    These Old Shades

    This is an old favourite, which I revisit every so often. One of the things I enjoy about reading Georgette Heyer's novels is the use of the language of the period. It places you firmly in the era and setting. The use of French gives an authenticity which adds to the story

    Always delightful

    This is a perfect escape into romance, adventure, and great writing! All Georgette Heyer novels are excellent stories and this is one of her best. It is followed by her "Devil's Cub" which makes a perfect conclusion to this story.

    Wonderful!

    This is a great story by a fabulous author. The story takes place in the mid 1700's. Avon and Leonie are wonderful characters whose interactions are sweet, funny, touching and always delightful. The secondary characters are also well developed and add greatly to the tale. These Old Shades and it's sequel Devil's Cub are books that once read, you will find yourself repeatedly going back to for another read. The attention to details of the period, the beautiful writing and the touching romance are so vivid the story transports you to another time and place.

    Georgette at her very best

    Georgette Heyer is a fabulous writer. Enjoy this rollicking romance and wonder that it's never been made into a movie
