SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Pistols for Two

Pistols for Two - Georgette Heyer

Pistols for Two is a collection of short stories by Georgette Heyer.  Most, though not all, are romance-oriented, and I believe all are set in her favored Regency period.


This mixture of clandestine elopements, duels, strange inns, and the trials of the road are all what you would expect to find in a Heyer novel, just all very condensed.


They were a light and charming way to spend a Tuesday evening.
