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.

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 !

Marion Chesney is a prolific writer of Regency romances: she also writes mystery stories under the name M.C. Beaton. Her regency novels vary considerably in sophistication: even her simplest ones are at least slightly more challenging than most of the trashy regency romances on the market, while her best romances are considerably better than the average for the genre but still a rung downmarket from Georgette Heyer or several rungs down from Jane Austen.

At the end of the previous book, the fourth sister, Daphne repaid a favour from her sister Diana by persuading their father to allow Diana to go hunting with him: she even makes him swear on the bible that he will permit this. Diana has since developed a passion for hunting almost equal to his own - but because this is not regarded as a ladylike thing to do, she disguises herself as a young man.

Diana has no interest in men or marriage. At one point having become lost in a storm while hunting, she has to call at the home of the sophisticated and wealthy Lord Mark Dantry, but finds him terrifying. She also meets the mysterious and equally handsome Jack Emberton, who seems much less intimidating. But does she really want to marry either ?

Like the others in the series, the story includes most of the classic Regency Romance cliches.

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. Even Agatha Raisin felt fast moving compared to this offering. I am sorry that I bought this book.
