This is one of my favorites by Georgette Heyer! It's a lovely caper full of humor and romance. I think a book that can make me laugh out loud is a good one, and this one had me giggling throughout. Thumbs up!
With a fairly cute, though unoriginal, premise--"False Colours" held some promise of being one of Georgette Heyer's charming Regency romances. Unfortunately, the story never really got off the ground. The characters lacked the usual sparkle of Heyer's writing. All I can assume is that this book was written hurriedly to fulfill a contract obligation. If you have never read a Georgette Heyer, I highly recommend starting off with a different one (such as "Arabella" or "Frederica") Only read "False Colours" if you already love Heyer's works and can account for an off book here or there!
