False Colours turned out to be quite marvellous in terms of the characters. The mother was such a scream! And I loved how our hero reacted to her, mirroring exactly my shock and disbelief and laughter. Always particularly cool when a writer's skilful enough to do that. Great pair, the two of them, with just enough sense to make them admirable and enough humanity to make them likeable and of course that great lively sense of humour that Heyer does so well. All the twists and turns of romantic plot were just too funny and engaged me with gratifying efficacy.
