Kurzbeschreibung

When "Big Tim" Creighton spies the mincing fop headed toward Forsaken Ranch, he is appalled. Thankful his boss isn't around to witness the arrival of his kin, Tim decides he'll turn "Fancy Pants" Hathwell into a man worthy of respect.

Lady Sydney Hathwell never intended to don men's attire, but when her uncle mistakenly assumed she was a male, the answer to her problems seemed clear. Her disguise as "Syd" was meant to be temporary...but the arranged marriage she's fleeing, her uncle's attitude toward the fairer sex--and her own pride--compel her to continue the guise far longer than she had intended.

When her deception is exposed, will she be forced to abandon her hopes for family...and true love?

Synopsis

Fancy Pants Hathwell tries to prove she's a "man" on the ranch before her true identity is discovered.

Das eine Frau sich als Mann ausgibt ist nicht gerade neu, aber die Umsetzung in "Fancy Pants" fand ich sehr vergnüglich. Der Schreibstil von Cathy Marie Hake ist sehr gut und die Charaktere sind so anschaulich, dass man viel zu lachen und auch ein bisschen zu schniefen hat. Wer seichte, humorvolle Liebesromane mit christlichen Hintergrund mag, ist mit dem Buch gut bedient. Einen Punkt Abzug gibt es, weil die Geschichte am Schluss etwas nachlässt.

HASH(0x92d02600) von 5 Sternen Dissapointing 2. Juli 2008
Von H. L. Fisher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
*Some Spoilers*
I really wanted to like Fancy Pants as I think that the premise has the promise of a great read. However I was terribly disappointed.
Lady Sydney is an unaffecting and unsympathetic character whose ruse is carried out farther then necessary or probable for a woman of her time. She is waiting to reach her "age of majority" yet I was surprised to find that she is 17 waiting for 18 not 20 waiting for 21 as it most defiantly would have been for that time period. Through the beginning of the book I found her to be ridiculously naïve for her supposed advanced education, making foolish assumptions and basing her impulsive decisions on them. By the end of the book I didn't find that she had improved or grown in many ways at all even though she wrestles with being a sinner and the idea of forgiveness and ultimately accepts salvation.
Big Tim really confuses me. We see ghosts of his background that we are supposed to connect to but are never fully developed; they could be powerful touchstones to explain who he is but fall flat. Tim's attitudes and actions are puzzling; he dislikes Sydney instantly and sets about to pound her into manhood, next we find him in a fury upon discovery of Sydney's true identity, suddenly he is leading her to Christ then before we know it he is thoroughly and possessively in love with her and on the way to the alter. For a man who is a respected Christian member of the community- loved by all- he comes off to me as angry, obstinate and undesirable marriage material.
The conclusion of the story and developing romance is positively rushed; the much anticipated arrival of Sydney's uncle is conspicuously lacking and the triumph over lurking evil simplistic, insufficient and anticlimactic.
Throughout Fancy Pants I was thrown out of the story by the plentiful anachronisms, words, phrases, facts and ideas that are out of place for their time. Most would say that it is a little thing and can be ignored but for me it was jarring as was the text arrangement and lack of page breaks. Overall I believe Fancy Pants could have been better written and plotted with warmer characters and believable events.

HASH(0x92d02654) von 5 Sternen Good, Bad, Worse, Worst 20. August 2010
Von M. Dougherty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I borrowed this book from the library on a whim - looking for a new Christian author I might like. I began liking the book, then loved it, then disliked it, then kind of kept reading hoping it would get better, and finally quit reading 20 pages or so from the end. I don't even care how it ended. For all I care, Hume might come and claim Sydney as his bride and steal her away and even THAT would be a better ending than ANYTHING Hake was clearly planning.

*spoilers*
I am so bummed about this. All I want to find is a Christian author who writes appealingly, and well, not so...ooey-gooey? What's the word...sugar! Tim calls Syd "sugar" throughout the second half of the book, and that's exactly what this is: a sugar-coated treatise on how to be a Christian and get to Heaven. First of all, for a "Christian", Tim is the least likeable character I have read in a long time. From the first moment, he behaves abominably. And there's NO excuse for behaving so poorly to another human being. Guess how many times he apologizes for any of his actions in the entire book. Zero. Not once. Apparently everything he does and says gets a free pass because he's a God-loving man just trying to "make something" out of Fancy Pants. I found his lack of manners and, as Syd calls it, "couth", unbearable. Even in 1890 Texas, men could've been expected to be kinder toward a young boy and/or a young lady. Even after Velma repeatedly berates Tim for his actions (the only highlight of this entire book, because he and his disgusting ego finally get taken down a notch), he doesn't even begin to make up for them. You know what happens? He sees a girl crying in her sleep (because apparently a girl crying while awake is just one of those feminine wiles used to manipulate) and is suddenly overcome with compassion and a desire to bring her to the Lord.

Which is hilarious. Because if Tim has acted like anything up until that point, it's NOT a Christian. Put plainly, Tim is an ass. In fact, I found pretty much all of Sydney's actions (remember, she's the non-Christian) to be justifiable and right, and pretty much all of Tim's to be terrible and arrogant.

I like Sydney for the first half of the book. She's got gumption, and pride, and grit, and she's willing to go through a whole lot. Then her secret is spilled...and it all goes downhill. Suddenly she is apologizing on every other page for behaving so horribly. She's now known as a woman, and she's lost all of her fire. She only finally gets mad (and actually wins some arguments) with Tim when she decides to leave because he doesn't want her. Why does she slip so quickly into being such a baby? You know what would've made her way more awesome? If she had actually left. Actually taken up a post somewhere and been her own woman for a few months. Then at least she would've proved to Tim that she's not hopeless on her own. Instead, she whimpers back with him and flits and flounces until he finally (big surprise) manages to convert her.

Which, by the way, is the worst thing of all Christian books. Can't someone just write a Christian book without a conversion? Or better yet, if you have a conversion story, how about NOT insulting every form of religion that the person is converting away from? We get it - there's a bunch of Christians in the world who don't believe in rituals and other forms of "organization" (oh my goodness the evil word!). But for the millions and millions of Christians in the world who DO believe in rituals and other forms of organizations, these authors do a really good job of alienating them.

Now to the nitty-gritty:

1. Here are two motifs I have never read in a Christian western: A man hates women because his wife died, and hookers are actually really nice women just trying to make it.

Oh wait. I've read those motifs in EVERY CHRISTIAN WESTERN EVER WRITTEN. Find new subplots. Especially the dead wife one - seriously, that has been beaten to death (pun intended). What would've made Tim better? If he just hated women. For no reason other than he thought they were useless. Then the actual actions by Sydney would've been a counterattack to his beliefs, and the whole book would've MEANT SOMETHING.

2. Hake makes excuses for all of Tim's actions and statements, and seems to think that all "English manners" are some kind of disease from which Sydney is rescued. You know, those despicable manners like eating with a fork and knife, or cleaning up after oneself, or being nice to a stranger. Those silly English and their proper ways of doing things.

3. I don't recall ever knowing what month it was until page 287. Previous to the knowledge that it is June, we are only told that January (the day Sydney reaches her majority) is "a long way away". Thanks for the heads up, Hake.

4. Hake introduces new character in the last few chapters of the book. This is a grave, grave mistake that all published authors should know. Alex Denton, Milton Baumgartner...I don't care if they're minor characters. Hake could've easily used any other male we'd met earlier in the book. Okay, I'm not being fair. Maybe they were there earlier and I forgot them. But I don't care enough to go back and double check.

5. I get the feeling Hake never read her writing aloud. If she had, she would've noticed that Tim addresses Syd as 'kid' way too often. We get it. He thinks of the male Syd as a child. Actually, the book Semantic Antics says that the use of 'kid' as an informal form of address wasn't even really around until the 1920s, and before that, it was used as a term of endearment for talented young thieves. So that brings up another point: the authentic quality of the writing left much to be desired.

Okay so here's the romance in a nutshell:

Tim: *says something incredibly rude and derogatory*

Boy Syd: What you just said was incredibly rude and derogatory!

Tim: So what? Life is hard, get over it stupid baby.

*Tim walks in on Sydney in the bath*

Tim: Dude, you're a girl!

Girl Syd: Ha, betcha feel bad for being such a jerk to me.

Tim: Not really, this just makes it easier to be heavy-handed and demanding. You're a girl, so you're worthless. Just like I always thought.

Girl Syd: *Vows not to be worthless. Apologizes for her actions.*

Everyone but Tim: It's okay.

Tim: It's not okay.

Girl Syd: *Apologizes*

Tim: It's not okay.

Girl Syd: *Apologizes*

Tim: It's not okay.

Girl Syd: *Tries to do something.*

Tim: You can't do that.

Girl Syd: *Tries to do something.*

Tim: You can't do that.

Girl Syd: *Tries to do something.*

Tim: You can't do that.

Girl Syd: Since you are an ass, I'm leaving. *Leaves*

Tim: *Manipulates her back to the house*

Girl Syd: Aww, he's so nice.

Tim: God made me nice.

Girl Syd: You're right! Your God is awesome and none of the religion I've ever been taught means anything.

Tim: Now that you're a real Christian, we can finally get hitched, even though I'm still a jerk, I'll still never let you win a fight, and I'll still never apologize for anything I say or do.

HASH(0x92d02a8c) von 5 Sternen terrific amusing inspirational historical romance 8. September 2007
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In 1889 following the death of her father, Lady Sydney Hathwell, escorted by her Aunt Serena leaves England to join her American fiancé Rexall Hume in New York. However, he agrees to her insistence of an acceptable period of mourning before they marry. One year and one day later, Rexall demands they wed, but Sydney knows they do not suit.

Sydney receives a telegram from her Uncle Fuller, who was unaware he had living relatives until he got her note. He invites his nephew to live on his Forsaken Ranch in Gooding, Texas where he explained no human females reside. With Hume's unknowing help disguised as a boy she goes to the ranch. Her uncle is away and the ranch foreman widower "Big Tim" Creighton thinks his boss will be disappointed with his foppish nephew. He decides to change this "FANCY PANTS" into a real man though he also hopes to drive his lordship back across the content and ocean. Instead Lord Sydney begins to fall in love as she sees the vulnerable caring side of Big Tim, but fears once Uncle Fuller learns he has a niece he will kick her out, leaving her vulnerable to Rexall.

This is a terrific amusing inspirational historical romance. Sydney is a fabulous nephew as the ranch hands led by Big Tim struggle to toughen up the girly boy going so far as to take her to a brothel. Big Tim in many ways is the more interesting protagonist as he began to fall in love with her when she was an English sissy. The story line is intelligent and fun to read because Hume is not a nasty villain as he persists in marrying Sydney although she rejects them as unsuited (could his story be next?). Cathy Marie Hake has written a droll late nineteenth century tale that sub-genre readers will cherish.

HASH(0x92d02e28) von 5 Sternen Fancy Pants takes you on an adventure 4. September 2007
Von Mimi N - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Sydney chooses to go a different path than society would deem proper. She heads to her uncle's farm and from the moment she reaches it, she has to prove to the rest of the cowboys she's man enough for the job. She meets Tim who runs the farm in her uncle's absence. He's prepared to make a man out of her and the fun begins! When Sydney's secret is revealed, it's an adventure to find out who's more stubborn Tim or Sydney.

Cathy has done it again. As you read this story you will find yourself laughing out loud. She seems to have an amazing grasp on the male mind and uses Sydney to reveal that to us. Women should be such good studies of how men think. Cathy also has done a lot of research into what life was like back in the Wild West and it shows through in her writing.

This is a book that was hard to put down and was able to be read in a couple days!!

HASH(0x92d02f24) von 5 Sternen What a disappointment! 29. Dezember 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book starts really well and even lives up to that promise for about 75% of the way through. At that point however, the author apparently found God and begins to preach. It's as though someone else took over writing the book - night and day. The strong heroine is suddenly Miss Wimp, and everyone runs around singin' hallelujah. I had really looked forward to reading the rest of this book, but I only made it to 87% before I just gave up in disgust.

It has been my practice in the past to only write reviews when I had something nice to say. For this one, I feel like the author really let me down, and I'm making an exception. The first part of the book is a 5; the last quarter is so bad, it doesn't even deserve 1 star. And I might mention that the formatting was all over the map - what a mess!
