Publisher's Summary

Jane Fortune causes a stir when she arrives in the small community of Dingleford. She has bought an old cottage and plans to open a tea room. Old friends Charles Weatherby and Harold Prestcott both fall for the newcomer, but her behaviour seems to vary wildly - she encourages first one then the other and at other times barely recognises them. Is there more to the fair Miss Fortune than meets the eye?
Never before recorded as an audiobook, this charming story was originally written in the 1930s, when it was thought to be too old-fashioned to appeal to the modern market.

A Humorous Look at 1930s English Village Life

This is the second D E Stevenson that I have never read, but have discovered on audio. It is an almost P G Woodhouse type book. It has hapless young men, mistaken identities and one very nasty woman who is thoroughly thwarted. There are some very funny character summations by other characters, and the book pokes fun at a lot of English village "types". It is not a big book. It is a rather frothy book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Charming addition to the D.E. Stevenson collection

I was delighted to find this little story- a gently wry and humorous tale of twin sisters and their confused beaus from the pen of the talented Dorothy Emily Stevenson.
