Review: Frederica by Georgette Heyer

frederica1From the back of the book:

One of readers’ favorites, Frederica is full of surprises

When Frederica brings her younger siblings to London determined to secure a brilliant marriage for her beautiful sister, she seeks out their distant cousin the Marquis of Alverstoke. Lovely, competent, and refreshingly straightforward, Frederica makes such a strong impression that to his own amazement, the Marquis agrees to help launch them all into society.

Lord Alverstoke can’t resist wanting to help her

Normally wary of his family, which includes two overbearing sisters and innumerable favor-seekers, Lord Alverstoke does his best to keep his distance. But with his enterprising – and altogether entertaining – country cousins getting into one scrape after another right on his doorstep, before he knows it the Marquis finds himself dangerously embroiled…

This is my favorite Heyer book so far. I love everything about it. There isn’t much to say other than that the humor of Georgette Heyer’s writing draws the reader in and doesn’t let go. Nothing about the book that is contrived. The plot is simplistic and perfect. I can’t wait to read everything else written by Georgette Heyer.
