Publisher's Summary

Followers of the series will notice in this volume some personality changes in the odd assortment of retainers who keep the infamous house at 67 Clarges Street, in London’s Mayfair, at the ready for whatever entrepreneur will rent it as a launching pad into the London social season. This time the renters are an unlikely couple, the Goodenoughs, apparently father and daughter; she a great beauty, he silent and mysterious. Their secrets eventually become known to the downstairs troupe, but the indomitable butler Rainberd rallies the support forces. When Emily Goodenough’s social gaffes and earthy winsomeness capture the ton’s most eligible bachelor, another successful season at the house comes to a close.

The Adventuress

I loved this book and recomend it to all MC Beaton fans. I have purchased all her books and I am going on line to purchase the last book in this series so that I can listen to them one after another when my sister comes to stay.

These are cute

This is my second time around with this series. I appreciated how light, frivolous, and humorous the story was. There is a bit of mystery and intrigue without lengthy angst, which I was glad of. I wish we had more work in this genre from this author, as I've read every single one at least once. And some several times.

A little more controversy in this story, but the ensemble comes together ❤ and everything turns out 👌
I will definitely be continuing this series.

ADORE this Series

This reminds me of the poor relations series. Full of well drawn, eccentric characters. Lots of chuckles and smiles.

Love This Series

In general, I really like reading Marion Chesney/MC Beaton, but this series has been exceptionally enjoyable. I’m looking forward to reading the final book in the series next, and hope it wraps up happily for all the characters. I’ll be sorry to see it end!

Fantastic series

Almost better than the Poor Relations. I love this writer, and am listening to their entire body of work
