Stylish, witty and historically accurate, novelist Georgette Heyer has been delighting readers with her romantic comedies for eighty-nine years.

The festivities start August first with a review of the newly re-issued Georgette Heyer’s Regency World, by Jennifer Kloester. Don’t be a wet goose. Chase away that fit of the blue-devils by attending this bon ton affair.

A friend once gave me a Georgette Heyer book. I've never read more of them. I'll have to pick up another Heyer. I got distracted by Dorothy L. Sayers and never got back to Heyer. Thanks for the reminder.

My favorite Georgette Heyer novel is Frederica. I can't wait to read a review a day.

Thanks for the mention Vic. I am looking forward to learning more about Heyer and reading all the reviews. Since I give you full credit for enticing me to read Friday's Child I can blame Vic and not Jane Austen for my addition. Thanks, LA
