Well I've gone and bought The Black Moth for my Kindle because it was cheaper than everything else and it got good reviews but now I've read the book club thread I'm thinking I shouldn't start with that one.
Tunip, just bear in mind, it was her first ever novel, written when she was a teenager so isn't representative of her later works. If you hate it, try one of her later novels, before you write her off.
Yes but even a talented 17 year old had a lot to learn. If you make it through The Black Moth then follow it up with These Old Shades. If you don't like it enough to finish please do try a later one anyway.
OH wow, thank you so much. I'm not well so am looking for easy reads that are well written - Heyer sounds right up my street. I'm making a list of your suggestions but I'm tempted to start with Frederica.
Oh yes Frederica is great. Georgette Heyer herself wrote about one of her books (can't remember which) that it would be an ideal light read for someone recovering from 'flu, so hopefully just what you are looking for OP.
Horry, I meant 'not like' The Black Moth not TOS of course
