Joshua Dibbs has been the butler at the Earl of Harrington�s London town home since 1809. If there is one thing Dibbs is known for, it is doing things properly. At least until now. Alas, when the earl arrives unexpectedly, the butler is reliant on help from a homeless woman to keep the household running until the staff returns!

When the door is opened for her this time her hopes rise up. Will she finally have a home and shelter for a day or two? Or even just a night? This is so unique. A look at the Regency from below-stairs. Dibbs is the butler to Gideon Wolfe, who is at his country home for Christmas. He was also Gideon’s friend at one time before he became an earl. The next story in the Tales series is about Whit who is Dibb’s cousin, Fortune Said. The Haberdasher Tales are sweet books.
