Faves and Raves

For those who haven't noticed, I read lots of different genres. My personal favorites have nothing in common other than wonderful writing.

Ms. Heyer invented the modern romance genre. It is a tribute to her genius that her dialogue still sparkles, her characters slip into the story as naturally as family and friends attending a summer party, and her plots move effortlessly toward a satisfactory resolution for all concerned. I've never read a Heyer I did not like. Picking a single favorite is impossible. Of her stories that I have read (I'm hoarding a few) The Nonesuch is one of the top ten. Luckily for me and the rest of her legions of fans, she was very prolific.
