April Lady

April Lady

April Lady by Georgette Heyer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Look, even a weaker GH romance is still head & shoulders above romances by other writers, so I have to rate GH’s novels against each other & sadly, although I am very fond of Nell & Giles, this isn’t one of GH’s best works. It was rushed out when GH was in financial difficulty – & I’m afraid it shows. GH has to work hard to sell the plot on this one. One of the many things I love about GH’s writing is that it is so effortless – but this one isn’t.

While my younger self could understand (& even sympathise) with Giles’ spoilt younger sister Letty, the crabby old bat I have become just wanted to shake her – hard.

But, Dysart is one of the better of GH’s irresponsible brother characters & he gets many of the best lines. The ending of this book is right up there with some of GH’s stronger works – I read it three times chuckling every single time!

It’s a good, escapist read.

Enjoy! 🙂
