I wanted more

This didn’t get as silly as I remember the previous ones being. Still a
lovely distraction from real life though and wish there was another in the series.

Little Lady-tastic!

Loved this book and the whole series. All of the characters are excellent and their stories so good to listen to. The narration is brilliant too. I’m sorry every time I finish listening to one of these books.
If you love a good romp through someone else’s life you’ll love this series.
Fingers crossed there’s another one to come.

I love this series

I have really loved this series of three books. I love so many of the characters my favourite being Melissa /Honey. Oh and the end was delightful.
I loved the narrator so talented, the many voices she did for the characters, she made the book special.
All in all a great series, which I found hard to stop listening to.

Perfect Series Conclusion

Originally titled The Little Lady Agency and the Prince, book three of the Little Lady Agency series by Hester Browne is an absolutely adorable finish to the trilogy. The previous title does reflect a major plot point, but the new title brilliantly reflects Melissa’s underlying need to reflect on what she truly wants in life.

While contemplating making plans for a big life change, Melissa is presented with revamping the reputation of another dubious client. How can she refuse her dear grandmother when the client is the son of the lost love of her life? So, Honey takes on the rude, brash Prince Nicky in hopes of turning him into the desirable, debonair Prince Nicholas.
Prince Nicky being a minor royal without a principality is more like a reality television celebrity, both in terms of his notoriety and his public behavior. At first, it is quite difficult to like him as a character; not only does he behave like an entitled, rich kid, he puts Melissa in a multitude of difficult situations. “Honey” manages through the sticky social mishaps, while Melissa is forced to confront the reality of her fiancé’s expectations and how closely they align with those of her father. Creating The Little Lady Agency allowed Melissa to get out from under her father’s thumb. Is she willing to trade in her independence and submit to a controlling husband’s proposal? Along with that bit of seriousness, What The Lady Wants is filled with humor and romantic misadventures for Melissa’s motely group of friends.

The droll characters and the Romney-Jones family drama make this final series installment hilarious. Through the somewhat predictable mayhem, lovable Melissa shows her pluck and charm. The Little Lady series was my first romantic-comedy, and it remains one of my favorites. It is light-hearted and appropriately flirty and fun. In her relatively chaste books, Ms. Browne creates a lovely escape from the hum-drum demands of real life.


Narrator Lara J. West wonderfully brings this delightful book to life.
