    1. I keep reading Julia Quinn's books hoping to find the lovely, sweet magic that made the Bridgertons series great and has been gone (to only the gods know where) since then. Sadly, The Lady Most Likely: A Novel in Three Parts was a huge disappointment in that regard Ms. Quinn is still true to her fluffy writing style - which can be fun as she's already proven before - but I couldn't find myself caring for her H/h, Alec and Gwendolyn, in her contribution to this uneven anthology. They were blah, h [...]

    2. I'm not a review writer. I read a book, enjoy it or not, and keep my opinion to myself, and yet I peruse for reviews myself. Hypocrisy, yay! However, I recently read this book and so enjoyed it that I feel I should be encouraging y'all to read it too :PThe other two stories in the book was good, but oh man, Julia QuinnI could not stop laughing at 2 specific pages in her story for 10 minutes. My sister thought I was crazy, but maybe I'm just overly fond of bunnies (yes, the mention of bunnies is [...]

    3. I loved this book!First off, let's be clear -- this is NOT an anthology! It's a single story that was written as a collaboration between three incredible regency romance authors -- Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway. When horse-crazy Hugh Dunne, Earl of Briarly, is gravely injured while training his new prize stallion, he realizes that it's time to find a wife and set up his nursery. So he does what any man would would much rather spend his time in the stables than darken the door of [...]

    4. I'm not a fan of short stories because I always feel like more should've been said/done. They feel short. I wanted to try this one because it's three authors writing one story but taking up different parts of it and for the most part they did a good job of giving it a good flow. All three stories showcase a particular character at a party hosted by the Earl of Briarly's sister who's determined to find him a wife. The novel blends well in terms of story telling, but the three authors are distinct [...]

    5. First off, why do people/reviewers of romance novels keep saying things like, "I totally knew who the hero/heorine was going to end up with, this was so predictable/I'm so amazing!" It's a romance novel - of course it's predictable. We don't read them so that we can spend the novel guessing who the heroine is going to end up with - we know who she's going to end up with. It's not the *if* they will get together, we read for, it's the *how* they will get together. If you don't figure out who the [...]

    6. I liked the "3 authors/1 story" technique used here. All three authors have their own signature style when writing historical romances, and I was curious to see if they would "blend" together well. They did!The entire story takes place at a house party hosted by Lady Carolyn Finchley, whose sole purpose for having the party is to find her brother Hugh, the Earl of Briarly, a wife. After a close brush with death that left him in a coma for a week, Hugh realizes it is time to produce the "heir &am [...]

    7. I found this particular book to be a real gem. I was expecting a typical anthology, but this was definitely a fun and unique style. The three authors contributing weaved together a story together such that it all melded together and one could hardly tell where one author took over for the previous one. They shared portions of the storyline and all the characters were shared, but each author got to focus on a different romance in a Regency House Party.I honestly liked all three romances in the bo [...]

    8. Eloisa James really made this book the four stars I gave it, at least for me. It was my first read by her and I will definitely be looking forward to more of her books.Carolyn Finchley, Hugh Dunne's sister is throwing a house party in order to help Hugh find a wife. He really just doesn't have the time to find one in the usual manner because he's too busy with his prize horses and his stables. So she invites particular ladies that she believs will interest him, however as her house party progres [...]

    9. 3.5hmm it was definitely an interesting read i have to say! was my first time reading Connie and Eloisa`s work,but im very familiar with Julia Quinn`s. The thing is try as it may, i was looking for glimpses of each author but i found the book very well blended and quite interesting.That was a new one for me.It was fun that we followed so many couples in their frustrations and misunderstandings and followed them through to success.The surprise in this book is which one snags which.The coupleswell [...]

    10. This is a novel in three parts, as the cover says, with each author writing a short story but all within one storyline. I'm not a big anthology reader but this didn't do a bad job. The first story, by Julia Quinn, is a love at first sight sort and was sweet if a bit slow.The second, by Connie Brockway, is about a young lady who loves her older brothers friend but as he is older, and a bit of a rakehell, her father refuses courtship and he goes to war so that he can fulfill his promise to the fat [...]

    11. I liked all these though the 2nd was a little boring at point, the 3rd was the best for me, Hugh's story, and the first was too quick to be really good but it was a very nice love at first sight. Both the 2nd and 3rd were friends to lovers, so more easily believed though I didn't really like the premise of the 2nd, man having been left as chaperone and that being the issue. The first was good even though they got together quickly. He realized they had chemistry and if he didn't act, someone else [...]

    12. Another charming series of stories from three excellent authors. I think The Lady Most Willing was funnier but this one was an enjoyable, light read. The last story was a bit peculiar regarding the deceased husband of the widowed h- seemed pretty clear as to where the author was going with this one, just not clear to his poor wife!

    13. 3.5 starsEven though some may find each story a bit short, I liked the idea of a novel in three parts. I found each story charming, nice and sweet and I especially liked the first two love stories (Julia Quinn's one and Connie Brockway's one).

    14. Average rating 1.5 stars.This is the third anthology-esque book that I've read in this genre and I think I might give up. Out of the 10 or 11 stories featured in the three anthologies, I only liked one.Julia Quinn: 1.5 stars. The short featuring Gwen and Alec. Light and fluffy, I was surprisingly underwhelmed by this one. I usually like Julia Quinn's books more than the average HR writer, but this story fell short of the mark. It was humorous but there was so very little character development. I [...]

    15. Three for the price of one or one for the price of three or for the price of one you get three whatever. Yes, we have an anthology.Well, I guess it's an anthology, but unlike a lot of anthologies the authors blend their voices together better than most I've read. I also had a thought when I was reading this: wouldn't it be fun if there was a contest in which three authors wrote an anthology and they didn't sign their names and we as the readers had to guess them. And the winner got a trip to, oh [...]

    16. I have said it before and I will say it again, I am very picky about historical/regency romance novels. I want them to have a great story, but I also want it to be believable along with great writing. When I received this book in the mail, I fell in love with the cover. The dress, the flowers and the overall classiness of the cover was beautiful. I also noticed right away the headlining authors that are popular in this genre. In anthologies, you usually have different stories by different author [...]

    17. I liked it ^^I started reading this book after watching a video for the lovely Julia Quinn regarding the second book in this series, which also made me watch Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and I loved that. Fr me I can start something in the middle that's why I read the first book first.I loved all three couples but the think my favorite are the last two the captain and the earl. since the beginning it was obvious that the earl was interested in his sister's best friend, and i was curious how t [...]

    18. Lady Finchley, the sister to Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, decides to throw a party at her country house inviting the most eligible young ladies. Hugh has decided that it is high time to get married after recently being close to death. He has asked Carolyn to help him find a suitable wife. Carolyn not only plans to match make for her brother but for her best friend Georgina too, who was widowed young. Not two, but three couples find love at this country party.I don't usually read anthologies [...]

    19. I decided since this is a little bit different than an anthology, but is a combination of one story with three mini stories within the one.a bit confusing I know, but if you have already read it, then you probably understand my reasoning perfectly. It starts out with the Earl of Briarly, who thinks he needs a wife more than anything, and asks his sister for help (very uncommon in regency romance) however despite how rare this happens, its definitely a delight and something rare to read. So his s [...]

    20. I was delighted with the first 2/3 of this book. This is a tale of a house party, and a (married) lady who decides to match make from her brother. While it's clear in scene #1 who he'll end up with we don't actually get to his story until the end. First, there are two other love match tales told. I liked that while it is distinctly three parts, they all tie together into the same overall location and tale. What I didn't like was the last 1/3. I didn't understand how the couple suddenly "saw" eac [...]

    21. While the three stories are interconnected, their respective authors keep them separate and contained. This does allow everyone a clear narrative without many of the plot holes that multiple authors leave, but it also makes all three stories incredibly rushed and clipped. There's also no external conflict, except one character in Julia Quinn's third who doesn't make a bit of difference to the plot. Of the thirds, Quinn's is the best and also the most ridiculous. The other two focus on rekindling [...]

    22. Not certain if I have these matched up correctly, but: thoughts: Alec and Gwen (Quinn?) were cute! Yes, the "HE'S SO RUDE" thing was absolutely tossed in there to prevent insta-love, but it wasn't horrible. I liked howhonest with one another they were? Like, I appreciate the candor even though it definitely ~speeds things along. Niell and Kate were--messy. (JAMES. I WOULD BET ON IT.) OF COURSE there's some messy history between them and OF COURSE they have sex in a stable?? I feel like that was [...]

    23. Reactions:A three hands delightful writen novel. If you can not take anything away from the prose, it is the stories that will miss a little something. Indeed, the three stories are interesting but too short and too underdeveloped for my taste. As a reader I would have liked to share the adventures of the three couples and learn a bit more about the three love encounters. Maybe have them compiled in three différents novels. That way I could better appreciate them.For example, all the characters [...]

    24. Cos of Quinn ;)My thoughts:This is not an anthology and that is perhaps why it worked so well for me. But it is still a book written by three authors. Each one takes on a couple and let them fall in love, but it is a flowing novel since it all happens during a house party and each author writes about everyone really.To start this: I liked Julia Quinn's story the best. It was a sudden romance and she always writes such sweet stories I am not gonna say who it is about but it was lovely.The second [...]

    25. Fluffy bit of fluffy that is easy to put down and come back to whenever you feel like it. As mentioned, this is NOT an anthology but interconnected stories basically taking place during a house party. Now I was all ready to give this three stars until the last story. So I must agree that about 2/3 of the book is fun while the last third is just annoying when it actually should have been the capper.I actually forgot that there where three different writers until the final story since the stories [...]

    26. I really enjoyed getting bits of the same story from three wonderful authors, but I enjoyed the stories so much, I wanted more from each author.I bought this book for Julia Quinn, but somehow, I enjoyed her part of the novel the least - I thought it was a bit silly and ridiculous ( I think I rolled my eyes while reading it). I would have liked more background details or history between the characters she focused on in her section. However she still had me laughing as usual, but I didn't enjoy it [...]

    27. THE LADY MOST LIKELY - 3.33 STARSPart 1: Alec & Gwen by Julia Quinn - 4 starsPart 2: Neill & Kate by Connie Brockway - 4 starsPart 3: Hugh & Georgina by Eloisa James - 2 starsI bought this book for Julia Quinn because I have recently become enamored of her writing, but I've also heard good things about Eloisa James. Ironically, my favorite romance of the book was the part that Connie Brockway wrote. This book started out a little slow for me, but I eventually got into it and started [...]

    28. What a fun book! I liked that, rather than being an anthology with three separate stories, the three authors of this book worked three stories into a single cohesive noveld did it well! The characters were well drawn, and the details were sprinkled in to add wonderful historical flavor (rather than lumped in to show how much an author knows about the period).The only thing that bothered me about this book were the editing mistakes: there were maybe a handful of them (mostly title/continuity thin [...]

    29. This book was fun to read and I really liked it, although I'm pretty sure I would have loved it when Julia Quinn would have written it alone. I loved her part of the story. Gwen and Alec were wonderful characters and I really liked their story. The next part was written by Connie Brockway and that was my least favourite part of the story. Kate and Neill were a bit bloodless and I didn't care that much about what happened to them. That was a pity because I'm sure that their story could have been [...]

    30. This was a fun read--not quite an anthology--more a novel in 3 parts, but not exactly that either. I did enjoy it quite a bit, because it was more tightly woven together than most anthologies. The premise is that a nobleman has decided it's time to get married, but his sister won't simply give him a list. She invites a number of eligible ladies--not ditzy debutantes, but somewhat older ladies--and some bachelors as well, so that the lady her brother doesn't marry won't be left out in the cold, b [...]
