To Sir Phillip, With Love

I'll confess that this is my first Bridgerton novel. I know now I want more of them, I want all of them. As soon as I finish this review, I'm going to the bookstore. What an endearing family!! Sir Phillip Crane never wanted to be a baronet. He was the younger son who was perfectly happ ...

The Viscount Who Loved Me

If an author has done her job, I will be swept away into another world and introduced to people I would like to know in real life, and when I leave this fictional world I will have been moved in some way. With The Viscount Who Loved Me, Julia Quinn has most definitely done her job. Anthony Bridge ...

The Viscount Who Loved Me

In The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second book in Julia Quinn's series about the Bridgerton siblings (following The Duke and I), we meet Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sheffield. Anthony has determined at last to marry, but for reasons of his own, he doesn't want to risk his heart. He sets out to court ...

The Duke and I

I always look forward to a new book by Julia Quinn, because I've enjoyed all of her books to varying degrees. They aren't all keepers for me, but I find that even the ones that aren't favorites generally have plenty of humor and likable characters. The Duke and I fits this mold. It has some flaws, b ...

How to Marry a Marquis

Julia Quinn's How to Marry a Marquis is marvelous entertainment. I haven't read this author for a couple of years now, and as someone who gave her debut romance, Splendid, DIK status, I've shied away from her most recent releases for fear of being disappointed. In the interim, she's obviously learne ...

To Catch An Heiress

Conversation and dialogue. . . Julia Quinn's To Catch an Heiress reminded me of a screenplay because the entire book seemed to be a conversation between two or three characters. I've been very satisfied with Quinn's earlier novels, so I was puzzled with my dissatisfaction after reading this one. I f ...

To Catch An Heiress

Julia Quinn is an author known for her lighthearted, humorous romances. To Catch an Heiress definitely fits that description, with a touch more angst, making for a more involved read. Caroline is almost twenty-one – the age that she gains control of her inheritance and is finally free from the ...

A
Splendid

Splendid is a splendidly, witty, wicked, and sexy read. I liken Splendid to Seinfeld. Just as Jerry, Kramer, Elaine, and George can spend a half hour entertaining us while doing essentially nothing, Julia Quinn''s debut novel is a delightful romp with very little in the way of story-line. There's a ...

Minx

Julia Quinn writes wonderfully witty, sexy books that work best when there isn't a plot, or a traditional "villain." That's why Splendid is one of my all-time keepers. That's why I liked Dancing at Midnight less than Splendid, and why I like Minx better than Dancing at Midnight. Minx is the d ...

Dancing at Midnight

Julia Quinn, who debuted as a romance author with the quite splendid Splendid, has written its not-quite-as-splendid follow-up, Dancing At Midnight. Set in the Regency period, the book opens with Lady Arabella Blydon, our beautiful bluestocking heroine, visiting the country estate of her cousin Emma ...
