About the Author

Julia Quinn is the pseudonym used by Julie Pottinger (born Julie Cotler in 1970), a best-selling American historical romance author. Pottinger grew up in the New England and California. She has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List nine times. Pottinger went to Harvard and majored in Art mostrar mais History. After getting this degree, she decided that she wanted to be a doctor, so she had to complete two more years of college to fulfill her science credits. While studying science, she drafted two romance novels. A few weeks after she was accepted to medical school, she discovered that her first two novels, Splendid and Dancing At Midnight, had been sold at auction, so she postponed medical school for two years while she wrote two more novels. By the time Pottinger finally entered Yale medical school, three of her books had been published. After only a few short months of studying medicine, however, she left medical school and devoted herself full-time to her writing. Pottinger lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Paul Pottinger. She was the recipient of the Romance Writers of America RITA Award in 2007 for "On the Way to the Wedding" and in 2008 for "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever". In 2015 her novel, The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy made the New York Times bestseller list. Julia's title, Because of Miss Bridgerton, is a April 2016 New York Times bestseller.

Conhecimento Comum



I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (Avon) for promotional purposes.

I just want to preface this review by saying this is only the second Bridgerton book I’ve read. I previously read The Duke and I (which I enjoyed). I have watched the show and at the time of writing this review, have watched the first half of Season 3. Because of that, I obviously knew some of the big plot points (i.e. Penelope being Lady Whistledown).

I ended up loving Colin and Penelope’s story!

First off, Colin calls Penelope “the most remarkable woman in the world” (pg. 423). I whole heartedly agree. The fact that she was Lady Whistledown for 10 years is impressive. What a smart woman!

I liked Penelope and Colin together. The fact that they were both writers was really cute and I loved how Penelope encouraged Colin to pursue publishing his work. Colin definitely lacked a purpose in life until Penelope came along and guided him.

Additionally, I loved Lady Danbury and Penelope’s interactions. Lady Danbury took a liking to Penelope which helped her come out of her wallflower shell more.

The pacing of the story was good and the drama surrounding the unmasking of Lady Whistledown made for an interesting and fun read.

Overall, I really enjoyed this installment to the Bridgerton series and look forward to seeing the rest of it play out onscreen.

The worst Bridgerton story so far. Colin and Penelope are terrible individually, and they only work as a couple because Quinn is forced to tell us they are over and over in spite of [insert literally all of the reasons].

Makes the bee situation of Book 2 feel totally plausible.

I love Julia Quinn's books because she does such great families. She shows the love and sibling rivalry and the tolerating strange relatives beautifully. I especially liked this book because I am a sucker for a shy hero. Marcus was so nice, and so awkward once he fell in love. He and Honoria made a great couple, and it was nice to see a couple comfortable with each other so falling in love is a culmination rather than a shock.

I love flawed and tortured heroes, and Simon was that without it being unbelievable that anyone could like him. And Daphne was just wonderful. Their whole issue about children was heartbreaking, and its resolution a bit surprising. All in all, a great start to a wonderful series.
