Jula Quinn: Hilarious Author,
This review is from: To Catch an Heiress (Mass Market Paperback)
When I read a Julia Quinn I read it as I would any romance, forget the regency historical aspect, she's just brilliant. She's witty and enchanting and her female characters are always strong and funny. Caroline Trent has got to be one of the funniest characters ever. She's bubbly and intelligent and is always delivering a speech which will have the reader doubled-over because of the sheer hilarity of her comments.
Of course the fact that it's a regency means who cannot love the time period and setting? The only thing is that I'd have liked the spy plot to be a little more developed; I'd have liked an earlier appearance of Carlotta... maybe an attack on the house or something... the romance really good as was the comedy. The plot concerning the spies... could have been better.
But aside from that, love it.
