Miss Heyer rehashed,
This review is from: April Lady (Paperback)
As far as I can see, no one has mentioned the principal problem with "April Lady": the basic plot is largely a rehash of The Convenient Marriage, with Nell as Horry, Cardross as Rule and Dysart as Pelham.
But the latter, as well as being written first, is a much better book, one of Miss Heyer's finest in fact. And Nell is a drip, which Horry certainly isn't.
Taken by itself on its own merits, of course, "April Lady" is an excellent and entertaining story.
