Heyer, Georgette: Venetia

Georgette Heyer’s Venetia is frequently described as one of the few good Regencies of the rake/innocent variety. I very much enjoyed it, but found that it had less plot than I expected. As I recall, it had some family problems that reminded me of The Grand Sophy, but unlike that book, they aren’t all neatly tied up by the end. This isn’t particularly a flaw, it was just slightly surprising on the first read. Venetia does not appear to be one of the ones recently reprinted, alas.
