The Darcy Connection by Elizabeth Aston
The Darcy Connection

Denis Beaumont, August 6, 2012

In The Darcy Connection, Mr. Collins of Pride and Prejudice is now the Bishop of Ripon, living with his wife, Charlotte, and their two daughters, who have reached marriageable age. The elder, another Charlotte, is extraordinarily beautiful, and her parents hope her looks and connections will ensure a brilliant marriage. Her sister, Eliza, while not as handsome, possesses a lively intelligence that, in Mr. Collins's opinion, is too like her godmother, Mrs. Darcy.

In London, Charlotte's beauty wins her many admirers, despite her small fortune. But Eliza's wit and attempts to interfere in what she considers an unsuitable marriage for her sister infuriate her family and Charlotte's suitor -- until Eliza herself meets her match. New and old fans alike will relish this witty, romantic, thoroughly entertaining novel from a highly talented author.

This is a very good suite to Pride and Prejudice, this time witht he daughter of Charlotte and Mr Collins, Eliza has the temper of her godmother Elizabeth Darcy independant and not afraid to say what she thinks. She will discover that her little girl romance has nothing to do with adult love and passion. I recommend this book for all Austen Fan. A must...

Denis Beaumont, August 4, 2012

This new Argeneau book from Lynsay Sands is excellent. The story is different from the others and written with a lot of humor, I couldn't stop from laughing when I read this one.

I encourage you to read this one, it's quite different from other vampire serie (there is a scientific reason to it)it's light and funny the perfect summer reading!
