These Old Shades
These Old Shades - Georgette Heyer 3.5 stars (the +0.5 come from the ending)
I enjoyed this book but a little bit less than what I was expecting. I don't know if it was the setting (Heyer is much more versed in English society than French) or the couple (I was rooting for another hero for the most part of the book) or the heroine herself (who was a little too naïve for what she'd lived and for my liking) or something else. However, these flaws didn't remove much from my reading enjoyment because when I noticed I had already passed the 50% mark by far in one sitting…
Now, I'll stop writing this review so I can start Devil's Cub ASAP.

Why Shoot a Butler?
Why Shoot A Butler? - Georgette Heyer

An accidental re-read, but an enjoyable one.  As I started reading it, I remembered my frustration the first time around with the slow, purposefully vague start, but once into it, I enjoyed the banter and the mystery again - and had no recollection as to whodunnit.

Cotillion - Georgette Heyer

I was in the mood for a light read and while I was perusing my TBR piles, boxes, and shelves, I came across this and remembered that Lillelara had recently read it and enjoyed it.


I definitely enjoyed The Grand Sophy better, but this one got me through without complaint.  I struggled to really feel invested in the story or any of the characters though; it seemed to missing just that little bit of depth - or else my reading slump had dulled my reading sense, rendering everything a bit duller.  Given Heyer's hit and miss record, either is possible.  Or perhaps a bit of both:  the final scene at Rattray's rectory perked me right up; in that moment, the characters popped to life for me and I cared about what happened next.  


I haven't read even close to Heyer's entire backlist, but I'd firmly place this midway on a scale of those I've read so far.

"Stands to reason if you´re in it I must be too."


Freddy, you adorable human being. You think you aren´t smart enough, good enough, worthy enough, but you are pure perfection. I really loved his character.


And hands down, my favorite thing about this book has been the relationship between Kitty and Freddy, a match made in heaven between two people, who just get each other. One of the cutest couples I have read about in a very long time. These two made me feel all fuzzy and warm inside and that´s coming from one of the most unromantic souls on this planet.


Out of the three Heyer´s I have read so far, this one is my favorite.

I admit it, I´m developing a teeny tiny crush on the male main character in this book. Freddy is such a sweetheart.
