A Weekend with Mr. Darcy
My first book for 2012 was a romance of Austenian proportions which I thoroughly enjoyed. I listened to the audiobook read by Victoria Brazier. The book A Weekend with Mr. Darcy is the first in an Austen addicts trilogy written by Victoria Connelly.
Katherine Roberts and Robyn Love are both attending a Jane Austen conference at Purley Hall. Katherine is hoping her friend Lorna Warwick will also be there. Instead she meets the handsome Warwick Lawton and has fallen in love. Robyn is trying to no avail to escape her schooltime love Jace who decides to take her to the conference. The conference becomes a time of romance and intrigue fit for a Jane Austen novel with each woman encountering their own Mr. Darcy.
This is a fun and light book with a true Austen-like happy ending. I can recommend this one. Especially with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it would be a perfect read.
