    1. Rating: 3.5* of fiveThe Publisher Says: Finding so young and pretty a girl as Amanda wandering unattended, Sir Gareth Ludlow knows it is his duty as a man of honour to restore her to her family.

    2. What you will discover in Sprig Muslin is a simple, direct and graceful writing; Georgette Heyer once more tells a hilarious story that is a rare treat and a pleasure to read. Perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon, recommended.

    3. 4.5★I enjoyed this charming romance a lot more this time around. I loved that (view spoiler)[ secondary female romantic lead & the main male romance lead were both physically attractive characters who ended up with less attractive partners. (hide spoiler)]I loved Hester's sweetly gentle character & I think the handsome & kind Sir Gareth Ludlow may be one of my favourite GH heroes (yes, I know I have quite a few)There are some funny scenes & the last chapters in that tiny villag [...]

    4. Written July 4, 20154 1/2 Stars - Charming well-made oldie (1956). So much fun and so very well told and narratedSprig Muslin is an "Regency" set in England 1813 written already 1956 by a legend romance author, Georgette Heyer (1902-1974). Awwww this waslly good!This was just my second novel by, for me, a brilliant classic British writer. I has always been a fan by funny and witty (steam-free) romantic oldies (by Austen for example). Ms Heyer gives me exactly that feeling even if this is much ne [...]

    5. Once again I am dipping into my slightly tattered collection of Georgette Heyer romances for a quick reread of an old favourite. This time it is Sprig Muslin which contains one of Heyer's best leading men, Sir Gareth Ludlow. Who wouldn't want to take this man home? He is good looking, charming, well dressed, intelligent, has a great sense of humour, loves children and did I mention he is very, very rich!Characterisation was one of Heyer's greatest skills and she has written some of the best. She [...]

    6. Seven years after losing the love of his life to death, well-admired Corinthian Sir Gareth Ludlow is ready to find a wife. Not for love, mind you. Love isn't likely to strike his heart again, but because it is his duty and responsibility to settle down and produce an heir. Lady Hester Thale is quiet, sensible, a steady friend and long on the shelf at age 29. Surely she will be more then happy to escape her domineering family and settle for placid security with her friend Gareth. But Gareth doesn [...]

    7. A comedic romance set in Regency England that follows the adventures of a mischievous young girl who finds herself in the craziest of situations. I loved the wit that Heyer infuses into her writing and the light hearted atmosphere that she created reminded me of "The Importance of Being Ernest."

    8. This remains one of my very favorite Georgette Heyer romances. Sir Gareth is such a delight as he struggles with Amanda's exploits. Their repartee is fantastic without even hinting that they should end up together (thank heavens, I like Hester so much better than the explosively willful ingénue). And Hester is such an intriguing character as well. Her sly humor buried under her meek exterior has some truly fine moments even early on, before we've gotten to know how intolerable her situation rea [...]

    9. I was not as keen on this one from Georgette Heyer's. I soon got tired of Amanda's facetiousness and immature behaviour. However, the last third of the book was very entertaining and this is why I gave it four stars nonetheless.

    10. 4.5 stars*Beware of spoilers if you don't already know who ends up with whom!* I have the unfortunate habit of reading book reviews before or at the beginning of the book I am reading. Usually with Regency romances that is not a big deal as the couples are always so predictable, but with Sprig Muslin had I not known prior to starting, how it would end, I would have been surprised!The hero of this novel is Sir Gareth Ludlow, and there is no doubt whatsoever about that. He is in all likeliness the [...]

    11. Sprig Muslin draws on a lot of familiar Georgette Heyer character types, but arranges them in a story structure that is elegantly conceived and executed. It is not one of my favorite Heyer novels, but it is a very enjoyable book to read.Sir Gareth Ludlow suffered a tragic loss in his youth, when his fiancée borrowed his carriage and crashed it. Since then he has shown no interest in romance or marriage. He is charming, gentlemanly, but elusive. The story opens with him declaring to his sister h [...]

    12. Sprig Muslin was just OK most of the way through. I can see why this is one of the more obscure Heyer Regencies. The hero and heroine are apart for most of the time, the hero off chasing after a capricious (and annoying) girl, trying to keep her out of trouble. That got a bit old, even though there were entertaining parts of it. I liked it better once the heroine entered the picture again, with not much left in the book. The relationship didn't get much development time!

    13. Another book I am not certain how to rate. In this case, I have no point of reference since this is the only novel I have read by Georgette Heyer. It certainly wouldn't be fair to compare it to a regency era author's books, such as those written by Jane Austen. Just based on overall ratings, this isn't one of Heyer's most popular book and I can now understand why. My biggest obstacle to enjoying the story, was the consistent focus on an annoying character who should have been secondary to the ma [...]

    14. This is the third of Heyer's books with the core premise of gentleman coming across beautiful girl, and putting her in the care of an established female friend (who is not pretty and has been in love with him for years) while he tries to find the proper person to look after the girl (the others being Charity Girl and The Foundling).Sprig Muslin is by far the most successful of this particular plot, primarily because the gentleman and the female friend get to spend a good deal more time with each [...]

    15. Georgette Heyer at her best, what more is there to say? This lively, two-romance, regency romp is so silly and sweet I enjoyed it most in small portions, like dessert. Amanda is a live-wire--young, determined, pretty and scandalously unattended because she’s run away from her doting grandfather hoping to marry her soldier boyfriend. Handsome but with a tragic love history, Sir Gareth runs into Amanda as he is on his way to propose to his old friend Hester, an “on the shelf” woman in her la [...]

    16. I loved Sprig Muslin. It's ridiculous fluff and therefore ridiculously entertaining, and I love the characters and the way everything turns out. Amanda is perfect and ridiculous, which is to say perfectly ridiculous, and poor Sir Gareth has the patience of a saint. The whole tangle of misunderstandings didn't even drive me nuts with vicarious embarrassment, in this case -- it's so deftly handled that it remains funny and light.I prefer The Talisman Ring's plot by a good way, but Heyer's skill as [...]

    17. Every time I review a Heyer novel I feel like I ought to start with a disclaimer: I have long since given up any pretension of reading her novels with any sense of objectivity. I love her characters. I love her dialogue. I love the setting. And frankly, I quite unexpectedly loved Sprig Muslin. This book isn't as highly rated as some of her others so I pushed off finding it. Turns out, it was quite a hidden gem! The story line follows a fairy standard and oft done Heyer trope - noble gentleman fi [...]

    18. This review first appeared on Babblings of a Bookworm: babblingsofabookworm.I first read this years ago, when, as a teen, I gobbled up the works of Georgette Heyer one after another but Sprig Muslin was a book I’d never re-read because it didn’t grab me the first time. I was persuaded that it was worth a re-read and here are my thoughts on it.Sir Gareth Ludlow is considering marriage. This is due to his brother’s death, as without Sir Gareth having children the Ludlow family name will die [...]

    19. Gary tries to help a capable but clueless, lying, runaway teenager. Frustrating first half. Very enjoyable last thirdORY BRIEF:17 year old Amanda runs away from home because her grandfather won’t let her marry Neil. Gary (who is 35) happens to see her at an inn and fears bad things may happen to her traveling alone like that. He is a good Samaritan who wants to keep her safe and return her to her home. She won’t tell him her name, but Gary thinks he could locate Neil if they go to London. Am [...]

    20. A hilarious Regency romance, an absolute riot of laughter.It starts as a quiet and slightly melancholy story. Seven years ago, Sir Gareth’s beloved fiance died. He grieved for her for a long time and didn’t look at any other young woman, but finally he decided to get married. He chooses Lady Hester, not because he loves her but because he holds her in affection and respect. She is shy and well-bred, exactly what he needs in a wife. He travels to her family home in the country to propose to h [...]

    21. And this is another re-read for me that again, has me delighted. I reacquainted with bits that felt the same and then other parts that I appreciated differently this go-around.The story itself dives into the madcap Regency Romp because the mover and shaker at the center of it is a spoiled, naive, willful girl whose only consideration is her end-goal. She wants to marry the 'boy next door' who has gone a-soldiering and she is the daughter of a soldier so she can't abide by her guardian grandfathe [...]

    22. This is not one of the Georgette Heyer novels which I re-discover on a regular basis. While I have read it on more than one occasion in the past, I have never considered it to be one of my favourites. Listening to the novel on audiobook over the past couple of days, I wondered why I've not appreciated it more. Sure, it's rather silly. Sir Gareth Ludlow, handsome, rich and honourable, decides to protect the headstrong and shockingly untruthful teenage girl, Amanda, who has run away from home with [...]

    23. So sweete love story between Lady Hester and Sir Gareth (can it be called love story? I wonder). Entertaining but it's Georgette Heyer, need i say more? Just very annoyed with Amanda and her escapades. This is proof enough, in the hands of a master, a love story don't need to have all those sexual scene to be felt. And the endingry sweet indeed!

    24. Sir Gareth Ludlow is on his way to propose to Lady Hester Theale, a spinster of nearly thirty. He doesn't love her, his heart belongs to his late fiance, but he esteems and respects Hester. Most importantly, he wants to free her from her horrible family. Hester is of the opinion that Gareth's first fiance was a little too headstrong and spoiled for him and he deserves someone better. She secretly holds a tendre for him but isn't sure she can marry without love. Along the way, Sir Gareth discover [...]

    25. My 25th Georgette HeyerSir Gareth decides for practical reasons to marry an old friend, Hester, who is unfashionable and plain, on the shelf at the age of 29. However, he soon meets a young, run-away girl and determines to resolve her problems satisfactorily. Strong-willed, impulsive Amanda who wants to force her grandfather to accept her marriage to Captain Neil. Gareth brings her to Hester which only brings more problems.This was a delightful adventure with many hijinks, two very different in [...]

    26. I loved it! There are lots of reviews already on GR for this novel so I won't try to equal those. I'll just say the character Sir Gareth Ludlow was an ideal hero for the story. Hester I liked very much. The only reason I gave it 4* is because the romance is quite short in it. We meet them both together at the start and then again a few chapters from the end. In between it's all about Amanda, the runaway, and I must admit her tantrums and tears do get a bit wearisome at times. However, when they [...]

    27. As always, with Georgette Heyer, Sprig Muslin is well written, witty and charming.This book isn't one of my favourites, and I probably did it a disservice reading it as soon as I'd finished The Corinthinan.Both books are a little similar in that both heroines are young runaways. But whereas I loved all the characters in the Corinthian, that wasn't so with Sprig Muslin. In fact I found Amanda tedious and irritating.Nevertheless, it was still a good read for those who love Regency England.

    28. I love Georgette Heyer! Her sentences flow so beautifully--I just savor them as I read. She ties her plots up just as beautifully and with so much humor. I never get tired of reading her books! After rereading one or more of them, I find that some of the Regency vernacular starts creeping into my speech, causing people to give me odd looks. I don't care--if they don't understand what I mean it is their own fault for not reading Georgette Heyer!

    29. I sincerely hated everything about this book, the furiously annoying narrator included. Is this trying to be a Jane Austen book? If so, that's just shameful.

    30. This was a lovely surprise. After my most recent reading of Pride and Prejudice, I was longing for more so searched “ comedy of manners”. This popped up so I decided to read it. I am surprised I never heard of Georgette Heyer (pronounced hair) before. Apparently, she is responsible for creating the Regency Romance genre. This one was written in the 1950’s. It seemed like a cross between Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde. There were the expected rules of decorum, with the addition of mistaken ide [...]
