Kurzbeschreibung

Whether dressed in her finery or disguised as a frump, he wanted her just the same!

How can plain Frederica withstand a Season's scrutiny after the five beauties before her have married so magnificently? The only solution is to run away from home...

Disguised as a chambermaid, Freddie soon finds her way into the household of the fashionable Duke of Pembury. But the wild gentleman is soon on to her tricks and finds himself escorting Freddie back to London, where, once again on the marriage mart, her sisters make over the tomboyish runaway until even she cannot recognise herself!

But a certain gentleman can, and so it would seem that Freddie is not fated to be plain - or unmarried - after all....

Frederica ist das Nesthäkchen der Familie und leider aus der Art geschlagen. Nicht wirklich hässlich ist sie jedoch die Armitage Tochter, die einfach nur Durchschnitt ist. Als ihr Vater ihr mitteilt, dass sie bald aus dem Seminar für junge Damen nach Hause kommen soll um bei ihrer neuen Mutter zu leben (Mrs Armitage ist durch ihre Medikamentensucht gestorben – sie ist im Wahn ertrunken). Was dem Fass den Boden ausschlägt ist, dass die Verlobte ihres Vaters ihr „ehemaliges“, d.h. dank verborgener Verlobung immer noch arbeitende Dienstmädchen ist. Die scheue Freddie beschließt, dass es an der Zeit ist, endlich so kühn zu sein wie ihre Schwestern und ihr Schicksal in die eigene Hand zu nehmen. Sie verlässt das Internat und macht sich auf den Weg um irgendwo als Dienstmädchen zu arbeiten. Kurz bevor sie sich als Dienstmädchen bewerben kann, trifft sie ihren zukünftigen Arbeitgeber noch als junge Dame. Die Begegnung läuft für den Duke recht ereignislos, sieht er in ihr doch nur einen Backfisch, der nicht besonders hübsch ist. Frederica nimmt sich dieses Zusammentreffen auch nicht zu sehr zu Herzen, denn wann hat man schon einmal davon geöhrt, dass ein Duke einem einfachen Zimmermädchen Aufmerksamkeit schenkt? Er würde sie sicher nicht erkennen. Pech nur, dass sie ihm Nachts in seiner Bibliothek begegnet und er sie sofort als die junge Ausreißerin erkennt. Sie fliegt endgültig auf, als Lady Godolphin als Hausgast anreist und Freddie sofort erkennt.

Aus dieser Story hätte man so viel machen können! Leider ist es das kürzeste Buch der Reihe und ließt sich, als wäre der Autorin zwei Wochen vor Abgabetermin eingefallen, dass sie noch ein Buch schreiben muss.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Frederica, the ugly duckling of the Six Sisters, runs away from Hopeworth 16. März 2006
Von Lawrance Bernabo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Marion Chesney's series "The Six Sisters" concludes with "Frederica in Fashion" (our library only had the first five volumes, so I had to buy this one; fortunately, it is the originally hardback edition, so we can now donate it so our library will have the complete set). As readers of this series of romances set in Regency England already know, Frederica is the youngest daughter of the Reverend Armitage, the country vicar who spends most of his time drinking and hunting. Freddie is considered the ugly duckling of the family, although when she was younger it seemed she might turn into a beauty. Now she is timid and shy, hiding herself behind dowdy clothes and a less than genteel manner.

Usually what happens at this point is that the reverend needs money for some reason having to do with hunting, but this time Chesney takes a different tack because following the death of his wife the vicar announces his intention to marry again, having selected Sarah Millet, the young vicarage maid. Freddie's five older sisters, all of whom have wildly successful marriages (from both the standpoint of money and love), gather for a council of war on how to bring Frederica into fashion (hence, the title). But while each sister is busy trying to find a husband for her, Frederica decides to bolt before she is sent off to Season in London. In fact, that is where the novel begins, with Freddie leaving a letter for Minerva that reads in part: "since there is no hope of my securing an Eligible Parit due to my sad lack of looks...I am Running Away." Then she escapes.

Of course, the idea that Frederica is an ugly duckling tells you where this one is going, and Chesney certainly plays with the idea that the youngest of the Armitage girls might actually make the best match of the bunch. Disguised as a chambermaid, Frederica ends up working as a chambermaid in the household of the Duke of Pembury (a.k.a. the "Wicked Duke"), who sees through her disguise and takes her to London for the Season she never wanted to have. But once there, the young Miss Armitage fails to hold his interest because every time he sees her she either has her head in a book or is sitting, dumb and embarrassed, at his dinner table. Then there is occasion for a kiss that changes everything.

Readers of the series who have become accustomed to the period details of the earlier novels will find more of the same here as Chesney presents a realistic depiction of 19th century England, even as she is having great fun with her characters. The plots remain rather intricate and her affection for the characters is clear from start to finish. Plus, at the end of this one she brings the Armitage family together so that as they celebrate the betrothal of the sixth and final sister we can once again have Annabelle find a way to be the center of attention and for Lady Godolphin to get in a final joke about "how some folks always get the words wrong!" This is a fun little series and while no one is arguing Chesney is on the same level as Jane Austen, there is nothing wrong with someone who emphasizes the comedy a bit more than the romance in such period pieces.

3.0 von 5 Sternen quite a taking little thing 18. Juni 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I must say that even though the writing was not of the best quality at times, I found the plot interesting and Frederica a sympathetic character. There is something about this series that I like very much. Even though each of the sisters has a flaw (Anabelle can be quite annoying), each is very sympathetic and the reader can readily enter into the lives of the sister. I loved Frederica because I could relate to her shyness and insecurity. I guess all of us wish we could find a wicked duke who could see through to our inner beauty.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the two best of the six sisters series! 17. März 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the best of the six sisters series. Believable characters, deft storytelling and a charming hero and heroine make this book as well as Diana the Huntress the very best in the six sisters series. Poor lonely Frederica, the youngest of the six famous Armitage sisters (famous for their beauty and legendary for their successful marriages)believes herself to be no beauty at all and have absolutely no charm whatsoever. She decides never to marry as she finds her brothers-in-law to be a trifle overwhelming and prefers to stick her nose into books and her head in the clouds. Frederica runs away from school to find peace and solitude on her own, but her isolated tranquility is shattered when she catches the eye of the Duke of Pembury also known as the Wicked Duke. Don't waste your money on the other sisters' stories.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best.... 17. Juli 2010
Von LuvGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Four was enough, stopped at five. 6. Mai 2010
Von new50 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Have enjoyed this series for what it is; even with the plot pattern that was evident by the second in the series. Amusing, delightful, fun, easy to pick up with the consistent thread from one to the other. Of course, there is a but......felt as if after the first in the series that the subsequent stories were cut short to leave room for more. It got a little frustrating as, in some cases, it seemed as if the conclusion of the book wasn't really complete. If you liked watching Lassie, you'll really enjoy these for your afternoon break. Lassie is fussed over, Lassie goes missing, Lassie is maybe, kind of in trouble, Lassie saves the day, becomes a terrible mess while doing it, and finally in the end is loved, adored and perfectly groomed. Why four stars? It's fun, it's not great; and, there was not enough meat to the read to warrant the price since they tended to finish too soon as a tease to promote the next in the series. Maybe Amazon, the publisher and the author can work out a discount for purchasing an entire series; particularly since a series will always include some previously covered ground. Only real complaint? Maybe since it is so close to Mother's Day - didn't care for the convenient disposal of Mom for the sake of the plot line.
