Honestly one of my least favorite in the series. I didn't love the premise and also... it's so hard to imagine a love story with the younger siblings. They are still little kids to me! Anyways - the last installment of the series focuses on Gregory - the last unmarried of the eight Bridgerton kids. He is in no rush to be married or choose a profession but unexpectedly he falls madly in love with the back of a woman's neck at a ball. It was as if he was struck by a thunderbolt - Hermoine is the most beautiful and dazzling person he's ever met. He's POSITIVE that she is the one. Hermoine is not remotely interested in Gregory any of the other boys that fawn all over her - she is in love with another - and her best friend, Lady Lucinda has to step in and warn him off. Instead of deterring him it makes him only more determined to win Hermoine's heart. Why can't he see what's right in front of her? Some twists and turns at the end. Just a so so installment. Now I'm on to the prequels! ( )

On the Way to the Wedding is the final novel in the Bridgerton series (although there are several prequels and second epilogues, the latter of which are included in some copies of the books). This time the focus turns to youngest son Gregory, who has been in the shadow of his older brothers for the other books. He’s best known for sparring with his younger sister Hyacinth, and this continues in this story. Gregory turns out to be quite a sweet soul with a daring adventurous streak. However, I really enjoyed the wilder second half of this story. The first half was sweet and sedate, but just not as exciting.

Gregory is now all grown up and thinking that he should look for a wife. His own mother said it best when she said that Gregory has never really had to try too hard for anything and this is what it seems like at the start. Gregory attends a house party at elder brother Anthony’s country estate and instantly falls in love with Hermione. The problem is that every other man fancies himself in love with her but Hermione only has eyes for her father’s secretary. Hermione’s best friend Lucy offers Gregory advice on how to get Hermione to notice him but he’s still not very successful. He finds himself talking more and more with Lucy, who is much more pragmatic and ordered than Hermione could dream of. Gregory and Lucy find themselves independently falling for each other, but Lucy was promised to Lord Haselby many years ago. As her wedding to him draws closer, Gregory makes his feelings known but Lucy’s dedication to Hermione and her brother outweighs her love. Can Gregory stop the wedding? Or find some way for love to win?

This is a romance, so of course you know that Lucy and Gregory are going to get together. The second half packs more drama and action than the Bridgertons have ever seen in 24 hours, which made it very exciting. I wasn’t quite as sold on the first half as the pace is a lot more measured and not knowing Gregory, I wasn’t really so sure what to expect. I didn’t really understand Gregory and Lucy’s devotion to Hermione who is nice enough, but a bit stupid. Seeing more of Kate (Anthony’s wife) was the highlight of this half, with second place going to the detailed discussions on food! Hyacinth’s presence in the second half is as expected – raucous, brutally honest and determined to protect her brother at all costs. Her dialogue is some of the best, followed by mother Violet’s observations on Gregory.

It’s sad to have come to the end of the Bridgerton series but it does give me an opportunity to explore Julia Quinn’s other novels, which really need to be re-released in paperback (hint hint).

Gregory Bridgerton definitely believes in love. How could he not when he's seen all seven of his siblings make brilliant love matches? So when he attends a house party hosted by his eldest brother and sister-in-law and is struck dumb by the beauty of Hermione Watts, he knows it must be love. The only problem is Hermione doesn't feel the same at all and is honestly bored by the whole thing as men seem to fall in love with her on a daily basis. Gregory's only support is Hermione's best friend, Lady Lucinda Abernathy, who thinks Gregory would be a good fit for Hermione. But as Gregory and Lucy spend time together plotting, they discover it might not be Hermione who is Gregory's perfect match.

Approached just as another entry in the Bridgerton series, this is a perfectly charming romance novel but don't expect it to be an epic wrap up of this eight-book saga. Gregory and Lucy's romance is decidedly higher drama than any other entry in the series but our two leads are just as sweet and endearing as any other Bridgerton couple. There's plenty of the humour and banter that I so enjoy but this novel won't be making my list of favourites in the series. ( )

Gregory Bridgerton attends his sister-in-law Kate's house party and falls in love with Hermione at first glance. Hermione's best friend Lucy is used to it. Hermoine is beautiful and charming. Hermoine is also in love with her father's secretary and not interested in any other man.

Since Lucy knows that Hermione's parents would never let her marry a secretary, she decides to try to help Gregory in his suit. She certainly didn't expect to fall in love with him herself. After all, she's sort of engaged to another man.

But there are kisses and compromising positions and traitors and other romances to complicate both their lives. Her brother falls for Hermione and compromises her which is okay since Hermione has fallen out of love with the secretary and into love with the brother.

Gregory proposes to Lucy who accepts but her uncle forces her to marry the other guy who is gay in order to save the family from scandal. Gregory interrupts the wedding and then crashes the reception where everything comes to a head, traitors are unmasked, and the correct couples end up together.

I enjoyed this story. Great characters. ( )

This book is really quite ridiculous but now all the Bridgerton's have had their HEAs. ( )
