The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After by Julia Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After is a great collection for Bridgerton/Julia Quinn fans. It contains the previously published “Second Epilogues” (short stories about past main characters) in one volume, and the new, much-anticipated, long-hoped-for-by-fans, novella featuring the series’ matriarch, Violet. In the Bridgerton series, Violet’s husband, Edmund, died young. There’s little mention of him, leading many fans to wonder what that relationship was like. Similar to the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey, there’s just something about Violet’s wisdom and wit that draws you in and makes you want more scenes with her. The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After grants that wish. Violet and Edmund’s story is very sweet and fits Violet’s personality, revealing more about her character. Beggars can’t be choosers, however, I honestly wish that the story was a full-length novel instead of a novella. But, now that it’s said and done, I guess fans can cross their fingers that Julia Quinn will continue the series with the next generation of Bridgerton children.
