Note: Originally published: New York: St. Martin's Press, 1987 Lord Guy Carlton, late of His Majesty's Regiment and weary from the war in France, has only wine, women and song in mind when he rents No. 67 Clarges Street for the season. He certainly has no desire for a serious attachment - and as for marriage: never! But Lord Guy Carlton didn't factor in the lovely but very proper Miss Esther Jones. Although one of the richest women in England she is also one of the most innocent which could make her an unwilling victim of the philandering lord.

And then there is Lady Carruthers, a highly rouged widow who passes off her grown daughter, Arabella, as a school miss while setting her own cap for the young Earl of Denby, despite the fact that young Arabella is quite smitten with the dashing golden-haired earl! So once again it is up to the other poor relations to straighten out the course of true love.

Note: Standard format edition originally published: New York: St. Martin's Press, 1992 What do you do if you are of noble stock - but impoverished, and living in London with a certain style to maintain? One has to work - but one's relatives will be appalled when one turns one's hand to trade - and opens a hotel, The Poor Rrelation, offering employment to others of the same social standing and in the same awkward situation.

Book:Death of an honest man:2019 Book
Author: Beaton, M C
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Constable
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2018 Nobody loves an honest man, or that was what police sergeant Hamish Macbeth tried to tell newcomer Paul English. Paul attended church in Lochdubh. He told the minister, Mr Wellington, that his sermons were boring. He told tweedy Mrs Wellington that she was too fat. Angela Brody was told her detective stories were pap for the masses and it was time she wrote literature instead. He accused Hamish of having dyed his fiery red hair. He told Jessie Currie - who repeated all the last words of her twin sister - that she needed psychiatric help. 'I speak as I find', he bragged. Voices saying, 'I could kill that man', could be heard from Lochdubh to Cnothan. And someone did. Now Hamish is faced with an array of suspects. And he's lost the services of his clumsy policeman, Charlie, who has resigned from the force after throwing Chief Inspector Blair into the loch. Can Hamish find the killer on his own?
