Starred Review. Trust Quinn to deliver the most entertaining romance so far this year—and to set a high bar that other authors will have a tough time hurdling. Madcap, touching, laugh-out-loud funny and thoroughly satisfying on all emotional levels, her latest London-set historical focuses on Hyacinth, the eighth sibling in Quinn's bestselling Bridgerton family series (following When He Was Wicked). Too intelligent for her own good and best friends with Lady Danbury, one of society's most outspoken grande dames, Hyacinth is in her fourth season on London's Marriage Mart and again unimpressed by the male selection. Only Lady Danbury's handsome, pockets-to-let grandson Gareth St. Clair can hold his own in a conversation with her and sometimes even leaves her in a speechless, stomach-flipping state. When Hyacinth offers to translate the diary of Gareth's deceased Italian grandmother, the pair find themselves comparing notes, then exchanging kisses and finally burglarizing his estranged father's house at midnight. But the diary also holds secrets that could jeopardize their new love. Practically bouncing with humor, this book will keep readers happily on edge, waiting to see how the final unmarried Bridgerton will fare in Quinn's talented hands.

I recently listened to It’s In His Kiss. This is the 7th entry in her Bridgerton series, which features eight alphabetically named Regency era aristocratic siblings. It’s In His Kiss is Hyacinth Bridgerton’s story. Hyacinth agrees to help Gareth St. Clair translate his late grandmother’s diary from Italian into English, but she had no idea that the diary might contain secrets. When the diary insinuates that there might be a valuable treasure hidden in the St. Clair London home, Hyacinth sees an opportunity to a grand adventure.
There’s just one problem: Gareth’s father despises him, and would never allow him into the house. And then things get complicated when Gareth kisses Hyacinth. Who would have guessed what that one kiss would lead to?
It’s In His Kiss is such a charming story. I don’t think I’ve read it since its initial release ten years ago, so it was like a new reading experience. There are plenty of lighter moments and comic relief, courtesy of Lady Danbury, a recurring character who is hilariously candid and never afraid to share her opinion. But there are also some poignant elements, especially concerning Gareth’s relationship (or lack thereof) with his father.
I would absolutely recommend It’s In His Kiss. If you’re not familiar with Julia Quinn and/or her Bridgerton series, I would recommend reading the series in order. This is an enjoyable entry in the series, but it was a little disappointing that the rest of the Bridgerton siblings didn’t play as prominent of a role as they did in some of the other books. That said, the conversation between Gareth and Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton, was hilarious; it’s difficult to tell which man felt more awkward.
I truly love the wit & humor in these books. My daughter always is amazed at how much I laugh while reading, since she doesn't have a passion for reading. Not each Bridgerton book is the same, & in my opinion, Eloise's story wasn't as good as the others. To be honest, I didn't remember how much I loved this one. I'm looking forward to the last one, since I don't remember it well, as it's been years since I've read it. I'm almost hoping I don't like it, since the 2nd epilogue is going to not be there.
Well worth the price with the second epilogue, if you hadn't just bought it with in the last year or so.
Hyacinth is the youngest of 8 children, almost all of whom are happily married by this point. But now it's her turn to look for a husband, her intelligence & outspoken manner, which have always been part of her character, are a little off putting to some men. However, every week she reads for Gareth's grandmother, the fierce Lady Danbury, and she's there when Gareth turns up to ask Lady Danbury about where he might be able to get the diary translated. Despite the fact they don't always get on smoothly, Hyacinth agrees to translate the diary, and soon gets caught up in the story she's discovering there. Together, she and Gareth are then launched on an adventure of trying to follow the clues in the diary to find some valuable jewellery hidden in Gareth's family home.
I love the interactions between Gareth and Hyacinth, and what they think about each other when they aren't together. Of course it's clear from the begining that they're going to end up together, but what I like about historical romance is seeing the journey unfold and watching the characters figure it out themselves. Hyacinth is very feisty, and it was fun to see her finding her place as a grown woman, not just the youngest sister of so many other people. Gareth has been affected so much by his angry, unhappy father - I was very glad when he finally stood up to the man, and that things worked out well in the end.
Although I'm fairly new to her work, this book helped cement Julia Quinn in my mind as an author who I think I'll always enjoy. 'It's In His Kiss' is a fun historical romance adventure in London, complete with society events, scheming mothers, and town gossip. It was a lot of fun to read.
