The charming Sophia Stanton-Lacy is a force to be reckoned with.
When Sophy is sent to stay with her London relatives, she finds her cousins in quite the tangle.
Cecilia is besotted with an attractive but feather-brained poet, Hubert has fallen foul of a money-lender, and the ruthlessly handsome Charles is engaged to a pedantic bluestocking who seems to bring out the worst in him...
Fortunately, Sophy has arrived just in time to sort them all out - but Charles is eager to rid his family of her meddlesome ways. Has the Grand Sophy finally met her match?

The Grand Sophy
I first started reading Georgette Heyer when I was a teenager in high school. Her books turned me into a deep interest in the Regency period, and history in general. Sometimes I just want a little light reading to occupy some time, and the Heyer stories fit the bill perfectly. I really like reading them in this format, because it’s easier to look up unfamiliar words than having to drag a dictionary around with me.
The Grand Sophy is particularly funny and engaging out of all of Heyer’s novels. It’s not literature, but all the characters are witty and the plot twists come out of nowhere. Reading this book might make you a fan of Georgette Heyer also.
