Plain Jane: A Novel of Regency England - Being the Second Volume of A House for the Season

"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.

Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "Good as the first!"

    Enjoyed this as much as the first and hope Audible gets number 3. You can't go wrong with M.C. Beaton. If you like this series you might want to try the Irish Country series by Patrick Taylor.

    "Plain Jane in the cursed season house - Delightful"

    This is the second of a series that is not carried in its entirety by Audible, which is a crying shame. The scenario: a London house with a good address has a bad luck reputation and a terrible landlord. The staff, on the other hand, is top-notch and trying to make it through rough times. When the elder, pretty sister has her first 'season', the cheap parents rent the house and do their best to forget the plain second sister. The staff will see about that.

    "Lovely, mostly. Cinched up rather abruptly, howev"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Plain Jane to be better than the print version?

    As have not read, cannot answer


    If you’ve listened to books by M. C. Beaton before, how does this one compare?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Lindy Nettleton – was your favorite?

    Jane, rightly so


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    'Upstairs, Downstairs Lite"

    Any additional comments?

    These are a delightful rainy day listen. Light, airy and compelling for anyone interested in regency novellas.
