[Read by Davina Porter]

Life is finally looking up for the poor relations. They have finally reached a position comfortable enough to allow them to consider offers to buy the hotel. Their hard-earned success, however, is in stark contrast to the plight of their latest guest, Lady Jane Fremney. The slight, beautiful youngest daughter of the Earl of Durby has been cast out of her family for refusing to marry the man her father has chosen. Lonely and bankrupt, Lady Jane has decided to commit suicide. But when Miss Tonks uncovers her plans, the poor relations go into action again to rescue Lady Jane from suicide, her father, and her intended husband.

About the Author:

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 Publishers Weekly:

Chesney wraps up The Poor Relation series ( Colonel Sandhurst to the Rescue ) with this enjoyable story. Featuring several old series hands--blustery and sarcastic Sir Philip, the still unmarried Miss Tonks and Lady Fortescue, the eccentric hoteliers' concerned mother hen--the story hinges on the group's efforts to help their new guest, young Lady Jane Fremney, after she proves unable to pay her bills and attempts suicide. As in the first five entries in this popular Regency series, the plotting is lushly tangled and rich in romance (Lady Jane, who's run away from home to avoid an arranged marriage, is forced to choose between a stable but boring Englishman and an unpredictable but dashing French count). Though her language sometimes shifts disconcertingly from the formal, even antique ("she preferred to stay wrapped in dull numb misery that would make what she had to do the easier") to the colloquial and modern (one character "put the pistol in his mouth and blew his brains out"), Chesney delivers a pleasurable farewell to a memorable cast of heartwarming characters.
