Frederica by Georgette Heyer, Review

When Frederica brings her younger siblings to London determined to secure a brilliant marriage for her beautiful sister, she seeks out their distant cousin the Marquis of Alverstoke. Lovely, competent, and refreshingly straightforward, Frederica makes such a strong impression that to his own amazement, the Marquis agrees to help launch them all into society.

Frederica is a fun, witty and intelligent read. It reminded me a lot of Pride and Prejudice in that you have so many young girls all intent on making a good match, while the two main characters really have no idea how well-suited they are for each other.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good historical romance. Visit my blog to read my full review.
