5.0 out of 5 stars Has Annabelle met her match? 19 Feb 2012
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Annabelle has fallen in love with her sister Minerva's fiancé, Lord Sylvester, and is determined to take him away from her. She is convinced Sylvester really loves her and not her sister. But what about the Marquis of Brabington who has shown an interest in her in the past - could marrying him make her feel she is one up on her sister? What happens to Annabelle when she finds out that what she thinks she wants might not be what she really wants makes a fast paced and amusing tale.

At the start of the story Annabelle is a fairly unpleasant character but she gradually learns that she must change if she is to achieve happiness. I loved the scenes Annabelle creates when she is trying to be an adult, they are amusing and at times laugh out loud funny especially when she tries using slang she has overheard without knowing what it means. But Annabelle is far from stupid and gradually learns from her mistakes.

This is the second book in the Six Sisters series and it is every bit as good as the first book - Minerva (The Six Sisters Series) If you enjoy light hearted Regency romps with interesting and believable characters then you will enjoy this book and the series. Those who have read `Minerva' may be pleased to know that the marvellously comic character, Lady Godolphin, appears in this one too.

By Marshall Lord TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is the second 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 the second daughter, Annabelle.

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

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

There is some character development through the series, so although the books can stand on their own they are best read in the above order, starting with Minerva.

The author is a prolific writer of detective stories, including the Hamish MacBeth and Agatha Raisin books, and also of regency romances. Up to now she has usually published the former as M.C. Beaton and the latter as Marion Chesney, and this series was originally published under that pen-name, but it has now been republished under the "M.C. Beaton" label, so to speak.

3.0 out of 5 stars The least favourite of the sisters 28 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Annabelle is insufferable, and does not deserve the man she got. He's supposed to be a military man, but comes off as a wimp.

5.0 out of 5 stars MC Beaton most English! 11 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Historically fascinating fictional characters in all their splendour and finery. Etiquette, fashions, promenading, dancing and so my sweeting leads us to love and marriage and duty.

And for those who find with title comes a marriage without love then a little fun on the side is always up for exploration!

A fun read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 23 April 2013
By Cool
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of M C Beaton books and the Six Sisters Series is a great read. The story is about a sister looking for love and happiness and the challenges she faces in getting a husband. As with all M C Beaton books it is an easy but compelling read.

3.0 out of 5 stars This one is funny 1 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this series of books and reading how each of the sisters finds their beau. It has the usual twists and turns as they lthe path of true love doesn't run smoothly. They all have funny moments and frustrating moments where you think, haven't you worked it out yet. A nice easy enjoyable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 20 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can only assume that MC Beaton was having an off day when she wrote this. The story is totally ridiculous, the characters uniformly unlikable and unbelievable, the dialogue and vocabulary straight out of Georgetter Heyer (who at least researched the language of the time). One of the storylines was more or less identical to one of Georgette Heyer's but less well carried out.

I really persevered with the book, waiting for the srory to pick up and for something to happen, but it was a waste of time. If I hadn't bought this as a special offer I would have felt cheated. As it is, I think my 0.99 didn't represent value for money.

What a load of rubbish. The story has no substance and is utterly boring. I would not recommend it to anyone.
