Review originally posted at http://bookstobrightenyourmood.blogsp...

An Offer from a Gentleman,although certainly not among my favorite in the popular Bridgertons series by Julia Quinn,was a pleasant read from the first to the last page!

The whole Cinderella retale this book deals with,at first made me feel a bit apprehensive,but thankfully my apprehensions were quickly gone.I'm not a huge fan of retales,since whatever I've tried reading with retales of stories wasn't that much impressive for me... But fortunatelly,this book has only a feeling of a retale of the Cinderella story,and soon after the first chapters,although the feeling of reading Cinderella remains,the whole story carries you away...

What I liked most in this story is Sophie's character.I liked the way Julia Quinn developed her as a character and how she was portrayed.I liked how she was strong,with high morals and no matter what life brought her way,she accepted it and dealt with it in the most dignified manner.
What I liked least,and I can't believe I'm actually saying that about a member of a Bridgerton family,was Benedict.He was a bit of a "lukewarm" character for me,and although there were times I found him irresistible,most of the times he went a bit unnoticed for me,even though he was the main hero.

As for the rest,Julia Quinn once again writes exceptionally and her story manages to grab her readers interest making it really difficult to put any of her books down!I like her sense of humor that is evident in every book of hers I've read up to now and I love the way the romance evolves in her stories.
So,although this book may not be one of my favorites,it still is a very good book,and one that you read it quite pleasantly!
