This is one of my favourite Heyer books. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading it.

Sophy descends on her cousins, the Rivenhalls', whilst her father has gone to Brazil. She at once perceives that the home isn't a happy one and sets about to fix everything.

Usually at this point in a historical romance, the heroine would make everything worse, by being too naive and stupid. On the contrary in this one, Sophy lives up to her name, The Grand Sophy.

She brings life and happiness to a house that just feels miserable, of course the monkey helps. She faces down a criminal moneylender to help out Hubert, extricates Cecilia from a moment of madness when she announces in the middle of a ball, she is engaged to a penniless poet and sets up Miss Wraxton and Lord Bromford, two of the more obnoxious characters Heyer has ever written. And of course, she enables Charles to have his own HEA, with herself. LOL.
