The Toll Gate


Fairly disappointed with The Toll Gate. Although I was exceedingly grateful to find a Heyer heroine who wasn't in her teens and wasn't horribly naive. Still, the love story aspect, while quite sweet, was resolved far too quickly for my satisfaction and I really wasn't interested in the criminal mystery aspect that took up the rest of the narrative so that was a bit of ho hum. No particular vivacity of wit or screamingly funny verbal exchanges either.

Besides Fredricka and The Grand Sophy, this is my favorite. I love the humor in it, and the more mature heroine.
