Summary

Meet our hero....

Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth’s sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past...and the key to his future. The problem is - it’s written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word.

Meet our heroine....

All the ton agreed: There was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She’s fiendishly smart, devilishly in small doses. But there’s something about her - something charming and vexing - that grabs him and won’t quite let go....

Meet poor Mr. Mozart....

Or don’t. But rest assured, he’s spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual - and annually discordant - Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth’s every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other...and that there is nothing as simple - or as complicated - as a single, perfect kiss.

another lovely story in the series - loved it

I am on my way to listening to all 8 Bridgerton books, some really enjoyable and a couple just enjoyable , but overall they have made this Lockdown bearable. Rosalyn Landor reads them to perfection.

Bridgerton + Cozy Mystery = Perfection!

Ahhh I just love this sweet lovely book. This has the light happy feels that I love from a JQ novels: low angst, low drama, no tears and little heartache.
This book really has the feel of a cozy mystery. When Garett receives his deceased italian grandmother’s diary he ask his other grandmother (none other than Lady Danbury herself) who might translate it. Enter Hyacinth Bridgerton, companion to Lady D and totally randomly also passable Italian speaker/translator. Gareth and Hyacinth are thus thrown together and mysteries are both resolved and resurfaced by the secrets uncovered in the diary. Along the way Gareth and Hyacinth fall in love. It just a sweet little story of scandal and shenanigans. There is drama with Gareth’s father being the big old jerk he is but it’s over shadowed by humor (death by pigeon pecks and jokes about prospective lisping progeny) and hijinks. The issues between Gareth and Hyacinth are pretty quickly resolved by Hyacinth’s “take the bull by its horns attitude” - talking their issues out and discussing rather than brooding. I just love that. You get the sense that these two are a team, a unit no matter how they might bicker and argue. I just love it and it fits so well in the Bridgerton universe. Highly recommend for that plus Lady D, plus Anthony, Violet and just the whole Bridgerton experience!

Great story 💕💕

REALLY enjoyed this story— it was funny and loving!! Gareths grandmother was so witty with her comments to both young people that made it very comical.
Also Gareth and Hyacinth made quirky remarks to each other that made them fall in love with each other!
I would listen to this book again as I am sure I missed a few things because I was laughing at some straight forward remark being made amongst the characters.
Thank you

Their story was so cute! Gareth was Hyacinth Partner in crime

I really love their story! Hyacinth was very stubborn, intelligent and witty. Gareth was charming, sarcastic and handsome, they made a really good match .

Even Rosalyn Landor couldn’t help .

Very thin story with with little character development. Extremely disappointed. Don’t waste a credit, remember the Bridgerton saga without this chapter.

Didn’t feel any chemistry with this one

The book that Hyacinth and Lady Danbury read together has more personality than the actual romance here. I did not care for the narrator’s rendition of Gareth. I found the dialogue dull. Other than her mom, and an oh-so-brief appearance by Antony, the family is missing. Unfortunately, without the fun of family, we’re left with a very ordinary regency between the usual precocious virgin and the standard rogue with a mistress and daddy issues. Should have stopped at book 5.

Oh, such fun and romance

I have been pleasantly surprised that each child's story has been different. I was expecting similarities but no, that is not the case. I truly enjoyed this story.

Pleasant surprise

I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It is your typical Julia Quinn book in the Bridgerton series, but surprsingly, it was not a "tired" story. After reading Eloise's story I thought Julia Quinn felt tired of the series so I did not expect much from this one, the 7th in the series. It was a nice surprise.
As always, narration was very good.

Loved this!

Not sure how she does it, but somehow I love each book in this series more than the next! This was my favorite so far in the series!
Enjoy!
