Publisher's Summary

A dead employer’s legacy of 5,000 pounds allows spinster Hannah Pym to resign from housekeeping and find adventure traveling the English countryside by stagecoach. But adventure soon finds Miss Pym in the form of Miss Emily Freemantle, a spoilt violet-eyed beauty fleeing an arranged marriage to a rake she has never met. When the girl’s darkly handsome betrothed boards their stage, Miss Pym is certain Emily was rash to bolt from this aristocratic catch!
And so as soon as the travelers repair to an inn, Miss Pym begins her matchmaking… and although Lord Ranger Harley complains he’ll not marry an ungrateful minx, Miss Pym suspects once she’s marshaled the couple into sharing intimate household chores, all romantic knots will be untangled!

MC Beaton Gives Us a History Lesson...

Marion Chesney a/k/a M.C. Beaton is known for her quick read Hamish MacBeth series as well as Agatha Raisin. While I enjoy the HM series I was in the mood for regency and had no idea that this author was so well versed in the era. This is a history lesson in coach travel at the time. MCB often starts somewhat slow but then the pace picks up and off we go as fast as a flying machine (or traveling coach!). The main character (NOT Emily) is Hanna Pim, a spinster and former housekeeper. You will fall in love with sweet little Hanna and I found myself finishing the series NOT because I cared so much about Emily (it's a romance, we know there will be HEA "Happily Ever After") coming her way but Hanna I wasn't so sure about. This is a little gem hidden in a world of ridiculous harlequin romances. The narration is OUTSTANDING. I cannot say enough about Helen Lisanti and her skill at doing both male and female voices. She really is one in a million. Take the time to enjoy The Traveling Matchmaker books!

cute, if a bit predictable

What other book might you compare Emily Goes to Exeter to and why?

The book reminds me of Alexander McCall Smith's books, with a thoughly "good" main character, smooth rythm of the story, and attention to background.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

To me, the performance seemed consistently irritating - half of the characters sound like whispy toddlers.

Any additional comments?

Overall, a lovely book, especially if you find the narrator tolerable; I am definitely downloading the next book from the series.
