Bookworm, writer, radio host—I blog about history, fiction, and publishing in the Internet Age. You can find the full blog on my website. This space is for books.
My midway post says it all. Except for the heroine-as-plucky child/hero-as-older, wiser, but jaded father figure—which gets real old real fast in today's world—the book is a delight: Heyer at her witty, engaging best. A mix of mystery and romance almost equal to The Talisman Ring, which has always been one of my favorites. And with a dash of Sir Percy Blakeney, to boot!
