Publisher's Summary

Eliza Budley is a beautiful widow whose husband gambled away his fortune. Lady Fortescue reminds the others that, to be fair, Mrs. Budley has no relatives on whom she can call. Gentle Mrs. Budley thinks she has escaped her fate until Sir Philip comes up with a plan: He has heard that the elderly Marquess of Peterhouse is senile, a widower, extremely rich, and unlikely to remember whether Mrs. Budley is a relative or not. So off Mrs. Budley goes to the bleak castle where the marquess turns out to be not so old, hardly senile, and, in fact, quite handsome.
The loveable characters from the Poor Relation Hotel return in this sparkling and adventurous Regency from Marion Chesney.

good series, but predictable

What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Budley Falls from Grace the most enjoyable?

MC Beaton seriously lacks imagination, Mrs Budley nothing else than all the other folks that join the poor relation. It is a poor relation imaginary book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

get more spicy and more courageous......

Which character – as performed by Davina Poter – was your favorite?

all of them if it weren't for Davina Porter I would have not listened to these series

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

nope it is all so predicatable

Any additional comments?

only get it on sale

Consistant Light Romantic Regency Fare

Third installment of the Poor Relation Series. Set in the Regency period. Some nice period details sprinkled in the novel. This series of novels are light, entertaining reads. Regency without the bodice ripping.

As before the main romance is almost relegated to a subplot as the lives, hopes and dreams of the other characters were explored. Gentle humour, pleasantly entertaining.

The narration is, as ever, stunningly good.
