I love Georgette Heyer and like you re-read frequently. I've read all her murder mysteries and they are amazing. Really well crafted. You are in for a treat as you read through these! Val


Val — they are republishing the mysteries and the novels with new covers in larger size paperback formats so I am replacing all my old falling-apart copies.

(And my neighbors are on vacation so I am getting to pick their blueberries!)

Mr. McGregor's Daughter

I'm going to have to read this one. I just finished Heyer's "The Reluctant Widow," the first book of hers that I have read.

I only started reading Georgette Heyer last year after one of my favourite authors (Robin McKinley) recommended her, and I *love* her Regencies. I tried reading one of her mysteries and just couldn't get into it, but I think that's more because I don't read mystery novels, period (I think it's a personality thing. I have trouble getting through non-fiction, too, even though I'm a historian!).

Now, if they made them into episodes, a la Miss Marple, I'd be there in a flash.


Sarah — I'm with you. I love the Regency books. While I enjoyed this mystery, it wasn't enough to make me read more of them. I do read a lot of mysteries but I find I get tired of the same detective and his/her friends, personality quirks etc. So I enjoyed this from the perspepective that it was all new to me.
