When impoverished sisters Amy and Effy Tribble lose out on a much needed inheritance, they place an advertisement in the Morning Post and hire themselves out as professional chaperons, vowing to prepare even the most difficult misses for marriage. Felicity Baronsheath, their first assignment, turns out to be more of a challenge than they could have imagined. Not only is Felicity indifferent to the idea of marriage but she has been permitted to roam free on her father's estates, hunting and carousing like any young lord. And when Felicity insists on remaining unrefined, the Tribbles begin to fear that her season -- and their new business venture -- will end in disaster.

M. C. Beaton has won international acclaim for her bestselling Hamish Macbeth mysteries and the Agatha Raisin mystery series. She is also the author of more than one hundred romance titles and a series of romantic suspense novels, the Edwardian Mystery series. Born in Scotland, she now divides her time between Paris and the English Cotswolds.From Library Journal:
Chesney, author of the series "The Six Sisters" and "A House for the Season" has created a terrific idea for her latest Regency series, "The School for Manners." The Misses Tribble, Amy and Effie, spinsters of a certain age, have lived for years on expectations of a great inheritance. When this fails to materialize, they are truly destitute. Desperate, they advertise that they will refine wild and unruly daughters, present them, and see them safely wed. This first volume concerns Lady Felicity Vane and the Marquess of Ravenswood in a love-hate courtship. The Tribbles are charmers and much more fun than their charges. Very highly recommended.
