The Nonesuch

I was so surprised by the previous comments. I thought the narration was very good compared to some of the Georgette Heyer books I have purchased. She managed to bring the characters to life and made me smile with some of the humorous passages. Will listen to again. Well done. Perhaps she can read Arabella which is one of my favourites and not yet available

Perfect escapist Regency romance

I love Georgette Heyer although or possibly because all her books have the same elements: impossibly splendid hero who is a very pink of the ton, an unlikely heroine, a glamorous rival, misunderstandings galore, epic descriptions of cravats, landaus and everyone's clothes. The thing that sets Heyer apart is the impeccable research, splendid use of Regency slang and the fact that they are cracking good stories and immense amounts of escapist fun.

All they need is a good narrator and Eve Matheson does just fine.

A cup of tea, a slice of cake and some Georgette Heyer. Bliss.

But, Jeez, that cover is grim. What were they thinking?
