Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of London

When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancé, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something.

Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . . .

Here as a ring, a nice little tale which kept me entertained part of my train journey to Paris. Hadn't read a Quinn in a long time - fun and clever dialogue. Color-blind hero, rare and interesting detail. I'll get the next address and try to send from here.

Oh, a Julia Quinn is always entertaining! I greatly enjoyed all her previous novels, especially the Bridgerton ones. What's so captivating about Quinn are her well-developed characters, the light banter in her dialogues, and the overall lighthearted atmosphere. Interestingly, many of her novels are kind of plot-less, which I don't notice until the moment that I have to re-tell the story. What actually DID happen in What Happens in London? LOL. Nothing much, other than two characters falling in love between two windows. I thought this last part, this kidnapping part, was a bit un-Quinnish, but well, in the end, nothing much DID happen, after all ... Still, great fun.

PMed the next participant and will try to move this book on ASAP.

This was a very enjoyable book. I've never read a Julia Quinn book before and this one made me want to read more. The story is quite funny and there were parts which I couldn't stop laughing.

I'll send the book out on Monday.
