When ear-scratcher (the duke) and Calls-Me-Sweetie-Pie (the Duchess) do not return in time to host their family's famous series of tea parties, Lady Ginny (the poodle) and Codger (the cat) must step in. Codger slows them down a bit, but with the help of Cook and two tiny and unusual characters, they entertain eleven gatherings of guests from mountain lions to butterflies, with just the right treats for each, elegantly prepared, and (almost) flawlessly presented. Lady Ginny's Tea Parties is Lady Ginny’s scrapbook, documenting her heroic attempts: the menus, the mishaps and the haute couture.

Ginny figured being a 21st century woman, stuck in the past, playing other people's lives would be fun. It turns out, it's just work. Her new persona, Bethany, is a society daughter whose only purpose is to make an excellent marriage, while playing by a long list of rules. When her parents bring her to a house party so she can meet eligible bachelors, Bethany has her hands full. Will she choose the staunch earl, who has no wish to marry yet? Or will it be the future duke who has a reputation with the ladies? Or the kind, country doctor instead? Even Ginny can't figure out who she is supposed to "fall in love with." All she knows is that she needs to marry someone if she ever hopes to return to own body, in her own time.
