Enjoyable read. Not brilliant, and not a Bridgerton book, but enjoyable. The execution and writing are top-notch, but the plot and the dragging internal conflict with one of the protagonist runs on...and on. I honestly, love Quinn's book because I know it will be a good read, but this one had a great deal of telling rather than showing due to the psychological aspects to the drama. If your going to give Quinn a try for the first time, try a Bridgerton one. This book makes a fine plane, pool, or beach companion.
