Upstairs, downstairs, and in which ladys chamber?

   On the brink of World War II, two girls are sent to the grand English country estate of Starkers. Hannah, the half-Jewish daughter of a disgraced distant relative, has been living an artistic bohemian life in a cabaret in pre-war Germany and now is supposed to be welcomed into the family. Anna, the social-climbing daughter of working-class British fascists, is supposed to be hired as a maid so that she can spy for the Nazis. But theres a mix-up, and nice Hannah is sent to the kitchen as a maid while arrogant Anna is welcomed as a relative.

   And then both girls fall for the same man, the handsome heir of the estate . . . or do they? 

  In this sparkling, saucy romance, nearly everything goes wrong for two girls who are sent to a grand English estate on the brink of World War II—until it goes so very, very right!

Synopsis:

Downton Abbey meets the classic British comedy of errors in this warm and witty YA romance.

Synopsis:

After the Russian revolution, Russian countess Anna flees to England and takes a job as servant in the household of the Westerholme family. Desperate to keep her past a secret, Anna is nearly overwhelmed by her new duties--not to mention her instant attraction to Rupert, the handsome Earl of Westerholme.

Synopsis:

A delicious historical romance perfect for fans of Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs

After the Russian Revolution turns her world topsy-turvy, Anna, a young Russian countess, has no choice but to flee to England. penniless, Anna hides her aristocratic background and takes a job as servant in the household of the esteemed Westerholme family, armed only with an outdated housekeeping manual and sheer determination. Desperate to keep her past a secret, Anna is nearly overwhelmed by her new duties--not to mention her instant attraction to Rupert, the handsome Earl of Westerholme. to make matters worse, Rupert appears to be falling for her as well. As their attraction grows stronger, Anna finds it more and more difficult to keep her most dearly held secrets from unraveling. And then there's the small matter of Rupert's beautiful and nasty fiancee. . . .

The synopsis and publisher's comments do not describe how delightful this book was to read! I laughed out loud at some of Anna's efforts, but also took great joy in the way the author used language to tell so much with few words. This is one to keep for a second and third reading.

An absolutley wonderful book. It is as amazining and captivating as all her other books. It tells the tale of a fallen Russian girl whose family was driven out by the revolution. Her family had ties to the Czars family, and their maid ran off with the family jewels. Now she must work as a servent, but fall for her boss. A wonder story and a must read for every teenage girl.
