On the Way to the Wedding (Bridgertons, #8)

On the Way to the Wedding (Bridgertons, #8)

First Lines: His lungs were on fire. Gregory Bridgerton was running. Through the streets of London, oblivious to the curious stares of onlookers, he was running.

And with this book, we have finally reached the end of the Bridgerton series! I now feel much better qualified to judge/pick apart the Netflix series, now that I know all the characters better. Lol.

Unlike most men of his age, Gregory Bridgerton believes in true love. He’s seen it many times within his own family. And he’s now convinced that when he sees the right woman, he will fall in love at first sight. And that’s just what happens. Except, well, she’s not actually the right one. Miss Hermione Watson is actually in love with someone else. Her best friend, the ever-practical Lady Lucinda Abernathy, wants to save Hermione from this horrid alliance, so she offers to help Gregory win her over. But in the process, Lucy falls for Gregory. And Lucy’s already engaged to someone else, in a betrothal she can’t get out of even when Gregory comes to his senses. So now, on the way to a wedding, Gregory will have to lay everything on the line in the hopes of becoming the only man at the altar for her.

Another solid book in the Bridgerton series. Gregory is the last of the siblings to find love and it was kind of fun to watch that happen to him.

However, I daresay Lucy is a better character than Gregory. There was nothing wrong with Gregory, but I felt like Lucy was more fleshed-out, more well-rounded, more interesting. She’s got a pretty best friend that everyone falls for and she’s left to just watch guy after guy fling himself at Hermione–and never at her. I felt like that really showed us a lot about who she is based on how she reacted to that. I mean, she was just a fantastic person and character for this story. Gregory seems shallow and fickle by comparison.

The story is interesting and perhaps one of the more dangerous books in the series. There are pretty high stakes and things are constantly twisting in different and semi-unexpected ways. It was a fun little adventure, even if it did stretch credulity a bit.
