Book Review: The Lady Most Likely...

Title: The Lady Most Likely...
Author: Julia Quinn, Eloisa James & Connie Brockway
Genre: Historical Romance
Rating: 3/5

Three of the brightest stars of historical romance invite you to a party at the country home of the Honorable Marquess of Finchley

Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them— and a few other gentlemen—to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season.

Hugh will have time to woo whichever lady he most desires . . . Unless someone else snatches her first.

The invitation list includes:

The horse-mad but irresistibly handsome Earl of Briarly
The always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton
The dashing war hero Captain Neill Oakes
The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gwendolyn Passmore
The terribly eligible new Earl of Charters
The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever)

And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker who plans to find the lady most likely... to capture her brother’s untamed heart.

And again, I picked up this book as a friend gave it to me. I actually got 5 historical romance novel from her, and I was planning to make this a historical romance week :)

The Lady Most Likely... is a novel in three parts written by three different authors, who continue the stories. The first part was written by Julia Quinn. The second part was Connie Brockway and the third was Eloisa James.

The first part was my favorite. I love Julia Quinn style the most in this book. It was a sweet romance with a bit humor. And it was a bit sexy. There were some minor romance between Lady Carolyn Finchley and her husband. I like that. The second part had a cute story line but, it get confusing at some part where the author changed the point of view. And the third part was bland. 

The thing about three different author is that, some of the character, like Hugh, changed. He had different personality in the first part, and he changed in the second and third part. But, I guess, that's understandable as the three author had different style.


  1. Inconsistent personality? Really can't be helped with 3 different authors. But it's still an interesting concept to have 3 authors writing the story. Definitely like Julia Quinn's writing style!

    1. The book had an interesting concept indeed. It's my first time reading Julia Quinn's work. I like it :)
