Sir Philip's Folly (The Poor Relation Series Book 4) (Kindle Locations 23-24). Sir Philip is not the most likable character in these books but he is defiantly the most interesting and he has those moments of helpfulness that make him more appealing. In this one we got new characters and the drama between the remaining poor relations is coming to a head. THIS ONE is the best. I am liking this series the more it goes on which is rare for me!

In the afternoon, she heard her mother and servants go out.

Sir Philip's Folly (The Poor Relation Series Book 4). M. Beaton. I have wanted to read a book by MC Beaton (aka Marion Chesney, etc) for some time and finally, due to an Audible Deal of the Day, snatch up my first one. Rather than one of her mysteries, I picked up one of her light Regency Romantic Comedies and it was a gem of a story that left me not only eager for the rest of the series, but for more of her books. Lady Fortescue Steps Out is the first book in the Poor Relations series. The series title says it all as this is the story of a group of people, starting with Lady Fortescue, who come together out of necessity.

I enjoyed reading this so much! I could barely put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen next. I'm excited for the next book in the series. The characters are wonderful and unique. I recommend this book to people who like romance with a surrounding cast of interesting characters and the romance is a part of the story, not the whole story.

MC Beaton always entertains! The poor relations are pure delicious pleasure, and Sir Sidney is surely the inspiration for Agatha Raisin in Beaton’s later work.

In this series the books keep getting better and better. This book is every bit as good as the previous one and leaps and bounds above the first two. While the romance in this book is not exactly central, it does play a large part. We see more character growth in the staple characters and the plot was rich, juicy, and thick. Despard did not feature in this book unfortunately but an entertaining new character was introduced whom I am hoping will stay for the remaining books. An Excellent read. Very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

This episode in the lives of the Poor Relations will not disappoint. Anyone who is a fan of M C Beaton will thoroughly enjoy this chapter. Predictable to some degree but she kept me guessing as to how she would accomplish the task. Sure to please everyone.

Description: A tale full of scheming, deception, greed and romance. The owners of the Poor Relation hotel conspire to evict a vulgar leech of a guest while also attempting to help a young lady escape her mother's control and win over the man of her dreams.

You will find yourself transported to London in the early 1800s, engrossed in a story with a lot of twists and turns. Watch as this diverse cast schemes to unmask a gold digger and make a name for their hotel. This book is full of subterfuge and humor.

In Short: This is a thoroughly entertaining book. The characters are all unique and fascinating. The story is fast paced and full of intrigue. The ending is satisfying and leaves no loose ends untied.

Pros: Although this book is the 4th in the Poor Relation series it stands alone well and doesn't leave you hanging in the end. This book will make sense to you even if you have not read any of the other books in the series. This book has a fun, fast paced story. With no fluff it makes for a quick entertaining read.

Cons: The kindle edition has a lot of words smashed together and in one part of the book there is a block of text missing. I don't know if these problems exist in any other versions of the book. The words run together likethis interrupted the flow of reading but because I was so engrossed in the story I didn't dwell on the typos and just kept reading!

Things heat up when Sir Phillip drops his attentions to Miss Tonk, flies into a snit, and seeks solice in the arms of a common, grasping woman. This puts him at odds with everyone and leads to more plots. Included are the romances of several of the clients boarding at the hotel. A very sweet romance indeed with a lot of maneuvering to get the right people together.
  • Kearanny
Sir Philip is the rascal in the Poor Relations business venture, and as always, his exploits create opportunities for romance to blossom!
Another entertaining read in the Regency series. A lot of research must have gone into the habits, dress, etc. of this period, as the book is full of interesting detail about all levels of society. In addition it's funny. I could only wish the books were longer, as I finish one and find I have to buy another to satisfy my craving.
