Miss Marjorie Montmorency-James was very lovely, very young, and very impressionable . . . which is why she fell in love with Lord Philip's picture in the newspaper. Little did she suspect that she would soon meet Lord Philip in the flesh. For what would a daughter of the middle class be doing rubbing shoulders with the mobility?

Marjorie Montmerency-Jones is an heiress – but her money comes from trade so she may not be acceptable to high society. Marjorie herself is a very good mimic and when she has her first season she starts to imitate young women about her with results which are far from being what she intended. She falls in love with Lord Philip but his unofficial fiancée decides to eliminate the competition – permanently.

I started off thinking Marjorie was just a stupid little girl but I gradually warmed to her an

What a ridiculously silly story! But short and simple, perfect length for a quick road trip.
Extra cute and fun for a fluffy Edwardian romance.

Beaton is such a funny writer. I love her take on the Edwardian morality and fashions. She knows what women were like and captures that young immaturity so well. Philip is the perfect moronic aristocrat with no feelings or not many anyway. He is well punished by being captured by Hermione in marriage. Whereas Marjorie and Robert are so unexpected but meant to be.

This is one of the few books/series I would read again. These stories of Marion Chesney started me on my adventure...reading Regency Romance/Novels/History! There is not a set of books that will teach you more about the basics about life in Regency England. There are six series with six books each. I love them all. It must be a "past life" thing:)

I just re-read this one and I forgot how annoying Marjorie was through most of the book. Phillip is a cad and she must be blind not to see it but fortunately she eventually grows up and realizes the person she should have chosen all along.
