  1. Whoa! It looks different around here, right? Or am I just hallucinating?

    I'd better get on the ball with Heyer's huge list of books before these come out...

  2. I think it's great that her works are being released.

  3. I've read most Ms. Heyer's romances and have just started reading her mysteries. I just love her and I dig you blog too.
    You take care

  4. I have just discovered your site today. Love it. Do you have a newsletter? I will have to find time to read some of your older posts!

  5. I adore the covers of these reissues! And I love that I will be able to buy them at local bookstores now.

  6. I love the cover of the last one- very art deco! Not as huge a fan of the other ones...

  7. I think I liked the last lot of covers a bit better. I loved them.

  8. I read one Heyer Mystery. The books was good, but I knew the ending! But the writing was good and the humor quotient helped me go till the end! And that era...

  9. I'm a fan of Heyer's. The covers on the reissues are great. I'm reading Arabella now.
