A regency novel in the style of Georgette Heyer indeed, the plot itself could be perfectly a GH novel. The writing is nice, the dialogue oftentimes brilliant, and there are some reliable horrible characters to love loathing. But somehow, as in Indiscretion (and unlike Heyer), my emotional involvement with the characters is quite shallow. In all a nice cozy read but also oddly slow. Seems unfair to criticize a book for making me love it but true.

Pg 332 - lovely hommage to Jane Austen!

2.4% ""Not enough naked flesh, Lydia concluded, and too many horses". awww, now this is a good opening line for a traditional regency novel! The rest of the chapter lives up to it. I am going to like Lydia."
