Cads and misfits
Georgette Heyer writes such wonderful comedy of manners. They are like palate cleansers for the brain! Black Sheep, one of her regency romances, is full of witty banter and doesn't slow down ever. It's quick and fun and generally what I refer to as fluff reading - although Heyer is always the highest form of fluff. It follows an aunt trying to protect her niece from the attentions of a fortune-hunter. The entire story takes place in Bath so the reader gets the wonderful background of the town's society. I give it a 6.
