Julia Quinn's debut novel is one of her best. Lovable and sensible characters meet and become friends, instead of unrealistically falling head over heels the first time they meet each other. Witty and unconventional, this book was a quick and fun read. I highly recommend it for anyone who's a fan of Julia Quinn.
Very funny book. I can't recommend this book highly enough. One of my favorites by Julia Quinn.
Best read before Dancing at Midnight and Minx, Alex and Emma's story..excellent
Alexander Ridgeley, the Duke of Ashbourne, has no plans to marry anytime soon. But when a redheaded American saves his nephew's life, he may have to rethink his plans. Emma Dunstan is everything Alex never thought a woman could be--smart, funny and brave. She's also a servant, completely unsuitable for a duke. Little does he know, but Emma is actually an American heiress visiting her cousins in London.
This is Julia Quinn's debut novel. The first half of the book was a little slow for me and tended to drag in places. The second half picks up the pace for an enjoyable story. My rating: 4.0 stars.
