This entry in Julia Quinn's bestselling Bridgerton family series is a champagne bubble of a book, brimming with wit, humor, and a wonderful romance.
In her fourth season on London's marriage mart, Hyacinth Bridgerton, far too outspoken to be universally attractive, finally gets the love she deserves. The youngest of eight siblings who were famously named in alphabetical order, Hyacinth prefers to spend her time not socializing but reading to the sharp-tongued Lady Danbury. The only man who doesn't wilt around Hyacinth is Lady Danbury's grandson, Gareth St. Clair, the possessor of a semi-scandalous reputation. When he turns up with his grandmother's diary, needing a translation from Italian, Hyacinth readily volunteers. Their efforts lead to a burglary, many kisses, and the discovery of long-held family secrets. The dialogue sparkles, and all the characters are tremendously appealing. Ginger Curwen
