Book Description

6 July 2006 Bridgerton Family (Book 8)

Unlike most men of his acquaintance, Gregory Bridgerton is a firm believer in true love. He'd have to be an idiot not to be: all seven of his siblings are happily married. Gregory figures he is just biding his time until the right woman comes along. And so when he sees Hermione Watson, he knows with every fibre of his being, that she is meant to be his.

But through Hermione's closest - and slightly less beautiful - friend, Lucy Abernathy, he finds out that Hermione is desperately in love with another man. Sadly by the time Gregory figures out the right girl is actually the wrong girl, and the right girl was Lucy all along, it's too late. Lucy is to marry another! Now - on the way to the wedding - Gregory must figure out how to thwart the nuptials and convince Lucy that she was always meant to be his

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bridgertons come to an end 3 July 2007
By Book Gannet TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gregory Bridgerton believes in love; with seven besottedly happy siblings, he'd be a fool not to. But he's never been in love himself, and at the ripe old age of twenty-six, he's just ready and waiting for it to happen. Any day now. No rush, you know. It would just be nice...

Then he sees her. Just the back of her neck, but it's enough, and it's perfect. It's love.

Being the best friend of Hermione Watson is not always the easiest of tasks, because Hermione is beautiful. In the three years of their friendship, Lady Lucy Abernathy has seen a lot of lovesick fools, and can spot one at twenty paces. When Gregory Bridgerton joins the rest, Lucy realises that this is the man her friend should marry, because he's just so much better than the rest.

But Hermione has different ideas, and a love in mind all of her own. She saw the back of his neck, and she just knew...

And so the final Bridgerton tale is upon us, and it's back to the witty romps that Julia Quinn excels at, and while we're at it, we'll take a side swipe at love at first sight. Poor Gregory, like Francesca he's been one of the quiet Bridgertons, but appearences from Anthony, Kate, Violet, Hyacinth and Colin manage to keep it in the family. That doesn't mean that Gregory doesn't suffer. In fact I think it's safe to say that (with the possible exception of Daphne in 'The Duke and I') no Bridgerton has ever had to work harder to gain their HEA.

When he finally figures out what it is he's working for, that is.

Lucy herself is a sweet-natured mixture of practicality and loyalty. She likes things to be nice and neat for everyone, and does all she can to keep it that way.

3.0 out of 5 stars ...Not with a bang but a whimper 11 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So, it was the last one. I was both looking forward to it and dreading saying goodbye to the Bridgertons.
It wasn't bad as I had been afraid it might be, with high expectations and all. Great plot and romance and the meet-cutes, all in place. Gregory Bridgerton though is not as well-defined as his brothers and he's right in suspecting that he isn't as heroic as they are. But towards the end, just as he is coming up to mark, Lucy, the wonderful tenacious Lucy, says to Lord Haselby, who has been established as NOT being interested in women, and from whom she herself has just escaped most fortunately, 'But do you still wish for a wife? Because I could help you find one, once I'm settled that is.'
A heroine I had rooted for and liked throughout the book suddenly changes and emerges as this cruel woman, who is happy to make another woman a victim of a loveless, sexless marriage. Why? It was a terrible betrayal. I wish it could be edited and got rid of, because it leaves such a bad taste in the mouth. The rest of the book pales in comparison to this huge let down. At least for me it did. Lucy Abernathy transformed in a space of minutes from heroine to antagonist. Not a way to remember the last Bridgerton book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but not up to par 3 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many of Julia Quinn's books but I have to say that towards the end of the Bridgerton series I began to feel that things were getting a little repetitive.

I have long been a fan of regency romance (first introduced to Georgette Heyer by my grandmother as a young teenager) and was introduced to Julia Quinn by a friend quite recently. What instantly struck me about Julia Quinn's books was the strength of characters. The few historical inaccuracies, though noticeable do not generally detract from the story.

Unfortunately, though this book was still an enjoyable read, I was a little disappointed. I felt the lead characters, Gregory and Lucy, were not as well developed as normal and as the series progressed I found that the characters from the previous books in this series become increasingly stilted with the exception of Violet Bridgerton.

It would also find it refreshing if the "naughty" scenes had a little more variety to them from book to book, they seem to be written to a formula.

I recommed this book as a conclusion to the rest of the series but I would not recommend it as the starting point for anyone reading the books out of sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love end to the series 3 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like Gregory. He is clearly a romantic, a bit iike his brother Benedict. He was bound to be seeing his 7 siblings happily married. I must admit though, after that very funny conversation between him and Hyacinth in "It's in His Kiss", I expected more of wit. Instead I wanted to shake him at the beginning of this book for being such a lovesick fool, mooning over Miss Watson when clearly Lucy was made for him. . It didn't help that at that point we were reintroduced to my favourite Bridgerton couple Anthony and Kate and I couldn't help but want to read more about them instead. Still once Gregory had realised where his heart lay I couldn't help but root for him and Lucy. The story became very exciting and this is the first time I have had to read straight through to the end because I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next.

All in all, very satisfactory end to the series. I will now check out the second epilogue in "The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After."
