Georgette Heyer wrote the same story over and over again. And with some authors that drives me to distraction. With GH, I find it soothing and sweet. Go figure.

I wonder about the significance of bull terriers. Every time GH wants to say something particular about one of her female characters -- I assume that they lack artifice and womanly wiles? -- she announces that they breed bull terriers. I get the impression that this would have spoken volumes to a contemporaneous reader. Someone should write a guide to the nuances of post-war detective fiction. Unless it has already been written.
