Publisher's Summary

'Twas a most odd and unsuitable friendship... and very precious indeed!

As the youngest of four unmarried vicar's daughters, Frederica feared her destiny was to die of tedium in the sleepy village of Barton Sub Edge. Her looks deemed "unfortunate", her willful notions damned as "difficult", she never dreamt the arrival of a rake would challenge her fate in the most surprising way.

For Frederica and Lord Granton, the worldly gentleman from the city, had something in common: boredom. And thus a secret friendship was formed. Frederica lived vicariously through his tales of adventure while he found a delightful respite from the simpering females thrown his way.

But when had their summer idyll turned to love? When had a country miss become a breathtaking lady? Worse, what the devil was a certified rogue who was much too old for her going to do about it?

One of my favorite ...

This was one of my favorite M C Beaton reads. It was entertaining and funny, with a few LOL moments. I love Fredericka and Lord Granton as an unlikely couple and would enjoy reading more about them as I can only imagine their life together as surprising and delightful, one episode after another. I enjoy reading and listening to the romance novels but you loose me when the authors resort to profanity or over the top sexual content which seems to break away from creativity, personality, charm , story... imagination.

Another Great Beaton Adventure

These stories by MC Beaton really brighten my otherwise monotonous days. Hearing Lindy Nettleton’s narrative is smile inducing, clever and engaging. I really enjoyed getting to know Harriet and Rupert and appreciate the outcome of circumstances despite the ever present human desire to assume.

Something wrong with the recording?

I have never in my life increased the speed of an audiobook, but this one was SO slow that I had to, which leads me to wonder if there might be a technical problem with the recording? The narrator's performance was fine once it was playing at a proper speed so please disregard the stars for performance.

Light and Enjoyable Read

Author and narrator are good in a comical recency romance.
Story shows that pride can be your undoing.

Entertaining

I had to speed up the reading but I thought the tongue in cheek conversation and story so funny. Sexual tension at the end without the sex. Haha

MC Beating strikes again.

You can always count on MC Beating to weave an interesting tale. Her characters frequently remind me of someone I've known.

wonderful story, great reader!

Of all the Marion Chesney books I have read or listened to, this one takes the cake. I suspect the reader had a lot to do with it, but the story was, to my mind, better, more gracefully realized than any of her others. Great job!
