"It was….ok. Not a bad read. It just felt a bit…..bland."

"Unlike other reviewers, I don’t feel like this ending suited Eloise. She deserved someone who wasn’t broken, a project for her to fix. No one can deny Phillip needed HER, as did his children, but she didn’t need him. In the end, they are happy I guess and that’s all that matters, it just wasn’t the ending I would have hope or expected for her. "
"I love this whole series, but each one gets better and better. I think I said this on the last one, but this has been my favorite so far. It gives a great perspective on what goes on outside of the city life in London. Eloise has so much character and this story suites her. It has been the first one in the series that has truly unpredictable aspects that end up bringing their love together. It’s an emotional rollercoaster that seems like it is more relatable than the cliche “everything falls perfectly together” type of love story. Also, I feel like Julia Quinn writes such a realistic perspective of a man’s point of view on emotions and marriage. I was very entertained to say the least. "
"I absolutely loved it!! Eloise running off was such a her thing to do, to get ahold of her future. The fact that all four of her brothers (even Gregory) came was absolutely amazing and cute (the fact they were definitely overprotective). Anthony was such a good brother too (office scene) and it was funny when Eloise accidentally said there was a bee and Anthony started walking over. It was a cute detail from Anthony’s story added. Amanda and Oliver being considered grandchildren immediately was super amazing too. So romantic how it started with letters."
