Day 1150: Snowdrift and Other Stories

Cover for Snowdrift and Other StoriesI keep saying I love Georgette Heyer, so of course when a volume of her short stories appeared on Netgalley, I requested it. Originally, the story collection was released as Pistols for Two, so I’m sure I read it years before but did not remember the stories.

Each of these stories is a romance in miniature. They involve some of Heyer’s hallmarks—cases of mistaken identity, elopements gone wrong, accidental encounters, and a couple of duels. Appealing heroines meet attractive men usually while they are engaged in some mistaken folly.

link to NetgalleyThese are delightful, light stories, perfect for a rainy day and a cup of tea. This is a very short review, but if you like a charming romance laced with humor, you can’t go wrong with Georgette Heyer.

    Sometimes you can say everything you need to say in a short review. 🙂 I love Georgette Heyer too and enjoyed all of the stories in this book.

    I remembered to look for Georgette Heyer last time I was at the library, and we have several! The holidays might be the perfect time to give one a try. 🙂

      I would say that would be perfect! She also wrote some enjoyable mysteries.
