When Mr. Allison arrives, there is another problem. One to do with her sister, Serena.
Mr. Allison, (annoyingly handsome and kind) fails to propose as expected and leaves abruptly - but invites the confused family to stay at Bassington Hall, his own country home. His kindness to all her family leaves Honoria with no legitimate excuse to escape marriage. Mr. Scribster, his ugly, unpleasant, unfeeling friend, guesses more than she would like and offers Honoria a place to concentrate her dislike and frustration.
Meanwhile, Benedict embarks on an adventure with his rogue of an uncle, Wilbert, to save his childhood friend and neighbour, Genevieve Horton, who has become the unhappy Lady Sumner. By learning some scandalous skills, Benedict hopes to give some options to the most trapped figure in all of polite society - an unhappy wife.
When Benedict's life hangs in the balance, all the major players are changed forever and the tangle of romance is finally resolved.

A real feel-good listen
Any additional comments?
I loved the first book by this writer (Clarissa and the Poor Relations), and this one is just as good. Two very different narrators, but both pinned it. At the beginning I was surprised by the idea of a rude and ugly hero and an overly-timid heroine (I'm used to craggy heroes and redoubtable heroines), but instead, this provided for some fabulous dialogue and great plot twists. The characters are engaging, the story is fun and absorbing and the concluding scene had me laughing out loud. For people like me who have read and listened to every Georgette Heyer novel at least five times, Alicia Cameron's books provide the perfect way to revisit a much-loved world. Can't wait for the next one!

Regency Romance - with plenty of twists & humour
Slow and clever plot development, a few sub plots, and humour that in in one part (chapter 25) was extraordinarily funny.
The plot starts with a couple of misunderstandings, but an elegent enough reason for no one to communicate their concerns, to get the novel going. I really enjoyed the listen and even towards the end I could not see how the main characters were going to acheive their HEA with only three chapters left.
If you liked Clarrissa and the Poor Relations, or if you like Regencies romances with humor and wit, you will not be disappointed at all with this novel. Narrator was very good.

This story is everything pleasant that one could wish for. An excellent story line, marvellous characters, and a lot of light hearted amusement.
It was exceptionally nice to have sisters and a brother ands parents who loved each other so well without the petty jealousies that is so common especially in literature.
The narrator was perfect. One of the most accomplished that I have heard so far.
