The absentee house’s owner has decided to return for the season. He’s looking for a wife, but has spent way too much time fending off all the wrong sort who are just attracted to his wealth and title.
Jenny Sutherland is a beautiful and spoiled country girl who expects every man in everywhere to fall for her without her doing much but being beautiful.
And so they meet in London, and there are the usual misunderstandings. Which will be sorted out by the staff at 67 Clarges Street, led by our favorite butler Rainbird.
This is the last book in the House for the Season series, and it was an excellent capper. Between these books, the Poor Relations, and Hamish Macbeth, Beaton may be one of my favorite writers.
