Charity Girl - Georgette Heyer
And thus, Desford gets to run around the country side looking for Cherry’s father. Yep – that’s the story. Now, this totally sounds like it should be a love story where Desford falls for Cherry, and on first blush, it sure seems like it should be. Except Cherry and Desford are so clearly not suited for each other, you spend the whole book hoping that doesn’t happen.
So this book is going straight to the Bookmooch pile. It’s not terrible, but it’s certainly not good.
Oh, and my edition is from 1970, and the cover is heinous. Like worse than typical examples from the period heinous (and let's face it, the 70s were not the finest hour of book cover art). Sadly, it's not on Bookmooch, and my scanner is currently down, so I can't share the pain.
