Description

A former employer’s legacy of £5,000 has allowed charming spinster Hannah Pym to give up her housekeeping work and to travel the English countryside, where she encounters adventure and many opportunities to ply her expert matchmaking skills.

Lady Beatrice Marsham has quite the problem. No sooner is she widowed from a brutish gambling husband than her heartless family is forcing her into another horrid marriage. Fleeing by stagecoach to the Brighton seaside, the proud beauty meets Miss Hannah Pym, who is determined to find her a proper match.

The handsome and kind Lord Alistair Munro would be perfect. Unfortunately, he is convinced by the town gossip that proclaims Lady Beatrice a cruel flirt. Miss Pym, however, is not worried. The young lady’s hard heart has softened much since coming to Brighton, and though Lord Alistair disapproves of the old Lady Beatrice, by Miss Pym’s clever design, he is sure to fall in love with the new and improved model.
