meilufay’s #CBR4 review #97 Devil’s Cub by Georgette Heyer
As some of you may have noticed, I’ve been rereading Georgette Heyer’s historical romances chronologically. Devil’s Cub is a sequel to These Old Shades (which is one of my all-time favorite of Heyer’s novels) and has as its hero Vidal, the son of Avon and Léonie from the earlier novel. Because the book is set a generation after These Old Shades, it can be read on its own. While this book isn’t my favorite of Heyer’s books, it’s easily in the top ten of her best books. It’s laugh out loud funny, moves along at a smart pace and is peopled by vivid characters. Great fun.
