Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The Honourable Christopher Fancot, on leave from the diplomatic service in the summer of 1817, is startled to find his entrancing but incorrigibly extravagant mother on the brink of financial and social ruin - and more than alarmed to find that his twin, Evelyn, has disappeared without trace. Christopher - Kit - is forced into an outrageous masquerade by the tangled affairs of his wayward family: his rigid uncle, Lord Brumby; the surprisingly wily Sir Bonamy Ripple; the formidable old Lady Stavely and Evelyn's betrothed, Cressy. But in the face of Evelyn's continues absence, Kit's ingenuity is stretched to the limit....

In this typically wonderful and sweeping romance, Georgette Heyer shows all the skill that made her the queen of historical fiction for over 50 years - and won her a huge audience that continues to this day.

Happy days😀

As an old fan of Heyer and one who now has trouble reading due to eyesight issues I have discovered the joy of audible. The performance of False Colours by Callum Hughes is delightful and has me giggling as he brings these charming characters to life so skilfully. I
Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who is needing a pick-me-up!

Not one of my favourites

I have read many of Georgette Heyer’s books and this one has too much meandering dialogue and exposition to keep me engaged with a story which ended and twisted to an obvious ending.
