There's something enchanting about this last book that makes me return to it from time to time. Despite the glaring differences between the hero and heroine: their extreme age difference, their extreme life experience difference, their different stations in life -- there's something almost sweet about it. Frederica is the dreamy, wispy, washed-out looking youngest sister in a family of hailed beauties, and when the book starts, she sets out to change herself and become one of the heroines in her [...]

Delightful old favorite - I've reread this one countless times over the years, but it's been a while. I dug it out for a couple hours of fun and light-hearted brain candy, it never disappoints! Marion Chesney's early romance series (Six Sisters, House for a Season) are light, witty and funny - love revisiting old characters like the hard-drinking, hunting-mad Reverend Armitage, Squire Redford (his best friend and conscience), and the inimitable Malaprop, Lady Godolphin. Good times

It made my day! A perfect witty Regency romance! I am not exaggerating. ;-)I love the whole series, I like all characters, but I love the most this novel. It was a perfect end. I adored Frederica from the beginning (from Minerva) and here she was an ideal heroine. And Duke of Pembury Let's face it - we love this kind of hero.The plot was interesting, with a few funny surprises. And although I knew how it would end up I read it like someone thirsty drinks water.Of course, I would like it had been [...]

Perfectly enjoyable conclusion to the Six Sisters series by Chesney/Beaton. I liked Frederica and the fact that she was truly rather plain compared to her sisters. I also liked her unlikely pairing with a much older and sophisticated Duke. It had the same type vibe as Leonie and The Duke of Avon.

Review - Frederica comes across as really developing into a woman over the course of the novel. At first she is a naive girl, but by the end is really matured and grown. It could, however, have benefited from more involvement from Frederica's sisters. I actually think Frederica in Fashion is my very favourite of the Six Sisters series. In some ways, Beaton writes about the reality of the Regency period a lot more accurately than Julia Quinn or Stephanie Laurens, but at times I do feel her writin [...]

5 stars because it's my favourite of the series!!!Mostly because Frederica is my favourite sister. She has some sense, she's plain speaking and I love the way she says what everyone else is thinking but is to polite to put into words!You see, Frederica promised to be pretty as a child, but some how that promise fizzled out as she grew up. Now she's dreading her first season, where everyone will be disappointed by the plainness of the youngest in a long line of beautiful sisters. And then her fat [...]

2.5 stars. Minerva was the best book in this series. The characters of this book didn't have a realistic feeling to them. Usually It doesn't really bother me when the heroine is 17 years old and the hero is in his thrities, but the way the two were portrayed in this book made the hero come off as positively ancient! It was not believable that the they fell in love in the end.

The usual hasty wrap to a series. The short, vague, bland etc chit gets the duke. Meh.

A lovely ending to a lovely fluffy little series - sheer escapism but none the worse for that - a marshmallow in book form!

The next day she enters the Duke's service as a chambermaid. Drawn into a battle of words between La [...]

This was probably my favorite regency growing up. I loved that Frederica wasn't a standard beauty and that her suitor wanted her to be comfortable in her own skin. I'm actually feeling the need to reread this to the library!

Frederica in Fashion is the last in The Six Sisters series. Frederica is the skinny, shy, bookish sister who doesn't think she will be able to attract a mate like her five older sisters. However, she feels she can't return home--from the horrible finishing school her father has sent her to--because her father is planning on marrying a servant that he has compromised. Frederica never like the servant, let alone let her take over as her "mother." (Mrs. Armitage died in the last novel from an overd [...]

I remember reading a slew of Marion Chesney novels when my children were very young. They were just the right kind of light, mindless entertainment that I needed at the time. I had to read things that were very put-downable books that would not consume me. My free time to read was very limited.Basically, all of the books in any given Marion Chesney series were the same book. She had a formula, and stuck to it. She changed names, places and circumstances, but the basic plots remained identical. T [...]

A satisfying conclusion to the series. I must have liked it since I read it in one sitting. at heThere wasn't really too much to this story. Frederica, the plain Armitage sister, is the only one who hasn't yet married. Unhappy at her school and not wanting to return to her father (who has taken up with a mistress), Frederica runs away from home to become servant in the Duke of Pembrey's household. In this book, though, no problem lasts too long, as Frederica is soon discovered and shipped off to [...]

It makes me sad to realize that there are no more books to read in this very fun series. I truly enjoyed every one of the books, all the colorful characters and wild situations. This book was quite a bit shorter than the rest in the series, and since a lot of the other characters were involved in their own "situations" in this book, I felt Freddie got shortchanged on character development, as did her beau. As a result, by the end of this story, I felt that their story and romance got wrapped up [...]

The last of “The Six Sisters” series, which I have managed to complete in under a month, due to the excellent and wonderful writing style of M.C.Beaton. So, how could this final installment live up to the previous five? In this story, Frederica explores how life is as a servant; although only a temporary role, she realises that life as a servant is not easy and their treatment by those they serve is not always pleasant. This empathy eventually leads to a climatic ending as her feelings for M [...]

Frederica is discovered, but she piques the interest of the Duke. All of the old favorites are back, and after several situations invo [...]

And so the sisters are wed, little Freddie catching herself a Duke. I really enjoyed seeing the girls find love. Frederica is convinced that she's not in looks and therefore runs away from school to be a Chambermaid. Guy Wentwater makes another appearance, this time teaming up with Lady James in a bit to ruin Freddie. I was delighted to see how the vicar's secret engagement to Sarah Miller came to and end but was pleased that the poor Curate then won himself not only a hot wife, but a house and [...]

A happy ending to a good series. This is the 6th and final book in the '6 sisters' series. It has its runaways, its mistaken identities, love, romance, kidnapping - could you ask for more?I really do enjoy whiling away what free time I have with a good book and I can assure you M.C Beaton never lets me down. Another great read, a good conclusion to the series and all in all a warm and fuzzy moment.

The last of the Six Sisters series was really indicative of the time period when a 17 year old school girl and a 30 year old man make a love match. Throughout this series the reader sees a time period when women were rarely educated and, if a part of the ton, were just delightful ornaments that bore heirs and acted as hostess. The best part of the entire series was Lady Godolphin; the author must have had a blast giving this character so many malapropisms.

Frederica was probably the nicest and most deserving of the sisters, but her story is particularly rushed.Couple that with the Sarah story and the Reverend Armitage not getting his comeuppance at all, this last volume fell rather flat. Not to mention the same old villain from book one was back again, yawn.I did like the refreshed covers for this series, but would advise getting them as cheaply as possible - as the writing, though accomplished is nothing to get excited about.

This was my favorite book of the whole series, just because I loved Frederica and her dastardly lover. Seriously the best romance of the whole set. The story was the best too, with the most difference in circumstances. I want to say more, but I'm using my mum's limited Internet. Five stars for my favorite!
