Venetia - Georgette Heyer

This whole chapter (17) struck me as implausible and unnatural.  Not so much in what the characters were saying, but how they were saying it.


Was Heyer trying to copy Austen's speeches?  If so, she failed badly.  These lack clarity and get muddled for being far too long.
