Read as part of the Austen In August reading challenge, The Trouble With Horses was a fun, quick, light, and delightful read!
Elizabeth Bennet’s and Darcy’s characters are changed a bit, but in what P&P variation are they not? I think this was a refreshing “what if” story, and a great length when one would like to take an afternoon to oneself, or a trip to the beach or pool.
As part of Austen in August, I read:
Sincerely Yours, Yours by Design Book 2
by Robin Helm.
I loved Sincerely Yours as much as I did the first book in the Christian Fantasy/Austen-adaptation series, Yours by Design. In this continuation of Accidentally Yours, it’s a lot of fun to follow both contemporary Darcy settle into Regency times and Regency Darcy adapt to contemporary times. I read this online one chapter at a time, but it’s a pleasure to read it all at once—and the updates and additions expand the story past what I had already read! It is saying a lot for Ms. Helm’s talent that even though we switch timelines with every chapter, the story continues to flow beautifully. It would have been so easy to make the two Darcys and two Elizabeths similar, but they are unique, making this even more special. I’m looking forward to the third in the series, Forever Yours!
