I was reading a post about Heyer and a nonfiction book about visiting London as Heyer wrote about it was mentioned in the post. It was by an author of Regency romances. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

There was an article from the Telegraph about walking through Heyer's London, but it's not a) a book or b) written by a Regency author, so it's clearly not what you're looking for. But you might find it interesting:

Could it have been this one?

http://www.georgette-heyer.com/reg_eng.html

Georgette Heyer's Regency London by Theresa Chris

This review says: "This a really interesting book for any Heyer devotees. Chris takes the reader on a couple of walking tours of London and Bath, as well as talking about Brighton. During the tours, the emphasis is on circumstances involving characters from the novels. If you can ignore the few mistakes in names - for example, Augustus Fawnhope from The Grand Sophy is alternatively Endymion Fawnhope (a mix with Endymion Dauntry from Frederica), August Farnhope and then finally himself - then the book is a sheer pleasure."

That sounds like the right sort of thing, but this was a recently published ebook, Kindle only. And I'm pretty sure the author was a fairly well known Regency author.

I just tracked it down, it's Walks Through Regency London by Louise Allen.

And thanks for the article! I'm dreaming about a London trip, though I don't know if I have the ovaries to make it happen...

I almost added the Allen one, but I didn't see anything about Heyer in the description. One of my big regrets is not visiting more specific Regency sites when I visited London. Though I did make it to Bath and the Pump Room and drank the waters.

Hope you make your trip happen!

I originally saw it in a post about Heyer, so I guess I smushed them together. Smile
