Julia Quinn's "An Offer From a Gentleman" - #3 in the Bridgertons series

An Offer From a Gentleman - Julia Quinn

Love this one - a beautifully written, intensely emotional story. Best version of the Cinderella story I've ever read.

After just re-reading it, I'm struck how much more story, emotion and character development are in this book, published in 2001, than in the one I read prior to this (Just Like Heaven, published in 2011) - An Offer From A Gentleman is far superior. Both books unquestionably have the unique style and humour of Julia Quinn, but otherwise it's almost like two different authors worked on these 2 books.
