Welcome back to Book Club Thursday!
Today we are doing our...
I will be honest with you the reason I picked this post is because this is author I've meant to try and haven't yet. I know Cyndi at Born to Read Books loves her.
LADY BRIDGET'S DIARY
Keeping Up with the Cavendishes #1
Releasing February 23rd, 2016
Lord Darcy is the epitome of perfect
Lord Darcy is the quintessential Englishman: wealthy, titled, impossibly proper and horrified that a pack of Americans have inherited one of England’s most respected dukedoms. But his manners, his infamous self-restraint and better judgment fly out the window when he finds himself with the maddening American girl next door.
Lady Bridget is the opposite of perfect
Lady Bridget Cavendish has grand-but thwarted-plans to become a Perfect Lady and take the haute ton by storm. In her diary, Bridget records her disastrous attempts to assimilate in London high society, her adoration of the handsome rogue next door, her loathing of the Dreadful Lord Darcy and some truly scandalous secrets that could ruin them all.
They cannot stand each other-and yet they cannot stay away
It was loathing at first sight for Lady Bridget and Lord Darcy. But their paths keep crossing...and somehow involve kissing. When Lady Bridget’s diary goes missing, both Darcy and Bridget must decide what matters most of all-a sterling reputation or a perfectly imperfect love.
I'm going to try hard not to gush, but I really really really LOVED Lady Bridget's Diary.
It's filled with everything I want in my books- humor, warmth, great characters(both the good and bad ones)- it was also impossible to put down and so very very romantic.
What I also loved was this book was the modern style despite being a historical. It was fresh and breezy...with a touch of a soap-opera feel...OH SO FREAKING GOOD!
All of the characters are so well developed and the side stories are just as engaging. I wasn't bored once, and there was no dragging of the pace. It's going to be hard to wait for the next book in the series(but thankfully it's a short one).
Both Bridget and Darcy are strong, with huge hearts. The banter/back and forth between them was witty and realistic. There are some teary moments(I sniffled a few times) and Ms. Rodale knows how to deliver a bull's eye to both your heart and funny bone. Seriously, do not miss this book.
I have some of her backlist, and not only she is now on my auto-buy, I plan on reading and buying what I don't own ASAP.
Make sure to go to Cyndi's blog and see which post of mine she doesn't want you to miss.
