Back in Society: A Regency Romance: The Poor Relation, Book 6

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. 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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "All is well that ends well"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Back in Society: A Regency Romance to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I did like Sir Philip the best - as he is not the "norm".


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is one of the best :)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, no extreme reaction - just a lovely wrap up.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Satisfying conclusion to the Series"

    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.
