Envious Casca (book #53)

Georgette Heyer, 1941.

Not one of her best. Too many cliches: “Paula flushed, and said through her teeth: ‘Gossip already! That’s what we shall have to face!'”.

Like the chocolate mousse reference though:

“‘Leave her alone, Paula,’ ordered Stephen, getting up, and walking over to the sideboard, where some chocolate mousse had been left for him.”
