Details: Review "Ms. Heyer was astute enough to add one more twist in at the end that made me smile. " ― The Long and Short of It "Well crafted, sometimes with the intricacy of a country dance... " ― Austenprose "This is a delightfully, humorous, historical romance that is similar in nature to Jane Austen reads." ― Eva’s Sanctuary "The language of this book had its own rhythm, one that spoke of an earlier time. It did take me a short while to settle into, but it was never a problem." ― I’m Booking It "The plot circles around many renewed friendships and alliances - it is a "swapping" good time and without a doubt a clever ploy on the theme of love. " ― Aisle B "If you have enjoyed Jane Austen, you really need to discover Georgette Heyer as well." ― The Burton Review "A rich tangle of romantic dilemmas and enough dramatic moments to satisfy. " ― "Georgette Heyer is pure, sparkly, cupcake-iced joy... " ― A Fair Substitute for Heaven "Loads of nonstop comic fun... a treat... " ― Historical Hilarity "Rife with the historical detail that makes Heyer such a pleasure to read..." ― Read All Over Reviews "Heyer is a classic writer and it would be shame to miss such wonderful workmanship." ― Debbie’s Book Bag "If you have read all of Austen and are looking for something new to read in the same vein, I highly recommend Bath Tangle by Georgette Heyer." ― Laura’s Reviews Product Description "Witty, humorous, a well-constructed plot."-Candace Camp, New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly A Delightful Tangle of Affairs... The Earl of Spenborough had always been noted for his eccentricity. Leaving a widow younger than his own daughter Serena was one thing, but leaving his fortune to the trusteeship of the Marquis of Rotherham ? the one man the same daughter had jilted ? was quite another. When Serena and her lovely young stepmother Fanny decide to move to Bath, Serena makes an odd new friend and discovers an old love. Before long, they're all entangled in a clutter of marriage and manners the likes of which even Regency Bath has rarely seen. What Readers Say: "Bath Tangle has all the fun and frolic that has delighted Ms. Heyer's fans for years" "Brilliant character portrayals, witty dialogue, vivid imagery, and smooth pacing...a novel not to be missed!" "Romance, history, nostalgia-who could ask for more? The story is...full of humorous suspense. About the Author Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success. Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

The Funeral Service had been read aloud, in a pretty, reverent voice, by the widow; but the Prayer Book had been closed and laid aside for some time, the silence being broken only by desul
