In the sleepy village of Hawcombe Prior, five young ladies of the local book society are reading a salacious romance called Pride and Prejudice. Upon finishing the book, the ladies race to find their own Mr. Darcy, and the handsome, mysterious Darius Wainwright is the perfect mark.
Justina Penny can’t understand why her fellow Belles are starry-eyed in the newcomer’s arrogant presence. But if the town’s only eligible bachelor marries anyone, it should be her sweet, beautiful sister. And it’s up to Justina to make it happen. How could this plan possibly go wrong?
This book was just delightful 😀 The pages flew by and I was charmed by it. I do hope all the books in this series will be as good.
It’s a book about a book club (yay), and they are reading Pride and Prejudice. And the author weaves her spell and the book reads a bit like PP then too. More fun for me.
Our heroine is, gods, crazy! Ha, in a good way. I loved her. She did all the wrong things, said the wrong things, she just wanted to have fun, to lose her bonnet and get her petticoats dirty by jumping in a puddle. Justine was a great heroine.
Darius does not know what to do with her. He is more the Mr Darcy kind of guy, quiet, reserved, but he sure got to me at once too. They bring out the best in each other, yes even when bickering.
Great couple, fun things happening, a bit of Pride and Prejudice, and more promised as the rest of the book club will find love too. I can’t wait.
An amusing and charming book. Finished it in a day.
