Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Convenient Marriage

The Convenient Marriage - Georgette Heyer

If a movie adaptation of this novel had ever been made, it would have had to involve Tim Conway and Don Knots.  

 

Nominally a romance, but truly, the book is pure slapstick comedy from start to finish.  Lord Rule was the only character that wasn't ridiculous, and as a hero, this book does him a disadvantage because although events show him in the best possible light, no one with that much intelligence and foresight deserves the lunatic asylum Heyer built around him.

 

I enjoyed the book, but the slapstick is so thick on the page that it wore thin towards the last third and I was happy to see the end.
