Owing to an unfortunate wager made by Sir Philip, the poor relations are once again scrounging around for a plan for solvency. This time it is Colonel Sandhurst to the rescue. After happening on Sir Randolph’s lovely daughter Frederica, who is running away to escape an awful marriage to Lord Bewley, the Colonel devises a plan to force Sir Randolph to settle his bill for six month’s stay and to save Frederica from her fate. The clever plan is thwarted when Lord Bewley shows up at the drop point instead of Sir Randolph. The poor relations must make a deal with Lord Bewley in order to get their money and stay out of jail, an arrangement that turns cases of mistaken identity into cases of romance.
The loveable characters from the Poor Relation Hotel return in this sparkling and adventurous Regency from Marion Chesney.

I thoroughly enjoyed the series. The stories are fun and the reader is exceptional. Lots of little plot twists and turns, turns of phrase, interesting characters and improbable romances. Just fun, mine candy.
I have now read the fifth book out of the 6-part series and am looking forward to the 6th with mixed emotions. On one hand I look forward to finding out how Ms Beaton ends the series, however sad that now this run is over.
I recommend these books to someone who enjoys light regency romantic stories, with a sense of humour. These are well-written with interesting historic details and a flavour of what it might be like to have lived in those times.
The narrator is out-standing.
