Love love loveThis novel was so cute Ah I just want to give it and everyone in it a big hug 3 False Colours seems to be one of those less popular Heyers because I had rarely heard of it knew nothing of what was going to happen and generally did not know what to expect beyond twins switching places and family shenanigans But it was all so much fun What a wonderful rideI just loved the feels of this book so sweet soothing heart warming and gentle all interlaced with Heyer s signature wit and humour The family bonds were so strong and so touching too The Fancots were such a united family wanting the best for each other and trying to out kind the others it was so sweet Every scene was basically Lady Denville Oh my goodness my sons are the best I feel SO sorry for all the other parents out there who can t possibly have sons as awesome as mine Ah I am SO lucky No joke though she really says that at some point Kit Aww I missed you Mama hugs Let me help you with anything I can even though I hate this masuerade of taking Evelyn s place Evelyn Mama hugs Let me settle your debts Let me help you And Kester thank you so much for helping me Lady Denville Oh my sons I love you both EUALLY Let s have some UAILS to celebrate the return of Evelyn Kit Eve it s okay bro I can handle Mama s debts Evelyn No no It s my responsibility Kit No seriously I got this Lady Denville Wait I have a better idea but let s not have uails after all Evelyn Oh oh Mama is wearing her mischievous face again Kit Oh by the way Eve sorry for falling in love with your fianc e I know she s technically yours so Evelyn Oh noooo It s okay You can have her Lady Denville Ah I LOVE MY SONS GROUP HUUUUUGSeriously it s like that the whole time They loved each other so much and they were all so kind Lady Denville seriously stole my heart though she was the sweetest most adorable Mama ever and she was such a crack up Still relatively young she s 43 the widowed Lady Denville is incredibly beautiful has an incredible amount of suitors dangling after her spends an incredible amount of money and has an incredible amount of debts True she is also incredibly silly and she s not terribly bright but also has an incredibly big heart and incredibly engaging manners She s the perfect definition of a lovely pea goose Super cute and impossible to hate And her notions of economy oh my gosh please we must take a moment to appreciate them Spending Your Money Wisely by Amabel Fancot Lady Denville1 The first rule to remember is that if you can pay your interest YOU ARE OKAY Interest paid life is GOOD 2 Economy is so super overrated Did you know that the less you try to spend the you will actually end up spending Think about it If you buy a cheap ugly dress to save money you ll find yourself totally incapable of actually wearing it so you ll end up buying that expensive gown anyways and thus have paid wayyyy than you would have in the first place if you d only stuck to the expensive gown Cheap gown expensive gown expensive than just expensive gown3 Let s also not forget the element of luck here For all you card players and gamesters out there THE LUCK WILL TURN ONE DAY I mean it just has to right It can t stay bad forever4 Okay so if you do actually find yourself indebted at some point and you have nothing to stake be sure to have some copies of all those ugly heirloom brooches and family jewels that you never wear Life savers those I tell you5 And finally well remember some principles of kindness When you already owe a ton of money to your milliner and she s trying to sell you another hat that you really can t afford You buy the hat Because it s only nice to spend at those places where you already owe a ton Like oh yeah sorry I owe you hundreds and hundreds of pounds let me compensate for now by adding another one of your charming creations to my collection ladydenvillelogicThe book is FILLED with her hilarious little comments and notions on spending money and you re just there like oh my goodness she can t be serious but it makes you laugh at the same time because she s just so adorable And her devotion to her sons She would literally die for them if she had to And the best part Her sons so totally feel the same way heck they are at their wits very end trying to find a way out of the enormous mountain of debts without creating a scandal False Colours is a lot comedy of manners and family oriented than romance but I loved Kit and Cressy a lot nonetheless and thought they made a charming couple definitely perfect for each other The story is almost entirely told through Kit s point of view and Cressy only plays a secondary role in the book but she was definitely admirable and everything I saw from her I liked She was bright intelligent wasn t afraid to stand up to people and speak her mind but remained lady like and proper the entire time and never crossed the line of becoming a hoyden I also loved her sense of humour she was always ready to laugh and thought everything a good joke rather than becoming offended at every turn a good thing since the family she got tangled with most definitely loved a good laugh I wish the romance had been a bit developed for it wasn t much beyond we took a few walks in the rose garden and fell in love type of thing but as it wasn t exactly the point of the story and since Cressy wasn t exactly a main character it made sense that it was a simpler less all consuming romance Some parts were a little slow and the overall pace of the book isn t very fast but it made for a charming sunny and appeasing little story and Lady Denville s romance with Sir Bonamy was just icing on the cake Seriously it was the cutest and most hilarious thing ever Will you think me very saucy if I say that never did a knight thoroughly deserve to win his lady than you dear sir No no protested Sir Bonamy much discomposed Nonsense Very obliging of you to say so but no such thing As a matter of fact I m a baronet Such a fun lovely Regency romp set in the country one I whole heartedly recommend to fans of the genre It s completely delightful and loveableGroup read with the Georgette Heyer Fans group for September 2015

A lovely light easy read just like all Georgette Heyer s romances This one stars one of her best male leads in Kit who is half of a pair of identical twins Identical that is in appearance but not apparently in character and charm Her books are still the best Regency romances out there and they are certainly standing the test of time To me they are the literary euivalent of comfort food

False Colours Read & Download ☆ 104 Ence he succeeded in deceiving all present Kit is forced to continued the outrageous masuerade by the tangled affairs of his wayward family his rigid uncle Lord Brumby the surprisingly wily Sir Bonamy Ripple the formidable old Lady Stavely and Evelyn's betrothed Cressy But in the face of Evelyn's continues absence Kit's ingenuity is stretched to the limit And with his superb manners he not only charmed Cressy's formidable grandmother but made Cressy herself wonder if she could love her fiance after all The masuerade sets off a tangled seuence of events that engage Kit's heart far deeply than he'd ever anticipated with his brother's fiancee who might know much about what's going on than she cares to reveal. How can False Colours possibly be considered a romance novel when the main character spends eighty percent of his time with his mother fifteen percent with his valet servants and friends and a pitiful five percent with his belovedI actually enjoyed the first eighty or so pages of this novel but by the time it became abundantly clear that the novel would consist of Kit spending his days with his mother the novel uickly too one a nails on chalkboard feeling It s extremely slow and lacking any sort of propelling force to keep the reader interested in the storyKit s mother Lady Denville reminds me of how Lydia Bennet would act when she was older and had children frivolous racking up debts left and right and always always eye on the prize in this case marriage to someone wealthier The couple in False Colours Kit and Cressy were in reality uite likable but they get so little time together so little play in the novel that the whole point of the story is lostAnd I uickly lost interested in Heyer s novel and wound up skimming the last one hundred pages because I couldn t stand it any longer
