This review is from: It's In His Kiss (Bridgertons) (Mass Market Paperback)
Although I have declared to my friends that Ms. Quinn is my favorite romance writer, I agree with many other readers who feel disappointed with this book. I've read all Ms.Quinn's books and am a great fan of the Bridgerton series. While some readers had some strong comments for To Sir Phillip With Love, I, however enjoyed it.
I usually finish a Bridgerton book within a night this time, it took me over a week. The story was not gripping. Also, it was neither funny nor deep. In this bookViolet Br. became quite a bore and the exchange between father and son were so mundane. Compare this book to Duke & I (both heros have conflict with their fathers) and you'd see how Ms. Quinn has let us down.
I also had expected more about the family or family activities. Such as playing Pall Mall, trips to Greenwich, but was disappointed to find none. Despite the fact that Ms. Quinn keeps stressing in the book about the closeness of this family. In my idea, Gregory was brought in, only to remind us that his book is coming out next year. Besides a few sentences just to annoy his sister, he did nothing. Though he is described as always being the "big brother" figure in her life. One would have thought that he would catch her sneaking out to meet Garath at least once.
Although I don't see Ms. Quinn coming out with that many books (1 a year and a novella?), I agree with someone who says she should go away and get some fresh ideas.
