Her books and stories take us to a world, where the heroes are the type we would all love to meet and her heroines are witty and clever. The situations the find themselves in are always entertaining and involve duels, balls, elopement and adventure
Even though I have read and re-read all of her books, they never bore you and you are always left, wishing there were new books to read and discover .
Alas, the greatest of Regency story tellers passed away in 1974 but the discovery of three new short stories by her, featured in this collection books, is a cause for even more delight.
I first read most of these stories many years ago and I enjoyed them just as much on re-reading them. They all show a lightness of touch which isn't always present in the author's novels. In some of the stories the elements of later novels can be traced where Heyer was clearly starting to work out new plots.
My own particular favourites in this collection have always been 'A Husband for Fanny' - in which a widow schemes to find a husband for her beautiful daughter while her daughter has schemes of her own; and 'Hazard' which has a beautifully humorous ending. If you are new to Georgette Heyer then this charming collection would be an ideal introduction. For Heyer fans it will be a must buy.
Just to note: this is a re cover of Pistols fro Two, with three new stories.

The book is as good as any Georgette Heyer (I like them a lot), but I didn't realise that it is a new edition of "Pistols for Two" with three stories added and a new title.Published 7 days ago by Britta Z
Truly awful collation - the stories just start then they are over, no depth at all and not worth £4.99. Very disappointing and only Heyer book I have not enjoyedPublished 1 month ago by Keenreader
I have already bought Pistols for Two and didn't realise this was the same book with three extra stories. It was enjoyable to read the 3 new stories.Published 1 month ago by Sonia Beckford
I loved the stories in this collection, not just the three newly discovered ones, but the old ones too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by P. C. Fenton
