5.0 out of 5 stars The Autumn Bride 21 Jan 2013
By Clare O'Beara TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this entertaining nineteenth century romp, a rags to riches story.
Max, aged 18, is the new Lord Davenham, but his schooldays have come to a bitter end for he has inherited a pile of debt from his uncle, while his aunt may have to lose her home to pay the bills. It's his duty to find a way to placate the creditors. Abigail Chantry is just a governess in London, and when her sister Jane sends a message that she's being held captive in a brothel, she has to rescue Jane despite fearing for her position. She doesn't expect two more mistreated girls to tag along as well.

Max has prospered due to hard work and investment in the East Indies and now sets sail for London to visit his elderly aunt Beatrice. But Abigail and her three 'sisters' have inveigled their way in past the neglectful dishonest servants, and set up house to care for the malnourished old lady properly, including a new doctor who prescribes her exercise and excitement. Max has to believe that the four impostors are there under false pretences, taking advantage of his aunt's kindness and claiming to be her nieces. Anyway, he's betrothed, to a lady in Manchester he hasn't seen in nine years. And his well-bred friends have no intention of getting caught in parson's mousetrap.

Quotations from Jane Austen head each chapter of THE AUTUMN BRIDE, evoking the period. Lady Beatrice is an absolute treasure. Her formerly Titian locks have turned grey, and the girls introduce her to henna, so she declares firmly that her restored health has caused her hair to regain its colour. When her nephew moves them all to a smart Mayfair house, forbidding Beatrice to go visiting while he is away in Manchester, she starts a literary salon so Society calls on her.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sparkling Start to the Chance Sisters 5 Feb 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Max became Lord Davenham at just eighteen he faced a terrible truth - ruination. His spendthrift uncle had not only wasted the family's fortune, but had got deeply into debt. Determined to save the family estate and his aunt's London home, Max made a devil's bargain and has spent the last nine years abroad, making a fortune to repay it.

Now that the debt and interest have been cleared, Max was all set to enjoy his last year of freedom before completing his promised bargain, but worrying rumours about his aunt have brought him back to England.

Only to find her home overtaken by four strange women, claiming not only to be sisters to each other, but nieces to his aunt as well. Which is impossible, since Max is the only family Aunt Bea has left! Worst of the lot is Miss Abigail Chance, the oldest and ring leader, who is not the least bit afraid to stand up to him. She's bossy, stubborn, high-handed, takes excellent care of his aunt - and Max is terribly attracted to her.

There is something strange afoot here, beyond the obvious lies, and Max is determined to figure it out - before Miss Abby worms her way into his heart as easily as she took over his house.

Anne Gracie is back with a new series - the Chance Sisters - which has more than a little in common with her wonderful Merridew Sisters quartet (Perfect Rake, Perfect Waltz, Perfect Stranger, Perfect Kiss), but only in the best possible way. Abby is a caring, strong, sweet heroine trying to do her best by her `sisters' as well as her honorary aunt, while struggling not to fall for the autocratic, arrogant, protective and honourable Max.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start for new series 9 Feb 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this book and I wasn't disappointed.The heroine was suitably fiesty and the hero another of Gracie's luscious males.The story moved along at a decent pace and although I would have forgiven the heroine if she had strangled her younger sister at one point the characters were well fleshed out and believable.I especially can't wait to meet Aunt Bea again in the next book!

Awaited this and was not disappointed. Anne Gracie writes beautiful characters, sets them in luscious surroundings and the plots are multi-level and so keeps you interest to the very end.
