Of course, Deceptions was drowning in bathos, while False Colours is a lighthearted comedy of errors. Evelyn has come into the title Earl of Denville, being the elder. One wonders how they can tell? Kit has been serving in the diplomatic corps, and arrives home unexpectedly just in time to be drafted into service as a stand-in for his brother, to keep Evelyn's engagement to the heiress Cressy Stavely from going south.
And just when she was going to cry off the engagement, she finds a different sort of Evelyn attractive, as well. Surely that would be Venetia or Cotillion. Or An Infamous Army. Or These Old Shades. Their father was an inflexible man, and the wrong husband for the helpless Amabel, unable to love her for what she is. I read one review grousing about her character as a spendthrift, self-indulgent idiot, but if you know history, you recognize Lady Denville.
Heyer even gives you a bit of shorthand, openly comparing her to the incomparable Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Some of the funniest scenes are between Kit and various dazzled followers.
The most loyal and long-lasting is Sir Bonamy Ripple, larger than life in more ways than one. I only had one odd complaint, that being some choppiness. False Colours is heavy on dialog, and much of it is with the servants, especially the valet, Fimber. I'm reading every Georgette Heyer book I can get my hands on. She is simply brilliant in creating her characters, in spinning out sparkling dialogue, and in her astounding knowledge of the period.
I can't get enough of her vocabulary and all those witty turns of phrase. This book is essentially a comedy about mistaken identity, or rather, one handsome twin Kit posing as the missing handsome twin Evelyn -- and that is a man's name in England, pronounced Eve - uh - lyn. The twins' mother -- a gorgeous feather-brained spendthrift widowed named Amabel -- hatches a plan for Kit to masquerade as the missing Evelyn, largely because Evelyn's engagement to Cressida Stavely has the potential to set all things right with the family's finances.
When Evelyn finally shows up, things are in a serious tangle. This is a fun Heyer novel -- very lighthearted. The character of the fluff-brained but beautiful mother is masterfully done. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I read the Grand Sophy and thoroughly enjoyed it.
In reading reviews, False Colours seemed to also be at the top of readers' favorite Heyer books. It did not disappoint. The characters were very well drawn and likeable - each in their own ways; the story was complicated enough to keep you guessing as to how the brothers would get out of the fix they were in. Heyer has become one of my favorite authors - am so glad there are many more of her works to read!
It's impossible for me to choose any one favorite from the many wonderful stories Ms Heyer wrote. Having said that, "False Colors is definitely somewhere near the top for it's great characterizations, witty dialog, and charm. No-one does Regency Romance like Ms Heyer, in my opinion.
No author I've ever read, and that covers a lot of variety , has the ability to bring characters to life, and make them "real" the way she could. The writing flows beautifully, pulling you into the life and times of her characters. The manners and more formal, sometimes even poetic language takes a little time to adjust to, but it is well worth the effort!
False Colours is a Regency romance novel by Georgette Heyer. Set in , it concerns a young man temporarily impersonating his missing twin brother. False Colours has ratings and reviews. Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽ said: This book is about a cute set of identical twins no, wait. Cute and.
Having tried to read a few so-called Recency stories where the author decided to use modern slang and word usage, I've found I much prefer the authenticity of Ms Heyers dialog. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so will only say that if you've never read one of Ms Heyers novels, this is a good one to start with. It gives you a good feel for the language without too much cant, slang of the time , and you also get a perfect introduction to her wit and wonderful sense of humor. If you enjoy "False Colors" half as much as I did, you'll be happy to know, she's written many more novels that are just as good; some are much better!

There are almost no words for it. Kit is fabulous as the much put-upon hero. Cressy is a darling heroine. But Lady Denville and Sir Bonamy completely steal the show. The Dowager comes in close behind them. What a convoluted mess these characters managed to create.
So much so, that I despaired of them ever coming about. This was an inverse of The Parent Trap wherein the twin boys were separated although by simple life circumstances rather than strife and had to be brought together again to correct a very touchy situation. It was a surprisingly romantic book. The attitudes of the characters, especially Lady Denville were so spot on I wonder some times if Heyer had some sort of window back in time through which she observed people in interesting situations and wrote her stories based on them.
But in any case, an amazing book that you should not miss. Very very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers. See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 month ago. Published 2 months ago. Published 3 months ago. Published 4 months ago.
