3.0 out of 5 stars A Night Like This..., 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Night Like This: Book 2 of The Smythe-Smith Quartet (Kindle Edition)
This is the second book in the Smythe- Smith Quartet by Julia Quinn, following Just Like Heaven (Smythe-Smith Quartet), where we were first introduced to the protagonists of this book. Daniel, Earl of Winstead, has just returned to England from exile in Europe, after a drunken duel caused him to lame and almost kill a friend, and incur the fury of his powerful father. Anne Wynters is a governess to one of the many branches of the Smythe-Smith family, but she also has a secret and knows what it is like to be afraid. A Night Like This, explores their growing relationship as circumstances, and madmen, try to keep them apart.

I enjoyed this book. Like Just like Heaven, it still was not up to the high standards as some of Quinn's earlier books, but I still found myself engrossed, despite the missing spark. There were several times I found myself laughing out-loud at Quinn's humorous and lightning paced dialougue, especially at the scenes involving Annes charges, the young Smythe-Smiths. I found myself liking Daniel some more than Anne, whose character was quite conflicting at times, but my favourite character was Hugh Prentice, the man who Daniel shot. After the end of the book, I found myself very much hoping that he would be the hero of the next book of the Smythe- Smith quartet.

Actually, I have to agree, I did enjoy the dialogue which included the three young girls and loved the way Daniel seemed a little befuddled by it! As one of four children I've seen my husband (an only child) reduced to the same level of bewilderment when visiting my family!

Is it necessary to provide a synopsis as you do? I don't feel it adds much to your otherwise very good and fair review which I almost didn't read because I thought it was going to be one of those reviews that provides only a summary of the book - sorry!
