The Bridgertons are a close knit family of nine, widower Violet and her eight children all famously named in alphabetical order. Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth. This final book is about Gregory, although not the youngest, he is the last unwed Bridgerton. Hyacinth's story was in Its In His Kiss (book seven).

Gregory believes in true love, well why shouldn't he? All of his siblings have found it and he is determined to find his one true love as well. So, when he sees the beautiful Hermione for the first time, he knows she's 'the one'. But Hermoine doesn't seem to notice Gregory at all. Enter Lucinda, Hermoine's less handsome and often overshadowed best friend. Lucy, the ever-practical 'helps everybody' friend, takes it upon herself to help Gregory try and win Hermoine's affections and thus prevent a disasterous marriage Hermoine was contemplating.

Lucy has been betrothed to Lord Haselby since she was a girl, but in the process of helping Gregory, she unintentionally falls in love with him. It isn't until later that Gregory comes to his senses and figures out it's really Lucy he loves, but is it too late? The wedding scene is fantastic, but I can't tell you anymore without major spoilers.

On The Way To The Wedding is a true delight from the start -prologue (mega cliffhanger!) till you read the epilogue (a sweet and fitting surprise ending).

Recommended.
