Sweet and Funny

Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
Series: Smythe-Smith Quartet #1

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I always enjoy Julia Quinn’s writing, she's witty, romantic and sweet. Marcus was a lovely hero, he cared deeply for Honoria. Honoria, was a strong woman who would go above and beyond for her family and people she cares about. I really enjoyed all the Smythe-Smith girls. This was a sweet romance with some fun secondary characters. Lady Danbury is always a favourite!

This was a re-read for me, though I chose the audio version this time and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first. Rosalyn Landor is wonderful!

One of the first Julia Quinn books i read

This is a great romantic book. There is not much drama in it, but a nice simple storyline about the two characters falling in love. It's fun and sweet, and worth your time, money or Credit

Hated that it was over

I likes the story from the beginning. How can you not love Julia Quinn. The narrator brought the characters to life for me.

Cute

The main characters are cute together , I loved their playfulness. I wished there had been more of that between Marcus and Honoria (sp) before the main "conflict". It wasn't a great story line but the musical plot was different and again, cute. The narrator did a great job with the female voices, but her Marcus voice wasn't great.

Obligations

What happens when your best friend asks you to look after his little sister "Bug"? You suddenly realize that the "little pest" Bug is now grown up and is as lovely as can be. What's a fellow to do but fall in love. Julia Quinn knocks another one out of the park.

Really Sweet Story

Any additional comments?

Such a sweet and entertaining book. Marcus is a great hero - not a bad bone in his body. "Bug" (her real name is Honoria) is a great heroine. She is so normal and down to earth. They deserve to be happy. The story line includes an annual musicale where the performers, all from the same family, are all horrible but their proud relatives don't seem to notice. This has been going on for 18 years and now Bug is one of the performers on her violin, and she is just as bad as all the others. Marcus, who has sworn to Bug's brother that he will look after her endures the performances. He does not have a family of her own and Bug's family has been his surrogate family since he was a young boy at school. There is not a great deal of action, but the story is entertaining and the dialog is good. I truly enjoyed listening to this book. The reader is very good - excellent expression and she does not get in the way of the story.
