'Being the first volume of the Six Sisters', this is a clever Regency romance. Minerva Armitage is the eldest daughter of the Reverend Charles Armitage, a hunting lover vicar, with six daughters and two sons. When he needs money to educate his sons, it is a choice between selling one of his hunters (unthinkable!) or marrying one of his daughters to a wealthy man. Will Minerva, more used to parish visiting than flirting, be able to catch a wealthy husband? This has some highly unsuitable rakes, a handsome and titled hero (of course) and the hilarious Lady Godolphin, a not very suitable chaperone. This is a clever, humorous and well paced novel, which will make you want to read on in the series.

Maria Are these books suitable for my 11 year old daughter who has a reading age way beyond her years? I struggle to find books for her to read that don't involve sex violence or the occult.

Susan Hmmm, it is always a matter of personal choice, but they are romances and there is mention of adult activities - I'm trying to think of a nice way to put that! At 11, maybe she is a little young. Why not try the authors mysteries (Hamish Macbeth for example), or how about Agatha Christie? When I was first starting out on adult books I was also about 11 and I adored Christie's books, which were like adult Enid Blyton stories.
