by Georgette Heyer

Published 1953

It had been a while since I picked up a Heyer novel, so I delved into this one quite happily.  I find her stories to be delightfully relaxing, full of frivolous dialogue and drama created from the simplest of misunderstandings.  Her stories are not particularly deep or thought-provoking, but they are most certainly fun.

Cotillion turned out to be a perfect example of her best work.  The characters were very lovable–Freddy swiftly became one of my favorite Heyer characters ever, and Kitty was adorable without being dreadfully annoying.  The story ends with happy endings all around, per usual, making it a 5/5–ideal Heyer froth.
