    MC Beaton

    (3) Hand-picked favourites
    This collection brings together six stories about six sisters, all written by Book People favourite M.C. Beaton.

    Regency romance from a bygone era, these stories are very funny and are sure to appeal to the Agatha Raisin author's fans - although they are much lighter and very different to her crime writing.

    As well as Minerva, this collection gives all the sisters a chance to shine - Annabelle passionately falls for Minerva's intended, Lord Sylvester; Deidre wants to marry for love and nothing else; Diana loves to hunt while dressed as a man; and Frederica runs away from home when she has to follow her sisters in marrying magnificently.
