Hi friends! Come join us in discussing Georgette Heyer’s Black Sheep today! (even if you read it many years ago!)

I’ve recently read Black Sheep for the first time this month (in honor of my Georgette Heyer tradition)! And I thought it would be fun to not only write my usual review (which I will post tomorrow), but also hold a discussion since I know so many of you are Georgette Heyer fans! So here we go!
