    Beloved Diana, originally titled The Tenant of Chesdene Manor, is an easy predictable Regency. Wait a minute. Now that I think of it, I can’t remember what year the story took place. I don’t remember the Napoleonic War, Prinny or anything that would frame this historical from 1811-1820. What there is, is a slow-moving but compelling little mystery that the original title better suits. At the heart of the story is the Tenant of Chesdene Manor. It was not hard to guess his true identity but I kept Beloved Diana, originally titled The Tenant of Chesdene Manor, is an easy predictable Regency. Wait a minute.

It was not hard to guess his true identity but I kept reading because I wanted to see when all the other characters figured it out. Beloved Diana and her mother, Lady Chalfant. The tenant’s closest friend, Jack Chertsey. Beloved Diana’s BFF Irene and her brother, Mark. The so-called villain. And others. Did I mention that I simply enjoyed Mrs. Ley’s style of writing? As Georgette Heyer once said, “I ought to be shot for writing such nonsense, but it’s unquestionably good escapist literature”. That it is.

    Mary-Sue, a sweet, predictable girl sporting 'brown hair with tints of red in it'. This is where I end my review because from here on nothing I say would be kind. Until I have published a better book than that I cannot allow myself to speak disdainfully of others who have done what I haven't.

    Very good. The ending went a bit too fast but still nicely done.

    Better than the others that I read by Ley. More character than description.
