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...

cute, if a bit predictable
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.
To me, the performance seemed consistently irritating - half of the characters sound like whispy toddlers.
Overall, a lovely book, especially if you find the narrator tolerable; I am definitely downloading the next book from the series.
