I have loved Georgette Heyer since I read my first book at about 13 years. And I have read them all. And have been very happy to buy each and every one Audible releases, check regularly for new ones. Nonesuch is one of my favorites, with great characters and hilarious situations. Recommend to anyone who enjoys Heyer.

Simple pleasure

I simply enjoyed the story! I am most grateful to Eve Matheson, who does not over-play the parts, as I felt was done in the Reluctant Widow. Matheson gets the wit and irony just perfect.

In the story, two admirable and intelligent lovers get star-crossed and find their way again through their own decency and common sense as well as the the help and hindrence of various other characters. And a separate scene between Tiffy and Lawrence -- shallow and self-centered throughout -- is worth reading for. I found myself laughing as Heyer continued to reveal new levels of their self-centerededness.

In any audio book, I want an author and a narrator who develop characters that I increasingly grow to like or at least understand. For a love story, this was great.
