke of Wyndham, Julia Quinn kicks off a two-book set of intertwined stories, each covering the same time period through the eyes of two possible dukes. The hero of each book has reason to believe he is truly the Duke of Wyndham, but one will have to accustom himself to a life without ...
