To Sir Philip with Love is another solid entry in the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn. Eloise is a 28 year old spinster. She has had other offers but was rich enough that she didn't have to marry for financial reasons.

Eloise's best friend (whom she assumed would never marry) marries her brother (the plot of Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, the 4th book in the series.) Eloise panics. She has been corresponding with a widow and on impulse goes to stay with him. He has offered marriage if upon meeting they suit.

Sir Philip is in the tragic hero vein. He is a widow with twin 8 year olds. He was physically abused by his father and has no mother. His first wife killed herself after spending their entire marriage clinically depressed. Philip is in a state of learned helplessness: nothing he does makes any difference so why try?

This book is pleasant, light, (aside from Philip's tragic past), and a quick read. The plot was a bit mediocre but I thought the moment where Philip and Eloise declare each other had a lot of emotional intensity.

If you are a fan of the other books in the series there is no reason you wouldn't like this one.
