Publisher Description

A fading English finishing school gets a twenty-first-century makeover in this "modern-day fairy tale" (Romantic Times Book Reviews) from New York Times bestselling author Hester Browne, whose sparkling novels are "charming and feel-good" (Cosmopolitan).

Twenty-seven years ago, an infant turned up on the doorstep of London’s esteemed Phillimore Academy for Young Ladies. Now, Betsy Phillimore returns to the place where she was lovingly raised by Lord and Lady Phillimore, only to find the Academy in disrepair and Lord P. desperate to save his legacy. Enter Betsy with a savvy business plan to replace dusty protocol with the essentials girls need today: cell phone etiquette, eating sushi properly, handling credit cards, choosing the perfect little black dress, negotiating a pre-nup, and other lessons in independent living. But returning to London also means crossing paths with her sexy girlhood crush . . . and stirring up the mystery of who her parents are and why they abandoned her. Will the puzzle pieces of her past fall into place while Betsy races to save the only home she’s ever known?

Vickym00 ,

Perfect light read

Such a surprising delightful read! Just as good as her other book- swept off her feet. Highly recommend it!

Home-heart ,

Hester Brown's book is delightful!

Mixing old-fashioned manners with "can do" spunk, Betsy tackles towering obstacles with grace and determination while making it fun for us to come along the journey with her.

The Finishing Touches

Cute, light read. Predictable. Not as good as Little Lady Agency. If you haven't read that, do! It's a great summer read.
