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.
