"Graceful and exciting ... the best kind of 'escape' story." - LIBRARY JOURNAL

What seems a marriage of convenience...

When young newlywed Lady Nell Cardross begins to fill her days with fashion and frivolity, the earl has to wonder whether she really did marry him for his money, as his family so helpfully suggests. And now Nell doesn't dare tell him the truth ...

Is getting trickier all the time...

He thought he was marrying for love, but between his concern over his wife's spending sprees, rescuing her impulsive brother from one scrape after another, and attempting to prevent his own half sister from a disastrous elopement, it's no wonder the much#65533;-tried earl can't see where he's gone wrong ...

"Georgette Heyer has done it again ... It's the sheer fun of reading on a highentertainment level. For such an experience, April Lady is tops. It's downright delicious." - CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE

I like all of Georgette Heyer's books because of her witty style. This one was different in that it's about a newlywed couple, except misunderstandings arise and things get completely out of hand. I thought Nell was annoyingly stupid sometimes, but overall, it was a good story. Recommended if you like Georgette Heyer. If you haven't read any of her other ones, read a different one instead.

not one of her better efforts ...it's a bit of a jumble ... the main characters of Nell and Cardross seem to be more like supporting characters in the story

very predictable but still diverting.If you like Jane Austen you will probably like Georgette Heyers' style. However The Toll Gate and A lady of Quality were better than April Lady.
