These books are called Sorcery and Cecilia, The Grand Tour, and The Mislaid 
Magician.

They are in letter-form (except the second, which is a journal), and this 
works suprisingly well - perhaps because of the Regency language and 
setting. You would expect people to write long letters to each other at that 
time!

There is both humour and strong magic in them, especially the first one. A 
romping good read!

Another "Regency with Magic" book is Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary 
Robinette Kowal. A bit of a romance, but very well written and humorous, 
too.
