This review is from: The True Darcy Spirit (Paperback)
This is the second book in this series that I have read. I did not like the first but having given it a poor review I wanted to check whether it was an aberration.This book is as poor as the other.
I know the author under two different names, Elizabeth Pewsey and Elizabeth Edmondson and greatly enjoy her work which is character driven and quirky. I suspected, because it is a Jane Austen derivative, that this would be a lighter read than her usual work, but I expected it to be well constructed and it wasn't. The plot was full of coincidences and holes and the characters were two dimensional efforts lent from the romcom cupboard.
Joan Aiken and Jane Aiken Hodge, not to forget Georgette Heyer, have shown that it is possible to write light, frothy yet well constructed historical romances. This is not in their league.
But do not be deterred from trying her books written as Pewsey and Edmondson. They are good.
