I've read the Bridgerton series a few times before, when Amazon offered each e book with 2nd epilogue for just $1.99, I bought all of them because I had hardcovers from when they were first released . I was disappointed that the 2nd epilogue was only included with the first 2 books. I bought them anyway, thinking that was the extent of what was written, as I hasn't kept up with Julia Quinn for several years. I just now have had time to read the e books, though I've had them a year or so. As I get to the end of each new book, I am hit with a "buy the next book with 2nd epilogue" the page after the ending. It irritates me, as both Amazon & Julia Quinn advertised as though that was what I was getting when I bought them in the first place. As I said, when only the first 2 contained the 2nd epilogue, I assumed that's all there was. Very disappointing, & this book is especially good, I'd forgotten how good. Which is why, in this review, I'm mentioning the deceptive advertising. Because I'd really love to read the second epilogue for this book. Seeing as how the 2nd epilogue in the first 2 were only a chapter or two, it's really ridiculous to consider buying yet another copy, when I already own 2, just for a couple chapters, especially at the current price.
I truly love the wit & humor in these books. My daughter always is amazed at how much I laugh while reading, since she doesn't have a passion for reading. Not each Bridgerton book is the same, & in my opinion, Eloise's story wasn't as good as the others. To be honest, I didn't remember how much I loved this one. I'm looking forward to the last one, since I don't remember it well, as it's been years since I've read it. I'm almost hoping I don't like it, since the 2nd epilogue is going to not be there.
Well worth the price with the second epilogue, if you hadn't just bought it with in the last year or so.
