Publisher's Summary

A dead employer's legacy of 5,000 pounds allows spinster Hannah Pym to resign from housekeeping and find adventure travelling the English countryside by stagecoach. But adventure soon finds Miss Pym in the form of Miss Emily Freemantle, a spoilt violet-eyed beauty fleeing an arranged marriage to a rake she has never met.

When the girl's darkly handsome betrothed boards their stage, Miss Pym is certain Emily was rash to bolt from this aristocratic catch! And so as soon as the travellers repair to an inn, Miss Pym begins her matchmaking.... And although Lord Ranger Harley complains he'll not marry an ungrateful minx, Miss Pym suspects once she's marshalled the couple into sharing intimate household chores, all romantic knots will be untangled.

M. C. Beaton is the author of the best-selling Agatha Raisin series. She has also written several Regency romance series. She lives between Paris and the Cotswolds.

Different!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book was ok. I nearly gave up on it after the first few chapters but thought I'd persevere as it is only a short book. It turned out to be quite good in the end. There are a lot more books in this series, I may try another in the future. It was quite amusing and I think it would probably make a good Sunday evening television series!

What about Collen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

The main reason I chose this book is because I have listened to so many other books read by this narrator and I think she is an excellent narrator. (See Milly Johnson books - Excellent!!)
