Review: The Nonesuch by Georgette Heyer

nonesuchFrom the back of the book:

An Impetuous Flight

Tiffany Wield’s bad behaviour is a serious trial to her chaperone. “On the shelf” at twenty-eight, Ancilla Trent strives to be a calming influence on her tempestuous charge, but then Tiffany runs off to London alone and Ancilla is faced with a devastating scandal.

A Gallant Rescue

Sir Waldo Hawkridge, confirmed bachelor and one of the wealthiest men in London, comes instantly to the aid of the intrepid Ancilla to stop Tiffany’s flight, and in the process discovers that it’s never too late for the first bloom of love.

Another great read from Georgette Heyer. I love Heyer’s voice and style of writing. Her characters a lovely and the situations they find themselves in are hilarious.

In The Nonesuch, Sir Waldo is considered the man to be. Men want to be just like him and women want to marry him. Miss Trent is a companion to a foolish girl who thinks that every man should fall in love with her and no one else. Sir Waldo and Miss Trent fit together perfectly and their relationship evolves at such an understated rate, that even they don’t know it’s happening at first.

The only thing that I have noticed about the books by Georgette Heyer is the lack of interaction between the two main characters. Throughout the book they meet on occasion, but don’t spend a lot of time together. In most modern romances they main couple tends to spend all of their time in each other’s pockets.

the book girl gives The Nonesuch 4/5!
