Review 'The Other Miss Bridgerton' by Julia Quinn

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37926279-the-other-miss-bridgertonShe was in the wrong place… 

Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgertonwill only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers' hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain's bed...

He found her at the wrong time... 

Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he's stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But no, she is very real-and his duty to the Crown means he's stuck with her.

Can two wrongs make the most perfect right? 

When Andrew learns that she is a Bridgerton, he knows he will likely have to wed her to avert a scandal-though Poppy has no idea that he is the son of an earl and neighbor to her aristocratic cousins in Kent. On the high seas, their war of words soon gives way to an intoxicating passion. But when Andrew's secret is revealed, will his declaration of love be enough to capture her heart...?

My Review:

I love Historical Romance novels, but I haven’t read one in a while. When I saw ‘The Other Miss Bridgerton’ on Netgalley I immediately requested it. I’ve read the first book in the Rokesbys series back in 2016 and loved it. Since this is the third book in the series I knew I had to read it, one way or another. So I was super excited when my request got approved and I started reading as soon as possible.

In ‘The Other Miss Bridgerton’ we meet Poppy. Poppy has always been independent and smart. But being smart as a woman isn’t always approved of. One day Poppy is walking by herself, while visiting a friend, when she discovers a smugglers hideaway. Before she knows what really happens, she is kidnapped and taken aboard a ship and left in the cabin of a captain. This captain is Andrew James, who is getting ready to go on a time-sensitive journey to Portugal. The last thing Andrew want to do is take Poppy with him. But unfortunately, he doesn’t have a choice.

Ever since my baby girl was born, I haven’t been able to read a book in a day. Which I definitely don’t mind because I’m completely in love with our girl and want to devote all my time to her. But when I started reading ‘The Other Miss Bridgerton’ I just simply couldn’t stop reading. I read this book on Sunday, we didn’t have any plans and I finished this book the same day I started it. I read when my girl was taking her nap, while I was breastfeeding her and after she went to bed in the evening. It was such a great read I just had to finish it.

I loved reading about Poppy. Poppy definitely was way to curious and smart for a woman in her time. But it was so fun to read about. And it was especially fun to read how Andrew reacted to her. He didn’t dislike the fact that Poppy was so smart, he enjoyed talking with her. Which was complicated seeing he kidnapped her. This really made for some fun moments.

Andrew was also a very fun character I loved getting to know. He was a captain on a smugglers ship. But right from the beginning it was clear that there was much more to his story. Finding out what really was his deal was so fun. And the romance.. Sigh.. That’s why I love Historical Romance so much. The courting, the desire, the romance.. I loved everything about this read and it was just perfect.

The fact that this story took place mostly aboard a ship made it even more fun. It was unusual, and added a little mystery that I loved. And lets face it, the whole captain on a ship part makes this book even more romantic. I definitely have to read more Julia Quinn novels.

My Rating:

About the Author:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

I received this book from the Little, Brown Book Group in exchange for my honest review.
