Well-bred orphan Cristabel Swann tolerates her thankless teaching job - until her uncle dies unexpectedly. Arriving in London to claim her inheritance, Cristabel encounters something else entirely - a loutish naval captain who won all of the old man's property in an evening's gambling, leaving his niece nothing but debt! To his credit, Captain Chase recognizes her desperation and offers her a position as landlady of a boarding house in Kensington.
Cristabel is happy with her new situation and with the female tenants of the house. They are exceedingly well-dressed for working-class girls and have many admirers. Cristabel soon has a beau of her own - the dashing Lord Winstoke, who seems just a tad familiar, both in appearance and in attitude. Of course, Cristabel maintains propriety in every situation. But she cannot understand why the men she meets are so forward. Could it be the company she keeps?

Another great romp
The characters in this book are as always in Barbara's books lovable. Heroine suspiciously naive, alas, but otherwise one can not but love her.
The capture of the eeeeeeeevil villain
She has excellent voice. I do however think that recording studio needs to edit all the books from BM big time. You can hear that Ms. Zimmerman lost her way in book couple of times and re-reads last sentence. This needs to be edited. Even I can do it on my PC, surely for max enjoyment and for sake of Ms. Zimmerman's excellent read it is worth to go through the audio and edit it a bit..
