    Flushed with success from my recent reread of Venetia, I cast caution to the wind and decided to take on another Georgette Heyer Regency novel I should have known I wasn t mentally up for another contrived plot yet Even Heyer s witty writing didn t save this one for me.Deborah Grantham is a 25 year old with decent parentage, but gambling runs in the family and between one thing and another, she s ended up as a faro dealer at a London

    Scrumptious.I can t type it here, the Spoiler Stasi would waterboard me, but Z.O.M.G this entire ending is the outside of enough I pity the fool who doesn t indulge in the occasional Heyer A diet of them would be akin to steamed pudding for breakfast, Queen of Puddings for lunch, and a Pavlova for dinner, but damme how they are like vintage champagne served with an exquisite entremet.

    Update I just reread this April 13 14th 2015 and it is every bit at good as the first time Far fetched and comical, it was just the sort of book I needed It had me laughing several times Georgette Heyer has written silly, spoilt and ridiculous heroines, she has made witty, wize and winsome heroines Deborah Grantham is the best minx of all She is on almost on the shelf and has little chance of making a match Her aunt has a gaming house with a E.O tab

    I ve read this book like most Heyers countless times if I had been rating books then, this one would have been around 3.5 But now I m a lotfond of assertive heroines while both leading characters are very prone to irrational actions, I m looking at the original publication date 1941 If I was a reader in WW2 I certainly would have wanted frothy, fast paced fun, rather than grim reality But just to get an idea of the fantastic sums of money being thrown aroun

    2019 ReviewMax Ravenscar s kidnapping is truly one of my favorite scenes in all of Heyer s works I love the banter between him an Deb the dismissal of her brother the moment he walks back into the house when everyone thinks he is tied up in the basement It is all gold, pure gold 2018 ReviewSo much witty banter Deb certainly represents an older Heyer heroine but she comes across emotional maybe Or perhaps impulsive is a better word, like a younger heroine 2017 ReviewOnce again br 2019 ReviewMax Ravenscar s kidnapping is truly one of my favorite scenes in all of Heyer s works I love the banter between him an Deb the dismissal of her brother the moment he walks back into the house when everyone thinks he is tied up in the basement It is all gold, pure gold 2018 ReviewSo much witty banter Deb certainly represents an older Heyer heroine but she comes across emotional maybe Or perhaps impulsive is a better word, like a younger heroine 2017 ReviewOnce again breaking my rule about not interfering with past ratings to bump this one up a star I really do love Faro s Daughter It would make a hilarious movie Also, Deb 3 Girl has guts In all my previous readings, though, it never occurred to me how quickly everyone falls in love Everything takes place in less than two weeks 2011 ReviewFaro s Daughterisn t one of Heyer spopular books, and I picked it up half expecting it to be a disappointment I was pleasantly surprised When Max Ravenscar discovers his young nephew has fallen in love with a girl from gambling house, he is quite determined to do everything in his power to stop the marriage Surely a bribe ought to workWhat he does not expect is Deborah Grantham Outraged and offended that he would try and bribe her off, Deborah is determined to get revenge, even if that means marrying his youngster of a nephew A very cute, very humorous novel, full of romp and Heyer humor, I quite enjoyed this book It even beats outThese Old Shadesin the three star section Deborah is a great deal like Sophy fromThe Grand Sophyand as that is my favorite Heyer book, it stands to reason I d enjoy this one too It is a highly imporobable story, filled with kidnapping and falling in and out love and rather unsavory characters, but overall completely fun The ending is a little rushed and the hero s falling in love might be a bit fast, but the witty dialogue and ridiculous circumstances the characters find themselves in quite makes up for it A very enjoyable novel My Heyer reccomendations go like this order thenThe Grand SophyFredericaCotillionFaro s DaughterArabellaThese Old Shadesand the Nonesuch

    I love it One of the best Heyer books I couldn t stop reading Fortunately, I could spare time for that So I have read it in one day all day.There wasn t a scene that I don t like You have many situations and brilliant dialogues between characters Both heroes have a spirit, strong personality No ninny And they play together or I should say against each other famously There isn t so typical for Heyer a hero who must rescue a defenceless heroine.What was shocking to me the most t I l

    Read a long, long, loooong time ago review also long overdue, because people tend to ask when I scoff.Georgette Heyer wrote a pretentious, anachronistic, pseudo scientific retcon version of the regency era, concentrated her allegedly so realistic writing on less than 300 people and those few they interacted with within a world spanning empire, obliterated in a fell stroke everything else happening during a time which was one of the most important of industrialisation and science, not to s
