Book Description

At age twenty-three, the petite Lady Margery has already graced the rows of wallflowers for many a season. With the one exception of Charles, the Marquess of Edgecombe, the only man who ever dances with her, Lady Margery will have nothing to do with men; what's more, she does not even particularly like Charles.

Bored beyond words, she firmly decides this to be the end of it all and returns to the comfort of her only love, her home at Chelmswood. But she does not find comfort, not even there. It seems her middle-aged father has taken for himself a dim-witted brat of nineteen to be his bride.

Forced into bankruptcy by his child-bride's lust for luxury, Margery's father determines to sell Chelmswood. But Margery will not hear of it and launches an all-out, military-like campaign to ensnare herself a wealthy husband and save her ancestral family home.

Everything seems to be going according to plan until the unforeseen intervention of Charles sabotages Margery's plan, giving them both a run for their money.

I really wanted to give this book more than 2 stars but there were some major issues with the storyline that I could not enjoy. Our heroine, Margery Quennell, - at age 23, has been through several seasons and has never taken. At long last, her father, the Earl of Chelmswood, is giving her permission to bow out of the Marriage Mart and allow her to rusticate in her country home, a place she loves with all her heart, including the simple life it affords. During this last season, she is unexpectedly sought out by the Marquess of Edgecombe for a dance. She's astounded but they have some enjoyable conversation until she unintentionally hits on a subject that hits a sour note with him. He simply returns her to her seat and never speaks to her again.

After Margery is back at her family home, Chelmswood, her father shows up with his young bride, Desdemona, who is a few years younger than Margery and who is a little witch. In fact, she's a huge pain in the rear and has Margery's 50ish father wrapped around her little "demon" finger. Thankfully, they don't stay very long, but head to London where the earl is manipulated into spending, spending, spending until at last, he has determined he must sell Chelmswood.

This so upsets Margery that she decides she will go back to London for one more season and find herself a husband. This time she has a plan which includes a total makeover in her attire, her hair and her persona, at least until she can "manipulate" some gentleman into marriage. Before long, she's stringing three gents along - all friends of Edgecombe which results in Edgecombe attempting to thwart her at every turn. Some of the "thwarting" is a little humorous, but there's really very little satisfaction in most of the storyline.

Love the period setting and the intrigue. i know what the line the novel will follow and it doesn't disappoint. Her characters are always loveable if predictable. But its the familiarity that I love

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Margery's Intrigue 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Lady Margery is bored with the London season and she finally decides that this will be her last one and instead of finding her husband she'll settle down at home with her aunt - Lady Amelia - as chaperone.

But then her widower father remarries - an empty-headed girl young enough to be his daughter and spends so much money on her that he needs to sell his ancestral home. Margery decides she is not going to just accept the situation and sets about finding herself a rich husband in order to save her childhood home.

This is a fast paced Regency romp with a very determined heroine and an interesting hero. There are many amusing incidents and the characters are well drawn and believable. If you want something light and fluffy to keep you entertained then you could do worse than this - it is a short book and can be read in an evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read 7 May 2015

I really enjoy all of MC Beaton's books. Having gone through all the Hamish Macbeth (on Audible as well!) and Agatha Raisin I decided to start on her Regency and Edwardian novels. Yes, there are quite a few typos but nothing to detract from the storyline. I like a bit of escapism and these books fit the bill.
