Dreaming of Mr Darcy by Victoria Connelly
A charming romantic modern day tale of a young women who loves the writings of Jane Austen and when she gets a very lucky break she follows her favorite book ‘Persuasion’ to Lyme Regis and sinks everything she has into her dreams.
Buying a bed and breakfast hotel over looking the famous Lyme Regis Cobb.
She has barely finished the first stage of her restoration and decorating, when a chance disaster at a local hotel lands the entire cast of the latest film adaption of Persuasion in her rooms.
Can she resist the stunning Oli who plays her hero Captain Wentworth or will she follow all the other ladies who have fallen for his charms.
A comedy of errors ensues with match making going array and flirtations left, right and centre.
I was rooting for the heroine to choose the right guy as I am sure you will be to.
There are some nice colorful characters that it is so easy to love a real feel good book.
