    Is Number 67 Clarges Steet the unluckiest house in Mayfair? Every season the beau mondes of the Regency would hire a house in the heart of London’s fashionable West End at disproportionately high rent for often inferior accommodation and yet Number 67 Clarges Street, a town house complete with staff, remains vacant from year to year. Could it be that it is associated with ill luck and even death? Something must be done so that the servants of this house don’t lose their livelihood.

    Love this series!

    "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.

    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 t..Show More »

    Lovely but penniless Harriet Metcalf is horrified when she is named in a nobleman's will as guardian of his two ghastly and snobbish twin daughters. And is the innocent Harriet wily enough to cope with the intricacies of the London Season - or two of its most eligible bachelors, the Marquis of Huntington and Lord Vere? Harriet views them only as suitors for the twins, while the gentlemen see only Harriet's charms. And soon she is falling for one of them. But a cruel betrayal will be her ruin unless the Clarges Street servants can save her honour while she loses her heart!
