HASH(0xa4afe774) out of 5 stars The Best of the Six Sisters March 15 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Diana, hands down, has got to be the best of the Six Sisters - and the Six Sisters the best of all Chesney's series. This sister is like a stormy "breath of fresh air" unwilling to give up the freedoms of a tomboy until she learns a lesson to break her heart, though not her spirit.
The predicaments she lands herself in with much alacrity from Lord Mark Dantry, are extremely amusing and highly original. And the chemistry between the two is better than Minerva and Sylvester. Dantry is a rake on the verge of reform when he meets his match in Diana, a veritable goddess, warring for his heart.
This installment presents a full tapestry of life in the Regency period as it shifts back and forth from the country to London and back again. All the familiar characters and married sisters are back to contribute to an overall delightful experience. Though Minerva is hailed as the favorite of the six by many, read Annabelle, Deirdre, and Daphne simply to appreciate getting to Diana.

HASH(0xa48f20f0) out of 5 stars One of the two best of the six sisters series! March 17 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best of the six sisters series. Believable characters, charming escapades and deft storytelling make this and Frederica in Fashion(the two youngest sisters) the two best in the six sisters series. Diana only lives for the hunt and may do so provided she dresses as a man. But what she hadn't counted on was when she meets the tall fair Lord Dantry in her man's disguise, she never in her entire life wanted to be a woman more than at that moment. Don't waste your money on the other sisters stories.

HASH(0xa4a46a80) out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ! Oct. 16 2000
By Ruth A. Caldwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marion Chesney has a marvelous sense of humor; her storytelling is amazing. She combines a lot of mystery with a smidgen of romance. This is about the 25th of her novels (also writes as M.C.Beaton) I've read and one of my favorites! Our heroine, Diana, hates the idea of being a lady preferring the hunt, with her father's blessing...at first. He now feels she MUST become a lady and this is the beginning of the headstrong Diana's escapades! Can she disguise herself as a boy a get away with it?

HASH(0xa4ab88e8) out of 5 stars Diana goes on a hunt for her desires June 3 2015
By Michelle Boytim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the 5th book in the Six Sisters series. Diana is mad for hunting like her father and her sister extracted a promise from him that convinced him to let her dress like a man so she can participate. On one hunt, she gets separated in a storm and ends up at the stately home of Lord Dantrey. Still posing as a man, he invites her to stay and she talks about her wish to travel to London. He invites Diana along on a visit with him. Things get complicated, when a card gambling rake named Jack decides to court her, thinking he can extort funds from her wealthy relations. Diana escapes from her aunt and meets up with Dantrey in London, wearing her brother’s clothes. Much mischief ensues as Diana’s masquerade causes trouble, as does Jack’s interest in her. Unlike the prior books there is a tragedy that affects the whole family, but in the end, things do work out for Diana.

HASH(0xa4c345b8) out of 5 stars Great story. Aug. 10 2015
By Lori S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Diana is the one daughter who enjoys dressing like a man and going hunting until her father's friend recognizes her. Now her father wants to send her away with her aunt to have a Season and the one thing Diana doesn't want is that. She still wants her freedom and finds it by means of Lord Dantry. She thinks he believes her disguise as a man even though he figured it out long ago.
The story is very well told. You are taken through Diana and her escapades as "man" and how she falls for her own hero.
