‘I suppose so,’ I said, ‘but I don’t think I plan on doing it again. Too hair-raising. There were people who knew me.’
‘Like that twerp Hautbois?’ Darcy said scathingly.
‘You know Tristram, then?’ ‘I can’t say I actually socialize with him these days. We were at school together. At least, I was a couple of years above him. He snitched to the masters and got me a beating once.’
Ok, I turned to this on the recommendation that it was a light and funny read. And that it is. It is also quite interesting as it is based on the characters of the real Royal Family at the time - which is quite funny and satisfying the history nerd in me in a weird way.
Alas, there hasn't been any spying, yet. I hope it does make an appearance soon and distracts the plot from the developing Darcy farce-y romance.
It's certainly a light and fun read, tho. :D
