This is the second in a series (would recommend finding "Lady Fortescue Steps Out", which is Book 1) about the fiscally challenged aristocrats who have started a genteel hotel.
Once again finding themselves insolvent, they encourage the very timid Miss Tonks sets out to steal from her scheming, grasping sister.
A thoroughly enjoyable innocuous novel, with some moments of high humour. Definitely will appeal to fans of Regency romances. This is as well researched as Georgette Heyer (although a lighter on substance), with details such as the quandary one experiences with a full chamber pot early in the evening.
It is a cozy, comfort read. Readers might recognise the author under her other pen-name "Marion Chesney".

Would you consider the audio edition of Miss Tonks Turns to Crime to be better than the print version?
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.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I know the story revolved primarily around Miss Tonks, but Cassandra, Miss Tonks' niece was a treasure
What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
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.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I swear that I giggled out loud when Miss Tonks attempted to hold up her sister's carriage while disguised as a highwayman.
Any additional comments?
This series is IMO a hidden treasure. M. C. Beaton does a fabulous job of capturing the essence of Regency England.
