it was amazing
Read in June, 2012

I love Georgette Heyer. Ever since I splashed out $1.75 for Frederica in the old MacBeans bookstore in Brunswick, her Jane Austen-esque comedies of manners and her impeccable Regency diction has just delighted me. Fluff, yes, but fluff that plays by Regency rules. And Lady of Quality, with calm "older" (28) woman who rescues a goofball young man trying to help his childhood chum (unfortunately a girl) escape the clutches of a well-intentioned effort to marry the two of them off (to each other) and all that ensues -- worries about reputation, the girl's not-quite-so-loathesome uncle, the various fortune hunters with their high collar points and four-in-hand ties... It's just plain fun. So when the airlines said "read", that's what I read.
