    " Listened to Just like heaven by Julia Quinn. Honoria Smythe-Smith, the youngest daughter of the eldest son of the Earl of Winstead, plays the violin in the annual musicale performed by the Smythe-Smith quartet. She's well aware that they are dreadful but she's the sort who figures that nothing good will come of being mortified, so she puts on a good show and laughs about it. Marcus Holroyd is the best friend of Honoria's brother Daniel, who lives in exile. Marcus has promised to watch out for Honoria, but he faces a challenge when she sets off for Cambridge determined to marry by the end of the season. She's got her eye on the only unmarried Bridgerton, who's a bit wet behind the ears. When her advances are spurned, can Marcus swoop in and steal her heart in time for the musicale? I have so enjoyed this book and look for the rest of this series. I give this book 4 stars and a 8. An enjoyable read. "

    " Love this book so much. I bought this one after saw JQ fb last year. Its so great that I didnt know how to express myself. The books so much fun with its own hero and heroine the not so perfect characters. Who would guess that JQ will choose Smythe-Smith girls as their main character? With their so ear piercing orchestra and so on... Its really remarkable especially every books of JQ on historical romances always mentioning of Smythe-Smith quartets with its horrible sounds and choose Honoria as the first heroine instead of the one girl that always miserable during the quartet. And I believe JQ next heroine on this series will be that girl, but really cant wait for Daniel story this May. Simple words always make a simply great impression. "

    " Very frothy and amusing, with likeable hero and heroine- pure comfort reading. I just wish the author would make some effort to avoid anachronisms and Americanisms. "

    " 3.5 stars. The ending was rushed. I felt lost. The beginning was superb though. Wonderfully written!! I wish the romance would have been more drawn out..:( "

    " It took awhile to come together, but a good solid read. Had some precious lines on it. It is a story about families and their value as seen thru the two main characters eyes. Why you do the things you do for family. I can't say more without giving something away. Read it and enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/26/2012

    " I enjoyed the fever scene the most, but I think there were several opportunities for more drama. One of my favorite things about Quinn novels is how intertwined her characters from her series become and how the minor characters in previous books become major characters later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 7/27/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading this and couldn't put it down. Gave it 4 stars as i thought the ending felt rushed, things happened so fast -you didn't really get a chance to enjoy the ending. "

    " If you are a fan of Julia Quinn you have most likely heard of the Smythe-Smiths. This was a really cute and fun read. I loved how Honoria accepts how terrible a musician she is but still keeps at it for the sake of family tradition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 6/2/2011

    " I loved both the characters, Honoria and Marcus. Lively, funny banter and good fast pacing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 6/2/2011

    " Julia Quinn was the first Romance author I've ever read and she remains my favorite. Just Like Heaven, while not among my favorites of hers, is still a hilarious and fun story. I really think that JQ couldn't write a bad book if she tried. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 6/1/2011
