"Oh to be as beautiful as Euphemia!" plain Jane Hart sighs when she joins her sister Euphemia at Number 67 Clarges Street for the season. Then Lord Tregarthan might notice her, as she had noticed him and forever lost her heart to the most eligible bachelor of the town. But Euphemia’s fate is to flirt through balls and into the arms of a marquis, while Jane’s is to stay home, amusing herself with snooping into the strange death of Miss Clara Vere-Baxton, a former tenant of Number 67 - until the downstairs staff transforms a plain Miss into the season’s sensation and sends her waltzing dangerously close to the secret of Clara’s demise and into a daring liaison with the lord of her dreams.

As have not read, cannot answer
Such a different turn- from, for instance, the Agatha Raisin series, or the Hamish Mcbeth stories. I feel this is the author's best niche, really. Some of the sex biz with Agatha is awkward and mortifying- as if Beaton felt it necessary to insert, but was not quite comfortable with it. She seems much more at home with this series.
Jane, rightly so
'Upstairs, Downstairs Lite"
These are a delightful rainy day listen. Light, airy and compelling for anyone interested in regency novellas.
