Book Description

April 6 2004
Who Stole Lady Neeley’s Bracelet?

Was it the fortune hunter, the gambler, the servant, or the rogue? All of London is abuzz with speculation, but it is clear that one of four couples is connected to the crime.

Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, May 1816

Julia Quinn enchants: A dashing fortune hunter is captivated by the Season's most desired debutante...and must prove he is out to steal the lady's heart, not her dowry.

Suzanne Enoch tantalizes: An innocent miss who has spent her life scrupulously avoiding scandal is suddenly -- and secretly -- courted by London's most notorious rogue.

Karen Hawkins seduces: A roving viscount comes home to rekindle the passionate fires of his marriage...only to discover that his beautiful, headstrong bride will not be so easily won.

Mia Ryan delights: A lovely, free-spirited servant is dazzled by the romantic attentions of a charming earl...sparking a scandalous affair that could ruin them both.

You'll hear it first from Lady Whistledown

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A strong and charming encore to The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown, this superb Regency-era novella collection is punctuated by gossip columnist Lady Whistledown's witty comments and penned by the same authors who contributed to the previous book. A disastrous dinner party during which a ruby bracelet goes missing-and four couples discover or rediscover their soul mates-sparks the collection. Each tale follows one pair as they tackle the obstacles to love, but the stories are skillfully interwoven to the point where they present the same encounters and relay the same dialogue from different points of view. At times, references to the other couples can feel forced, but the authors are largely successful in piecing their hilarious and sometimes touching stories together into a delightful romantic quilt. Similarities abound: the heroines are unwed virgins, the heroes unwed but not virginal, and all are filled with gratitude that they found each other. Only Hawkins's story, featuring a wedded couple estranged for 12 years, stands strangely apart, as it explores the darker issues of pride, betrayal and forgiveness. Sure to be as popular-if not more so-than the previous Whistledown, this winsome collection is a cut above most romance anthologies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read. July 14 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed these stories especially when they would all meet up at spots as the stories all take place at the same time. It was neat to see how each author incorporated their characters to match what's already been said from another author. I will have to check out Mia Ryan's other books as she's a new to me author!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sappy Sappy Sappy July 18 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Of course that is why we read romance books... sappy is a good thing... But I only gave it 3 stars, because I only liked 2 stories.
Suzanne Enoch and Karen Hawkins were the best of the 4 stories. I usually Love Quinn, but feel the same way as the other reviewer felt...she has been writing different lately. I lost interest in her books, after the story about To Sir Philip, With Love. All her other books were soooooooooooooooooo 5 star good. She needs to rest and recharge her heart. I did enjoy the Lady Whistledown's comments..they are always enjoyable and fun to read...He bought a brown hat ...to match his brown suit yadda yadda yadda...too funny..Mya Ryan is not known to me..but the story was OK enough to look into her other work.
Not a keeper but worth reading. Wish you could read mine, would be free...anyone in SA Texas, I will happily let them read mine .

1.0 out of 5 stars Only good story was Enoch's July 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not good. What has happened to Julia? Sir Phillip was not good. She has changed her writing style. Throw in some sex like so many of the poor authors, dime a dozen, just doesn't make a worthwhile read. I like emotion, depth, relationship. Julia used to write that. The better authors can and do. I give Suzanne Enoch a 4 star though. There was story, tension in her novella. But otherwise a waste of money and time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mia Ryan July 6 2004
By G. Mayo
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Actually, I was rather surprised about this anthology in that I did not really care for Ms. Quinn's story with the rather common plot. I am a die-hard fan of hers but this story was a let-down because this plot has been done so many times. Karen Hawkins's story is boring also because it's plot has no ingenuity (I have purchased a book of hers and found it not worth the money). However, a big surprise was Suzanne Enoch's sweet story about two mismatched lovers and their determination to be together. Moreover, I positively adored Mia Ryans's character Bella, even though most people seem to dislike her. I appreciate her because she laughs at herself and at her overactive imagination, which is something I myself do all the time. I enjoyed her lightheartedness and giggly nature because it made sure the story had none of the dramatic overtones prevalent in most romance stories. I liked the relaxed atmosphere and Roxbury's fascination with Bella. So, in the spirit of disagreement, I heartedly applaud Mia Ryan's short story and eagerly await her next work.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 out of 4 enjoyable stories June 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the 3 stories by Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch and Karen Hawkins very much. As in the last Whistledown collection, Suzanne Enoch's was my favorite. After reading other Amazon reviews, I decided not to even attemp to read Mia Ryan's story, so I can't judge it one way or the other. But the other 3 stories were all very strong and enjoyable reads. I definitely recommend them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who the hell wrote the Whistledown columns????? June 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe Lady Whistledown really wrote all those mean comments. For heavens sake! I don't think it's in the character's nature (I know who Whistledown is). She actually accused people without knowing all the facts. The only saving grace for this book is that I liked some of the stories. And does Miss Martin really have to keep on giggling? (not laughing, I can understand laughter but giggling throughout the story? No. I positively don't get what's so funny)

2.0 out of 5 stars Read the previous one. June 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This collection was not as exciting nor interesting as the first one of the series.
This one is a waste of your time and money. The first one was fresh and held your attention. This second one, the stories dwindle and even drags on, until you just want to toss it out.
All of the authors have lovely novels outside of this series, but this collection was horrible in comparison to the first one.
Don't try to best an original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! June 15 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have waited (very impatiently) for this new edition of the Lady Whistledown series. I enjoyed the first and was not disappointed by the second. Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch and Karen Hawkins deliver in a big way. Their stories were fun, romantic and wonderfully woven together. And please, if you don't get the tingles over this exchange...
"I admit I have felt the effect of your mouth, my lord," she said in a low voice.
This looking and not touching was going to kill him. "You haven't begun to feel the effect of my mouth, Charlotte, " he murmured.
(page 228)
WOW! Be still my beating heart!
The only low point in this fabulous collection was the story by Mia Ryan. I was very disappointed by the silly, downright obnoxious character of Miss Martin. What happened to Mia Ryan? I really enjoyed the story she wrote in the original Lady Whistledown compilation, but since, her work has seemed forced and painful. Very sad.
In all, you must read this book for the wonderful stories from Quinn, Enoch and Hawkins. This book is going on my keeper shelf!
