I really enjoyed this book. It was great to return to Purley Hall for such a happy occasion Through Connelly's prose it was easy to picture the scene and I would of loved to be part of the big day. It is evident throughout her books that she is a true Austen fan, with quotes and references to Austen's books throughout her stories, all of which make the stories more special.
As the book is about the wedding of two main characters, it is great to catch up with many of the other characters which the readers have met throughout this series as they return as guests to the wedding.
This book is part of a series and although it is great to read them in order, meeting each character and following Katherine and Warwick through their romance, this book could be read as a standalone. Although I am sure that if this is the first book in the series that you have read, it won't be your last as you will be buying the rest of the series and starting from the beginning.
I am hoping that Connelly will be publishing the next installment in this fantastic series soon as I love these characters and can't wait to find out what happens next.
This book tells of the wedding of Katherine Roberts and Warwick Lawton and it takes place at none other than Purley Hall with guests awash with muslin, bonnets and cravats.
Dame Pamela is in her element with the wedding being held at Purley Hall.
Robyn who is PA to Dame Pamela is helping with the wedding preparations and is the maid of honour for Katherine and settling into her role as mother to Cassandra and wife to the handsome Dan in Horseshoe Cottage.
Dan is Warwick's best man and has lots to do including dealing with a demanding customer who requires `riding' lessons, Carmel Hudson.
Warwick has a book to complete and a sister Lily who is a well worn cynic when it came to romantic relationships (two failed marriages) to deal with all before his wedding to Katherine.
We catch up with the guests of the wedding, none other than characters from the Austen Addict books: Higgins the loyal butler, Doris Noris, Mrs Soames, Mia Castle, Shelley Quantock, Gabe and Pie.
All of this takes place in 2013 which marks the two hundredth anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. Simply perfect!

This book can be read as a standalone novel but it is also the fifth volume of the author's Austen Addicts series. Fans of the earlier volumes will love this latest instalment. The wedding takes place at Purley Hall - Dame Pamela's country residence and scene of many past Jane Austen conferences. Here are all the ingredients of a light hearted romance with added Austen literary references and glimpses of favourite series characters.
I enjoyed this book very much and it kept me smiling and at times shedding a tear at some of the scenes. It has the feel good factor and will cheer you up if you are feeling down. Great entertainment if you like light romantic novels.
