Firstly let me say that if you read the reviews you could become confused. There is a mixture of reviews for 2 different books - this one and Everything and the Moon. The main characters in this book are Alex and Emma and only reviews mentioning their names are correct. Then added to that there is no Amazon summary of this story. This tale involves a Duke, Alex as the H and the h is Emma, an American heiress. Emma has been helping her dad with his shipping business for years and hopes to take it over from him one day but her father has other ideas and sends her to her aunt in England for a season. She meets the H in an unconventional way when she is dressed as a maid and is concussed after saving the H's nephew's life. Neither of the main characters want to get married and it's a bit of an annoying theme. I believe this is one of the author's earlier books so it lacks her later finesse e.g. the misunderstandings and bickering detracted from the romance. I doubt I'll remember this book in the future.

FINAL DECISION: A book that feels more formulaic than a normal Julia Quinn novel, SPLENDID has some madcap moments but after a while the number of dramas that had to be negotiated wore on the story.

THE STORY: Emma Dunster is an American heiress who intends on enjoying her season in London with no plans for marriage because she wants to return to America, marry and run her father's business. Masquerading as a kitchen maid, she goes out on an errand and ends up saving the nephew of Alexander Ridgely, Duke of Ashbourne, a notorious rake. Furious when he finds out her deception, Emma and Alexander begin a dance where neither wants marriage but yet they cannot stay away from one another.

OPINION: This book begins well. The twist of having Alexander believe that Emma is a kitchen maid and then discovering that she is actually an heiress is funny and brings the characters immediately together in an intimate fashion. Emma shows herself to be independent and determined as she wants to use her business sense. Alexander is a bit of a jerk about the whole thing. The two cannot seem to stop being attracted to one another despite each believing that they want something else.

This book just has too many dramatic moments and twists and turns to drive the story forward instead of fostering connection between the characters. For me that means that while I like the book, I found it somewhat forgettable. It's one of those books that I read, enjoyed but won't think to pick up again.

The good news is that Quinn has gone on to write some amazing books.

WORTH MENTIONING: This was Julia Quinn's first book and at times it shows.

CONNECTED BOOKS: SPLENDID is the first book in the Splendid or Blydon Trilogy.

STAR RATING: I give this book 3 stars.

I won't give a summary of Splendid since you can get a better summarization from the author.

Entertaining from beginning to end. It's also funny, delightful, and lovable!
You'll fall in love with the characters in this Splendid story.

This is my 2nd time rereading all of Julia Quinn's books. This, so far my favorite in her collection.

Okay, so this is a fluffy romance novel, pretty friendly, and the women are in charge of their own destinies. Yadda yadda. I really like the humor, and having read later Julia Quinn books - I can see where she is going. However, I have one thing to add to the numerous other reviews: what happened to the dog? The dog jumps out of the boy's arms and runs across the street, starting a series of very important events - but what happens to the dog? Is he okay? I know that perhaps at the time that this book took place people didn't have the close personal relationships with their pets that we have now, however, the dog is never again addressed, and let's face it: feminists like this wouldn't move through the world of the book as successfully as they do (I only mention the second part to point out that one might expect a modern person's need to understand the pet's fate...). I liked the book, and would read it again, but the dog thing is a subtle itch.

I very much liked this book. It was light & fun. I thought character development was a bit spotty to start, but then it really evened out. Alex was pretty predictable as a hero, Emma less so as a heroine, which I enjoyed. I also liked Emma's relatively shy attitude towards sex; it was refreshing when so many heroines are depicted as jumping into the sack without concern or consideration for anything but themselves.
The dialogue was dynamic; it's something Quinn excels at & this is no exception. The sense of family that she creates is quite real & not stilted. I like the relationships that she showed between Emma, Belle & Ned - just like siblings.
