Perfecting Fiona: The School for Manners, Volume 2

When Fiona Macleod is sent by her guardian aunt and uncle to spend a London season with the Tribble sisters, it is something of a last resort. At nineteen, Fiona is a beautiful and wealthy Scottish heiress, yet for some mysterious reason, her several proposals of marriage over the past few years have all fallen through at the last moment. Amy and Effy Tribble, professional chaperones whose School for Manners has recently made them the talk of fashionable London society, are always short of cash and gladly take on Fiona as a new client.

Publisher's Summary

When Fiona Macleod is sent by her guardian aunt and uncle to spend a London season with the Tribble sisters, it is something of a last resort. At nineteen, Fiona is a beautiful and wealthy Scottish heiress, yet for some mysterious reason, her several proposals of marriage over the past few years have all fallen through at the last moment.

Amy and Effy Tribble, professional chaperones whose School for Manners has recently made them the talk of fashionable London society, are always short of cash and gladly take on Fiona as a new client. They promise to reform the girl, train her in proper comportment and the feminine arts, and can guarantee a mutually profitable marriage by the end of the season, taking Fiona off her guardians' hands forever. But when Fiona arrives at the Tribble sisters' shabbily genteel London townhouse, she shocks them by behaving perfectly. They are thoroughly puzzled by their seemingly demure new client, until they take Fiona to her first ball, and realize that their charge is an incorrigible flirt.

Face to face with Lord Peter Havard, the season's most unattainable rake, Fiona loses her composure, betraying her real feelings - and the Tribbles are forced to confront the truth about her past. It may be too late to salvage Fiona's reputation, but the Tribbles - who have never claimed to be perfect - must also consider their own reputations in this delightful Regency.

    "Disappointing Sequel"
    What disappointed you about Perfecting Fiona?

    Messy character development, the sisters were fun and believable in the first book of this series. In this book they come across as crude. The other characters were flat. They never really came to life.


    Has Perfecting Fiona turned you off from other books in this genre?

    M.C. Beaton is both a fun listen or read. I doubt that I will continue this series as an audiobook.
    I will continue listening to this genre


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

    Anne Flosnik is a wonderful performer. I have found some of my favorite books by searching her name.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Excellent narrator
