Publisher's Summary

Sir Phillip knew that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he'd proposed, figuring that she'd be homely and unassuming, and more than a little desperate for an offer of marriage. Except...she wasn't. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quiet, and when she stopped talking long enough to close her mouth, all he wanted to do was kiss her... and more. Did he think she was mad?

Eloise Bridgerton couldn't marry a man she had never met! But then she started thinking...and wondering...and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match. Except...he wasn't. Her perfect husband wouldn't be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was a large brute of a man, rough and rugged, and totally unlike the London gentlemen vying for her hand. But when he smiled...and when he kissed her...the rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn't help but wonder...could this imperfect man be perfect for her?

Very Enjoyable! Listened in 1 day

If you could sum up To Sir Phillip, with Love in three words, what would they be?

Him: Tall, hunky, handsome -- Her: fiesty, beautiful, understanding

What did you like best about this story?

Synopsis: Sir Phillip Crane, 30 years old, has recently lost his wife of 8 years to severe, chronic depression. In those days they called it melancholy. His wife attempts suicide by drowning in a near frozen lake and dies several days later. The Crane's have disrespectful and undisciplined 7 year old twins who have been left to the care of numerous nannies and nurses. Mrs. Crane's never married cousin Eloise, age 28, starts a kind letter conversation with Sir Phillip for 1 year following the mourning of his wife, whom he did not love.

Eloise shows up at his doorstep one evening, the children playing terrible pranks on her, Phillip yelling at them. The next day the only way Phillip can stop her mouth from talking incessantly is to kiss her! And the romance begins! Eloise a force to be reckoned with and just what Phillip and the children have needed so badly.

This story had me chuckling at Eloise and Phillip's banter numerous times, and laughing out loud while they were having an argument in the greenhouse when "her mouth was moving and no words came out." There are 2 scenes of sex and they were pretty hot!

It ends happy and satisfying, albeit a bit quick, I wanted the story to go on.

Any additional comments?

This is a good Austen Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett type story.

WELL DONE!

What did you love best about To Sir Phillip, with Love?

Altho there is so much honesty in Ms Quinn's stories, I really enjoyed this one. To have a 2nd chance at life itself is awesome. To get to know ones self is better as you are facing it. A delightful book!

Another good in the collection but...

...the narration! My gosh, I swear. Rosalyn Landor could read the ingredients on a bag of dog food and keep people fully engaged!

This book was fast and sweet. No real major undying conflict, just the tell tale of how Eloise and Phillip ended up together. Nice, lightweight story. There were some funny moments and even some tear jerkers. The story did touch on what is now known as clinical depression, compounded with post partum depression, and the unpleasant ending that those can evoke. It wasn’t heavy in the stotyline, but it was present.

Rosalyn, as I mentioned above, is a phenomenal narrator, and one who many adore. She did a great job in this, and I actually forgot on occasion, that it was one person reading!

I think this was part of a 2 for 1 sale, and definitely worth it for that, but as much as I enjoyed the story, I’m not sure it would be worth an entire credit. It was a super fast story and it caught me off guard that it was over when it ended. Lol

Just ok

This is probably my least favorite story. It never felt like the couple fell in love with each other let alone desired each other. The tension that a great story was lacking in the end it felt like rhe heroine just settled.

Whine

Would you try another book from Julia Quinn and/or Rosalyn Landor?

I like Julia Quinn and the Bridgerton series, however, this book had the male character whining too much. Julia was just filing up space and forcing a book, Eloise deserved better.

What was most disappointing about Julia Quinn’s story?

No respect for Sir Philip, his character seemed to be whining and he had no depth of character. I do not enjoy books when adult males whine.

Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator.

Did To Sir Phillip, with Love inspire you to do anything?

no

Good Book, Not complete

I enjoyed this story as much as the rest of the books in this series . The writing and performance were as expected. However, the second epilogue was not included in this book.

Favorite in series

This was my favorite so far in the Bridgerton series. Characters were relatable. I do wish we knew more about how things developed for this new family.

Disjointed, Frustrating and Stupid.

I had real problems finishing, I never workout the real characters of the people involved.
The demon children, who were evil periodical and beaten.
The hero who has run away from all responsibility, but angst over his childhood beatings. Is selfish, throws temper tantrums; then worries about his lack of control.
Then the heroine; well she is the worst of them all. Apparently she is 29 and has taken control of her life, yet she can't make a decision and stick to it. Brags about her experience with her brothers, but it bested by a couple of kids. She is the most immature, and despite all her posturing , allows herself to be forced into marriage. The characters jump from one position to another that it is hard to keep up. Goodness knows how it all resolved itself; I had retired and left the story to run out.

Great relaxing listen

Really enjoyed this. I found it easy listening and engaging. It's not Shakespeare but good fun and well constructed characters.
