Publisher's Summary

Alice Lovesey is a poor, mistreated scullery maid whose desperate plea for help miraculously summons Wadham Hall's rakish eighth duke - summons him from the dead! Though caught up in the delights of being newly materialized, the duke promises to return the favor by helping Alice become a lady of quality. But does Alice's heart stand a ghost of a chance now that she has lost it to a restless spirit?

This is no Cinderella.

What did you love best about The Ghost and Lady Alice?

M c Beaton has a knack of creating unique characters and conveying a lot in few words. The plot is tight and the characters are memorable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ghost and Lady Alice?

I like the scene where the ghost first appeared. Alice is dirty and in rags and the detail of the Duke's costume is so beautifully detailed.

Have you listened to any of Charlotte Anne Dore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

When I heard her voice I recognized it, but I'm not sure from where. She is very professional and can voice an array of characters without becoming annoying.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No! It is such a great book. If it was made into a film they would make a mess of it. Maybe a BBC mini-series might handle it.

Any additional comments?

I was a huge fan of the Hamish McBeth series and have nearly every audible book. I wasn't so impressed with the female detective M C Beaton wrote next, but I'm so glad to find that he/she is still writing and if the other books are as good as this one, I'll be listening for awhile to come.

This was a very different type of romance that is for sure. Typical of the author but the story was a little more creative.
