Excellent read. Another Bridgerton tale. Answers the question of "Lady Whistledown's" idenity.
Although this has to be my least favorite in the series thus far, it is still an entertaining read. I think I finished it in just a few hours (probably because I never put it down). I think one of the disappointing things about it was that I expected Colin to be a little more fun (if that's possible) to read about because his appearances in the previous novels of the series were, well, funny. Of course, I made the mistake half the ton appeared to make and what he actually lamented in the book: he's charming and nothing else. Why, even the amazing Lady Whistledown made the same mistake, and although I sort of saw what was coming regarding her, when it actually happened there was still a giant, "AHA" moment. And before I babble on more, I should just get down to saying that even though it isn't my favorite, it was still very funny and an excellent part of the Bridgerton series.
good quick read about two people who have known each other their entire lives and suddenly fall in love.
I never tire of the Bridgertons! Colin is the charmer, but wants to be known for more than that. And this book contains some surprises regarding Lady Whistledown!
Absolutely loved it! I think this one may very well be my favorite of the Bridgerton series so far. Colin and Penelope are wonderful.
Enjoyable fluff. One big sex scene. Disappointing subplot about Lady Whistledown. Pleasant enty in the series.
Not the best of Quinn's Bridgerton series-a little darker than the others. Not something I would read twice
Wonderful love story, part of a wonderful series
Loved it! The romance was great and the mystery was an added bonus!
I think that this is my favorite Bridgerton book. I really can't explain why. I always loved Colin in the other stories and Love how Penelope gets her very own happy ever after. I will miss Lady Whistledown forever in this series, maybe that is why it is my favorite, bittersweet because we finally find out who Whistledown is, then have to say goodbye for the remainder of the series. She added a little something to these books. Julia Quinn just released an epilogue to this story - sure to be a fun read (available by e-book or on i-tunes)
I love this book! Julia Quinn is an exceptional author, one of my faves, and this is by far one of best books in the Bridgerton series. I've reread it many times.
WOW! I love how Quinn can creat a family and give each character its own personality! Amazingly written with parts able to make me laugh out loud.
The talented Ms. Quinn has produced another winner in her Bridgerton series. This book, as the others in the series, is lively and witty and written in a charming, frothy style that is convincingly period without being inaccesible. This was the perfect summer read -- the plot was entertaining and light, the characters likeable, interesting, and real.
And let me take a moment to congratulate Ms. Quinn on her choice of heroine -- the unpopular wallflower, Penelope Featherington. It was heartening to read a romance in which the heroine is not a great beauty, but rather a shy girl who tends to be either ignored or laughed at by her peers. The author gave Penelope real depth of character in this book, and made her someone the reader honestly cares about. I was cheering her on as I read.
And finally, the mystery of Lady Whistledown's identity is revealed! I thought I had figured out who it was, but I was completely mistaken -- and delighted to be so.
A lovely story, and a lovely book.
Penelope Featherington has loved Colin Bridgerton from afar and thinks she knows everything about him.Until she stumbles across his deepest secret.....
One of my all time favorite romances. A light and fun book. It really deserves more than 5 stars. It is number 4 of the "Bridgerton" series. We find out who is Lady Wistledown in this book.
Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend's brother for... well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton form afar, she thinks she knows everything abou thim, until she stumbles upon his deepest secret...and she fears she dosen't know him at all.
Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought nothing but an empty-headed charmer,tired of the never ending samness of his life,and, most of all, tired of everyone's preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can't seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragragh. But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroad, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same-especially Lady Penelope Featherington! The girl who was always simply...there is suddenly the girl haunting his dreams. But when he discovers that Penelpoe has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide...is she his biggest threat-or his promise of a happy ending?
When an author makes you wait for the key title in a wonderful series, there are some pretty high expectations. I can say that Romancing Mr. Bridgerton lives up to those expectations. Everyone who has read even a single Bridgerton title loves Penelope. She is a wonderful character and she exceeds expectations in this book. Colin is a wonderful match for her (although sometimes he seems a bit whiny). He is a dashing romantic hero and proves himself her worthy match.
This is just an all-around fabulous book and a great addition to the series.
Penelope and Colin's story answers the question "Who is Lady Whistledown?"
This is the book that reveals who "Lady Whistledown" is!! Colin Bridgerton is the brother that this book marries off! Penelope (a friend of a bridgerton sister) has been secretly in love with him for years!!! I enjoyed this book.
Everyone knows that Colin Bridgerton is the most charming man in London.
