So when I heard she wrote "Christmas with Mr. Darcy" I couldn't wait to read it. It was my very first ebook and it was a lovely experience. All the charachters from the previous books come back together again and it felt like being reunited with old friends. The charachters are so lovable and Victoria makes you feel like you really know them.
"Christmas with Mr. Darcy" is funny and romantic and keeps you longing for more. More about all these lovely characters and their passion for Jane Austen.
If you love Christmas and Jane Austen, this book is for you!
A fabulous cast of characters that are so well written, that they could all easily have their own spin off books that would make great reads too. I can think of nothing better as a reader than to attend a Jane Austen Conference and how magical that would be at Christmas.
In Victoria Connelly's latest indie publication all the heroes and heroines of her Austen Addicts' Trilogy gather together to celebrate Christmas as well as their favourite author, Jane Austen. The great reunion takes place at Purley Hall in Hampshire because renowned actress, Dame Pamela Harcourt, is holding a special Jane Austen Conference.
Christmas is being celebrated in style and everybody's there: Katherine and Warwick, Robyn and Dan, Kay, Adam and Gemma, and Sarah and Mia. But, when the rare first edition of Pride and Prejudice Dame Pamela has recently bought goes missing, the guests have to forget the fun and games and turn detective...
The fun and games? Team contests, meetings with the cast of recent adaptations, watching Austen movies or series and discussing them among others. Those discussions were great fun to me: to read what Austen fans have to say after watching the movies or series scheduled at the Conference was like watching me and my Janeite friends in a mirror. The lady guests start talking animatedly about who the perfect new Mr Knightley , Mr Darcy or Captain Wentworth may be: Richard Armitage? Henry Cavill? Well, it was as if Victoria had turned us members of the enthusiastic community of Austenites into characters of her book (me included!) and our chatterings about Austen movies and favourite actors were tranferred from the online forums or from our sitting rooms to the guests of the splendid country mansion.
I also appreciated the addition of a bit of mystery in the style of the best whodunnit novels. There is no Poirot, no Miss Marple, but the puzzling situation is brilliantly solved by the lovely guests . Who's guilty of all the thefts taking place at the Conference?
Being snowed in is not a very pleasant situation in my personal experience , instead the snowy landscape adds a touch of fairy powder to the story. Would you mind being caught in in a wonderful mansion in Hampshire with all the comfort you need and in the best company you can wish? I'm sure you wouldn't complain. Especially after winning your own Mr Darcy and sharing the experience with him , as Katherine, Robyn or Kay do.
Grab your copy of Christmas with Mr Darcy and get ready to read it near the fire and under the Christmas tree. I bet you'll love it.
