Publisher's Summary

She’s capable of many things - including driving him mad.

At the start of their London Season, Philippa Clavering discovers her friend, Susan, is being pursued by the wrong gentleman and decides to turn Susan’s head to a worthier suitor. Not one to shrink from what she views as her duty and gift, Philippa sets plans in motion to bring about the happy ending her friend deserves. What she does not expect is to have Susan’s older brother watching - and criticizing - her every move.

After a respectable number of years on the town, Jack Blythefield is at last contemplating the idea of settling down. What he seeks is a compliant wife to provide him an heir or two and make his home comfortable while he spends his evenings at the club, where a man can get some peace. What he does not need is a termagant who sets his life on end with madcap schemes, which invariably involve his unwilling assistance.

However, when the reputation of Jack’s family is threatened, Philippa is the one he turns to. And as her most determined suitor grows assured of his conquest, Jack must decide if a comfortable and docile wife is truly what he seeks, or if he should throw down the gauntlet of his heart before Philippa closes court.

Philippa Holds Court is the second in the Clavering Chronicles series, after A Fall from Grace, and it is a clean and wholesome Regency romance, written in the traditional style. ♥

Loved it

Really enjoyed this. Good writing, good interaction, interesting characters. Nothing too overdone. Narrator great as usual. A couple subtle mistakes, but she did a fabulous job capturing the light, fun tone.

Philippe holds court

Another great book from this author but it felt a bit rush at the end. I would have liked the romance to be developed more.

Delightful!

4 1/2 stars. Another lovely story written by Jennie Goutet. I think I’ll just go on a marathon of reading through all of her books as they are simply delightful. Philippa stole my heart in the previous book of the series and it was so fun to see her released in all of her charm whether in her family, bond of friendship, or ultimately true love. Jack was initially a mystery but I immediately wanted to know what was under that formal exterior and it was indeed fun to have Philippa storm those walls.

In addition to being a lovely read, this was another perfectly narrated audiobook by Stevie Zimmerman.

Sweet

If a novel with a political theme can be described as 'clean' - this is it. Stevie Zimmerman does a good job as usual.
