I can admit when I am wrong. I finally finished this one and enjoyed it. I am so very glad that Sophy doesn't live in my house. This one was much more enjoyable than The Quiet Gentleman. I will say, though, that it bothered me a little bit that the main romance occurred between two first cousins. Happy might they be, it was still a little weird. I will have to endeavor to read more of Ms. Heyer's books. I think I am getting used to the exclamation points.
