Marion Chesney's beloved Daughters of Mannerling series showcases the proud and lovely daughters of Sir William and Lady Beverley--six exceedingly beautiful and privileged young ladies. Isabella's first season in London is a disaster, with not a single offer of marriage. All possible suitors find her dull, while she believes none of the contenders for her affections are worth catching. Making matters worse, her father gambles away the family fortune and their opulent estate at Mannerling to the roguish Mr. Judd. Scheming to recover Mannerling, Isabella plays for Mr. Judd's affections. But complications arise when romance kindles between the haughty Isabella and the dashing Irish Viscount Fitzpatrick--who sees the inner beauty Isabella tries so hard to disguise. Chesney's enchanting tale is pure joy from beginning to end. Narrator Jill Tanner provides a dignified voice for the proud Isabella as she grapples with difficult choices that will change her family forever.

    " This was an amazon deal of the day when I decided to buy it but, even at $1.99 it was a waste of money. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leandra | 2/2/2014

    " Marion Chesney is the ULTIMATE regency England writer!!! In my humble opinion anyway... I'm on a quest to find her books in hardback, which is difficult, but fun, since most of them are old library books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marya | 1/21/2014

    " two and a half stars really "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 1/20/2014

    " It was fun, predictable and an easy read. It entertained more than anything else. I learned much about customs and mores of the period. I like Marion Chesney's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hillary | 1/12/2014

    " Decent entertainment - even a little bit of a surprise at the end that launches the sequels. Predictable romance but the setting and descriptions make up for it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Petrie | 1/6/2014

    " Chesney is good at introducing the readers to a time in England when the classes were so distinct, when people knew what was best for them. She is a comedic writer capable of making anyone lovable if she so desires. I adore all of her books and have read them over and over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brooke | 1/5/2014

    " Probably more like 2.5 stars. The storyline was engaging and I like the Gothic twist to a Regency novel, but the writing was just so-so, a little too contrived. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/3/2013

    " As always, Marion Chesney develops interesting characters in her historical fiction series. The "Beverley Pride" and the obsession with Mannerling are understandable emotions even in modern times, and the evolution of the characters is enjoyable to see. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla Amon | 11/24/2013

    " A fun, light read with Austenian flair. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krisette Spangler | 9/29/2013

    " Ridiculous dialogue,one dimensional characters, and a transparent plot, what more can I say? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Regina Roberts | 3/3/2013

    " This book was a good read...it was fast....it was fun! Enjoyed "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/26/2013

    " Fun, light, easy read. For when you don't want to think too much... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miss Mouse | 12/21/2012

    " Mannerling #1 I really enjoyed this book, and looked forward to the next in the series. It was a well-written, historical romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 12/11/2012

    " This one is good if you are looking for a quick, predictable but clean regency romanance. As there are 5 sisters, there are probably five more stories just like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amie | 11/24/2012

    " This book was a cute Regency era romance. The funny thing is, on my kindle it has a different cover. I would of never even looked twice had it this cover! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise | 11/4/2012

    " Fun twist on romance-love for a house, and how true love triumps. Also good to see the consequences of gambling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 7/9/2012

    " One demential characters and predictable, redundant plot. Sadly, certainly not the worst book I've ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 6/10/2012

    " I love Marion Chesney because her stories are short and funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/18/2012

    " This is how I found out about Marion Chesney. Loved this plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cortney | 5/14/2012

    " This is a good book if you want a quick, easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shemightbegiant | 4/27/2012

    " Yet another formulaic Marion Chesney Regency romance. Delightfully entertaining and undemanding. The first in the Daughters of Mannerling Series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah Victoria Katherine | 2/28/2012

    " The Daughters of Mannerling is a very cute series. The Banishment is the first book in the series and the one I like best (of this series). A very quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 5/30/2011

    " Not as good as her others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 3/27/2011

    " A nice fluffy read. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/3/2011

    " London upper curst girl wants to be a detective. pretty good- I would read another in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/22/2011

    " This is the second in a funny, silly series of Edwardian mysteries. It's almost like Perils of Pauline - Lady Rose is first kidnapped, then sent to an insane asylum, and this is before the first murder. It all works out, of course, even though Rose is almost killed herself twice before the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 7/30/2010

    " fun - Rose is getting a little irritating but still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felicia | 9/8/2009

    " Again, enjoyable, although Rose's behavior is getting a little irritating. Some fun stuff, not a crazy complex mystery but good light fun. Very sparse writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikala | 3/8/2009

    " I loved this book, was hilarious however the lead characters were typical of this kind of novel. The plot was good and thankfully non predictable. I was disappointed with the ending....didnt really have one, it just finished, could have been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AzuresHeart | 10/26/2008

    " Nice quick read again... but I felt that there was one too many plots going on in that one.... You felt like you were running all around on this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina (Boupie) | 9/18/2008

    " I did not like this one as much as the first two. I think I will finish the rest of this series next month as I have lost interest in it a little bit. Still a very quick read and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 8/25/2008

    " This is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. This series is by the same author as the Hamish MacBeth and Agatha Raisin books, she just changed her name a bit (instead of MC Beaton). It's a good light read for lovers of historical mystery, set in the early part of the 20th century in England. "
