What Happens in London Summary


What Happens in London - Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of London

When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something.

Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . . .

    I love Julia Quinn's books! The Bridgertons, the Smythe-Smith musicales, all of it. So fun, so FUNNY, and a world unto themselves - and I thank you for pulling me in. However this one is my favorite so far. Ms. Quinn's humor is hysterical, and I love her lurid gothic novel moments - so funny hahaha!
  • Absolutely wonderful

    I loved this book and every one of the characters. It’s SO hilarious too, I laughed so hard. I only wish there were more with Olivia & Harry at the end. They appear again in “Ten Things I Love About You” (which is also a total delight and also funny and which I read first, unfortunately), but I feel a definite case of “Harry & Olivia, yes” & “Harry & Olivia, MORE!” needs to be addressed.
  • Best and funniest book ever!

    This is by far my favorite book! The humor is top notch, with a very engaging story line. I didn't think the Bridgerton series could be matched, but this definitely does!
  • Fun To Read

    This is the second book in the Bevelstoke Series. As expected, it has the JQ trademark of wit and humor. I had fun reading this book. JQ fans will not be disappointed.
