This review is from: Emily Goes to Exeter (Travelling Matchmaker 1) (Paperback)
Hannah Pym has worked her way up to the top of the servants pile, making it as Housekeeper to Mr Clarence. When her employer dies Hannah is shocked and delighted that he has left to her the remarkable sum of £5,000! What to do with such riches? Hannah decides to set out on adventure by boarding the Exeter Fly, a stagecoach that she has watched every day passing by her employers home - I suppose it's the Regency equivalent of wishing you were on a plane off to somewhere exotic!
Hannah's adventures are written in a light and entertaining style. The coach is first held up by a highwayman and later the passengers are all stranded at an inn in thick snow where Hannah really comes into her own! The eponymous Emily does deserve seeing a bit of cold hard reality, as one does quite want to slap the silly young thing to start with! Of course all's well that ends well and the romantic entanglements are resolved!
I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
