The Nonesuch

Tance at Broom Hall in the West Riding his arrival leads to the most entertaining of ramificatio. Many people couldn t stand Tiffany She s hands down the most nasty female character I ve read in Heyer s universe Maybe because I d been prepared by people s irritation of her I found Tiffany s absolute self absorption and selfishness very entertaining Every scene with her whether it s throwing temper tantrum or merely opening her mouth gave me a good laugh Reading men of uality falling prey to her beauty until they were hit by her nasty temper and came out of the stupor was fun than reading the subdued romance between Sir Waldo and Miss Trent and it didn t help that the misunderstanding between them toward the end seemed a bit forced to me What did irritate me a little was Miss Trent s ever present impulse to feel sorry and to patch things up for this heartless Tiffany With her constant thinking she s just a child you d think Tiffany was a 6 year old instead of a young woman ready for the marriage market That s why it s so satisfying in the end when Miss Trent tried but FAILED to stop Sir Waldo from giving Tiffany a long overdue stern set down But this ending Ugh It s better than Heyer s Black Sheep but not by much It kills me that I ll never know how Tiffany reacted to Sir Waldo s brilliant crushing words With Laurence cheering Sir Waldo on that would ve been such a delicious readTo me the story could ve been tighter More than once I found myself skimming through lengthy thoughts of some minor characters 35 stars

At the age of five and thirty Sir Waldo Hawkridge wealthy handsome eligible illustrious and know. Still timeless a wonderful pick me up on a bad week but not uite a 5 star read for meThere was a part which felt like filler I couldn t uite see what made a top sawyer like Waldo fall for Ancilla so uickly I think a longer time frame would have made their romance convincingAlso I usually find GH s cant self explanatory but would love to know what crim con actually means on page 514 of this edition if I d have had the sense to have taken off my barsI ve read this novel at least 6 times previously don t recollect this it makes no sense to me A typo in this edition maybeWhat I did like Waldo himself his character charm philanthropyLike a couple of her other latter novels most notably the Black Sheep GH is accepting of characters in this case a secondary character being involved in trade rather than useless expensive ornaments view spoiler there is hope in the end that Laurence will become a decent citizen hide spoiler

    ETA Upping my rating to a solid 4 stars on reread The things that bothered me most the first time I read this bothered me less this time around I was able to be amused by Tiffany the spoiled brat not just annoyed It’s pretty funny to see how Sir Waldo and Miss Trent manage herI don't always love Georgette Heyer's heroes and heroines but The Nonesuch has a very likable pair even if their names make me wince the witty intelligent

    Georgette Heyer the lady whose impeccable writing skill wasisstill second to noneI’m torn about rating this one on one hand the main couple was terrific and I loved them to bits but on the other hand this book has THE most annoying character I’ve ever met in Regency novels And I’m talking as someone who have endured Lydia Bennet in Pride Prejudice many times over Lydia doesn’t hold a candle to Miss Tiffany “I’m too bea

    35I feel cheated by the abrupt ending It doesn't even end with the two main characters That being said it surprised me how much I enjoyed this book There is no real plot one could point out The Nonesuch's strength
