One of my favorite Heyer novels. It concerns the lovely (and socially conscious) Arabella, who becomes annoyed when the arrogant Mr. Beaumaris lets slip the fact that he thinks Arabella is angling to marry him for his fortune. Poor-as-a-church-mouse Arabella immediately claims to be the possessor of wealth untold, and shortly thereafter finds herself fighting off fortune-hunting suitors with a barge pole. Heyer's Arabella is more than just a pretty face - she is wildly inventive as well as witty, curious, quick-tempered and altogether delightful; reading this delicious re-issue reminded me of eating my favorite meal (Trout Wulfi at Carabba's, if you're interested, with fresh hot bread, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and some meltingly-sweet tiramisu for dessert). The happy sigh at the end was the common denominator.
