This was a cute romance and I liked the teensy bit of adventure we got. Hyacinth is the youngest Bridgerton and her mother, Violet, is fairly desperate to marry her off. Hyacinth is a beautiful young girl, but she is headstrong and opinionated which hasn't resulted in too many proposals. She doesn't mind though - none of those men challenged or excited her. It may come as no surprise that one of her biggest role models is the indomitable Lady Danbury, yet when Danbury tries to parade her grandson, Gareth, in front of her; Hyacinth isn't interested. The two keep finding their paths crossing and when he turns to her for help translating his grandmother's Italian diary they become fairly inseparable. What they discover takes them on a treasure hunt but maybe there is more than one treasure to look for. Not a deep romance, but definitely very steamy. ( )

Gareth St Clair has problems, his father detests him and seems to be determined to run the estates to the ground. He has a diary that might tell him things but it's written in italian and he doesn't.
He's directed to Hyacinth Brigerton; outspoken and smart she is determined to make her life her own.Gareth intrigues her but she wasn't someone who wants her, not just her dowry.
It's a fun read and the two characters spark well off each other. I really enjoyed how they kept searching for the jewels and how that all resolved.
I did feel the pain of the concert. ( )

For those familiar with the Bridgerton TV series, Hyacinth Bridgerton is a little girl who doesn’t have much of an impact on the story of her brothers and sisters. But for readers of the books, Hyacinth has been more and more interesting as time goes on. She’s more outspoken than Eloise, but as feminine as Daphne. She’s also incredibly clever, so much so that her tongue is feared by many. (To illustrate Hyacinth’s wit further, Lady Danbury, Queen of the Dry Wit, fully supports and enjoys Hyacinth’s observations). But this wouldn’t be a Bridgerton story if there wasn’t romance and a wedding. This time, it’s Hyacinth’s turn.

Hyacinth has already turned down several marriage proposals by the time the story starts. Her intelligence means that she finds a lot of people boring, which is why she spends time reading to Lady Danbury once a week. (They read scurrilous romance novels). Hyacinth has always been aware of Lady D’s grandson Gareth, but now he needs her help. Gareth is of course a rake, but just as intelligent as Hyacinth. (Except that he doesn’t read Italian, which is why he needs Hyacinth’s help to translate his grandmother’s diary). The diary has Gareth and Hyacinth on the trail of some hidden jewels, made all the more complex by their need to break into Gareth’s father’s house to track them down. Of course, they find they have much more in common than adventure…

Hyacinth’s story is a total riot. It has everything you expect, plus all the nameless things you didn’t know that you wanted. (Like climbing through windows in the middle of the night, some pretty bad music and even worse poetry). Gareth and Hyacinth are well matched when it comes to wit, so Julia Quinn’s sparkling dialogue gets a great run, plus the sparking comments from Lady Danbury are always a treat. There is also a cruel villain in Gareth’s bitter father and some sweet moments between Hyacinth and her mother Violet. Hyacinth is the star here though – she is outspoken, determined, stubborn and yet completely likeable. Gareth is a little flawed with a couple of odd choices, but his love for Lady D redeemed him in my eyes.

This might just be my favourite Bridgerton novel. Netflix had better commission this one!

It’s in His Kiss - Quinn

It’s about time; the romance and marriage of Hyacinth, the youngest Bridgerton. I couldn’t really see the romantic appeal of the hero. But, there was good entertainment value in the Tuesday meetings of Hyacinth and Lady Danbury for readings of Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron. ( )

Hyacinth Bridgerton is the youngest and most outspoken of the Bridgertons. She would like to marry as six of her seven siblings are happily married. Gareth St. Clair is the despised son of a father who is sure that Gareth is a bastard. The father is determined to run the estate into the ground before Gareth can inherit it. He also holds his parentage over Gareth's head.

Gareth and Hyacinth meet because of Lady Danbury, Gareth's grandmother. When Gareth is given a journal kept by his Italian grandmother, he learns that Hyacinth speaks and reads the language. Hyacinth learns a secret as she translates - the grandmother had diamonds she didn't tell her husband or son about. Gareth and Hyacinth begin a treasure hunt to find them before his father does and fritters them away.

This one was a sexier episode than many in the series since Gareth decides he needs to compromise her so that she can't back out of their engagement. Hyacinth is in love with him and would not back out for any reason but Gareth finds it hard to believe that.

Great episode. ( )
