Updated 2021: This is my favorite book in the Bridgerton series, I have read it over and over again.
I loved this book! Anthony and Kate were so funny – their witty jabs back and forth were very entertaining. Julia Quinn did such a great job describing the settings and characters for this historical romance. She made it very easy to forget that I was wrapped up in a completely different time!
I will definitely be rereading this book again and again.
