3.5 stars? I am nonplussed.I will tolerate the casual racism typical of Heyer's work as a product of it's time--the excitable French and lazy Spaniards are usually drawn with some affection. But in this book we get an outright Shylockian loan shark, greasily "Semitic", hooked nose and all--which goe...

A re-read, inspired by Nikki's delightful review http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/689246454 Thanks, Nikki.This is an enchanting novel, one of Heyer’s best, although it’s not as funny as some of her other novels. It invites multiple gentle smiles and some snickers, not uproarious laughter.Sophy, ...

Great comedy is extremely difficult t...

I concur with most of the other reviewers. Georgette Heyer is one of my all-time favorite authors. What readers discover in her books is the witty humor, the scholarly attention to period detail, the romance, her use of language, successful, elaborate, well-schemed, flawlessly executed, plots, fasci...

This is a really fun book about a complete hoyden who turns people's lives upside down. For their own good, of course.I give it four and a half stars instead of five only because there are a couple of little things that made me uncomfortable. Heyer's very good at historical accuracy, but I guess I'm...
