    1. Rebecca on said:

      Started as a spirited story with a spunky heroine. But she fell in love too fast and there was a little bit of crudity in the end which totally jarred with the rest of the book.

    2. Janet McCord on said:

      I keep seeing scathing reviews for the author's Regency romances and people comparing them, unfavorably, to Georgette Heyer's similar genre. While I love Heyer's books too, I also love these. What I love most about Chesney/Beaton's series of Regency Romances is the education she includes, almost off-handedly, about the period. She has obviously done her research and has a great knowledge of the customs, behaviors and many other minutiae, and includes them in her stories so that it makes the time [...]

      I was looking for a regency romance in the style of Georgette Heyer and thought I'd give Marion Chesney a try. She's also a prolific mystery writer under the name M.C. Beaton. I was quite disappointed in this story. I didn't expect much of the plot but was at least hoping for some witty banter. The characters were underdeveloped and uninteresting. *Sigh* I don't know why it's so difficult to find decent books in this genre. I'm now a little worried about the quality of writing in her famed Hamis [...]

      A bit of Regency fluff that I listened to on audiobook while sewing and doing mundane work tasks. I enjoyed the period details and descriptions of middle-class ladies trying to set up a confectionary shop.

    5. Amanda on said:

      This was terrible I normally at least like Marion Chesney work, I think I have only really liked one or two books. But I at least like reading them they are normal quick, cute, and entertaining. They are light and fluffy which is sometimes just what you need in a book. I was soooo disappointed by this book. First off, why even have them go into trade and have that be such a big part of who Heneritta is if she is just going to abandon it as soon as she meets a man. Also, the characters seem compl [...]

      A group of down-on-their luck ladies decide to escape their troubles and open a confectioners in London. This is risky because the merchant class is not looked upon the same way as the gentry, but with a lot of flair and fashion they just might succeed. Of course, the brains behind the scheme, Henrietta, wants nothing to do with love and marriage but discovers that she must alter her behavior in order to protect the other ladies under her care. This means an involvement with an Earl. Of course. [...]

      What Do Men Really Want?This book processes to think that a male member of the tin will never even look at a young woman unless she practices all the many things that prove a young lady to be very rich as that's what a true female member of the ton must never hold a job or even think for herself! If he wants to miss her, she must be a prostitute! This book does it's best to prove that; however , the three men in this story seem to truly love these three shop girls, don't they?

    8. Leann on said:

      This was an enjoyable, regency romance. The ending was tidied up a little to easily for me, but overall, the story kept me engaged.

    9. Mckinley on said:

      This is the best one of the series in my opinion however, I didn't like this series so much. See her Poor Relations and The Traveling Matchmaker for fun romances.

And, to make matters worse, she has taken three other gentlewomen with her. There is her housemate and former school teacher, a young, beautiful army widow of good family, and the local squire's daughter who is tired of being beaten whenever the mood [...]

    11. Tara on said:

      I love these books. They're a mix between regency romance and mystery. I love that combination. And the characters are always slightly eccentric and funny. Not life changing, but always enjoyable.

      The intrepid heroine of this novel is Miss Henrietta Bascombe, the orphaned daughter of a country doctor who has recently received a small inheritance from one of her father's former patients.

Along with two local girls and a former school teacher, Henrietta opens Bascombes sweet shop which quickly becomes popular with the young gentlemen wishing to look at the p [...]

      Simply I adore the books of Marion Chesney / M. C. Beaton. This is an adorable tale of love and resilience. Miss Henrietta Bascombe; a darling lass of 19 has been reduced to genteel poverty by the death of her father. When a friend of her late father's leaves her £5000 instead of hieing herself off to a spa resort to search for a husband she collects several other ladies of good background but no means and heads to London to open a confectionery shop to rival the famous Gunthers. And of course [...]

      I was looking forward to a brief but fun Regency romance when I picked this up at my local libraryd that's mostly what I got.There are generous bits of romance and humor to be found in this book and I never once got bored with it or considered not finishing it. The topic of a woman going into trade during that time period is mentioned extensively, which is a bit much, and I think the lead male character could easily become a bit of a jerk at times, which lessens the appeal, but there is fun here [...]

      Golden Pineapple - okay, but not something specialEntertaining, I'll give the book that. This series first book was so much fun, I had to give book 2 a try. Well, it was not quite as good as I'd hoped. The story missed whatever special something M.C. Beaton's first book hadt sure what that special something is, but it is missing in this story. However, with that said, I still enjoyed reading this book.

      3 STARS "Miss Herrietta Bascombe was determined to use her inheritance to open a London sweet shop to rival the famous Gunther's. Her bosom chums gasped to hear such a well-bred lady talk about going into business!" (From )(AKA MC Beaton)I like Chesney's humour whether it is in her contemporary mysteries or historical "romances". I listened to this one on audio and did not disappoint.

    20. Gloria Mccracken on said:

      Another quick, light read. This is the story of a Miss Bascombe, aged 19, who receives a small inheritance and decides to recruit two other beautiful young women of good family in difficult circumstances to start a confectionery in London. It will surprise no one that both hilarity and romance ensue.

    21. Elen on said:

      I loved the characters, the unusual setting, reasonably well orchestrated plot, and good writing. But there wasn't any love for me to love. The story falls flat. It's quite sad, really, how some authors with elementary writing skills can capture sizzling chemistry but some seasoned authors can only deliver narratives in monotone.

    22. Elaine on said:

      Good and yet mildly weird story. Three Jane Austen style women and comparable men plus a loveable street urchin. Progresses pleasantly as you might expect with the usual complications. I don't agree with the ending. You might like it if you are a certain type of romantic.

    23. Pattie on said:

      Meh. Love Marion Chesney but didn't realize this was a romance of sorts. I like the story of the women venturing out on their own but the rest was trite and uninteresting to me. Granted, this may have been the way romance was seen in her day/in that age, but it just struck me as silly.

    24. Bonnie on said:

      I'm not that much of a romance novel reader, but I enjoy M.C. Beaton, whether writing as Beaton or as Marian Chesney. Her stories don't take themselves seriously and have a slightly cynical edge to them. The end was obvious, but getting there was fun.

    25. Yukari Watanabe on said:

      The most likable heroine of Chesney's to me. However, the hero is an ar*e. (Usually that's the case with Chesney's books).

    26. Libbeth on said:

      Miss Herrietta Bascombe uses her inheritance to open a London sweet shop. Her friends are shocked, well bred ladies don't go into business!

    27. Bunnyk on said:

      Not as good as her novels normally are. I wanted to smack the H for being an arrogant dickhead more than once!
