A New York Times Bestseller From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Hyacinth Bridgerton, in the seventh of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix. HYACINTH'S STORY 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.… (more)

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 loved the dynamic between Gareth and Hyacinth, they had great chemistry and the storyline was engaging throughout. ( )

The variety of stories in this series is admirable. This is so clever. ( )

Pretty good, Julia Quinn is great but this is a lesser book. I never did connect with the two protagonists or the plot. ( )
  Bookjoy144 | Mar 2, 2022 |
Predictable plot, but humorously memorable. ( )

Dedication
For Steve Axelrod, for a hundred different reasons. (But especially the caviar!)
And also for Paul, even though he seems to think I'm the sort of person who likes to share caviar.
First words
There were four principles governing Gareth St. Clair's relationship with his father that he relied upon to maintain his good humor and general sanity.
