Publisher's Summary

When Amy and Effy Tribble, two charming but impoverished spinster sisters, lose out on a much needed inheritance, they place an advertisement in The Morning Post and hire themselves out as professional chaperones. Vowing to prepare even the most difficult misses for marriage, the Tribble sisters will spend a London season on each client in this delightful Regency series, The School for Manners. Felicity Baronsheath, their first assignment, turns out to be more of a challenge than they could have ever imagined. Not only is Felicity indifferent to the idea of marriage, but she has been permitted to roam free on her father's estates, hunting and carousing like any young lord.

When her neighbor, the Marquess of Ravenswood, agrees to help the Tribbles set up their London town house, he confirms their observation that Felicity is a spoilt brat. And when Felicity insists on remaining unrefined, the Tribbles begin to fear that her season--and their new business venture - will end in disaster.

Ehhhhhhh

I did not enjoy this book. The story itself I may have liked if I read it myself but I just couldnt get past the narrator. I had high hopes becuase I loved The Poor Relations series but I just really couldnt get into this one.

Voiceover was hard to keep listening

Narration was horrible. Very hard to understand so couldn't keep listening.

I couldn't even finish one chapter

Funny, Sweetly Romantic Series

Any additional comments?

Marion Chesney is great at writing historical fiction romances. School of Manners series engages the reader right away with the outrageous characters of Effie & Amy Tribble. This is a lighthearted, easy listen with a good sense of humour, sweet romance and a happy ending. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

Difficult Tutors of difficult Misses

The spinster sisters that are teaching manners and romance don't really seem experienced in either but muddle through. It is hard to like any of the characters but they are interesting. You keep hoping for more redeeming qualities but these seem lacking.

Not one character was likable!

The narrator was mediocre and the story left so much to be desired. I would not recommend purchasing this book
