The conclusion to the delightful series set in a London townhouse, from the New York Times–bestselling author!
The house at 67 Clarges Street in fashionable Mayfair has seen many guests, all looked after by the quirky staff of servants. When the house’s owner, the Duke of Pelham, finally returns, he is grimly determined to find a suitable wife—but completely unprepared for what the season has to offer. The duke’s title alone has always brought him more than his share of feminine attention, and while he claims to not believe in love, he has never been spurned by a lady.
The duke’s self-imposed search is soon disrupted by the arrival in London of Miss Jenny Sutherland, a spoiled but beautiful country girl whose vanity is her tragic flaw. According to her guardian Aunt Letitia, lack of competition has made Jenny put on airs; in London, she will get the set-down she sorely deserves. Indeed, at her first important London party, Jenny’s blatant disdain for the duke leads to disaster.
But no one has counted on the intervention of John Rainbird, the house’s shrewd and resourceful butler. The result is a mischievous scheme that will insure Jenny’s social success and determine the fate of the close-knit family of servants at 67 Clarges Street . . .

The was the very end of the series, "A house for the seasons.". what a wonderful ending. It is best to start with the first book. M.C. Beaton is my very favorite author.
