Just Like Heaven (Smythe-Smith Quartet)

Just Like Heaven (Smythe-Smith Quartet) - Julia Quinn "Just like heaven" is the beginning of the Smythe-Smith Quartet, a spin off of Julia Quinn's popular Bridgerton series. I adore Julia Quinn, who proves that historical romance doesn't have to be dull and humorless. This book though? Eh, it's ok. I never got a clear sense of who Honoria really was - her personality feels a bit blank. The romance itself it pretty predictable, and there is very little conflict/plot to speak of. It feels like a novella. It's enjoyable, but I honestly enjoyed the second Smythe-Smith book much more (which seems to be the opposite of most Goodreads reviewers!)
