The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown by Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch, Karen Hawkins & Mia Ryan

I figured that I would thoroughly enjoy this collection just because it was created by Julia Quinn and featured the character of Lady Whistledown in some way, shape or form. What I didn’t expect was how brilliantly each of these four stories related in to one another. Mostly I was expecting four separate novellas with Lady Whisteldown’s witty repertoire at the very beginning. What I didn’t expect was to find each of the characters from the novellas in each other’s stories.

Thirty-Six Valentines by Julia Quinn

What a fantastic way to round out the collection of The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown. This was kind of funny, seriously unique and very, very cute. It also ended with a happily ever after. The final of the four couples to get their romantic, beautiful ending. Definitely the kind of novella that I love to read. Just thinking about it all over again gives me the happy feelings.

A Dozen Kisses by Mia Ryan

I really couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next in the The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown collection. After all, even though these are independent novellas, there is still this great sense of continuity throughout the storyline. One that I love figuring out, even as I fall in love more and more with the characters in each individual tale.

Two Hearts by Karen Hawkins

One of my favourite romance tropes is the one of friends to lovers. After all, it’s a relationship that is being built on an incredibly strong base. So finding one that is both a regency romance, a tale of individuality and close friends turning to lovers… it definitely put me in my happy place.

One True Love by Suzanne Enoch

I was intrigued to see how the first novella in the The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown collection would be like. After all, I had just finished the Bridgertons by Julia Quinn, and needed it to be in somewhat of the same vein as her writings. Otherwise, in my mind, the collection just really wouldn’t work. And I was lucky. Because Enoch was able to write entirely within the same bounds and completely fascinated me with her wonderful, cute and sweet story. That, in true form, was filled with lots of sass.
