Listener Opinions

    " There is simply nothing like a good Georgette Heyer, and this is a good one. Read it so you can experience the author who inspired an entire genre of fiction. Read it so you can drop into another world. Read it for the great characters and twisting plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 2/3/2014

    " Although not one of Heyer's most lively regencies, it is one that I enjoy more with each rereading. Amusingly, I can pinpoint almost exactly when I read it because somehow (blushing) the copy from my junior high library never made it back to the school... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Editt | 1/24/2014

    " The plot, despite having been revved up by a gothic element, was predictable. Gervase and Drusilla as a couple had potential but lacked some bonding elements that left me feeling lukewarm when they finally got together. This books is at the bottom of my list of Georgette Heyer books. (To be fair, I've gobbled up all of her books so take that last sentence with a grain of salt.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/17/2014

    " More action than usual in this Regency novel - clever plotting with a bit of mystery, and as ever with Heyer, an exciting and satisfying conclusion. Wonderfully drawn characters, very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/12/2014

    " A Regency mystery/romance similar in style to Wilkie Collins. I really enjoyed both the characters and the plot and look forward to reading more of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia | 1/10/2014

    " More mystery than romance, but I enjoyed both aspects anyway. The hero is one of Heyer's apparently meek but masterly anyway heroes. I'd figured out who the villain was and what his game was fairly early on, and the romance was in pretty small moments/details, but it was a pleasant and well-written read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/10/2014

    " I really loved this. I think is my new favorite Heyer novel. It was amazing. It as all heyer novels keeps you guessing until almost the very end as to whodunnit. Or rather who is out to get whom and why. A little romance, a little mystery and alot of wit and charm. If you love Georgette Heyer and haven't read this one try it, you'll love it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 liz | 1/5/2014

    " I only made it about 30 pqges into this book before I gave up. I could never tell who's POV the story was coming from and so much talking and rambling that I just couldn't stand it. I don't think I'll try reading another book by this author again. ugh! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith Jacobs | 1/4/2014

    " Feeding my Jane Austin Fix! If you love Jane Austin and need a fix this is the road to go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valentine | 12/29/2013

    " Decent escapism, but not one of Heyer's best. Still, it's always good to read a Regency novel that isn't a brainless romance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate Edmondson | 12/15/2013

    " Good book, but NOT a romance - this is more of a murder mystery. It was very different from Georgette Heyer's usual fare. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 12/8/2013

    " This one had a bit of a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Goodnight | 12/4/2013

    " Excellent story! I'm particularly partial to the fact that the heroine is quiet & on the plump side; the hero, while dashingly handsome, is also quiet and kind but firm & steady in his purpose. The secondary characters especially Mr. & Mrs. Morville and Lady Frant are superbly drawn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kati | 11/2/2013

    " This was more mystery than love story. Not a bad thing, but more time was spent on events and suspicions than character development. It was a fun read, but not as witty or upbeat as others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 1/18/2013

    " The mystery is dull, the culprit obvious, the lead couple unconvincing as lovers. Heyer's writing style elevates everything she does, but there are limits. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rawles | 5/23/2012

    " I loved the couple in this so so much! It was also super funny, BUT the degree of slut-shaming and victim-blaming that went on with a secondary female character was just too much for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/11/2012

    " For anyone who loves Jane Austen and wishes she had written more books, check out Georgette Heyer. This book reminded me so much of Jane Austen's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 12/19/2011

    " More mystery than love story. Enjoyed Ger as a main character. His intelligent, quiet authority reminded me so much of the Count of Monte Cristo. Now it's on to my next Heyer story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 5/13/2011

    " I have a not-so-secret weakness for Heyer, and Heyer with a vaguely gothic twist even more so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 carrietracy | 4/24/2011

    " This book of Heyer's is very light on the romance, definitely not one to read if you're looking for love. It's far more a story of intrigue in a family. Still fun and light reading just not what I was expecting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valentine | 4/19/2011

    " Decent escapism, but not one of Heyer's best. Still, it's always good to read a Regency novel that isn't a brainless romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/4/2011

    " First Heyer I've ever read- I liked it. Other people mentioned guessing the mystery, but I didn't (of course, I never do). I liked how it was resolved, though, especially because I liked the guy who did it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kati | 3/22/2011

    " This was more mystery than love story. Not a bad thing, but more time was spent on events and suspicions than character development. It was a fun read, but not as witty or upbeat as others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 2/21/2011

    " A soldier returns from the Continent to claim his inheritance and is visited by several mysterious accidents. A low-key mystery and romance, with her usual stellar cast of supporting characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra aka Sleo | 12/18/2010

    " Mindless, pleasant. Narrator not as good as Frederica. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/8/2010

    " A quiet romance but a good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri | 11/1/2010

    " How have I missed Georgette Heyer all these years? Enjoyed it. Better written than most these days. Actually challenging vocabulary! "
