Well, this has been a disappointing read. I love this series. The characters are wonderful and most of the time I can expect a funny and good romantic story. As usual, there are a few humorous situations and comments, but this book is weaker than the previous especially the first four. Actually, I think the moment Lady Whistledown stopped writing, the books went downhill. While I liked this story more than I did To Sir Phillip, With Love, I couldn’t find that thing that made me love An Offer From a Gentleman and Romancing Mister Bridgerton.

The closest description I can think of at the moment is a much more immature version of the first book (The Duke and I). I liked Hyacinth in previous books, but here I didn’t care.
The person who provides humour here is, as usual, Lady Danbury. This time is personal for her because Gareth is her grandson. ( )

Oh, I do love the Bridgerton Family! Each story is a wonderful romance with plenty of drama. A nice touch of steam to keep things naughty! Love this whole series and the epilogues!! And that Lady Whistledown is a hoot!! Such wonderfully engaging characters! Makes me wish I could be transported to that era! ( )

Re: description from back of book -- And so she claims? Er, Hyacinth does speak Italian. It's not like she's pretending...This book is fun. Gareth is Lady Danbury's grandson, and I've liked her all through the rest of the Bridgerton books. Gareth is a fun character, although he shares some characteristics with Simon from "The Duke and I" - although only vaguely - in that they have severe parental issues. They're still very different characters, though. Hyacinth is also fun, although sometimes she gets on your nerves (although I think she's supposed to, actually, so it's alright). A good book! ( )

I always enjoy checking in with the Bridgertons, and this book was lots of fun. ( )

When I found a Bridgerton novel on my to-be-read shelf I was floored, "How could I have missed this?!" Once the eBook was loaded and I began reading, I had the sneaking suspicion that I hadn't. That's right, I'd read it before, never marked it as TBR, and couldn't remember from the blurb that I had already read it. To be fair, Hyacinth Bridgerton was a long running favorite, so she was always sound familiar, it was the description of Gareth that let me down. Once I saw him on the page, read him interacting with his grandmother and Hyacinth, I knew I had met him before.

A sweet book with a strong heroine that manages to fall in love without trading away any pieces of her own confidence, I greatly enjoyed seeing Hyacinth and Gareth find their happily ever after, even for the second time. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006053124X, Mass Market Paperback)

Meet Our Hero . . .
Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth's sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past . . . and the key to his future. The problem is—it's written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word.

Meet Our Heroine . . .
All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She's fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken, and according to Gareth, probably best in small doses. But there's something about her—something charming and vexing—that grabs him and won't quite let go . . .

Meet Poor Mr. Mozart . . .
Or don't. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and annually discordant—Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth's every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other . . . and that there is nothing as simple—or as complicated—as a single, perfect kiss.
