Sparkling wit with a Shakespearean twist. Walking home at dawn, quite drunk, Sir Richard Wyndham encounters heiress Penelope Creed climbing out her window. She is running away from a dreaded marriage to her fish-lipped cousin, while Sir Richard himself is contemplating a loveless marriage with a woman his friends have compared to a cold poultice. Sir Richard can't allow her to careen about the countryside unchaperoned, even in the guise of a boy, so he pretends to be her tutor and takes her on a fine adventure. When their stagecoach overturns, they find themselves embroiled with thieves, at the center of a murder investigation, and finally, in love.

Very good! Not much to say about this one, except for the fact that it kept reminding me of Poldark season 1 when Ross first meets Demelza and she's dressed like a boy. :)

This is my favourite Georgette Heyer book that I've read so far. I was laughing the whole time. The main characters are really funny and witty. Read this if you're looking for a light read. I read it in a day.

The story is completely unbelivable but it is laugh out loud funny - who needs plausibility?
