When a dastardly Pickleman plot comes to fruition, only Sophronia can save her friends, her school, and all of London...but at what cost? Our proper young heroine puts her training and skills to the test in this highly anticipated conclusion of the rousing, intriguing, and always polished New York Times best-selling Finishing School series!

The story was a bit fast and lacked the detail I have come to love of sophronia. But it was also an excellent conclusion that summed up almost everything.

Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style - with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what - or who - they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train.

If you could sum up Waistcoats & Weaponry in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, captivating, and Perfect

Who was your favorite character and why?

Soap, hands down.

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

I have listened to many and she will always be one of my favorites.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES

Any additional comments?

I love this series, even more so than the parasol protectorate series. This doesnt read like a harlequinn romance but rather like a series. Character development is slow and great and I just love all the characters.
