Darcy's Awakening: A Pride and Prejudice VariationDarcy's Awakening: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Georgina Young-Ellis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Bennet is in mourning, and darcy is unofficially engaged toCaroline Bingkey when they meet at the Meryton Assembly. So how can they ever reach a happy ending.
Hopefully one day I will read this author's story of the Colonel and Mary and as a main story and not just as a background mention in some of her books.
An enjoyable, well-written story

London Rain (Josephine Tey, #6)London Rain by Nicola Upson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It's 1937 and the country is preparing for the coronation of the king, but DCI Penrose's schedule is disrupted when he is called out to the murder of one of the BBC's broadcasters. But that is not the last of the murders.
In the end the story became a decent mystery but the pace was much to slow and certainly too much about the personal life of Tey.
