Summary Ñ Arabella 100 To Arabella Tallant the eldest daughter of a penniless country clergyman the invitation to stay with her London godmother was like the key to heaven for in addition to living in the glamorous city Arabella might even find a suitable husband there Armed with beauty virtue and a benevolent godmother the impetuous but impoverished Arabella embarked on her first London season with her mother's wish in mind snare a rich husband On her way to London Arabella's carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy and socially prominent Robert Beaumaris fate cast her in his path Arabella's only fault i. WOW what an absolutely fantastic read Arabella wasThis Heyer combines all that s best about regency romances starting with a well crafted hero Cause let s face it ladies we all like a swoon worthy book man And I m here to tell you that Robert Beaumaris has got it in spadesHe s charming but not overbearing He s slightly jaded but not an out an out rake he s a bit world weary but not cynical and most important of all he s got a dry sense of humor especially when it comes to his fashion sense in dandelion boutineers and conversations with canine mutts just read the book and you ll see what I mean about the last two He channels a little Mr Darcy a little Captain Wentworth and surprisingly enough to me a little Rory Frost from my favorite book of all time Trade Wind Not many readers are going to understand that last reference at all because these two books have absolutely nothing in common in style content or plotline However one of the best moments in both these books comes when the jaded hero steps up and takes on a problem because he knows it will help the heroine yet cause countless difficulties for himself The best part about this plot device is that no one is surprised then the hero himself that he makes this offer It s as if he can t help himself and it s at that moment he knows his heart is irrevocably lost to the heroine IMELTEVERYTIMEThe heroine Arabella is also a good character She s young and naive but she s not overtly silly and helpless although Heyer overdoes it with all her blushing She cares for defenseless things is willing to fight for what she believes in and plays the older worldly wise Beaumaris with a surprisingly deft hand in the game of love These two you feel will have a very good life together because they bring out the better elements in each other s character In a word they are believableIt goes without saying that this is a clean read but it s not an easy one with all the cant speak and idioms Heyer uses It gives the novel a very authentic voice but it s not always easy for modern readers to follow Heyer was a prodigious researcher and I d be willing to bet there s not many people who have or had a better grasp of Regency England then she did It shows and it makes for a rich and detailed read that goes beyond the romanceUntil a future Heyer read challenges my vote Arabella is now my favorite Heyer romance If another can top it then I m excited to find it since I faced the exuisite uandry of wanting to find out what happened at the end and conversely never wanting it to endWell done Georgette Well done

Summary Ñ Arabella 100 Ome and dedicated bachelor She should know better than to allow herself to be provoked by nonpareil Beau But would her deceitful charade destroy her one chance for true loveBeaumaris however although a most artful matrimonial dodger badly underestimated his seemingly naive adversary When compassionate Arabella rescues such unfortunate creatures as a mistreated chimney sweep and a mixed breed mongrel she foists them upon Beaumaris who finds he rather enjoys the role of rescuer and is soon given the opportunity to prove his worth in the person of Bertram Tallant the also impetuous young brother of Arabell. There was a big joke played on me by the powers above I think because I picked up this novel without having the slightest of clues that this was Heyer s homage to Pride and Prejudice And it wasn t until I was about 70% into the story that I stopped giggling at Beaumaris amusing conversations with the mongrel Ulysses long enough for the d j vu to sink in Wait a tad I have read this before haven t I But by then it was too late I had already been rereading Austen PP in parallel for daysI liked the calm very simple plotline at the start of the book that brought in the small town atmosphere of Austen s plots away from the ton setting that seems like a rule for Regencies I liked how the Tallant family had a we re a clan and we support each other even if one amongst us isn t especially sharp mentality and act like a real family that s not either dysfunctional or comically messed up for the sake of the leading member who then gets to be the sensible head amongst them For Arabella Tallant our heroine is not exactly like thatIt s when the plot moved to London that I started to lose interest at first because of the implausibilities Heyer uses to cause the hero and heroine to meet and later because of the turns towards the silly that the plot took Like when Beaumaris and she meet it s in a circumstance that frankly is way too convenient and so contrived that one is tempted to excuse Beaumaris conviction that the accident was staged outside his door in order for the hopeful chit to ensnare him for a husband Yes in short the man is justified in his belief seeing how the accident s circumstances are too convenient to have been a product of chance and is therefore justified in thinking her a gold digger And she makes things worse by lying that no she isn t one au contraire m sieur it is she the one sought after by fortune hunters I can understand she did it out of pride but it was nonetheless immensurably stupid for she didn t even stop to think she was going to be presented in society so whatever false image she created of herself was bound to explode in her face and besides if she was wounded by such a remark could she not have explained her circumstances and even called the man out on his poor manners That s what Lizzy did with Darcy who wasn t remotely as justified in his prejudiced first assessment of her like Beaumaris was in his of Arabella Instead she has to complicate things by becoming a fraud and it s only because Beaumaris finds it amusing and decides to play the Big Joke of the Decade on the foolish aristocrats and fops of the ton by lending credibility to her lies thus protecting her with his reputation that she s not exposed or ridiculed or humiliated She got off easy if you ask me And her brother as well thanks to Beaumaris acting the chevalier and paying off the boy s gambling debts and rescuing the silly chitI realise this was meant as a comedy but the easy way all is solved the lack of conseuences and his flippant attitude about the situation weren t making a positive impression on me And I m starting to suspect that such immature lassies appear with freuency in Heyer s novels particularly because she seems to repeat the formula of sensible and hot older male silly chit Regency romance plot a time too many I barely read 4 or 5 of her novels and the pattern is already very evidentThe subplot with the stray dog was a funny addition but I am not sure it was enough to compensate for the plot s deficiencies With this novel I came to the conclusion that Heyer s greatest weakness is in characterisation which is shallow in general but is keenly noticeable in her women She also plays fast and loose with plausibility and believability but that doesn t always bother me because by the very nature and style of her writing that is comedic generally the story depends on those twists and turns and coincidences at precise points to work and move forward
