I read this in a couple of hours while lying in bed one morning on maternity leave, after I bought a copy in a secondhand bookstore a month or so ago. (The cover of this edition on Goodreads is extremely odd - a young woman in a party mask has absolutely nothing to do with the plot of this book). This is the first one of Heyer's mysteries I've read, and I don't know if it's typical - a cozy mystery including a dash of romance (although a romance I found just a little hard to believe in). It was also a little unusual in that the police don't really solve the mystery, but rely on one of the suspects laying it all out for them in the end, which doesn't really give you the satisfaction of following clues. I liked the bantering between the characters, and it was an enjoyable light mystery for a morning's read.
