Following their honeymoon on the Riviera, a stop in New York to visit her friends and family, and a trip to California for him to provide legal advice to an old client and her on a film, Penny and Jeremy return to late Great Aunt Penelope’s Victorian they call home in London. Inside is Rupert who has been working the couple’s business while they were away and two strangers.

Prince Charles sent Harriet Fieldworthy and her son Colin to engage the services of the couple. With a royal Rather Charming Invitation Penny and Jeremy travel to Cornwall to find a way to prevent a developer from “renovating” a section of the historical picaresque town. Included for devastation in the name of economic progress is the estate of Penny’s late grandmother which has sentimental value to the couple as they first met there as children. The only hop to stop the razing is to find something historically significant like proof that Shakespeare or Arthur slept there.

The fourth Rather British charming drama is a fun tale as there is no rest for the wary after their whirlwind tour. They make inquires seeking something that would place the Cornwall area on the protective heritage list but time is short. Ignoring a rather odd kidnapping, with quirky locals adding color to the tale, fans of the series will enjoy the race between preservationists and developers.
