A funny thing happened . . .

Unlike most men of his acquaintance, Gregory Bridgerton believes in true love. And he is convinced that when he finds the woman of his dreams, he will know in an instant that she is the one. And that is exactly what happened. Except . . .

She wasn't the one. In fact, the ravishing Miss Hermione Watson is in love with another. But her best friend, the ever-practical Lady Lucinda Abernathy, wants to save Hermione from a disastrous alliance, so she offers to help Gregory win her over. But in the process, Lucy falls in love. With Gregory! Except . . .

Lucy is engaged. And her uncle is not inclined to let her back out of the betrothal, even once Gregory comes to his senses and realizes that it is Lucy, with her sharp wit and sunny smile, who makes his heart sing. And now, on the way to the wedding, Gregory must risk everything to ensure that when it comes time to kiss the bride, he is the only man standing at the altar . . .

I didn't feel like there was that much chemistry between the characters, I feel like they would be a better fit as friends, since they were more comfortable as friends than lovers. Really didn't see them more than friends.

Gregory instantly fell in love with Herimone because... well you know that romantic love that we all expect and want from books like this. Oh but Lucy, who is Herimone's BFF, doesn't believe in romantic love, but hey I don't blame her. She is very blunt and straightforward and total nonsense...only because she had not fallen in love. So Lucy tries so hard to have Herimone and Gregory fall in love.....but do things go the way they are suppose to? Nope!

The climax.... uhhh.... OK. Seemed very dramatic and anti-climatic. I rather like Lord Haselby, he was quite the interesting character, would have loved to seen more of him!

I remember being slightly dissatisfied by this, the eighth and final Bridgerton book, the first time I read the series, but upon a second reading I'm more favorably inclined. It's still not my absolute favorite of the eight, but it's a clever and funny historical romance with two very likable protagonists (and a suitably melodramatic villain), and I actually think Gregory is a really interesting hero (who benefits nicely from readers having spent seven books watching him grow up). A solid conclusion to what remains my favorite romance series evereverever.

First book of Julia Quinn's that I've read. I've started with the last book in the series so I'm not gonna bother reading them in order. Pretty good. Although he says I love you too many times for my taste. But how else can you say it if you really do?I will read the rest of the series.
