The Mysterious Howling and The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood
I read the first two books in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, The Mysterious Howling and The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood, back when they were first released. However, when I learned that Katherine Kellgren had narrated the audio versions, I thought a re-read was in order! It's interesting that so much of what Kellgren narrates matches my reading taste.
When Miss Penelope Lumley, fresh out of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, accepts a position as governess to the wards of Lord Frederick Ashton, little does she know that the children were literally raised by wolves! But Penelope is never shy about facing a challenge. She soon learns, however, that the children's origins are not the only mystery within Ashton Place . . .
These are delightful books, and the audiobook versions are highly enjoyable.
