When Amy and Effy Tribble, two charming but impoverished spinster sisters, lose out on a much needed inheritance, they place an advertisement in the Morning Post and hire themselves out as professional chaperones. Vowing to prepare even the most difficult misses for marriage, the Tribble sisters will spend a London season on each client in this delightful Regency series, the School for Manners. Felicity Baronsheath, their first assignment, turns out to be more of a challenge than they could ever have imagined. Not only is Felicity indifferent to the idea of marriage but she has been permitted to roam free on her father’s estates, hunting and carousing like any young lord. When her neighbor, the Marquess of Ravenswood, agrees to help the Tribbles set up their London town house, he confirms their observation that Felicity is a spoiled brat. And when Felicity insists on remaining unrefined, the Tribbles begin to fear that her season—and their new business venture—will end in disaster.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Although readers know that Felicity will snare the major catch of the season, there are enough amusing missteps and romantic confusions to hold attention in this lively novel.” Publishers Weekly
“Chesney…has created a terrific idea for her latest Regency series, the School for Manners. The Misses Tribble, Amy and Effy, spinsters of a certain age, have lived for years on expectations of a great inheritance. When this fails to materialize, they are truly destitute. Desperate, they advertise that they will refine wild and unruly daughters, present them, and see them safely wed. This first volume concerns Lady Felicity Vane and the Marquess of Ravenswood in a love-hate courtship. The Tribbles are charmers and much more fun than their charges. Very highly recommended.” Library Journal
“The first of six in a welcome new series—as the best of the Regency writers again offers an amusing merry-go-round of a tale…[with a] suitably happy close. For fans of the genre, then, more thoroughly engaging entertainment.” Kirkus Reviews
