This story is much better than the first book in the series and the added mystery is the icing on the cake of this romance. The heroine may not be a beauty, but everyone (outside of her nasty mother and sister) seems to agree that she is very "taking" and her sister complains that everyone likes her. Imagine that! Actually being pleasant company! When the mother comments that Lord Tregarthen would never consider marrying such a "plain" girl as Jane, her father says under his breath that at least he'd have a warm and loving wife. You get the idea.... Jane is sweet, worthy and pretty enough. Lord Tregarthen is tall and handsome with golden hair, is very kind to Jane and immediately appreciates her finer qualities. Their romance is satisfying and the mystery they unravel together adds a small element of intrigue to the story.

We also get to know the house staff better and I felt like Chesney had a firmer grip on each of these characters and where she was going with their relationships to each other than she had in the first book. Now they are firmly established as a "family" unit growing in loyalty, humor and comeraderie with each other. These characters are what keep readers buying the next book in the series. Overall a good book recommended to Chesney and Regency fans.

This is the 2nd volume of the House For the Season series. It is very good, but I did not think it was as good as the first volume. The writing remained the same high caliber and the servants' characters were not only consistent, they actually grew some in this book. What put me off a tad was the story itself. Jane specifically seemed to be a walking contradiction. She made the most terrible social blunders but for some reason her Hero never thought bad of her. And personally, I didn't see the ah-ha moment on the Hero's part as being convincing. He just sort of fell into marriage and happened upon a grand passion. Not to mention the single sentence explanation of why he talked like a fop did not exactly make sense to me. I felt like the abovestairs cast were the background characters this time around while the belowstairs cast were the center stage cast. This would not have bothered me except for the fact that this is a Regency Romance and in my opinion the central love story should be exactly that, central. But it was a very good book nonetheless and had me chuckling out loud several times. I adored the cat and I believe Joseph was my favorite character this time around although I have not yet fallen out of love with Rainbird. Highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

MARION CHESNEY IS MOST AMUSING. I WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN CAUGHT WITH THIS TYPE OF BOOK BEFORE, BUT IT'S FUN! AND SHE ALWAYS HAS QUOTES AT THE START OF EACH CHAPTER, USUALLY OBSERVATIONS BY WITS OF THE TIME, AND SOME ARE MOST EDUCATING. ALTOGETHER, NOT WAR AND PEACE, THANK GOD. WHEN I AM DONE WITH ONE OF THESE BOOKS, I MISS THE CHARACTERS. NOT DEEP. I READ ALOT OF DETECTIVE AND DEEP BOOKS. SOMETIMES I JUST WANT TO READ SOMETHING THAT IS FUN. AND THESE MOST CERTAINLY FIT THE BILL.

Old stories written by dead authors, new stories written by authors still alive, can be just as good to read today as they were when written. Reading about Regency England is my favorite time period to enjoy. I picked this story because the author's style of storytelling matches my reading interest level. An easy story for an easy read.

Great author I have almost everyone of her books.

It was good. Typical of what M.C. Beaton writes in these series. I really enjoy the descriptions of the periods. Her characters are always a lot of fun.

Do you like Georgette Heyer's romances? Then you will like these too. I loved the other Beaton series' (Hamish and Agatha) so decided to try these older books being released for Kindle. Ended up buying quite a few of them. Try one for free with Prime and see if you end up buying a bunch too.
not as good as the first book... but.. worth a read... plain younger sis manages to capture rich titled man's attention... beautiful but shallow older sis doesn't...they also solve a mystery along the way... and the servants below stairs have their share of tragic romance... so so read..
