    A fun tangle

    The characters in Heyer's Bath Tangle aren't always loveable. They make mistakes, and do some things that are less than considerate where the emotions of others are concerned. However, these things just make the book all the more fun to read. Serena Carlow, the main character, is anything BUT serene. Ivo Barrasford, the man she jilted just before their wedding years before,has a reputation for being a difficult man, and scares virtually everyone else in the book except for Serena. In fact, whenever the two are in the same room they inevitably start to argue. Several other characters believe it's a sign of how much the two don't suit; readers, of course, figure out early on that it means the exact opposite! How they get from formerly engaged friends of the family back to almost married, is, naturally, a fun read. The secondary characters are wonderful, the plot twists amusing--I laughed out loud several times toward the end. Highly recommended to fans of both Heyer and Austen.

    Every couple of years I re-read the Georgette Heyer regency novels - all of them. Bath Tangle is charming escapism with well drawn characters and story line.

    Sweet Read

    Imagine breaking your engagement with a man you thought was too stubborn and then finding him as your "trustee" after your father's death. What could be worse? How about your cousin getting your home?

    Georgette Heyer first wrote this story in 1955 and Sourcebooks is republishing it. I've read her work before in the mystery genre, but this was my first romance I've read by her. She does an wonderful job with romances, also.

    Ms. Heyer is excellent at creating well thought out plots and capturing your attention right at the beginning of her stories. Her main character, Serene, is a head-strong, independent woman, who doesn't care what people think of her riding hunters or taking walks unchaperoned. Her stepmother is much more meek and mild and is scandalized by her behavior. These two dissimilar women are forced to live together in the era of the early 1800's. Ms. Heyer does an excellent job of showing how they drove each other nuts because they dealt with things differently.

    This author always makes her characters' relationships complex and full of moral conundrums. No one simply falls in love and marries. They have to overcome hardships, work their way through social customs, and sometimes admit they have made a mistake.

    This story was great fun to read because everyone got engaged to the wrong person. This would really make a good play. It's a comedy of errors, full of proud characters that are determined to live life their own way, and it turns out to be a house of cards.

    The cards really start falling about three quarters through the story and I couldn't wait to see just how she ended this. I felt like I knew her characters well enough to know who should be matched with whom, but I had no idea how she was going to make it work. Ms. Heyer was astute enough to add one more twist in at the end that made me smile.

    The author uses a lot of words in her stories and they bog me down a bit in my reading. However, her stories are always attractive enough I keep reading and really enjoy what she does. After all, in the time of the Regency era, things didn't move very swiftly.

    The best part is that Sourcebooks is reprinting all her books, so you have even more opportunities to read her tales. They are well worth the read.

    A MERRY MIX-UP

    Love, break-ups, and unfortunate engagements are ingredients in this fun read by the delightful Georgette Heyer. If you enjoy Jane Austen and comedies of errors this is the book for you.
