First Comes Scandal: A Bridgertons Prequel

Avon. (Bridgerton Prequel, Bk. 4). Apr. 2020. 288p. ISBN 9780062956163. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Compromised by a scandal involving an attempted kidnapping, Georgiana Bridgerton agrees to marry childhood friend Nicholas Rokesby, who is called home from his medical studies in Edinburgh to aid in the crisis. The two wed quickly and prepare to return to Edinburgh, when on the long journey there, Nicholas discovers Georgie’s mutual interest in medicine, and they realize they might not wish to have as strictly a platonic relationship as they once thought. Nicholas and Georgie’s hijinks are charming, and it’s a joy to watch Georgie’s fascination with the medical field in Georgian England evolve in this fourth prequel to the beloved “Bridgerton” series (e.g., The Sum of All Kisses).
VERDICT Quinn is in her usual fine form. The newly launched Netflix series will ensure more fans, but Nicholas and Georgie will be a hit with longtime readers and newcomers alike.
