Product Description

Book Description

The sixth and final book in the Regency Romance series, The House for a Season, from the bestselling author M.C Beaton.

About the Author

M C Beaton is the author of the hugely successful Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, both published by Constable & Robinson. She left a full time career in journalism to turn to writing, and now divides her time between a flat in Paris and a village in the Cotswolds very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.

This is the last in the House for a Season series and features the owner of 67 Clarges Street, the Duke of Pelham. Will his unscrupulous agent, Palmer, meet his comeuppance and will the servants led by John Rainbird the butler achieve their aim? Jenny Sutherland, vain and pretty, has already met and disliked the Duke at a country assembly and needs to learn that beauty is not everything. Her aunt, Lady Letitia, brings her to London to stay with a friend in Clarges Street, a few doors away from the Duke. Can both Jenny and Letitia achieve happiness?

In a fitting end to the series, loose ends are tied up and everyone - who is deserving of one - has a happy ending. But it may not be the type of happy ending they were expecting. I enjoyed this fast paced romp and it makes good light reading where the wicked are punished in suitable ways and the relatively good find happiness.

I like the way the characters of the servants are developed in this series. In most Regency romances servants only appear where they are absolutely necessary to the plot but here the servants are an integral part of the series. They are characters in their own right. Tenants come and go but the servants remain constant helping to overcome the house's reputation of foisting bad luck on the tenants.

If you want something a bit different in the way of Regency romances with plenty of humour thrown in then try this series of six books. They are best read in the order in which they are published but can be read as standalone novels. The first one in the series is The Miser of Mayfair: The House for a Season, Book 01 (A House for the Season)

Part of a really good series but also a stand alone book. All of M C Beaton's books are enjoyable from Agatha Raisin and Hamish McBeth to the Regency romances.

Most entertaining. A lot lighter than an Heyer novel but just as atmospheric. Great characters, I really enjoyed it. M.c.Beaton is a great story teller.

I find this series of books so relaxing. By the end of the first paragraph I'm always firmly hooked into the whimsical yet engaging story. The characters are brilliantly portrayed and easily draw me into their world making me forget the irritants of real life.

Not quite sure why I keep reading M C Beaton's hugely enjoyable but entirely predictable confections, from Angela Raisin to Hamish MacBeth, to the Six Sisters. You know exactly what you are getting and as long as you like the occasional light escapist fluff then once again A House for the Seasons fits the bill.
M C Beaton has a formula, she sticks to it, and it works. Even if occasionally I find her writing style a teensy bit irritating. Strangely her period pieces (like this) are slightly less irritating than her modern books.

Good group of characters, I particulary liked Mrs. Freemantle !. Should have read any previous stories about this group of servants first to understand underlying currents. Good, though not deep, storyline, but not as 'grippy' from the author as expected. All in all, an enjoyable novel which all comes good for everyone in the end. Can't ask for more than that, can you.? Will read more in future.

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.
