Endearing characters but not my favourite Heyer novel,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Quiet Gentleman (Kindle Edition)
I am a great fan of period novels and I usually really enjoy Georgette Heyers work. I found The quiet Gentleman very slow to get going and a little predictable.
The Earls character was appealing and the romance subtle but verging on the dull. All the action happens in the latter part of the book and on reflection the second half was actually not a bad read. The danger is you won't get through the first half To find that out!
Well researched and beautiful use of language, worth a read if you fancy a steady story, but it won't rock your world!
