Murder by Death
Murder by Death rated it 4 years ago
I almost didn't finish this book. To say I found Eustacie frivolous and vapid would be an understatement, but fellow BL's said it was an entertaining read so I stuck with it. They were right, but those first three chapters almost killed me. At the end of the book, I still think Eustacie is frivo...

I finished this one back in October, and have delayed writing this review for reasons I can’t entirely explain. Actually, I have two more Heyer posts to write, and I won’t allow myself to post the third – The Marriage of Convenience – until I get the other two up. That is probably the only reason I ...

Yesterday's re-read. I remembered most of the plot, but I'd forgotten just how good Sarah Thane and Tristram Shield are together. The slow growth of their understanding is a thing of beauty. A Georgian rather than a Regency, for anyone who enjoys keeping count.

A re-read of one of my favorite Heyer's. I like the combination of humor, mystery and a little bit of danger. This is all sparkly wit, great plotting and enjoyable characters. The romance is low key and almost an after-thought, but you can't help but enjoy how Sarah and Tristam become aware and a...

How annoying were Eustacie and Ludovic? I cared so little about their fate and mostly did not find them amusing. I know they are a parody of young romantics and serve as a foil for the older and more sensible couple, but I really wanted Ludovic to get slapped at certain points where he insists on re...

Oh, I have wanted to re-read this one for a long time now and have just finally found an audio version on AudioGo. I already own every unabridged Georgette Heyer title on Audible.com (except the historicals because I don't wish to re-read them) so I was thrilled to finally find something I don't alr...

When I started reading this book I thought I was not going to like it. I thought that Eustacie was the main character... and boy, she was feather-head in my opinion. Then, in the following chapters Sarah Thane appeared and all was good.She reminded me Abigail from Black Sheep... in her late-tweentie...

I used to watch the crap out of “Days of Our Lives”. I didn't watch daily; that's not really necessary with soaps. If you want to follow soaps, catch the odd Monday and Friday. Friday is when everything comes to a mini-crisis, ending on a maybe not so much a cliff- as a hill-hanger. Monday go-carts ...

My first finished Heyer's book after trying to read Black Moth and abandoned it halfway. It's funny and I love how they acted, bantered, and having a thoroughly good time trying to clear Ludovic's name from murder accusation. I might try other books from her if I can be sure that it's the same sort ...
