Upping my rating to a full 4 stars on reread The characters are interesting both the hero Gervase and his love interest are unusual types; there’s lots of witty banter; and the mystery is well not earth shaking but a little subtle than I gave it credit for on my first readGervase Frant returns home in 1816 from the Napoleanic wars to assume his role as the Earl of St Erth Trouble and resentment await him in the form of his imperious stepmother and his spoiled and truculent younger half brother Martin who were rather hoping Gervase would die in the war so that Martin could inherit But do they resent him enough to actually kill him Because some very odd notaccidents are starting to happen to Gervase This is one of Heyer's Regency mysteries with just a little bit of romance mixed in The romance is definitely understated and the villain wasn't too hard to suss out although there was a good stretch in the middle of the book when I was completely confused There were also some slow parts to the story where I was tempted to start skimming But there was enough witty dialogue and humor to carry me through Gervase's stepmother the Dowager is almost the spitting image of Lady Catherine de Bourgh from Pride and Prejudice steamrollering everyone around her and humorous in her vanity and I liked all of the other characters even in his own way the immature and embittered Martin There's a heroine who isn't your typical gorgeous lady Gervase's uiet sarcasm and strength of character grew on me and there's a cute secondary romance that causes heartache for the beleaguered Martin and perhaps for others as well The uiet Gentleman is I’d say one of Georgette Heyer’s lesser lights but worth the time to read if you’re a fan I wouldn’t start with this one though Try Venetia Frederica or maybe The Grand Sophy

The uiet GentlemanN goes from unfriendly to positively murderousOne of Heyer’s most suspenseful Regency romances The uiet Gentleman combines an ingenious mystery plot with her signature witty style and effervescently engaging characters. This is a very different kind of Heyer The hero and heroine are so atypical that I loved them all the for it Let’s face it they are actually typical of real life than the normal heroes and heroines Being a ‘sensible’ sort myself I’ve always had a soft spot for Drusilla – now if only I could find my ‘Gervase’
