Overview

Mr. Cavendish, I Presume (Two Dukes of Wyndham Series #2) by Julia Quinn

Amelia Willoughby has been engaged to the Duke of Wyndham for as long as she can remember. Literally. A mere six months old when the contracts were signed, she has spent the rest of her life waiting. And waiting. And waiting . . . for Thomas Cavendish, the oh-so-lofty duke, to finally get around to marrying her. But as she watches him from afar, she has a sneaking suspicion that he never thinks about her at all . . .

It's true. He doesn't. Thomas rather likes having a fiancée—all the better to keep the husband-hunters at bay—and he does intend to marry her . . . eventually. But just when he begins to realize that his bride might be something more than convenient, Thomas's world is rocked by the arrival of his long-lost cousin, who may or may not be the true Duke of Wyndham. And if Thomas is not the duke, then he's not engaged to Amelia. Which is the cruelest joke of all, because this arrogant and illustrious duke has made the mistake of falling in love . . . with his own fiancée!

I am a great fan of Julia Quinn and the first book, The Lost Duke of Wyndham was very entertaining. I expected the sequel to be about Thomas and was so excited when I bought it. I started reading and I actually went and found the first book in my stash as I thought I was mistaken and had already bought this one. Over three hundred pages later and rereading the exact same plot as the first book, I finally get something new at the very end of the last 40 pages. This book should never have been published and I feel really ripped off for spending $7.99 to reread the plot of the first book. Don't buy it!

This book is the same book as The lost Duke of Wyndham (the previous novel to this one). It is the same dialogie and is just the persepctive of the overthrown duke for the lost heir and his promised fiance. It is their relationship and it is the same scences and dialogue with perspective changes. Horrible , horrible read!

Why would I purchase the same story twice?! If you've read 'The Lost Duke of Wyndham', then don't waste your precious time. This story is from Thomas's and Amelia's point of view, but so what? I had to reread the Wyndham's quest for proof of dukedom all over again, from beginning to end. It was very lacking, as was reading 'The Lost Duke of Wyndham'. I've been looking for a repeat performance as that of 'The Secret Diaries of Miranda Cheever', but to no avail.

I am a huge Julua Quinn fan love all of her books. This is the same exact story with the same exact characters as " The Lost Duke of Wyndym" and this book "Mr. Cavendish, I Presume". The only difference she tells the thoughts of the two different couple in each story. It has the same conversations and everything that happens in one happens innthe other until the last 2 chapters that are actually about the couple that the book is suppose to be about. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON BUYING BOTH BOOKS JUST GET THE CHEAPER ONE OR BORROW IT FROM YOUR NEAREST LIBRARY

I love Julia Quinn books, own every one she has ever written...But I have to say this is the worst Quinn novel I have ever read...I have never given any of her books less then 4 stars, but this one I could barely give 2. If, like me you are a Quinn fan and you feel you have to read this book, get it from the library so you won't feel like you wasted your money...

I agree with majority of other reviews. I didn't bother reading The Lost Duke because of the bad reviews. I did buy this one and I kind of regret it. There wasn't enough insight into the characters and I didn't feel any real passion between them. And without reading its predecessor, I could still tell the books were greatly overlapping each other. Other authors have done this and I'm sure publishers are the root evil. Even the romance scene wasn't that romantic.

I know they were meant to be companion books, but I was shocked at how much duplication there was between this book and its predecessor, The Lost Duke of Wyndham. I reread the first book before buying this one, thinking it would refresh my memory as to the story so far. Little did I know that the 'story so far' was going to be the same story told again, word for word in many places! The vast majority of the dialog was identical to that of the first book. True, it was seen from a different point-of-view, but since both perspectives were generally in the same room, it was hardly revealing. I can only suppose that there was originally just one book, but someone got greedy and thought they could make some bucks by selling the side story separately. Other than a couple of kissing scenes, the only new story was in the last 50 pages. It would have rounded out the first book nicely, or it could have been a free online bonus, but to sell it as a separate book is a scam. Very disappointing.

Despite the negative reviews I decided to purchase it on good faith. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! Romance, witty humor, and suspense made this book impossible to put down.

This book is a rip off. The last chapter should of been added to the "The Lost Duke of Wyndham". 90% if this book is an exact copy from the previous book....You should be ashamed for forceing your readers to buy this book. For all future Julia Quinn readers you should correct this. Pat

Listen to all of the reviews! It's stunning this was published as a separate novel. It would have been better if the first book had been given a few more pages and integrated the story of Thomas and Amelia into it. This was a complete waste. Even though it's told from Thomas and Amelia's point of view, you can skip to Chapter 20 if you want to get to the new part. The rest is a complete rehash of The Lost Duke of Wyndham, a lot of it word for word. Disappointing. I would have assumed this book began where the last left off. I agree with the other reviewers that this book is not worth spending money on - read this book or the first in the series. You do not need to read and buy both.

Ive been reading romance novels for a good amount of time now. About six years. And once you read that many all of them start to become the same. And others are no longer descritive enough or writtn a preferred wa. In this case i felt like it was rushed. And he founf out he loved her way too randomly. The romance didnt really develop that strongly. And i question his affection a bit. The plot story is very interesting but the stry itself is lacking. But if you are new to historical romanc it may be good for you. Becse i probably would have enjiyed it back then. But it was only oka. I skipped a lot an was still able to predict the outome.

Copy and paste of first book! 230 pages, 200 of them were read in the first of the series-and the romance was not even skin deep, the only feelings I have developed from this book are irritation at the author.
