Penelope is one of my favorite Quinn heroines so far. She is smart, funny and sweet, and simply fun to read.
I've been waiting on Colin and Penelope's romance to take center stage for a while now, so I was happy to pick up this installment in the Bridgerton series. And the story does get to a quick, witty start with a heroine who is just too relatable (Penelope's weight comes up several times and it was a delight to have the heroine of a romance novel enjoy so much good food). Penelope, of course, has loved Colin for years and he finally sees her as who she really is, prompted by his discovery of a secret she's been keeping. Overall, I loved this book and I was so happy to see a long-awaited relationship finally materialize.
I’ve been so looking forward to this Bridgerton book, and I was not disappointed! I always enjoy a romance when the leads get together before the very end, so the reader gets to see them happy together for a while. Highlights for me (besides swoony scenes with the lovebirds) were the unruly younger Bridgerton siblings, Colin’s outrage at the Featheringtons, Lady Danbury being Lady Danbury, and Cressida’s comeuppance.
This edition had a second epilogue written years after the original publication, and it was a winner too. Of the four Bridgerton books I’ve read in the series, I think this is my favorite.

Has as a supplement
A New York Times Bestseller From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington, in the fourth of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix. COLIN AND PENELOPE'S STORY Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend's brother for . . . well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret . . . and fears she doesn't know him at all. Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought of as nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can't seem to publish an edition without mentioning him. But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroad, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same--especially Penelope Featherington! The girl who was always simply there is suddenly the girl haunting his dreams. When he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide . . . is she his biggest threat-- or his promise of a happy ending?
