Book Review: Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer


Average rating: 3.87

288 pages

As always, before I state what my opinion of this novel is, this is what the goodreads summary says:

When Max Ravenscar, renowned gamester, and by his own definition, untroubled by a romantic disposition, meets Deborah Grantham, beautiful mistress of her aunt’s gaming house, all his experience of risk and gambles finds him unprepared.

My rating: 4 stars.

My overall thoughts/impressions: I wasn't overly fond of the last Georgette Heyer book I read and so I waited a long time before reading any of her other books. 

WHAT WAS I THINKING? 

I love Heyer's writing style, characters, and plot. This book was laugh-out-loud funny. Something that I actually did and something that resulted in me being the recipient of some strange looks.  

This book is a cute, hilarious read. If you like Austen-type novels, this is for you.

The main characters Deb and Mr. Ravenscar's antics will leave you a few laughs lighter. 

Warning/Side-notes: Nothing bad in this book. This book is perfectly clean. It doesn’t swear at all, and is one that the whole family could read without having any problems.

The Wrap-up: Why did I let that one Georgette Heyer book keep me from reading more from her? Her novels are absolutely hilarious.  A great, cute, fun read.

In Summary: Love all things Austen? You’ll love this book. Give Heyer a shot, you won’t be disappointed.
