Publisher's Summary

The next adventure of the Darcy family from the author of Mr. Darcy's Daughters - the story of a reluctant heiress who has been left a widow by Darcy's cousin Christopher.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a husband. So say the friends and family of impoverished widow Octavia Darcy when she unexpectedly inherits a fortune, but she has a different view and looks forward to a new life of independence. Escaping from the efforts of her half brothers and sisters to marry her off, Octavia goes to Yorkshire to find out more about the family she never knew, and while she is there she meets and crosses swords with landowner and politician Sholto Rutherford.
When she returns to London to share a house with the dashing Lady Susan, Octavia, now secure in her new life, becomes caught up in the romantic problems of her niece. Then, the shadow of George Warren, the old nemesis of the Darcy family, falls over her, and she is threatened with the loss of both inheritance and reputation.

So glad I bought it

I had listened to all my Heyer novels many times. I loved Pride and Prejudice. Plus, I have enjoyed every single book narrated by Phylida Nash. I bought four audio books in this series and listened to Mr Darcy's Daughters first. Whilst enjoyable, I did not hurry to read the next one. I am very pleased I started to listen to it in error.
This is a very simple, easy listen. It has a good storyline and keeps you interested in the many characters involved. Even the "nasty" characters don't dampen the spirits too much. Phylida Nash, once again is excellent as narrator.
I am on to the next one now.
