Review ~ The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

20 November 2018

My thanks to the publishers for my copy of this book
Number One New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn returns to the world of the Bridgertons with the third novel in her latest series

My thoughts about it..

When Poppy Bridgerton is abducted by pirates, she does not expect to find herself held against her will on a ship heading for the high seas and bound for Lisbon. The dashing Captain Andrew James Rokesby, is equally horrified when he finds Poppy is holed up in his quarters and although the gradual realisation of who she is takes him by surprise, he cannot allow any sentiment to get in the way of his mission. That the enigmatic captain has his own secrets is obvious from the start and yet, his instant rapport with the intrepid Poppy fills the story with a delicious sense of  dangerous adventure and illicit passion.

The author does this type of Regency romance/adventure really well and those who have followed the Rokesby series from the beginning will find much to enjoy in this third book. There is a nice sense of continuity, with references to some of the characters we have met before in books one and two of the series and yet,  for readers who are new to this author's work, this continuation can be read easily as a stand-alone as the plot is very easy to follow and the reference to previous characters are well explained within the context of the story.

I read The Other Miss Bridgerton over the space a couple of afternoons. The story has a nice blend of historical adventure, passion and excitement, everything, in fact, that I have come to expect from this talented author’s writing.
