Publisher's Summary

"I do not think I want to be married at all. I want to be rich. Very rich…."
When Henrietta Bascombe opens a confectionary shop in order to turn her pittance of an inheritance into a fortune, her friends are shocked to hear of such a well-bred lady going into trade. The earl of Carrisdown is both drawn to and repelled by her shop-girl status.
Undaunted, Henrietta proceeds to hang out the traditional confectioners' sign of a golden pineapple and soon finds a set of beautiful women in her employ, drawing the attention of Earl of Carrisdown's younger brother and best friend. Distressed by the situation, the Earl makes it his mission to put Henrietta out of business. But he looks forward to tangling with the fiery sweetshop owner more than he's willing to admit.

What disappointed you about At the Sign of the Golden Pineapple?

MC Beaton's cozy mysteries are fun. This one wasn't horrible but I certainly won't bother to listen to it again.


What do you think your next listen will be?

not the next one in this series!
