Another enjoyable Georgette Heyer and this time by a new reader. I thought she did very well to maintain Horatia's attractive stammer all the way through. These books are sheer escapism and just what is needed!

This story is a good standard Heyer romp with some wonderful supporting characters like Pom, Sir Roland Pomeroy. His well meaning and chivalrous attempts to help her brother Pelham rescue Hero (who is actually the heroine) keep falling flat because the poor man is just not very bright.
The background is a marriage of convenience between a teenage bride and a 35 year old groom. He falls for her, she for him but the little matters of his long term mistress (pre-marriage) and her determination not to wear her heart on her sleeve lead to a lot of problems. It's got the lot from Almacks to highwaymen - and an attempted hold up that goes gloriously wrong.
It's one where the comedy seems to come across better when heard than read and Caroline Hunt does that excellently. Shame she hasn't read more Heyers. Recommended.

Its another great Georgette Heyer story! I am sooo glad that I kept looking for this, so that I got it almost as soon as it was fixed. (... and it only took them almost 5 months ...)
It is fun, light, and I often just laughed out loud. (Just another crazy lady laughing to herself at the mall...) I enjoyed Caroline Hunt's characterizations, too. If you like Georgette Heyer, you'll love this one!

I really enjoyed Georgette Heyer's story. Great characters laugh out loud situations. It took me a while to get used to the narrator's voice for Horatia. I got used to it after a while, but I think the stutter could have been handled better.
