    A good diversion

    I love MC beaten, but this is not my favorite of hers. It was fine, but not great. Also, I am not a fan of the narrator.

    With little to live on but her romantic daydreams - which frequently starred the dashing Marquess of Fleetwater - Jean Lindsay lived a rather dismal life with her nasty, drunken uncle. Jean was always the object of ridicule, that is, until news of her unexpected inheritance spread. Suddenly her worn dresses became "quaint" and her forthright manner turned magically to "charming", but to Jean's horror, someone wanted her dead!

    Very long

    Seemed to drag on and on. I like these kinds of stories but the two main characters might be better off without each other.

    The upper class of the social circle regarded Sir Benjamin Wright with utmost honor and respect. Yet Lady Emma knew her husband was in fact a drunken jealous brute who delighted in humiliating her both in and out of the bedroom.

    Somewhat Fun story, but lousy narrator

    Sadly this book has two almost fatal flaws: a heroine you just want to slap for behaving so stupidly and a narrator who always makes the heroines soun..Show More »

    Alice Lovesey is a poor, mistreated scullery maid whose desperate plea for help miraculously summons Wadham Hall's rakish eighth duke - summons him from the dead! Though caught up in the delights of being newly materialized, the duke promises to return the favor by helping Alice become a lady of quality. But does Alice's heart stand a ghost of a chance now that she has lost it to a restless spirit?

    This is no Cinderella.

    M c Beaton has a knack of creating unique characters and conveying a lot in few words. The plot is tight and the characters are memorable.

    "I am Miss Lamberton. Miss Constance Lamberton. I hoped that you would employ me as your companion." So it was that quiet, reserved Constance came to the household of the haughty but beautiful Lady Amelia. She would serve as the lady's chaperone throughout the season's many festivities, finding herself an unwitting accomplice in Lady Amelia's scheme to trap the very eligible Lord Philip into marriage. But it was not Lady Amelia who won Lord Philip's heart. It was the pale, golden-eyed Constance herself.

    I am going to die, Polly thought. The crowd clamored for a speech. Polly raised her hands, and they fell silent. From the foot of the gallows, she asked the spectators why she, a poor woman, should hang for theft, while the abbess of Covent Garden can commit murder on the souls of innocent country girls over and over again and yet go free - and then she condemned them to hell.

    A Dickensian tale with a strong female character.
