Publisher's Summary

Arranging a season for an unruly young lady whose habit is to enter drawing rooms by sliding down banisters presents a challenge at best - especially since the hoydenish Mira has a sister of incomparable grace and beauty.

Mira isn’t at all daunted by the local society and its ridiculous marriage mart. Her heart belongs to Lord Charles, who has been the object of her dreams ever since she was a child. But alas, Charles has eyes only for her ever-perfect sister, Drusilla.

Along the sidelines, the Marquess of Grantley enjoys Mira’s jealous antics - although pushing her sister into the fountains has practically ruined her social cachet. It is up to him to restore her to respectability and make her an eligible bride once again. When he succeeds, however, the lovelorn marquess will begin to wish he had left well enough alone.

Predictable but loved it

I have loved all of Marion Chesney's novels. There are characters you root for and others you despise. I like that they are well developed and always a good happy ending. Some times you just need that.

Enjoyable, lighthearted historical romance.

Where does The Dreadful Debutante rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Dreadful Debutante was a light read. The characters were interesting and the dialogue was fun to listen to. A nice audio book to listen to at the end of the day. Nothing heavy or too dramatic or vulgar.

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

Lindy Nettleton does a great job narrating, as always.

Splendid story!

This book was delightful to listen to. The narrator is excellent at portraying all the character's voices, and the story was very entertaining. One of the best !
