Hi, everyone!

I don't know if introductory posts are the thing here, but I thought I'd make one. Hi there, I'm Tracy. I discovered Georgette Heyer's books a couple of years ago, when I mentioned to a friend that I was reading Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series & she told me that I might like Heyer's Regencies if I liked those.

I moved in with my Gran to be a home caretaker for her after she had a stroke over a year and a half ago, & I've relied pretty heavily on my local library (two branches, about 30 & 45 minutes away respectively -- yay for having two that are easy to get to!) to find new reading material. I was so happy to find that they have a lot of Heyer's books! So far I've read all 10 from one library, & I'm working my way through what they have in the other.

The most recent Heyer I've read is Devil's Cub a few weeks ago -- so far, that's been my favorite of the ones I've read. I've read online that it's a sequel to These Old Shades so I really want to find that one & read it. I love the characters!

Could anyone give me their recommendations of what they think are the best Heyers? One of the libraries I go to has 14 of her books that the other one doesn't, so I have lots to choose from & I'm wondering which ones other fans of her work like the best. :)

I'm also a big fan of Victoria Holt/Jean Plaidy/Philippa Carr (all the same person) and Phyllis Whitney, even though their books aren't Regencies. Does anyone here read them, too?
