Jenny Sutherland is pretty, but the lovely country girl is also vain. Her guardian has decided that a London season is just the thing to give the fair Jenny a sorely deserved set-down. Meanwhile, the handsome Duke of Pelham, owner of 67 Clarges Street, has returned from Europe at last - to find a wife. Used to women doting on him, the Duke turns the ton against the disdainful Jenny who dares to spurn him at her very first London soiree. Alas, he’s fallen in love with the miss he’s just ruined! Now his butler Rainbird has a mischievous plan to get Jenny into the Duke’s arms - and teach this upstairs Lord and Lady a humbling lesson about downstairs servants - and the human heart.
What would have made Rainbird's Revenge better?
More twist and turns, along with a fuller story and intrigue.
Would you ever listen to anything by M. C. Beaton again?
I don't know if I would.
What three words best describe Lindy Nettleton’s performance?
Excellent, fun, good character voices.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rainbird's Revenge?
The kissing on the office floor, not appropriate for the day and age.
Any additional comments?
I think I will return it.
