This 4th Book in "The Traveling Matchmaker" series is one of the best. The 1st Book was my favorite until now.

I often found myself smiling at the length Miss Hannah Pym will go in her matchmaking. In Beatrice Goes to Brighton, she becomes the target of a ruthless man determined to force Hannah's new friend to marry him, and is nearly killed. Miss Pym gets a big surprise about her "Footman".

A thoroughly enjoyable read by a great narrator.

Miss Pym does not disappoint

What made the experience of listening to Beatrice Goes to Brighton the most enjoyable?

I thought the tale might become too predictable but a couple of twists and turns kept me hooked. I like Miss Pym's adventurous spirit and her ability to make friends no matter what social class.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miss Pym because I could easily see myself in her shoes.

What about Helen Lisanti’s performance did you like?

She seems to have that upper class royalty in her voice.

Another adventure, another town, another coach
