4.0 out of 5 stars Good light read 20 Mar 2012
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the fifth book in the Six Sisters series of Regency romances. I did not feel this book was quite as good as the previous four books but I did enjoy reading it. Diana - fifth daughter of country vicar Charles Armitage - would rather have been born a man.

She is not interested in clothes or anything fashionable and would prefer to spend her time riding and hunting. She hunts with her father's pack of hounds dressed as a man. It is during one of these escapades - which would ruin her reputation if it was public - that she finds herself stranded in the fog and at night outside a house belonging to a new neighbour Lord Mark Dantrey.

What follows when Diana is sent to stay with Lady Godolphin to prepare for her first Season and to find herself a husband makes entertaining and amusing reading. Diana decides to stay in London for a week disguised as a young man before resigning herself to a life of boredom but she finds life as a man is not all it's cracked up to be.

It was nice to catch up with the rest of the series characters especially Lady Godolphin with her marvellous malapropisms and to see how the lives of the other sisters are progressing. The book can be read as a standalone story but if you start with the first one Minerva (The Six Sisters Series) you can watch how the characters develop.

By Marshall Lord TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is the penultimate book in a charming series of six regency romances, each of which has as its central character one of the six daughters of the Reverend Armitage, a warm-hearted but reprobate "squarson" who would rather hunt than preach. It tells the story of his fifth daughter, Diana, who very much takes after her father, so much so that she actually enjoys hunting as much as he does.

The full sequence of titles in "The Six Sisters" series is:

1) Minerva (The Six Sisters Series)
2) The Taming of Annabelle (The Six Sisters Series)
3) Deirdre and Desire (The Six Sisters Series)
4) Daphne (The Six Sisters Series)
5) This book, "Diana the Huntress"
6) Frederica in Fashion (The Six Sisters Series)

The opening sentence of this book tells us that "Had she not had four extremely beautiful elder sisters, Diana Armitage might have been accounted very well in her way" but that she had "mannish airs" and was regarded as lacking the charm and delicacy of thr four older girls. Although considering what her sisters had sometimes got up to in the previous books, those expressing this opinion and assuming there was no prospect of change must have had short memories !

Diana had always wanted to hunt, and at the end of her fourth sister Daphne's eponymous book, she persuaded their father to allow this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rake And The Bounder 17 Aug 2013
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Meet Diana Armitage, a young lady who prefers to act like a man. With no ideas of marrying and practising transvestitism so she can ride at the Hunt, she is about to find out all about romance. With the attentions of the known rake, Lord Dantrey and card sharp, Jack Emberton can Diana decide who to make the right marriage with?

Diana passing herself off as David finds that being a man may give you a certain freedom, but it can also lead to problems, especially in London. She isn't the first woman to do so as Lord Saunders recounts the famous true story of Christian Cavenaugh. With loads of incidents, and plotting there is quite a bit here, but alas like the other two novels in this series I have so far read, this does lack a certain amount of humour. There is some here but certain incidents aren't played upon enough for their full humorous qualities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted summer read 12 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another hilarious book from M C Beaton from the Six Sisters series. Diana is the 5th sister and it seems she is very unlikely to get married as she prefers to dress as a man to go hunting which is enough to make all the other ladies swoon and faint with horror if only they knew. This book follows the same format as the other Sisters books, with a rich suitor who appears to be the baddie and a good looking one who pretends to be rich and charming but is the opposite. The tale twists and turns with lots of misunderstandings and the couple in denial of their love for each other. But as always the good guy wins and the 'pretender' gets his just desserts with Diana turning from the tomboy into the beautiful swan we all knew she was. These books seem to be very superficial and obvious, but they are actually very well researched with a wealth of historical detail such as the fashions and food of the day mentioned. They make an ideal easy holiday read and the characters are hilarious - especially the bawdy older woman chaperone who has far worse morals than any of the girls she is asked to care for!

As a fan of Hamish Macbeth I looked forward to reading this book, however, this was a feeble pastiche of a Bronte type book and lacked any originality or even humour. Read more

This book is brilliant, ight and fun. A must read for any train traveller. Easy short chapters so you just romp through it. You dont even have to read the 'six sisters' in order.
