Quinn’s Just Like Heaven is the dazzling first part of a charming quartet of Regency-era tales depicting the romantic exploits of the well-intentioned but less accomplished musicians of Smythe Smith; in this case, a beautiful violinist in the pathetic group that makes it up has her sights set on marrying the last bachelor Bridgerton…unless her handsome, infatuated guardian objects. Bridgerton fans will scream “Encore!”, as will any reader who loves England’s Regency period and great love stories that are quite smart, very funny, and also the light-hearted.

The Smythe-Smiths have been a running joke in your books for, what, a decade? But always in the shadows, always supporting characters, never given his first name, until now. We finally meet the infamous Smythe Smith girls. I think JQ wisely begins with the crowd of 1824 that is more prominently featured in other books: this is, I believe, the Romancing Mr Bridgerton series, in which Lady Danbury so wisely addresses the cellist’s plight.
Honoria Smythe-Smith is not the lousy cellist. She is a gleefully cruel violinist. Contrary to popular belief, she is well aware that musicals are an insult to songwriters and hurt anyone’s ears. But she doesn’t care. She participates in a good mood because it is a family tradition. That’s very sweet of her and a good indication of how important her family is to her. And that’s really what drives Honoria in this book: the need for a family. She is the youngest of five who are all married and away from home, and lately her life has been too quiet and lonely.
So she is determined to get married in the third season of her on the market. Little does she know that Marcus Holroyd, a friend of her brother’s (currently in hiding in Italy after an unfortunate duel), is “taking care” of her in her absence, which has meant scaring everyone so far. her suitors. They have known each other since she was six years old when he visited her brother during school vacations. Suddenly, however, he begins to feel for her more than just his duty, and she sees him in an unsisterly way.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older and more tired these days or what, but I was starting to get a little annoyed by the fourth day marriage trope. So I really enjoyed that Marcus and Honoria have known each other for so long. I like the relationship to be something that has grown over time and not something that manifests over a weekend.
The friendship to romance story is a calmer kind of story, and in Just Like Heaven it’s quite beautiful. JQ is always at his best when he writes quick, witty dialogue, and Marcus and Honoria get a lot of it. They joke around so easily that it’s not hard to imagine their continued marital bliss where they happily tease each other for decades.
My only complaint about this book is that I feel like the middle section, where Marcus is sick, drags on too long. I would have liked to see more of them in London, together with other people, because JQ does it very well. He wanted more of Honoria with her cousins, he wanted more of the conflict with Marcus and Honoria’s brother, he wanted drama about Hugh and Ramsgate (maybe they’ll be back in another book?).
Instead, we have a lot of bedside pain/bedside inactivity, and that’s not really my cup of tea. I could use a little more heat too. I think JQ’s main weakness as a romance novelist is that her books aren’t always as engaging as they could be. I would love for him to start taking a few more risks when it comes to achievement.
The HEA is really beautiful, especially with Honoria deciding on next year’s musical. Her love for her family is so palpable right now. I’m pretty sure cousins Iris and Sarah will get their own books, but I’m not sure about the most effervescent and deluded member of this year’s quartet, Daisy. I wonder if the fourth will be the governess who has to fill in if Sarah “takes ill” at the last minute, Miss Wynter; JQ apparently spent an inordinate amount of time with her, and such is indicative of the importance that will come from her.
Overall, Just Like Heaven is a good sparkling read. It’s not impressive, but it’s solid and quite charming. This is not a book if you’re looking for an epic plot, gripping drama, or dark psychological complexity, but if you’re looking for a warm and cozy read, something to take to the beach or snuggle up with a nice cuppa. of tea, “Just Like Heaven” hits the spot.
