A dead employer’s legacy of five thousand pounds allows spinster Hannah Pym to resign from housekeeping and find adventure traveling the English countryside by coach. But the adventure soon finds Miss Pym traveling with Miss Emily Freemantle, a spoiled, violet-eyed beauty fleeing an arranged marriage to a rake she has never met. When Emily’s darkly handsome betrothed boards their stage, Miss Pym is certain the girl was rash to bolt from this aristocratic catch! So, as soon as the travelers repair to an inn, Miss Pym begins her matchmaking. Although Lord Ranger Harley complains he’ll not marry an ungrateful minx, Miss Pym suspects once she’s marshaled the couple into sharing intimate household chores, all romantic knots will be untangled.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[In] Chesney’s new Regency series, the Traveling Matchmaker…the passengers…put up at an inn that becomes snowbound. This sets an intimate scene for relationships to wither or flourish and for the forceful Ms. Pym to determinedly apply her matchmaking skills. Like some of Chesney’s spinsters in earlier series, Hannah Pym is not above an amusing deviousness, which brings about the happy endings in this unstartling, light entertainment.”

    " Light, fun, entertaining. Hannah Pym is a great character. The series (all 6 books) are quick reads - each claimed only 2-3 hours of my time. I think they're out of print now, and although available on Amazon for the Kindle, your best bet for finding them is your local library. "

    " Good library download. I listened while doing other things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Rothenberger | 2/13/2014

    " While I've read a number of the author's books written as M.C. Beaton (I especially like the Hamish Macbeth series), this is the first I've read written as Marion Chesney. I've got to say that I loved it! I checked the book out of the library tonight and read it in only a few hours. I enjoyed the characters, and the plot, while not complex, was just what I needed tonight. I've always enjoyed books like this (witness my fondness for Austen), and I plan on reading much more of Marion Chesney. "

    " I was a bit unsure at first as I've previously read some of her Agatha Raisin books and this is very different. Having said that, I did really enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nanette Pratt | 1/19/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libbeth | 1/12/2014

    " A nice light read that has a bit of everything, an historical element, a romantic element and even a "cozy" type mystery. For such a quick read there is a lot to keep you entertained and I look forward to downloading the rest in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 1/1/2014

    " Marion Chesney is one of my favorite romance writers. She's written a lot and they are all good, but I especially recommend the six traveling matchmaker books. The school for manners ones are my next favorites. I'm only keeping this one on my list though, I don't think I need all of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 12/26/2013

    " Oddly I started reading this a couple of months ago and couldn't get into it. Since then I've read several McBeaton historical books and went back and really enjoyed the rest of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aileen Grabill | 11/20/2013

    " I own this series - Marion Chesney's books are like Cream puffs - delightful, light, and you can't read just one! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zee | 11/4/2013

    " No literary merit whatsoever. Go for reading a chapter here and there between working though. "

    " A bit ridiculous, but cute. "
