Description

“[In] Chesney’s new Regency series, the Traveling Matchmaker…the passengers…put up at an inn that becomes snowbound. This sets an intimate scene for relationships to wither or flourish and for the forceful Ms. Pym to determinedly apply her matchmaking skills. Like some of Chesney’s spinsters in earlier series, Hannah Pym is not above an amusing deviousness, which brings about the happy endings in this unstartling, light entertainment.” Publishers Weekly

The New York Times bestselling Traveling Matchmaker series begins with a Regency tale of seductive subterfuge—from the author of the Agatha Raisin novels

A dead employer’s legacy of five thousand pounds allows spinster Hannah Pym to resign from housekeeping and find adventure traveling the English countryside by coach. But the adventure soon finds Miss Pym traveling with Miss Emily Freemantle, a spoiled, violet-eyed beauty fleeing an arranged marriage to a rake she has never met. When Emily’s darkly handsome betrothed boards their stage, Miss Pym is certain the girl was rash to bolt from this aristocratic catch! So, as soon as the travelers repair to an inn, Miss Pym begins her matchmaking. Although Lord Ranger Harley complains he’ll not marry an ungrateful minx, Miss Pym suspects once she’s marshaled the couple into sharing intimate household chores, all romantic knots will be untangled.
