Just lovely! After fifteen years of crazy but unrelenting search finally Hyacinth did it! Isabella – as she is just like her mother – instinctively knew what Hyacinth needed: she wanted to be the one who (view spoiler) And I hope Isabella will never tell her the truth...

Though the story is mainly about Hyacinth’s search, you also get a peek into Hyacinth and Gareth’s wonderfully happy marriage.
“Because I know you,” she said, feeling a smile growing inside.

Γλυκό, χαριτωμένο, τρυφερό, όπως ακριβώς και το... "πρώτο" τέλος της ιστορίας ενός ζευγαριού που δεν γίνεται να μην αγαπήσεις.

Wish I had known all the epilogues were bound into a volume of short stories before repurchasing this one.
Glad to have the 2nd epilogue because the first was a bit of a rip off.

I have never disliked one of Quinn’s non-villain characters until Isabella St. Claire. I guess I didn’t hate her, but I did find her frustrating! This whole Epilogue was annoying – the only exception is the tender and sweet interactions between Gareth & Hyacinth. There was just no good reason why Isabella would keep the diamonds from her parents. Maybe when she was little, but once she was old enough to move out of the nursery it just seemed like she should’ve known better…and then to re-hid ...more

After I read all the Bridgerton books on my shelf (I need to get ahold of the ones I'm missing), I downloaded the "Second Epilogue" e-books, which take place any time from a few days after the book to years and years.

It was delightful to see these well-loved characters again, and to tie up some of the loose ends. I thought at least one of the endings was a little too pat, but these are really designed to be an indulgence for both the reader and the author, so I can't complain too much.

Este epílogo era necesario, no nos podíamos quedar con la incógnita y pese a ser un relato corto me mantuvo en vilo hasta el final.

Perfection. IMHO!

The quest to find the missing jewels from It's in His Kiss continued in this novella, and well, it was exciting and hilarious. Hyacinth proved to be a determined and resilient woman who never gave up on her purpose and her search for the jewels after 16 years :)) And her chemistry with Gareth, wow, it was still there, stronger than ever <3 So happy for them!!! :D And Isabella, their daughter, was becoming to be another Hyacinth version ha ha ha ^^ It was fun to read this epilogue :D

Hyacinth has been looking for a treasure for 20 years. Turns out her daughter has bad it for 15 years or so. But, Hyacinth didn't give up and her tenacity eventually paid off with a little maneuvering by her daughter.

The Bridgertons series marathon day XII, 14 down, mission accomplished!

What a great series!!! 14 books with wonderful stories, all kind of romances, unforgettable characters, and great times of laughing (also a little bit of crying).

14 books and I wished there were more books in this series. It was a rare thing I found a romance series which was so rich because it was much more than just romance or passion. It was the love in the family, and the Bridgertons had it all. Each book in the series n

¡Awwww, qué bonito!
Hyacinth y Gareth ya no son aquella joven pareja del inicio y al mismo tiempo lo son: 22 años han pasado desde su matrimonio, St. Clair trabajó mucho para recuperar la fortuna familiar y Hyacinth tuvo la bendición (o maldición) de tener a Isabella como hija, cumpliendo los deseos de Violet, que tuviera una hija "justo como ella". Sin embargo, después de 15 años, Hyacinth tiene una particular obsesión, la búsqueda de los diamantes de la abuela St. Clair, así que ahora, después

In previous book, Hyacinth and Gareth metaphorically reached the brick wall because they yet to find the jewels no matter how vigorously and anxiously the stubborn Hyacinth who searching for it.

Even after they inherited they house. Even after for years, and years.

Gareth had given up completely but Hyacinth will never, yes she's crazy I know, and it had became her favourite sport; jewels hunting.

But she didn't know the jewels had linked to her daughter who is just like her mother.

THANK YOU. As I said in my review in It's in His Kiss, I absolutely HATED... no... AB-FREAKING-HORRED D D D D (added for emphasis) THE ENDING. I really believe Hyacinth deserved to find those diamonds, and really. Diamonds are not to be kept!

So thank you for letting her find it in the end. That was a glorious moment for her. Aaaaaand, it made me feel a little bit better about Isabella. Aaaaaaaand Gareth (yes, no, more) seemed stupified. The moment made me laugh. Kudos!

I read this immediately after I read the whole novel. And after those years Hyacinth keep searching the jewelry when Gareth even deciding to give up. Well, it's almost heartbreaking to see how great Hyacinth hope to find the jewelry. And then her daughter is really love Hyacinth so that she seems willing to do anything for her Mommy. And I really wanna cry to see that family in such of perfect form.

Cute, sexy, funny. So far the best of the epilogues! Refreshing to see the love that these two still have after 20 years and of course the passion! And wow that was some passion!

Plus the bits about thier daughter and the diamonds helped to make this a really great, cute story and perfect ending for Hyacinth and Gareth.
Oh, I do love the Bridgerton Family! Each story is a wonderful romance with plenty of drama. A nice touch of steam to keep things naughty! Love this whole series and the epilogues!! And that Lady Whistledown is a hoot!! Such wonderfully engaging characters! Makes me wish I could be transported to that era!

It was a great read but after To Sir Phillip I'm not very excited with the last two novels. I know I felt the same with Eloise's story but I'm just not in the mood for multiple love interest right now. Francesca is a widow from a love match and the next romance is with the late husband's cousin. Gregory is in love with another girl too. Nope better quit(temporarily) while i'm ahead.

Oh, dear, this was delightful. I loved that Hyacinth is still the Hyacinth we've all grown to love in It's In His Kiss, loved that Gareth is still himself. I'm glad that this story has come full circle; it was great seeing their daughter!

Julia Quinn took such an important part of the original story and wove it perfectly into this epilogue. It was positively delightful!

Hyacinth's story was absolutely my favourite from the Bridgerton's and this extra little bit was amazing.

I really hop e that we get to see more of the Bridgerton offspring in future books!

Again, a most satisfying addition to it's main story... And I was so happy to see that Hyacinth was, indeed, blessed with a daughter that was like herself! And it was delightful that her daughter not only solved the mystery, but made it known in a way that was truly splendid.

And, of course, I love knowing that Hyacinth and Gareth are as passionate as ever, 22 years+ after their wedding.

Finally the mystery of the jewels is solved! A nice conclusion to Hyacinth's search that begun before her wedding.

It's also kind of funny that she has a daughter "just like her". That certainly is something told by every mother to her children at one time or another...

Of course Hyancinth would find it! Ha! But I suddenly got curious of Isabella. I wonder if she ever used the jewels without Hyacinth knowing. Or will she ever use it? Ugh. I suddenly want to know her story. :))
