Life is finally looking up for the poor relations. The Prince of Wales’ coat of arms gleams over the hotel entrance. All but one of the rooms are filled by the open-handed Prince Hugo and his entourage. The owners have taken on a new partner, Mr. Jason Davy, a popular actor. Even curmudgeonly Sir Philip hasn’t uttered anything loathsome for days. They have finally reached a position comfortable enough to allow them to consider offers to buy the hotel.
The poor relations’ hard-earned success, however, is in stark contrast to the plight of their latest guest, Lady Jane Fremney. The slight, beautiful youngest daughter of the Earl of Durby has been cast out of her family for refusing to marry the man her father has chosen. Lonely and bankrupt, Lady Jane has decided to commit suicide. But when Miss Tonks uncovers her plans, the poor relations go into action again to try to rescue Lady Jane from suicide, her father, and her intended.
The loveable characters from the Poor Relation Hotel return in this sparkling and adventurous Regency from Marion Chesney.

Glad to be part of the audible community and I hope that my reviews help to choose the right book and share my love of reading.
I truly enjoyed the series. This one just sums it all up and puts a bow on the package. I loved the series in audio form as Davina Porter does a wonderful job. You will get to know the characters so much better thanks to her personal touch.
I did like Sir Philip the best - as he is not the "norm".
She is one of the best :)
No, no extreme reaction - just a lovely wrap up.
The series were well worth the money - I believe I got most of them on sale. You will enjoy listening to these books while traveling, on the way to work, or just a leisure day in the sun.
Relaxing - fun - easy listen - -
predictable, but fun
Davina Porter is a master (mistress) at switching characters and creating personalities - you have to love them all
step back in time to romance
recommend it for fun, fluff, pleasant listen
Fan of mystery & romance -- particularly of historical persuasion!"
Another adorable book in the series by Marion Chesney, and as always, Davina Porter does an amazing job with the narration!
Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Sixth and last installment of the Poor Relation Series. Set in the Regency period.
Another light, entertaining novel. All loose ends are tied up nicely - and Lady Fortescue finally chooses between her swains.
The main story is another transformative one (shy, but titled, depressed rustic ends up a charming, and happily poised Lady).
The narration is, as ever, wonderful.
