Thanks to Tackling Mt. TBR who pointed out the new (to me) Regency series by MC Beaton.
"Emily Goes to Exeter" is as charming as its cover. Sometimes MC Beaton's almost too harsh for me in how she skewers people's pretensions and the silly "rules" by which we live our lives. But in this opening to the Travelling Matchmaker series, I think she's struck the perfect balance of wry good humour and hope.
A delightful book.
