read The Grand Sophy Georgette Heyer ï 3 free download free read Ë eBook or Kindle ePUB ï Georgette Heyer Rbert is in dire financial straits and has fallen foul of a money lender; and the younger children are in desperate need of some fun and freedom and Sophy's arrived just in time to save them all With her inimitable mixture of exuberance and grace Sophy becomes the mainstay of her hilariously bedeviled family as a horsewoman social leader and above all as an ingenious match maker Using her signature unorthodox methods Sophy sets out to solve all of their problems By the time she's done Sophy has commandeered household and Charles's horses but she finds herself increasingly drawn to her eldest cousin Could it be that the Grand Sophy had finally met her match Can she really be falling in love with him and he with her And what of his betrothal to grim Eugen. I think this has surpassed These Old Shades as my favourite of the Heyers that I ve read The hero isn t as much fun as Avon is but the heroine Sophy far surpasses Leonie Sophy is admittedly forward bold and out spoken enough that she could have become as irritating to me as Leonie is but I think Heyer handled Sophy with far skill than she did Leonie no great surprise perhaps since there s a gap of about three decades between the two books and she s instead a very joyful character and great fun to read aboutI think it s also superior to ToS in that like Jane Austen Heyer has realised by this time that her strength lies in writing novels in which well not very much happens at all Whereas ToS is crammed full of kidnaps and mistaken identities and cross dressing long lost noblewomen The Grand Sophy s plot is composed of nothing exciting than a case of the mumps and the resolution of a number of admittedly somewhat tangled marriage plots Its function is really to allow Heyer to write about the marvellous array of wits rakes eccentrics snobs dandies and heroines that populate the pages of her novels and to let her show off the subtle witty dialogue at which she excels Definitely some of the best historical fiction out there whether romantic or not
