    One thought on “The Ghost and Lady Alice”

    1. Although Marion Chesney liked to refer to the supernatural and superstitions in her books, she seldom utilized a full fledged ghost This was probably the only one I ve read by her that had a ghost as the main character I don t know if intercrossing Regency romance with ghosts was the in thing back in the day I believe Sandra Heath also liked to have ghostly interactions in her plots.The thing with the older supernatural books is that the ghostly phenomenon is never full explained or carried out [...]

    2. This is first and foremost a Regency romance but it is also a ghost story It is charming, light hearted and poignant and made me cry as well as laugh Alice is a scullery maid in a Duke s household The servants are not treated that well and Alice has little food and less rest One night she creeps out of bed and goes and sits in the banqueting hall where the ghost of the 8th Duke appears and starts talking to her Alice is intrigued especially when he takes her hand and he feels real and alive and [...]

    3. I also reviewed this title on my blog Ishari s Bookshelf I ve read quite a bit of Marion Chesney s Regency romancesI love a good Regency I grew up reading them and I love the period aristocracy etcThat said, I was kind of disappointed by The Ghost and Lady Alice I thought the premise was interesting Alice is a scullery maid who looks to the ghost of the deceased Eighth Duke of Haversham to rescue her from her plight And the waylove blossoms I started the book with high hopes, but instead found f [...]

    4. The book itself was a quick read, and had a different premise ghost and living person fall in love I, being the logical person that I am sometimes too analytical , found myself wondering if they do end up together what would happen in years to come when she aged and he didn t Would the ghost still love an 80 year old woman when he himself would remain around 30 I think the book would have been much better if, somehow, he had fully materialized and was allowed to live completely alongside her.

    5. Not her best but sweetThis book to be great would have had to have been a lot longer so as to have time to explain a few things I felt Alice was very sweet and the Duke, the ghostly Duke , was a decent hero However I think that Ms Beaton has other works far better than this one.

    6. Chesney Beaton is my favorite at filling life and humanity into simple roles Lowest scullery maid Alice wishes kind Duke of Haversham portrait back to life, and their nights are filled while he teaches her to become a Lady in his mistress hideaway.

    7. A charming Regency ghost storyAlice Lovesey is a lowly and much abused scullery maid who has no recollection of her life prior to being brought to Wadham Hall After seven lonely, weary years, she makes her first foray out of the kitchen and encounters the ghost of the Eighth Duke of Haversham.The ghost, Gervase, takes her to a hidden room and provides her with food and clothing and teaches her how to act and speak, then takes her to London to seek a husband.The story is filled with adventures an [...]

    8. from Alice and the long deceased Eighth Duke of Haversham met quite accidentally one night as she gazed at his portrait and called upon someone to save her from her miserable life as a servant in the home of the cruel Tenth Duke While trying to find a rich husband for her, they fall in love.This may have been one of the first adult romances I ever read I was probably about 12 or 13 It is historical and has a ghost, but it is far from scary or gothic The reader will root for Alice and her duke, t [...]

    9. This really reminded me of a Georgette Heyer These Old Shades the Georgian hero s mannerisms and speech and the poor scullery maid who becomes the toast of the ton The similarities stop there the hero is a ghost, the scullery maid isn t really French, etc But damme, it was a quck amusing read.

    10. Such a sweet story and it was an interesting twist for Chesney s main hero to be a ghost

    11. A rather cheesy and gothic read Makes me think of Northanger Abbey and Catherine s obsession with horrid novels.

    12. EntertainingI thoroughly enjoyed this book It was light entertainment at its best This is a ghost story with a difference.

    13. Another madcap Regency romance filled with lecherous lords and young innocent women with purity as their mantle for entry into the ton A quick, easy read that is sure to entertain.
