I enjoyed the tale of Anne and Daniel. Did I think it a little unrealistic when he falls in love at first sight? Sure. But it's a nice little confection of a tale. Anne's back story is interesting, and the story doesn't throw so many roadblocks at them that I found it irritating. I do love Julia Quinn, and I'm happy that she has books about the Smithe-Smythe's, because their musicale was my favorite detail in the Bridgerton books!
