Resourceful, adventurous and utterly indefatigable, Sophy is hardly the mild-mannered girl that the Rivenhalls expect when they agree to take her in. Kind-hearted Aunt Lizzy is shocked; stern Cousin Charles and his humourless fiancée Eugenia are disapproving. With her inimitable mixture of exuberance and grace Sophy soon sets about endearing herself to her family, but finds herself increasingly drawn to her cousin. Can she really be falling in love with him, and he with her? And what of his betrothal to Eugenia?

    " Super fun, light reading. Just loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryal | 2/7/2014

    " Very well written but not exciting enough for me. She uses formal language from her time period of the the early 1900's. If you are a regency junkie you would probably like this as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joycelyn | 2/6/2014

    " Suprisingly, not one of my favorite Heyer books. The heroine and her plots were just a little over the top. Still a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rrshively | 1/29/2014

    " Such a lively romp! No sooner does Sophie arrive at the Rivenhall family's home than her high jinx begin. She must set about righting all the wrongs that are occurring in her dear relatives' family. This involves what is considered shocking behavior by those adhering to strict society rules. In the meantime, will her cousin Charles find an appropriate match for her as her father wishes? The last scene of the book involves such a mixture of people and problems that it is almost bedlam. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 1/26/2014

    " Loved Sophy!! An amazingly, brash person!! She was very clever. Liked this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Rowe | 1/20/2014

    " My favorite Georgette Hayer book. Sophy's adventures are funny and captivating. The book keeps you guessing until the very end. A suspenseful, can't put it down, classic romance. In the numerous Hayer books I read all in a row, this one stood out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista Mercer | 1/19/2014

    " A classic. Sophy returns to England from the battlefields of Spain (her father is a diplomat) and discovers her cousins in desperate need of her organizational skills. This summary, of course, doesn't do justice to Heyer's wit or clever characterization. Laugh-out-loud funny in spots! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerensa | 1/16/2014

    " I loved this one and it might be my favourite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/5/2014

    " Every character was so silly and each of them had no particular sense; but I guess that's the fun of the book. Don't read this if you can't take a joke or tend to take everything seriously. It's meant to be purely fun and cathartic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 12/27/2013

    " What a fun read. Thanks Cat! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 12/14/2013

    " I've read tons of Georgette Heyer books most of them more than once and absolutely love them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/13/2013

    " This was a fun book. Sophy is a fun character. It is a typical one of her stories but I enjoyed it none the less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 FloJ | 12/8/2013

    " this is the book i pick up to read when i am feeling depressed. it never fails to make me feel better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 12/7/2013

    " I love a good Georgette Heyer and this is one of her best! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danac | 10/30/2013

    " I think I found a new author to read! Her story was wonderful, complex, realistic characters, and NO LOVE! Characters developed friendship, not passion! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 10/13/2013

    " A fun romp. A spunky heroine, a colorful cast of characters. I think if anyone likes regency romance, they will like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Wilcoxen | 9/25/2013

    " All of Georgette's books are so well written it is often her last book which I have just finished which is my favorite!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandi | 7/8/2013

    " Georgette Heyer makes it a-okay for people to marry their cousins (which is in all reality how it was back then... it just has a certain 'ick' factor.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drea | 7/2/2013

    " I really found this book enjoyable. It took a little getting used to the regency styled writing/prose, but once I got a bit of a hang of it I completely enjoyed the story and the overall fun of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gilly | 5/20/2013

    " I'm not generally into Regency romances, but I've been hearing about this one for so long I finally gave in and read it. Turns out it is, in fact, a very entertaining book with much more relatable characters than I would have expected. Fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dlords | 5/6/2013

    " I enjoyed Sophy! What a fun character! Extremely perceptive, clever, and calculating--in a positive way. Though she turns their lives upside down, they are happier for it in the end. A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 2/2/2013

    " This book is such a treat. Sophy is a whirlwind and a delight. The mischief and scheming is never ending. I loved her constant antagonizing of Charles. Their relationship is really the most fun to read. Made for a Masterpiece production. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Smoesinger | 11/5/2012

    " Hilarious main character, very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 9/8/2012

    " Maybe my favorite Georgette Heyer. I also love Arabella, Venetia, and Regency Buck. This one has the most dialogue and the most humor. Light, romantic (clean), funny. Heyer wrote in the 1930's in England. More entertaining than Jane Austen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 3/18/2012

    " I would have given this book a five, except for the sudden, unexpected anti-Semitism. I skip that chapter for the rest of the romp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey | 10/25/2011

    " Enjoyed it. Involves matchmaking and meddling similar to Jane Austen's Emma, but with more success. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherrill | 10/18/2011

    " One of my favorite Georgette Heyer's yet! Sophy is so clever, independent, and diplomatic! As always Georgette Heyer creates a family that I fell in love with too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sadie | 10/7/2011

    " A little dated but better than I would have thought considering it's from the '50s. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pragan | 9/26/2011

    " lively story that makes you fall in love with the main character Sophy... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 9/25/2011

    " Jane Austen meets Oscar Wilde. A delightful read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felechia | 9/23/2011

    " This was really fun. A great escape to another time and place with a feisty heroine and witty language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pammccormick | 9/21/2011

    " Very reminiscent of Jane Austen's writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greeneyedlady | 9/14/2011

    " My all-time favourite when it comes to the historical novels of Georgette Heyer. The humour with which it is written can still make me laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phoebe | 9/14/2011

    " Entertaining. I guess Georgette Heyer is the John Grisham of Jane Austen. "
