Heyer love

The Quiet Gentleman The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It seems to be the case that the Georgette Heyer I love the most is the one I'm currently reading. Having said that, I will also state that I found this story just adorable. The experience was enhanced by Cornelius Garrett's fabulous reading. I particularly enjoyed the voices of servants, from the self-important valet, to the provincial grooms, to the mysterious Mr Leek. The character of The Dowager provides much comedy, and is a highlight of Garrett's reading. I did not find the predictability of the story to detract from my enjoyment at all, and found the whole experience to be both enjoyable and satisfying.
