Masqueraders von Georgette Heyer
5.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favourites, 15. Juni 2014
Even though the beginning is rather sudden and it takes the reader a while to understand the situation the brother and sister are in it is a story which has everything - some mystery, a lot of different characters and puzzling family connections, unforseen turns and two very different love stories which develop one very fast and the other one nicely over a great lapse of time and even some hints at the historic happenings at that time. In Prudence we meet a wonderful heroine disguised as a man trying to fit into the male world whereas her brother rather likes to take risks and also likes to play with people in his disguise as a woman.

The Toll-Gate von Georgette Heyer

5.0 von 5 Sternen A smuggling story, 11. Juni 2014
This is another of Heyer's stories which is a little "darker" than the others. Starting off a little strange it develops into a mysterious story. Like in "Cousin Kate" the love story develops rather fast but there is always the unsolved riddle of the toll-gate keeper and his son and other strange characters lurking around. This book is hard to put down.
