Governess Abigail Chantry will do anything to save her sister and two dearest friends from destitution, even if it means breaking into an empty mansion in the hope of finding something to sell. Instead of treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham, bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory servants and-with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation-the four young ladies become her "nieces," neatly eliminating the threat of disaster for all concerned!
It's the perfect situation, until Lady Beatrice's dashing and arrogant nephew, Max, Lord Davenham, returns from the Orient-and discovers an impostor running his household.... A romantic entanglement was never the plan for these stubborn, passionate opponents-but falling in love may be as inevitable as the falling of autumn leaves....

Very enjoyable easy listen
Very light, but very enjoyable. Easy entertainment well carried out.
Of course the old lady.
I would probably not take to time to read such a lighthearted book, but it is perfect for entertainment while doing other stuff at the same time.
No, not really.
Yes, while I really enjoyed to book, it could have done without the
Jane Austen citations. Yes, everybody is a big fan of Jane Austen, but the citations did not even fit too well and I felt a bit irritated because it just felt like aiming too high. So I thought the book would have been better of without them.
For the narrator, she did pronounce Phaeton (the carriage) und Gunter's (the London ice shop) differently from all other books I ever heard set in this period, so I could not help but wishing they would have choosen Rosalyn Landor instead. Her male voices were not that good either, but I do not mean to say, the narration was bad, but definitely not as divine as Rosalyn Landor would have been.
