The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After by Julia Quinn

If you want to know if you should read this book, please answer the following questions:

a. Have you read at least five of the Bridgerton family books by historical romance author Julia Quinn?
b. Did you like them? (Except Francesca’s book. No one in their right mind liked Francesca’s book.)
c. Do you like new stories about characters you already know?
d. Did you fall at the zoo because you were carrying your child who is too large to be carried?
e. Did you spend the evening icing your bruised left foot and probably sprained right ankle?
f. Did you fall asleep on the couch with your legs elevated above your heart?
g. When you awoke and hobbled to the bathroom, did you manage to call out to your spouse/significant other right before you fainted on the potty?
h. After coming to, did you have cold sweats for 45 – 60 minutes, you can’t be sure how long because time had lost all meaning, but that’s how long your spouse/significant other said it was?
i. When you went to bed did stomach flu start, but no matter what you tried you couldn’t throw up?
j. Did you go to the bathroom to wait out the nausea and to continue trying to throw up?
k. Did you want something light to read to fill the time?
l. When you succeeded in throwing up (toothbrush), did your spouse/significant other call out a supportive “Yay!” from the bedroom?
m. Did you and your spouse/significant other go to the walk in clinic while your mother who is visiting and had planned to go with you to the Metropolitan Museum to see this exhibit stayed with your child?
n. Did you have three hours to fill at the walk in clinic while they confirmed your bruised left foot and definitely sprained right ankle?

If you answered, “yes” to these questions, this is the perfect book for you.

    Oof, that’s awful. I’m so sorry. I mean, it’s funny the way you wrote it, but I bet it wasn’t as funny to live it.

    On the other hand, congrats on the half-Cannonball!

    a. Thank you
    b. It’s mostly awkward now, not really painful.
    c. The book really was perfect for an exhausted, wounded and sick person.

    I’m so sorry you are in pain, and mostly confined to the sofa with your ankle elevated, but congratulations on finishing your half Cannonball! Also, you are so extremely right about Francesca’s book (the only Bridgerton novel I don’t own. It was dull, but still not as bad as Miss Miranda Cheever). I hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks, now I decide if I want to go for another half! You are very inspiring and I have TWO NEW BOOKS to start with.
