Likeable unglamorous couple
Reviewed in Australia on 30 November 2019
The thing I like the most about this book is that the main characters are not at all glamorous. Eloise is not the belle of the ball, instead she is an over talkative person. Phillip is an avoider who rushes off to his greenhouse the minute anything becomes emotional. But they are both very likeable indeed.
After finding she is the only single woman left in her social group, Eloise slips away from her protective family to visit a possible husband...a man she only knows through letters. But on arriving she realises Phillip and his children are unhappy and dysfunctional. Has she made the biggest mistake of her life?
While ‘Sir Phillip’ has a sweet romance it is not escapist HR. The characters are too real, their problem too relatable. It more of a heartwarming human interest story, with the Bridgerton brothers providing moments of laugh out loud humour.
