I saw this book online last night and wanted to read it right away, but I couldn't bring myself to pay more for the e-book than the paperback, so I let it go. I suddenly remembered that I had an Audible audiobook trial, and downloaded this audiobook immediately. I hate audiobooks, so for me to listen for 9 hours, you know it has to be good.
In spite of some anachronisms, this book is fun, entertaining, and made me smile more than a few times. The hero is fabulous. George Rokesby is all seriousness and calm to Billie's tomboyish charm. He's the Mr. Darcy of modern day romance - such a stick in the mud, but still totally dashing and completely loyal to his family and friends. Billie Bridgerton is quite the young miss. Spunky and sassy, but not annoying in the least as these types of heroines can sometimes be.
If you're looking for fluffy, fun romance this is the book for you. I stayed up well into the wee hours of the morning with the Rokesbys and Bridgertons and am very much looking forward to the next book in the series. I will certainly be reading more from Julia Quinn.

Hooray! The Bridgertons are back! This time it's Billie, who will later become the aunt of the family we know so well. Now we know where those children got their, umm, spunk.
Billie is feisty, brave, unafraid and totally hates her neighbor, George. We first meet them as George rescues Billie from a roof with the help of his brother. G and B spar constantly and we loyal readers know this can only end one way. And it's fun getting to the HEA. Mallet of Death indeed!
This wasn't my favorite but it's Julia Quinn so it's good to start with. I thought the storyline with Arbuthnot was a bit contrived and unresolved. Maybe the author will get back to that. Because of that, I felt the ending was a bit odd.
The narration was perfect as only Rosalyn Landor can do. A delight to listen to.
I look forward to more of this new series.

The narrator was good but the story was unimaginative and boring. Not Julia Quinn's best.
Rosalyn Landor is a great narrator and is great at separating the characters. The story was a bit slow moving and had no real excitement but it was very easy to listen to and you could visualise George's frustration with billy I look forward to hearing about Andrew and Edwards stories
