About the Author
M. C. Beaton (1936-2019), hailed as the "Queen of Crime" by The Globe and Mail, was the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Agatha Raisin novels--the basis for the hit show on Acorn TV and public television--as well as the Hamish Macbeth series and the Edwardian Murder Mysteries featuring Lady Rose Summer. Born in Scotland, she started her career writing historical romances under several pseudonyms. Her books have sold more than twenty-two million copies worldwide.
"She expertly sets the scene, recapturing the bawdiness and color of a long-ago time, and her characters fairly leap off the pages...Hilarious and tragic; larceny, attempted murder, a satisfactory love affair and unlikely alliances make the hotel the liveliest spot in London."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"A charming and humorous Regency, recommended for those who enjoy lighthearted historical romance."-- "Library Journal"
"[Beaton's] fans will cheer when they open the pages of her latest romantic series and find a solid cast of eccentrics who call themselves the Poor Relations...A promising start to a new set of Regency romance novels from the author of the Traveling Matchmaker and three other entertaining series."-- "Booklist"
