The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer

When Lady Elizabeth Ombersley agrees to act as temporary guardian for her niece Sophy, she has no idea the pandemonium the “good little thing” will unleash across London. Raised in Europe by an indulgent widower father, Sophy Stanton-Lacy is as mischievous and willful as she is intelligent and capable, characteristics not at all en vogue with the well-bred young ladies of Regency England. Sophy quickly turns the Ombersley family on its ear, scandalizing her aunt, infuriating her handsome cousin Charles, and utterly enthralling London’s bachelors with her outrageous—if well-intentioned—meddling into the lives of family and friends. As literary heroines go, the effervescent Sophy is thoroughly memorable and utterly lovable, so adept at getting into scrapes that she will keep readers laughing until the very last page.
