Description
Once again, #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn transports her readers to historical romance heaven! Quinn's Just Like Heaven is the dazzling first installment of a delightful quartet of Regency Era-set tales featuring the romantic exploits of the well-meaning but less-than-accomplished Smythe-Smith musicians—in this case, a beautiful violinist in the pitiful group who has her sights set on marrying the last unwed Bridgerton...unless her handsome, love-struck guardian has anything to say about it. Bridgerton fans will cry, "Encore!"—as will every reader who adores England's Regency period and great love stories that are smart, witty, and lighthearted.

        June 15, 2011

        Reprising incidental characters from her popular Bridgerton series, Quinn launches a new quartet featuring the memorable Smythe-Smith family of stunningly discordant musicale fame with a witty romp that has a pair of childhood friends resisting their feelings because they couldn't possibly be in love with each other--could they? An accident and a brush with death turn their preconceptions upside down--just in time for misunderstandings to complicate things even further. VERDICT Lively, swiftly paced, and often hilarious, this engaging story overflows with likable characters and will keep readers laughing, flipping pages, and happily rooting for caring, sensitive Honoria and honorable, conflicted Marcus finally to get it right. A delightful start to a promising series. Quinn (Ten Things I Love About You) lives in the Seattle area.

        Starred review from June 1, 2011
        Marcus Holyrod is a man of his word. He promised Daniel Smythe-Smith, his best friend in the world, that he would not let Daniel's sister Honoria marry an idiot. Since Lady Honoria Smythe-Smith seems hell-bent on acquiring a husbandand since Daniel is currently sojourning in Italy due to a dueling contretempsit would seem that it truly is up to Marcus to keep Honoria from marrying the wrong man. Of course, if Marcus keeps eliminating candidates for the position of the future Mr. Honoria Smythe-Smith, Honoria is going to be left with very few options, other than considering marrying Marcus himself. Few romance writers are as skilled at choreographing the complicated dance of romance as Quinn, and with her latest irresistibly clever Regency historical, the Busby Berkeley of romance fiction sweeps readers off into an exhilaratingly witty waltz of words they won't soon forget.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)

        January 20, 2003
        This rewarding Regency-era anthology is connected by Quinn's popular gossip columnist, Lady Whistledown, who appeared in her previous novel, Romancing Mister Bridgerton. Each short romance features commentary from the society snoop and unfurls over the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day, 1814. Characters meet, plots intersect, and cleverly, each author includes the same skating party (shown from the perspective of the four couples). Though all of the authors hold their own in this collection, Enoch's tale of a young woman who resists a childhood betrothal until her long-absent fiancé returns to make her reconsider is the strongest. Quinn also delivers a tasty confection about a young lady suddenly wooed by two brothers. Hawkins's romance between an eccentric spinster and an amiable rake is the most traditional of the lot, while Ryan stretches the bounds of the genre with a hero whose odd behavior stems from more than simple eccentricity. All in all, these Regency bonbons are filled with the wit and charm that mark the authors' full-length novels, yet they still contain enough passion to keep wintry readers warm. A wonderful introduction to the contributors' work, this is a perfect Valentine for romance readers. (Feb.)Forecast:With its star-studded lineup and well-timed release, this exceptional anthology will likely be one of the holiday's most sought-after romances.

        February 15, 2003
        Once again the witty, provocative comments of Lady Whistledown, Julia Quinn's astute Regency-era gossip columnist (introduced in The Duke and I) grace the pages of a lively romantic romp-but this time there's a difference. Instead of one author, there are four; and instead of one story, there is a quartet of charming novellas, each focusing on a particular couple but linked by common events and all tied together by Lady Whistledown's wry, insightful observations. The abnormally cold winter of 1814 (complete with ice-skating parties on the Thames), assorted soir es and theater evenings, and a much-anticipated Valentine's Day ball provide the backdrops for romances depicted from the perspective not only of the protagonists but of other characters as well. Readers should enjoy the variety. The engaging tales by Quinn ("Thirty-Six Valentines"), Suzanne Enoch ("One True Love"), Karen Hawkins ("Two Hearts"), and Mia Ryan ("A Dozen Kisses") are nicely unified by both Lady Whistledown's comments and the well-integrated story details. A perfect Valentine's Day read.
