Jane, come le ricordano continuamente la madre e la sorella Euphemia, è bruttina. E quando arrivano per la Stagione in Clarges Street, nessuno si aspetta che abbia successo. Nessuno però pensava che la servitù di casa l'avrebbe presa in simpatia... I domestici di 67 Clarges Street si trovano di nuovo in miseria e non possono che sperare in una nuova Stagione e in nuovi inquilini. Quando questi finalmente arrivano, il maggiordomo e la sua "famiglia" non possono credere a tanta fortuna perché ci sono ben due ragazze in età da marito, che significa più feste, più ospiti, più mance. Ma dopo poco si accorgono che Jane viene lasciata in disparte dalla madre tirchia e dalla sorella insopportabilmente vanitosa e, quasi per ripicca, la bizzarra famiglia di servitori decide di intervenire. Vogliono trasformare Jane la bruttina in Jane la bellissima...

Another fun read by Marion Chesney aka M. C. Beaton. While it's true that they can be forumlatic, they are always gentle fun. Beaton is one of my go to bedtime reads for just that reason.

Review - The servants in the house at Clarges Street are growing on me more and more, particularly Rainbird. It is difficult to know what to think generally of the tenants of the house because by the time you've got to know them a little, the book is finished. Sometimes I think that these books coul Leggi tutto
This was an entertaining read, no question about it. It definitely had all the elements that I think historical romance writers would love. I'm not a huge reader of historical romance, so there were some issues for me. The writing style is only so-so to my taste. The characters also started to get a Leggi tutto

30yo man seduces 18yo girl while solving murder and convinces her to elope after her mother objects. The servants were super interesting and well written and I’d love to read more about them!
