My new phase: Georgette Heyer - where have you been all my life?

Cotillion Cotillion by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, mostly because it seems to be the next best thing to Jane Austen. It doesn't have the emotional depth of Austen, and many of the characters are one-dimensional, but it's exactly what I needed--an escape book. I love the era, and Heyer is a master of Regency dialogue. I find it hard to believe she lived in a completely different time period. Her writing is fascinating. And the best part? There's like 50 more of her novels to read. Hooray for books that just sweep you up and take you away to a wonderful world!
