This is my first book by this author. I admit that the the first chapter was a bit difficult to get into. There was a lot of action, but my initial thought was, "what is this foolishness?" However, by the second chapter, I was totally engrossed in the book. The plot is so original; I have never read anything like it. There are so many twists and suprises. I love all of the main characters. The father was especially entertaining; he is the most concieted and humorus character I have ever come across. All that to say that I will be reading more books by this author. This book is definately a keeper.
Heyer is a good writer of the Romance genre. She has great characters.
Ms Heyer showed us that a hero and heroine could be sensible, quietish and pleasantly good looking and still be the kind of hero and heroine that most readers would thrill to -- heroes and heroines didn't always have to be devastatingly good looking or rakish.
A quintessential Heyer. A charming, sweet period romance.
Good solid plot and story. I could not help liking the father and had to reread the first chapter after I figured out how it was being told...lol... loved the story. I could still put it down though and did not feel like I had to finish it in one setting. Hence, the 3.5 stars...
Haven't read this. It's part of my daughters' completed section of romances.
