Quite light, even for Heyer, and with only a slightly-developed romance, but a lot of fun nonetheless. There were plenty of textbook Heyer elements here: a bit of farce, numerous meddling relatives, awful marriage arrangements, someone cross-dressing, a sunny heroine and a sardonic hero, and, oh yes, a dead body. I quite liked Pen, who spun terrific lies and could come up with dashingly romantic adventures at the drop of a hat, and I also quite liked Richard, who unruffledly went along with the madness. In spite of the age difference and their quick jump to love, I thought they were well-suited for each other: both were often considered by other characters as selfish, but mostly, they were independent-minded and autonomy-oriented in a way that still allowed them to cooperate with one another splendidly.
