Just Like Heaven - Julia Quinn The beginning was extremely slow, and I simply couldn't get into this book. It lacks the humor and warmth that Quinn is famous for, and I found Just Like Heaven to be a huge disappointment until the last 100 pages or so.

All the other books by JQ always have lots of family scenes and sibling bickering, but they were mostly missing from this book. There were only a handful of scenes with the Smythe-Smith family, and next to none with Honoria's siblings.

All the descriptions about the dreadful event that is the Smythe-Smith family's annual musical were hilarious, and I regained at least a little of the interest I usually have in Quinn's novels. Nonetheless, the ending was too rushed and anti-climactic after dragging the story on for so long. But I still look forward to the next book in the series, because I'm hoping it'll be better and give me back everything I've come to expect from JQ.
