Suprisingly a Georgette Heyer that I didn't love or even liked! The blending of Gothic darkness and light-hearted romance does not work for me, especially at the end when murder, insanity, and suicide are all forgotten over a pleasant game of rubber of piquet. The main characters attempt to be witty and resilient, but they instead come across as oblivious and insensitive. Heyer should have stuck with historical fiction and left the Gothic tales to du Maurier and the Bronte sisters.
