Lady of Quality by Georgette Heyer

Lady of Quality was Georgette Heyer's last novel and although it's not her best, it is still a cute, fun read. While Heyer continues with her first-rate characters, I hate to admit that the plot seemed a little too "cookie cutter". This is your classic I-hate-you-but-wait-no-I-love-you type stories, but Heyer works it well.

From the start I was engaged - I mean how great is it when you're already giggling at the first page?! The story flows well and moves along nicely. As I mentioned earlier Heyer is wonderful with character development and this novel was no exception - you can't help but fall in love with Annis - yes, she's pretty much perfect, but you can't NOT like her. I didn't quite understand what made her fall in love with Oliver Carleton, but who am I to question love? It seems to me that Annis brought out the best in him, how ever much he drove her to distraction!

So, if you're in the mood for a nice, little tale of independence, friendship and love then I recommend Lady of Quality.
