STORY: Elderly widow Lady Fortescue must escape genteel poverty. If each of five geriatrics relieve a rich relative of a costly trifle, they can turn her house into a hotel for the ton.
Her nephew, Duke of Rowcester, is horrified, until he meets hotel chef Miss Harriet James, green-eyed beauty who remembers their waltz – before she lost parents and inherited debts.
REVIEW: Having never read this author before, I can say that this story was immensely entertaining. I literally had a grin on my face from start to finish.
The reason I got this audio book was the narrator. I fell in love with Davina Porter’s narrating skills ever since she did Outlander series, so I did some research and found some other books that she did and thought to try them on. I am so happy to have done it.
Lady Fortescue Steps Out is the first story in the Poor Relation series by Marion Chesney. It is a well written story and even though I may have had some qualms about the plot, I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters in this story. For that I really thank Ms. Porter and her wonderful portrayal of them.
I am really looking forward to digging into the rest of the stories in this series. Highly recommending it to all of you that need a break from hot and heavy romances you’ve been reading lately.
