Review: Just like heaven by Julia Quinn


Titel: Just like heaven
Autor: Julia Quinn
Publisher: Piatkus 
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: Smythe-Smith Quartet #1
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Description (Amazon)
Honoria Smythe-Smith, the youngest daughter of the eldest son of the Earl of Winstead, plays the violin in the annual musicale performed by the Smythe-Smith quartet. She's well aware that they are dreadful. In fact, she freely admits (to her cousins) that she is probably the worst of the bunch. But she's the sort who figures that nothing good will come of being mortified, so she puts on a good show and     laughs about it. Marcus Holroyd is the best friend of Honoria's brother Daniel, who lives in exile out of the country. He's promised to watch out for Honoria and takes his responsibility very seriously. But he has his work cut out for him when Honoria sets off for Cambridge determined to marry by the end of the season. She's got her eye on the only unmarried Bridgerton, who's a bit wet behind the ears. When her advances are spurned, can Marcus swoop in and steal her heart in time for the musicale?
Reading Julia Quinn is like meeting an old friend. I was already very much looking forward to get this book into my hands and did indeed enjoy reading it enormously. Once again I was surprised how well Julia Quinn can write. Reading the dialogues between the two main protagonists is so much fun that I more than once had to laugh out load. As I have read the whole Bridgerton Series I was quite pleased that the famous Smythe-Smith girls would get their own series.
Honaria has a lovely character and can deal with her sometimes quite embarresing and tone-deaf family in a patient and still adorable way. With Marcus the author created a shy and humble male main character. As he is the best friend of the heroines older brother he is already part of the family. I loved that the classical gener roles are little bit bend in this book. Whereas Honoria is outgoing and rather active, Marcus is in an adorable way passive and shy. Furthermore Honoria saves the life of Marcus and during this event both realise that there is more than just platonic love between them.
I couldn't lay this book down and read it through in one session. This is a keeper.
