A Fugitive Green podcast series
Listen to podcast!
Minnie Rennie certainly has her hands full in this week’s episode, Where Her Work Leads.” She is so busy with work and socializing, she barely has a moment to herself. Her father has sent her a new prospective client and Colonel Quarry have given her additional jobs to complicate her schedule even more.
She is diligently trying to find any whiff of the affair between Esme Grey and Nathaniel Twelvetrees. It turns out the amorous couple were quite discreet. She does learn much about the Duke of Pardloe aka Lord Melton and his marriage though. Unable to scrounge up detail, she meets with Colonel Quarry and works on a new plan.
The new customer is set to meet her at The Prince of Wales residence at Kew. She dresses all in green so “Mr. Bloomer” will recognize her as the hired agent. After spying a striking soldier who reminded her of a bantam cock, she and her client meet. They walk through the glasshouses (greenhouses) chatting about the plants until they arrive in the last one. It is empty. They exchange the agreed upon business before being interrupted by Lord Melton coming in to the quiet glasshouse.
“Mr. Bloomer” makes a hasty exit after imploring her to go distract His Grace.
She and Lord Melton have a most unexpected and intimate conversation after she helps him gather his breath post asthma attack. They have great chemistry.
You’ll have to tune in next week to see what happens.
