Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/13/2014

    " This one is pretty well The Convenient Marriage recycled, with a few other elements recycled from other books of Heyer's. Of course, it could well be the reverse, because I don't know the chronology of her books - just the order in which I read them. This one's dialogue isn't nearly so fast-paced and brilliant as in other books of Heyer's. I still really enjoyed this one, though I will have to take a break from Heyer for a few reads. She's getting a bit too fluffy to keep reading straight through all her works. "

    " I find it difficult to enjoy a book when I don't really care for the protagonist: Nell is sweet, but rather insipid. On the other hand, I began by really liking Cardross, but since he just stayed the same through the whole book, his character was kind of disappointing, too. There just wasn't anything worth recommending about this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/20/2013

    " I'm not sure what the title of this book refers to, but it is the story of a young girl from a family of gamblers who has married a rich, older man. Intrigue ensues when she fails to divulge all her outstanding bills to her husband and enlists her hapless brother's aid to cover her debts. These are breezy, fun reads. Formulaic, but with rich language and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doris | 12/17/2013

    " This ended way better than I thought it was going to. Even though most elements are recycled from other of her books, I was still reading really fast at the end. Another fast, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 10/19/2013

    " I have been re-reading some Georgette Heyer, and it's fun. I was surprised at how long-winded she sometimes seems to be, however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 10/1/2013

    " More fun for the stressed. Best part of this book is that we can see exactly where it's going, but not the innumerable twists on the way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 6/25/2013

    " 2.5 stars. It was a little better than just okay. Georgette Heyer is very hit and miss, I adore some of her books and others not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristelle | 5/21/2013

    " This book took me a little while to get into but once I did it was a fun read and a cute story. Only people who enjoy the Jane Austen type books will really get into this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allysen | 5/9/2013

    " I know, a three for Georgette Heyer. But its hard for me to read when the supporting characters take on a life of their own and are really really annoying. I like the books much better when they stick with the main characters. Still, sweet book, cute love story. Predictable but cute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tahmina | 12/4/2012

    " A charming story. Nell's innocence is so refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 10/20/2012

    " I think I liked this one more in theory than I did in execution. But I really did like the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 8/19/2012

    " Not one of my favorites but even the lesser Heyer offerings are better than most other historical romance writers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 7/30/2012

    " Although written in 1957, this was a nice little period novel. It had the flavor of Anna Karenina, but it could never be boring as that piece of rubbish. I have to check out the other books she has written... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marleah | 3/11/2012

    " Not my favorite Georgette Heyer but unlike others I liked this better than A Convenient Marriage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 2/20/2012

    " I love that Heyer can write a romance where the main charters are already married and still keep in funny and intriguing. In the words of Heyer this book was all the crack. (Love the slang) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 10/16/2011

    " Another of my favorite Heyers. Its a mix of the serious and the silly which just works for me. The scene near the end when Cardross confronts his wife is one of my favorites and I'll reread the book just so that I can experience that emotion again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 8/12/2011

    " Not as good as I had hoped. Very typical plot with okay characters. I had heard good things about Georgette Heyer, but after reading April Lady I decided not to open any of her other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Felicia | 7/4/2011

    " I couldn't wait to finish this book just to get it over. I'm mad at myself for even finishing it when there are so many other good books out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peregrina651 | 6/14/2011

    " I finished it just to get it off my list. Not one of my top favorite GH stories but then again all of her stuff is on my re-read list. ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 5/10/2011

    " A wonderful example of why communication is so imperative in a relationship. Sometimes I wanted to shake the silly girl and tell her to just talk to her husband! Ah well, still humorous... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 penelopewanders | 4/25/2011

    " Well-written but rather too irritating with such an insipid heroine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 2/14/2011

    " Great Valentine's Day read! Nell Pevensey and Giles Cardross take the lead, followed by Letty Cardross and Jeremy Allandale, with Dysart Pevensey and Felix Hethersett pulling up the respectable rear. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jhd21181 | 1/25/2011

    " This was another fun romance. It wasn't her best, but I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/11/2010

    " Another of my favorite Heyers. Its a mix of the serious and the silly which just works for me. The scene near the end when Cardross confronts his wife is one of my favorites and I'll reread the book just so that I can experience that emotion again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 8/29/2010

    " Charming and witty regency tale of a very young bride who gets caught in her white lies. Full of regency slang--all the crack! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggi | 6/7/2010

    " Another charming Heyer story. Her books set in the Regency were her tour de force. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 6/4/2010

    " A wonderful example of why communication is so imperative in a relationship. Sometimes I wanted to shake the silly girl and tell her to just talk to her husband! Ah well, still humorous... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/12/2010

    " Good, but she is a peagoose, as the other characters say. "
