  • I loved the idea of this book but was disappointed It s neither awful, or great It s simply flat The characters were very uninteresting and boring and there really were no twists and turns throughout the story The author tried to squeeze too many events into a short space of time a weekend Couldn t wait to finish


  • I enjoy Jane Austen as much as the next girl, but this book just hit you over the head and knocked you out with all the Jane Austen Yes, I think it d be pretty fun to go to a weekend conference on Jane Austen, but I never realized how many people form their world views based off of her literature The story line of the two couples was quite predictable, but honestly you re looking for the happy ending when you read a book like this I enjoyed reading about their personal doubts, struggles and how [...]


  • It started out quite promising, as the author was capable of good writingbut unfortunately not great plot building The characters actions feel contrived and forced, as though they were doing what they were told b c it was in the storyline, not because of how it would otherwise go with them There was also no need for the instantaneous hatred of Lorna Darcy by the professor Elizabeth just because he happened to accidentally ram into her with his suitcase Seriously, is there a worse reason for hati [...]


  • This was terrible I didn t want to spend an hour with this book, let alone a whole weekend or My own sentiments mirror those of some of the other reviewers, believing this author to be in firm need of an editor among other things From the overpowering and somewhat overworked language, to the very unlikeable characters and contrived plot, I found myself wanting to give up on this book after page five The main character is ridiculous and feels oddly like a Mary Sue something very par for the cour [...]


  • Katherine is a lecturer of literature at Oxford She likes to read steamy, regency romances in her spare time, and has been corresponding with one of her favorite authors Lorna Warwick She has been burned by relationships too much, and has decided to give up on love A little stressed, and over worked she is looking forward to the Jane Austen Conference at Purely Hall where she has been invited to be a speaker.Robyn lives in Yorkshire, and has a job and boyfriend she doesn t particularly like She [...]


  • Well I was bought this as a present so felt I ought to read it even though I hadn t like the other one by this author that I d bought I was given hope by the comments from Fiona Walker on the back and Lisa Jewell on the front but I actually wonder if they read the book If you like safe, slow, sweet little stories then fine you ll like this but I m afraid I didn t The contrivance with the suitcase drove me crazy I can t believe she d have acted like that I do appreciate that much of what happens [...]


  • Wow, this was really a great book.I expected a Jane Austen romantic tie in but got than I expected At the start and for the first 1 4 of the book I felt like things were progressing predictably but also how I wanted them to progress It s a weird feeling, guessing what you want to happen and having that happen but Victoria Connelly did this well and though I say that events were predictable, the reading wassenior able I liked what was happening I was a little disappointed that things progressed [...]


  • LOVE LOVE LOVEEEED IT D Jane Austen s weekend Quotes about Jane Austen Appreciating Jane Austen s books, films, TV series, sequels And just so MUCH of our dear darling Jane Austen Enough said Two hot guys Two girls Lots of Janeites This was a really funny book huge page turner and if you re an Austen fan totally relate able.


  • 3.5 starsAt 5% into my kindle edition the fact of Lorna Warwick s true identity was verified to readers It was not that difficult to figure out The plot was very predictable for me There were no surprises and the one twist was uncovered, as I said, very early in the book I especially found the men in this book to be very shallow, too predictable and with little appeal to one who loves to read about Mr Darcy Even the friendship between Robyn and Katherine had little connection for me Don t pin pr [...]


  • When i received this book I couldn t wait to start it As with many women I love anything Jane Austin The main character of the book is Katherine Roberts, an English Professor, who also writes books about Jane Austen She is asked to speak at an annual Jane Austen Conference and falls for a male attendee of the course, who has a secret to conceal.The other main character is that on Robyn who also loves Jane Austen and is attending the convention, looking forward to an weekend spent with other peop [...]


  • In this enchanting Austen Inspired novel, three devoted Janeites travel to a Jane Austen Conference that takes place in Purley Hall, a picturesque and historic Georgian mansion in Hampshire, England The conference is hosted by none other than Dame Pamela Harcourt, a famous and distinguished British actress who has played famous roles such as Elizabeth Bennet, Marianne Dashwood in her youth and Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Fanny Dashwood in recent years Our two heroines, Katherine Roberts, an Oxf [...]


  • I really enjoyed this book It was just so much fun The plot lines and relationships were so absorbing Both Katherine and Robyn were quite interesting characters and I think I would have died of mortification going thru what Robyn did with Jace Thankfully we didn t have to hold on too long for issues to be rectified Just the horse incident would have put me over the edge Poor Katherine after Catherine Moreland but with a K is just wondering if she can truly find a man she can trust It had to be s [...]


  • What Janeite doesn t dream of going to a Jane Austen weekend And then meeting the perfect partner while there A good romance novel should tap into the reader s own dreams, and A Weekend With Mr Darcy scores high marks there.I also enjoyed the lovely descriptions of the English countryside in the fall The differences between various regions of the country were subtly drawn with the eye of someone who has been there Descriptions of Chawton, the village in which Jane Austen spent the last years of [...]


  • Eminently readable drivel While I quite enjoyed reading it, I really didn t care about any of the characters and consequently wasn t too bothered how the plot resovled itself not that there was any doubt as the plot was obvious from the beginning It also wasn t anything like as clean and nice as my mother had implied when she d handed me the book and said I had to read it I refuse to believe that real people actually behave in such an immoral and licentious manner as those portrayed here All qui [...]


  • A fun packed Jane Austin weekend with lots of references to all things Jane that stretched the knowledge base of any fan The descriptions made me feel like I was in Jane country It was a fast read and only became a traffic jam at times following the different story lines It made me smile and for a few minutes I was in the company of people who love Jane Austin like I do The story was paced like watching a movie in real time It was a journal of events with the actions and feelings of the characte [...]


  • This was a really sweet and funny book I truly enjoyed it The writing was wonderful and the story flowed beautifully I really loved having a few of my favorite lines quoted, specifically the letter from Persuasion It was hard to put down once you started so don t try to read a little on your lunch hour like I did.


  • Read about 100 pages before I realized I couldn t tell you much about the characters and wasn t too invested in the story I liked Warwick, the mysterious author, and the many Jane Austen references were fun Still, I felt like the Jane Austen Weekend theme has been overly explored and didn t find much to keep my interest.


  • Having just spent a weekend with A Weekend with Mr Darcy I am completely infatuated An absolutely fun and romantic read


  • Ok, so this was light fluffy nonsense, but it was fun fluffy nonsense, and left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside Love all things Austen


  • I have to admit, this kind of books are my guilty pleasure I just adore books that are about books and about people that just love my favorites authors and books When I first read the title I thought I was going to find Mr Darcy traveling from the pages of Pride and Prejudice to this era wait, I wrote about that in my blog cuentosdejulieta and you are invited to read it if you want and if you read Spanish But this is a book about some fans of Jane Austen that get together to celebrate her work a [...]


  • Do you want to spend a perfect weekend with the most charming, dashing heroes and the liveliest , loveliest heroines Here s a story which is actually sunshine on a rainy day as someone has written in a review Victoria Connelly created a balanced blend of modern romance and Austensian features, matter of fact nowadays language with Hampshire dreamy landscape, heroines troubled by modern concerns but romanticly wooed by handsome gentlemanlike heroes who seem just landed on earth from Jane Austen p [...]


  • 3.5 StarsThis is a super cute Austen inspired modern day novel Jane ites are going to love this fun story with loads of references to Austen s works.I loved that the characters not only mentioned Austen s original books, but also specifics about the many screen adaptations Because let s face it, if you re an Austen Fan, you ve seen almost all of the movies, too The characters were likable, but I never really connected with them completely At first I thought the two female leads were a bit non ro [...]


  • This book is truly horrendous I can t believe it has a decent review average It s so trite and boring The most obnoxious thing about this book the author is heavy handed with the Austen references Hey, I love a good inside Austen joke but even I would be rolling my eyes at the way these women talk the characters always make the most obvious Austen reference ever It s like Jane Austen for Dummies, or people who ve only seen the movie adaptations And the Dan Robyn relationship was completely unbel [...]


  • This could ve been a really great story But everything happens in one weekend, which I always have a huge problem with Too quick to really fall into and believe in main female characters are essentially the same sort of boring in that respect It s obvious from the get go how everything will end Okay, I feel bad about ripping this book apart I did love the concept of male author of regency romances I can totally appreciate how much the author loves JA that s why we all read these books She writes [...]


  • Siento mi querida Jane que hayas sido utilizada para esto La sinopsis se ve a interesante, al principio pens que el libro lo ser a Luego vino la decepci n, la verdad me cost mucho acabar esto y no me dejo esa sensaci n agradable post lectura.


  • Ashamed to admit I read it Well, skimmed the last half Dumb, dumb, dumb If I weren t stuck on a 9 hour flight to London with nothing else to read, I would have thrown it out the window.


  • Katherine Roberts is officially off men and the only men she s even willing to give head space to is the fictional ones she reads about in her much loved Jane Austen books as well as the regency romances of Lorna Warwick, with whom she has also struck up a friendship with and is hoping to meet at a Jane Austen conference Despite her name, Robyn Love isn t really feeling the love for boyfriend Jace any and when she happens across the chance to head to a Jane Austen conference she jumps at the ch [...]


  • I m on a bit of an Austen fiction kick lately Sometimes you just want to read fun, predictable books This is that.


  • I am amazed at how many Austenesque novels continue to have Mr Darcy worked into the title Recently there has been A Wife for Mr Darcy, by Mary Lydon Simonsen, The Trouble with Mr Darcy, by Sharon Lathan, The Truth about Mr Darcy, by Susan Adriani, Mr Darcy and the Secret of Becoming a Gentleman, by Maria Hamilton, Only Mr Darcy Will Do, by Kara Louise, What Would Mr Darcy Do , by Abigail Reynolds and ironically, Mr Darcy Goes Overboard, by Belinda Roberts and that is only in the last four month [...]


  • Just under 4 There were some things that bothered me pet peevishly , but for the most part, good fun.I wasn t sure what I d be getting with this one It has a super cute cover one of my faves in my big ole Janeite stack , but I am always a little apprehensive when it comes to anything that smacks of romance I find it even dubious when a Janeite novel opens with a mangling of Austen s famous truth universally acknowledged line But the fact of the matter is, as clich d as this could be, it was als [...]
