The poor relations, those genteel paupers of society who live on little more than their dignity, have banded together and started The Poor Relation hotel, hoping to be bought out by their embarrassed relations - but as the hotel prospered, they began to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Now once more they are in need of funds. To stoop to crime in their days of poverty was one thing, but to turn to it again when they have enjoyed a certain amount of success is quite another. But they all agree: the hotel must go on.
And so poor, faded Miss Tonks has been persuaded to steal something valuable enough from her rich sister to set the poor relations on their feet. They all have their doubts about Miss Tonks’ chances for success, but the shy spinster has more than a few surprises in store. Flirtations and feelings abound amid the conspiring group.

More Regency Fun! Miss Tonks Saves the Day!
Davina Porter is such a gifted narrator. She brings the author's characters to life in a way that I could never envision just reading the printed book.
I know the story revolved primarily around Miss Tonks, but Cassandra, Miss Tonks' niece was a treasure
On occasion I will read the print book of one I've recently listened to and I will actually "hear" Davina Porter's voice in my head narrating the characters.
I swear that I giggled out loud when Miss Tonks attempted to hold up her sister's carriage while disguised as a highwayman.
This series is IMO a hidden treasure. M. C. Beaton does a fabulous job of capturing the essence of Regency England.
