Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn


7 Critic Reviews

Julia Quinn creates utterly charming characters...
-Christian Science Monitor


Once again, #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn transports her readers to historical romance heaven! Quinn’s Just Like Heaven is the dazzling first installment of a delightful quartet of Regency Era-set tales featuring the romantic exploits of the well-meaning but less-than-accomplished Smythe-Smith musicians—in this case, a beautiful violinist in the pitiful group who has her sights set on marrying the last unwed Bridgerton…unless her handsome, love-struck guardian has anything to say about it. Bridgerton fans will cry, “Encore!”—as will every reader who adores England’s Regency period and great love stories that are smart, witty, and lighthearted.

Quinn is an expert...The first book in her new Smythe- Smith Quartet is a sweet romp but predictable.

...new readers might wonder what the fuss is about, and their enjoyment of the Smythe-Smith recitals as they read Quinn’s backlist may be severely distorted.

I 'm thrilled that Julia Quinn has finally decided to tell a story from the Smythe-Smith side of the dreaded Smythe-Smith musicals.

An addictive mix of sparkling dialogue, tender romance and moments of laugh-out-loud hilarity give the adventures of Honoria and Marcus a light touch and a lively pace.

...I thought there was too much attention spent on Marcus’s illness and Honoria’s nursing of him...why render these few days in such exhaustive detail that out of a 374 page book, over 130 pages are devoted to this illness?

This story was an absolutely, positively delicious treat (better even, than chocolate cake) that fans of Julia Quinn or simply lovers of a wonderfully humorous romance are sure to enjoy over and over again.
