I generally find this author’s work outstanding, but this book left me disappointed. The plot felt contrived and the dialog lacked wit...two things I’ve never associated with Julia Quinn previously.

Wonderful characters. Plot under-developed and stodgy. Better luck next time.

I have read all of Julia Quinn's books - and enjoyed all of them. As I read The Other Miss Bridgerton, I had a smile on my face almost the whole time, except when I was turning the pages fast in one "hairy" part, wanting to get through it and get back to smiling! Her dialogue is so witty, the characters so funny and charming, that it's almost impossible not to read the whole book in one sitting.

Third novel in the Rokesby series, we are once again meeting another of the Bridgerton family. Here we find Miss Poppy Bridgerton at loose ends; so she has agreed to spent time with her pregnant friend while the friend's husband is away. Now Poppy is kind. stubborn, witty, smart and a little too curious for her own good. She wants to marry for love or not at all. So while off exploring the beach near her friend's home, she find herself in a pickle. Now we meet Captain Andrew James (a Rokesby in truth) who is not what he seems. While his current occupation is fulfilling, it was never his passion and he is at a crossroads in his life. Enter Poppy. Can two strangers, thrown together in untenable circumstances, living in close quarters, find their true selves and their true destiny? You'll have to read The Other Miss Bridgerton to find the answers. Another of Ms. Quinn's excellent, imaginative novels. Dear reader, don't miss it! (less)

Such a fun story! Poppy is a wonderful heroine--her almost-unending curiosity and great imagination (the stories she makes up in her head are laugh-out-loud at times) made her a delight to read. Andrew is her perfect hero--as long as you can forget that he's been lying by omission to her since they met. (It's too darn easy to forget, too--they keep you completely distracted: first by their antagonism toward and aggravation with each other, later with the actual danger Ms. Quinn throws them into, and finally just with the sheer deliciousness of Poppy and Andrew.) I'm a sucker for spy heroes/heroines, so I especially loved Andrew's true profession for much of the book (though I definitely appreciated that he realized he was nearing the end of that particular career, since it doesn't lend itself well to family life). Ms. Quinn did a nice job using forced proximity here--even though Poppy spends a lot of the book trapped in the captain's cabin of a sailing ship, she managed to keep both our and Poppy's (and Andrew's!) interest going. Poppy's curiosity and imagination helped quite a bit here, as did plenty of slow burn romance deliciousness. Though I have to admit I was nearly as anxious as Poppy was for her to set foot on dry land at last, even though that excursion didn't go quite as planned. (Does it ever...?) Though this is the third book in the series, it should work fine as a standalone. Billie, Poppy's cousin and the heroine from book 1 plays a small role here, and the couple from book 2 are mentioned in passing a few times--you do not have to have read their books to appreciate Poppy and Andrew's, though, as this book is very much about the two of them. The narrator of the audiobook did a great job, as always. Her posh voice and accent adds an extra layer of authenticity to the story. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A-

Ms. Quinn's stories seem to be getting simpler. This book was very straight forward in following a basic plot. Not sure why we had to have the "big drama" except as a reason to separate them before the "big romanctic ending". Adding that created many holes in the story that went unanswered for me. Nice educational description on earthquake architecture in late 18th century tho. I enjoy stuff like that.

This is my favorite of the Rokesby series. Very witty dialog and likable characters.

Absolutely love Julia Quinn!! Her stories are so wonderfully written...great storylines, witty, intelligent dialogue, and charming characters. My only complaint is that I hate for them to end. This one does not disappoint. Ms. Quinn, please write faster, I beg of you!

anticipated, yes . . . had fun, adventure, romance . . . You get just what you expect from Julia Quinn's historical romance. You get adventure, mischief, humor, romance and just a bit more. The Bridgerton's treat you like family or very close friends. This one little Bridgerton find that some of her independent nature has bound her to a ship and its captain. What could she possible get in to with no place to really go? I love the Bridgertons and the Rokesbys. Find them all together makes this read just that much more to enjoy. I had a really good time.

The Other Miss Bridgerton is a Bridgerton’s Prequel by Julia Quinn. This was a really good book. There were some hilarious scenes that had me laughing out loud. Poppy Bridgerton is too curious for her own good. While exploring the coast, she comes across and smuggler’s cave and is caught by said smugglers. Kidnapped and taken to a ship she is held hostage on board the Infinity. Captain Andrew James is stunned to find a Bridgerton in his cabin. But he has secrets that must be kept. Poppy doesn’t know his real identity and he must keep it that way. “His hair was a rich warm brown, sun-streaked with gold and pulled into a devilish queue at the back of his neck. His face was quite simply perfect, with full, finely molded lips that tipped up at the corners, leaving him with an expression of permanent mischief. And his eyes were blue, so vividly so that she could discern their color from across the room.” This was another great book by Quinn in an already amazing series.

4.5 stars I had read and enjoyed the previous book in this series and loved this synopsis, so I was pretty eager to start it. I absolutely adored Poppy and Andrew. She’s sassy and curious and is outspoken. He’s just as sassy and charming and and wants people to think he’s a bit of a scoundrel, but is quite a marshmallow. Together they have delicious banter and button pushing and fantastic conversation. Plot wise, it was good. Of course, there’s only so much that can happen in one room of a ship, but it never felt monotonous. The deviation towards the ending didn’t click in the story line for me and even though it was supposed to be the action and build up, I was bored with it. My main complaint, if you could even call it that, is that I wanted more of them falling for each other. It seemed like I was told they were in love, instead of being shown. Overall, the characters and banter seriously carried this story and I really enjoyed every page. I look forward to reading more in the series. **Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**

Three and a half stars. Poppy Bridgerton is spending a few weeks with her (very pregnant) friend Elizabeth in Somerset, every afternoon she explores the coastline looking for caves, until one day she stumbles across a privateers' cave and is kidnapped. Andrew James Rokesby is a former naval captain turned privateer on behalf of His Majesty, couriering letters and documents between the UK, France, Spain and Portugal under the name Captain Andrew James. He is on deadline to deliver some letters to Portugal and has no alternative but to take with him the young woman his men discover hiding among the brandy kegs. However, once they are at sea and he discovers that she is a Bridgerton, cousin to the family that lives next door to his family in Kent, he realises that there is a very real possibility that he will have to marry her to preserve her reputation. Poppy and Andrew have a great sparky relationship full of innuendo and sarcasm and I really enjoyed reading their exchanges while she was imprisoned on board the ship. I love Julia Quinn's writing and it had an added interest since I spent a long weekend in Lisbon this summer. Unfortunately, I am less enthused about shipboard romances and my enjoyment of the novel overall was tempered by the feeling that I just wanted them to get off the ship which unfortunately doesn't happen for a long time. I am also surprised to see that I somehow missed the second book in this series (love, love, loved the first book, Because of Miss Bridgerton) so I am off to rectify that omission tout suite. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Prepare to get caught up in the whirlwind. that is Julia Quinn. Intrigue, fire and adventure await on the high seas, this time around. They never should have met, but fate had other plans. Poppy is an inquisitive soul with a romantic heart. Andrew is a wanderer with a penchant for danger. Thrust into a world that is unpredictable at best, temptation ignites and hearts are lost. Two strangers find an unquenchable passion, but what happens when their true identities are revealed? The Other Miss Bridgerton is a pleasure that captures the soul from beginning to end.
