Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In her spirited, witty, inimitable style, Quinn (It's in His Kiss) wraps up her Regency era Bridgerton series with a tale that takes to task the notion of love at first sight. Gregory Bridgerton's six siblings have all fallen prey to love, so he figures he need only sit back and wait for "the one" to waltz into his life. Then he meets Hermione Watson. The "breathtakingly perfect curve of her neck" convinces Gregory that she's destined to be his, but Hermione's practical, plainspoken friend Lucy Abernathy throws cold water on his aspirations when she informs him that Hermione's heart belongs to another. Quinn's final Bridgerton romance brings the series to a gratifying close. Although some readers will wish that it contained more of the sibling camaraderie that has propelled the series so ably—and less repetitive description of the protagonists' flaws—this tale is as frothy and festive as a glass of bubbly, and more than worthy of a toast.

This is the last book (Book 8) of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series.

I must confess that I absolute love Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series. Her witty storytelling and wonderful storylines often make me feel as if I'm sitting across from her at a coffee shop, drinking whatever, and listening to her as she tells me this story, often punctuated with smiles, chuckles and roaring laughter. Julia Quinn is truly a gifted writer.

I was, however, left disappointed when I read On the Way to the Wedding, Book 8 of the Bridgerton series. Book 8 is about Gregory Bridgerton. Based on what's he's seen in the marriages of his older siblings, Gregory very much believes in love and is waiting to meet his "Ms. Right".

When Gregory spots Miss Hermione Watson, he believes he's found his match. The problem is that Hermione doesn't reciprocate his feelings. Hermione is a beauty and is busy enjoying the attentions of all the men who are fawning over her.

Lady Lucinda Abernathy (Lucy), Hermione's best friend, witnesses Gregory's failed attempts to woo Hermione and begins to feel sorry for him. She offers Gregory her help in winning Hermione but fate steps in and their plans go awry.

Hermione is caught in a compromising position with Lucy's brother and they are forced to marry. Gregory, in his grief, begins to realize that Hermione and him would never have suited. A passionate kiss shared between Gregory and Lucy chases all thoughts of Hermione out of Gregory's mind, and he begins to believe that he's in love with Lucy. Lucy, however, already knows she is in love with Gregory but doesn't trust his fickle affections (and I don't blame her in the least!).

Oh, one more thing: Lucy is engaged to marry the son of an earl and has been for years.

This is the eighth and final Bridgerton installment, and is a rather middling end to the series. It is the story of Gregory, the entertaining and carefree youngest Bridgerton brother. He becomes infatuated with the stunningly beautiful, much sought after, and aloof Miss Hermione Watson, but she is all wrong for him. Her best friend, the sharp-tongued and subtly appealing Lady Lucinda Abernathy, is clearly his perfect mate, but it takes him a little while to realize this, and then he may be too late.

This is a very short summary as my reviews go, and that is because there was not much to this story. Lucy and Gregory were pleasant enough characters, though Gregory a little lightweight, but I did not feel a strong connection with them or between them. I did not feel satisfied at the story's conclusion because I was never invested in the couple. Many of their ruminations and exchanges were amusing, but at some point the humor got in the way of the romance. Every thought was stated, and every move analyzed, in a humorous context. It seemed more like an episode of Gilmore Girls than a historical romance. I am a big fan of the Bridgerton series. This book as well as the seventh book, "It's in His Kiss," are OK reads as light comedy, but if you're looking for subtle humor and sublime romance, try the excellent first six books in this series.

In the final book of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, the time has come for youngest son Gregory to choose a wife. Gregory has always been a believer in true love, especially after witnessing his seven siblings all marry for love. So at 26 Gregory decides that he won't just settle for marriage, but he'll wait until he falls in love. Which he does... in a heartbeat with a beautiful girl named Hermione Watson. The only problem is that Hermione is already in love, and that every other eligible gentleman also seems to want her. Herminoe's best friend, Lady Lucinda Abernathy, actually likes Gregory better than her friend's other suitors and much more than the man to whom Hermione has given her heart. So Lucinda decides to help Gregory win Hermione, only somewhere along the way she falls for Gregory herself.

On the Way to the Wedding was fine, but in comparison with the rest of the books in the series it was definitely subpar. The hero and heroine weren't even the focus of most of the book. By the time the two finally realize they're in love with each other, the story was more than two-thirds over. Not only that, but I never got the sense that Lucinda was as moral and upright a person as the ending of this book would have us believe. Not that I thought she was a lying wretch or anything, but to sacrifice one's life for the sake of one's family, you would think she would have demanded a little more proof than the word of a man who has treated her as a second-class loser for her entire life. And to have the man you love, or claim to, fall on his knees in front of God and the rest of the country and declare his love, only to have you turn your back on him and deny that connection is crap. Utter crap and I have not forgiven Lucy for it.

I have followed the entire Bridgerton series since the very beginning. I fell in love with the whole family from the first four books of the series and then was extremely disappointed when Francesca and Daphne's story did not seem to measure up to the first four siblings. But when I purchased this story, I just could not put it down. I read the whole story in one sitting and absolutely fell in love with the series all over again. Gregory is a great hero because he is so different. He actually believes and wants to be in love. So refreshing from all the heroes in other romance novels who are so resistant to the idea of love and marriage, and the reformed rakes that infiltrate most of the historical romance novels. The heroine is also not what one would expect. Lucy is not the prettiest girl and is overlooked and overshadowed by her gorgeous best friend. She actually reminded me a lot of Kate, Anthony's wife, who is one of my favorite characters in the series. Fantastic dialogue and story. I loved it so much that it made me reread the whole series and was happily surprised by the great quality of Hyacinth's story. A great closer for the series.
