The Reluctant Widow--Georgette Heyer

| | Comments (2)

Not a review at this point, merely a note to say that this is current reading material. And what more can you ask for from a book: mistaken identity, assault with deadly effect, a furtive wedding in the reaches of the night, a reluctant widow in a house filled with secret passages, secrets, and people she doesn't even know. In all, a delightful, unlikely, and very amiable mix to while away a few hours of pleasant reading.

I'll let you all know more when I've finished. But I have to hand it Sourcebooks--they're doing a superb job of bringing the Romances and historical novels of Georgette Heyer back into print, and it is most welcome to an audience that has lacked a consistent backcatalog for some time now. I look forward to each month's new offerings.

I just finished it! And, of course, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Dear MamaT,

Always happy to hear from another fan. I'm still enjoying it. (Yes, far more slowly than the material demands--but on the other hand, it is a delight I like to take in small doses in the dismal day. It lightens the tone of everything around me and gives be a breather.)

Thanks for your comment and I'm glad you enjoyed it, seemingly as much as I am enjoying it.
