I went to the library the other day and in the spirit of my 2014 reading resolution allowed myself to enjoy actually browsing the shelves and choosing something to reread. I had remembered how much I loved the Marion Chesney Regency romances-the first Regencies I read, and one of my first forays into adult books as a teenager. While I did not remember this specifically I assume that I read it, but who knows-she has several series. This is #1 in the Travelling Matchmaker series. Hannah is an older woman (40s or 50s-ancient in those days) who has risen through the ranks to become head housekeeper of a grand house. Unfortunately, her employer dies and all the servants must find new posts. Fortunately, to Hannah’s surprise, she has been rewarded for her devotion with 5000 pounds-enough to buy a cottage and never work again. But what Hannah has always wanted is to travel on the coach and explore England. She buys a ticket for the stage and promptly gets thrown into adventure. The coach crashes, plus there’s a snowstorm, and everyone is trapped inside an inn. Hannah takes charge, including matchmaking between a spoiled flighty young woman and a handsome titled man. There’s attempted murder, hijinks, and all that you might expect in this sort of quick read historical. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
