5.0 out of 5 stars The Mystery Of Lady Whistledown Intensifies..., 26 July 2002
This review is from: Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Avon Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
For those following the Bridgerton series by Ms Quinn, this tale is the fourth story about the seven Bridgerton series, but sibling number three, Mr Colin Bridgerton third child after Anthony, Benedict and before Daphne (The children have been named according to the alphabet from A to H). Penelope Featherington has been in love with the rather charming Colin for what seems like forever. Not that he noticed, having skipped out the country whenever he felt like it to get away from the label of third son of a viscount and his only chance of recognition is being mentioned in the notorious gossip column written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown as the most charming man in town - an opinion she often publishes! When Colin returns home to London after one of his many trips around Europe, he finds that nothing much has changed. Everything is still the same, society are still preocupied with the Whistledown papers, he is still metioned in them as the charming gentleman, but he begins to see Penelope in a new light. Then Penelope discovers Colin deepest secret and fear of being a nobody, but then Penelope harbours huge secrets of her own as Colin soon finds out! There is more to her than just the wall flower spinster and best friend of his sister, Eloise (subject of the next Bridgerton book). Then, just as Colin and Penelope's relationship begins to tenetatively blossom, Society is in an uproar as an influential society matron decides to offer one thousand pounds to the person who can unmask the mysterious Lady Whistledown to end the ennuii that has been fashionable of late and everything else is overshadowed by the frenzy of suspicions and rumours flying about who is Lady Whistledown. Can Colin and Penelope find their feet and feelings for each other admidst all the chaos? And just who is Lady Whistledown? Well you will just have to read the book to find out. This is a a refreshing and light historical romance and extremely entertaining. Its full of subtle wit and charm and for once the story is not overshadowed by murders or kidnappings or other dastardly dealings subplots that litter many recent romances published. Highly enjoyable and highly recommended, especially if you have read the previous Bridgerton novels.
