How to Marry a Marquis very much fits that description it made me laugh and kept me turning the pages.~ Under the Covers

Miss Elizabeth Hotchkiss is trembling on the very edge of poverty, barely keeping food on the table for her siblings by working as a companion for Lady Danbury. Her only way out it seems is for her to marry only she has no skills in attracting a suitor and leading him to a proposal and the only guidance she seems to be able to find is from a very silly book. With nothing to lose Elizabeth starts practicing her wiles on Mr James Sidwell Lady D’s penniless estate manager, only things aren’t quite as they appear and she never expected to actually fall in love…

Julia Quinn books never fail me, they may not be life changing or sweep me off my feet, but they do always do two things, one, entertain me and two make me smile. How to Marry a Marquis very much fits that description it made me laugh and kept me turning the pages.

Elizabeth and James were both very likable characters and had a very cute romance, it didn’t take any unexpected turns and so although predictable it was sweet and charming. A character you may recognize if you have read enough of Julia Quinn’s books is Lady Danbury, I love Lady Danbury she is a sharp tongued yet sweet older lady who manages to keep everyone around her on their toes with her cutting wit.

A great book for some light reading, you may not remember much about it in a few weeks time but it will leave you with a cozy feeling and a smile on your face.

About Julia Quinn

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand fashion, appearing on the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code. Ms. Quinn is one of only sixteen members of Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame, her books have been translated into 29 languages, and she currently lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.

Her most popular series, The Bridgertons, is currently being developed by Shondaland as a Netflix series. Scandal veteran Chris Van Dusen will adapt and showrun.
