Publisher's Summary

Jenny Sutherland is pretty, but the lovely country girl is also vain. Her guardian has decided that a London season is just the thing to give the fair Jenny a sorely deserved set-down. Meanwhile, the handsome Duke of Pelham, owner of 67 Clarges Street, has returned from Europe at last - to find a wife. Used to women doting on him, the Duke turns the ton against the disdainful Jenny who dares to spurn him at her very first London soiree. Alas, he’s fallen in love with the miss he’s just ruined! Now his butler Rainbird has a mischievous plan to get Jenny into the Duke’s arms - and teach this upstairs Lord and Lady a humbling lesson about downstairs servants - and the human heart.

Not as exciting as her other books

What would have made Rainbird's Revenge better?

More twist and turns, along with a fuller story and intrigue.

Would you ever listen to anything by M. C. Beaton again?

I don't know if I would.

What three words best describe Lindy Nettleton’s performance?

Excellent, fun, good character voices.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rainbird's Revenge?

The kissing on the office floor, not appropriate for the day and age.

Any additional comments?

I think I will return it.

I enjoyed the entire series! if you like PBS

if you like PBS period series similar to Upstairs Downstairs you will enjoy these stories. the recurring characters are engaging and keep you coming back for more. I recommend.

Charming end to a favorite series.

I was sad to see the adventures of the servants at 67 Clarges St come to a satisfying end. What a good book and great series by MC Beaton.

good series

I liked this series. though not as much as I liked The Poor Relation series by the same author. I love that she includes historical facts and trivia in her books. The descriptions of the way people dressed, society's weird fads, and the use of period slang also made me give these five stars. The performance got four stars because the woman reads much too slowly and occasionally stumbles over words. She's good though.

cute one

I struggled with the narrator.... but in the end she fit with the style of writting.... slow and steady and enjoyable to see all the threads come together.
