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. [Review originally posted by me on my book review blog, The Book Bundle.]
The romance in this book is sweet and the mystery is engaging. There are some unrealistic situations that occur while the two search for the treasure, but that didn't ruin the book for me. I liked the book, but found it to be not as good as the other books in the series. That does not mean, however, that the book is not good. It just was not as memorable as some of the others. It is more melodramatic than the others, I think mimicking Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron which is being read in the novel. The book was funny in the Quinn way. The scene where Gareth goes to Anthony to ask to marry Hyacinth was simply hysterical.
