#190 (#126) - A Weekend with Mr Darcy ~ Victoria Connelly (NEW AUTHOR)
Published by: Avon
Main Characters: Dr Kathryn Roberts and Warrick Lawton
Others characters: Lorna Warwick, Robyn Love
Brief outline of plot: Dr Kathryn Roberts is a Jane Austen expert and has written a couple of books about it. Not only is she an expert, but is a confirmed Janeite and is eagerly anticipating a whole weekend of everything Jane. She's also hoping that her penfriend, the author Lorna Warrick will also be there - whilst they have never met, Kathryn feels that they understand each other very well - which a refreshing change from all dating that has gone wrong in her life thus far. However, will Lorna be what Kathryn is expecting, and how does a Warwick Lawton figure in the picture of all things Jane?
I loved this book (might help that I am a confirmed Janeite myself) - no problems to give it a 5+ rating - my Mother on the other hand hated it, and failed to get to the end. Just shows that you really can't please all of the people all of the time, or even some of the people some of the time!!
