The Unseen Guest (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, #3)

The Unseen Guest (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, #3)The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third installment of this series answers a few questions and brings up some new ones.  The household returns to Ashton Place after the disastrous trip to see a play about pirates.  Lady Ashton can hardly hold her head up in society so they all pack up and go home, but that is hardly an end to their problems. Lord Frederick's mother comes for a visit with her amorous attendant, Admiral Faucet, and his ostrich, Bertha.  It is obvious to everyone that he is hoping to marry the dowager Ashton in order to fund his proposed business, ostrich racing.

Unfortunately, the ostrich gets out of her pen necessitating a hunt led by the almost blind Lord Frederick and his pack of hunters.  The hunt introduces the reader to Mama Woof and her other pups, and a disastrous chain of events soon follows. Like the other books in this series, it is fast paced and clever and leaves the reader with a thirst for answers.
