It’s in HIs Kiss by Julia Quinn

The Bridgerton’s bk 7

Meet Our Hero…

Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth’s sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past… and the key to his future. The problem is–it’s written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word.

Meet Our Heroine…

All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She’s fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there’s something about her–something charming and vexing–that grabs him and won’t quite let go…

Meet Poor Mr. Mozart…

Or don’t. But rest assured, he’s spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual–an annually discordant–Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth’s every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other… and that there is nothing as simple–or as complicated–as a single, perfect kiss.

REVIEW: I got this book for Christmas, and as I was half way through it I realized that I had read it years ago when it first came out. I didn’t realize that it was part of a series at the time, only that it was a cute story.

As I have been reading the Bridgerton’s as a series, I appreciate the story much more. I could see the actions of Hyacinth so much clearer. If you like fun complex families than you have to read this book.

This was read as part of the Winter 08 Reading Challenge: For Valentines Day read a book that kiss, heart in the title.

I give this book 4 out 5.
