I am enjoying each Bridgerton book more and more. Eloise and Phillip’s story is my favorite so far. While both strong characters, there is a fragility about them that is so realistic it tugs at your heart. There are moments of the Bridgerton humor I’ve come to love and appreciate, but I actually like the more tender tone of this book.
Eloise has been corresponding with Phillip since his wife passed away over a year ago. When he invites her to visit him to see if they might suit each other, Eloise (a spinster who is starting to feel lonely) decides to be daring and go by herself. She is surprised to find Phillip has a set of unruly twins. Having learned a little about each other through letters, they get to know each other quickly. And then Eloise’s four brothers show up on Phillip’s doorstep.
