She was in the wrong place...

Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers' hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to disma

I should rate this book a 4 or 5 because the writing is so good. Julia Quinn writes great dialogue that is smart and funny every time. And, the book was enjoyable enough that I didn't want to put it down.


I just couldn't get over the fact that he kidnapped her in the first place. He really didn't have to, even though he continually acts like he was forced to do it.
He's a spy, and can't let her go when she discovers his secret "pirate cove" because she might blab about it.

But, mistakes were

I accidentally read this one out of sequence which irritates my OCD side a little but I guess does not really matter in the long run. It was a lot of fun, a bit silly in parts , but overall a very enjoyable and entertaining read.

I liked both main characters and loved the verbal sparring between them. It was the situations they found themselves in that were a little over the top but this is supposed to be light hearted, not a piece of serious literary fiction, so who cares! I loved the ending and

The Other Miss Bridgerton is the third instalment in Julia Quinn’s series of novels featuring members of the previous generation of Bridgertons and their neighbours and long-standing family friends the Rokesbys.  In the first book, Because of Miss Bridgerton, Sybilla (Billie) Bridgerton married George Rokseby; in the second, the story focused on the next Rokesby brother, Edward, an officer serving in North America. Andrew is the third br

I pick up each new Julia Quinn expecting to feel the magic that I did when I first read her books more than a decade ago. Instead, she has become increasingly formulaic to the point where I can predict "this is where the first kiss happens" and "this is where they fool around" and "oops, I have X pages left, so they must have sex about ... yup here we are" and "we're at an epilogue, which means BABIES. NOTHING BUT BABIES."

I feel like my tastes are moving on from Quinn. I can still recall in grea

This is a sad, sad day. I am giving up on a book written by one of my all-time favorite authors. I'm sorry, but I just can't. I spent almost two months on this, and every time I picked it up again, I ended up seething and quickly put it away after a page or so.

So this book opens with a Bridgerton girl aimlessly traipsing around the countryside, only to stumble across a cave used by smugglers. Who promptly kidnap her because no-one EVER has managed to discover this oh-so-secret-

This series by Julia Quinn has been my favorite from her. The books have been absolutely stealing my heart. There wasn't any doubt in my mind that I would be picking up The Other Miss Bridgerton. Like with the previous books, this was a feel-good story with a lovely couple.

Poppy Bridgerton was undeniably the star of this book. She was sweet and charming and so kind. While visiting a friend in Dorset, she stumbles upon a cave where she discovers pirates smuggling some goods. She finds herself kid

As I continue to say this is good but not as good as Bridgerton's series.

Both Poppy and Andrew are good characters, maybe Poppy a little bit more! LOL

I liked how she reacted to her abduction and how she made Andrew mad!

Nice and easy story with predictable outcome!

After loving the first in this series, then feeling rather meh about the second, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the third. But the blurb - high seas! Pirate-y adventure! Bridgerton heroine! - I was pretty excited to give it a try. I'm so glad I did.

JQ is back in full Bridgerton glory. Her trademark witty banter and complex characters seem fresh - a new set of characters within the same family we've all loved for years. I loved how Poppy and Andrew actually communicated; the turn in roma

Archetypical JQ book - sweet and funny and not terribly angsty. It was just a matter of time before the inquisitive and indomitable Poppy Bridgerton's curiosity got her into trouble. While exploring caves near her friend's home after expertly ditching her assigned maid/chaperone, she finds far more than she intended and consequently gets napped by pirate smugglers keen to protect their secrets. Only these pirates are unlike any other pirates she has read about. They neither rape nor plunder, the ...more

I read this book in one sitting. ONE SITTING.

I had nearly forgotten how much I ADORE JQ’s books. And after a woeful string of mostly terrible historical romances, coming back to the Bridgertons was a DELIGHT! It’s easy, breezy, romantic, funny, and mostly angst free.

I can’t believe I’m about to type this, because I’ve loved Julia Quinn’s books for years, but… I found this one boring. I’m not the biggest fan of romantic pirates at the best of times, but since Andrew isn’t even close to being a pirate (or a privateer really, since he’s more of a merchant-smuggler) I thought I’d risk it anyway. Which would have been fine, except that over half the book takes place in a single cabin on board a ship at sea – and nothing happens!

I had high hopes for something occ
How sweet and adventurous!

As always with Julia Quinn's books, I loved the couples' banter. I appreciated how the male mc wasn't some brutish non communicative douche, but rather very engaging and personable and clever. There were also no blurred lines in terms of consent and I genuinely felt that the couple was good together, bringing out the best in one another. Their conversations started out a little stiff/ pedantic for me but they improved massively and you could tell the author got into the

4.5 stars

I had read and enjoyed the previous book in this series and loved this synopsis, so I was pretty eager to start it.

I absolutely adored Poppy and Andrew. She’s sassy and curious and is outspoken. He’s just as sassy and charming and and wants people to think he’s a bit of a scoundrel, but is quite a marshmallow. Together they have delicious banter and button pushing and fantastic conversation.

Plot wise, it was good. Of course, there’s only so much that can happen in one room of a ship,
Lovely story totally focused on the MC’s relationship

What I loved the most about this book is that they are stranded in a ship and therefore the whole book is about them and their relationship and how they get to know and love each other.
I usually don’t like pirate plots, but this was a lovely read.

Oh Poppy! I absolutely adored her! She was witty and smart and gave Andrew a run for his money. I loved watching them fall in love despite the circumstances that they met in. I don't want to say too much because I want you all to read this...and you know you can't go wrong with Julia Quinn :)

Easy reading, nothing to earth shattering but despite the kidnap theme nothing too objectionable either.

Vacationing in a small seaside town, the adventurous Miss Poppy Bridgerton is minding her own business exploring a cave when she finds herself kidnapped and tied to a bed on a pirate ship. Captain Andrew James Rokesby has no time for beautiful yet willful women when he has important documents to deliver for the British government. Thrown together on the voyage, Poppy and Andrew soon find that their snarky banter conceals an intense attraction, but will she be so a

While visiting a friend, Poppy Bridgerton convince her chaperone to wait for her at a tea shop while she goes explore the surrounding area. But when she discover an hiding cave, she end up kidnapped and on her way to Portugal.

Andrew James is the Captain of the Infinity. But what his crew, and his captive ignore, is that he's not just a privateer. He's the son of an earl who works for the Crown. And he just happen to be the neighbor of Poppy's cousins. The young lady can't say she's not relieved
Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede
The Other Miss Bridgerton started off great with Poppy being abducted by two pirates and taken to Captain Andrew Rokesby ship and there held captive. The rational part of me does think this whole kidnapping thing is crazy. And, yes Andrew is now a real pirate, and he's a gentleman. Still, it's still kidnapping. Then again, I do read more crime and thriller novels than romance, so kidnapping for me is seldom a good thing when it comes to books.

Anyway, this story worked well at first for me, ther

The Other Miss Brigerton was a funny, easy and predictable listen for me. I enjoyed Poppy and Andrew were delightful characters. I loved the banter between the to individuals. Although there could have been more heat, it did not stop me from liking the story. Ms. Landor as usual provides a very nice narration of the story and the voices of the characters.

Ok, this was a long time coming but this book was really the last straw. Julia, if you ever read this I'm sorry but it needs to be said; enough with the f****** Bridgertons! Enough!!
We get it; they all have the same coloring, all the boys are charming and all the girls are oh-so-unconventional and the ton loves them, your publisher clearly loves them even though it is starting to feel like milking a dead cow, and now apparently Netflix loves it too (congratulations are in order on that account)

As a huge Julia Quinn fan, I cannot wait for the book to be published! To be honest though, I really hope that the description will somehow change and the heroine of the book is Georgiana. From the first book of the series, I had a feeling that Andrew and Georgiana would end up together..

Poppy Bridgerton is dragging her heels on the marriage mart. She isn’t about to settle for just any man who asks her – only someone who can match her quick wit and will treat her as an equal could catch her interest and none of her suitors have even elicited the slightest glimmer of attraction from her. Taking a break from London, she goes to the Dorset to visit a friend. While exploring the coast, Poppy discovers a smugglers cave…which would be delightful if there weren’t smugglers in it when s ...more

I just loved this story. After what I felt like was a fail for Julia Quinn's previous book in the Rokesby series, she has come back with a truly delightful historical that hit all the right notes for me. I loved the hero and heroine in this story. Poppy is intelligent and adventurous, the perfect heroine to find herself kidnapped and stowed away on a privateer's ship, heading for foreign lands. Andrew is also intelligent and valiant and a gentleman, the perfect hero to treat a prisoner on his sh ...more
This was fun! I enjoyed Poppy and Andrew a lot, and generally found myself more into this one than any of the previous books in the series. The ending was a little underwhelming/didn’t work as well as the rest of the book, but otherwise, this was an enjoyable read.
