by Marion ChesneyThis series continues to be absolutely ridiculous. Sir Philip is the foulmouthed criminal mastermind among the Poor Relations (the mostly elderly band of poor gentlepeople running a hotel during the Regency), but when he falls in love with someone absolutely inappropriate, the rest of the gang have to up their own game in order to drive away his beloved. Also, there is a long infodump about the hair powder tax that I found absolutely fascinating—even if it was relevant only to understand an insult one character hurled at another, I appreciated it. At the very least, Chesney's Regencies resemble no other Regency romances I've read.
There is a lot of fat shaming in this book, unfortunately. :(
