The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After by Julia Quinn

This is a great collection. Although my editions of the full-length novels often included the Second Epilogues, it was nice to have them all in one collection. Particularly since there is an extra novella at the very end that is not included in any other novel. Each and everyone of these stories not only makes you feel as though the story is actually completed, but they also give you happy, tingling feelings that leave a huge smile on your face.

Violet in Bloom by Julia Quinn

Through the whole series of The Bridgertons, one character continuously shows up and takes centre stage. So I was deliriously excited to read a novella that is all about her… the mother, the caretaker and, quite possibly, the most meddlesome character of all the Bridgertons. It certainly wasn’t the kind of story that I was expecting, but it really was a sweet way to completely round out the series. Now the books are all back on my shelves and I look forward to reading them all in the future!

On the Way to the Wedding – The Second Epilogue By Julia Quinn

I like that of all the Bridgerton siblings, it is the last one that seriously wants a whole slew of children. The last sibling who decides to do the same as his mother and have eight children. Which you find out at the end of On the Way to the Wedding. What I didn’t know I needed until this Second Epilogue was to find out what they named each of their children. Actually, just coming up with those names seems kind of ridiculous.

It’s In His Kiss – The Second Epilogue by Julia Quinn

One of my Mum’s favourite things to say to me is “I hope you have a daughter just like you”. It’s also something that gets said to Hyacinth throughout It’s In His Kiss. Which of course means that the second epilogue has to be partially about the daughter she has… who is exactly like her. Just as difficult, contrary and opinionated. I also love the fact that at the very conclusion of It’s In His Kiss, Isabella is also the one to solve the big mystery. Fast forward fifteen years and Hyacinth is still driving everyone nuts with her stubbornness.

When He Was Wicked – The Second Epilogue by Julia Quinn

I’ve never really thought that infertility and the difficulties of getting pregnant are talked about often enough. Not in real life, not in the media, not in books. Since When He Was Wicked not only started with Francesca having a miscarriage, but also her need to start her own family was a major driver, I was a bit put out when there wasn’t much discussion as to this aspect of hers and Michael’s future at the end of the novel. The Second Epilogue fixed this oversight in an incredibly powerful and meaningful manner.

To Sir Phillip, With Love – The Second Epilogue by Julia Quinn

Although they were completely impossible and terrifying… I actually fell completely in love with the Crane twins in Sir Phillip, With Love. There was just something about their need, their spirit and their intelligence that made me fall head over heels in love. So, when I turned to the first page of the second epilogue and found out that it was about Amanda… well, a huge grin broke out across my face.

An Offer from a Gentleman – The Second Epilogue by Julia Quinn

At the end of An Offer from a Gentleman, all I could think was “I hope that Posy gets her happily ever after”. After all, she tried to be a good sister to Sophie for years. And, ultimately, stood up for her at the detriment of the possibilities of her own future. Which all made me exceedingly happy when I started the first sentence of the second epilogue…. And found out that it was about Posy.

The Viscount Who Loved Me: The Second Epilogue by Julia Quinn

One of my favourite things about Kate and Anthony in The Viscount Who Loved Me was the fact that Kate and Anthony are constantly engaged in some kind of witty banter. This second epilogue highlights that aspect of their relationship. Through the game of Pall Mall. And the Mallet of Death. I love that they continue to play this game years after that first iconic game and continue their insane banter and competitiveness with each other.
