Happy Birthday Mr Darcy by Victoria Connelly
You are cordially invited to a wedding at Purley Hall...
It’s the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice' but it’s also a special year for Katherine Roberts and Warwick Lawton because they’re getting married.
But can Katherine put aside her fear about the future and can Warwick put his pen down long enough to actually make it up the aisle?
'Happy Birthday, Mr Darcy' is the fifth book in the Austen Addicts series - a light-hearted novella which follows 'A Weekend with Mr Darcy', 'The Perfect Hero' ('Dreaming of Mr Darcy'), 'Mr Darcy Forever' and 'Christmas with Mr Darcy'. The main characters Katherine Roberts and Warwick Lawton are due to be married at Purley Hall, where the romance began, a beautiful setting which will provide the perfect backdrop for the wedding, especially as the guests are being asked to dress in period outfits. With the perfect setting and day planned out, is everything and everyone ready for the wedding of the year??
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.
I received this eBook from the author in return for an honest review.
