Arabella
Arabella | Georgette Heyer
Celebrate the 80th birthday of Regency Romance with great books from Sourcebooks Casablanca! Georgette Heyer had a handful of unforgettable heroines, of which Arabella is one of the most engaging. Daughter of a modest country clergyman, Arabella Tallant is on her way to London when her carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy Mr. Robert Beaumaris. Her pride stung when she overhears a remark of her host's, Arabella pretends to be an heiress, a pretense that deeply amuses the jaded Beau. To counter her white lie, Beaumaris launches her into high society and thereby subjects her to all kinds of fortune hunters and other embarrassments. When compassionate Arabella rescues such unfortunate creatures as a mistreated chimney sweep and a mixed-breed mongrel, she foists them upon Beaumaris, who finds he rather enjoys the role of rescuer and is soon given the opportunity to prove his worth in the person of Arabella's impetuous young brother... PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER: "Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit." Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC "Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen." Publishers Weekly "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." Katie Fforde

I pretty much always find time to read a Heyer when I'm on vacation - lighthearted, happy, and delightful. This one was just as adorable and fun as expected.

My last day in the Finger Lakes, and the only day that it wasn‘t too hot to sit outside. Starting Book Five from my #MakeMeReadIt list.

This was my favourite so far of my Hoopla audible books. Arabella is a minister‘s daughter who finds herself masquerading as a wealthy heiress during her London season. This one is so funny and has one of my favourite male suitors. There‘s a very cute puppy 🐶 rescue. 👍👍#romantsy

Moray_Reads I love the chats Beaumaris has with the dog 😂 14mo
Dragon Thanks @Moray_Reads it makes Beaumaris so much more human. 🐶 14mo

I couldn‘t quite capture how big and red the setting sun looked. Still listening to Arabella, it‘s so good! Sweet, funny and English.

UnidragonFrag That looks like my sky right now 🙄 14mo
Dragon Thanks @UnidragonFrag it‘s kind of a spooky sky. Hope we get some rain in the fire zones soon. 🐉 14mo
UnidragonFrag It's been irritating my eyes/ throat all week. I have no access to AC so work & home I've got the windows open. I hope it rains soon too and gets all the fires out! (Or at least settle the smoke) 14mo

Dragon Thanks @UnidragonFrag I‘m lucky at work there‘s air conditioning. Not at home though. We definitely need some fresh air ! 14mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! I‘m sure it was incredible to view 14mo
Hooked_on_books The moon has been quite orange, too. But the smoke is killing my sinuses. 14mo
jmofo Ick. It‘s not quite that bad in the part of Colorado where I live. It‘s an interesting thing the light did around the edges...like bending or interference of the light or it‘s almost like we can see the corona... 14mo
Dragon Thanks @Cinfhen the smoke does make the sun rise and sun sets very red and spooky. 14mo
Dragon Thanks @Hooked_on_books the smoke is very hard on sinuses and eyes. 🐉 14mo
Dragon Thanks @jmofo that‘s an excellent description. I hope the winds change and the rain comes soon. 🤞🐉 14mo

Georgette Heyer is definitely who I turn to when I want a happy book. I‘ve read all 66 of her books a gazillion times, and they‘re the perfect light, funny thing when I‘m having a bad day! (If you‘re not familiar with her, she basically invented Regency romances. But hers are not bodice rippers - More Jane Austen-esque.) #2018bookbinge

One of my favorite Heyers. Maybe because of the dog. 💕

Currently listening to the audiobook - excellent narration by Phyllida Nash.

Heyer first edition covers are so fun.
