Finessing Clarissa by Marion Chesney 168 pages
The fourth book in The School For Manners series has Effy and Amy taking on a new charge. Clarissa’s main faults are that she is tall and clumsy. And of course, she has unfashionably red hair. Luckily, the Earl of Greystone has already expressed an interest in the young Clarissa, so Amy and Effy’s jobs may be easier than usual. Unfortunately, during a stop at an inn on the way to London, a spy has snuck important papers into Clarissa’s jewelry box and now will stop at nothing to retrieve them, including murder. Another fun romp in Regency England for fans of the period and romance novels.
